Sunshine, glamor, and endless variety–Las Vegas is the ultimate escape from your pandemic rut. If you’re heading there with friends for spring break, why not embrace the “revenge travel” spirit and plan a trip that makes up for all the fun you missed out on?
Catch a top club act
Two years of scaled-back festivities hasn’t dampened the Vegas spirit. On the contrary, Sin City’s party scene is gearing up for a ferocious comeback this spring. You’ll find legendary DJs like Li’l Jon, Kaskade and Steve Aioki gracing nightclubs along the Strip (check out event dates at Hakkasan and OMNIA) and pool parties like Wet Republic. Just make sure you buy tickets well in advance and pay attention to the venue’s dress code.
Pick a restaurant that loves groups
The Strip is brimming with interesting places to eat, but some really know how to craft amazing experiences for friends. ¡Viva! at Resorts World is a colorful and casual Mexican restaurant specializing in shareable plates that burst with flavor. Whether you and your friends prefer to rent the ornately decorated private dining room or relax on the patio with a flight of margaritas, you’ll have a blast enjoying this restaurant’s many Mexico-inspired art installations. There’s no shortage of great group photo spots here.
Or, for a quintessentially Vegas experience, try Best Friend, where retro cocktails, neon decor and Korean fusion come together in a boisterous party atmosphere. Share the lobster kung pao and hot pot from the large format menu, and wash it all down with a boozy slushie. Just make sure you pace yourself–the drinks here are known to be potent!
Throw a vitamin drip party
Hotels have long been in the wellness game, but several along the Strip are kicking it up a notch by incorporating a major health trend: the vitamin drip. Wynn Hotel has partnered with Nutridrip to offer a full “menu” of IV treatments in their drip lounge, where your gang can pick from formulas designed for everything from curing hangovers fast to improving skin tone.
Others, like The Linq Hotel + Experience, don’t even require you to get out of bed: just call their spa’s 24/7 hotline, and a board-certified nurse will come right up to your room to administer your treatment of choice.
