Do you like art? How about secret art? While you’re visiting Las Vegas, you have to check out James Turrell’s art installation, “Akhob”. Tucked away at the top floor of a high-end, luxury handbag shop, you’ll find an oasis of visuals.
Akhob is a word derived from the Egyptian language, translated it means pure water. The art installation includes soft circular openings that lead the way to two massive chambers. The chambers are filled with slow, always changing light, that’s rotating. The light fields created a dazzling effect.
When you arrive at the Louis Vuitton store., let an employee know that you’re there to see the art installation. They will be happy to whisk you away to the whimsical world of color that Akhob provides. After spending the day looking at art, swing by a minus5 ice bar location to chill out. If you have a big party, you might want to book a private event.

As if that isn’t enough, the store also sells exotic plants, children’s toys, and croquet sets. Want to make a book of your own? Just use their bookbinding machine, it can bind a paperback book in 5 minutes.

- Eating in the Dark
Next, visiting Las Vegas means trying new eateries! For a dining experience unlike any other you’ve ever had, you have to check out a restaurant called Blackout Dining in the dark. Did you know that sight isn’t the most used sense across the globe? Instead, different cultures place higher importance on senses like smell or taste.
The idea behind Blackout Dining in the dark is to help customers experience their food in a whole new way. By taking away your ability to see what’s around you, you’ll have to rely on your taste buds, ears, hands, and nose while eating your meal.
You and your dinner companion will get to enjoy talking and complete darkness, uninhibited by light. The servers at Blackout Dining in the Dark wear night-vision goggles to make sure they don’t bump into the guests or each other.

Another crazy fun restaurant you have to check out in Vegas is The Heart Attack Grill. Unlike traditional Las Vegas bars, The Heart Attack Grill comes with a twist. If you’ve ever dreamed of being served food while also getting spanked by your server, then you’ll be at the right place.
After dining on fattening, delicious foods, and milkshakes, you can sign up for a butt whack.

On top of being a fun experience, the food at The Heart Attack Grill is awesome too.
