Just when you thought the Las Vegas Strip couldn't get any more dazzling, think again.
An outdoor retail, dining and entertainment plaza, The LINQ offers several different experiences all in one place at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.
The focal point is the High Roller, a 550-foot observation wheel -- the tallest in the world -- offering 360 degree views of the Las Vegas valley. Talk about being in the center of all the action!
This high-energy marketplace offers approximately 40 shops and restaurants in a 200,000-square-foot area. Restaurants and nightlife includes: O'Shea's Casino, Chayo Cocina, The Haute Doggery hot dog shop, Purple Zebra, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Starbucks, Ghiradelli, Yard House, Tilted Kilt, F.A.M.E. and Flour & Barley. Shops include The Polaroid Museum, Koto, Bella Scarpa, 12A.M. Run, Chilli Beans, Goorin Bros., Kitson and Ruby Blue.
The LINQ also features Brooklyn Bowl, a music venue that holds a capacity of 2,000-plus concert goers. Brooklyn Bowl has a restaurant, 32 bowling lanes, a section to watch sports during the day, nightly live performances and a nightclub area.
If you're staying on the Strip, The LINQ's convenient location is close to many hotels. Guests inside the Flamingo or Quad hotels can walk right out into The LINQ. Even if you're just walking along the Strip, The LINQ offers easy pedestrian access -- you won't have to go out of your way to pay a visit.
A back porte cochere with valet parking accommodates those who want to avoid the Strip altogether.
