For an unparalleled stay right in the heart of the Strip, choose the sophisticated Wynn Las Vegas. Beautifully designed, this exquisite hotel features spacious, luxurious accommodations paired with every possible convenience -- from top-notch entertainment and magnificent restaurants to an extraordinary spa and golf course. Plus, the hotel's elegant sister property, Encore, is interconnected, so its boutique-style facilities are just steps away.Making a home at Wynn Las Vegas is "Le Rêve - The Dream," a sublime aquatic creation staged in a theater-in-the-round. In addition to jaw-dropping aerial acrobatics, feats that celebrate the strength of the human body and spectacularly choreographed dancing, the show utilizes unique props and elaborate special effects. Restaurants at Wynn Las Vegas, such as Bartolotta Ristorante di Mare and La Cave (a wine and food hideaway designed by Steve Wynn and Michael Morton), include offerings from internationally celebrated chefs, such as Paul Bartolotta and Bill DeMarco. Many of the resort's star chefs, like David Walzog of SW Steakhouse, a restaurant known for its prime aged steaks and chops, live in Las Vegas. In fact, most nights Walzog can be found on-site in the kitchen where he loves to experiment with seasonal ingredients. Wing Lei features the mastery of chef Ming Yu, who gives a modern spin to the cuisine of early French-influenced Shanghai. Allegro, which prepares beloved Italian eats, is helmed by chef Enzo Febbraro.For a more casual dining experience, The Buffet boasts 16 live-action exhibition cooking stations, and Zoozacrackers serves New York-style deli food. One facet that sets dining at Wynn Las Vegas apart from other hotels in town is that every restaurant on the property has added vegan items to their menus.After a fine meal, the resort's nightlife offerings only heighten the pleasure factor. Tryst, with its secluded lagoon and sizeable dance floor, looks out at a cascading 90-foot-waterfall. Guests can enjoy another spectacular view while sipping cocktails at the bars situated on the casino or lake levels. This is where they'll glimpse the magical Lake of Dreams, which features nightly light, music and multimedia shows. With its golden facade arching toward the sky, Wynn Las Vegas provides a unique fusion of nature and luxury. From the towering mountain at the front of the 217-acre resort to the stunning indoor atrium near the lobby, natural beauty and natural light permeate the property. Lagoons, waterfalls, terraced landscapes and skylights create a tranquil environment. Flowers bloom throughout, both living and as part of the design. Even the carpet in the 110,000-square-foot casino -- which has more than 1,900 slots, a 26-table poker room, a full array of tables games and a 195-seat race and sports book -- portrays a colorful and thematic flower pattern.A gorgeously landscaped, expansive outdoor pool complex has two main pools, private cabanas, table games and a special terrace for group events. The Spa at Wynn Las Vegas was recently renovated, where guests can also enjoy a salon and fitness center. There's an 18-hole, 7,042-yard golf course designed by world-famous architect Tom Fazio and Steve Wynn behind the resort with breathtaking waterfalls, streams and a forest of trees.The marriage of luxury and nature at Wynn Las Vegas does not end here. Guests ascending the 50-story hotel tower will discover rooms designed with floor-to-ceiling windows framing sweeping views of the Strip, the golf course or the lake and mountain. Room amenities include upscale European linens, flat-screen televisions in the living and bathroom areas, wireless internet access and more.Nowhere else but at Wynn Las Vegas can a shopper leave the hotel with Manolo Blahniks and a brand new Ferrari. The Wynn Esplanade offers a unique shopping environment with designer boutiques including Chanel, Christian Dior and Oscar de la Renta. The resort also houses the Penske Wynn Ferrari Maserati dealership and showroom.Finally, a little known but distinguishing feature of Wynn Las Vegas (and Encore) is that the majority of its amenities -- from the restaurants, bars and nightclubs to the spa, golf course and numerous retail venues -- are owned and operated by Wynn Resorts. Run from top to bottom, this enables higher standards of service to be set. So the fine dining, swanky shops, rejuvenating spa and thriving nightclub are truly one-of-a-kind experiences here. -- Staff Report

Clean is about it
PostedApril 1, 2014
I was booked at encore with 2 queens beds specifically due my father being with me and last years problem at Bellagio when I had to sleep a week on a roll away bed because they Bellagio didnt have any queen beds that I had asked and booked. That's why I choose Encore. I very frustrated at check in to say the least when right away I was as informed about an up grade ! I listened to her sales pitch and up grade photos. Since this was my fathers 75 birthday I thought it would be ok. Desk told me daddy would have a king bed and I would have a regular bed brought up. The 850.00 wasn't the issue. It was the ROLL AWAY bed again. OMG and my father had to walk with luggage to the Wynn. I was pleased with the cleanliness food and shows that's about it. Will never recommend or return to Wynn or Encore.

