Gambit is a new joint in Henderson that allows guests to choose their own adventure. The Bank is the main lounge with video poker and an outdoor patio while Gatsby's Supper Club is a sit-down dining room with a stage for live music. The menu features steaks, seafood, and flatbreads. Yet the best place for cocktails is 33, a tequila and mezcal speakeasy hidden in the back. It's an intimate, but stylish space with a touch of Dia de los Muertos-inspired decor. The collection of agave spirits (and a few welcome surprises like Sierra Norte Mexican Whiskey and Camazotz Oaxacan Rum) can be sipped on their own or used in a choice of expertly prepared cocktails, including a modified negroni or smoky paloma. A flight of any three tequilas is $30.
How to get in: The 33 speakeasy is behind a sliding mirror wall to the left of the main entrance. You'll see people walking in and out, but don't hesitate to ask for help.
Henderson has plenty of slot parlors, but a short supply of cocktail lounges. That's changed with the recent opening of Gambit, which is actually three concepts in four different rooms. The Bank is the signature cocktail lounge with loaded fries, ahi tartare, and other small bites. Meanwhile, Gatsby's Supper Club serves dinner with live music five nights a week. There's also the Venom Room for VIP members and private parties–plus a speakeasy for agave spirits in the works. For now, ask for It Had To Be You, which mixes tequila with fresh juices and ginger beer.
