Las Vegas SCENE
With its pool parties and legendary clubs, Vegas has long been the most popular choice, says Joanne Barken, CEO of thebach .com, a bachelorette-party planning site. And The Hangover movies clinched it. What’s hot is always changing, but Wynn continues its reign as the city’s digs of choice. Maybe it has something to do with Prince Harry: Nakedgate took place in his Encore Tower suite.
EATS & DRINKS Sip Mixopolitans 400 feet above the neon at Mix ultralounge at Mandalay Bay’s THEhotel (soon to be christened Delano Las Vegas). Or delve into vintage Vegas amid the Polynesian idols and rum-laced Zombie cocktails at Frankie’s Tiki Room. Foie gras parfait is a headliner at celeb-chef outfi t L’Atelier de Jo«l Robuchon.
GIRLS To see and be seen during Vegas’ pool season (May to October), choose your pool-party poison. For over-the-top, it’s swimup blackjack and barely-there-kinis at Rehab Sundays at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. For sophisticated, DayDream, the Pool Club at M Resort fl aunts handcrafted cocktails (try the M Fantasy with blueberry vodka), an infi nity pool and an ice-rail bar. GUYS After hitting the tables, conjure your inner Ricky Bobby with the Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s Exotics Racing experience, where you can race sports cars like Ferraris and Porsches.
