With NetSuite’s SuiteWorld right around the corner, now is the time to plan to get the most out of your time in Vegas. Here’s an extended list of fun, fitness, and food experiences you don’t want to miss this September.
What to do in Las Vegas
From the out-of-this-world views on the observation wheel at the LINQ Hotel to hiking through the colorful pink, white, and red sandstone formations at Valley of Fire State Park—what happens in Las Vegas is too good to keep secret! Crush a round of golf in your very own bay at Topgolf, and cool down after with a dip in one of their two luxurious pools.
Surround yourself with nostalgia at The Pinball Hall of Fame museum where you can spend hours playing retro pinball machines. Then head over to Caesars which has everything you need for a night of galavanting and fun like their ICEBAR that resembles an igloo and Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar.
Where to Eat in Vegas
The food scene in Las Vegas is enough to get any foodie riled up. Roi Choi, the street food king, runs Best Friend, an LA meets Las Vegas-style restaurant. The Koreatown-inspired menu offers a unique experience with dishes like Korean BBQ tacos, grapefruit soju (an alcoholic drink made from rice), and Frosé slushies. Netflix’s The Chef Show stars Roi Choi and the legendary Jon Favreau, who is no stranger to Las Vegas’ wild side. Don’t believe us, rewatch Swingers!
With locations in Miami, Dallas, and even Singapore, Yardbird features classic southern comfort staples like chicken & waffles, shrimp & grits, and skillet cornbread. These panhandle favorites are prepared by Chef Kimberly-Ann Ryan, winner of Hell's Kitchen season 16!
Have a one-of-a-kind experience inside the jewelry-box-styled dining room at Beauty & Essex. Their menu features everything from grilled cheese, smoked bacon & tomato soup dumplings to roasted bone marrow, and maple glazed Brussel sprouts. Take home a unique gift from their elevated pawn shop.
You don’t have to travel off The Strip for a great steak. Visit Wolfgang Puck’s CUT at The Palazzo Las Vegas for 21-day wet-aged filet mignon and 40 oz. bone-in Tomahawk steak. Drooling yet?
“Off-the-Strip” Local Favorites:
While Peppermill is technically still on The Strip, it’s worth a trip to fully envelop yourself in this iconic Las Vegas experience. Enjoy classic omelets, clubhouse sandwiches, and Bloody Marys in this ‘70s lounge.
Therapy offers lobster grilled cheese, red velvet waffle sliders, and cocktails like The Smash—made with bourbon, blackberries, fresh lime, and mint.
Craft beer lovers everywhere can rejoice at Tenaya Creek Brewery! They rotate food trucks daily and have also won multiple Great American Beer Festival awards over the years.
In the mood for some Vietnamese? Look no further than the Black Sheep, owned by top chef Jamie Tran and features items like grilled Spanish octopus.
The smell of BBQ is enough to make anyone’s stomach growl. Rollin Smoke BBQ offers staples like baby back ribs and chopped brisket sandwiches. Licking your fingers is encouraged!
Bonus Hidden Gems:
At first glance, you may think Las Vegas is a one-trick pony, but Sin City is home to many surprises. The Chandelier Bar in The Cosmopolitan allows you to sip in style while beaded curtains sparkle overhead. Order one of their off-menu drinks called The Verbena which will leave you numb and speechless (literally). Near the Chandelier Bar, you can satisfy your late-night cravings, by grabbing a slice of not-so-secret pizza topped with a dab of ricotta cheese at Secret Pizza.
Transport back in time to the prohibition era at Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den at Resorts World. There’s no password necessary to enter the speakeasy, but the door remains hidden so be on the lookout!