A landmark Las Vegas hotel/casino with 59 years of history under its belt, the Riviera is a blast from the past, but also well in step with the present. Located on the north end of the Strip, this iconic property offers affordable yet comfortable accommodations just a short walk from the heart of all the action -- while also featuring several restaurants, a vibrant casino and an extensive lineup of entertainment.Noted comedians and headliners make regular appearances at the Riviera. Also scoring high on the laugh-o-meter is the Riviera Comedy Club. For one of the city's most longstanding and sensuous topless revues, check out "Crazy Girls." The male revue "Men the Experience" is also showing at the Crazy Girls Theatre. A parody of the reality TV show "Pawn Stars" called "Pawn Shop Live! - The Lost Episode" is featured in the Starlite Theatre, along with two nostalgic music-based shows -- "Forever Doo Wop" and "Forever Motor City". And German master magician Jan Rouven mesmerizes audiences with dangerous and thrilling acts in "Illusions."  The Riviera is home to the Strip's only walk-up wagering window. If you step just inside the front doors, you'll find a William Hill Race & Sports Book, which boasts 47 televisions among other amenities. Continue toward the main casino floor, and you'll discover plenty of table games including all of your favorites -- from craps, blackjack and roulette to mini-baccarat and pai gow poker. The casino has more than 800 slot and video poker machines.The Riviera also has several eateries. Located on the main floor, R Steak & Seafood offers an intimate setting replete with succulent meat and seafood dishes, while the Banana Leaf Asian Restaurant reinterprets Far East fare through a selection of Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai and Malayasian specialties. The Wicked Vicky Tavern carries an extensive selection of craft beers (including ales, stouts and specialty brews) and serves favorites like burgers, wings, pizzas and nachos. Plus, there's an impressive food court -- situated next to the Pinball Hall of Fame, where you can play pinball games that date back to the 1960s -- with options including Angelina's, Big Burger, Buffalo Wings, India Masala, La Salsa, Wok Express and Cheesesteaks Etc.In the evenings, you can always relax with a drink in the Casino Lounge. DJs, bands and other live entertainment can often be heard here.The Rivera has a lushly landscaped courtyard pool. Several shopping kiosks, in addition to a florist and an outlet of ABC Stores for souvenirs and sundries, can be found on the premises. Along with a beauty salon and barber shop, there is a gym and tattoo studio. And a wide range of wedding packages and services available at the Riviera Royale Wedding Chapel.With more than 2,075 rooms, 140,000 square feet of convention space and lots of dining, gaming and entertainment options, the Riviera provides its guests with a rich tradition of fun, charm and service on the Las Vegas Strip.-- By Renée LiButti

Tall, slim and sleek, Encore stands side-by-side with Wynn Las Vegas at the north end of the Las Vegas Strip. Both signature properties from Wynn Resorts Chairman and CEO Steve Wynn offer superior service from a dedicated staff and top-notch amenities ranging from splendid rooms to high-end gaming, dining, nightlife and spa experiences.Elegant and refined, yet not stuffy, Encore is the younger, hipper, edgier, more modern sister of Wynn Las Vegas. High-energy music plays overhead. A more intimate casino and selection of restaurant gives the resort a boutique-style ambiance. Being connected to Wynn Las Vegas, means all of its amenities -- 15 restaurants, extensive gaming options and an 18-hole championship golf course -- are also just steps away. It's the best of both worlds.Exquisite style flows through Encore's public and private areas with custom pieces such as carpet, furniture and fine artwork hand-chosen by a top-notch design team. There are 130 stunning ruby red chandeliers hanging throughout the casino floor. Worth more than $150,000 each, the glass was hand-blown in Murano, Italy. These pieces intermingle with spectacular horticulture and images of butterflies, a symbol of good luck, making Encore a living piece of art. Natural light permeates the 40,000-square-foot atrium at the hotel's Strip entrance, where more than one chirping bird has been spotted flying between the live trees.For entertainment, guests can check out the eye-popping aqua production "Le Rêve - The Dream" in the nearby Wynn Theater, which boasts a dramatic theater-in-the-round setting. The feats of athleticism performed in this show are beyond belief.While Wynn Las Vegas already provides a gastronomical experience with its buffet and some of its other larger restaurants, the restaurants at Encore are scaled down for more intimate dining. Indulge in a relaxed and romantic Italian meal at Chef Theo Schoenegger's Sinatra, the only restaurant approved by the Sinatra family to