Opium at The Cosmopolitan…It’s not what it sounds like. On March 13, the hotel will debut a new experience from Spiegelworld (the creators of Absinthe), called Opium. The website promises comedy, live funk music, and “space travel”—basically, it’s about as Vegas as it gets. You can buy your tickets here.
Have Dinner at China TangThe Hong Kong-based restaurant’s first U.S. installation officially opened its doors on February 16, 2018, during Lunar New Year. Housed in the MGM Grand, Eaterhas already praised China Tang for its “authentic ingredients” and “high standard of service.” Plus, the decor comes with a 1930s Shanghai vibe, and the restaurant specially imported a duck roasting oven straight from China. Sold.
Bellagio Gallery of Fine ArtArt and history buffs should head to the Bellagio during their trip. The on-site gallery’s latest exhibition features over 50 pieces of Samurai armor, some of which date back a few centuries. The show runs until April 29, 2018, and you can buy tickets here. Afterwards, grab a drink at Hyde, which has front-row seats to the Bellagio fountains.
Level UpOn March 22, Vegas will debut its first E-Sports Arena at MGM Resorts International’s Luxor Hotel and Casino. The 30,000 square foot space comes complete with a 50-foot video wall, competition stage, gaming stations, and a production studio—think of it as the ultimate arcade. If you get hungry, the complex has next-level food and drinks, thanks to a partnership with Chef José Andrés‘s ThinkFoodGroup. The menu will be inspired by gaming: Considering the inventive cuisine at Andrés’s other Vegas installments (Bazaar Meat, é by José Andrés, China Poblano, Jaleo), it’ll probably be delicious.
Concerts and ComedyIf all else fails, there are dozens, if not hundreds, of shows happening in Vegas each month. The March lineup includes Elton John and Jerry Seinfeld—you can check out a more comprehensive list of shows here.
