Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Las Vegas

Agent Provocateur
Andiron Steak and Sea
Andiron Steak and Sea conjures a Hamptons-esque vibe, offering a creative menu of American classics and live music in Downtown Summerlin four nights a week.
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.
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.
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.
Beijing Noodle 9
This noodle joint at Caesars Palace gives Noodles at the Bellagio some much-needed competition.
Bettie Page
Indie, vintage, rockabilly - this boutique rocks retro.
Canyon Ranch SpaClub
 The Canyon Ranch SpaClub Expansion at the Palazzo is definitely something to ooh and ahh over.
Carson Kitchen
Found in Vegas’ trendy downtown, Carson Kitchen is the swan song of late celebrity chef Simon Kerry, serving unique twists on comfort food classics.
Delano Las Vegas
With a gold exterior that glimmers in the desert sunshine, Delano Las Vegas is a bold and stylish hotel for those looking for luxurious stay in the city.
Drift Spa at Palms
Whether you want to centre your chi with a candlelight yoga class or loosen sore muscles with a soak and a massage, the Spa at the Palms has you covered.
Drop Bar
Here's a chill-and-chat nightlife alternative to the see-and-be-seen scene at the swanky Whiskey Bar.
Encore Spa at Wynn
It's difficult to one-up the spas in this town, but Wynn has done just that with his spa at Encore.
Fashion Show
Two-million-square-feet of unadulterated retail therapy visited by 10-million people a year.
Fiamma
Fiamma is a dimly-lit Italian trattoria in the middle of restaurant row at MGM Grand that's a hidden gem for those in the know-including locals and Vegas regulars who don't need to see and be seen.
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.
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.
Giada
Found inside the Cromwell Hotel, Giada is the mega-watted Italian restaurant from celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis with an extensive menu.
Hachi
Nobu veterans and husband-wife team Martin Swift and Linda Rodriguez are the culinary brains behind this sushi spot at the Red Rock Resort.
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.
Jean-Philippe
Willy Wonka, eat your heart out. The chocolate fountain at this spot, located toward the back of the hotel past the conservatory, brings onlookers from all over Vegas.
Joël Robuchon
Jöel Robuchon is another awesome addition to the MGM Grand's already impressive collection of celebrity chef restaurants.
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.
L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon
L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon offers a sleek and unpretentious French dining experience from its spot within the MGM Grand, just steps from the slot machines.
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.
Lavo
A stunning glass-and-wood screened bridge flanked by Turkish sinks lead to Lavo's upstairs nightclub.
Le Cirque
If the city is a circus, then this tiny haute-cuisine French restaurant is one of the greatest (food) shows on earth.
Le Rêve
Another day, another Cirque show: This one's thin on storyline but thick on sets and stunts.
Lily Bar and Lounge
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….
M Resort
M Resort is where Nevada's brightest young things come to party and hunker down between fine thread-count sheets afterwards.
Mandara Spa
Mandara is the Sanskrit word for calm, and finding that state of serenity is what brings a suave set to this urban oasis.
Mandarin Bar
Sleek and swanky, with floor-to-ceiling windows and supreme views of the Strip, Mandarin Bar is a cut above the rest.
Mandarin Spa
Let's face it: Most Vegas spas have fairly plush wet areas, and the 27,000-square-foot, bi-level spa at the Mandarin Oriental is no exception.
MGM Grand Spa
This is truly a connoisseurs' spa with rich wood floors, ultra-plush lounge chairs, and even a menu that recommends treatments for your level of spa experience.
Miracle Mile Shops
With its urbanised architecture and cutting-edge fashion the Miracle Mile is the place to see, be seen and shop.
Mix
When the occasion calls for a big first impression, head to Mix.
Morels
A cross between next-door neighbour Bouchon (at the Venetian) and Drai's (the after-hours club at Bill's - formerly the Barbary Coast), this sultry newcomer is not your average brasserie.
Mr. Lucky’s 24/7
Mr. Lucky's is the coolest 24-hour coffee shop in town-with comfort food and rock 'n' roll style, and little in the way of pomp and circumstance.
Nobu
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.
