  11. 11. LASVEGAS.com :: 11 Brick & Mortar Make sure to take a look up and around while walking the Strip to catch some truly unique architectural features. • If The LINQ seems familiar to some, that’s because its design was inspired bya variety of American urban warehouse districts, particularlyNewYork’s Meat Packing District. • The Grand Staircase at Crystals CityCenter ascends twenty-four feet from the main floor to Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina. Built from eco-friendly bamboo, the staircase was inspired by Rome’s Spanish Steps and uses risers of pink agate that are backlit for maximum visual effect. • Check out the new Nobu Hotel located inside Caesars Palace. AD100 architect/ designer David Rockwell created the subtly glamorous interiors, incorporating natural materials and Japanese motifs such as paper lanterns and cherry blossom-print wall coverings. At the restaurant, book the four tables enclosed in woven-abaca pods.

  14. 14. 14 :: LASVEGAS.com vegas INSIDER S vegas INSIDER Downtown Las Vegas is where this city got its start, and it’s experiencing a resurgence. If you haven’t experienced Downtown, get ready for a wild ride through a diverse, culturally rich neighborhood full of fresh and old-school style. Downtown Morning Start your Downtown tour with a hearty meal, diner-style. Du-par’s at the Golden Gate casino offers Las Vegas’ favorite pancakes. Then peek at Vegas’ beginnings with visits to the Neon Museum, where the iconic and historical signs of the past live on. If you need a caffeine fix, head to The Beat Coffeehouse, where you can grab a latte and some old- school vinyl. If it’s Friday, swing through the Downtown 3rd Farmers Market for incompa- rable freshness. Noon Downtown is chock-full of power lunch spots. Eat where the movers and shakers do with the fierce flavors of Le Thai on Fremont Street or homey Mexican cuisine at La Comida. For more variety, check out the various pie styles served at Pizza Rock on Third Street, or stroll through the colorful new Container Park, a mini-mall stacked with boutique shops and casual eateries like Pinches Tacos, Big Ern’s BBQ and wine bar Bin 702. Night If you’re looking for energy, you’ve found it. Downtown is electric at night, and not just because of the Fremont Street Experience, the original drag of casinos covered with the dazzling Viva Vision LED canopy. Grab dinner at Golden Nugget’s seafood spot Chart House or dine on perfectly aged steaks at Oscar’s Steakhouse, a twist on a classic concept from former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman. On the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard, more energy awaits. Fremont East is the hottest bar district in Las Vegas, where a new breed of party bounces between classic cock- tail spots, hip saloons and multi-experience entertainment venues. All kinds of music booms at Backstage Bar & Billiards, and just across the street, DJs pump up a cool young crowd on the rooftop bar at Commonwealth. A few steps away in the old-school El Cortez casino, swill a throwback Blood & Sand cocktail within the swank, but unpretentious, Parlour Bar. For a more laid-back experience, head to Downtown 3rd for drinks at Downtown Grand’s refreshing Art Bar, or cross over to the Arts District to check out the extensive beer list and creative mixology unfolding at Velveteen Rabbit. Nightlife knows no boundaries in today’s Downtown. 24 Hours Commonwealth ©Anthony Mair ©Neon Museum ©Bin 702

The show’scolorfulandoutrageoushost,theGazil- lionaire, along with his sidekick the hilarious- ly inappropriate Penny Pibbets, lead guests through acts that vary from death defying acrobatics to cheekyburlesque performances. 2 Jubilee! When you think of Las Vegas you think of showgirls, and Jubilee! has long been the last outpost for the bead-and-feather wearing performers. This year the Bally’s show got a revamp, adding new choreography, a story narrative and an empowering message. While the original Bob Mackey costumes are still on display (along with the infamous Sinking of the Titanic num- ber), the show has been modernized to fit in with its counter parts on the Strip. 3 Michael Jackson ONE Everyone knows the music of the King of Pop, but few have expe- rienced it from the unique point of view of Cirque du Soleil. The production powerhouse utilizes its signature acro- bat-meets-circus acts to express the music of Michael Jackson as the performer himself did. A troupe of 63 performers mixes classic Jackson choreography (think the moonwalk and famed Thriller video) with aerial displays and gymnastic exercises for a show that the Jackson estate itself endorsed. 