The Luxor resort uniqueness extends beyond its striking architectural design. The edgy imagery of the pyramid shaped casino grabs the viewers' attention and doesn't let go. A huge sphinx dominates the outside walkway and equally large Egyptian statues guard the front lobby that opens to the buzzing casino floor.
Las Vegas Travel Guides
The casino floor has been maximized with its circular flow and interesting details to make the Luxor a must see. The coolest aspect of the Luxor's architecture is that it offers guests the luxury of two views from one room. The first is the beautiful outside view. Then open the door and you've got a birds eye view of the whole casino floor. Instead of having to walk and walk and walk down endless halls and elevators to reach all the action you can look out your door at 4 am and pick the table that looks hot to you. No other casino can boast that. The Luxor's gambling options are as exceptional as it's views. Slots, tables, a High Limit area and Poker bar are all available with varying degrees of buy-ins. The casino has every conceivable table game, video game and slot machine, as well as a beautiful sports book and a busy poker room.
There are other amenities that make the Luxor resort stand apart on the Vegas strip. Like it's simplistic yet impressive design, the Luxor doesn't try to overwhelm with too much. Instead the dining and entertainment options are carefully chosen to create a diverse sampling of the best of Vegas.
Take the Luxor's resident comedian, Carrot Top, whose show is as topical and full of propos as it was when he made it big. The topless show, Fantasy, is a scintillating combination of singing, dancing and skin. And the newest Cirque show, Believe, displays the mysterious talent of magician Criss Angel through an array of theatrics. And for a daytime distraction check out the Bodies exhibit or The Titanic artifacts show which are currently showing at the Luxor.
The Luxor offers dining options for whatever your tastes may be. Company American Bistro is a small plate sensation where you can sample and share a variety of dishes. Or wine and dine yourself at Tender steak and seafood. There the menu is only eclipsed by the wine list. And last but certainly not least is the sinfully delicious restaurant/lounge CatHouse The delicious food prepared by Chef Fazel won't be the only thing to drool over as lingerie clad performers dance around to whet your appetite.
If you can't seem to drag yourself out of CatHouse after dinner you're in luck because the party keeps on until the early morning. Several DJs pump different beats through the space for guests to dance to. Or simply drink and relax on the lounge's couches. LAX, the Luxor's main nightclub is so expansive it houses another club Noir inside and is connected to the Company American Bistro. Celebrity guest DJs perform on the two levels that make up LAX. The club is always packed full of sophisticated socialites and recognizable guests such as Paris Hilton and investor Christina Aguilera.
With all there is to do inside it's hard to drag yourself out of the Luxor. Be sure you do though because the sight of the Luxor lit up at night is one you won't want to miss. The top of the Luxor houses a light so big and bright that it can be seen from space and like that light the Luxor is a shining example of the best of Vegas.
