Just about every city these days has discovered the art of reinventing itself. None can equal Las Vegas, an act of improbable invention from the start, whipped up like a louche playboy’s mirage in the middle of a desert wasteland. Lately, though, the scrappy showgirl’s  plumes have wilted, the gaming-table revenues have plummeted, and the city’s high-stakes investors have realized that it’s time they tapped into a fresher, 21st-century brand of decadence. So like the die-hard gambler it has always been, Vegas is launching new versions of its feckless, anything-goes self, updating its sinner’s playbook to lure the hangover boys, the Kardashian girls, the flush Brazilians, and even a few chic hipsters. How does the reimagined Vegas roll? We consider three new-fangled alter-egos: 

The Hedonist's Vegas

The Gastronome's Vegas

The Hipsterati's Vegas
