Looking for good drink and food, hip atmosphere with lots of appetizer or tapas style food for a group of us going out for a night on the town. Any great recommendations?

    There are some good restaurants at the Pier at Ceasars. I think the Continental would fit your needs.

      Cuba Libre at the Tropicana would be my choice

        At Trop, Red Square had great food and a great lounge type atmosphere. And next door at Cuba Libre they have Latin Nights on the weekend (although I'd skip the food - it was one of the worst meals I've ever had in my life).

        Continental is very hip to lounge at as well, with interesting apps.

          we would also be interested is somewhere hip for entrees as a Plan B. I hear the new Chelsea Prime is cool. Where else?

            Wolfgang Puck's at Borgata has a separate pub area that is worth a look.

            In my experience Red Square is great for martinis but the food is lousy and expensive. Check that, make that expensive and lousy. YMMV.

                My wife and I ate in the restaurant area a few months back. Loved the steak. Service was terrific. The pub area has great burgers and bar menu.
