With its reputation for revelry, Las Vegas has long been a favorite destination for bachelorette getaways.
What’s not to love about a weekend out of town with some of your favorites in tow, with any number of leisure pursuits at your beck and call?
From luxe retreats to around-the-clock eats, Las Vegas delivers any time of day or night — and it’s constantly upping the ante with new offerings.
Thinking about having your bachelorette in this famously fabulous destination? Here’s what you need to know right now:
1. The Cosmo is (Still) a Big Deal
Landing on Las Vegas Weekly’s “Best of Vegas” list yet again for 2016, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is not resting on its laurels as being one of the hottest properties on The Strip.
Instead, the resort is adding to its cache, having recently opened a 10,000-square-foot outpost of the New York City speakeasy-style lounge and eatery, Beauty & Essex, as well as the first outpost of Los Angeles cult fave Eggslut, which will be open overnight on select nights to feed the late-night crowd.
The Juice Standard, a local micro-chain for cold-pressed juices, offers an additional menu of “cold-pressed cocktails” exclusively at The Cosmo location; a Momofuku project is also slated to open later this year.
2. Vegas Has a Huge New Stage
In addition to the multitude of entertainment offerings up and down The Strip, the city this spring inaugurated the T-Mobile Arena, a state-of-the-art venue that will host both pro sports games and blockbuster concert tours, including Gwen Stefani, Drake, Kanye West, and the Rolling Stones.
Cross-check the schedule before you set your bachelorette dates — a concert here could be a highlight of your weekend.
