10 Reasons Prissy Girls Should Go Downtown

January 21, 2013 at 7:41 PM | by | Comments (4)

This VegasChatter writer loves the Las Vegas Strip. It’s high profile, glamorous, ever-evolving and over-the-top, just like her. Going to Downtown Vegas after partying on The Strip is like downgrading from a high-end department store to a swap meet. Sure, you’ll find similar things, but they won’t be as nice or expensive and it smells. But, if you can get past that, and all the homeless people, you’ll end up having a good time in a much less pretentious atmosphere!

Here are 10 reasons why even the prissiest of girls should visit Downtown Vegas:

1. Casual Atmosphere

This VegasChatter'er loves her stilettos and sparkly dresses, but for those nights when you feel more like flats and (cringe) wearing leggings as pants, there’s always downtown. No judgment or heel rats, just fun.

2. Downtown Cocktail Room

This is one of the places that made Downtown worth the trip. Recommended by one of our hipster BFFs (read: bike-riding, PBR-drinking writer), the nearly hidden spot is dark, plush and serves artfully crafted cocktails with ingredients we’ve never heard before.

The Top 5 Steakhouses In Vegas (That We've Tried This Year)

We love steak and are always excited to try a new or different steakhouse. This year brought a few new steakhouses to Las Vegas. Some were winners and some weren't. We visited many of them, but we also visited many existing steakhouses for the first time, too.

Here are our favorites among what we've tried out this year. You can see last year's favorite steakhouses here.

Downtown Dining: The Flame

Where: 600 East Fremont Street [map], 89101
August 3, 2012 at 2:57 PM | by | Comments (6)

We've never heard an extremely positive or extremely negative review about The Flame at El Cortez, but this writer is always up to try a new steakhouse and he's glad he did. Happiness doesn't come from the fact the steak was good (it wasn't), but this writer won enough playing craps to cover dinner for two and then some.

We weren't expecting the best steak in Vegas, but we did expect something good enough to walk away from smiling. We did do that, but it could have been because of the wine and our awesome waitress who laughed every time we clapped and said "Hercules, Hercules." Despeite our fun waitress, the next time we're downtown craving a moderately priced steak we'll take the five minute walk to Triple George.

Downtown's New Farmers Market is Pretty Fresh

Where: 300 North Casino Center [map]

We've been vocal advocates of the ever-flowing changes to Downtown Las Vegas and, in particular, Fremont East, including its influx of bars and restaurants. But, here's an addition to Downtown's tenacious revival, that's less indulgent.

Each Friday, mere blocks from the Heart Attack Grill, you can visit the Downtown 3rd Farmers Market, a cornucopia of fresh food, artisanal eats and eco-friendly goods. The first try-out was held directly on 3rd Street, but it's moving to a larger, covered area around the corner. Expect vendors and food trucks as well as a whole bunch of very eager customers.
