Enjoy dinner and a show at top-tier restaurants in the city

There’s no better way to start the night than by wine-ing and dining amongst live entertainment. 

Although there is a diverse selection of venues that offer both food and fun, catching dinner and a show at Delilah Lounge and Fine Dining located at Wynn Las Vegas is a definite “must-do” when visiting the city. This supper club draws inspiration from Las Vegas in the ’50s, offering guests a vintage atmosphere and environment to experience fine dining and entertainment in a whole new light.

With opportunities to socialize and take in an ambiance of live music, DJs, Sunday Night Jazz, or special performances, Delilah is an exceptionally exquisite space to experience it all. The food is superb, but during HOLR’s visit, there was a special piano and solo performance that truly helped bring the entire dining experience together, ultimately making it one to remember.  

Keep in mind that there is no photography allowed inside the venue, so be sure to take mental images of the night!

Witness dynamic Cirque Du Soleil shows along the strip

Experiencing Cirque Du Soleil is an absolute must when visiting the destination. There are a variety of incredible shows to choose from, although there are two in particular worth noting and adding to your must-watch list. 

Cirque Du Soleil’s Mad Apple at New York-New York Hotel and Casino brings together comedy, dance, music, magic, and acrobatics to create an absolutely stellar show for those ages 16 and above. Starring Harrison Greenbaum, this is a HOLR favourite that will complete your night in Las Vegas.
