Marrakech Moroccan Restaurant

3900 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89169

"Truly a unique experience. A rich, sensual environment reveals itself inside. The belly dancers add a charm perfectly paired with the dishes, which by the way, you eat with your fingers."


Fleur De Lys @ Mandalay Bay

"This is one of the most romantic spots in town. But be sure to go the extra mile. Make it special by reserving a cabana so you can pull back the curtain for a super private meal."
