A paring as perfect as chocolate on Valentine’s Day, Sin City also happens to be the Entertainment Capitol of the World meaning, whether you’re single or madly in love, your Valentine’s Day weekend will be anything but boring. Whether your goal is to have a hot holiday, an innocent laugh, or a romantic rendezvous, listed in no particular order below are 10 Vegas shows that will satisfy each of these pleasures – naughty or nice.
What can we say; really bendy people performing what could be coined as acrobatic Kama Sutra is not only rousingly entertaining but sensually mood-setting as well. Be prepared to gasp, in more ways than one, as you discover just how the tantalizingly toned bodies of Zumanity have flipped their way into the climax of entertainment.
Treat your sweetheart to a sweet night on the town with this beautifully romantic, subtle love-story. Get swept away in the whimsical Dream while enjoying a sparkling glass of bubbly and strawberries in the Champagne circle seats for an ever-so-intimate evening.
What? The thought of rigor mortis doesn’t get your hot and bothered? OK, well good thing that goes for most people that haven’t seen this sexy, horny zombie-filled production. Putting a zany twist on everything that’s sexy about a traditional burlesque performance, the no-limits cast of “Zombie Burlesque” shows audience members that even though the hearts of these sex-frenzied fiends were devoured long ago, their romantic pulse is still pumping blood to all the right places.
Boyz II Men
Looking for romance? You can’t go wrong with a show that gives away 5,472 roses ever year while the boys from Motownphilly croon the deeply passionate love ballad “I’ll Make Love To You.” A concert of soulful love songs is not only ideal for inspiring romance, but it is a perfect excuse to hold your honey tight and feel the love for 90 minutes.
For the wild couple or the singles out there, the “X” in the title should give away the fact that this is not your grandma’s burlesque show. As close to a strip club without being a strip club, the elements that make this night of entertainment so naughty include sexy, topless dancers, poles, and chances for audience members to join in on the on-stage action.
Until Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Joe Manganiello do a live action “Magic Mike” show in Vegas, we’ll get our groove on – and get turned on -- with the hot, hot men of Chippendales. It may not be the movie, but this show can promise you many sexy moves comparable to those on the silver screen.
XBU / Stripper 101
Why simply watch the action when you can be the star of it? Spice up your love life or just crank up the heat and learn some of the hottest moves from some of Vegas’ hottest dancers for a little hotel room hanky-panky.
50 Shades! The Parody
They say laughter is a great aphrodisiac so why not get your mojo going with this laugh-inducing show that parodies the book phenomenon. Pair it with the movie that is opening on Valentine’s Day weekend and you can have a whole theme going for your Valentine’s Day.
What? You thought Las Vegas was just filled with boozy bachelor / bachelorette parties, guys handing out flyers for “in-room dancers” and women in g-strings posing for pictures on the Strip? Sure, that’s why we got the moniker “Sin City.” But underneath our rhinestones and make-up beats a romantic heart to rival Paris. It may be hard to spot Vegas’ softer side other days of the year but on Valentine’s Day we wear our heart on our pasties, leaving no doubt that Vegas is the place for romance Feb. 14.
Vegas leads the nation in marriages and a lot are done by Elvis
Vegas is the wedding capital of the United States with about 4 percent of all U.S. weddings taking place here each year. In 2014, 80,738 couples tied the knot in Clark County, more than any other county in the United States. Maybe it’s because we have no waiting period and don’t require a blood test. Nah… it’s because you can get married by Elvis. In Vegas we understand you want your wedding to be special and we work hard to make your dream wedding come to life, whether it’s walking down the aisle to “The Imperial March” from Star Wars or tying the knot in elegant, flower-covered chapel. This year marks the first Valentine’s Day since gay marriage was legalized in Nevada so now there are even more reasons to celebrate.
You can propose in style
Vegas has a dozen red roses worth of romantic spots to pop the question. The city has co-opted romantic locations from around the world (Eiffel Tower, Venetian gondolas) and invented its own (Bellagio Fountains, atop the High Roller in a private pod). Vegas may be a major metropolis, but we even have romantic natural locations within driving distance including Red Rock Canyon and the one of the seven natural wonders of the world – the Grand Canyon. But to ensure your proposal is YouTube worthy, there’s over-the-top options too, including proposal by Colossus slot machine, street magician, at a Vegas show, on the Fremont Street Experience screen, with a flash mob on the Fremont Street Experience or jumping off the Stratosphere (don’t get the ring out until you land). But if you are really over the top, we’ll let you buy out a nightclub and hire professional dancers and singers.
Romance begins in the stomach
So many restaurants, so little room to elaborate. Look, Vegas has got the romantic dinner of your dreams whether those feature beer and bratwurst or gourmet French cuisine. Of course we have the obvious – the Eiffel Tower restaurant, Top of the World, Alizé, Mix and Twist (all restaurants with romantic views) and every gourmet restaurant in town. Pretty much every restaurant, chocolate store and bar in town has something for romantic for you, but sometimes the easiest items are the best. Stop by M & M World at New York – New York and customize some candies for your sweetheart. Plus you can pick up some chocolate sauce for later.
Our shows are so sexy they’d be banned anywhere else
From acrobats to zombies, Vegas’ shows are sexy. So sexy, they’d probably be banned or regulated out of existence anywhere else but here. On Valentine’s Day we prefer a love story, a zombie love story. Yes “Zombie Burlesque” is sexy, sassy and there’s also love. But don’t stop there, check out roses and romance from Boyz II Men (they’ve given away 5,472 roses in one year), experience the sexy acrobatic maneuvers of “Zumanity” (the Kama Sutra seems tame compared to these performers) and explore if laughter really is an aphrodisiac with “50 Shades!The Parody.” Throw in so many adult shows – “Fantasy,” “X Burlesque,” “Crazy Girls,” “Chippendales,” “Thunder From Down Under” – we couldn’t list them all here and you have no excuse for not being in the mood.
Our suites are sweeter than yours
Romantic, sexy and just plain XXX, Vegas hotel rooms provide everything you need to celebrate your love or lust. Imagine popping the cork on a bottle of Champagne while sitting in a private pool that overlooks the Strip in a 9,000-square-foot suite. The Sky Villa at The Palms Las Vegas, will bring sophistication to your Valentine’s Day. Too tame for you? Then perhaps you need a suite that will whip you into action. The Provocateur Suite at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is black and red throughout with a master suite bed the size of three queen beds, a suspended cage and a giant cross with handcuffs. Did we mention the in-room amenities include a whip, paddle and silk rope? Forgot to bring your toys? Don’t worry, the Provocateur Suite also features 24-hour delivery from Love Jones, the hotel’s rock ’n’ roll lingerie and accessories store. You can also find suites with stripper poles and “intimacy kits” are becoming a common in-room amenity.
