4. 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.

5. Lagasse's Stadium 3325 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

It’s appropriate that this spot is called a “stadium,” because the space is so massive that it exceeds a typical sports bar: the 24,000 square ft., bi-level dome boasts over 100 flat screen TVs and a sleek, modern interior. And these aren’t your average bar bites either, considering it’s Emeril Lagasse behind the menu. Expect elevated takes on pub staples, from small fare like chili cheese fries with homemade beef and bean chili, as well as heavy-hitting standouts like the Creole Burger, a nod to the chef’s Louisiana roots with Andouille sausage, garlic mayo, three chili pepper gouda, and caramelized onions.

6. Rockhouse 3535 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

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."

8. B&B Burger & Beer 3355 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

Chef Mario Batali continues his dominance of the Venetian and Palazzo by going casual with this burger- and beer-centric eatery.

For a Vegas-unique burger experience, order the Really Good, a carnivorous combinatio, of heritage bacon, gorgonzola, chianti mustard, all on a dense potato bun.

Deep within the air-conditioned annals of the Venetian Casino, this polished gastropub boasts a list of over 200 types of craft beers, as well as a robust offering of American and Canadian whiskeys (not to mention single malt scotch, with Japanese selections to boot). It’s probably where Ron Swanson would hangout if dragged to Sin City: the menu here is fairly meat-forward, with regulars raving about poutine with duck confit (pro tip: opt to add the fried egg) and heavy-hitters like the porter-braised short rib with carrot mousseline and IPA-battered onion rings.

Make sure to save room for one of their boozy shakes like the Coconut Rasberry Vegan, which, loaded with Skyy vodka, coconut sorbet, coconut vodka, and marshmallow, is likely richer than the entree itself.

21. Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub 3708 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

No Vegas club handles the day-to-night transition quite like Marquee. The premiere spot at The Cosmopolitan is notorious for its dayclub, an exclusive adult oasis you’ll likely recognize for its crystal blue swimming pool with bikini-decked bodies packed like sardines. After guests have successfully dehydrated themselves in the daylight hours (thanks to both sun and cocktails), they can celebrate round two at Marquee’s nightclub, where international house music DJs have year-round residencies. If EDM isn’t your thing, snag a seat in The Library, an elite drinking lounge complete with leather armchairs and pool tables.

22. Hyde Bellagio 3600 Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

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.

23. Surrender 3121 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (Strip)

You'll want to dress to impress at this lavish after-hours club at the Wynn Resort, where you can hit the 5,000sqft dance floor for guest appearances from DJs like Diplo and Will.I.Am. It usually gets pretty packed in front of the DJ booth, so if you're looking for some air, head to the spacious pool area behind it, which has become the real draw at Surrender anyway. There's plenty of room underneath the tall palm trees there (and at the extra bar areas and gaming tables) to get as far away from the pounding music as you like and kick back with friends and cocktails.

Finish around 10pm and you can head straight over to the nightclub for a live DJ set and an endless cocktail selection.
