My Little Gold Book: Sin City

21 Jul

It dawned on me after recently visiting Las Vegas why LUXE City Guides (the ultimate guide for the sophisticated traveler… and a chic addition to any bookshelf) has not developed a Sin City edition; the city is in a perpetual state of evolution that it would likely need to be reprinted on a yearly basis.

I make the voyage to Las Vegas several times a year and continue to be impressed and amazed with the collection of fabulous eateries, shops, watering holes and late night hot spots that spring up.

So rather than compile a little black book I have chosen to compile a little gold book dedicated to chronicling the glamorous and glittering experiences of various locales. Here are a few new Sin City favorites:

Sip: Stop into Laguna Champagne Bar on the casino floor in the Palazzo and delight yourself with a Flower Eclipse. The combination of St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Fresh Lemon Juice and Moet & Chandon “Nectar” Champagne is truly divine!

[Possibly one of the sweetest hand-drawn menus I have ever come across]

[Even the plates are adorned with the same whimsical doodling from the menu!]

Relish: Dive into the famous Frrrozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity 3 located on the strip – this overindulgent dish is concocted with 20 different types of chocolate spun into a whimsy of rich, chocolatey delight. FYI – totally big enough to share and seriously tastes like hot cocoa!

[Instantly fell in love with the hat on the left]

[Vintage sparkly duds – so appropriate for Vegas]

[Yes, please]

Spend: Peruse the fab vintage-filled racks at Annie Creamcheese (what a darling name!?). One could easily spend hours in this place!
