I have never heard you mention the "Top of the World" restaurant at the Stratosphere. It's a great place to have lunch or dinner and won't cost you an arm and leg. The bar there has a great happy hour as well. It's one of my go-to places when I bring people to Vegas for their first visit. Incredible views of both strip and downtown and no "charge" just to get up to 52 stories.
Thanks for the tsk, Pat! While its location makes its hard to be considered a Vegas "must do," the Strat should definitely be given more consideration by folks willing to venture off the main Strip. There's actually a bottomless happy hour there that we've been thirsting after. (And, for the record, we have mentioned that Top of the World is gimmicky, but worth it, although, it's -- admittedly -- been a while.)
Feel another Vegas venue is more underrated than it should be? Let us know in the comments below!
