The Best Sports Bars in Las Vegas
Sticks Tavern is one of our favorite things about Henderson's rejuvenated Water Street district; named in honor of its proximity to Lifeguard Stadium, where the Silver Knights play minor-league hockey. A few of the cocktails have a hockey theme and the boozy milkshakes are fun, but the food has a few impressive touches like Mary's Organic Chicken for the wings—flats only for a higher meat-to-bone ratio. Sticks added some new house specialties (like shrimp tacos and a New York Strip with Chimichurri over fries) and six burgers, including a version inspired by chef Jordan Camacho's visit to Greece earlier this year and a veggie burger made with maitake mushrooms. The restaurant has upped its whiskey game in recent months and moved the addictive Rueben Fries from the secret menu to the regular one. Sticks Taverns is also a ghost kitchen for To Be Frank, which serves some of the best gourmet hot dogs in Las Vegas.
