This latest resort of hotshot Vegas developer Steve Wynn's resume stands adjacent to the Wynn, echoing not only its shape, but its special elegance and luxury as well. At Encore Las Vegas resort you can expect the best the city has to offer, from the accommodations to the restaurants and entertainment.
The opulence starts with the generously sized suites, none of which clock in at below 698 square feet. These beautifully decorated mini pleasure palaces set the mood for what's sure to be a great time in this most luxurious of resort hotels.
As expected, the Encore's principal entertainment option is none other than one of the best. Literally – in house entertainer Garth Brooks has been selling out in Las Vegas every weekend. This show is a guaranteed good time, with the talented song writer unleashing a variety of hits.
You can dine like a Rat Packer at the delightful throwback Sinatra, or taste all the flavors of the Asian continent at the innovative café Wazuzu. Steak lovers will find a great meal at Botero and the French inspired Switch.
Entertainment & Nightlife
Never has a Vegas club been more accurately named then Encore's own XS. This poolside ultralounge gleams with all the luxurious touches you'd expect, and (of course) so much more. Bottle service is available at the indoor tables as well as outside in poolside cabanas, allowing you to take advantage of the warm desert air and killer view. The dance floor is crowned by a ten foot wide rotating chandelier, casting the beautiful people there in an even more flattering light.
What would a showpiece lounge like this be without a special signature cocktail? At XS, it's as over the top extravagant as you would hope: the signature “Ono” cocktail combines Dom Perignon Enoteque Champagne with Louis the XIII de Remy Martin Black Pearl Cognac, with a pair of stingray-embossed sterling silver cufflinks and a woman's 18k gold chain with a black pearl and an XS logo on the side. This delicious, sparkling display of – you guessed it – excess will set you back a cool $10,000, which may well be worth the prestige and the memories.
If the shine of the Encore resort wears off, you can always check out the
Wynn right next door, where you'll find entertainment, dining, and
nightclubs on par with what the Encore has to offer.
