Mrsmiley,

You forgot PT's pub on every corner! Chicago's Own steakhouse was really great. Sad to see them leave. Bahama Breeze is pretty good too. For Italian there's Piero's. I no longer live in Vegas and moved back home to Huntington Beach, CA. Piero's has a restaurant here called The Ritz located in Newport Beach. Off of Eastern and St. Rose there was a Hawaiian restaurant I believe closed down. Sorta a locals place off the beaten path.

Mahalo,
Tikitatt

Tao in the Venitian R, B
The former site of Taboo Cove (RIP)
Great asian decor with some odd items like the opium pipes. The club was closed the night we were there but the Hall of Monk's looks cool on the website.

Definite "off strip" option...The Art Bar - a bit funky, not the typical vegas.....and has a VELVET ELVIS ROOM. The owner is an Elvis Impersonator. Nice guy. Stopped in for a drink & left 8 hours later......good times.....

What is the deal with the Peppermill. I was in Vegas two weeks ago and the Peppermill is closed. There was a note on the door regarding maintenance problems, but no opening date was mentioned. Anyone knows whats up?

Help on this appreciated ... some friends planning their post-renewal of vows drinks at the Peppermill Lounge in mid-April.

Thanks in advance!

I just booked my flight to Vegas for the 25th of this month. I'll make it a point to stop by the Peppermill.

Looking forward to celebration drinks around the firepit.

Mr. Smiley,

As a Vegas resident, can you comment on the following? They are on my list of places to visit.

1. Huntridge Tavern - Does it vibe Vegas history (or is it just a dump) ?
2. Cheetahs - Are there any nice Tikis here ?
3. Golden Steer - How are the steaks compared to Circus Circus or Binion's ?

Thanks,

JOHN-O

Smiley Sez...#1 Possibly just a dump-I will have to check it out again, it has been a while. The Huntridge Drug next door has a great old lunch counter (diner). Currently it is waiting for someone to run it.
#2 Cheetahs: Russell and Hubert go there alot, but we have a "don't ask-don't tell policy"
#3 Steaks at Golden Steer are the Best, Binions second place and Circus Circus third. Golden Steer has great vintage Vgeas Steakhouse ambiance and Frank Sinatra is almost always on the Muzak. Binions has a great view and Circus Circus has a great classic Steakhouse ambience, but last time I went there my Steak was ok-not fantastic. I did have a great time though.

Hi, I Know this is about places that are open, but how about some now closed places that should be remembered:

Alpine Village- this was an amazing place. esp. the Ratskeller

The Venetion- killer I talian place on the side of the boulevard mall

The aku aku- need I say more

Don the Beachcombers- ditto

vinnies paradise lounge- crazy place- Black velvet paintins of virgins and devils behind the bar- red pattent leather and even a red toilet.
