A little bit of Venice in Vegas
The Palazzo welcomed us as soon as we touched the ground in Las Vegas! Our valet met us at the bottom of the stairs, scooped up our luggage and lead us to our gold limo! What a fun drive to the resort & hotel.
Great location! The Palazzo & Venetian have a huge casino, tons of restaurants, lounges, and the Grand Canal shops that make you feel just like you are in Venice, including the mural ceilings, the indoor & outdoor gondolas, and one of my favorite things...an attached Walgreen’s incase you forgot anything or need to buy drinks & snacks for your room.
Our suite was huge, about 1,200 square feet! It overlooked the Wynn and even had an elliptical in the room. There is no good excuse to not work out when the gym comes to you. Haha
We tried so many wonderful restaurants inside of the casino 🎰 but didn’t even scratch the surface! There are so many to try, just another reason to go back! Here are the places we went to:
We just love a french bistro as we honeymooned in Paris and it brings back memories. We had the pleasure of having breakfast here on our first full day. We sat in the velvet booth with the palm sipping mimosas while deciding what to eat. Our server Amanda was fantastic, her recommendations were on point and appreciated. I would fly back to Vegas just for the puff pastry escargot! Just fantastic. We also had the blueberry compote french toast and American breakfast which I would definitely recommend.
*We went back again the day we left because we were so impressed with this restaurant!
Grimaldi’s (Italian, focus on pizza)
Picture perfect atmosphere, red checkered table cloths & wine bottle chandelier’s! This pizza 🍕 was fantastic-go here you will be happy & full.
The Factory Kitchen (Italian)
Great pasta and fantastic cocktails, such a neat spot, Before looking at the menu we were unsure of the cuisine, the restaurant is modern Italian. There is a neon sign collage on the main wall by the entrance where you can grab drinks and take pictures! The cocktails here were fun & tasty. Such a unique find.
The Dorsey (Cocktail Lounge)
A very welcoming place, extremely comfortable with a huge fireplace and library lounge area. Impressive craft cocktail list and great service! This is a place you could stay at all night.
We ate breakfast here, and boy was it good. The Dolche de leche french toast was off the charts! It was amazing, perfectly cooked and soft, it melted in your mouth! We also had eggs, bacon 🥓, sausage, potatoes & a sticky bun.
Black Tap (American, focus on Burgers & Milkshakes)
WOW! I don’t know what to say but we are still full! The burgers here were great & the crazy shakes - soooo good!
I can’t wait to go back and we have only just left!
We had just as much fun taking pictures with the food as we did eating it! The restaurant has a fun atmosphere with neon signs and murals all over the walls.
Mott 32 (Chinese)
This was Shawn & I’s first time having Dim Sum, what a perfect experience. Our server Valentino recommended some wonderful choices. We tried the hot & sour pork dumplings and crispy sugar bbq pork buns, we like them so much we got a second order of dumplings! We also tried the wagu beef lettuce cups & the prawn and pork rice. What a treat it all was. And our favorite thing was the special year of the pig rye old fashioned, yum! 🥃
*Try this place you will love it even if your are new to authentic Chinese food!
Electra (Cocktail Lounge)
Cool spot to grab a drink. Great selection of hand crafted cocktails with an awesome booth in the back corner for some pictures.
Outdoor Gondola Ride
The outdoor Gondola experience was so much fun we had a nice ride around the lagoon and under two canals. Our gondolier had a beautiful voice and sang us two songs! It was a lovely time.
The Palazzo took great care of us and even sent up a bottle of Veuve Cliquot & fruit for us to enjoy during the afternoon.
