The hot spot

Have two clients and will be in town in early November. Clients love to dress up, drink good wine, eat fancy food, stay up late, get loud and bawdy, people watch, and hit the latest "see and be seen" place on the strip. What do you suggest? What is the latest hot spot in Vegas? I want to impress. Not quiet and romantic but please no buffet or too casual. I am thinking small, intimate, lively, but not a t-shirt type of place. Any ideas? I am leaning towards Jaleo as I have been to the one in DC and it was loads of fun.

  1. Sorry. I guess I was too wordy or too narrow on this one. I did make a reservation at Jaleo. Hoping for the best. Thanks.

      Sorry we couldn't be of more help. I don't think this is a "hot spot" kind of crowd around here. :-)

      Report back on Jaleo if you have the chance.

        Our group at at e back in March. We stayed at the Mandarin. Spent alot of time in the Wynn sports book. Reason I say that all is that we found that Jaleo was, without question, the most "happening" place and that the Cosmo had a much more lively beat than ANY of the other casinos we were in. I can't speak to the quality of the food (other than the Paella that we were given, which was sublime) but it certainly had a good vibe.

        We are returning next Friday for our yearly guys trip and will be happy to report back. Tentative plans are Bartolotta Friday night, Sage Saturday, either Lotus or this new joint The Barrymore Sunday and Monday is open.

          Wow. Excellent. Thanks for your reply. It definitely seems like the Cosmo is the place to see right now so I have a reservation set. It says something if the time I wanted was taken a month in advance. Thanks for mentioning Bartolotta and Lotus and The Barrymore. I will take a look. That was just what I wanted. I also want to at least walk inside the Mandarin. It sounds amazing.

          1. re: mikey

            I think Jaleo is an excellent recommendation. The Cosmo is a happening spot, and Jaleo is their most popular restaurant. In my experience the food delivers as well.

            edit - I see you went with Barrymore. Never tried it.

            I just made a reservation at Barrymore. I mean, the descriptions could not be more perfect; old school, dressy, small and intimate, good food, etc. Looks like fun. Thanks.
