Top casinos to hit in Las Vegas in a luxury car
What would Las Vegas be without its casinos? Sure, there is plenty to do, and plenty of fun to be had for any visitor. But unless you visit one of these classic and timeless entertainment venues, your visit will not be complete.
Of course, one of the city’s greatest blessings may also be its biggest curse. Vegas has become so famous for its casinos, you can now find one around every street corner. Some of them are probably quite far below your expectations.
That means before your trip, you should be sure to do your research on the ideal venues to visit. To help in that regard, here are the top 6 casinos in Vegas you must hit with your next luxury car rental.
1) The Cosmopolitan
Over the past decade, and with the gradual decline of the Mirage, the Cosmopolitan has turned into perhaps the most famous go-to casino in Vegas. Glass walls stretch from the floor to ceiling, offering a premier view of the city’s world-famous strip. Meanwhile, 100,000 square feet of casino offers something for every type of gambler and even the highest of budgets.
Slot machines with bet up to $500 are just as popular as the high-stakes poker games regularly taking place. Live sports betting is ideal for fans of football and niche sports alike. And when the gambling is done, a stop in the bedazzled Chandelier bar is an absolute must for high-end visitors.
2) The Venetian
If you’ve been to the real deal, it might not excite you as much at first. But there is little doubt that the Venetian offers the most unique atmosphere in Vegas. Here, gondoliers welcome guests to a replica of the famous St. Mark’s Square, while passersby sing opera tunes in the internal luxury shopping mall.
Then, of course, there’s the casino. Together with its sister property Palazzo, the Venetian offers perhaps the city’s most elegant gambling venue. On two floors, hundreds of table games await guests. Meanwhile, the Venetian Poker Room is home to both casual players and the DeepStack Extravaganza, one of the most popular tournaments in the world.
3) The Bellagio
The name alone inspires countless stories. If you leave Vegas without having visited this legendary casino and hotel at least once, you’ll have missed out on stories and memories alike. It’s no coincidence that the Bellagio won the AAA Five Diamond Award, denoting the countries best hotels and casinos, 15 years in a row between 2000 and 2015.
No less than fourteen restaurants wait to feed the hungry (and thirsty) visitors. The Fountains of Bellagio are one of the city’s most famous attractions. A fine arts gallery and botanical garden offer serenity after a gambling binge in the 116,000 square foot casino. And of course, entertainers from Ricky Martin to Cirque du Soleil entertain guests in sophisticated ways.
4) Mandalay Bay
Make no mistake: Mandalay Bay is a mega resort. More than 3,000 rooms offer plenty of space for guests and make it less than ideal if you want some peace and quiet. But if you’re looking for entertainment, you’ve come to the right spot.
Boxing and MMA events take place almost daily in the 12,000 seat Events center. The House of Blues, meanwhile, features modern music. A nightclub offers plenty of space to party, while the exotic Shark Reef allows you to be safely surrounded by sharks. And that’s before we even mention the 160,000 square foot casino, one of the largest in the United States.
5) The MGM Grand
Few things are more quintessentially Las Vegas than magic shows. So why not visit the biggest magic show in town? The MGM Grand is home to David Copperfield’s act, along with a 170,000 square foot gambling space that even includes a non-smoking poker room. For the sports fans among us, one of the world’s largest gambling spots with 60 screens is open.
For those less inclined to gamble or watch a good show, shopping opportunities abound in the hotel. Boutiques find their home alongside beauty, jewelry, and fashion shops. Renowned chefs Masaharu Morimoto, Tom Colicchio, Michael Mina, and Joël Robuchon show off their skills in the hotel’s 21 individual restaurants, while the Hakkasan Nightclub hosts world-famous DJs and welcomes the night owls among us.
6) Red Rock Casino
It’s not just a tourist destination. Located on the West end of the city, it’s also a popular destination for locals. As a result, the atmosphere at Red Rock is considerably different from the other names on the list. Of course, the drive there might just make that luxury rental worth it.
But Red Rock Casino is more than just a drive away. It’s also opulent, with a chain of more than 3.1 million individual Swarovski and Preciosa crystals that measures no less than 99 miles featuring throughout the resort. A private high-level poker room is perfect for high-end guests, while the new 7,000 seats outdoor amphitheater makes for perfect concerts poolside.
