Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Las Vegas

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.
Trump International
Not content with ruling the hotel roost in New York, Donald has made his move on Vegas with a tower that trumps most of the nearby competition.
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).
Stratosphere Observation Deck
Soak up the views of the Strip from the tallest point in Vegas.
Westin Lake Las Vegas
The Moroccan-flavoured desert oasis of the Westin Lake Las Vegas stresses rest and relaxation over revelry.
Gallagher’s
A New York original (since 1927), this sports-themed spot is famous for dry-aged steaks.
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.
The Palazzo
Like its sister property, The Venetian, The Palazzo boasts a star-studded roster of restaurants, high-end shopping, and a super-sized spa.
Planet Hollywood
Planet Hollywood bears almost no resemblance to its predecessor, the Arabian Nights-themed Aladdin, and that's a good thing.
Neon Museum
Have an appreciation for flickering neon signs? You've come to the right place - if not on the Vegas Strip, than here at the Neon Museum.
Caesars Palace
Like Wayne Newton, the Rat Pack, Tom Jones, and Bobby Darin, the AAA four-diamond Caesars remains an enduring Las Vegas icon.
Fin
Fin, an awaited addition to the ever-evolving Mirage, is a refined spot in an intimate glass setting with gold and jade accents - not at all your typical Chinese restaurant.
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
Undefeated
Agent Provocateur
The Country Club
Strip House
Spago
Rao’s
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.
Tabù
Meld Jeffrey Beers' architectural expertise with the special-effects artistry of Roger Parent, former art director for Cirque du Soleil, and the result is a mind-blowing club with an interior that shifts and changes throughout the night.
Mystère
Light and fancy-free, Mystère proves that Circque du Soleil doesn't always take itself quite so seriously.
Le Rêve
Another day, another Cirque show: This one's thin on storyline but thick on sets and stunts.
The fourth Cirque to open in Vegas, Kà blows away audiences as much for its trademark theatrics as for its amazing stage-a custom-built contraption that moves in almost every direction.
