Every town has their hidden gems – their “secret” local hangouts. You have to be on the inside in order to have the privilege of knowing about these trendy spots. Well, I’m here to give you a little insider information.
Just about everyone knows about the famous Fremont Street Experience, and you may even know about the Rock of Vegas Summer Concert Series and the new Slotzilla zipline (that is being constructed all the way down Fremont Street). But what you may not know is that when you venture off Fremont Street you will find a bevy of speakeasy bars, a plethora of amazing food choices, and more art galleries than one person could see in a day – each injecting a thrilling sense of adventure and mischief into the regular Vegas experience. For the uninitiated, exploring downtown can be like opening a treasure chest of entertainment.
Food is definitely plentiful in downtown Las Vegas and should not be overlooked. Key restaurants provide the best in American and foreign food, from the infamous burger joint Heart Attack Grill, to the gourmet, specialized food of eat. and even the wide selection at Le Thai. It certainly is easy to work up an appetite in this city so indulge yourself and try out one of these greats.
The Laundry Room is hidden behind secret doors and has no markings. The unsuspecting might walk right by without any knowledge of the excitement held inside. This modern speakeasy bar operates under anonymity and specializes in classic cocktails. One of its unique features is the chance to simply name your preferred type of alcohol and have the bartender create something special for you. If you can find this hidden gem, make sure you make a reservation. Not on the list? No entrance! The Lady Silvia also falls under the category of the modern speakeasy, but come on in! No reservation required!
There is no shortage of exciting activities when you step away from the downtown Las Vegas casinos, and engaging in downtown has never been more fun, so stop by and see what you’re missing!

No need to fear the summer heat. Cooling off has never been so much fun and entertaining. Soak 75 at the Plaza Hotel is the summer entertainment series to ensure that catching those rays and cooling off at a pool and hotel in Las Vegas are loads of fun.
The pool deck is open to the public on Fridays and Saturdays from 8 am to 8 pm.
Fridays, enjoy drink specials and the smoothing acoustics of Cameron from 4 pm to 8 pm poolside. Saturdays bring more drink specials and the energy of DJ Ryno from 2 pm to 6 pm.
When you’re ready for a little A/C go on inside. There are just as many things to do and ways to stay and be cool at the Plaza.
Pool parties happen at many different venues and attract hundreds of people each day. The best way to enjoy them is to arrive early, stake out your spot and enjoy the water as people flood in throughout the day. Happy hour at one of many bars is always an option as well. Something about an ice cold beer or cocktail sure makes it easy to forget the heat and take your relaxation to the next level.
There is also plenty on offer as far as Las Vegas entertainment goes. From shows to casino floors, and plenty of great dining options, this city has everything you could possibly want and more. Enjoying the air conditioning in any number of locations can provide a welcome break so check out a museum, eat in one of the countless buffets or restaurants, sit back and enjoy.
Summer temperatures bring a little sizzle almost everywhere. Only in Las Vegas does the fun and entertainment out-sizzle the heat.

On July 1, 2013, the Plaza & Las Vegas Club launched Royalty Rewards, a brand new, four-tiered casino loyalty program, poised to lead the industry with some of the most advantageous Las Vegas casino rewards available. While most casinos offer a players club program of some sort, the Plaza & Las Vegas Club are unique in their approach to providing loyal players with the best deals in the city.
Royal Rewards boasts instant competitor tier matching, meaning that members of other players club programs from any casino in Las Vegas will immediately be placed into a comparable tier in Royal Rewards, where they can reap the same level of benefits they’ve been accustomed to right from the very first day they sign up! Royal Rewards also offers the city’s fastest tier advancement, so leveling up is faster and easier than you ever thought possible!
Royal Rewards spreads across four tiers, aptly named Jack, Queen, King, and Ace, with increasing benefits as you advance from one tier to the next. Queen members receive 10% off hotel rooms, dining, and show tickets, while Kings receive 20% off, and Aces an incredible 30% off! King and Ace members also receive the added perks of guaranteed room upgrades, anytime pool and fitness center access, VIP lines throughout both properties, priority valet parking, and that just scratches the surface! We haven’t even gotten to the gaming perks yet…
Media Planet’s Vince Esposito declares:
“I get “insider” information on industry related news- expert feedback, product/ service reviews, consumer response etc. Well, in speaking with several of these sources, they raved about Royal Rewards! The industry experts and insiders spoke very highly of the program, calling it ‘a phenomenal program that LV visitors should take advantage of’ and ‘Royal Rewards stands out in a crowded picture.’”
On July 1, the very first player to tier match into Royal Rewards came to the Plaza and presented a Total Rewards Seven Stars card, and was immediately matched to the Ace tier. Less than six hours later, he hit a Royal Flush jackpot for $20,000, and because of his Ace status, he received an additional 100% back in free slot play, for a total win of $40,000. It doesn’t get much better than that!
Media and public support for Royal Rewards has already been overwhelmingly positive. VegasChatter.com said that Royal Rewards “now joins Boyd Gaming casinos as the most transparent and detailed players clubs in downtown,” while 4Flush.com claims it’s “an improvement just about across the board. The higher tiers are easily the best player’s club for slot players in Las Vegas.” Even our own customers are chiming in to say things like: “I’ve been a member of basically every rewards program in Vegas (I swear, I don’t have a problem) and this seems like it’s by-far the best one yet.”
The Plaza & Las Vegas Club’s approach to downtown Las Vegas gaming is geared towards offering their most loyal players the absolute most rewarding experience possible. In just the first 11 days following its debut, Royal Rewards had 282 tier matches, and that number continues to grow each and every day.
You might already be royalty and not even know it. So what are you waiting for?
