The incomparable Hakkasa (Al Powers)
Making its Vegas debut with an electronic bang, the splashy five-story restaurant-slash-nightclub Hakkasan has managed to live up to its hype. With über-cool (restaurant-only) outposts in London, Mumbai, Abu Dhabi and New York City, the venue is hip, happening and celebrity-ridden (as it should be, given the millions spent building it and the [possibly] millions more spent to lure EDM deejay hot shots). Start your experience with some modern Cantonese fare on floor one, then work your way up — the cocktails are cool, the music hot, and the vibe is as over-the-top as Vegas can be.
