Winter is here and Las Vegas is dressing up for the holidays. One of Sin City’s newest and certainly one of their biggest resorts is going all out for their first holiday season, and you won’t want to miss it. Resorts World Las Vegas is transforming into a holiday wonderland as Christmas and New Year’s approach. Here’s a look at what you can expect at Vegas’s hottest new hotel.
Strolling the District
The District at Resorts World Las Vegas is a shopping experience unlike any other. The 70,000-square-foot retail space feels futuristic and spacious while retaining a classy and intimate atmosphere. During the holidays, it’s become even more spectacular – if that’s possible. Holiday touches are throughout the space, with seasonal installations delighting at every turn.
The District is a charming destination and provides the perfect photo opportunity for families looking to grace the front of their holiday card or catch that perfect profile pic. The 50-foot LED globe suspended in the center of the District is re-imagined as a festive snow globe for the holidays. Guests to the District will enjoy fun animations that bring the snow globe to life throughout the day. The globe showcases charming displays of falling snow on a hillside cabin decorated with Christmas lights and surrounded by trees, a snowman and more.
If your shopping is done and you’d rather indulge your inner foodie, Resorts World has you covered there too. The mega-resort already offers some of the best dining in the city. From Wally’s and Fuhu to Brezza and more, there’s a flavor and a menu in the budget for every guest. Famous Food Street Eats’ market-like atmosphere turns festive as Saint Nick himself greets guests from noon to 4PM on December 11, 12, 18 and 19. Enjoy a photo op with the big man himself or head over to Sweet Eats for some delectable holiday treats such as chocolate Christmas ornaments, Santa macarons, gingerbread cookies and more.
The Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den is less Saint Nick and more Oh My. Famous Food’s discreet speakeasy is transforming for the holiday, with an elegant and upscale touch of the festive. Guests who know about this thoughtfully tucked-away bar can enjoy the following holiday cocktails:
- Hot White served hot with Baileys, peppermint liqueur, a white chocolate ball and garnished with a candy cane.
- Palm Springs Holiday with Captain Morgan rum, lime juice, pineapple juice, cinnamon syrup, egg whites and topped with nutmeg and an umbrella
