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.

Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips
The fish at Gordon Ramsay Fish and Chips in the Linq Hotel is great, but you’re really there for the chips which you can get covered in chorizo.
You may have to walk through the smokey Eureka Casino to get it, but the burger at Fat Choy is one of our favorites in the city.
The reverse Happy Hour at Izakaya Go in Chinatown is an amazing deal, but their menu of Japanese small plates is already super reasonably priced.
