Following the success of its innovative gourmet culinary walking tours through Las Vegas’ revitalised downtown and along its desirable strip, Lip Smacking Foodie Tours has introduced a brand new itinerary to its roster – the eclectic ‘Arts District Lip Smacking Tour’.
On this tour, attendees explore one of the city’s most spirited and colourful neighbourhoods—home to a slew of talented artists and artisans. Here, the popular ‘First Friday’ arts and cultural festival entices nearly 15,000 people on the first Friday of each month to stroll and admire one-of-a-kind local art. Spunk and creativity abound along the 18 blocks encompassing the Arts District, with a lively mix of independent businesses including vintage clothing boutiques, antique stores, theatres, art galleries, bars and restaurants.
On this tour, guests will get a taste of the best the Arts District has to offer as they meet some of its most distinctive chefs. The first stop is Esther’s Kitchen, where the seasonal Italian cuisine is served on handmade tableware fashioned at a pottery studio just steps away from the restaurant. Chef James Trees, a Las Vegas native, has worked under such culinary luminaries as Gordon Ramsay, Eric Ripert, Ray Garcia and Michael Mina.
