Luxor (Las Vegas)

Almost like kissing the Nile goodbye

Opened in the 1990s as a casino hotel with a wacky theme, this jet-black pyramid with the Sphinx out front is still topped by a beacon that some say is visible by astronauts from space. Inside there’s less hieroglyphic kitsch and more naked sex appeal than ever before. Take a peep at Fantasy topless revue, then party all night at LAX nightclub.

Also at Luxor, Carrot Top does his comedic shtick while illusionist Criss Angel performs as a heartthrob goth Victorian noble in a laughable
Cirque du Soleil show.

Hit up T&T (Tacos & Tequila), a twisted rock ‘n’ roll–style cantina, for a Mexican mariachi hangover brunch.

Two unique exhibitions, Titanic and Bodies, are currently on display at Luxor. You’ll find both upstairs from the casino, near the skybridge over to Mandalay Bay. The price of admission to either is high, but if you’re even the tiniest bit interested in the subject matter, they’re worth it.

A free tram connects Luxor with the Excalibur and Mandalay Bay casino hotels, or you can walk between Luxor and Mandalay Bay via Mandalay Place mall.

Luxor’s hotel rooms are badly in need of renovations. It’s not one of our top picks for sleeping on the Strip, especially not with such long check-in lines and aggressive timeshare salespeople near the hotel lobby. If you want a quiet night’s sleep, avoid rooms on the lower floors of the pyramid.
