Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Las Vegas

Red Square
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.
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.
Diablo’s Cantina
Part-bar, part-diner, Diablo's Cantina offers a kitsch Mexican experience in the heart of Vegas-once again, courtesy of the Light Group.
Shadow Bar
This chic lounge, with a frosted glass façade and the requisite comfy couches and plush chairs, has bartenders who do everything from breathing fire to turning handsprings as they mix drinks.
Voodoo Rooftop
High atop The Rio, the Voodoo provides a fantastic vantage point of the entire Strip from its stepped-back position on Flamingo Road.
Mandarin Bar
Sleek and swanky, with floor-to-ceiling windows and supreme views of the Strip, Mandarin Bar is a cut above the rest.
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.
Peppermill
Excess comes as standard at Pettermill Fireside Lounge, a kitschy affair that's perfect for hot make-out sessions with sexy strangers.
Petrossian Bar
Lobby bars may not maketh the entire night, but they're certainly a good place to start; and what better one to choose than Petrossian Bar, brimming with elegant hotel guests thirsty for Champagne.
Lily
With its award-winning cocktail creator and large windows with uncompromised views over the Bellagio resort Casino, it’s not hard to see why this is Las Vegas’ latest hot spot….
Drop Bar
Here's a chill-and-chat nightlife alternative to the see-and-be-seen scene at the swanky Whiskey Bar.
Foundation Room
Find a way to get into the Foundation Room on the 43rd-floor of Vegas' Mandalay Bay resort and you'll find yourself looking at one of the most stunning views of the Strip.
Frankie’s Tiki Room
This real-deal Polynesian-themed bar is unlike anything else you'll find in Vegas.
Gold Lounge
Styled on the Elvis' Graceland, Gold Lounge is every bit as opulent and as OTT as you'd hope.
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.
Coyote Ugly
If you've seen the movie of the same name, Coyote Ugly needs little introduction; think bartenders donning barely-there get-ups and seriously bad attitudes.
Blue Martini
Martini magic happens at the Vegas outpost of this popular drinking chain - all with added Vegas charm, as you can imagine.
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.
