A Guide to the Best Vegas Hotels for Single Guys
We’ll start with the wildest of the bunch…
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino…for pure hedonism.
With a reputation for extreme partying the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is the home of hedonism in Vegas.
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday the resort plays host to one of the raunchiest pool parties on Earth; Rehab. The party starts at 11am and runs through until dusk allowing guests to fill their daylight hours with raucous and saucy action. The atmosphere is always charged with erotic promise and attracts the finest women in teasing swimwear.
It has the vibe of a slightly more grown up ‘spring break’ but with the same promise of hook ups.
The hotel also has some great entertainment venues on site including the 4000-seat venue, Joint. Offering the capacity to host some major acts and big shows the Joint is the chosen venue of the 2017 AVN Awards. The Oscars for the porn industry are held in Vegas every year and will be hosted by the Hard Rock in January 2017.
As well as the plentiful bars, great restaurants and leisure activities the Hard Rock is a luxury hotel with a great casino. There is plenty to do and the place attracts a lot of singles making a great location if you are visiting the city alone.
Harrah’s…for meeting women
Harrah’s is a great hotel on the strip but the jewel in its crown is undoubtedly the Carnival Court. An outdoor nightlife experience offering live music, entertaining bar tenders and, when weather permits, blackjack tables.
It’s a regular hotspot for meeting single women as the open-air atmosphere seems to appeal to those ladies who might feel a little nervous about being hemmed in by the claustrophobic gaming floors.
When the weather is good, the Carnival Court is a rolling opportunity to sit and watch the best of Vegas play out before your very eyes.
The hotel itself is a good budget option for visitors looking to save their money for the tables.
They do have good food, a pleasant enough gaming floor as well as several bars and a spa with pool. The entertainment is hit and miss and you are more likely to see an Elvis tribute act than anything cutting edge. However they do always host an adult themed act which is usually topless.
The venue is owned and operated by the same management as Caesars Palace and is located directly on the Las Vegas monorail line.
The Cosmopolitan Hotel…for opulent luxury.
With floor to ceiling walls offering one of the best views across the iconic lights of the Strip, the Cosmopolitan is a modern and luxurious hotel that does things differently.
Whilst most casinos do their best to prevent gamblers from seeing the outside world the Cosmopolitan maximises the impact of the experience of being in Vegas.
Though the place appeals to wealthy visitors the costs aren’t prohibitive for average guests to be able to afford a slice of the action. Despite the grown-up decadence, The Cosmopolitan is a trendy and popular nightspot for entertainment and hosts excellent entertainment during the day and night.
The resort is also home to the Rose.Rabbit.Lie supper club; an exquisite dining experience made surprising with the chefs ability to combine the most unlikely of ingredients in unusual ways; their signature dish of caviar tacos is refined twist on a classic.
The Marquee day club offers guests and visitors a chance to enjoy the daylight hours in a luxury poolside setting. The demographic is young and is strictly adults only. The adjoining marquee nightclub is just as vibrant and is a popular hotspot for international DJ’s. The location is perfectly situated above the buzz of the Strip and the rooftop patio takes full advantage of this.
Lastly, the Cosmopolitan attracts a young and attractive evening crowd to its swanky bars. The Bond is an LED lit arty bar that plays upbeat house music with the DJ keeping the atmosphere hyped until the early hours. By contrast, the more sophisticated Chandelier lounge is a cocktail lovers heaven and you are guaranteed to meet some hot older ladies in here.
MGM Grand… for the gambling and sports.
Known for being the gamblers Mecca, the MGM Grand is a landmark hotel and contains a staggering 170,000 square feet of gaming space. Anyone who comes to Las Vegas for the experience of gambling will want to spend plenty of time exploring this huge den.
From the table games such as blackjack and craps, War and roulette to the thousands of video poker and slot machines the MGM has it all.
Running 10am to 8pm, all sports and races are televised in the 5,300 square foot sports book which has 47 plasma TVs screening all the action. Four skyboxes offer a VIP experience if you end up with a group of other single guys and the drinks are complimentary throughout.
When it opened in 1993, the MGM Grand was the largest hotel in the world but is currently the third largest behind the First World Hotel (Malaysia) and The Venetian/Palazzo (Las Vegas).
The complex is extensive and runs to five outdoor swimming pools as well as landscaping of rivers, waterfalls and pools. Home to a 380,000 square foot convention centre, numerous nightclubs, shops and restaurants the MGM Grand covers an area of 6.6 acres.
As well as the gaming and sports, guests can enjoy the party atmosphere at the adults only West Republic pool which hosts swimsuit competitions, live music and a raucous vibe. When night descends the party easily transitions to the ultimate nightclub; Hakkasan.
The Palms Casino Resort…for the best party atmosphere.
In a similar vein to the Hard Rock, The Palms Casino Resort is also known as a party hotspot. With two nightclubs (Rain and Moon) the fantasy Palms Tower is home to some of the most expensive suites in the world.
Rain is an industrial style nightclub with pyrotechnics, live DJs and attracts an audience with an insatiable appetite for fun with the energy to match. With a retractable roof, Moon is also a hedonistic dream of all-night party atmosphere when it opens for special events.
The resort is also home to The Playboy Midsummer Nights Event held during August, a recording studio and some excellent pool parties.
Artisan Hotel…for adults only.
A mid-range hotel that doesn’t have a casino, the 64-room, Artisan Hotel is strictly for over 21s. Though by Vegas standards the complex can appear low-rent, there is an exciting and erotic edge which appals to those looking for something a little different.
Think of the Artisan as separating the staying and the playing elements of the city. The outdoor pools are topless and feature live entertainment. The nightclub is lively and gets into full swing late into the night with plenty of energy way past dawn.
A mile away from the Strip, the Artisan appeals to those visitors who want to retreat away from the main tourist drag without heading way into a desert retreat that has no party scene.
Caesars Palace…for the entertainment
No recommendation of Vegas hotels would be complete without a mention of the world-famous Caesars Palace. The complex is a landmark on the Strip and offers a great experience of gaming, luxury accommodation as well as fine-dining but is undisputedly the home of some of the best entertainment to be had in Vegas.
The 75,000 square foot nightclub, Omnia, has some of the best DJs in town playing the hottest music to perennially big crowds. The adjoining terrace has great views across the strip.
There is an adult only pool on site which is less rowdy than either of those at the Palms or Hard Rock but nevertheless a popular place for singles.
Lastly, Caesars has a great schedule of THE best shows in Las Vegas. For something sensuous and arousing, check out Absinthe. A blend of saucy comedy, daring feats and sumptuous exotic burlesque, the show has been described as ‘…the most inventive and daring show to open on the strip in years’.
