If you really want to see what the tour guides who whisper-talk into their microphones refer to as “Old Vegas,” make your way to Fremont Street and the El Cortez Hotel and Casino will come into view. Head inside and navigate around the slot machines to find Siegel’s 1941 - one of our favorite places to stumble into after a long night of collecting plastic necklaces. The overnight menu has everything from corned beef hash and eggs to a Reuben and a burger with bacon named after Bugsy Siegel, one of the original owners of the hotel. There’s also a plate of chicken and waffles that is almost guaranteed to turn you into a mouth-breather slumped in one of their big red booths.

Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips
The fish at Gordon Ramsay Fish and Chips in the Linq Hotel is great, but you’re really there for the chips which you can get covered in chorizo.
Red 8 Asian Bistro
This beautiful, very red Chinese restaurant in The Wynn is actually casual and comfortable so it works before a show or late night.
The reverse Happy Hour at Izakaya Go in Chinatown is an amazing deal, but their menu of Japanese small plates is already super reasonably priced.
