Ring in the New Year in the place that knows how to party -- Las Vegas!

You're ready to say goodbye to 2014, so how about doing it in a place that knows a little something about throwing a party?

Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga

New Year's Eve in Las Vegas is always a can't-miss experience, and this year is no exception. Start with the top entertainment you'll find anywhere on the planet, from Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga performing at The Cosmopolitan to Maroon 5 at Mandalay Bay to The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl.

Make sure you fuel up for the long night ahead. Kerry Simon's Carson Kitchen in downtown Las Vegas is celebrating the new year with a prix fixe menu from 5-10 p.m. The five-course meal includes an optional wine pairing. The restaurants at Wynn Las Vegas also have New Year's Eve specials throughout the day, including a dim sum brunch at Wing Lei and prix fixe five-course meals at The Country Club - A New American Steakhouse, Mizumi, Sinatra and more. Or head to Trevi inside the Forum Shops at Caesars and cap off your New Year's Eve meal with a festive champagne sorbetti. 

Starting at 5 p.m. at Mandalay Bay, you can "Paint the Town Gold” into a golden wonderland, complete with elaborate gold-themed accents, party favors, delicious culinary selections and more. It's complimentary for guests, and throughout the resort, themed models will enhance the masquerade-style atmosphere. 

When it's time for traditional New Year's revelry, count down to 2015 from 108 stories high at the Stratosphere's 108 Tower Party New Year's Eve Bash hosted by Pin Up headliner Claire Sinclair. 

New Year's Eve

You can also celebrate on the Las Vegas Strip with America's Party, capped by a spectacular fireworks show emanating from the rooftops of resorts up and down Las Vegas Boulevard. Or head downtown to the Fremont Street Experience for the Downtown Countdown New Year's Eve Tribute Palooza party under the Viva Vision canopy, where the party lasts well beyond the midnight toasts.

Virtually every nightclub in town has its own New Year's party planned, with champagne at midnight and the world's top musical artists and DJs keeping the party rocking all night long.

Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea performs live at Drai's Nightclub at The Cromwell, Bruno Mars and Jermaine Dupri host at Tryst inside Wynn Las Vegas, Drake takes the stage at Marquee at The Cosmopolitan and Miguel is live at Hyde inside Bellagio. Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg's "Snoopadelic Cabaret" is ushering in 2015 at TAO inside The Venetian.

Calvin Harris spins at Hakkasan inside MGM Grand, Steve Angello is ringing in the new year at LiFE, the new nightclub at SLS Las Vegas, Lil Jon performs at Surrender and Zedd is at the turntables at XS inside Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, and Pauly D is at the Hard Rock's Vanity

Ghostbar high atop the Palms, Lavo at Palazzo and Chateau at Paris Las Vegas also have special New Year's events planned. On the west side of town, you can enjoy live music and drink specials at Rocks Lounge inside Red Rock Resort.   

If you're just looking to chill, what better place than either Minus-5 Ice Bar location - there's one inside Mandalay Place and at the Monte Carlo. Get your New Year's revelry started early as both locations will offer champagne toasts on the hour beginning at 11 a.m. - to help welcome the New Year all around the globe. Nothing wrong with a little worldwide celebration, is there?

BLVD

The BLVD Cocktail Co. at The LINQ will feature live music, a midnight toast, and a special package including a ride on the High Roller after 12:30 a.m. with its unparalleled views of Las Vegas. You can also party on the patio at Cabo Wabo Cantina at Planet Hollywood's Miracle Mile Shops and enjoy a tantalizing view of the fireworks display on the Las Vegas Strip.

Whether it's just taking in the fireworks or dancing the night away, there's only one place to welcome 2015 - Las Vegas!  

Vegas Weekend: Life is Beautiful everywhere you look

Music stars from every genre converge on downtown Las Vegas this weekend for one of the year's most anticipated events. Make your way to Las Vegas and find out why Life Is Beautiful in the Entertainment Capital of the World.

The weekend-long festival will feature nearly 70 chart-topping acts such as Kanye West, Foo Fighters, Outkast and Arctic Monkeys performing on four stages in the heart of the newly revived Downtown Las Vegas, with several Culinary Villages offering food from dozens of culinary giants, including Giada De Laurentiis, Sean Conant, Hubert Keller, Shawn McClain and more.

Chinatown filled with flavorful fare

Few people know that Las Vegas is home to the first master planned Chinatown in America.

