NoMad — Las Vegas, USA
Las Vegas might not be known as a bastion of good taste, but the recent opening of the NoMad Las Vegas proves that a reprieve from the city’s abundance of glitz and chintz is very much needed.
Part of a multi-pronged venture that involved a makeover of the Park MGM hotel (the NoMad guest rooms occupy the top four floors within the Vegas staple), NoMad Las Vegas brings all the familiar features of the NoMad that we know and love so well; moody Jacques Garcia-designed flourishes, an intimate speakeasy atmosphere that permeates the public spaces, impeccable service and delicious food and drink in easy reach – all just on a supersized Vegas-style scale. Spacious guest rooms are eclectically decked out with freestanding pedestal bathtubs, decorative paravent screens, a curated programme of contemporary art and photography by the design Studio Be-Poles, and mosaic tile bathrooms that throw back to the signature features of its New York original.
Downstairs, the NoMad Bar is a vision of European elegance and sophistication. Helmed along with the NoMad Restaurant in partnership with the Make It Nice culinary group, its culinary and beverage offering packs a memorable punch with its gourmand, yet comforting menus. Armed with hardwood floors, sumptuous heavy drapery and generously sized armchairs, it’s easy to forget that the spectacles of the Las Vegas Strip are just mere steps away.
Among the most impressive features of the hotel is the NoMad restaurant, which stands within a replica of the iconic library setting in New York, only on a grandiose scale. The room’s 23-foot-high walls are covered in a staggering collection of books, while recessed banquettes, an imported antique French fireplace and staircase add a further air of elegance. The hotel also boasts also counts several private dining rooms and spacious outdoor pool, which has been set in an oasis-like setting inspired by the Majorelle Gardens of Morocco.
And for anyone who was wondering, the hotel has its own casino as well. Situated under a historic Tiffany glass ceiling, the high limit gaming floor is a throwback to the nostalgic glamour of European casinos.
