The original Starboard Tack opened in 1976, and because it was one of the only places open 24 hours, it became the place for celebrities and musicians to come after a show. Now there are plenty of all-night spots, but the new iteration of Starboard Tack is still one of the best. This rum-centered spot a quick drive from the Strip is a mix of ’60s/’70s kitsch and tiki, so you’ll see booths made from fabric that you’re pretty sure you last saw covered in protective plastic at your grandma’s house, a stained-glass underwater scene on the walls, and a live lizard behind glass. You also might catch the end of one of the many local indie or punk shows while finishing up your pu-pu platter of grilled beef with red miso gravy and Thai-curry mussels.
