The 100 Coolest Places of the Complex Decade

2. The Palms Casino & Resort

City: Las Vegas
Address: 4321 West Flamingo Rd.
Website: palms.com

Situated near the Vegas strip, the Palms is popular culture's favorite resort. MTV loves it—members of MTV's original Real World: Las Vegas cast stayed here in 2002, prompting the creation of a "Real World Suite." The MTV Video Music Awards were held here in 2007, and MTV Spring Break was filmed here last March, featuring artists like Snoop, Wiz Khalifa, and Lupe Fiasco. The Palms has been renovated twice over the past decade, and in 2005, the "Fantasy Tower" was added for an astonishing $600 million. Presumably, Drake helped pay off whatever debt this might have incurred, as he's spent "everything he came with" here, at least on one occasion.
