Marche Bacchus

The Laundry Room at Commonwealth

Feeling dirty? The Laundry Room won’t exactly rinse your skivvies. But it may wash away the memories of the previous night’s mega-club misbehavings. One of the rare things in Vegas that’s actually purposely small, The Laundry Room provides an intimate and seductive “speakeasy” that reigns prohibition chic. Sexy cocktail alchemist Juyoung Kang makes exquisite elixirs using farm fresh ingredients and a possibly a dash or two of magic. Send a text to 702-701-1466 to try your hand at getting in the door.

Pier 1 Imports

Warm, homey decorating stacked in cluttered but manageable showroom. Wicker and rattan chairs, coordinating bedroom sets, charming accent tables, endless throw pillows. Dinnerware and glassware in unusual patterns and shapes just the thing for sprucing up a plain kitchen. Quirky wall décor good conversation starters. Wait for a sale to get your goods at heavily discounted prices, and stock up on seasonal items on the cheap. Happy hunting.

Forever 21

Fast fashion gets mega: Times Square flagship rocks four floors of tween faves and bargain frocks. Pretty much every look you can think of, trendy and tacky alike. Choose from 121 changing rooms to check your fit. H&M’s cheaper, American-born counterpart is hit and miss with selection, but sifting through overwhelming mass of patterned sundresses and printed blouses is all worth it when you find that sweet $38 cocktail dress that almost passes for D&G.

Sunglass Hut

If there is indeed a fashion rulebook, it’s likely that rule #2 or #3 would reinforce the fact that accessories are key. Find the slightest glimmer of sun on the horizon and try to catch any self-respecting diva without a pair of designer shades to hide her face. Or any hipster sans Ray-Bans. Stock up on everything from Puma to this season’s Prada. You’ll see the world in a whole new light.

Alize

Perhaps the classiest thing at The Palms, Andre Rochat’s spectacular 56th floor dining room serves up French savoir-faire and fabulous cuisine to a sometimes unappreciative clientele of Sunset-Tanned up-and-comers. Don’t let the clash of the ultra-modern design and the country French menu bother you: just relax, look at the view, and let your tastebuds rise to heaven.

Breathe Lounge

Skybar is a white-hued oasis overlooking the Hard Rock’s pool complex – and offering some voyeur-style viewing into the windows of the new HRH tower. Multiple seating areas, a large bar and a pool – complete with peek-a-boo cutouts that act like skylight windows for the beach club below – provide additional entertainment. Skybar is only open on weekends, so you’ll have to take your Monday-night bender elsewhere.
