Word has it that Bellagio is about to shakeup its dining lineup.

We're told the center Strip resort is planning to add a new lake-side patio for dining. It's not clear yet if it would be a standalone concept or attached to a current or forthcoming restaurant, but we're all for having another gorgeous spot to enjoy the Vegas Strip.

Drunk In Love With Vegas

March 18, 2014 at 3:30 PM | by | Comments (2)

The grandeur of Vegas can jade people pretty quickly, one thing after another raising the bar and making incredibly cool things seem mundane. But, nothing rekindles appreciation like a long night of drinking. Or, so we've heard. After indulging in a few during a recent bachelor party weekend, this writer found himself intoxicated in with Vegas. Here were a few of my favorite sights:

Go-Go Dancers at Flamingo

Strolling past beautiful women in Vegas is nothing new, but for some reason, I couldn't resist the moving bodies I saw out of the corner of my eye while passing the Flamingo. Like a bug to a light, my shoulders turned, slowly closing the distance and stopping to stand in the entryway, my left shoulder on the edge of the doorway. Careful: Limit staring to five minutes, lest you draw attention from security or, worse, fall in love.

Bellagio's Art Gallery Sends Warhol Back East, Welcomes 'Painting Women'

Much like the changing of seasons at their Conservatory, Bellagio's Gallery of Fine Art has undergone another big transformation. And, while "Warhol Out West" had a lengthy stay in Sin City, Andy's pop-art collection has now been returned to its home in Pittsburgh.

On February 14, the door was opened to a new exhibit of paintings, on loan from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. This collection is called "Painting Women."

New VIP Seating Now At 'O'

February 7, 2014 at 7:36 PM | by | Comments (3)

Allow us to introduce our newest VegasChatter contributor, LuckyDucky. She hails from a beach town in the south, but ended up loving land-locked Las Vegas more than she expected, and has stuck around for eight years. Though her tourist time is behind her, she never tires of corny souvenir glasses, the Bellagio fountains, and the Luxor beam. For her first assignment, she experienced a new way to view a Vegas favorite.

Front row seats to Cirque shows may feel luxurious but with performances on such a large scale, it can be difficult to see all of the elements when sitting close to the stage. Enter the new VIP suites at Bellagio’s Cirque show, "O."

If you want to kick it up a notch for your Vegas show experience, be prepared to shell out the big bucks. This VIP experience will cost you $295 per person ($335.45 with tax and fees), but can you really put a price on legroom? Many Las Vegas theaters sardine you in, even when you’re paying top dollar for those front row seats.

How To Celebrate The Year Of The Horse In Vegas

January 29, 2014 at 5:07 PM | by | Comments (0)

Although the lion and dragon typically dominate images of Chinese festivals, the 2014 Chinese New Year is the Year Of The Horse -- the seventh animal in the Asian zodiac and a symbol of nobility, class and perseverance. (It is said those who are born in the Year of the Horse tend to be intelligent, energetic and sociable.) To commemorate the occasion, hotels on and off The Strip will host traditional lion and dragon dances that you can witness in person.

MGM Resorts will put on a series of performances across its properties. Bellagio (Saturday, Feb. 1 at 4 p.m. at the main porte cochere), ARIA (Monday, Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m. at the main porte cochere), Crystals (Friday, Jan. 31 at 1 p.m. at the entrance near Todd English P.U.B.) and MGM Grand (Friday, Jan. 31 at 6 p.m. inside the main lobby) will each host their own ceremony. Yau Kung Moon, known for its trademark gold uniforms and innovative routines, will perform the dances.

Sipping And Pouring At Two More Great Spots

January 22, 2014 at 4:59 PM | by | Comments (0)

Time to fill up your glass with another installment of our Sip or Pour series, suggesting awesome drinking spots on The Strip. Getting right to it, here's two more bar recommendations from our @jproz that'll either let you sip on something special or pour enough to get you drunk the party started.

Sip

For an elegant drinking experience, it is essential to stop at Bellagio. This world-renown casino, with its Italian opulence and majestic fountains, has it all, including a bar that overlooks and incorporates everything it's known for.

Hyde Bellagio is a lounge in the early evening before transforming into a full-service club at night. But, the real value is the view. The nightlife venue is located right in the center of Lake Bellagio and offers a balcony perfect for toasting this Vegas landmark. Hyde's drink menu, it should be pointed out, is something special, too.

Meet the Funnyman Behind Bellagio's Conservatory

Where: 3600 S Las Vegas Blvd [map], 89109

Humorous head horticulturist spreads seasonal smiles.

Try saying that three times quickly. It does, however, help to have a sense of humor when tackling a large and important task. Whistle while you work, a spoonful of sugar... whatever it takes to get the job done. The man behind the enormous floral displays within Bellagio's Conservatory seems to have taken those kernels of advice to heart, and shared a wonderful sense of humor during this writer's recent visit to his “Merry Winter Wonderland."

With Sirens Out Of The Picture, A Reminder On What's Still Free On The Strip

Where: 89109
November 26, 2013 at 11:41 PM | by | Comments (6)

While most preferred the original buccaneers over the reincarnated Sirens, Vegas visitors were dismayed by the weekend news that Treasure Island pulled the plug on its free outdoor attraction.

During its original ten year run, the swashbuckling performance served as one of the greatest examples of the city’s family friendly era. Its more recent rendition, full of scantily-clad women and poorly crafted jokes, could be viewed cynically as a representation of the party pits and 6:5 blackjack payouts that many Strip casinos are now known for. With one of Vegas’ most iconic attractions no longer in action, we thought it an appropriate time to check up on the remaining free Las Vegas Strip shows.

Finding Scenes From Vegas Films: Ocean's Eleven

November 18, 2013 at 10:07 PM | by | Comments (9)

We've already tracked down some of the most memorable scenes from The Hangover series, now we're at it again, but this time with the classic, Ocean's Eleven.

A lot of the movie was filmed around Bellagio. We'll start with two easy finds that simply require you arrive at the Las Vegas Boulevard entrance and not via the Vdara walkway or Flamingo Road. First, the scene in which Saul is sent to the casino to place some heavy wagers and get the attention of Mr. Benedict. True to form with the real hotel, Saul walks right through the main entrance, in front of check-in and onto the casino floor.

Unfortunately for us, it's going to be awfully difficult to look as spiffy standing under the glass flowers as Carl Reiner and Scott Caan do in the scene.

At Bellagio, Fall In Love With 'Painting Women' Starting This February

Where: 3600 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
November 12, 2013 at 4:50 PM | by | Comment (1)

Just from the images sent out with the press release (shown above and below), we're crushing hard on Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art's upcoming show, Painting Women. So, an opening date of February 14, 2014 seems apropos.

After turning the resort's art space over to the works of Andy Warhol this past February, BGFA will be all about the ladies for its next exhibition. Painting Women, another in a string of partnerships with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, will "showcase 34 paintings spanning 90 years (1860-1950), revealing the story of women artists, their activism and artistic achievements." Featured artists will include Georgia O'Keeffe, Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot.

Bellagio May Do More Remodeling Soon, Or Not

Where: 3600 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

In 2012, Bellagio announced the completion of a multi-million dollar renovation of its accommodations. Specifically, the deluxe (read: standard) rooms in the Bellagio Tower as well as the deluxe rooms and suites in the resort's Spa Tower.

What has gone unmentioned, however, are the suites in its main tower (including this writer's fave, the Cypress Suite), but VegasChatter fan Jordan O. may have stumbled upon an update in that regard:
