Where and What to Eat Around the Clock in Las Vegas—Late-Night Drunchies Included

From a Middle-of-the-Night Happy Hour to an Exclusive Omakase Dinner, Here’s 9 Places to Eat During Your Next Vegas Trip

Las Vegas has some of the best nightlife in the entire world. The resorts and casinos cater to those who want to enjoy all that life has to offer, but people often overlook the fact that Sin City is a literal paradise for foodies. Whether you’re a brunch fanatic or a late-night partier, Las Vegas is the place to go for drinks, dining and dancing the day or night away. Go for the casinos and stay for the cuisine with these nine around-the-clock spots for serious food lovers.


Breakfast: Eat

In a hotbed of tourism like Las Vegas, eating local doesn’t always seem like a high priority. The fact that it sits in a desert valley may add to the misconception that you can’t eat fresh, sustainable cuisine. Eat, from the creator of Chow, corrects that. Whether you’re waking up early or still out from your night, Eat is the place to go. Its “eggs all day” delights, such as shrimp and grits or a truffled egg sandwich, paired with a mug of Mothership Coffee will keep you Vegas-ready. Situated in downtown Las Vegas, it’s an off-Strip dining destination worth starting (or ending) at. 


Brunch: CHICA

The Venetian offers an unforgettable experience, but even if you aren’t staying here, the dining experiences are top-notch. No party weekend is complete without a mouthwatering brunch at CHICA. This culinary tour of Latin America is so good that it creates tough decisions, so start off with a bloody mary or turmeric tonic. For your entree, you can’t go wrong between the Quesa-Birria Beef Tacos or the Prime Skirt Steak and Eggs. Get the lemon ricotta Bunuelo Donuts for the table, and you’ll be dreaming of your next visit before the check comes.


Happy Hour: Herbs & Rye

Tucked away off the strip, Herbs and Rye is a classy lounge with a world-class happy hour. This isn’t your average midday menu—50% off steak, clams and plenty of other delights await. But let’s be real: happy hour is about the drinks. Herbs and Rye agrees! The cocktail menu is like a history lesson with drinks from different eras so good that locals and visitors alike flock here. If you have to pick one, go with the Blood and Sand—scotch, cherry, sweet vermouth and orange.


Dinner: WAKUDA or Lawry’s

WAKUDA’s Omakase Room is Vegas’ answer to Nozawa Bar, and it is well worth the $500 and the waitlist. This isn’t just a meal, it’s truly a world-class experience curated by the renowned two-Michelin Star Chef Tetsuya Wakuda. This meal is a guaranteed masterpiece and will have guests seeing sushi through a brand new lens. The room has eight seats and only two seatings per night, making it one of the most exclusive experiences in Vegas, so get on the waitlist asap.



Nothing says Vegas like a Rat Pack-worthy steak night, and no steakhouse quite compares to Lawry’s. Lawry’s is acclaimed worldwide, but it’s really known for two items: the seafood tower and the prime rib. The seafood tower is an out-of-this-world display of under-the-sea delicacies (shrimp, oysters, king crab, mussels and clams). With five cuts of prime rib at different price points, there’s something for everyone. Ignore the rest—this is the steak to get. Pair it with an old fashioned and call it a night.


Dessert: Dominique Ansel

After dinner, head to Caesars for a sweet treat to keep the night going. As the inventor of the famous Cronut (half croissant, half doughnut), Dominique Ansel knows a thing or two about pastries. Ansel stays on the cutting edge of the dessert world and is anything but cookie cutter. The Cronut flavor changes every month and never repeats; run, don’t walk for April’s flavor, a delicious Passionfruit and Matcha Cronut. There is also an incredible Cookie Shot Vending Machine, serving a warm cookie cup filled with Madagascan vanilla milk. If you’re into sticking with the classics, the cakes and macarons are to die for.


Cocktails: Vanderpump à Paris

Designed by Lisa Vanderpump, this establishment is equal parts Vegas, Paris and Vanderpump herself. This hideaway is a haven for cocktail lovers—full of classic drinks presented with a flourish. If you happen to be imbibing with a significant other, the LoveLocked is a date-night must. The drinks are served as a pair with a lock on one and key on the other, which are made to be locked onto the walls just like on the Pont des Arts bridge in the City of Light itself!


Late Night: Peppermill

The Peppermill Lounge and Fireside Room have been Strip staples since 1972, serving as a sanctuary for countless Vegas wanderers well into many sleepless nights. This is the spot you go at 1 a.m. when you just need something good to eat and drink. The portions are big, and the drinks are generous—you deserve it. The menu is a dozen pages long and just gets better as you go. There’s nothing quite like French toast and a burger in the middle of the night!


Late, Late Night: The Martini

Designed as a 24-hour tavern, The Martini has happy hour twice a day. While the 3:30-5:30 p.m. window might suit some, the real party happens between midnight and 4 a.m. Grab a $15 filet mignon dinner and get some chicken wings. Try not to fall asleep in the booth, drink a big mug of black coffee, and hit the town again. The Martini even has a wine-to-go deal, where you can take home a mystery bottle of wine for just $6. I mean, why not? It’s Vegas!
