Best of Vegas is a 2011 live album by an American singer, Frank Sinatra that contains 17 live tracks from the 2006 box set, "Sinatra: Vegas".

In the span of a few years, Las Vegas refueled Frank Sinatra's career and Sinatra in turn became the lead figure in the city's ascendance. It was a synergistic relationship that has since become legendary in the annals of 20th century entertainment.

All the Sinatra classics are here, performed live before adoring crowds at some of the most prestigious venues in the history of Vegas. "The Lady Is a Tramp", "I've Got You Under My Skin", "All or Nothing at All", "Pennies from Heaven" and of course, the "Theme From New York, New York" are just some of the gems in the Best of Vegas collection.
