So how happy am I at the moment. I've managed to score a work trip to Vegas for a conference at the end of January! I'm currently based in Australia so to make it out to the US (with someone else paying) is freakin' great! Now, I've got two questions that you may be able to help me out with: 1. I've got a 5.5 hour stopover in LAX on the way over. I get in at 9:45am and leave for Vegas at 3:10pm. I don't really want to hang around the airport for all that time so is there anywhere I can easily get to and hang out for a couple of hours? I'm not really fussed what I see, it would just be good to stretch my legs and grab some lunch and maybe see some sights after the 13.5 hour flight from Oz! I'd need to be back at LAX terminal 4 by 2:30pm at the latest. 2. Vegas nightlife recommendations. Okay, now I know there's a whole load of nightlife going on out there but I could do with some help narrowing down the options. I like bars with good music (hip-hop, jazz, funk, lounge) and a crowd that isn't too wrapped up in themselves. A couple of nightclub recommendations plus maybe the names of a couple of the seedier bars would be great. I'm not fussed about seeing any scenery out there, just the Vegas nightlife. Any tips appreciated!
