Sports Pit @ Harrah's
By importing gaming tables into their sportsbook, Harrah's has effectively replaced mummified, pony-playing degenerates with younger, card-playing ones. The lounge seating offers 40 HDTVs and access to smoked brisket and rotisserie chicken from Pepper Rose BBQ, and the whole area (bar included) stays open after the games -- so you can drown your sorrow that Daddy's Little Girl killed your straight six and none of the Ace-splitting kids seem to care.

Diablo's Cantina @ Monte Carlo Resort & Casino
With the downstairs open to the Strip, DC offers live music, a full Mexican menu augmented by Diablo's Death Wings, and over 75 tequilas. Upstairs, the open-air playpen is patrolled by its bemasked Mexican-wrestling mascot Moose-O-Libre and roving shot señoritas -- who'll infuriate you, until you realize propina means "tip", and has nothing to do with your hairline.

Sporting a castle theme throughout, the former Ra space offers a 25-person dance floor overlooking VIP lofts, and a Eurotrash-approved sound system that's purportedly the first of its kind in the States. As resident DJ AM cuts from "Apache" to "Word Up", every kid hoisted on a chair and prematurely declared a man will grow insanely jealous.