bear the legendary entertainer's name. The Pan-Asian café creations at Wazuzu are as unforgettable as the 27-foot-long Swarovski crystal dragon that dominates the restaurant's back wall. And guests at Encore can also savor steaks and chops among voluptuous sculptures by Fernando Botero at star chef Mark LoRusso's Botero. Later in the evening, XS nightclub lives up to its name, spreading a decadent nightlife vibe out into Encore's pool area. This is one of the most expensive clubs ever built. Adorned in gold accents, especially behind the bar, XS offers a pulsating indoor/outdoor atmosphere. Along with a 10-foot rotating chandelier on the dance floor, guests can enjoy the over-the-top atmosphere by ordering the signature Ono cocktail. Priced at $10,000, it comes with elegant XS-logo cufflinks and a black pearl pendant. Encore Beach Club and Surrender provide another marvelous day/night party experience for trendsetters. This lush oasis is separated from the Strip by cabanas outfitted with every luxury imaginable. During the day, guests can take a dip in the elegant pool surrounded by lily pads for lounging on. At night, it is transformed into Surrender, a chic nightclub with plush VIP tables, go-go dancers and live DJs. Encore is home to VDKA, a martini mecca boasting more than 150 different flavored vodkas, and Andrea's, a unique dining and nightlife combination. Andrea's is adjacent to Surrender and offers contemporary Asian cuisine including noodles, steaks and dim sum of Chef Joseph Elevado and the sounds of musical chef DJ Steve Angelo.Between its opulent design and relaxing body treatments, The Spa at Encore brings new meaning to tranquility and comfort, while the Claude Baruk Salon offers a full menu of services and even has pedicure chairs overlooking the Las Vegas Strip. Designer boutiques and other stores fill the Esplanade at Encore. And business travelers will appreciate the facilities at the Business Services Center, which include private internet suites, copy and fax machines, courier services, office supplies and a notary public.Decorated with art and custom furniture, the suites at Encore are larger than those at Wynn Las Vegas by at about 100 square feet. Boasting floor-to-ceiling windows, the atmosphere is also one of indulgence. Inside the suite, guests will find first-rate amenities such as a pillowtop bed, premium linens, an L-shaped sofa and a secondary flat-screen television in the bathroom mirror. Lights throughout are easily controlled from the front door, and can be dimmed or brightened depending on the mood. Likewise, guests can control their window shades remotely without ever getting out of bed.The casino itself has a private, luxurious feel, tucked between walkways and surrounded by columned pavilions, canopies and draperies. For high rollers, Encore is also home to high limit gaming and baccarat, as well as a unique Sky Casino for those placing a $300,000-minimum bet.All of these charms combined with its impeccable service and attentive staff have Vegas visitors cheering "Encore."-- Staff Report

Leave reality behind and experience the fantastical world of Le Rêve, created by Franco Dragone, at Wynn. French for the dream, Le Rêve, depicts a colorful aquatic wonderland of beautiful and mystifying characters. The experience starts when you first enter the theater and realize that this is not your typical showroom. The circular 1608-seat theater is situated around a pool that is 68-and-a-half-feet in diameter with the furthest seat only 42 feet from the water. The 27-foot-deep pool is kept at a comfortable 89 degrees Fahrenheit.Not only does the in-the-round theater put guests at a unique vantage point, but it also makes them feel like they are part of the show as there is no clear line between the audience and the stage. Gymnasts, aerialists and synchronized swimmers appear from every angle, at times ascending from the water, descending from the high arched ceiling or running through the theater and alongside the audience. If you are seated by an aisle, you never know when you are going to look to your side and see a masked face or other curious character staring right back at you.Le Rêve has a loosely woven storyline that begins with a woman and man dancing and then saying goodnight and goodbye to each other. The man departs the stage, and the woman lies down to rest on a bed. Together the woman and the bed slowly disappear underwater, signifying that her spectacular dream is about to begin.The music changes from soft and mysterious to loud and invigorating as creatures of the night arise from the water and emerge from the aisles and make their way to center stage. Some of them look playful and fun while others have a more malevolent appearance. Aerialists are lowered from the ceiling to join in the revelry, and soon the pool is transformed into a spectacular ring of fire.This is one of the many different scene changes in the show that takes place on a platform in the middle of the pool