The Las Vegas Golden Knights kick off their inaugural NHL season on Oct. 10 when the Arizona Coyotes visit T-Mobile Arena. Hockey fans can celebrate their love of the NHL’s newest team by treating themselves to a gold-plated adventure in Las Vegas.
Here, six ways to go gold before any Golden Knights game in Las Vegas.
Stay in a Suite with Golden Perks
Guests at Aria Sky Suites have access to the Les Clefs d’Or concierge—“keys of gold” in French—the most elite group of concierges in the world. To become a member of the prestigious organization, aspirants must undertake a rigorous six-month vetting process ending with a final test that takes two weeks to complete. Aria has 10 gold key concierge members, more than any other hotel in Las Vegas. Fun fact: The entire United States is home to only 650 gold key members.
Drink a Golden Cocktail
The Lago Cocktail from Lago by Julian Serrano at the Bellagio gilds its signature drink with a dusting of golden flakes that sit on top of a mix of Absolut Elyx Vodka, Mancino Vermouth Secco, orange blossom syrup and butterfly pea flower extract. Fancy, right? The mixture is poured over an ice sphere with a seasonal flower frozen inside that creates a picture-perfect moment for those looking to up their social media game.
Eat Gold-Covered Caviar
French chef Joël Robuchon starts his tasting menus at his namesake restaurant at the MGM Grand with his outstanding caviar dish topped with Le Caviar Imperial. An edible 24-karat gold leaf tops Ossetra caviar and covers a silky crustacean gelée dotted with cauliflower puree.
Party at a Jewel
The gold-draped Jewel Nightclub at Aria features a décor replete in gold and lights that look like sparkling jewels. DJs such as Steve Aoki, Zedd and Lil Jon keep the party going after any hockey game. Those looking for a more intimate night out can head to one of the five VIP suites at the nightclub that circle the mezzanine.
Bathe in Gold
Well, it’s not really bathing, but more of a facial that makes skin glow. The Gold Facial at The Spa at Aria hydrates, soothes and erases fine lines. A gold face, neck and décolleté mask is applied directly to the skin to give it a more radiant glow.
