Eating / Drinking, Las Vegas
When I heard this place was coming to town I really got my hopes up because I knew their beer was great and the building would be pretty swank and include patio seating. Problem is they put it in the middle of the hi dollar financial/ real estate baron area of time and this results in a collosal meat market arena of Roman proportions. There are more open silk shirts and beev-shot skirts here on a given night than just about anywhere in the lower 48. If you enjoy good beer and people-watching as Ferrari driving midlife crisis types are trolling fiercely for painted up gold diggers, then this place is for you!
Dress Code: As skanky and Armani'd out as you can get. But there are also plenty of fannypack tourist types and underdressed local slobs like me there too.
Hookah Lounge This is a great place to hang out after dinner, have a drink sitting on the middle eastern style pillows and sucking on a tasty Hookah pipe (communal) with your friends or potential score. I recommend the grape or peach flavors. And remember, don't inhale- you never know when you may have to testify in Congress. Good music also and they stay open late. The lounge is also connected to Paymon's Mediterranean Cafe which is also a really great off-the-strip restaurant.
Start drinking at your hotel or in your room if you are planning for a long night of drinking. This can cut down on the costs of spending a fortune at the bars or clubs!
La Playa is a tropical themed place where they serve what we refer to in Miami as "tourist drinks"- those fruity pina colada-esque concoctions in a tall glass with an umbrella stuck in it.
Very un-Vegas... meaning way cooler than your average tourist fare. This is a late night mecca for locals working the late shift.
