For those who scored tickets for the October 5 show, here's the VIBE guide on where to stay, eat, and rave while in Sin City for every budget and lifestyle ->
The Venue: MGM Grand Garden Arena (3799 S Las Vegas Boulevard South)
Hotels and Restaurants For…
… A Big Spender
Stay: Bellagio (3600 Las Vegas Boulevard South) It doesn’t get more luxurious in Las Vegas than the Bellagio – Serta mattresses, marble-floored bathrooms, and 27” Flat screened TVs are standard.
Eat: Prime (3600 Las Vegas Boulevard South) An establishment that lives up to its name and reputation, patrons can take in exquisite steaks and free-range chicken along with beautiful views of the Bellagio’s fountains.
… The Moderate
Stay: MGM Grand (3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South) You don’t have to pay a fortune to stay at a major hotel thanks to the MGM Grand, which offers room prices as low as $110 per night.
Eat: Lotus of Siam (953 E Sahara Avenue) Known as one of the best Thai restaurants in the U.S., diners come in droves to this establishment for yummy and cheap lunch buffet.
… On A Budget
Stay: Palace Station (2411 W Sahara Avenue) This place is a great way to stay close to the LV Strip without being stripped of your savings – just be sure to behave yourself at its 57-table casino.
