RIO WINE CELLAR AND TASTING ROOM

If you’ve been to Vegas a lot you’ve probably enjoyed a glass of wine in many fine restaurants and bars around town. But have you been to Rio’s Wine Cellar and Tasting Room? This hidden gem is located at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. You have to descend a staircase to get down to it – kind of like going into an actual cellar.

Rio’s Wine Cellar and Tasting Room is home to one of the most impressive public wine collections in the United States with around 10,000 bottles, valued at more than $10 million. They even have a bottle of 1800 Madeira from Thomas Jefferson’s cellar. You can’t drink that, but the good news is they also have many wines that you will want to drink. There are more than 100 wines by the glass. Don’t know wine? A professional wine steward at the bar will help you. Pair your wines with a menu of delectable bites like bread and cheese.

The Wine Cellar specializes in private wine tasting seminars, wine tasting parties and dinners.

Brunch is definitely a thing in Vegas and if you’ve been here many times you’ve probably indulged in bottomless mimosas and breakfast goodies. If you want to take your brunch game up a notch the next time you’re here, try the Sterling Brunch at Bally’s Las Vegas.

For more than 30 years, the renowned Sterling Brunch at Bally’s has been a go-to for people who want to splurge. You’ll get endless pours of Perrier-Jouët Champagne and unlimited American sturgeon caviar. The buffet also offers Alaskan king crab legs, lamb, lobster tails, prime rib, sushi, fresh-shucked oysters, truffle mashed potatoes and so much more. You can also order items off the menu including eggs Benedict and Belgian waffles.

XBU – X Burlesque University

You may have seen racy adult shows in Vegas before but we bet you’ve never learned how to become one of the bombshell dancers in the shows. The ladies from “X Burlesque” at Flamingo Las Vegas will teach you everything from how to apply false lashes to skillfully strutting in high heels in X Burlesque University. You’ll learn the art of being seductive, as well as other tips for the art of burlesque — all on the same stage where the pros perform.

After you’ve achieved your showgirl look and perfected your striptease, you’ll get a photo on stage, a tube of lipstick, a set of eyelashes and an official XBU diploma upon completion of the class.

Arctic Ice Room at Qua Baths & Spa

A day at the spa is something many Vegas pros have indulged in, but if you’re looking for something more than a pedicure or a Swedish massage on your next trip, visit the Arctic Ice Room at Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace. It’s the only one in the world, and it’s about the only place in Vegas you’ll ever see it snow.

You’ll sit on a heated bench as you breathe in mint-infused, 55-degree air. Snowflakes (okay, they’re not real snowflakes, they’re crystals made of soap and water) gently float down from a faux starry sky. Spa experts say the chilly treatment can help tighten pores and seal in products on the skin.

Restaurant Guy Savoy’s Caviar Room

Frequent Vegas visitors have eaten at many gourmet rooms and celebrity chef restaurants, but if you’re looking for a special dining experience you’ve never had before, we suggest the Caviar Room at Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace.

Located in the restaurant’s elegant lounge, the Caviar Room offers an exclusive menu of caviar dishes as well as some of the Michelin-starred chef’s signature favorites.

Dishes on the Caviar Room menu include Colors of Caviar, salmon mi cuit, octopus pot au feu with Golden Osetra Caviar and Kushi oysters on the half shell. You’ll also find Golden Osetra or Siberian Baerii Caviar by the ounce, accompanied by traditional condiments. Pair your caviar with a glass of Krug Champagne or a Belvedere martini.
