Get your pen and paper ready for some new table-shaking catchphrases.
“I’m Here for a Good Time, Not a Long Time”
Arguably, the best part of visiting any city is the food. Here are some establishments to check out while you’re visiting.
Smoke and Fire: Social media’s beloved food reviewer, Keith Lee, gave rave reviews to this place, rating their blueberry chicken sandwich as a 10. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but the establishment was voted as having the best new burger and BBQ in Las Vegas.
Gritz Cafe: Also known as The Ritz for Gritz, this is the place to be for brunch. Voted Best Restaurant in Las Vegas, the menu is simple but full of flavor, offering classic brunch delights like shrimp and grits or chicken and waffles.
Buldogis Gourmet Hot Dogs: This husband-and-wife duo serves beef hot dogs with Korean flair. Get your dog topped with kimchi, spicy chili, pork belly, or Asian slaw. They have traditional-style hot dogs too, as well as rice bowls, noodle soup, and sandwiches.
Cafe Lola: You know those cute shops that appear in Bravo episodes when “friends” meet up? This place gives those vibes. It’s a very glam and posh coffee shop that will channel your inner reality TV star.
“He’s a Very Opinionated Dog”
Le Pup Café by Dog & Whistle: The Bravo stars love their fur babies. If you’re traveling with your canine companion, give them the royal treatment at this pet cafe. The made-to-order dog bowls are customizable and sourced from farmers across the country.
“It’s Not About the Pasta”
While there are plenty of good meals in the city, Vegas is also known for its casinos, concerts, and lively entertainment. You’ll want to catch some of the action while you visit BravoCon.
Las Vegas is full of charm and allurement, often leading first-time visitors to the Strip. It’s almost taboo to skip, honestly because walking the Strip is one of those tourist essentials. However, South Las Vegas Boulevard claims to be one of the most popular nightlife destinations in the world. There is something for everyone. You’ll find clubs, shopping, a vertical drop rollercoaster for thrill seekers, and the Eiffel Tower. Both Paris and Venice are recreated on the Strip.
There are shows galore happening every night of the week. From magic shows to residencies to burlesque and comedy. Whatever you’re in the mood for, you can find it. Check out the many show listings around town here, including America’s Got Talent Superstars Live.
