Ditch the doilies, chocolate overdose and obnoxious PDA this Valentine’s Day – there’s no love worth celebrating more than the bond of girlfriends. Instead of wallowing at home as engagement announcements saturate your Facebook feed, grab your girls and head to the chic ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas because Sin City doesn’t discriminate based on relationship status.
Here’s the perfect prescription for 24 hours of Vegas Valentine’s bliss for all the single ladies:
Make it a Spa-liday
Unwind together at The Spa & Salon at ARIA, an oasis for quality catch-up time with your girls. Splurge and rent a Spa Suite complete with champagne and treatments for the whole crew all in your own private retreat. Or, opt for the $30 day pass for access to all the spa’s facilities including special therapy lounges like the Shio Salt Room to make your skin dewy and beautiful and Ganbanyoku Stone Beds for increased metabolism.
Shop Til You Drop
Shop an unrivaled collection of designer brands at ARIA’s neighboring The Shops at Crystals. Find something special for you (and only you) at luxury adult boutique, Kiki de Montparnasse. Perfect your look with products from Sisley’s only U.S. store outside NYC then get to know some real men – like Mr. Choo, Mr. Ford and Mr. Winston.
Toast to the Best
Kick off your night with a champagne toast at Lobby Bar, ARIA’s epicenter to see and be seen and home to one of the most robust bubbly-by-the-glass lists found anywhere. Or treat yourself with a bottle of Special Club, an exclusive accolade awarded only to the most distinguished small producers in the Champagne region.
Eat Your Heart Out
For dinner, share in world-class Spanish tapas at James Beard Award-winning Chef Julian Serrano’s eponymous restaurant. Split playful dishes such as Huevos Estrellados and Pan Serrano while pouring from pitchers of the sexy hotspot’s signature sangria. Late night, prevent the next day’s hangover at FIVE50 Pizza Bar’s slice counter. There’s no need for restraint when it comes to grabbing an extra slice of this cheesy, gourmet goodness – you’re with the girls.
Shake It Off
There’s no better feeling than knowing your crew is at their finest, and nowhere better than Vegas to revel in it. As the city’s nightlife scene is ever-evolving, options for a fabulous evening on the town always abound. To kick things off, imbibe at ARIA’s new cocktail lounge, Alibi, then venture upstairs to the resort’s boutique nightclub, GOLD Lounge, for a stylish, intimate setting to dance the night away.
Wake Up and Smell the Rosé
Sip on bottomless rosé while recounting the mischief of the previous night during brunch at the brand new BARDOT Brasserie, Vegas’ debut French concept from James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Mina. The new hot spot pays homage to The City of Light in both atmosphere and cuisine and serves decadent twists on Parisian classics such as Lobster Croissant Benedict, Brioche French Toast, plus inventive breakfast cocktails and bubbly for days.
