Honorees, friends, colleagues and readers gathered together during Las Vegas Weekly’s 2021 Best of Vegas celebration on Thursday, July 15, 2021 at AREA 15. From iconic Vegas classics to brand new, innovative experiences, awards were given to over 100 of the finest institutions and concepts in Las Vegas, each who help make Las Vegas a world renowned destination.
To start off the evening, honorees were welcomed with a VIP reception inside the “Sanctuary” at AREA 15, where they received their award certificates, took commemorative photos and mingled with fellow award winners, while enjoying light bites courtesy of AREA 15, complimentary cocktails, and Able Baker Brewing craft beers.
Attendees were then transported to an interstellar event within the “Portal” space inside AREA 15. Guests were greeted by space cadet clad TNG models and took photos in an intergalactic photobooth by Pop Up Photo Op and a life-sized astronaut photo opportunity provided by Fresh Wata. Complimentary Helix Vodka and Askur Gin cocktails were served, while guests enjoyed out of this world sweet treats from Happy Ending Chocolate and Nuage Cotton Candy.
