Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Las Vegas

Bazaar Meat by José Andrés
Bazaar Meat by José Andrés is a glorious meathouse with Philippe Stark-designed interiors and a menu of masterfully cooked meats.
Nobu Hotel
From the great minds that brought us black miso cod, the Nobu Hotel at Caesars in Las Vegas is wallet-meltingly luxurious and design-conscious.
Craftsteak
Chef Tom Colicchio (of New York's Craft and Gramercy Tavern) is the latest James Beard award-winning kitchen god to toss his toque into the Vegas dining scene, and he does so at Craftsteak.
Botero
Though Botero attracts a fair amount of serious foodies, who come for the dry-aged rib eye with chimichurri sauce and the artichoke-and-fennel-stuffed loup de mer, the steakhouse also draws a stylish pre-clubbing set.
Shadow Creek
Brush up on your swing at Shadow Creek, one of Sin City's plushest golf courses.
M Resort
M Resort is where Nevada's brightest young things come to party and hunker down between fine thread-count sheets afterwards.
Carnevino
Gorgeously rich interiors and a bloodthirsty menu of the best cuts of beef set the tone at Carnevino, the third venue from Joe Bastianich and Mario Batali.
MGM Grand
Though it's soon to be overtaken by other Strip resorts in the throes of expanding, for the moment the MGM Grand reigns as the largest hotel in the country.
Palms Place
If a spot on the Strip isn't paramount, it's hard to imagine cooler digs than the apartment-style rooms at Palms Place, the Palms' sister property.
Hotel 32
This hotel-within-a-hotel, located on the top floor of the Monte Carlo has a private porte cochere, an express elevator and in-suite check-in, so you'll never have to mix with the hoi polloi if you don't want to.
Delmonico
Elegant and old-school, Delmonico Steakhouse is tucked down a quiet hallway of The Venetian hotel.
Andre’s
Locals mourned the closing of Andre's downtown restaurant, but the refurbished space at the Monte Carlo (which also stole much of its sister location's staff) continues to delight.
Red Rock Resort
This so-called 'locals' casino' combines breathtaking views of the flaming Red Rock Canyon with a serene spa, sumptuous dining, hip nightlife, and state-of-the-art gaming.
Palms
Redefining hip, Palms Casino Resort attracts celebrities from Tara Reid and Lara Flynn Boyle to Jamie Foxx and the 'N Sync boys (back in the day).
The Bellagio
Named after the Lake Como village in northern Italy, Bellagio is the epitome of new Las Vegas - luxury with only a modicum of tackiness.
Brand
The Light Group brings an element of cool back to the Monte Carlo hotel with Brand, Sin City's newest steakhouse, which fills the space previously occupied by Blackstone's and the Houdini Lounge.
Wynn Las Vegas
Wynn Las Vegas is the new signature resort of Steve Wynn, who has become an icon in the city and is considered a living legend in America's adult Disneyland.
Mandalay Bay
Mandalay Bay is a mysterious chameleon-like resort always turning into whatever you want it to be.
Caesars Palace
Like Wayne Newton, the Rat Pack, Tom Jones, and Bobby Darin, the AAA four-diamond Caesars remains an enduring Las Vegas icon.
PURE
Aureole
Celebrated chef, Jirí Král, promotes gastronomic fusion as expressions of art. Regardless of its culinary provisions, however, Aureole – on the top floor of the Czech Republic’s tallest building – is unrivalled in its posi
Red Square
Tao
Four Seasons Spa
Papillon
Agent Provocateur
Strip House
Spago
Nobu
L’atelier
Hand-made leather accessories, jewellery and clothes from two arty Israeli friends.
Joël Robuchon
Jöel Robuchon is another awesome addition to the MGM Grand's already impressive collection of celebrity chef restaurants.
Jasmine
Jasmine is a cut above and then some from your typical out-of-a-cardboard-box-with-splintery-chopsticks Chinese restaurant.
Cut
You'll see everyone from business execs to foodies to the cast of The Hills at Cut, Wolfgang Puck's Vegas hot spot.
Wynn Golf Club
Tom Fazio does it again. He has magically transformed the old Desert Inn Golf Course into an 18-hole oasis right on the Strip-making it the easiest place to play for Wynn guests.
Wynn Poker Room
One of Las Vegas' newest and most hyped poker rooms, the Wynn is a high-tech, comfy place to play.
Vdara Spa
It's difficult to be unique in the sea of Vegas' super spas, but Vdara stands apart as the city's only green spa.
Trump Tower Spa
The spa of choice for visiting A-listers, ol' Donald certainly knows how to spoil us within the sleek confines of Trump.
Aria Spa
Proving once and for all that size is indeed everything, The Spa at Aria certainly doesn't scrimp on space. And stuffed with amenities, it'll please even the most discerning spa junkie.
Spa Mandalay
Spa Mandalay is a world-class, 30,000-square-foot spa located on the lower level of the hotel.
Sundance Helicopters
Go up, up and away with Sundance Helicopters, a tour operator that'll enable you to look down on Vegas and its surrounding environs.
