Holly Madison's new Bourbon Burlesque makes its debut tonight inside 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque at Mandalay Place. Why not spend a Perfect Saturday with some shopping and primping before the show at the stores there? Here, a look at four ways to explore some of the boutiques and the hair salon there before the doors swing open for the new speakeasy.
Stock up on fashionable menswear at Elton's Men Store (702-990-0571), a mainstay at Mandalay Place. Diesel, 1921 Denim, Eton, The Great China Wall and Hugo Boss are just some of the labels you can find at this store that tends to skew trendy.
On the women's side, mainstay Nora Blue (702-932-9025) offers up hip, girly designs from Frank Lyman, glamorous confections from Mac Dugall, and rock-chick pieces from The Great China Wall. Go feminine, go breezy chic or go cutting edge funky here.
There's always time to stock up on the conscientious cosmetics at the original Lush (702-227-5874). Be sure to pick up some bath bombs and bubble bars to make your next soak in the tub luxurious.
Get a quick blowout (starting at $40) or your nails done ($30) for a reasonable price at this Walk In Salon by Robert Cromeans (702-632-9380).
Cap off your night at the new 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque, where Holly Madison herself now performs. Here find the Prohibition-era of bootleg liquor and cabaret. The alluring dancers of Bourbon Burlesque by Holly Madison take center stage and a live band and featured jazz vocalist round out the entertainment. Land custom barrel-aged whiskey and hand-rolled cigars from around the world at this speakeasy.
