A Gentleman’s Guide to Having a Good Time in Las Vegas

When you go to Las Vegas, you’ll want to spend your time there the right way. You get in there, have fun, and leave satisfied, all while having an air of class and style throughout the entire trip.

You want memories you’d be more than happy to talk about after the trip. However, there are so many things to do in Vegas, some of which can overwhelm a first-time visitor. Nevertheless, keep the following tips in mind and you should have no problems having a good time.

Dress up

One of the hallmark qualities of a gentleman is his dapper image. You don’t want to be seen in tattered jeans or jorts and expect to be seen as classy and stylish. Dressing up is part of the experience. As such, you would be well advised to put on a suit and coat before going to the classiest destinations in Las Vegas, and wear a nice hat while you’re at it. Trust us – you’ll feel more confident this way.

However, as tempting as it might seem, do not go for a black suit. Many establishments in Las Vegas use black suits as standard attire for their staff. One of the last things you want to happen in Las Vegas is someone asking you where the checkout counter is.

Know the Right Places

You look dapper and ready for the true gentleman’s experience, so you’d want to know where all the best places are in Las Vegas.  You wouldn’t want to ruin the experience by chugging on cheap beer and chewing on chicken wings. Instead, go for classier restaurants such as the world-famous Le Cirque, which specializes in French cuisine, or Craftsteak which offers steaks in a fine-dining setting. These establishments let you fully immerse yourself in a Las Vegas fine dining-experience..

If you want to party and spend time with the ladies, there are also exclusive clubs like the Crazy Horse 3 Gentlemen’s Club. Unlike traditional strip clubs, gentlemen’s clubs follow strict dress codes and have a more elegant overall feel. They also offer premium brand cigars and even hookah, along with restaurant-level food, the perfect place for men with discerning tastes. They even offer free limo rides so that you can arrive in style.

If you want to just sit back and be entertained with your date, you should also consider seeing shows by the world-renowned production company, Cirque du Soleil, or Penn & Teller for a magical treat. Absinthe, produced by Spiegelworld, is likewise a must-see Vegas staple with its burlesque- and vaudeville-inspired acrobatic shows at the Caesar’s Palace.

Stay (Mostly) Sober

What’s a trip to Sin City without enjoying fine vintage? Las Vegas is home not only to top-quality restaurants but also the best places to get booze. Unfortunately, the latter is also one of the biggest reasons why many people ruin their trips. A true gentleman always has his head above his shoulders. Being a little tipsy is part of the Las Vegas experience, but no man in his right mind would want to be dragged off the floor with vomit all over his suit.

If you think you’ve had too much, go back to your room and get some time to recover. You don’t need to prove anything by drinking too much because a proper man has no need for such petty posturing. Besides, would you want a hangover to keep you from enjoying the rest of Las Vegas the next day?

Know When to Fold ‘Em

Lastly, it won’t be a proper trip to Las Vegas if you don’t spend time at their iconic casinos. This is one of the main reasons why anyone would want to go to the Strip, but that doesn’t mean you should go for broke. No matter how confident you think you are, you should never push your luck. Remember that at the end of the day, the house always wins. A true gentleman gambles for the experience, not for the chance of winning big.

Set a limit to how much money you’re willing to gamble or how much you want to win. Amateurs often make the mistake of betting just one more time to earn back their losses or to hope for bigger winnings, often with disastrous results. Sticking to your limits will keep you from being a finely-dressed man short of cash.

Enjoying the finest points of Las Vegas as a gentleman is one of the best things you should try at least once in your life. These handy tips should help you get a good start when planning to pay a visit to Sin City in style.
