You know that feeling when you want to go out, but you’re not in the mood for mega clubs and/or packed party pools? Rendezvous, the M Resort’s Saturday-night party at DayDream, is now under way, providing a chill, stress-free sabbatical from the Strip when the Weekly stopped by July 3.
“There is no pressure on dress code, the crowd is good, the space is cool and it’s super local-friendly,” says DayDream/Angel Management Group’s Michael Fuller. “We even got it to where you can swim if you want to,” he adds. Each week reflects a different “A Night in …” theme, such as Havana or Rio. Plus it’s also Ladies night, so gals, get ready for a hosted bar (and guys, bring your best pick-up lines). Doors at 10 p.m., free for locals.
At M Resort, locals reign supreme. Anthony Marnell III opened this casino with value in mind. With affordable drinks and meals and lots of incentives to play, it's no wonder why M has been a hit since it opened its doors in March 2009.
The property is decorated with dark wood, rich colors and amber-like light fixtures. Gaming offerings include more than 1,800 slot machines and 60 table games, as well as a poker room and race and sports book.
The resort houses 390 guest rooms, including 39 luxury suites. Designed with a modern and contemporary feel, M’s rooms feature dark wood, chrome fixtures and white linens, and are accented by blue or burgundy throws and pillows. Rooms boast floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the mountains or the Strip.
M dining options include Studio B, a show kitchen buffet; "twisted farm food" at Hash House a Go Go; Baby Cakes bakery; Anthony’s Burgers & Brews, serving gourmet burgers and fries; Vig Deli; Anthony’s Prime Steak & Seafood; Marinelli’s Authentic Italian Dishes; and the Hostile Grape Wine Cellar, where guests can taste more than 160 types of wine. Plus, 32° Draft has one of the largest beer selections in the valley, with 96 different beers on tap.
The four-star awarded, 23,000-square-foot Spa Mio offers a variety of treatments and services with saunas, Jacuzzis, 16 massage and facial rooms and a full-service salon and barbershop complete with built-in ESPN in the mirrors. Locals also receive 25 percent off all regular price services.
DayDream Pool Club heads up M's adult pool party scene offering the only locals pool party in the Valley.