4 Frankie Moreno LIVE at the Stratosphere A Las Vegas must-see, Frankie Moreno delivers original hits with a vintage sound. The talented singer/ songwriter steps into the spotlight at the Stratosphere to perform a rotating mix of new songs and choreography, with his exceptional 10-piece band behind him. Frankie delivers a blend of classic covers and original hits like Tangerine Honey, earning him a nod for Best Strip Headliner and Best All-Around Performer. 5 Jabbawockeez Set to a background of thumping music and laser-dominated light show, the famed dance crew Jabbawockeez deliver eye-popping moves at their theater at Luxor from behind the cover of their signature white masks. The show, dubbed PRiSM, showcases the group’s signature hip- hop inspired artistry, which challenges the audience with unexpected special effects and seemingly impossible choreography. 6 Britney: Piece of Me The pop-princess herself has settled down at Planet Hollywood for a show reminding attendees why she’s been famous since her debut single “…BabyOneMoreTime.”Withnearlyadecade and a half in the business, Spears has plenty 7 Vegas Shows that Amaze Absinthe's Gazz and Penny © Kirvin Doak Communications Jubilee! ©Jerry Metellus vegas INSIDER

A cast of artists don panda suits to tell the spirited tale of a hero on a quest to save his princess. Along the way, witness acrobatic feats, elegant dance numbers and martial arts displays from the Shaolin Monks Monastery Troupe, wearing the Chinese bears signature black and white colors. Backstage Pass Watching from the seats is thrilling but going behind the scenes gives you an intimate view of how Las Vegas’ shows really work. LE RÊVE – THE DREAM BACKSTAGE TOUR Get a glimpse of just how the synchronized swimmers of Le Rêve–The Dream at Wynn Las Vegas rehearse, and just what happens below the surface of the show’s one million-gallon pool at this pre-show tour. Guests get to explore behind the curtain and even climb to the top of the 60-foot diving platform. DOLPHIN HABITAT TRAINER FOR A DAY See just how trainers interact with the famed water mammals at The Mirage’s Dolphin Habitat. Zip on a wetsuit and climb into the pool with the dolphin pod to get a first-hand experience at just what it takes to care for a family of dolphins.

  22. 22. LASVEGAS.com :: 23 I Brock Radke is the food and restaurant editor at Las Vegas Weekly magazine. A longtime local journalist, he’s also the author of the Strip-centric column The Incidental Tourist. By Brock Radke, Las Vegas Food Editor In the past year, a flood of celebrity chefs and groundbreaking food concepts made their return or first-ever landing in Las Vegas. At The LINQ, the brilliant entertainment corridor lead- ing from the Strip to the 550-foot, skyline rede- fining High Roller observation wheel, Brooklyn Bowl rules. It’s a concert hall with bowling lanes, multiple bars, and a restaurant with a fresh take on comfort food from the Bromberg Brothers (of Blue Ribbon fame). Catch a rock band while fueling up on classic fried chicken, fun French bread pizzas or oyster-topped deviled eggs. Super chef Daniel Boulud made his Strip come- back in the spring. The culinary legend has opened the new DB Brasserie at The Venetian, offering a greatest hits menu from his many successful New York restaurants, French fare with Mediterranean and American flourishes. Another big-city chef, Chicago’s Matthais Merges, brought his acclaimed Japanese street food eatery Yusho to the Monte Carlo, a fresh splash of creativity and unexpected surprise. Two food TV superstars extended their popular brands with new restaurants making the Strip a whole lot tastier. Food Network wild man Guy Fieri — a graduate of our own UNLV, by the way — created the fun and flashy Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar at the newly rechristened LINQ Hotel and Casino, an energizedversionofyourfavoriteneighborhood bar with over-the-top food including Fireball lollipop chicken wings and the infamous Bacon Mac-N-Cheese Burger. And just a bit further south on the Strip, the incomparable Giada De Laurentiis chose the new Cromwell boutique hotel as the site of her first-ever restaurant, Giada – The Restaurant, a wide-open dining room with beautiful views of the boulevard and the cuisine queen’s signature touches on contemporary Italian food. Don’t miss Giada’s spaghetti with lemon, basil and shrimp, or her whole roasted chicken cacciatore. Kerry Simon, long one of Vegas’ favorite chefs, debuted Carson Kitchen in the city’s burgeoning Downtown district. It’s no sur- prise that an artist so long tied to the local community would take part in the revitaliza- tion of Las Vegas’ original center, but it’s the hip, scrumptious menu that will make Carson Kitchen your favorite new hot spot. Indulge in fried chicken skins with smoked honey, the delicious butter burger or delectable dough- nut-based bread pudding. Moscow Mule ©Oak & Ivy Craft Craze Whiskey Down at MGM Grand — This reinvigorated casino centerpiece has been transformed into a rustic bar and gaming lounge where select swills like Woodford Reserve Double Oak and Four Roses Single Barrel provide the foundation for handcrafted cocktails like the Kentucky- inspired Downhome Punch or the Fireball- augmented Fire in the Hole. Check out the impressive Scotch selection, too. 