Paris Las Vegas is like all the highlights of The City of Lights, without the eight-hour flight across the Atlantic… that is, if you are into a version under the influence of American kitsch. The hotel itself is a retreat into Paris. It includes a half-sized replica of the Eiffel Tower, an Arch de Triumph that is only a third smaller than its older twin, and a reincarnation of La Fontaine des Mers. It’s glitter and eye candy everywhere.
Perhaps the most famous feature of Paris Las Vegas is the Eiffel Tower. Visitors can ride the 46-floors skyward for a dynamic view of the strip. Afraid of heights? That’s okay. From sunset to midnight, the Eiffel Tower produces a light show every 30 minutes. With 300 color washing light fixtures and 800 strobe lights, the light show can add magic to your evening.
In keeping with the Paris theme, be sure to check out the promenade. One of the more picturesque locations is Napoleon’s Lounge. Named for the famous leader of the French Revolution, Napoleon Bonaparte, Napoleon’s Lounge is an elegant cosmopolitan amalgamation of a Vegas showroom and Old World France. Sample Chambord-based cocktails, cognac, and bourbon.
Nothing says Paris quite like the cabaret. Le Cabaret Bar includes bistro tables and velvet curtains like a traditional French cabaret, with a wide variety of music to enhance the atmosphere. Guests sip cocktails while enjoying live bands in the evenings throughout the entire week.
Paris Las Vegas is like a nation in itself, beneath the blistering desert sun. Instagrammers will love its fashionable photo ops, and everyone will stay busy exploring the details that breathe life into this recreated fantasy world.
