Of course there is a lot more to Las Vegas than just casinos, as the resort offers an abundance of entertainment – from music concerts to live sporting events – but there is little question that it remains the capital of casino gaming. There are lots of great casinos there, but some in particular, are absolute must visit places for anyone with even the slightest interest in gambling. Top of that list has to be the MGM Grand, which just offers more of everything than any other casino in the resort, making it the place to go for anyone who wants to indulge themselves to the max during their visit.
It may not be quite as spectacular as the MGM Grand, but the Bellagio runs it a pretty close second, and it attracts casino games fans from all over the world. The casino section of this hotel/casino hybrid is absolutely massive, with just the slots section alone taking up an entire floor, and will be heaven for anyone with a love of gambling. This is also true of the Wynn Las Vegas, which has an impressive outer façade of glass covering the building and making it sparkle like a diamond, but really makes its name on the quality of casino gambling it offers, ensuring that it will be a popular choice with solo visitors to Vegas, who want to get down to some serious gaming instead of just going for androidcasino.ca.
For couples, the Venetian could be a better option, as this casino uses Venice as its theme, injecting a little romance into the casino games experience. The whole outside of the huge 120,000 square foot building is a replica of Venice, and you can take a gondola ride together, before playing inside. Or, for couples who prefer excitement to romance, the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino could be the best choice, as the theme of this place is Rio at carnival time, and it is one of the brightest, friendliest, most colourful places to both play and stay while you are Vegas.

In the last 10 years, Las Vegas has really made an effort to welcome the gay community. Voted in the top three most popular US destinations by GLBT travelers, Las Vegas is a playground for adults and has it all!
Recognized as a safe, culturally diverse and supportive city, Las Vegas
is on par with cities such as San Francisco, New York and Miami Beach in
welcoming the gay community. With more options than
ever before, it’s no surprise that gays and lesbians are including Las
Vegas in their travel plans.
Las Vegas has its own GAY HOTEL and the gay bar scene is ever expanding. And there is now an annual event in September called Gay Days Las Vegas.

Just a few minutes
from the Las Vegas strip
is a gay getaway.
Blue Moon Resort , is proud to be Las Vegas’ first and only Hotel exclusively for gay men. “Living up to being Las Vegas’ only gay hotel is tough but we accept the challenge!” says owner John Hessling who opened the place about 7 years ago.
When I told people I was staying here recently, I got GASPS! from a couple friends! They said, “You know that is a clothing optional place? It’s going to be like a bath house!”
Nothing could be further from the truth. Yes, it is clothing optional. But 90% of the people kept their clothes on. And it was not sleazy at all. Yes, they have a steam room. Yes, they have a movie room. But everything is very private, and not in your face. So it is not offensive to those who are not into it. They’re plenty of saunas and bath houses in Las Vegas. This is a hotel, first and foremost.
One German fellow we chatted with, had stayed there 3 times prior. He summed it up with, “It’s cruisy if you want that, or it’s low-key and private if you want that. I love this place. I don’t like the mega-hotels with all the straight people and noise. It’s so nice to just hang out and sip a wine by the pool and hang out and chat with other gay men.”
Luxurious huge rooms, great prices from $60 – $150, friendly people in a quiet neighborhood away from all the strip noise and crowds. It’s a hidden gem that provides a plethora of amenities with a fun, friendly, extremely comfortable and clean atmosphere.
The Blue Moon Resort overflows with quality, beginning with its 45 newly remodeled rooms and suites. The non-smoking rooms and suites have king or two double beds with down comforters and pillow-top mattresses. The second and third floor rooms have wall-to-wall carpeting. The first floor rooms have Mexican Saltillo Tile and are pet friendly upon request.
Just outside, guests are able to enjoy the lagoon-style pool and Jacuzzi with a 10-foot waterfall. The resort also has a sundeck and steam room. Among Gay Hotels nationwide, Blue Moon Resort’s Pool Area and Sundeck have been voted one of the best! Local Las Vegans have voted it the Best Place in Las Vegas for Gay Men to hang out on Sunday! Being Las Vegas’ only Gay Pool & Sun Deck, everything has been designed to offer complete privacy while sunbathing and enjoying the day with your boyfriend or making new friends.
Blue Moon Resort offers complimentary Wireless Internet throughout the resort. The entire hotel is wired for a consistently strong signal reaching all guest rooms and common areas of the hotel. In the event you didn’t bring your laptop with you, we offer two Internet Stations in the Internet Lounge. Surf the internet or just enjoy the 42″ plasma TV while sipping your morning coffee.
A free poolside barbecue is offered to guests every Sunday, April through November (excluding holidays), as long as the weather permits; and seeing as this is Vegas, it typically does! And many local guys like to stop by and enjoy the party. During our recent stay we met guests from all over Europe who had stayed here before, as well as local guys who live in Las Vegas, but came to enjoy the facilities.
Blue Moon Resort will wake you up with a healthy breakfast each morning. Dine Alfresco Poolside and enjoy the fresh morning air or wake your man up with breakfast in bed.
Offered from 7:00 am to 11:00 am, this full Continental Breakfast offers a complete array of Fresh Muffins, Danish, Bagels, Waffles, Hot and Cold Cereals and Breakfast Bars. Also available are all types of Fresh Fruit, Juices, Green Tea, Regular Tea and Colombian Coffee Brewed Fresh Daily. Coffee, Tea and Fruit are available 24 hours.

