3. Fewer D-bags
We love watching fist-pumping, gel-wearing guidos on TV. But, partying with them? Not so much. Buskers and homeless people make up for the lack of douches downtown, but, thankfully, they’re a lot easier to avoid.
4. Bar + Bistro
Dudes, take note: girls, especially prissy girls, love Spanish tapas and sangria. And, if that isn’t enough culture for you, check out the adjacent art gallery.
Surprisingly, a classy joint! We ooooh-ed and ahhh-ed at the live piano player, chandeliers and cocktail list. It’ll make you wish you were a mafia broad.
6. Cheaper everything
Once we found out drinks downtown are half the price you’d pay on The Strip, it made the grimy surroundings a lot more enjoyable. And, with cheap alcohol comes cheap drunk munchies: one dollar shrimp cocktails, .99 cent fried twinkies, and $3.49 for a 10-inch pizza.
7. Brunch at Triple George Grill
We love Triple George Grill and neighboring Mob Bar for the fab bartenders (ask for Vince!) and their amazing baked goat cheese appetizer (to die!). Prissy girls love brunch because we get to sleep in late, drink mimosas and eat waffles. And, unlike some brunch places on The Strip, there isn’t a minimum $500 spend or blaring music playing.
Arguably, the best place for a date with a prissy girl. Just thinking about The Smith Center makes me want to put on my most chic dress and red lipstick to watch the ballet and let my inner musical snob come out.
It’s fast becoming the bar where all the cool kids hang out downtown. It’s the closest thing Downtown Vegas has to a nightclub, except there’s no dancing, just loud (but good!) music. Love the Great Gatsby-esque décor and the twinkly rooftop bar. Ask the waitress about the reservation-only Laundry Room.
10. Drink & Drag
If prissy girls were men, they’d be drag queens. Everything about this bar screams fabulous, from the lashes and the wigs to the male go-go dancers and the bowling lanes. Everything, but the cover charges. Men and women both have to pay them. But, any woman who would pay to get into a club — on or off The Strip — is a fool. One way to get around it is to join Drink & Drag’s text program.
