Loved the Hollywood Hills hike.

Throughout my time in LA in general I did feel like I was in GTA.

I couldn't believe how similar it was when I got to Santa Monica.

 

But yeah the Hollywood Hills hike is great. My big regret is I didn't go as far as the sign. I looked it up when I got to the top of Mount Hollywood and it would have been a 90 minute round trip which I didn't want to risk with the daylight that was left.
But in the end I had plenty time and spent that long wandering around the trails anyway so I really should have done it just to say I had.

Omnia was amazing. Saw Calvin Harris there on Friday. But crazy expensive. Not sure if it was just because Harris was on or if it's always like that. Entrance was $160 on the door and the first round of 3 drinks cost me another 160.

Hakkasan was probably the best night. But again it's down to the DJ. Steve Aoki was on and he was incredible.

Intrigue at the Wynn was awful. Apex at the Palms was quite shit but probably worth it for the views.

Drai's was good, both the day club and night club. It was a lot more hip hop than other clubs though so depends what you're after.

Didn't go to XS but a few people said that was a good place too. 

I got back last week from LV. We should have taken your advice and gone to Omnia on Friday for Calvin Harris. We went on Thursday instead, but they only had the front terrace open. Drinks were still mental, even on a quiet night - $44 for a large vodka and lemonade.

We went to XS on Friday to see the Chainsmokers, but they were rubbish and played a mishmash of stuff and it was just weird. Also, we had to queue to get into the main club building, this was after we’d actually got in the venue (but via the entrance taking you through to the outdoor/pool area), and once we were in the main club area, we had to queue to get on the dance floor 😑

On the Saturday, we just went to the Beer Park & various hotel lounge bars - that was much better. 

We ended the trip with a night in Hakkasan, but they played hip hop and that’s not my cup of tea. It seems EDM isn’t ubiquitous these days, so we should have be more careful with our selections. 

I’m going back for a mate’s stag do next April, and I think better planning will be needed. I love Vegas, though, it’s got an aura about it that romantically nourishes me.

I think if I went back I’d do ONE club, and just do bars and casinos for the rest of it.

Wonder if a mod can rename this to just Las Vegas?

 

Booked flights for June next year for 9 nights. Got a good deal on premium economy so brought it a little forward from October, which would have been to celebrate a landmark birthday.

Will be staying downtown as the past 3 trips have been, looking at the Plaza this time.

I love the strip, my wife loves downtown and as it takes a bit to convince her to keep returning to Vegas, I am happy to stay downtown.

I went years ago. Stayed at a hotel that had just opened if I remember. Cosmopolitan? Any way, the bit I remember the most about that hotel was a club called Marquee. Was absolutely mental. The night club was alright, but what made it bananas was the day club. Just imagine a pool club in Entourage style.

I am in and gone before thanksgiving. Mob Museum was pretty good when I did it, apparently they now have a bar there too.

Speakeasy at bottom of the gaff apparently. Supposed to be good.
