Many people look forward to spending a night or two in Las Vegas in the US state of Nevada during a holiday. And it’s the night-time that is the right time to go out and enjoy yourself. The best plan for your stay is to rest during the day – it can be hot and humid outdoors in the daytime anyway – so you can break loose after the sun sets. You will never run out of options when it comes to Vegas nights. You can enjoy the best games but spend less in a casino or simply have a romantic evening with your partner!

Where to eat out 

If you want a fancy meal, then you can head up to one of the many fancy restaurants in Vegas. Some of the most popular ones are:

  • Atomic Liquors & The Kitchen at Atomic: If you want some excellent alcohol options, then you can head to these patios. Try something from their menu of cocktails and then feast on Justin Kingsley Hall’s food.
  • Americana: Chef Stephen Blandino created this lakeside restaurant and it serves some of the most amazing food.
  • Beerhaus: If beer is your life, then you must visit this beerhall. It has live music and hot dogs happy hours. Need we say more?
  • Herringbone: If you want a more isolated and peaceful outdoor space, then you cannot go wrong with the Strip, which is Herringbone’s beautiful patio.
  • Carson Kitchen: Launched by the late Kerry Simon, the restaurant has a rooftop patio that exudes metropolitan charm.
