|The Place||Go||Order||Don’t Miss|
Silverton Casino Hotel, 3333 Blue Diamond Rd
|Because not even Ariel’s Grotto has live mermaids bobbing in a 117,000-gallon tank with stingrays and sharks.||The Blue Hawaii? An Ocean Shore? Sex on the Beach? It’s a boozy journey to another time.||The twice-daily shows, when a marine biologist outfitted in scuba gear feeds the fish. The salt-kissed jukebox jammed with beachy classics from the Mighty Surf Lords and Martin Denny.|
The Freakin’ Frog
4700 S. Maryland Pkwy.
|If you’re a beer-oisseur who’d get misty-eyed at seeing a $2,800 bottle of Samuel Adams Utopias.||Anything off the list of nearly 1,200 beers. Visit the mammoth walk-in to choose your bottle.||The Whiskey Attic upstairs, where 917 labels of aged barley wait for a tasting (sipping by appointment only).|
Hakkasan Las Vegas
MGM Grand Hotel
|When you tire of four-story clubs. This hybrid outpost of the global Cantonese restaurant has five.||Stir-fried black pepper rib eye or the silver cod, a Tsingtao Stout, and a side of Deadmau5.||L.A.-based DJ Steve Aoki. He’s the tiny longhaired figure spinning vinyl above the dance floor.|
Frankie’s Tiki Room
1712 W. Charleston Blvd.
|For off-Strip coconut kitsch and an obscene variety of rum labels.||The Thurston Howl—a trifecta of gin, rum, and brandy—that’ll have you addressing everyone as “Lovey.”||The salt-kissed jukebox jammed with beachy classics from the Mighty Surf Lords and Martin Denny.|
Mandalay Bay, 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. South
|Because it’s new and because even hot Vegas nightclubs (Marquee, Pure) don’t have Cirque du Soleil performers.||There’s likely to be pricey bottle service, but go easy: You’ll find plenty of other ways to spend.||The immersive lighting and sound systems will make it difficult to miss anything.|
107 E. Charleston Blvd., Ste. 155
|For craft cocktails with Amargo Chuncho bitters and Latin fusion tapas in a po-mo arts district.||A ginger-infused, Jameson-based Honey Badger if you’re wistful about bygone Web memes.||The mix of street characters, artists, and tech geeks that crowds around the patio’s roaring fireplace.|
