Mash Up Between New And Old Vegas

Jeppe Christensen


Start your day with breakfast or brunch at this very kitsch and Old Vegas-style diner. It's an instant throwback to the 60s or 70s. This place is not to be missed!

Red Rock Canyon

After a healthy brunch, burn off some calories by doing a hike at Red Rock Canyon. In contrast to the bright lights and hype of the Strip, Red Rock offers desert beauty, towering red cliffs and abundant wildlife. Ride the 13-mile scenic loop drive in your car ... or on bike!

Agave Restaurant

Pretty close to Red Rock Canyon, this is one of the best Mexican restaurants in Las Vegas. Experience flavorful cuisine in a cool contemporary Latin setting.

Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa

Need to recharge your batteries? Head across the street to Red Rock Casino. There's a brand new cinema featuring a huge IMAX screen. Also at Red Rock, probably the best bowling ally in Las Vegas. If you want to stay off-strip, this resort has some great rooms and an awesome pool area.

Town Square

Town Square Las Vegas is an outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment center on Las Vegas Boulevard at the junction of I-15 and the 215 Beltway. Mainly visited by locals, it's a nice alternative to Fashion Show Mall and Forum Shops.

Mastro's Ocean Club

Okay, this steakhouse is on the Strip at the Crystals Mall, and it's outrageously expensive. Though you get what you pay for. The food is out of this world and service is impeccable. The Seafood Tower is hands down the best thing I've ever had.

The Lady Silvia

The Lady Silvia , situated close to old downtown Vegas, offers craft cocktails in a neat speakeasy-like environment. No external signage or obvious entry markings make it a cool experience to find during your vist, while the assorted furniture and no smoking make for a relaxing spot to enjoy drinks and conversation. Make sure you get Safa to make your drink.

I would stay at: The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

If you want to stay on the strip, stay here! The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is a luxury resort offering a decidedly different perspective, situated in the heart of The Strip directly between CityCenter and Bellagio. Compared to the other mega resorts, the Cosmopolitan feels kind of boutique-y, and the decor is elegant yet edgy.
