Over the past 10 years, Aussie exports Human Nature have performed an incredible 1770 shows in Las Vegas. So who better to give recommendations on the best things to see and places to eat? Andrew Tierney shares his favourite spots.

I’d send first-time visitors to…

The Strip. It's the most surreal and impressive part of Las Vegas. It's larger than life, it's hectic and it's over the top in an amazing way. The best restaurants in the world are here, the most amazing nightclubs and casinos and now some of the most famous artists in the world are performing.

The best hidden gem is…

Lake Mead, Las Vegas

Lake Mead. It's the lake made by the Hoover Dam so in summer you can take pontoon boats out onto it. It's about 35 minutes from The Strip and the water is crystal clear. You can have picnics and dock on the side of the lake. It's one of the coolest things people wouldn't think to do in Vegas.

The best restaurant is…

Honey Salt, off The Strip. They do amazing American cuisine – I’m always partial to a great burger. The SW Steakhouse at the Wynn is a little more high-end; I took my wife there on her birthday.

When I want breakfast, I visit…

America does eggs really well and I love places like Omelet House and Egg Works. They’re family friendly and pride themselves on great omelettes.

For good coffee…

A little place in suburban Las Vegas called Bad Owl Coffee. They’ve taken inspiration from Harry Potter for the styling and menu. There’s a dish called Flight of the Hippogriff that’s a little wooden palette with four different shots of espresso mixed with different milks and flavours.

When you’re on holiday with kids….

Excalibur Casino, Las Vegas

My little girl is obsessed with one casino on The Strip because it looks like a princess tower [Excalibur Hotel & Casino] and the Luxor, which looks like a pyramid. There’s Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay and a lion habitat at The Mirage and it’s amazing to see these animals up close.

Human Nature’s residency show, Human Nature Jukebox, is on at The Venetian Resort. Tickets are available now for Human Nature’s next Australian tour, Little More Love: A 30-Year Celebration.
