Set inside of the Green Valley Ranch Hotel, Hank's Fine Steaks is just 10 minutes off the Strip and one of Vegas's best steakhouses. The award-winning restaurant has a classic steakhouse menu with a wide selection of wet- and dry-aged cuts ranging from the 8oz filet mignon to a 42oz T-Bone (for sharing, of course), but their signature dish is the decadent Chateuabriand steak with seasonal vegetables. The atmosphere inside is sleek and elegant, with soft lighting, modern booths, and a long bar. Hank's is also known for their martinis and their happy hours, which make them a real favorite of the locals.

2. Sushi Roku 3500 S Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

Owned by the same crew as LA's Sushi Roku, this Vegas cousin serves up the same quality Japanese cuisine with the added bonus of being located right on the Strip at The Forum Shops At Caesars.

3. The Golden Tiki 3939 Spring Mountain, Las Vegas, NV 89102 (Off Strip)

This slightly kitschy, rum-obsessed tiki bar located in the heart of Vegas's Chinatown has a modern take on the tiki tradition with new twists on old cocktails. The ridiculously strong drinks come in a variety of colors and novelty cups, but the bar is most known for it's table-side Martinique Ti service, which brings the mixology to you for an individualized rum cocktail. They also offer VIP drinks in treasure chests, barrel-aged cocktails, and freshly-infused liquors made right at the bar.

4. FIZZ 3570 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109

This ultra-luxe cocktail bar has all the glitz, glamour, and celebrity sightings you could want in a Las Vegas nightspot. The champagne-focused bar (hence the name) has David Furnish as its Creative Director, and he and his husband (Sir Elton John) have made this lounge into a chandelier-strewn, gold-drenched, leather couch-filled shrine to their aesthetic tastes. The walls are hung with pieces from their personal art collection, and the cocktails on offer are sweet and strong. The bar's signature drink, the FIZZ Deluxe, is a testament to the theme of overindulgence: it's a $2,500 drink made with champagen, Grand Marnier, and Hennessy and topped with 24k gold flakes.

5. Herbs & Rye 3713 W Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89102 (Off Strip)

This steak-and-cocktails focused restaurant is a sophisticated and romantic spot that attracts both liquor nerds and happy hour hounds. Cocktail lovers gravitate towards the lengthy drinks menu, which reads like a timeline of mixology's greatest hits, from the "Original Collins" of the Gothic Age (1776-1865) through the "Harvey Wallbanger" of the Rat Pack Era (1950-1968) and the bartender's choice of the modern revival (1995-present). Others love this place for their half-off steaks promotion during happy hour, which runs both in the afternoon and late night. The dark, leather-covered furniture and vintage wooden furnishings make this place an inviting throwback to the alluring atmosphere of old Vegas, so it's popularity is unsurprising—make reservations.

9. The Griffin 511 Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV 89101 (Downtown)

Calmer and more laid back than most of the party-focused bars in Vegas, The Griffin concentrates on serving up cold beer, great cocktails, and live music. The dark, cool bar is an escape from the desert heat of the city, with low lights and comfy booths for serious lounging. The selections of beer on tap and music in the jukebox are always changing, but they're both always fresh and hip. Two working fireplaces increase the coziness factor during the winter, and the back room features DJs and all night dancing all year round. It gets busy in here, especially during weekends and late nights, but this local's hangout is definitely worth checking out.

With 9000sqft of space, this warehouse-sized venue has three bars, 83 TVs, pool tables, beer-pong tables, tire swings, and a mechanical bull. This place was clearly expensive to build, but they're not pretentious at the Rockhouse—the overall vibe here is of a Southern dive bar, from the weathered wood to the industrial lighting. Their food is cooked to match, as this self-described "ultra dive bar" churns out a steady stream of bar food classics like sliders, wings, and hot dogs. A menu of inventive and boozy cocktails is also available, patronizingly divided between "girly drinks" and "manly drinks."

16. PT's Pub 532 E Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89104

This local chain has nearly 50 locations in Nevada alone (including those under the Sierra Gold and Sean Patrick’s monikers), so you have plenty of locations to choose from, and the formula behind this successful chain is well-tested. This location is a sports bar, with all that entails: a long bar serving beer and strong cocktails, lots of TVs everywhere, and a kitchen churning out sports fan favorites like pizzas, burgers, wings, and sliders. Not a fancy place by any means, this is a venue for large groups to congregate over a sports game with free-flowing beer. Happy hour specials run everyday, bringing their already reasonable prices way down and giving locals an excuse to stop in for cheap beer and appetizers.

25. Cabo Wabo Cantina 3663 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

This combination booze-shack and live music venue is the 2nd stateside outpost of the franchise that somehow combined Cabo San Lucas sleepy-town laid-back attitude with Vegas' live-fast-die-young one. The result: a mid-Strip joint with grass awnings, full Mexican lunch and dinner menus and a whole lot of tequila. Any spot on the Strip is sure to be crowded at any time, but the wait to get on the patio is worth it to chow down on damn-near-perfect guacamole, idly drink a massive margarita and watch as drunken tourists and Vegas' eccentric crowd stumble past below.
