Last Updated:

As the first new resort to be built on the Strip in a decade, Resorts World Las Vegas is a fun little concept featuring three different hotels brands, an Asian night market food hall, a poppin’ dayclub and a nightclub, and so much more.

While we have yet to stay at Resorts World for ourselves, we’ve certainly popped in many, many times to eat, drink, and party here!

It’s actually mind-boggling how many restaurants, bars, and clubs/lounges this resort has. With over 50 world-class food and beverage options, a 5,000-capacity theatre, and multiple venues to get your party on, we’re sure something at Resorts World will pique your interest.

When it comes to figuring out what to do at Resorts World, there are quite a few things you could do from partying at Zouk to stuffing your face with NY cheesecake to drinking at a tiki bar oasis. We’ve sorted through all the noise and mumbo jumbo to bring you a list of the experiences we recommend the most!

Eat your way through Famous Foods Street Eats

Inspired by the energetic street markets of Southeast Asia, Famous Foods Street Eats inside Resorts World features a curated collection of pan-Asian eateries by award-winning chefs from around the globe.

From international delights to street food favorites, the top things to try include diverse dishes like Texas barbecue with a Chinese and Vietnamese twist, flavorful hand-pulled noodles, Hainanese chicken rice, and Michelin-Plate-winning claypot dishes from Singapore.

You can explore all the offerings at Famous Foods here, but I’ll warn you now… there’s a lot to choose from!

Since you are in Vegas and on the Strip (as opposed to the actual streets of Singapore or Thailand), food here does cost more than you’d expect for a ‘night market’ type of place. Expect dishes to cost $15-20 on average.

Eat a slice of NY Cheesecake at Junior’s

Juniors Cheesecake Las Vegas (1)

When you find yourself at Resorts World, indulging in Junior’s Cheesecake is not just an option – it’s a MUST. Hailing from the bustling streets of New York, Junior’s Restaurant and Bakery has made its West Coast debut right here in Vegas.

Sure, Junior’s serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even a late-night menu, but the real star of the show? The super dense cheesecake that Junior’s has been mastering since the 1950s.

With over 20 flavors to choose from, including the original New York plain, swirled strawberry, chocolate mousse, red velvet, pumpkin, key lime, and Oreo, each bite is a little nibble of heaven.

Not sure which one to get? We personally love the strawberry cheesecake and the Oreo cheesecake! The slices are on the larger side, so you should plan on sharing with someone unless you typically down slices of cheesecake all on your own!

Catch a show at the Resorts World Theater

Resorts World Theatre is a colossal 5,000-capacity venue that’s an entertainment powerhouse. The biggest names in music and entertainment have graced the stage – we’re talking Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Katy Perry, Kevin Hart, Michael Bublé, Tina Fey & Amy Poehler, Theo Von, and the list goes on.

This is where superstar residencies and must-see events show up to make people’s trips to Vegas that much better.

Throughout 2024, you can join Carrie Underwood for upcoming performances and be wowed by her critically-acclaimed residency at Resorts World Theatre. Be sure to keep an eye out for the latest residencies and concerts taking place at the theater.

Spend the day partying at Ayu Dayclub

Ayu Dayclub at Resorts World Las Vegas is your ticket to a never-ending summer party inspired by the idyllic islands of Southeast Asia. This dayclub redefines the weekend with pool party vibes featuring big-time DJs like Meduza, Louis The Child, Illenium, Kaskade, etc.

Similar to WET Republic, Encore Beachclub, and Marquee Dayclub, Ayu is a top pool party spot for people who want the perfect blend of sun-soaked relaxation and high-energy partying.

Party the night away at Zouk

Zouk is one of the newer clubs in Las Vegas taking the Strip by storm. If you thought OMNIA’s appearance on the Strip was cool, Zouk’s is next-level.

