Las Vegas by night

Las Vegas is for many people the city of casinos, gambling, alcohol and even drugs … except that this is not at all what it is!

The city has changed profoundly over the last few years and for the sake of your enjoyment, hotels now offer some of the craziest attractions. After reading my post about things to do in Los Angeles, let’s see what to do in the city where I live, Las Vegas !

Swim with sharks!

No, it’s not a joke! You will be able to swim among sharks in a special kind of swimming pool. It is located downtown in Old Las Vegas, at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas Hotel to be more precise. The pool is normally free to access, and no need to have a room at the hotel to enjoy it.

Address: 129 Fremont Street Experience, Las Vegas, NV 89101

Fly over Old Las Vegas

Also at Downtown, enjoy the “SlotZilla Zip Line” attraction and for a few seconds fly over Fremont Street either sitting or fully laying down.

Address: 425 Fremont St # 160, Las Vegas, NV 89101

Have a drink at an ice bar at 10 degrees

The Ice Bar is a chain of bars found in various cities in the world: Prague, New York, and of course there are three in Las Vegas! Discover the Minus 5 Experience!

Take a roller coaster ride through and around a hotel

Located right in the New York-New York Hotel & Casino, the attraction starts inside and ends by going around the building. No, this is not a joke!

Marvel at the biggest gold nugget in the world

Also at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas hotel, a huge gold nugget is displayed in the lobby for the enjoyment of precious stone admirers. Of course, it sits behind toughened glass …

Have a drink with a splendid view of the Strip

It’s not worth going to the Stratosphere Hotel and paying $20 to get to the top to enjoy the beauty of the strip, especially at night when everything lights up.

Located on the top floor of the Delano Hotel, the Skyfall Lounge offers a magnificent view of the Strip. Entry is free and the terrace is accessed through the bar. There is a dress code required.

Address: 3940 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119

Drink wine and paint a canvas at the same time

Do you like wine? Me too! How about spending an evening at a painting class while drinking wine? The concept is a bit different but nonetheless fun!

Address: 6587 S Las Vegas Blvd Ste. 175, Las Vegas, NV 89119

Get a cocktail served by a robot! Yes Yes !

Here there are no bartenders! Farewell to the 15% gratuity and hello to robotic service. You order your cocktail on a tablet, you pay, and there in front of you at the bar, a robotic arm will fix your cocktail before your eyes. Once your cocktail is ready, your name will be displayed on the main screen of the bar.

All you have to do is enjoy your drink! Who said we get bored in Vegas? Surely not me!
