Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Las Vegas

Border Grill
TV chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken established an outpost of their popular Border Grill restaurant chain alongside Mandalay Beach, and promptly scooped up awards for their spicy fare.
Eiffel Tower
Stratosphere Observation Deck
Soak up the views of the Strip from the tallest point in Vegas.
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.
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.
New York-New York Coaster
As Sin City's scariest coaster, Manhattan Express will please even the most die-hard adrenaline junkie.
The Big Shot
Get a taste of weightlessness with the four Gs of force on this awesome ride way up in the desert sky.
Red Rock Lanes
Try your hand at bowling, Vegas-style, at these super-trendy lanes.
Adventure Las Vegas
Got a hangover and don't want to lie in the sun all day? Then book a tour with Adventure Las Vegas, and enjoy a non-drinking day out.
Rocket Fizz
All the fizzy drinks and sweets you could want, and more. Not just for kids.
Ethel M Chocolate
Sweet tooth? Ethel's Chocolate Factory is the place to go and there are free samples to boot.
Atomic Testing Museum
Engrossing displays and interactive exhibits focus on the controversial Nevada Test Site and the broader impact of the nuclear age.
Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower. In Las Vegas. Need we say more?
Yard House
Rough around the edges, Yard House has become the go-to spot for those seeking decent beer and decent music. Not a Hilton sister in sight.
Pink Taco
Pink Taco is one of the more casual eateries at The Hard Rock.
Payard
This brunch spot and candy store is like an adult version of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.
Luv-It
On scorching days, locals and savvy tourists line up at this tiny shack to cool off with Luv-It's famous custard.
La Creperie
For breakfast, lunch or a late-night snack, a crepe on the cobblestoned Le Boulevard at Paris Las Vegas is a magnificent treat.
Dos Caminos
Served with a hefty side order of Mexican culture, Dos Caminos will line the stomach of even the most die-hard tequila-guzzler.
Diego
If you're craving a good mole, but don't want to lose the hip, fun vibe of Vegas, Diego is your spot.
California Pizza Kitchen
This famed thin-crust pizza and chopped-salad joint has become comfort food for many West Coasters, and is a great place to nosh at all hours of the night.
Minus 5
We're not entirely sure why anyone would willingly subject themselves to subzero temperatures, but the 1,200-square-foot ice lounge at Mandalay Bay is certainly different.
Napoleon’s
This European-style bar is a perfect spot to get away from the noise of the casinos, or to take a meeting in a refined setting away from the conference halls of Paris and Bally's.
Frankie’s Tiki Room
This real-deal Polynesian-themed bar is unlike anything else you'll find in Vegas.
Downtown Cocktail Room
Just off Fremont Street, this cosy and dark lounge is favored by black-clad artists and media moguls who like the discreet, speakeasy feel.
Center Bar
Looking for a California girl or boy? Then Center Bar, found in the centre of the casino at The Hard Rock, is where you'll find your poison.
Centrifuge Bar
The Centrifuge is a popular pre-party, post-poker spot for a drink on the casino level of the MGM Grand.
Times Square
Know all the words to Don McLean's American Pie? This casual pub is the place for you.
Artisan Lounge
Mixologist Tom Sunick presides over this funky, masterpiece artwork-bedecked lounge, which feels like a film noir set or a Masterpiece Theatre production of Clue.
Todd English P.U.B.
Celebrity chef Todd English presents his posh take on a traditional Brit pub, albeit a trendier, significantly tastier take.
Samba
Served Brazilian-style, all kinds of mouthwatering meats are brought to your table until you ask servers to stop or, indeed, pop.
Mon Ami Gabi
Mon Ami Gabi, romantic and low-key by Vegas standards, is one of the few restaurants with Strip-side terrace seating.
BARMASA
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.
