Porn stars love Las Vegas. We took a trip around the convention floor at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo at the Hard Rock Hotel to find out where these Vegas visitors like to stay, eat, drink, relax and party.

“I eat at all the restaurants and bars here at the Hard Rock. I don’t even go outside (laughs). I love Nobu. I get not the Wagyu beef but the raw beef. Have you ever had that? It’s above grade A, so you can eat it completely raw. That’s the first place I’ve ever had it, and Nobu is one of the only places in the U.S. that can have it. They get it straight from Japan, where they massage their cows and sing to them every night (laughs).”

“I’ve been coming here for the last five years. I like the Palms; that would probably be my No. 1 place, and the Silverton hotel and casino is pretty nice. I like that Southern look; it’s a good change. I’ve seen the shows and stuff like that, but I like going out to Red Rock [Canyon]. I’m more into nature and hiking than clubs and stuff like that.”

“I really like either the MGM Signature or the Bellagio. It’s all about comfort. I generally eat here at the Hard Rock at Pink Taco or there’s a new pizza place that’s really good [Pizza Forte]. I really, really like the Cirque du Soleil shows—I’ve seen Love and , and I’m seeing Mystère this time. I really want to see the Pinball Hall of Fame, too.”

“I’ve been coming to this forever—20 years. I was only this big when I started coming here (laughs). It’s always wherever everyone is, wherever I’m meeting my friends. My favorite show is Blue Man Group; it’s just such a unique thing, and you go thinking this is going to be fun for about five minutes but it’s entertaining throughout the whole thing. When I come to Vegas when I’m not working or going to a casino, I’m at Lake Mead with my dog.”

“I always stay at the Hard Rock, since it’s where most of this stuff is and I can hop back up to my room. I’m looking forward to the White Party at Vanity. It’s really pretty looking in there. Culinary Dropout is definitely my favorite place to eat in the Hard Rock; everything is so yummy. And Mr. Lucky’s is the best place for breakfast.”

“I stay at Hard Rock or Cosmo or SLS. I love having dim sum for breakfast at KJ Dim Sum at the Rio. Last night I just tried STK at Cosmo, and that’s pretty good, too. It’s more like a party than a restaurant. For clubs, I like Marquee and Hakkasan, and this year I’m going to Little Darlings.”

“I live here, been here since ’06. It definitely feels like the vibe is back. For a little while it seemed like everything was shutting down, but the economy is really kicking back up, and I know my house value is going up. I don’t stay too much in my neighborhood. There’s so much in the whole city; I don’t want to be limited. My very favorite place is on the Strip—Robuchon. I like to see the butter cart. I want the whole deal. The last time I went there was two weeks after my birthday, and they gave me a cake. It was adorable.”
