From its sassy origins in gaming and feathery entertainment, Las Vegas has evolved into a world-class meeting destination with an emphasis on luxury. What was most striking on a recent trip was the number of upscale arts and entertainment choices, including the rotating exhibitions at Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, multiple Cirque du Soleil productions, and the original masterpieces enveloping diners at Renoir in The Mirage.

For fine dining options, some of the resort’s most highly touted restaurants, including Bellagio’s Le Cirque and Picasso, are dinner-only establishments that welcome groups for private luncheons and late afternoon receptions.