Experience Gay Las Vegas in the comfort of an all male environment
with a friendly staff trained to meet the needs of the gay male traveler. BLUE MOON RESORT
has continually raised the bar in Las Vegas. I had the honor of meeting Mr. Wynn at the Grand Opening Party for Siegfried and Roys Secret Garden at the Mirage in 1997. I was lucky enough to work for Siegfried and Roy as a freelance writer for 8 years, up until Roy’s unfortunate accident.
After the Miarge, Wynn went on to develop BELLAGIO, then WYNN, and most recently ENCORE! Everytime outdoing himself! On our most recent trip to Las Vegas, we were able to stay at Encore. And on the TV in the room, you see this video of what appears to be Mr. Wynn, sitting ON TOP of Encore! It must be a blue screen, you say to yourself!
Often it’s the question on the tip of every guest’s tongue from the moment he or she checks in, asked of bellmen and bartenders, front-desk clerks and dining reservationists: “Was Steve really up there?”
The answer—whether you’re speaking of Wynn or Encore, it should be noted—is an unequivocal yes. Steve Wynn did indeed stand, and then later sit, atop the roof of each of his resorts for the filming of their respective commercials. No stuntmen, no stand-ins, no computer-generated trickery was needed or requested; from the moment the idea was conceptualized, Wynn was passionate about performing this “stunt” himself, knowing the “did he or didn’t he?” element would inspire plenty of conversation. And so in the first spot, which debuted months before his eponymous resort opened in April 2005, Steve Wynn stood on the roof and announced, “This is my new hotel, the only one I’ve ever signed my name to,” before the camera, mounted on a helicopter, pulled back to reveal the glistening bronze building.
Given the considerable buzz surrounding the first ad, Wynn knew that Encore’s commercial, which debuted just prior to the resort’s December 2008 opening, had to take the concept to a new level. Wynn enlisted director Brett Ratner, best known for the Rush Hour series and X-Men: The Last Stand, and together the pair conceived the idea of sitting Wynn on the very precipice of Encore, 48 stories and 675 feet in the air, his legs dangling over the edge at the highest point of his now-signature swoop. Ultimately, Wynn knew he had to up the ante for his Encore announcement, and we’re sure you’ll agree that he succeeded!
* Steve Wynn marked the opening of Encore Macau , his new, all-suites boutique hotel in Macau, with a fireworks spectacular yesterday.
Steve lit the first fuse in Macau to start the display at exactly 8:08 p.m Friday evening, the number for success and good fortune, illuminating the skies above Encore and its sister resort Wynn Macau in an extravagant 10-minute performance.
Thousands of people stood along the Nam Van Lake and Taipa shoreline to witness the production!
