New Year's Eve off The Strip?

We are looking for a restaurant off The Strip to celebrate New Year's Eve. My husband and I are "new locals". A couple of friends from out of town will be joining us. Restaurants on The Strip are charging $200-$300 for their late seating which is a huge turn off, and not to mention the chaos that will result from the Strip closing to all but pedestrian traffic.

  1. My only suggestion is that you choose a restaurant on the same side of town as you reside. You will not be able to cross the Strip after around 6:00 pm or perhaps earlier as it is closed to all vehicles going all directions and open to pedestrian traffic only.

    1. Nikki Beach Club at the Tropicana is NOT yet open. It isn't scheduled to open until spring of *2011*, yet somehow it's your favorite place to go for New Year's Eve in Las Vegas.


    2. Well, todd's is a terrific green valley choice if it would be convenient to you; I don't know what they are doing for NYE, but it is generally excellent. Other options would include Vintner's Grill (which I think would probably be fun, but packed, for NYE) and Marche Bacchus. If you wanted to go to a casino, but not on the strip, I'd probably consider Red Rock, GVR, and the M, but personally, I'd avoid even those more local spots. A lot depends on what you want; Sen of Japan is one of my favorite places, but I wouldn't necessarily think of it for NYE if you are looking for more of a special dinner/celebration atmosphere.
