Between the bohemian-chic interior and the refreshing cuisine and cocktails, Kassi Beach House transports guests to the Italian coast. When it comes to brunch, choose a fruity refreshment like the passion fruit-forward Subtropic Slushie or Coconut Crimson Colada. Bottomless rosé is also an option that pairs perfectly with the spicy pineapple-topped hamachi crudo, ahi tuna tostada or fresh veggie crudites.

Dinner (and AC) at Night + Market

Once the sun sets and the temperatures begin to drop, hit up Night + Market for elevated Thai street food in a sleek and retro setting. Originally hailing from Los Angeles, Night + Market puts a modern twist on traditional Thai cuisine, and it’s the perfect place to go with a large group looking to share a variety of dishes. The Thai Lychee Martini with Tito’s vodka, Carpano dry and orange bitters is a refreshing yet fun thirst-quencher that pairs nicely with a starter, such as the zesty Som Tum papaya salad.

The Cucumber Orange Hydrator makes for the perfect recovery concoction and is made with lemon, pineapple and apple.

One of the best ways to stay cool in Vegas is to snag a spot in the shade and enjoy a boozy brunch. At Todd English’s Olives, guests can enjoy refreshing Mediterranean food from a rotating menu inspired by the seasons. Start with the bottomless Bubble Bar options and choose among endless refills of mimosas, kit royales or champagne with other juices like cranberry, blood orange and passionfruit. Pair your sips with something sweet like the brioche French toast, which is topped with Nutella, banana, candied hazelnuts and vanilla crema.


Grab Drinks at The Shag Room

The Shag Room at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas spices things up with a sultry and intimate setting that serves up innovative cocktails and quality wines. Those looking to make a statement can partake in The Shag Room’s open mic night every Wednesday, or you can simply watch from the plush velvet couches and day beds. Though there are several top-notch cocktails to choose from, the Kentucky Bloom uses Angel’s Envy bourbon, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, grapefruit juice, honey and a hint of rosemary to create a vibrant and cool concoction.