Chinatown

But along with the unique Tong Dynasty architecture and the the largest collection of Asian businesses in Las Vegas, one thing visitors and Las Vegans alike are very familiar with is the authentic restaurants in the area, which encompasses Spring Mountain Road from the Strip to Rainbow Boulevard. Here's a look at the variety of flavorful fare you'll find:

Chinese

Yunnan Garden has more than 150 menu options, fllled with authentic Chinese dishes, including the spicy Szechuan Style Cold Noodle dish, a great deal for $5.95. 

Cathay House Restaurant is a popular, open-late spot with tasty dim sum and other traditional Chinese dishes, and KJ Kitchen is known for its Peking Duck and outstanding table service for its guests.

Uni in Ponzu Sauce

Japanese

Ichiza features traditional Japanese tapas - about 300, in fact - with a creative flair. From grilled squid to chicken skewers, there's plenty to tantalize your taste buds. Shown above is Ichiza's delicious Uni in Ponzu Sauce. Below, its signature dessert - the honey toast. This delicious dish is a square loaf of bread, crispy on the outside but soft in the middle. It's topped with vanilla ice cream and honey.  

Honey Toast

If you like spicy miso ramen with thick wavy noodles, check out Monta Ramen. For an upscale setting, Raku may be right for you. You'll certainly enjoy the bacon wrapped asparagus and poached egg uni and salmon roe. For some omakase style sushi, head over to Kabuto.

Thai

Chada Thai & Wine has all of the curry delicacies you'd expect in an authentic Thai restaurant, with the perfect wine pairings. Chada also has a gluten-free menu. For amazing Thai lunch specials and classics such as Pad Thai and the Drunken Noodles, visit Krung Siam.

Vietnamese

Pho Kim Long is open 24/7, so no matter when you're hungry for authentic Vietnamese dishes, you'll find them there. Pho Kim Long is perfect for a group outing or an intimate meal with your special someone.

District One Kitchen & Bar includes dishes inspired by Hong Kong, Thailand and Japan, and is open late, and you can choose your fish and have it any way you like it at Raku, even sashami, and accompanied by a Japanese plum soy sauce and a green tea/seaweed/shiitake/sea salt combo.

For a memorable Bahn Mi, visit Dakao Sandwiches. It's a small shop with huge flavors.  

Korean 

Honey Pig Korean BBQ and Sura BBQ Buffet offer an all-you-can-eat experience that's perfect for anyone with an appetite for pork belly, short ribs of beef and other Korean BBQ favorites. 

Dae Jang Keum is another 24/7 restaurant in Chinatown featuring authentic Korean cuisine, with takeout and online ordering available as well. Their lunch and dinner boxes hit the spot every time.

After any of these fulfilling meals, you'll be ready to take part in another Chinatown favorite activity - karaoke! Zizzy and Bazic Bar & Restoyaky are popular spots with happy hour specials and fun environmentals to stretch out your vocal chords.  

Make a trip to Chinatown part of your next visit to Las Vegas and enjoy these Asian-inspired delicacies! 

Head downtown for that speakeasy feeling

Sure, prohibition hasn't been around for nearly a century, but it's still fun to feel like you're in an old-fashioned speakeasy, where what you know isn't nearly as important as who you know.

In Las Vegas, there are several watering holes that will give you that cool, speakeasy feeling. Start downtown in the Fremont East District at the The Laundry Room, the bar within a bar deep inside the Commonwealth at 6th and Fremont. 

You can only get it through a hidden door with a reservation, which you can only make by texting the "secret" number. When you do gain entry, there are a few rules to obey. No pics, for example, so don't plan on any secret selfies. And you can only stay for two hours, so be sure to try any of the variety of concoctions they offer only in the Laundry Room. Specifically, the Ciao Bella (below at left: Italian Amaretto, Amaro Espresso-Coffee Liqueur, Cold-Pressed Coffee, Cream, Aromatic Bitters) and Pennsylvania Pumpkin Pie (below, center: Rye Whiskey, Amaretto, Pumpkin Puree, Fresh Orange Juice, Egg Whites).

Commonwealth drinks

Once your time is up, stick around the cool outdoor patio and enjoy live music on selected nights and other creative beverages, like the Mule In Heat (above right: Premium Vodka, Passion Fruit, Jalapeño, Fresh Lime and Ginger). If you find yourself with a case of the drunchiesLa Comida and Le Thai are right next door to satisfy your appetite. 

Velveteen Rabbit

Another downtown locale with a retro feel is the Velveteen Rabbit on Main Street, where you'll find a casual and unpretentious atmosphere.

It's underground, baby, and only in Vegas. Tell 'em we sent ya.
