Ladies-only vacations have become more and more of a thing over the last few years ever since Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Tiffany Haddish, and Jada Pinkett Smith starred in the 2017 film Girls Trip. Round up your closest gal pals and take a girls’ trip of your own. With all of its glitz and glam, there’s no better destination than Sin City. From dining and nightlife to shopping and spa days, here’s the ultimate girlfriend’s guide to exploring what Las Vegas has to offer.
Get the best of both worlds at The Cosmopolitan with a prix-fixe dinner package at Beauty & Essex followed by a VIP table and bottle service at Marquee Nightclub to cap off the night. Tao Restaurant at The Venetian and Lavo Italian Restaurant & Lounge at The Palazzo offer the same package with complimentary admission and bottle service at Tao Nightclub after your dinner experience.
Herringbone at Aria is another great choice to dine while in town. The hip restaurant, with outposts in La Jolla, Santa Monica and Waikiki in addition to Las Vegas, offers an expansive menu of California-inspired coastal cuisine and handcrafted cocktails. Dine for lunch or dinner or opt-in for the all-inclusive brunch and Bloody Mary bar available on Saturdays and Sundays.

For high-end retail therapy, stroll through Via Bellagio for stores such as Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada, Tiffany & Co., and SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. Over at The Shops at Crystals in the CityCenter complex, visit Christian Louboutin, Dolce & Gabbana, and Versace to make your shopping excursion complete. The Shops at Crystals also houses art galleries and upscale dining options such as Mastro’s Ocean Club and Wolfgang Puck Cucina.
No trip to Las Vegas is complete without a nightclub (or two) on the itinerary. But first, start the night off with a few drinks and good vibes at The Chandelier, a glitzy, multi-level bar, at The Cosmopolitan. Ladies: Friday and Saturday nights at Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay are all about you with free admission and a hosted champagne and vodka bar.
