The Best Design Lovers Guide To The Crazy City of Las Vegas ⇒ Las Vegas, also known as Sin City, is famous for the crazy environment and non-stop parties. But beyond the various forms of entertainment, Las Vegas is a city brimming with impressive design and fine art. With a significant transformation over the last few years that caters to the well-heeled crowd, there’s much more to see in Vegas than ever before. Best Design Guides brings you the best design lovers guide to explore this side of Las Vegas!
Since the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas opened in 2010, it has been among the top spots to see and be seen. Guests are welcomed with 15-foot digital art columns in the lobby and a spectacular tri-level bar on the opposite end of the property. Draped in curtains of shimmering beads with bars encircled with Swarovski crystals, the Chandelier is the swankiest lounge in town. Curated by Tihany Design, Richmond International, and Daun Curry Design Studio, each accommodation is unique and boasts opulent details like hand-cut marble and 24-karat-gold accents.
Designed by Rockwell Group, every little detail inside Omnia was carefully considered. The crown jewel is the main room’s 22,000-pound kinetic chandelier. Comprised of eight concentric rings adorned with thousands of LED strips and lights that are individually programmable, it puts on one of the most alluring light shows you’ve ever seen.
With a $620 million renovation well underway, Palms Casino Resort is a phoenix rising from the ashes. The most remarkable component of this much-needed facelift is the eclectic mix of art. Its lobby bar has made a splash with a shark sculpture by Damien Hirst, but make sure to take a stroll around the property for works by Takashi Murakami, Kaws, and many more acclaimed artists.
Last year David Chang made his first foray into Vegas with Momofuku, bringing his beloved pork belly buns, fried chicken, and bo ssäm with him. In addition to his spectacular eats, you’ll find a large mural by street artist David Choe in the dining room.
Beyond being an architectural marvel, the Frank Gehry–designed Keep Memory Alive Event Center also has a charitable component: Proceeds generated from bookings go toward research, treatment, and studies at the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
Designed by Ken Fulk, the interiors at Carbone are just as fantastic as the Italian-American fare. Think Fortuny fabrics, blue subway tiles, red velvet, and dazzling chandeliers. Savour chunks of Parmigiano-Reggiano served straight from the block and don’t miss out on the spicy rigatoni vodka and veal parmesan.
The first in Las Vegas to integrate a large, permanent fine-art collection into a public space, Aria Resort & Casino changed the game in 2009 with works by acclaimed artists like Jenny Holzer, Tatsuo Miyajima, and Tony Cragg. Ask the concierge for a map and go on a self-guided tour.
Designed by Studio Libeskind, the Shops at Crystals‘ angular construction is a stunner from the Strip. The LEED Gold–certified building also houses two James Turrell installations.
The Venetian and adjoining Palazzo resorts have been revamping their beverage program. Last year’s introduction of the Dorsey brought creative drinks that are concocted at a bar surrounded by digital artwork, and last month saw the arrival of Electra Cocktail Club. The real beauty, though, is Rosina, a seductive Art Deco venue focusing on classic and champagne cocktails.
Until Dubai debuts their observation wheel, Las Vegas’s High Roller takes the prize for the world’s tallest. At 550 feet, one revolution takes about half an hour and boasts 360-degree views of the valley.
