Sin City Showdown

BY Allison Mitchell | September 25, 2017 | Feature Features National

Whether you're looking to revel until the wee hours, dine impeccably or unwind poolside, new offerings at the W Las Vegas and The Venetian Las Vegas satisfy let-loose cravings for luxury travelers of all tastes.
Lively cabaret and timeless love songs collide in "BAZ—A Musical Mash-Up" at The Palazzo Theatre.

W Las Vegas

Modern and sexy, the W Las Vegas (Mega suites from $439 per night) made its grand debut just under a year ago with 289 Philippe Starck-designed rooms boasting extravagant wall murals and spacious peek-a-boo showers. For a truly sumptuous slumber, book the sprawling 2,382-square-foot Extreme WOW Suite (from $5,000 per night), which was custom-designed in collaboration with Grammy winner Lenny Kravitz.

Attached to the SLS Las Vegas, the W offers access to world-class eateries, including Katsuya and Cleo. A must-book bite awaits at Bazaar Meat by José Andrés, where the James Beard Award-winning chef serves a carnivorous feast marked by an innovative take on the traditional. Start with the Super-Giant Pork-Skin Chicharrón (servers crack the oversize pork rind tableside). Then, dig into the jaw-dropping 9- to 11-pound suckling pig, available by the quarter ($160) or whole ($540, by pre-order only). Savor every forkful before snatching a plate of cream puffs as the tiered dessert cart makes its rounds.

Make a splash at W’s rooftop WET Deck. Walls of contemporary art and a slew of private cabanas turn up the heat as you sip on a signature Floradora cocktail. As the sun sets, head to The Glam App salon, where a team of beauty experts will primp you from head to toe. And once you’re all dolled up, it’s game on at the neon Living Room Bar, where a Keith Lemley-designed “desert” garden provides the perfect backdrop for revelry as a live DJ spins.
