Apartment Living BlogFood & Entertaining › The Most Romantic Spots in Las Vegas

Despite a reputation based on naughty behavior, Sin City has a sweet and sentimental side as well. So get your A-game together and choose one of the most romantic places in Las Vegas for planning the perfect date.

St. Mark’s Square

Nestled within the Grand Canal Shoppes between the Venetian and Palazzo, St. Mark’s Square is more than a break between store visits. Underneath a simulated blue sky, you’ll celebrate the spirit of the Renaissance with street performers, hints of classic architecture and shareable plates of Italian cuisine from Otto Pizzeria or Mercato della Pescheria. For an extra dose of romance, book a gondola ride along the Venetian-inspired waterway that runs between the shops and leads to the Strip outside.

Mandarin Oriental Sky Lobby

The Mandarin Oriental is the perfect mix of style and seclusion. Its Sky Lobby sits on the 23rd floor with a bar surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows for the perfect nighttime rendezvous. If you and your date prefer a more understated experience, stop by in the afternoon and visit the Tea Lounge next door. It provides the same gorgeous views but with comfortable couch seating, pastries and a curated tea selection from around the world. If that’s still not enough, order a bottle from the first Moet & Chandon vending machine to appear in a Las Vegas hotel.

The High Roller

The High Roller is the tallest observation wheel in the world. The wheel carries passengers as high as 550 feet in the air, turning at barely noticeable 30 minutes or so per rotation. It’s plenty of time to absorb a stunning 360-degree view of Vegas and enjoy a drink from your own optional personal bartender. The atmosphere is so romantic, cabins are now rented out for weddings.

Smith Center

Who says Las Vegas lacks culture? The Smith Center is one of the newest and most lavishly designed fine arts venues in the country. Whether welcoming productions of Hamilton, Book of Mormon or Wicked on the majestic Reynolds Hall stage or an intimate night at Myron’s Cabaret Jazz, there’s something for all music lovers in this gorgeous art deco structure.

The Fountains at Bellagio

It’s hard to argue with a classic. Watching the Bellagio fountains at night never gets old and is an easy date that doesn’t cost a cent. Water shoots as high as 460 feet in the air, synchronized to music from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Celine Dion, or even DJs like Tiesto. If you want to splurge after all, make a dinner reservation at Yellowtail, Picasso or Lago — restaurants inside the Bellagio that offer spectacular private fountain views from their patios.

Hostile Grape

With a few wine bars around town, it’s hard to narrow the field down to just one, but Hostile Grape gets the nod for being stylish and social without being crowded or chaotic. Tucked away downstairs at The M Resort in Henderson, it has more than 400 bottles to choose from and more than 160 wines available in one, three or five-ounce pours. Mix things up with custom flights and discuss your favorites while holding hands across the table. The Hostile Grape also happens to be next door to the hotel’s scenic and spacious pool complex — a great place to take a stroll and burn off a few of those liquid calories.

The Delano

If you need a quick escape from the Strip, the Delano is an easy fix. The sister resort to the sprawling Mandalay Bay is quiet, casino free, ultra-contemporary and has a fantastic whiskey selection at the Franklin lobby bar. Head upstairs to Skyfall, a craft cocktail lounge on the top floor with an awe-inspiring view from the south end of the strip. If you can’t score a kiss in this location, you’ve messed up somewhere. But If things are going well, you can always book a couples massage at the Bathhouse Spa.

The Colorado River

By itself, the Hoover Dam doesn’t seem particularly romantic, but you and your companion can enjoy a half-day water excursion in the Colorado River alongside it. Black Canyon River Adventures is hosting a special Valentine’s Day motorized rafting tour for couples. The journey comes with a fresh rose, locally-baked cupcakes and a picnic lunch on a secluded beach. If you miss Valentine’s Day, don’t worry. You can book similar tours throughout the year.

Paris Las Vegas

Paris is known as a destination for lovers, so expect its romantic spirit to carry over to a casino and resort inspired by the French city. Paris Las Vegas has shops, bars, restaurants and a faithfully recreated half-size replica of the Eiffel Tower. Take an elevator to the top and check out Las Vegas from 46 stories above the Strip. Then grab a bite at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant for the best Tournedos Rossini in town.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with staying warm at home and enjoying a quiet date night inside your apartment. Whatever your plans, Las Vegas has you covered for romance.
