Martha Stewart’s Guide to Las Vegas


From a seat at the blackjack table to her luxurious new restaurant, Martha Stewart takes us to her favourite spots in Vegas.

1. Adele at The Colosseum

Martha Stewart enjoys a good Vegas show and thinks she has seen every Cirque du Soleil production. “Snoop Dogg is actually looking for a residency and he’s looking to build a house here,” said Stewart. “We’re coming back for Adele.” While the Weekends with Adele residency was cancelled earlier this year, in addition to the 24 rescheduled shows, eight new dates have been announced, starting in November 2022 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

2. Nobu at Paris Las Vegas

Martha Stewart is a good friend of chef Nobu Matsuhisa, and she’s also a fan of his food. Nobu at Paris Las Vegas opened in April 2022, a second Nobu under the Caesars Palace umbrella, though this one is a more intimate space of natural woods, perfect nigiri and sablefish with miso.

3. Lake Mead

This is a one–of–a–kind recreational area in the desert built around a massive reservoir formed by the Hoover Dam. It’s full of marinas, coves and sandy beaches, and it’s a favourite stop of Stewart’s. If you want a taste of the area, Lake Mead Cruises is a great way to take in the unique surrounds.

4. Blackjack at Bellagio Resort & Casino

What’s Stewart’s go–to casino game? “I love playing blackjack,” she said. Stewart would likely be invited to a table at the Bellagio, famous for its dancing fountains and starring role in Ocean’s Eleven 2001. There, high rollers feel right at home in the exclusive Legends Room (née Bobby’s Room), an invite–only area where the pot can reach a million dollars.

5. The Bedford by Martha Stewart

When it launched in the Paris Las Vegas hotel this summer, Stewart was on hand for the swish opening of her first restaurant. (So was Snoop.) Drawing inspiration from her farmhouse in Bedford, NY, the new restaurateur admitted she loves Vegas and will be dropping in often. And when she does, she will likely order the Smashed Baked Potato at The Bedford. “I learned this in Maine, where they grow these potatoes,” said Stewart. “You slice them, then smash them, and that makes them nice and fluffy. Then add crème fraîche and caviar, of course.”
