(R/B) Battista's Hole In The Wall (702) 732-1424 4041 Audrie St. Make sure you tip the little old accordian player! This place is endangered by proposed redevelopement!!!!



Battista's Hole In The Wall has been bought by Harrah's. A friend of Lady V's knows one of the owners and she says they could close in a few months to a few years. This is a definite stop when we go to Vegas.

I would add (R) Carluccio's Tivoli Gardens, which used to be Liberace's Tivoli Gardens and is next door to the Liberace Museum.


Liberace decorated this Italian restaurant himself and all the furniture is vintage 1960s-70s and very loungy.


Best is a lounge full of Saarinen Tulip Chairs and Tables:


When I was there, the food was very good and very reasonable. Lots of locals there with their families.

1775 E. Tropicana Ave.
Las Vegas, NV 89119

carluccio's has excellent food at very reasonable prices. there's also micky finz on fremont street that just finished getting a buildout from tikidiablo. nice drinks, nice people but not the most tiki place. lots of great stuff from danny, but it's an open air place on fremont st.

An open air place that serves cocktails, although not tiki? What hotel casino is it by?

Nice, light & airy tiki establishment, with a beachy feel:

There's a wonderful dive across the Strip from Mandalay called "The Laughing Jackalope." It's wedged between a strip mall and a run down motel.

Cheap drinks. Fantastic hamburgers. Atmosphere out the wazoo.

EVERY wednesday night Wes Winters plays the lounge (He does the Liberace tribute show next door - but appears as himself at the bar only on Wednesaday nights).

It is the ULTIMATE Vegas experience and a few tiki central ohana are making it their regular hangout... namely me (futura girl) and inky louise and a few other friends.
Sorry Sabu - those Saarinen Tulip Chairs chairs are knockoffs - but still they're fabbiolous.

If you're heading to vegas - make sure wed at Tivoli Gardens is on your agenda. (they are only open until 10PM by the way)

The Cabana Bar at The Wynn's pool use Trader Vic's for mixers. Their drinks are great and their pineapple mojito is worth the $12
