The Palazzo is the cooler, classier sister of the Venetian, though visitors to it can still sample the goodies of big sis. So what if the Palazzo lacks a fake canal with campy gondolas? The Venetian is merely a short-drunken-jaunt-through-the-shopping-mall or perilous trip through the casino away, so your party can get the best of both. And what the Palazzo lacks in gondolas it makes up for in newer, more spacious rooms, a classier casino, and 100% fewer blue men. The all-suite accommodations are some of the bigger ones offered in this town; even the basic room will get you a sunken living room so you can pretend you’re Jeremy Piven in Smoking Aces – except without all the hookers (we suggest). With access to the pool scenes at both the Palazzo and the Venetian, the Bachelor will hopefully be able to control his desire to dive in the canal.
Hit some of the lower-rent nearby casinos nearby for day gambling (Casino Royale, Imperial Palace). You won’t get rich at a $5 table, but you can put that hard-saved cash toward more important things later in the eve, i.e., booze and girls.
