Get ready to take in the thrilling renaissance of downtown Las Vegas in the most extraordinary and unforgettable way. In recent years, downtown has gone uptown – in a big way. Pulsing with reinvigorated energy, it has been transformed into the city’s most exciting food scene with chef-driven restaurants rich in personality and flavor.
Join us for our “Downtown Lip Smacking Tour’’ to experience a side of Vegas that keeps it real with distinctive urban character. Our expert guides will provide an insider’s view of downtown’s past, present and future, as you take in significant landmarks, and enjoy signature dishes at the most exhilarating neighborhood restaurants devoted to farm-to-table, artisanal-crafted fare.
Forget standing in line, where nabbing a seat these days is as hard as snagging a royal flush at the poker table. Our experienced guides escort you right in to the nationally acclaimed Carson Kitchen. Founded by the late-great Kerry Simon, who was known as the celebrity “rock ‘n’ roll’’ chef, it sports an open kitchen to catch all the action up close and personal, as you enjoy Americana dishes elevated with whimsy and garden-fresh, seasonal ingredients.
At Therapy, get rejuvenated with contemporary comfort food served in a chic, industrial setting. It’s the perfect backdrop for indulging in chicken and Red Velvet waffle sliders; Devil’s on Horseback reinterpreted with bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with truffled goat cheese; and signature baked ricotta gnudi finished with truffled fig jam and roasted almonds.
At Turmeric, the senses come alive with the alluring aromas and flavors of Indian cuisine that have been reimagined and elevated. Poised to be downtown’s newest hot spot, this restaurant with its dazzling rooftop bar, offers an array of irresistible classics. Feast on Masala shrimp mounded on roti — taco-style — and crisp cauliflower florets dressed in a tangy soy-garlic sauce.
Amble through the unique Container Park, a must-stop, where shipping containers have been converted into swank boutiques, bustling restaurants and a spirited venue for free live music.
In between bites, you’ll quench your thirst at Inspire. Enjoy the best view on Fremont East, three stories above Fremont Street, at the city’s largest climate-controlled rooftop lounge and beer garden.