capable of rising 15 feet above the water. There are three additional lifts that enable performers to enter from backstage without having to get wet. They can disappear and reappear in seconds, creating a constantly changing stage area. Special lighting and water effects and a stimulating soundtrack performed live add to Le Rêve's spectacular production elements.Rain pours from the ceiling, smothering the ring of fire and revealing a bevy of beautiful women and then men who seem to materialize from the water. A tall, rotating, tree-like platform rises from the pool where male gymnasts do incredible poses and dives.Different acts and performers seamlessly flow into each other, resulting in a fast-paced and exciting journey where each scene is more amazing than the next. One of the signature acts in the show is a tango number performed with both synchronized swimmers in the pool and tantalizing tango dancers on the platform. It begins with red high heels and then legs appearing from the water and moving around to the upbeat rhythm of the music. Couples enter the platform creating a multi-level dance extravaganza.During another dance sequence, men with large white billowing fans walk onto the stage while the woman, whose character is dreaming, performs a whimsical dance routine. Beautiful patterns created by colorful lights are displayed on the fans as they seem to float and gracefully move above the stage. The audience also gets a view of the woman dancing on stage as a beautiful silhouette behind the fans.While the performers dazzle the audience on stage, in the air and from the water, what's going on behind the scenes is just as amazing. During the show there are 16 divers who aid performers underwater. There are also 100 hookah regulators in the pool to help performers travel underwater or to assist them when they are performing with their heads submerged for long periods of time.The fast-paced show means quick costume changes for the performers and a lot of running up and down stairs to get in position for their next act. A wardrobe attendant is on hand to operate one of the theater elevators, moving performers over 40 times during one 75-minute show. Eleven dressers are also working behind the scenes to assist the cast of 91 performers with 2,000 costume items.Back on stage, the cast continues to mystify the audience with more incredible performances. A lamppost is lowered with a man wearing pants and a suit jacket effortlessly leaning on it. As the lamppost hangs in mid-air the man balances his body away from the post and horizontal to the ground using only his incredible strength and agility to achieve this feat.Three more dream-like characters are lowered in a wire framed globe where they perform an amazing routine suspended above the water. They weave their way through the open frame and hang off of one another, creating a series of beautiful poses as the globe is lowered and then raised to different heights above the water. It is just one of many awe-inspiring moments in Le Rêve.Champagne CircleGuests who purchase the Champagne Circle seats get an extra special viewing experience. The Champagne Circle seats are the furthest from the stage but at only 42 feet from the water, this is still a spectacular view. Located foot-level in front of the Champagne Circle seats is a screen that shows pre-recorded backstage footage of the show before it starts. Once the lights go dim and the show begins, the screens give guests a live behind-the-scenes view of the performers when they are underwater, backstage or descending from more than 80 feet above the stage. During a synchronized swimming routine when only the performers legs are visible to the audience, the screens allow guests seated in the Champagne Circle to see how the swimmers manage to stay underwater for so long, one of the many intricacies that go into putting on this extravagant show. The Champagne Circle experience also includes complimentary champagne bottle service and a tray of two chocolate covered strawberries and six savory chocolate truffles.-- By Caroline Fontein

The fabulous feathered headpieces, the rhinestone embellished costumes, the beautiful, long-legged (and topless) showgirls – this is Jubilee.Jubilee is more than a topless revue. It is the only remaining showgirl production in Las Vegas. Choreographer and producer Donn Arden opened the show in 1981, bringing to the stage over-the-top dance numbers and elaborate sets, such as those telling the stories of the sinking of the Titanic and the Bible's Samson and Delilah.The show was reworked in early 2014 by choreographer Frank Gatson Jr., who attempted to stay true to Arden's original vision.Arden made his mark in Vegas when he produced one of the first showgirl production shows, Lido de Paris, for the Las Vegas Strip in 1958.Many of the original elements remained with this latest incarnation, including the grand opening and finale numbers with dozens of Vegas showgirls and showboys descending a grand