Hot Off The Strip: Luxury Las Vegas

Just because summer is winding down doesn’t mean the scene is cooling off in the slightest in Las Vegas. We just received word of a whole new slew of happenings that will keep A-listers coming back all autumn long.

Las Vegas’ newest resort opened its doors on August 23. SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is an all-encompassing resort and casino with more than 1,600 guest rooms and suites in three towers. There is also 80,000 square feet of meeting space and a collection of sbe’s restaurant and nightlife brands. Now open, the hotel offers live music hotspot, The Sayers Club, the edu nightclub Foxtail and the 20,000-square-foot mega-club, LiFE. Additionally, SLS Las Vegas features a selection of dining concepts, including Ku Noodle and Bazaar Meat by Jose Andres, Katsuya, Cleo, Umami Burger, The Griddle Cafe, The SLS Buffet and The Perq. The property also has a 10,000-square-foot Fred Segal retail experience and a sports book. 

The Delano Las Vegas, a luxury-all suit hotel, will debut at Mandalay Bay today, September 2. The hotel has completed the installation of its first exterior Delano sign. Bathhouse Spa at Delano Las Vegas has also opened its doors. Day passes for the Spa will be available to all Delano Las Vegas and MGM Resorts International hotel guests. In collaboration between MGM Resorts International and Morgans Hotel Group, the spa’s menu uses locally sourced ingredients like cacti and wildflowers. We hear the immune-boosting Mil and Honey treatments feature edible raw bee pollen from the Mohave region.  Also at the Delano, Della’s Kitchen serves up a menu centered around local and regional ingredients, including Delano Las Vegas’ own greenhouse, which will supply herbs for the desert-sustainable breakfast and lunch menu. Menu items include fresh, pressed juices; savory salads; pan inis, sandwiches and burgers; and more. 

On September 12, Palms Casino Resort gets spicy as Chef Tony Hu brings his Lao Sze Chuan to Las Vegas for the first time. A reinvention of Hu’s popular Chicago-based restaurant, Lao Sze Chuan introduces a menu of Sze Chuan cuisine, as well as a selection of popular Mandarin, Cantonese, Hunan and Shanghai dishes.
