But this a destination that’s as multifaceted as it is flashy, with a recent surge of hip hotels, nationally acclaimed restaurants, and arty attractions adding a more discerning dose of culture to the Strip and beyond. Here’s where to stay, eat, drink, and do to experience an unexpected side of Las Vegas.

Each of its 293 boudoir-inspired rooms is beautifully appointed with plush bedding and the spa-like bathrooms are luxurious. World-class amenities include a rooftop pool with stunning views of the city, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a restaurant helmed by award-winning chef Daniel Humm.

Nobu Hotel Las Vegas at Caesars Palace

This distinctive boutique property introduces a serene Japanese influence to the Vegas scene. The wabi-sabi-inspired rooms feature a “stripped down” aesthetic with minimalistic and modern design.

Honey Salt 

With its farm-to-table philosophy and emphasis on local ingredients, Honey Salt in Downtown Summerlin serves up some seriously scrumptious eats with a southern twist. Come for brunch to try the excellent avocado toast with pickled fresno chiles, or dinner for a perfect steak frites with shishito peppers. The cocktails are also something to write home about.

With its wood-paneled walls and old-school light fixtures, this Arts District beer hall doubles as a time machine to the Seventies. Come to sample nearly two dozen local and international beers on tap, with 50 more available in bottles and cans. 

What to Do: 

Arts District

In addition to hosting an array of galleries, the neighborhood has become home to some of the city’s best vintage shops like Hotflash Designs, eateries like Taverna Costera, and antique stores along Antique Alley.