Zouk, a 32-year-old nightlife brand globally recognized for pushing the boundaries of dance music, has found its home here, blending state-of-the-art technology with an unbeatable artist lineup. Ranked Asia’s Best Club on DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 Clubs list since 2017, it’s been drawing party-goers looking to dance the night away with the hottest DJs playing since the resort opened.

There is constantly a roster of international, regional, and local DJ legends setting the stage on fire. Think DJ Snake, James Hype, Kaskade, Gryffin, Odesza, T-Pain, and the likes of those guys. They’ve all performed at Zouk at one point!

Pro Tip: Reach out to a promoter who’s affiliated with Zouk and Ayu Dayclub to get on the guestlists (for free entry, free drink tickets, or discounted admission). If you’re celebrating a special event, they may even be able to hook you up with a specially-priced cabana/table at the club for bottle service.

Grab tiki drinks at Golden Monkey Tiki Lounge

There are at least 15 bars all spread out throughout Resorts World, which is a lot of bars for one resort!

One of the bars that we find more interesting and worth your time if you like island-inspired drinks is the Golden Monkey Tiki Lounge, where you’ll find a modern twist on the classic Tiki bar concept.

This little oasis will transport you to an exotic paradise.. and you don’t even need to leave Vegas for it. Once you’re inside, you’ll find yourself surrounded by lush greenery, bamboo accents, and an atmosphere that aims to transport you to a beachside retreat.

The Golden Monkey Tiki Lounge is located near the front desk of the Hilton/Conrad at Resort’s World.

PRO TIP: When you arrive, don’t be surprised when you walk into the upscale and darkly-lit atmosphere. This is “modern tiki”. For real traditional Tiki, you can head off-strip to two of our favorite tiki spots: Golden Tiki in Chinatown or Frankie’s Tiki Room on Charleston!

Find the secret bar, Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den

Ready for speakeasy vibes? Head to Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den — discretely tucked away in Famous Foods.

This spot is for people who appreciate the art of mixology. It’s also got your classic speakeasy vibes — dimly lit corners, classic leather seats, and an air of sophistication that whispers exclusivity.

The unmissable experience? Let the skilled mixologists surprise you with the Bartender’s Choice. You pick the spirit, the bartender makes you a surprise drink.

Drinks are on the pricier end here, starting at $21 a pop, but for the art of mixology, they just might be worth it!

Have a fancy meal at one of the Resorts World restaurants

Aqua Seafood & Caviar Restaurant - Resorts World Restaurants

True foodies will ogle at the long list of fine dining establishments at Resorts World. Really, there are Michelin-star chef offerings galore here!

You can pick from Aqua Seafood & Caviar Restaurant, where Chef Shaun Hergatt orchestrates a seafood and caviar masterpiece, Bar Zazu, a vibrant European café by Chef Nicole Brisson, or Brezza, serving up modern coastal Italian fare.

There’s also the reimagined steakhouse experience at Carversteak, offering both American and Wagyu steaks.

For the plant-based connoisseur, Crossroads Kitchen brings the first fully plant-based fine-dining experience to the Las Vegas Strip under the culinary mastery of Chef Tal Ronnen. Explore the high-energy, contemporary Asian cuisine of FUHU by Zouk Group or savor authentic Chinese delights at Genting Palace (we LOVE the glamorous “old-world” vibe and decor here).

The list goes on and on, y’all!

Sunbathe and swim at the pool complex

Resorts World Las Vegas is home to a massive 5.5-acre pool complex, making it the largest elevated pool deck in Las Vegas. In total, there are five unique pool experiences over nine bodies of water including a 1,800-square-foot infinity pool with spectacular views of the Las Vegas Strip.

The pools at the Crockfords, Conrad, and Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World include:

  • The Main Pool
  • The Family Pool
  • Athena Infinity Ultra Pool (adults only)
  • Bimini Pool
  • Cabana Pool

AWANA Spa & Wellness

For a wellness retreat like no other, dive into spa heaven at AWANA Spa & Wellness. It recently won Las Vegas Weekly’s Readers’ Choice Best Spa award!

