Because Luxor is so diverse, from its staff to its venues, hearing only one “voice” on this blog would be an inaccurate portral of Luxor. So, I plan to work with employees and various departments to get as many different voices and Guest Posts as possible. Below is one from Kussette who works at Liquidity, the center bar at Luxor.
 
****************************************************************************************************************
 
Luxor was known for its Egyptian theme, hieroglyphics on the wall, mummies, pharaoh, sphinx, obelisk, RA, Nile and Nefertiti’s. Now, those were things of the past. The Luxor is reborn. There is a whole new different experience from what was ancient. We’re now more living in the present with a more lively and provocative atmosphere in the center bar, Liquidity and restaurant and nightclubs like LAX and CatHouse. We got the perfect hang out to talk and meet new people in Aurora– lobby bar. Why not try some refreshing cocktails on your first landing to Vegas. I recommend the Liquid Lemonade as one of the most refreshing cocktails invented. How about something different like a Strawberry Caprioskasfor the sweet tooth drinker or the popular signature drink Aurora which is fresh blueberries martini. It would be best to have it on Thurs-Mon from 8pm-6am. Don’t ask why, just take my word on it 😉

Not to mention, Flight, the best hang out while waiting for flights departure in LAS airport or to go to LAX nightclub on Wed, Thurs, Fri or Sat. One should definitely try the flights such as the First Class Whiskey or First Class Tequila. You’ll be paying much less to try ultra premium spirits in this bar than any other bar ever. Such as Patron Platinum and Crown XR plus it comes with the most creative garnishes ever like beef jerky for whiskeys and butterscotch candies for apple martinis. You name it they have the most eclectic menu out there.

In Liquidity, which is the center bar of it all, you can taste the slow dripping Absinthe.

Lastly, Criss Angel or Carrot Top might be the next person you see hanging out in one of the lounge or nightclubs mentioned. There is more to come at Luxor, like escalators, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition and BODIES… The Exhibition and a whole bunch more for the ecstatic, energetic and full spirit crowd.

For the first week it opened, I saw CRISS ANGEL Believe every night. Some thought I was crazy, others were jealous. But, I really enjoyed watching the show change, evolve and how each audience reacted differently.

If you didn’t realize it, CRISS ANGEL Believe is currently in a “Preview Period”. Before most shows open, they travel around and perform on smaller stages before debuting on Broadway, etc. But, Cirque du Soleil performances don’t do that; they open on the stage they’ll perform on forever. Because of this, there’s usually a five week Preview Period before the show “officially” opens. During this time, the audience helps the cast and crew refine their timing, understand what the audience likes and dislikes and how they will react.

By seeing the show every night for a week, I could really see some of the show’s evolution. It also gave me a chance to pick my favorite part; although, I’m a little torn. I LOVE the stage, the music and the costumes (especially those for the rabbits). In fact, I like the music so much that I started listening to it at work. And the costumes? Well, they’re just cool, especially because every rabbit has a completely different one; almost like they’re people, with totally different personalities. What about the stage you wonder? Well, that will have to wait for another post… I haven’t figured out a way to describe it while still doing it justice. However, those aren’t really scenes, just pieces. I guess you’ll have to wait until a future post to learn my favorite scene 🙂

In the meantime, below are links to a few recent reviews:
