SOL Mexican Cocina is the latest and greatest restaurant to hit the Las Vegas Strip at The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. The grand opening of SOL welcomed everyone from Bruno Mars to reality stars like Audrina Patridge, Perez Hilton and Heather Gay, proving that SOL is set to be one of the biggest hotspots to open this year. All of the drinks are creative and diverse, but the Velvet Espresso cocktail—made with SelvaRey chocolate rum and topped with Cardi B’s Mocha Whipshots cream—is the ultimate pre-game cocktail that is only available at SOL’s Las Vegas location. If margaritas are more your style, SOL has an entire section dedicated to the zesty cocktail. From grilled octopus to classic street tacos, the dinner menu puts a contemporary spin on authentic Mexican favorites. However, one of the most exciting things about SOL is that you can Sunday Funday all week long thanks to the daily brunch offerings—when in Vegas, right?!

The iconic Thai restaurant that has been a Las Vegas staple since 1999 has officially opened at The Red Rock Casino in Summerlin. The hanging greenery and rattan light fixtures create a transportive atmosphere that is both inviting and upscale. When it comes to the food, the menu is massive. From Thai classics like pad see ew to panang curry, Lotus of Siam uses traditional cooking methods and vibrant spices in each dish. If you’re visiting with a large group, opt for some larger dishes like the deep-fried Thai snapper or Maine lobster in garlic pepper sauce—both of which are perfect for sharing. 


Pier 17 Yacht Club

Looking for a new speakeasy in Las Vegas? Look no further than the Pier 17 Yacht Club. This one-of-a-kind speakeasy sits right in the heart of The Strip and comes from the same masterminds behind Caesars’ iconic show, Absinthe. The bar is located in an unassuming shipping container and offers only a couple of burgers and some tater tots. Simply stroll through a row of hedges next to the Absinthe show tent and you’ll find it; no password is necessary. The No Pants burger is the signature staple, but if you’re vegan, you can enjoy the plant-based No Burger burger. Both are served on a soft pretzel bun while the elevated tater tots are topped with caviar.

Located in downtown Las Vegas, La Mona Rosa is bringing innovative Mexican cuisine to the East Fremont neighborhood. The restaurant itself spans across 3,500 square feet, and its industrial setting with pink accents makes it an ideal backdrop for a GNO or bachelorette party. That said, the Pink Brunch, which features all pink libations, is the ultimate day-drinking activity for the gals. The El Nopal tacos are filled with a tender, grilled cactus while the aguachile tostada is a refreshing and vibrant seafood-forward dish. If you want a great deal, stop by for the weekend happy hour from 3-5 p.m. to enjoy $3 bites and discounted drinks.

Also located at the Red Rock Casino in Summerlin, Rouge Room takes patrons to the heart of Paris with its maroon interior, sultry curtains and sleek piano. Snag one of the tufted booths or sit at the chic bar top while you sip on a build-your-own martini. The martini menu allows you to select gin or vodka, customize the style (ranging from dry to dirty), choose your garnish and even add a tincture infusion. There is also a martini flight that is available for $45 if you’d like to try a range of creations. Pair with some caviar service for the ultimate sense of luxury. 



Stanton Social Prime

The newly opened Stanton Social Prime brings a true taste of New York City glam to Las Vegas. Hailing from the Lower East Side, this stunning steakhouse specializes in all things meat. Its premium cuts and steaks are seasoned with a dry rub that is made in-house and coated in a rich Beurre de Baratte sauce. While the steaks are obviously the star of the show, the theater-inspired platings and presentations are worthy of being on Broadway. For dessert, don’t miss out on the Movie Theater Sundae. This sweet treat is balanced with toasted movie popcorn and is served in a classic red and white popcorn box.

A concept from Tao Group Hospitality, Cathédrale focuses on French and Mediterranean fare and has more than 250 seats in the elegant space it inhabits.
