Palms Casino Resort
The Palms Casino Resort, located just west of the Strip, knows all about style (just take a look at their art collection), and delivers substance with contemporary rooms, a top-notch concert venue, an off-the-charts nightclub, and mouthwatering restaurants. The vibe: Contemporary, artistic, an off-Strip oasis. What we love: The Pearl is one of the best concert venues in town. And the restaurants here are nothing short of spectacular. But what really floats our boat is the art. Globally renowned artists like Damien Hirst, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol and Dustin Yellin share spaces with contemporary artists like Adam Parker Smith, Eric Haze, Jason REVOK, Olivia Steele, Dabs Myla, Keegan Gibbs and more. Dope art and a comfy place to stay? Sounds like a win to us. Insider tips: One of our favorite things about the Palms is that it’s one of the only hotels near the Strip with a movie theatre inside. Brenden Theatres is a 14-theatre Cineplex that includes IMAX and JBX so that you can visit Las Vegas without the fear of missing the midnight premiere of your favorite superhero movie. Good to know: The Palms is located near, but not on the Strip. For those without a car, the distance isn’t walkable thanks to the I-15 and its on- and off-ramps. This means if you don’t have a car, you’ll either have to take taxis or your favorite ridesharing companies.
