In an era of #girlpower and female empowerment, being a single woman ain’t too shabby anymore. Who needs a boring, sappy trip to Paris when you can gather up your girlfriends and head to Sin City? Here are some tips and tricks to make your single girl’s weekend the best yet.
Can I get a “let’s go ladies!?”
Luxury Stays: Finding the Best Girl’s Weekend Hotel & Resort
Las Vegas is the best place to settle down for the weekend in style. Filled with the trendiest and most luxurious hotels in the nation, Vegas resorts can certainly make you feel like the independent queen you are.
While Vegas Suites come with a hefty price tag, they’re worth every penny. With some rooms equipped with spiral staircases, full kitchen and hot tubs, these resorts never fail to make you feel like anything less than royalty. The strip is home to some of the nicest and most glamorous hotels in the nation: Aria, Caesars Palace, The Wynn, The Bellagio, Paris, and The Venetian. Each resort is decorated in themed decor that sets the tone for your stay, whether that be ancient Rome or sleek and modern.
A single woman’s Resort recommendation:
The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas is a crowd favorite amongst young single women. In a resort dripping in diamonds, high-end restaurants, and trendy decor, The Cosmo is a sure-fire bet for the weekend of your dreams. Head to Clique Bar & Lounge for a quick cocktail and a bite to eat, or Vesper Bar for a vintage, sophisticated vibe.
The rooms at the Cosmo are even better than the great food and drink they boast. The Bungalow Suite is one of the most sought out rooms in all of Las Vegas. This private suite contains three gorgeous floors totaling to 1,695 sq. Ft., a jacuzzi plunge pool, 24/7 butler service, a private terrace and patio, and a poolside view, this suite is literally the lap of luxury.
If you’re looking for something more low-key without sacrificing that glamorous feel, the Two Bedroom City Suite is a great choice for a girls trip. With two master bedrooms, two on-suites, and a shared living and powder room, this Cosmopolitan suite can make you feel like a million bucks without spending it.
Delicious Bites: Finding the Best Restaurants and Food in Las Vegas
Now that you and your girlfriends have a place to stay, the next necessity is arguably the best: dining. Vegas is not only home to amazing resorts but is a hotspot for gourmet and delicious restaurants. Containing culinary legends like Gordon Ramsey and Jose Andres, and popular restaurants like Nobu and Martorano’s, food is abundant and delectable in Sin City.
A single woman’s recommendation for brunch:
The Sterling Brunch at Bally’s Hotel and Casino is one of the most legendary meals in the nation. For $90 each, you and your girlfriends are treated to an extensive buffet overflowing with caviar, endless lobster, delicious mimosas, and bottomless champagne. While the price tag may make you gasp for air, I assure you that this is more than just a buffet, but rather an experience worth every cent.
A single woman’s recommendation for a light snack:
RA Sushi Bar Restaurant is an excellent choice for a quick and light bite to eat. We like them so much that they made our list of best late-night happy hour spots!
Ra serves a variety of specialty rolls, sashimi, nigiri, cooked sushi, and classic Maki. And since you’re in Las Vegas, we recommend the “Las Vegas Roll.”
However, if sushi isn’t exactly your cup of tea, RA’s menu also contains ramen, noodles, steak, salad, and soup. Right in the heart of Fashion Show Mall, RA is the perfect place for a girlfriend lunch and a quick shopping trip.
A single woman’s recommendation for dinner:
For dinner time, skip the buffet and head to Hell’s Kitchen for some of the best food you’ll eat in your lifetime, and even perhaps your next. Enjoy specialty cocktails, a lavish atmosphere, an extensive and delicious menu, and the true Gordon Ramsey experience. With past winners from the show in which Hell’s Kitchen is named after, the restaurant boasts a gourmet experience without even trying the food. Voted one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas, Hell’s Kitchen is the perfect option for a glamorous GNO.
Hell’s Kitchen’s menu contains some of Gordon Ramsey’s signature dishes such as Beef Wellington, lobster risotto, and filet mignon. The restaurant also serves other crowd favorite dishes like salmon, chicken scallopini, and rack of lamb. Hell’s Kitchen is also accommodating to both vegans and vegetarians; just ask your server.
Drinks and Las Vegas Nightlife: Let the Party Begin!
And now, for the section, we’ve all been waiting for: nightlife. It’s common sense that Vegas is regarded as having one of the best nightlife experiences in the world—why else would we all go there? With the Strip being home to world-class shows, sophisticated bars, and exclusive clubs, here are some recommendations for the best GNO of all time.
A single woman’s recommendation for drinks:
What says “luxury” more than drinking signature cocktails in a giant, Swarovski crystal chandelier? As noted before, The Cosmopolitan is no stranger to glamour, and this is evident in their crowning jewel (literally) of a bar: The Chandelier.
During the day, The Chandelier looks like any other glamorous lighting fixture in Las Vegas. However, when the sun sets, it expands from the ceiling into a three-level cocktail bar surrounded in diamonds. Here, you and your girlfriends can drink in luxury on any of the three floors of the lounge.
Girl’s Night Out Drink of Choice: We’re All Mad Here
An ode to Alice in Wonderland, this gin-based concoction starts blue but changes colors once blended, and is accompanied with an edible tag that makes your tongue tingle.
A single woman’s recommendation for shows:
Zumanity, a Cirque du Soleil show at the New York, New York Hotel & Casino, is a great choice for your night out. Described as the “sensual side of Cirque du Soleil,” Zumanity is an adult-themed show, executed with class and a touch of feminism. Featuring sex toys, contortion, acrobats, a male striptease (now you know why this is perfect for a girls night), and sex, sex, sex, and more sex, Zumanity is perfect for exploring your wild side.
A single woman’s recommendation for the best Las Vegas club:
The Encore Beach Club at Night is one of the hottest and highest rated clubs in all of Las Vegas. Located the Wynn, EBC at Night has not only beautiful decor and a great atmosphere but boasts celebrity DJs like The Chainsmokers, David Guetta, and Diplo on a daily basis.
This club has the ability to shift from a crazy pool party to a sophisticated, tropical club at night. Sip on Miami Vices and Pinà Coladas, and dance until the sun rises with your girlfriends.
It’s Vegas Time Ladies!
So, skip Paris and sappiness for an unforgettable weekend with your best girlfriends. Between luxury hotels, gourmet restaurants, specialty cocktails, spectacular shows, and amazing parties, Vegas is definitely your go-to destination for the ultimate girls weekend. Let’s go, ladies!
