Just a dice's throw from the bustle of the casino floor, the tuxedoed maitre d' of Bally's Steakhouse invites patrons inside a New England–style dining room grounded by dark woods and Ralph Lauren linens. The menu boasts a trio of prix fixe dinners and à la carte entrees prepared by nationally renowned chefs, who center their feasts on the restaurant's specialty meats. Diners can tear morsels from bone-in selections, such as 22-ounce rib eyes or 16-ounce fillets, or cut right through slabs of Alaskan halibut. As one of the oldest steak houses on the Strip, Bally's maintains the tradition of ending each multicourse meal with full coffee service and a slideshow on the history of the after-dinner mint.
X Burlesque University's professional burlesque dancers elucidate the seductive art of burlesque dancing, teaching the same techniques and choreography that grace the stage at X Burlesque, a nightly tantalizing revue at the Flamingo Las Vegas. The 75-minute tutorial breaks down the provocative stage moves that came into fashion after a century of staid Victorian dancing, which required promenading couples to carry a rabid porcupine between them at all times. In addition to shimmying tutelage, students receive a showgirl makeup lesson, in which they learn to highlight radiant smiles and mysterious smoky eyes with a complimentary makeup kit. After mastering seductive poses and steamy kicks, students receive a professional souvenir photo and an official XBU diploma, which can be proudly displayed or repurposed into DIY pasties.

Inspired by the surfers and psychedelic rockers of California in the ’80s, brothers Custo and David Dalmau launched Custo Barcelona, a fashion label known for its fun, colorful tops and graphic prints. Their bold color combinations and even bolder patterns stamp everything from low-neck T-shirts and summer dresses to short jackets and jersey sweaters. The label’s popularity has allowed the brothers to expand from their native Spain and open stores across the world and even space.
To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, “She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.”
Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand’s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.
It was 1978. A college dropout and a failed medical-school applicant had just brought together their combined life savings to rent an old gas station. Their plan was to resurrect the empty station and open their own restaurant. Their specialty—ice cream. So begins the story of legendary entrepreneurs Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, who are better known across the globe as Ben & Jerry. Their small, old-fashioned ice-cream parlor eventually became a Burlington, Vermont, favorite, and before long, shops popped up all over the United States and in 25 other countries. Their brand easily attracted customers—homemade ice cream churned from wholesome, natural ingredients and blended into creative flavors. Some of their popular scoops include Cherry Garcia, Chunky Monkey, and Coffee Caramel Buzz. Since infusing their first rich and creamy batches of ice cream with natural chunks of fruit, nuts, candies, and cookies, Ben & Jerry's has also operated with a commitment to improve the quality of life locally, nationally, and internationally. The company practices sustainable food production and business practices that respect the earth and environment. Ben & Jerry’s cartons are made from FSC-certified paper, which comes from forests that are managed for the protection of wildlife, and waste from its plants generates energy to power farms. The company works tirelessly to reduce its carbon emissions; it strongly encourages customers to eat their ice cream in the darkest dark.
