6. Hyde Bellagio 3600 Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109

A legendary Vegas nightclub, Hyde Bellagio is on the cozier side at 10,000sqft, so unless you have a table, things are going to be intimate on the dance floor, where you can get down to a solid mix of top-40 hits, EDM, and hip-hop. The open-air view of the famous Bellagio fountains makes up for the smaller space, and regular costume parties with themed outfits and champagne showers step up the club's game, too. You can expect DJs ranging from Lil Jon to Brody Jenner, as well as multiple bottle-service packages. Come earlier in the night and it'll feel more like a lounge than a club, if that's the scene you're craving.

7. Park on Fremont 506 East Fremont, Las Vegas, NV 89101

This hip little eatery on Fremont boats great cocktails, sharable plates, and eclectic decor, all meant to convey a vibe of friendly unpretentiousness. To that end, the food is made of bar favorites like wings and corn dogs, or signature dishes like the chicken and waffle sandwich or the Philly mac and cheese—messy comfort foods meant to bring people together. The back patio of this place is where the action is, with 2,5000sqft of space, a seesaw, and salvaged metal art galore. Cocktails like the Stranger Danger and the Trophy Wife display their sense of humor, while packing a serious wallop at the same time. This place is pretty popular, but easy enough to walk in and find a seat.

8. Pub 1842 3799 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109

This gastropub located in the MGM Grand serves rare whiskeys, a great beer selection, and pub food like nachos, lobster bakes, and a famed Peanut Butter Crunch burger with thick smears of actual peanut butter. And while casual is the go-to sensibility here, fine dining veteran Michael Mina makes the concept even more enticing with ping pong and darts in the bar area.

9. Rockhouse 3535 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109

Rockhouse is an adult's playground, set right on the Strip in the middle of America's least responsible city: Vegas. 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."
