When you’re looking for a show in a smaller venue that won’t include performers emerging from smoke and nine outfit changes, head to the Majestic Repertory Theater downtown in the Arts District. And while you’re in the area, grab dinner first at Hatsumi, a five-minute drive away. It’s a small place with a few booths and mostly bar seating - which is where you want to sit for a peek into the kitchen. Share a few plates like the lomi lomi (fish of the day, onion, tomato, chili ponzu) and pork kakuni (pork belly with a marinated egg) along with a bunch of skewers and get something from their long cocktail list. Though if you have some extra time to kill after, Velveteen Rabbit and ReBar are right next to the theater and are two of our favorite bars in Vegas.
