Paris Las Vegas
The “City of Light” meets the city of sin at Paris Las Vegas. The centrally-located, Parisian-themed hotel boasts a replica Eiffel Tower, a mock Arc de Triomphe and French restaurants mixed with Las Vegas shows and nightclub. The vibe: Charming, France without the language barrier, faux French architecture What we love: Location, location, location. Paris is centrally located right in the heart of the Strip near Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road, which means it’s really easy to walk to several other tourist attractions and major hotels nearby. Mon Ami Gabi has been a Las Vegas favorite for years and they pioneered the art of outdoor dining on the Strip. The charming French restaurant serves escargots, steak frites, onion soup and offers a nice wine selection, but the real highlight is the outdoor patio overlooking Las Vegas Boulevard. It’s one of the best people-watching spots in town and there’s a great view of the Bellagio Fountains across the street. The Eiffel Tower is one of the world’s most famous landmarks and while Paris Las Vegas’ replica is about half the size of the original, it’s still an impressive attraction. Cross Le Pont Alexandre III, step into the beautiful glass elevator, and ride to the top of the tower, which boasts spectacular views of the Fountains of Bellagio, the Strip and the outlying city. Temperamental celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has several restaurants around town, but we think his Gordon Ramsay Steak, a London-themed restaurant at Paris Las Vegas, is the best. The signature dish that everyone raves about is the beef Wellington, but if you don’t want anything that extravagant, you can also get Ramsay’s famous fish and chips. Insider tips: Paris and the adjacent Bally’s hotel share a parking garage. The two properties are also connected via a walkway filled with shops so you can easily go back and forth between the two hotels and enjoy the amenities of both. Good to know: Paris Las Vegas really tries to give you an authentic Parisian experience, right down to the cobblestone streets. The uneven flooring that mimics cobblestones throughout the shopping area and parts of the casino can be a bit tricky to walk on – especially if you have your clubbing heels on.