This state-of-the-art sanctuary is a pioneer in delivering unparalleled experiences, featuring personalized treatments, immersive facilities, and accessible wellness offerings.

You’ll find an array of spa treatments influenced by both European and Eastern traditions.

Don’t miss out on the top recommendation – the extraordinary Art of Aufguss. Making its debut in the United States, this theatrical experience unfolds in a heated room, combining aromatherapy, choreographed music, dynamic lighting, and even dancing towels for a spa treatment like never before!

Get a Fat Tuesday

Fat Tuesday Drinks

Fat Tuesdays are a must when it comes to having yourself a successful Las Vegas trip. These oversized frozen drinks are famous for their flamboyant size and crazy colors.

When the weather gets warm, you’re most definitely going to see Fat Tuesdays in everyone’s hands while walking down the Las Vegas Strip. It’s easy to see why — it’s the absolute best spot to grab yourself a cheap frozen drink right before taking a stroll on the Strip!

If you want to feel a bit more than tipsy, they offer you the option to add a shot(s) to your daiquiris for an extra dollar a shot. Cheap drunkenness, gotta love it!

Everyone’s drink of choice at Fat Tuesday differs depending on who you ask, but our group loves to order the Big Stick flavor off their secret menu, which tastes like a Big Stick ice pop but with alcohol!

The Fat Tuesday inside Resorts World is located in The Plaza.

Enjoy drinks with a view on the 66th floor

Elevate your Las Vegas experience at Allē Lounge on 66, where you’ll find a rather sophisticated bar featuring some of the best views of the Strip — 66 floors above the city.

Like many of the Resorts World bars, mixology takes center stage here.

Some of the most creative signature cocktails include the Banana Bread, featuring Howler Head Banana Bourbon Whiskey, coconut syrup, and almond milk.

If you’re in the mood for an elevated espresso martini instead, the Cookie Butter Espresso Martini is a decadent combination of Absolut Vanilla Vodka, Kahlua, cookie butter, and espresso!

Go shopping

Sphere at Resorts World

Resorts World is home to The District, a 70,000 square feet area of dedicated retail space next to the casino. With two levels of unique offerings, discover everything from renowned luxury and lifestyle apparel brands to cutting-edge experiential venues.

Unlike many other luxury malls within hotels, you won’t find Cartier, Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton, etc., here. The brands are unique and eclectic here.

Whether you’re drawn to the premium lifestyle apparel at Black Clover, artisan jewelry from Corso, cute candies at Sugarfina, or the boozy ice cream selections at Aubi & Ramsa, we’re sure you’ll find something interesting here.

You can also indulge in a luxury cake experience at Lady M, explore customizable Italian handbags at O Bag, or enhance your Formula 1 fandom with Racing Miami Las Vegas.

Wally’s is another interesting place to check out. You can enjoy over 8,000 labels of wine, spirits, beer, and specialty gourmet food items from around the globe, available for sale or as a sit-down experience.

Try hot pot at Copper Sun

Copper Sun is the first fine dining concept from the celebrated Happy Lamb Hot Pot chain of restaurants. Copper Sun serves hot pot, but it’s way more elevated than just regular ol’ hot pot.

This renowned restaurant chain, rooted in Inner Mongolia, redefines dining by sourcing the world’s finest lamb from pastures worldwide. Expect a lavish banquet experience, offering impeccable dining environments, utensils, service, and exceptional food quality. 

Try your luck on the casino floor

Resorts World Casino Bar

The gaming space is going to be one of the first things you see at Resorts World. It’s stylish as heck! Plus, the fact that it doesn’t reek of cigarette smoke makes it that much more sleek and enjoyable.

It comes complete with slots, table games, a dedicated poker room, high-limit areas and a sportsbook. In total, there are 1,400 slot machines, 117 table games and 30 poker tables.
