When money is no object, $450,000 feels like nothing to spend at a resort on the Strip. Now the Venetian has its new Want the World Experiences replete with private jets, presidential suites, silk pajamas, and dining experiences to remember.
The experience includes travel to Las Vegas in a private jet, a Maybach ride from the airport to the hotel, a 6,500 square-foot presidential suite with a private butler for four nights, monogrammed red silk pajamas, a Swarovski red crystal-encrusted magnum of Moët Champagne, and an armillary sphere made from artisan chocolate sitting on top of a cake with a 2.5-carat ruby and diamond necklace and matching 2.47-carat Burma ruby and diamond ring from Bellusso Jewelers.
But wait, there’s more. Also included: gold-flecked cocktails at The Dorsey cocktail bar, an in-suite Champagne pedicure and diamond massage from Canyon Ranch, and a four-course dinner prepared by chef Lorena Garcia of Chica with a two-hour salsa dancing lesson come with the package. Yardbird serves a 24-karat gold-dusted chicken n’ waffles and Cristal mimosas while Black Tap serves a red velvet cake batter CrazyShake with a 5.5-carat diamond bracelet from Bellusso Jewelers. Of course, a personal photographer documents every moment.
If $450,000 is too much, the Venetian came back down to earth with some smaller experiences at more reasonable prices.
Mott 32 has a red menu for $188 served in the Boom Boom Room private dining room. Hot and sour Iberico pork Shanghainese soup dumplings, lobster mapo tofu, and Alaskan crab casserole vermicelli make this menu.
Dom Pérignon by the glass at Rosina Cocktail Bar goes for $55 a glass.
The red velvet cake batter CrazyShake at Black Tap for $35 features a rim of chocolate candy and red M&Ms, topped with a mini two-tiered cake with red ombré rose frosting.
Chica has a ceviche class for $700 per person that includes lessons on how to filet a fish and assemble ceviche. Diners then get American wagyu beef served Picana style with a Brazilian marinade and chimichurri, followed by roasted suckling pig. The dinner ends with a three-foot wide churro sundae paired with a flight of three rums. Then comes a private two-hour salsa lesson along with a private photographer and videographer.
The restaurant also has a tequila class for $150 per person that includes six rare tequilas paired with light bites. This masterclass also covers tequila production, and includes tequila recipes to take home.
For $35,000, SushiSamba has a bluefin carving ceremony and omakase with chef John Um. This is followed by a 10-course tuna omakase tasting, featuring otoro, chutoro, and senaka akami, as well as rare cuts. Must be pre-ordered a minimum of two weeks in advance.
Once has a secret pisco sour menu for $18 that includes strawberry, charapita, maracuyá, or chicha morada.
Yardbird has an $175 12-course tasting that includes chicken n’ waffles, deviled eggs, and fried green tomato BLT as well as shrimp and grits and fried Oreos. Each course is introduced by the chef, who shares the inspiration for every dish. An $800 24-karat brunch and bubbles features chicken and waffles dusted with 24-karat gold, bottomless Mimosas served in custom bejeweled champagne glasses that diners keep, and a 24-karat gold chocolate-covered strawberries. A photographer documents the brunch.
Tao Nightclub has a VIP experience complete with an ice luge for bottles.