staircase.The music has been updated, as has the theater's sound system, lending itself to a crisper sound. Although the stellar vocalists are singing to canned music, the sound is decidedly more modern, with a primarily R&B flair.In the new production, the show introduces Miss Jubilee and her glow stick-carrying, faceless companions. An unseen narrator announces that Miss Jubilee must travel back in time because "her rightful place is on the Las Vegas Strip … and her journey (is) to reclaim the night."She travels through the Valley of Sorek, where Samson and Delilah's ill-fated love story takes place, only to make her way onto the equally doomed Titanic "to find true love."Miss Jubilee makes her way to America, where tap dancing showgirls greet her to the tune of "You're a Grand Old Flag." The performers take on energetic dance routines that span American choreography (think swing, tap and hip hop), getting the audience to their feet.Gatson, who is pop superstar Beyoncé's creative director, told Vegas.com he took special care to stay true to Arden's vision, all the while adding new dances and the storyline of Miss Jubilee.-- By Nicole Lucht

International songstress Celine Dion is back in Vegas and better than ever. In her new show at Caesars Palace, the Grammy Award-winning artist performs her repertoire of hits and a collection of songs from other artists including Billy Joel and Ella Fitzgerald.Dion performs with 31 musicians, consisting of orchestra and band, who are situated behind her on the stage for most of the show. There aren't any back-up dancers. Instead the show puts the focus on Dion and her incredible voice. It also gives Dion the opportunity to take a break from singing to talk to her audience. After her first song, Dion takes a moment to express her gratitude for being able to return to the same showroom she called home from 2003 to 2007 with her previous show "A New Day."A video montage played before the show starts lets the audience in on what Dion has been doing since 2007. There are shots from her Taking Chances Tour, launched in 2008, which visited five continents, 25 countries and played to more than 3 million people. The montage also features video footage of her family including her son Rene-Charles Angelil and twins Eddy and Nelson. Returning to Caesars Palace and performing as a resident headliner in Vegas is a personal experience that Dion shares with the audience. "On top of all this, I can still do what I love, sing for you," says Dion.Throughout the show she breaks from singing to speak to her fans, making her performance feel like an intimate experience despite the Colosseum being a 4,300-seat venue.A stunning light and video display acts as a backdrop for Dion. Ken Ehrlich, who also directs the Grammy Awards shows, designed the visual presentation exclusively for the Colosseum. As Dion performs, moving stage pieces and a video and light display themed to each song, create an amazing audio and visual experience.During her performances of fan favorites including "Where Does My Heart Beat Now," "Because You Loved Me" and "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," vintage clips of Dion, along with shots from the original music videos are played. Dressed in a sparkling gown, Dion evokes multiple standing ovations from the crowd before she's even half-way through the show.There's a brief interlude with a phenomenal violinist before Dion reappears on stage wearing a blue high-cut gown. This time she's with a three-piece band to perform Ella Fitzgerald's "(If You Can't Sing It) You'll Have to Swing It (Mr. Paganini)." Dion's take on the jazzy song isn't what people are used to hearing from the French-Canadian ballad singer, and that's a good thing. She's got the power and pizzazz to make any song her own, and she does.Some of the other songs in the show include Billy Joel's "Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)," Shirley Bassey's "Godlfinger" from the 1964 James Bond film, the Paul McCartney & Wings song "Live and Let Die" and Janis Ian's "At Seventeen."The show's audio and visual effects hit an innovative high note during "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?," a duet that Dion performs with a hologram of herself."Well, that was a pretty neat trick," says Dion.This same technique is used for "Overjoyed," a duet that Dion performs with Stevie Wonder.Later on in the show the music picks up where Dion's repertoire of hits left off with her performance of "Beauty and the Beast," "All By Myself" and the French song "Ne Me Quitte Pas."The show also includes a tribute to the late Michael Jackson. Dion explains how the king of pop helped influence her own career after seeing Jackson perform on television when she was 15 years old. While wearing a sparkling gold jacket reminiscent of Jackson, Dion performs "Ben" and "Man in the Mirror."There's no shortage of hits in this show. Fans will relish in hearing Dion's chart-topping anthems performed live.

