Where to Stay

Las Vegas, Nevada
I suggest staying at The Venetian or The Palazzo. These hotels are not only the most conveniently located (and connected), but also luxurious. And the beds are so cozy!

Day 1: Rosina Bar in The Venetian

Las Vegas, Nevada
Arrive in Vegas, check into your hotel, freshen up, then head out for the night. Pro tip: take it easy night one. I suggest Rosina Bar because this timeless yet modern cocktail retreat embodies old-school allure with its Art Deco flair. Gold, pearl, and burgundy tones are complemented by opulent crystal chandeliers and velvet u-shaped banquettes. Aesthetically, Rosina is my favorite classy and intimate bar in Vegas.

Day 2: Bouchon for Brunch

Las Vegas, Nevada
Sleep in and then head to brunch at Bouchon which is located in the Venetian. The baked goods paired with mimosas are a heavenly combination.

Day 2: Shop at the Grand Canal Shoppes

Las Vegas, Nevada
I remember going to The Venetian when I was younger, and being completely in awe of the Grand Canal Shoppes. Extravagant Italian-inspired architecture and sculptures, vast hand-painted baby blue sky ceilings, gorgeous gondolas, the finest restaurants and shopping galore. Years later, it still feels so grand and unique to experience something like this in the middle of the desert, you know?

Day 2: Gondola Ride

Las Vegas, Nevada
This was my first time experiencing the gondola ride at the Grand Canal Shoppes and it was so much more fun than I expected. Kaj sang us classic Italian songs as he rowed us, it was magical.

Day 2: Lunch at Black Tap

Las Vegas, Nevada
Known for their burgers, beer and "CrazyShake" milkshakes, Black Tap is the perfect place to go for a casual lunch. You can either sit outside and enjoy the view of the gondolas and the Vegas Strip, or sit inside and watch whatever game is on. This spot has more of a bar vibe, but it has quirky decor and the atmosphere is lively and fun. This restaurant is also located in The Venetian which makes life that much more convenient.

Las Vegas, Nevada
After a day of shopping, it's time to go back to your hotel and freshen up for your night adventures. Maybe pop a bottle of champagne while you're at it.

Day 2: Drinks at Electra

Las Vegas, Nevada
Electra is a cocktail lounge located in The Palazzo. The vibe at Electra is more open and great for larger groups. If you're looking to make some new friends, this is the place.

Day 2: Party & Make memories

Las Vegas, Nevada
It's time to go out and experience the legendary Vegas club scene. There are endless clubbing options depending on your mood and what DJ you're looking to see. Maybe you document this part, maybe you don't. Do whatever feels right!
