Located Downtown in a buzzy, bi-level space, Therapy is a great place to bring a group. Plates like chicken and red velvet waffle sliders, crispy fried pig ears, and oxtail empanadas pair well with an extensive cocktail list, and, oh, house-made sangria.

Located inside Westgate Resort and Casino, Edge Steakhouse fuels carnivore fantasies with prime steaks, Snake River Farm Wagyu beef, and fresh fish.

6. Other Mama 3655 S Durango Dr Ste 6, Las Vegas, NV 89147

Other Mama should be all the reason you need to head to Spring Valley, where this homey spot is serving an Asian-inspired menu of seafood specialties like sushi, ceviche, and oysters, plus inventive libations with house-infused spirits. Cool and casual without the frenzy of Downtown, it offers creations like a sashimi salad with thyme and honey, and a scallop carpaccio with blood orange and fennel. While the dishes are fresh and edgy, the cocktails are named after what could be your grandmother's closest group of friends, such as Shelby (bourbon, lemon, maple gastrique, mint), Ingrid (vodka, triple sec, strawberry balsamic shrub, cava), and Bea (cachaca, Drambuie, grapefruit, Aleppo-honey syrup, grapefruit bitters).

10. VegeNation 616 E Carson Ave Ste 120, Las Vegas, NV 89101 (Downtown)

Two core values are at the heart of VegeNation: 100% plant-based ingredients, and a big interest in the local community of Las Vegas. This vegan eatery tries to source as much as possible from the surrounding desert environs -- the interior of the restaurant is flush with vibrant fauna, décor which doubles as an actual herb garden used by the kitchen. The menu is influenced by nondenominational street food, boasting standout dishes like the “Save the Tuna” mock sushi and the “Muchos Gracias,” a sweet potato quesadilla with savory chipotle crema. Combined with the list of craft beers from Sin City breweries and a regular line-up of live music, it's a Downtown destination.
