Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Las Vegas

Le Cirque
If the city is a circus, then this tiny haute-cuisine French restaurant is one of the greatest (food) shows on earth.
Charlie Palmer Steak
Men who love meat and the curvaceous woman who accompany them fill the tables at Charlie Palmer Steak, where vegetarians are positively frowned upon.
The super-modern space of Bar Masa feels a bit like an airport hangar but, stark ambiance aside, chef Masa Takayama is serving up some of the city's most creative Japanese food.
By day, Bartolotta is a great place to take a lunch meeting or spend a few hours transporting yourself back to that Italian meal you had on the coast of Italy way back when.
Don't laugh at the name; THEhotel (no, we haven't leant on caps-lock) is a cut above the rest when it comes to hunkering down in style.
The Artisan Hotel
In the shady stretch between the Strip and downtown, this former Travelodge has been reinvented as a Gothic-style crash pad with free in-room porn - on channel 69, naturally.
Skylofts at MGM
Like most casinos on the Strip, MGM has jumped into the high-end boutique hotel game with the Skylofts, a set of two-storey, ultra-luxury spaces (prices start at $800 per night) located on the top floors of the MGM Grand.
Must-See Museums
Encore Las Vegas
Steve Wynn knows how to build a casino, and Encore is definitely recognisable as the sister property to his first venture, the eponymously-named Wynn.
Green Valley Ranch
Green Valley Ranch is the crown jewel of the Station Casinos family, as well as the ultimate destination in Henderson, just 15 minutes and seven miles from the Strip.
Hard Rock
Feel like you've wandered onto the set of Swingers? You're definitely at The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
Father’s Day Treats for Hedonist Dads
The Vegas outpost of this L.A. hot spot is still low on the radar thanks to its tucked-away location on the mezzanine level of the Planet Hollywood.
Fiamma: Las Vegas Italian Fine Dining
A sheltered intimate environment away from the bustle of Las Vegas, the Fiamma offers Italian fine dining where you'd least expect it.
