Catch a pool party or be immersed in a new dining scene
By Melissa Gill
Memorial Day honors all veterans for their service in the military and we are fortunate to celebrate this day because of them. Let’s live life to the fullest as we appreciate this extended weekend. While celebrating this Memorial Day in the fabulous city of Las Vegas, here are four spots to check out this weekend.
Immersive Dining at X Pot
Inside the Venetian, X Pot serves unique Asian dishes in a dining area immersed in HD 360 projections, intriguing soundscapes and dazzling light shows. This restaurant tantalizes all five senses and serves an experience along with sophisticated fare such as Wagyu Tartare, Langoustine caviar and sharing pots of your choice with options like Creamy Lobster Pot, Matsutaki Mushroom Pot, Collagen Golden Chicken Pot and more. Visit here to make your reservation.
Daylight Beach Pool Party
On Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, DJ Envy will be spinning bops for Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort. Dive into their 4,400 square-foot pool to beat the heat. Nibble on their made-to-order hot wings while quenching your thirst with a tropical-inspired cocktail. The party starts at 11:00 a.m. Reserve your spot on their website.
If you’re searching for a lit dance floor this weekend, Drai’s Nightclub at The Cromwell will be featuring DJ Franzen bumpin’ jams on Memorial Day. Feel the music on their 70,000 square-foot rooftop, eight pools, four bars and 7,00o square feet of digital LED screens. Plan your bottle service and book your seat here.
“Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” at AREA15
There’s no place in Las Vegas like the immersive art fixture near the Strip, AREA15. If going to the club isn’t your style, then “Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” may be just the place for you. This interactive art installation invites guests to get a closer, in-depth view at the genius work of Van Gogh. Plus, they will be serving some exclusive cocktail specials and French wines right on time for Memorial Day Weekend.
Must-have libations include “The Starry Night,” a mixture of St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, Copper and King Absinthe with lime and lemon juice topped with pineapple and star anise. If you are a wine lover, go for a glass of French Blue Sauvignon Blanc or Mouton Cadet Bordeaux Reserve. Step inside the paintings of Van Gogh and enjoy a tasty mixed drink before heading into another work week.
