Turning 21 - not only is it the final rite of passage into adulthood, it's really the last birthday anyone actually looks forward to. Only Las Vegas provides the pomp and circumstance befitting such an occasion.
First, let's talk home base. When you decide to take the party back to your room, you need to make sure the room is worthy of your party. The Hard Rock Hotel can help. It offers seven awesomely themed super suites, each of which includes 70-inch flat screens, hot tubs, seven-spout uber showers, butler service, props and costumes that vary by theme, and a digital system capable of projecting any image onto your wall. The legendary Caesars Palace offers spectacular suites with dramatic views of the Strip. From a nonstop party till dawn, or a black-tie affair in your room, fantasies become reality in the iconic two-level Forum Tower Emperors Suite at Caesars Palace.
Before the big night, set the tone of the day with a round of cocktails courtesy of the master mixologists at The Chandelier Bar at The Cosmopolitan. Then, it's time for the guys and girls to do their own thing. For the ladies, it's mani-pedi nirvana, facials, hydrotherapy and all the pampering you can handle at The Spa inside Wynn Las Vegas. For the guys, catch exciting sports action and signature eats at Lagasse's Stadium at The Palazzo, or dig in to wild flavors and atmosphere at Tacos & Tequila at Luxor. Classic Bobby Flay dishes are always in season at the inviting MESA Grill at Caesars Palace.
You only turn 21 once and you definitely want to go big. Live large at The Bank Nightclub at Bellagio or 1 OAK at The Mirage; check out all five levels of insane energy at Hakkasan inside MGM Grand, or blow the roof off - wait, there is none - at Voodoo atop the Rio. For a three-clubs-in-one experience, check out PURE inside Caesars Palace, which includes the Terrace, the largest outdoor, year-round nightlife venue in Las Vegas. Marquee at The Cosmopolitan also has three levels of heart-pounding music. The main level showcases a four-story LED DJ booth, projection stage and two dance floors - all of which is overlooked by the Library, with its billiards table, fireplace and vintage Las Vegas books. And then there's the Boom Box room with giant glass walls that look right onto the Strip.
