Las Vegas hotels are designed with everything your heart desires in one convenient location. Where else can you sip craft cocktails, shop at your favorite designer stores, dine at the restaurants of celebrity chefs and see shows by world renowned headliners all under one roof? Here’s your itinerary for spending 24 hours in Vegas at Caesars Palace.
3 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Check in begins at 4 p.m. so plan to arrive at the hotel in the 3 o’clock hour to grab a quick selfie with the statue of Caesar Augustus at the entrance of the casino for good luck before officially checking in. Be sure to download the Play by TR app so you can get all the insider details on the property and its offerings. Head to one of the Express Check-in Kiosks by the front desk if you want to skip the traditional line. Drop your bags with the bellhop for delivery to your room and start your action-packed adventure.
4 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Kick things off with a little refresh of your look at COLOR Salon by Michael Boychuck. Get your hair and makeup done by the color experts at this salon that’s a favorite of celebs like LeAnn Rimes and Paris Hilton. The salon specializes in color (duh), lash extensions and hair extensions, as well as air-brushed makeup.
5 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Grab a cocktail at Alto Bar. Get into the spirit of Caesars Palace with the Crown of the Gods cocktail featuring Crown Royal Canadian whisky, lime syrup, blood orange liqueur and aromatic bitters. Another great option is Cleo’s Cosmo, a fresh twist on the classic cocktail featuring Belvedere Mango Passion vodka, Cointreau liqueur, fresh-squeezed lime and cranberry juice.
6 P.M. – 7:30 P.M.
It’s dinner time but where should you go? The place to see and be seen of course: MR CHOW. This trendy import from LA is the perfect spot to dine before you head to see a show. The scallion pancake appetizer is to die for and remember vacation carbs don’t count. Be sure to make use of MR CHOW’s signature champagne trolley featuring your favorite bubbles. Grab a group shot on the patio overlooking the gorgeous Garden of the Gods Pool before you head out.
7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
One of the best things about Las Vegas is the world class entertainment. Caesars Palace is home to the top headliners in town. Performers at The Colosseum include Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Rod Stewart, Elton John and Reba, Brooks & Dunn. Check the performance calendar to see when your favorite is performing. The beautiful Colosseum was Billboard Magazine’s Venue of the Decade for 2000-2009 and was recently selected as Billboard’s top performance venue under 5,000 seats for 2016.
10 p.m. – 11:30 p.m.
Stop by Fizz for a post-show drink and take a moment to process your fabulous Colosseum show experience. Fizz features a wide selection of rare and delicious champagnes, champagne cocktails and other specialty drinks. It’s one of the few places in town where you can order top-shelf champs by the glass including Dom Perignon, Krug and Perrier Jouet Brut Fleur de Champagne.
11:30 p.m. – 2 a.m.
It’s time to show off that hot outfit at the club. Hear music from the top DJs like Kaskade, Calvin Harris, Afrojack and Armin Van Buuren at OMNIA Nightclub. In addition to a stellar list of DJs, Omnia is visually stunning. From state-of-the-art lights and sound to a massive kinetic chandelier built from concentric circles that move, this club is the definition of high-tech glamour. Be sure to step outside on the patio for an impressive view of the Strip and more picture-perfect photo ops.
2 a.m. – 3 a.m.
Vegas nights are just getting going at 2 a.m. when most bars in other parts of the country are closing down. After the club, head over to Cleopatra’s Barge for more drinks and dancing. DJs spin until closing Friday and Saturday nights when the venue stays open late. Remember to touch Cleo’s bosom for good luck on the way in or out.
3 a.m. – 4 a.m.
Now that Cleopatra’s luck rubbed off on you, it’s time to hit the tables or slots for a little gambling action. Don’t be intimidated if you’re a bit of a novice; the dealers will guide you. If slots are more your speed, look for fun ones like Britney Spears and Dolly Parton.
4 a.m. – 7:30 a.m.
In Las Vegas, people don’t always waste time sleeping because there’s just too much to do. Keep the party rolling in your room or take a little snooze if you must. Hangover relief is just a phone call away as in-room dining offers morning spirits like mimosas and Bloody Marys delivered right to your room, along with a cocktail that’s literally called The Hangover Cure. Featuring a blend of Belvedere vodka, Campari and bitters topped with premium champagne, this cocktail should fix you right up and get you ready for the day.
7:30 a.m. – 9 a.m.
It’s time for everybody’s favorite meal of the day, brunch. Bacchanal Buffet opens nice and early with a tasty brunch spread that has something for everyone. “USA Today” ranked Bacchanal Buffet the number one buffet in Las Vegas and with a menu that includes delectable dishes like red velvet pancakes, lobster benedict and fried chicken and waffles, it’s easy to see why. Unlimited mimosas and all-you-care-to-drink add ons are available to help you ward off that hangover.
9 a.m. – 11 a.m.
After you’re full of delicious food, it’s time to take a nap by the pool. If you’re feeling bold you can actually take a dip but let’s face it, that chaise is looking pretty appealing after your big night. Don’t forget to apply some sunscreen. You don’t want to look like that lobster you had at Bacchanal Buffet. The Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis offers six different pools to choose from plus the Venus Pool Club for those who want more of a party atmosphere.
11 a.m. – noon
Continue the relaxation with a trip to Qua Baths & Spa, located on the second floor of the Augustus Tower. The award-winning spa offers everything from massages and facials to aromatherapy and chakra balancing. Try the Deep Tissue Surrender massage to relieve muscles that are sore from dancing all night. If you’re looking less than fresh after staying up all night, the Hydratherapy Facial will restore your glow.
Noon – 1 p.m.
You’ve already hit a few of the lucky spots at Caesars Palace like the statue of Caesar Augustus and also Cleopatra but now it’s time to finish out the list. No trip to Caesars Palace is complete without a photo at the statue of David in the Appian Way Shops. Touch his toe for good luck. Next up is the statue of boxer Joe Louis located near the Caesars Palace Race and Sports Book. Touch gloves with The Brown Bomber to gain some more luck. When you head outside of the casino, you’ll find The Brahma Shrine, a replica of one of the most popular Buddhist Shrines in Thailand, believed to bring good fortune. Pay your respects and soak up some luck. While you’re outside, be sure to grab some pictures on the Strip in front of Caesars Palace.
1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
All that walking around is bound to make you hungry again so head to Stripside Café and Bar for lunch. Surprise, surprise, it’s located stripside just in front of Caesars Palace. The wide menu includes favorites like the huevos rancheros burrito, Stripside chicken Parmesan, Boulevard nachos and the Stripside cheesesteak. Be sure to save room for one of the signature milkshake mugs for dessert. We’re partial to the cookies and cream one.
2 p.m. – 3 p.m.
It’s almost time to head to the airport but you can still fit in some last-minute shopping. Test the limits of your suitcase’s zippers with the must-have items you find in the Appian Way Shops and The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. Splurge on some new Christian Louboutin shoes, a bag from Balenciaga or some jewels from Tiffany & Co.
