Free Things to Do in Las Vegas | Las Vegas Logue

Free Things to Do in Las Vegas | Las Vegas Logue: "Las Vegas is known for wiping wallets clean. After all, isn’t the point of visiting Sin City to go gambling?

BizBash | Rick Moonen RM Seafood: Intimate Upstairs Space Debuts New Fine-Dining Menu

Chef Rick Moonen has unveiled the fine-dining element of his two-story restaurant, Rick Moonen's RM Seafood. While downstairs serves a casual dining menu with sushi and a raw bar, the upstairs space offers a more intimate dining experience and a multicourse chef's tasting menu. For buyouts, the total restaurant capacity is 250, with room for 80 upstairs for seated events. The 16,000-square-foot restaurant has four private rooms in all, two on each level that can be combined to create a bigger room.

Moonen anticipated the opening for a year, and employed executive chef Adam Sobel and chef de cuisine Gerald Chin, who together completely reinvented the menu. “When I was creating the menu, I wanted to push the boundaries of fine dining and bring it to an entirely new level," Moonen said in a release. “The dishes we’ve produced are innovative, playful, and even interactive—part of the Vegas dining experience that I felt was missing.”

BizBash | Skybar Las Vegas: Day-to-Night Entertaining for 200 at the Hard Rock: "- Sent using Google Toolbar"

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Morgans Hotel Group have brought an outpost of Skybar to Las Vegas as part of the Hard Rock's $750 million expansion. Above the HRH Beach Club, the pool deck is available for day-to-night entertaining, with guests taking in the sun in daylight and the club scene after dark. The setting overlooks the Strip, and Skybar and HRH Beach Club nearly double the overall size of the hotel's pool area.

With sister locations at the Mondrian in Los Angeles and the Shore Club in Miami, this Skybar has a capacity of 200 and is available for buyout. (Kenny Chesney hosted the first private party there in mid-April.) It has an acrylic-edged pool with three cutouts in the floor that serve as windows to the HRH Beach Club below. There are plush bar seats, custom daybeds, couches, and banquettes dotting the teak plank floor.
