It’s Getting Hot in Vegas
The immersive HELL’S KITCHEN Restaurant has opened its doors at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. Guests of the dining venue will feel transported to the studio set of the TV show, with the bustling kitchen being the centerpiece of the eatery, and with chefs donning the exact uniforms from the show—red and blue jackets with coordinating bandanas. The show’s signature fiery pitchfork marks the entryway to the restaurant, and a life-size video screen of chef Ramsey greets guests upon arrival. There are floor-to-ceiling windows facing the Strip and the hotel’s iconic fountains, and the menu features recipes from the TV show (think lobster risotto). We’ve heard that the cocktails are not-to-be-missed, including the gin-based “notes from Gordon,” garnished with a scroll printed with a surprise note from the celebrity chef himself.

Eats by the Pool
Pool season in Vegas is here, and with it comes cool experiences at The Cosmopolitan’s Pool District. There are Dive in Movies—transforming the resort’s 65-ft. digital marquee into a colossal movie screen—which guests can enjoy with a speciality cocktail in hand and movie snacks; and the Overlook Grill, serving American staples along with uniquely curated brunch selections including a detox green bowl salad and an avocado toast benedict, as well as a “done adulting” margarita and “bikini bod” cocktail. The fun takes place at the resort’s Boulevard Pool, which overlooks the Strip and offers fab views over the Vegas skyline.
