Amid the glitzy casinos, pulsing nightclubs and endless all-you-can-eat buffets, you’ll find a burgeoning culinary and cocktail scene flourishing in Las Vegas. If you’re craving something special during your next trip to Sin City, take a seat inside these six standouts boasting not-to-miss dishes, drinks and design.

Mott 32

Hong Kong’s award-winning restaurant Mott 32 made its U.S. debut less than a year ago, bringing its Far East concept westward to the Palazzo at the Venetian Resort Las Vegas. Inside the restaurant’s luxuriously playful space that gives nod to both its Chinese roots and Las Vegas locale with eye-catching elements (think neon signage, a dining table made out of a vintage roulette wheel and a chandelier adorned with a feather boa), you’re in for treat with one-of-a-kind, innovative Chinese cuisine bursting with authentic flavors derived from Cantonese, Szechuan and Beijing cultures. Start with handmade steamed dim sum, like the spicy hot and sour Iberico pork Shanghainese soup dumplings served in miniature woven baskets, or the soft quail egg, Iberico pork and black truffle siu mai before migrating to mouth-watering mains including delectable wok-fried scallops and stir-fried Australian wagyu with shitake mushrooms, baby leeks and chile. Thirsty? Mott 32’s encyclopedic cocktail list features handcrafted signature sips like the Hong Kong iced tea crafted with Volcan Cristalino anejo tequila, Lillet Blanc, blackcurrant and jasmine tea. mott32.com/lasvegas

Electra Cocktail Club

Somewhere between the mirrored ceiling, expert music selection curated by resident DJs and a mesmerizing digital canvas wall, you’ll find yourself kicking back in a cocktail club that’s redefining Vegas nightlife. Yes, you can actually have a conversation in this hip-meets-chill night club nestled in the Palazzo casino while sipping on a frozen Penichillin, crafted with smoky scotch, fresh lemon, ginger and honey or adding a jolt to your night with a Quick Charge shot of vodka, cold brew coffee and coconut. You can also enjoy a tall glass of Unicorn Tears crafted with gin, fino sherry, fresh lime, pineapple and absinthe. Feeling fancy? Opt for a bottle of Champagne served with strawberries, or gather your group around Electra’s VIP corner banquette, encircled by an oversize stack of sparkling gold LED bracelets, and order from the cocktail club’s extensive bottle service list. venetian.com/restaurants/electra-cocktail-club.html

Matteo's Ristorante Italiano 

Take your taste buds on a tantalizing trip across the Italian Peninsula at Matteo's Ristorante Italiano, located on Restaurant Row at the Venetian. Witness beautiful house-made pasta being prepared at the back of the restaurant while swirling a glass of sangiovese and indulging in authentic trattoria-style standouts such as the tradizionale Ligurian focaccina bursting with crescenza cheese and topped with wild arugula or the signature Mandilli di Seta — thin sheets of handkerchief egg pasta swimming in almond basil pesto and drizzled with Ligurian olive oil. matteosvegas.com

Rosina

Does pressing a button and receiving a glass of Champagne sound like something from your dreams? Well, this fantasy bubbles to life at Rosina — the dimly lit, sumptuous cocktail bar tucked just off the buzzing casino floor in the Palazzo Las Vegas. But the “Press for Champagne” call button is just one of the draws to this glamorously intimate space where art deco flair infuses with velvet-cloaked seating and shimmering chandeliers to create a lavish backdrop for sipping bubbly or a specially crafted Old Fashioned-inspired cocktail from Rosina’s “secret menu.” venetian.com/restaurants/rosina.html

Spago

While reservations are always recommended, you can still saunter into Spago’s sleek space for lunch and snag the best seat on the Strip, where al fresco dining is accompanied by front-row entertainment courtesy of the Bellagio Fountains. But the real showstoppers at Wolfgang Puck’s flagship fine-dining restaurant housed in the Bellagio can be found on its reimagined menu featuring fresh house-made pasta dishes such as the handmade ricotta cavatelli, the wood-fired prosciutto and fig pizza topped with burrata and arugula, and land and sea options spanning prime steaks to fresh seafood dishes like the east and west coast oyster plate served with pink peppercorn-apple mignonette, delicately stacked spicy tuna tartare and steamed Icelandic cod served Hong Kong-style. wolfgangpuck.com/dining/spago-lv

Yardbird

Stop into Yardbird Southern Table & Bar for brunch to experience elevated farm-fresh comfort food like the Chicken ‘n’ Watermelon ‘n’ Waffles plate featuring Vermont sharp cheddar cheese waffles, fried-to-perfection chicken, bourbon maple syrup and chilled spiced watermelon, or the Low Country Crab Cake Benedict layered with fried green tomatoes, poached farm eggs, smoked bacon and charred lemon hollandaise. For a lighter bite, opt for the deviled eggs topped with smoked trout roe or the kale salad tossed with apples, cornbread croutons and house-made moonshine raisins. Yardbird’s innovative specialty cocktails are paired with different types of hand-harvested ice — try the refreshing Watermelon Sling crafted with Dickel White Whisky, fresh-pressed watermelon juice, lemon, Aperol and rosemary served in a lowball served with 2-inch block ice. runchickenrun.com/location/las-vegas
