Venice has the Venetian.

Ancient Rome has Caesars.

Paris has... Paris.

And now China gets the Lucky Dragon Hotel & Casino.

It’s the first Chinese-inspired casino on the Strip, and it’s ready to ply you with ample dim sum, pork belly bao and gambling opportunities around the clock.

But first, we thought you should know a few things...

It has a 1,300-square-foot penthouse suite.
Expect a soaking tub, butler service and panoramic views of the city. Which is par for the course, penthouse-suite-wise.

Gambling happens.
Sure, you’ve got your typical blackjack and roulette. But the focus of the 27,000-square-foot casino is the high-end lounges and Asia-preferred games like baccarat and pai gow. So it’s like gambling in Macau, minus being really, ridiculously far away.

Vegas’s only tea sommelier works here.
FYI.

There’s no shortage of unbelievably good food.
For fine dining, there’s Pearl Ocean, with its own live seafood room. For the bold palate, there’s Phoenix, an intimate adventure in deer tendon and other delicacies. And for a snack, there’s Bao Now, which makes pork belly and braised beef bao 24 hours a day.

Oh, and about that two-and-a-half-story glass dragon in the lobby...
That’s what slideshows are for.

Sam Eichner likes literature, reality television and his twin cats equally. He has consistently been told he needs a shave since he started growing facial hair.
