Sunday, April 8: There's no better way to end a weekend of partying in Vegas than a nice brunch, and this Easter Sunday, our restaurants are pulling out the stops with elegant meals and unbeatable specials.

  • Top of the World at Stratosphere is offering a four-course brunch with a complimentary mimosa or glass of champagne for $49 per person.
  • Enjoy an amazing spread of springtime classics at Simon at Palms Place during an exclusive Easter brunch buffet selected by celebrity chef Kerry Simon. The spiral ham, leg of lamb and bread pudding are musts.
  • If you're a little slower than others to get in gear on Sunday morning, Planet Hollywood's Strip House is featuring Easter specials later in the day, including warm goat cheese salad, roast saddle of lamb and sour cream bundt cake.
  • As a finale, be sure to check out L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon at MGM Grand for the debut of their one-of-a-kind chocolate display celebrating the spring season. More than 110 pounds of milk, dark and white chocolate, 2,000 tablespoons of sugar and 50 containers of colored cocoa butter were used to create the showcase of chocolate bunnies, hens and eggs; sugar picnic baskets, bows, flowers, shells and fish; plus, a variety of fondant bird cages filled with sweet surprises.

Club the night away under the stars

 

Voodoo NightclubEnjoy the view from the two-story outdoor rooftop deck at VooDoo Lounge at the Rio (51 stories above the action of the Strip), or experience one of three open-air clubs at Wynn/Encore Las Vegas;  Surrender at Encore offers plush banquettes and go-go dancers, while XS turns up the heat poolside!  Whether you're hanging out on the North or South Patio, or dancing on the outdoor dance floor, at Tryst you'll be just feet from your own private waterfall - exclusively for nightclub patrons!

Join A-list celebs at the Palms' Ghostbar and have a drink on the outdoor sky deck offering a 360-degree view of the city and a see-thru floor (not for the faint of heart)!  Palms' Moon Nightclub has color-changing glass tiles and eye-catching imagery and a retractable roof designed specifically for our clear summer nights! Step outside TAO Nightclub at The Venetian's 40-foot-long, European-style terrace for outstanding views of the Strip.

Downtown's Gold Diggers Nightclub at the Golden Nugget has an outdoor terrace perched high above the Fremont Street Experience and its million lights of Viva Vision - the most spectacular light show in the world!  And under the Eiffel Tower and the lights of Paris, check out the exclusive Butterfly hidden high above Chateau Nightclub

If someone tells you to meet them at the Foundation Room - don't think twice!  Join them high atop Mandalay Bay for a private club experience with an unprecedented view of the city!  With so many options, it's hard to choose just one.  Just make sure to include celebrity-owned PURE Nightclub at Caesars Palace.  With an outdoor patio overlooking the center of the city, and celebrity hosted birthdays almost nightly, it's a hot spot that always draws the A crowd!

See you on the dance floor - in Vegas!
