Just like women need a weekend getaway to Las Vegas, so do the men. Take a break from reality and get ready for a weekend of nothing but the best Las Vegas has to offer. All you need to do is book a flight (or plan a road trip), pack your bags, and follow this informative guide. We’ve got you covered on everything to eat, drink, and explore for the ultimate guys’ weekend in Las Vegas.
The best way to kick off your guys’ weekend in Las Vegas is with the ARIA Resort & Casino self-guided foodie tour, offered through Finger Licking Foodie Tours. On this exclusive two-hour tour, you’ll visit three highly-acclaimed restaurants within the resort, where you’ll get to try a total of 10 dishes. Some of the places you may dine at include CATCH, Bardot Brasserie, Jean Georges Steakhouse, or Carbone. The price is 0 per person with tax and gratuities included. You can also purchase an optional beverage package. Book this tour in advance as it tends to sell out quickly.
After dinner, head over to Montecristo Cigar Bar inside Caesars Palace. At the upscale space, you’ll find an extensive menu of rare whiskeys, wine, beer, and cigars, of course. Within Montecristo Cigar Bar, there’s plenty of seating options for your group to enjoy, such as The Library and the private 10-seat Vault Room.
Luckily, you don’t have to go far to your next destination. Omnia (also in Caesars Palace) is the perfect way to continue your guys’ weekend in Las Vegas. The nightlife destination features an intimate lounge and a chic outdoor terrace with beautiful Las Vegas Strip views. You have the option to reserve a VIP table or booth for up to six guests. A night out with your friends, drinks, VIP bottle service—what could be better? Or if you’re interested in another great open-air rooftop hotspot, we’ve got cover there too.
After drinking and partying for a few hours, consider a late-night meal at Peppermill Restaurant and Lounge. Travel to the North-end of the Las Vegas Strip to get to this iconic standalone restaurant. The Peppermill is known for its hearty dishes and huge portions, with everything from breakfast specialties and burgers to steaks and pasta.
Start the day with a nice stroll down the Las Vegas Strip before heading off to lunch at Beer Park. Located inside of Paris Las Vegas, the open-air restaurant offers menu items like the brisket grilled cheese sandwich, smoked prime rib cheesesteak, BBQ pork ribs, and the Beer Park cheeseburger. With a name like Beer Park, expect lots of beer. There are more than 100 selections of beer, including 36 different beers on tap. Besides the food and drink menu, Beer Park features high-definition TVs for sports viewing, games like Jenga, pool, and foosball, and spectacular views of the Las Vegas Strip.
After lunch, put your golfing game to the test with afternoon fun at Topgolf at MGM Grand. Topgolf’s climate-controlled hitting bays (across four levels) are priced per hour and can accommodate up to six people. Most people usually stay and play for a couple of hours. Topgolf is so massive that it’s worth exploring after you’re done golfing. Within the complex, you’ll find multiple bars, pools, VIP cabanas, private suites, a fitting studio, and a golf shop. You can easily spend at least three hours here. Afterward, retreat to your hotel room to relax before your evening plans begin.
For dinner, we recommend STK Steakhouse, located on the third floor of the Boulevard Tower at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. At this high-class steakhouse, you choose from small, medium, or large meat options to pair with various side dishes. There’s also a raw bar and entrees like market fish, braised beef short rib, and Maine lobster risotto. If you want to try a little bit of everything, try the chef’s tasting menu. STK Steakhouse offers a unique dining experience with a lively atmosphere and a DJ.
Retreat to the first floor of Boulevard Tower for the perfect after-dinner spot: The Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails. Just like the name entails, it’s an actual barbershop featuring a hidden lounge. You can sit around and sip on spiked juices, beer, whiskey, bourbon, and scotch selections.
No guys’ weekend in Las Vegas would be complete without seeing a female revue, and, quite frankly, Fantasy at Luxor is one of the best. You’ll have plenty of time to get to the show as it starts at 10:30 p.m. Seeing this high-energy, sexy production is the perfect way to end your Saturday night.
Start your morning with an exhilarating supercar driving experience. Exotics Racing at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway features a wide range of exotic cars to choose from. Hit the racetrack in a stylish Ferrari, Lamborghini, or even a Porsche and take advice from professional racing instructors. Exotics Racing also offers drifting ride-along and go-kart racing experiences.
It’s time to start thinking about lunch. We recommend the Downtown Las Vegas self-guided culinary tour from Finger Licking Foodie Tours. You must book this exclusive tour in advance, so book early. On this tour, you’ll visit three restaurants for per person. This 2.5-hour tour allows you to feel like a VIP with no waiting and immediate seating when you arrive.
Now that you’ve explored a little bit of the dining scene in Downtown Las Vegas, it’s time to check out one of the coolest hotspots: Stadium Swim. Inside Circa Resort & Casino, Stadium Swim is one of the world’s largest pool destinations for sports lovers. There are multiple pools, two swim-up bars, cabanas, and a massive 14-million-megapixel LED screen. The best part is that it’s open year-round, so no matter what weekend you decide to have your guys’ trip to Las Vegas, you’ll be able to check it out.
For your evening plans, we recommend AREA15, located just one mile west of the Las Vegas Strip. Inside the massive complex, you’ll find food and drinks spots like The Beast by Todd English and Oddwood, and unique experiences such as Museum Fiasco, Wink World, Emporium Arcade Bar (pictured above), Five Iron Golf, Dueling Axes, and Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart. Each place has separate pricing. Entry into AREA15 is free; you must reserve your free pass online in advance. AREA15 is open late, so there’s plenty of time to check out all of the attractions that interest you.
Your guys’ weekend trip in Las Vegas has come to an end. It may be time to pack your bags and head back home, but don’t stay gone for too long. There is always something new and exciting going on in this city, so plan another trip here soon.
