Around the World in Las Vegas
Looking to experience a taste of Spain, England, France, Australia and Thailand all in one place? Vacationers will be pleasantly surprised to learn that they can do just that on the Las Vegas Strip. At MGM Resorts hotels, travelers can savor delectable French fare on a Parisian-inspired terrace, sunbathe and live it up at a beach club influenced by the shores of Ibiza or spend the evening singing along with an iconic Aussie band. Below are just a few globally inspired offerings for those looking to take an international journey through Las Vegas.
Sun-lovers in search of an exotic escape can head to DAYLIGHT Beach Club at Mandalay Bay, a sexy and chic retreat inspired by the sands of Ibiza, Spain. Pool-goers can take the daylife experience to the next level while enjoying signature cocktails such as The Baja on a luxe daybed. And just like in Ibiza, world-renowned DJs including Alesso and Sebastian Ingrosso spin hot beats in a high-energy, fun-filled atmosphere.
For a very French affair (and fare), foodies should reserve a table at Chef of the Century Joël Robuchon’s namesake restaurant at MGM Grand. Not only can diners indulge in delicacies such as Le Poulet Fermier, but they can feast their eyes on the lavishly decorated restaurant modeled after Chef Robuchon’s villa in France. The main room is draped with royal purple fabric and a dramatic crystal chandelier while the picturesque Parisian terrace features a vertical garden of ivy, providing a magical backdrop for a distinct French evening.
There’s no need to cross the pond for a traditional tea time – Petrossian at Bellagio offers a daily Afternoon Tea Service including freshly baked scones, preserves, and of course, English tea sandwiches. While sipping teas imported from around the world, guests can enjoy live piano performances for a completely posh experience. Those looking for a stronger fix can try a cocktail from the bar’s recently revamped menu such as the Caviar Cube Martini, shaken not stirred.
Travelers in need of a tranquil escape can indulge with a “trip” to Thailand at Spa Bellagio. The Thai Yoga Massage uses traditional techniques to help improve flexibility while transporting spa-goers into a deep state of relaxation. The spa’s meditation room also offers a serene sanctuary that is surrounded by calming water walls and glowing candles.
It’s “Saturday Night Fever” every night at The Australian Bee Gees Show – A Tribute to the Bee Gees at Excalibur. The group’s unbelievable resemblance and sound to the legendary band keeps the audience’s toes tapping and bodies swaying all evening long. State-of-the-art sound, superb lighting and giant screens featuring video clips, live camera images and stunning graphics help bring five decades of memorable music to life for a night outback guests will never forget.