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque at Mandalay Bay — Travel backto the Roaring Twenties inside this underground speakeasy on the Strip. 1923 boasts a classic mixology program, infused with custom barrel-aged whisky and cabaret-style performances. Oak & Ivy at Downtown Container Park — Downtown’s newest hot spot is a cozy American whiskey cocktail bar specializing in barrel-aged beverages mixed in batches to create unique, fresh flavor combinations. Longbar at the D – The heart of the Downtown party is this lively spot, always action-packed and ready to serve classic casino cocktails and a great list of craft brews. Giada – The Restaurant ©Erik Kabik The Las Vegas restaurant landscape is one of the most exciting in the world. There’s always something new and thrilling popping up on the glamorous Strip, and these days, intriguing culinary experiences are developing beyond the neon boulevard as well.
  23. 23. 24 :: LASVEGAS.com R Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace is the place for one of Las Vegas’ greatest indulgences, the Krug Room, a private dining experience with carefully curated seasonal menus where you can watch award-winning chefs assembling what will likely be the most memorable meal of your life. No visit here would be complete without classics like Savoy’s truffle-artichoke soup or decadent chocolate fondant. Twist at Mandarin Oriental is the only spot in the United States where you can sample the mind-bending, tastebud-tingling cui- sine from chef Pierre Gagnaire. The multi- course tasting menu is created fresh every season, so you’ll likely never eat this innova- tive food again, French fusion with unlikely and astonishing flavor combinations that only Gagnaire could imagine. Carnevino at The Palazzo is Mario Batali’s and Joe Bastianich’s dream restaurant, a With so many extravagant, splurge-worthy dining experiences available in Las Vegas, it can be difficult to choose. Here are a few tried and true options where prices are worth it for the adventurous culinarian. On a vegas INSIDER OFF THE MENU combination of rustic Italian cuisine and a top-notch steakhouse. The dry-aged beef program creates the most intense flavors you’ll ever taste from a steak, so be sure to share a mighty slab along with hand-made pastas, hand-chopped Piemontese steak tartare and roasted beets with horseradish and arugula that construct an amazing family-style meal. é by José Andrés remains one of Las Vegas’ best kept food secrets, even if it was recently featured on Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown.” Hidden within Andrés’ colorful Spanish eatery Jaleo at The Cosmopolitan, é is a limited-seating, email reservation only 23-course experience where futuristic and experimental techniques are applied to fresh and simple ingredients. Prepare to feast on flavored foams, honey-glazed pork rams, cocoa paper with dried strawberry and juicy, special cuts of the legendary Iberico ham. Some of the most delicious discoveries actually need to be discovered. The unmarked hallway between Jaleo and Blue Ribbon on The Cosmopolitan’s restaurant-stacked third floor leads to The Pizzeria, a late-night hot spot for a peerless New York slice. The long beloved “Gambler’s Special” at the Hard Rock Hotel’s 24-hour diner Mr. Lucky’s will fill up any Vegas reveler, a juicy steak plus grilled shrimp and all the fixins. Inside the new Asian-themed eatery F.A.M.E. at The LINQ, a food truck-styled kiosk serves Fukuburg- er’s trademark grub, including the secret special chicken and waffles dish only locals know about. Off the Strip, Lotus of Siam is one of the best-known Thai restaurants in the country, but regulars know to order off the Northern Thai portion at the back of the menu to experience amazingly balanced, authentic dishes hard to find elsewhere. And though it’s not on the menu at the old- school Italian hangout Piero’s, the luxurious osso buco is everybody’s favorite.