The best show of all times.
PostedMarch 16, 2013
This was the best show I have ever attended. I took my Daddy for his 74th Birthday, he dislikes all types of shows and music. Guess what, he continues to talk about how great the show was and much of a good time he had. He has not stopped telling all his friends in town
Thank's to All for making my Dads Birthday one that he will remenber forever. Both Daddy and I have finally grown closer.

International songstress Celine Dion is back in Vegas and better than ever. In her new show at Caesars Palace, the Grammy Award-winning artist performs her repertoire of hits and a collection of songs from other artists including Billy Joel and Ella Fitzgerald.Dion performs with 31 musicians, consisting of orchestra and band, who are situated behind her on the stage for most of the show. There aren't any back-up dancers. Instead the show puts the focus on Dion and her incredible voice. It also gives Dion the opportunity to take a break from singing to talk to her audience. After her first song, Dion takes a moment to express her gratitude for being able to return to the same showroom she called home from 2003 to 2007 with her previous show "A New Day."A video montage played before the show starts lets the audience in on what Dion has been doing since 2007. There are shots from her Taking Chances Tour, launched in 2008, which visited five continents, 25 countries and played to more than 3 million people. The montage also features video footage of her family including her son Rene-Charles Angelil and twins Eddy and Nelson. Returning to Caesars Palace and performing as a resident headliner in Vegas is a personal experience that Dion shares with the audience. "On top of all this, I can still do what I love, sing for you," says Dion.Throughout the show she breaks from singing to speak to her fans, making her performance feel like an intimate experience despite the Colosseum being a 4,300-seat venue.A stunning light and video display acts as a backdrop for Dion. Ken Ehrlich, who also directs the Grammy Awards shows, designed the visual presentation exclusively for the Colosseum. As Dion performs, moving stage pieces and a video and light display themed to each song, create an amazing audio and visual experience.During her performances of fan favorites including "Where Does My Heart Beat Now," "Because You Loved Me" and "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," vintage clips of Dion, along with shots from the original music videos are played. Dressed in a sparkling gown, Dion evokes multiple standing ovations from the crowd before she's even half-way through the show.There's a brief interlude with a phenomenal violinist before Dion reappears on stage wearing a blue high-cut gown. This time she's with a three-piece band to perform Ella Fitzgerald's "(If You Can't Sing It) You'll Have to Swing It (Mr. Paganini)." Dion's take on the jazzy song isn't what people are used to hearing from the French-Canadian ballad singer, and that's a good thing. She's got the power and pizzazz to make any song her own, and she does.Some of the other songs in the show include Billy Joel's "Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)," Shirley Bassey's "Godlfinger" from the 1964 James Bond film, the Paul McCartney & Wings song "Live and Let Die" and Janis Ian's "At Seventeen."The show's audio and visual effects hit an innovative high note during "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?," a duet that Dion performs with a hologram of herself."Well, that was a pretty neat trick," says Dion.This same technique is used for "Overjoyed," a duet that Dion performs with Stevie Wonder.Later on in the show the music picks up where Dion's repertoire of hits left off with her performance of "Beauty and the Beast," "All By Myself" and the French song "Ne Me Quitte Pas."The show also includes a tribute to the late Michael Jackson. Dion explains how the king of pop helped influence her own career after seeing Jackson perform on television when she was 15 years old. While wearing a sparkling gold jacket reminiscent of Jackson, Dion performs "Ben" and "Man in the Mirror."There's no shortage of hits in this show. Fans will relish in hearing Dion's chart-topping anthems performed live. Even if you're not that familiar with her music, Dion's charisma and ability to conquer a dynamic mix of songs is sure to entertain all audiences.About DionDion grew up the youngest of 14 children in Quebec, Canada.
