Wynn win

(That's Shanghai)

Wynn winBillionaire Steve Wynn is nothing if not extravagant. His new Las Vegas property, modestly titled Wynn Las Vegas, boasts numerous rooms, bars and restaurants, where well-heeled gamblers can bet in luxury.

Shanghai's Wynn Win, however, will appeal to those with higher taste. The sleek, all-white interior, minimalist furniture and clever use of space create an artful environment, and we don't mean kitsch. Even the menus, designed to resemble hardbound college notebooks, offer a heady lesson -that is, if one is studying mixology. Our Wynn Win Martini (RMB 98) was textbook perfect, made with a strong, satisfying base of Grey Goose Vodka. Only the music was tasteless, played loud and hard, with a driving robotic dance beat.

Still, the majority of fashionistas and wealthy Chinese businessmen in attendance seemed to be enjoying the experience, one we hesitate to call "win-win".
