The Country Club at Wynn, upmarket and elegant with views overlooking the Wynn's plush golf course, has a unique jazz brunch every Sunday. A single charge covers all your food, and you can choose from the vast buffet and order as many dishes as you like from a set menu. There is a seafood focus, with fresh oysters and king crab legs at the center of the buffet, as well as steak and more traditional breakfast items. As its name suggests, the food is accompanied by live jazz music.

Hash House A Go Go is a restaurant chain originating in San Diego, but its signature branch is now located in the heart of Las Vegas. Its brunch is distinguished by two things: the enormous portions and their crazily playful presentation. Whatever you order from the menu will turn up looking nothing like you expected, but it will be seriously tasty.

An outpost of Parisian cuisine in the center of Las Vegas, Bouchon is without a doubt the best bakery in Las Vegas. Its patisserie is renowned far and wide, and if you fancy a light brunch, a croissant and coffee in the cafe’s suave surroundings inside The Venetian is hard to beat.

Verandah, Las Vegas – photo by gourmet-chick
As one would expect from the Four Seasons Hotel, the Verandah is nice. Very nice. An Italian restaurant with a beautiful garden terrace that overlooks a private swimming pool, the Verandah’s all-you-can-eat brunch is utterly sublime. The restaurant also serves one of the top afternoon teas in Las Vegas, which is ideal for late risers.

The Sterling Brunch is dining at its very finest. All the food is immaculately presented, from the hand-carved beef tenderloin to the raw seafood bar. If piling your plate with lobster, filet mignon, and Sturgeon caviar then washing it all down with champagne sounds like heaven, head to the Sterling Brunch, you won’t be disappointed.
