Hot Happenings

Have a drink, grab a bite

We all know you can never have enough bars and restaurants to feed the throngs of tourists in Las Vegas, so here’s a few more to boggle patrons’ minds even more than we’ve already boggled them.

Amid its $192 million modernization, look for stylish new eateries at Palace Station, including: bDd’s (Beers, Burgers, Desserts), Boathouse Asian Eatery, and Mumfresh Asian Eats. Oh — and a thorough updating of its classic Feast Buffet. Soup’s on! (and everything else, too).

Got a hankering for a hangover? No, not that kind (we hope). We’re referring to Madame Tussauds’ new Hangover Bar, named after the raucous movie comedy, offering specialty drinks inspired by the flick and complementing the attraction’s Hangover Experience.

You can’t possibly feel blue once you’ve sampled the unique beers at the new Blue Moon Bar at Planet Hollywood — including its flagship beer, Blue Moon Belgian White — in the new space in front of Zappos Theater. And in September, get your drink on when the new Electra Cocktail Club opens at the Palazzo, described as “a collision of energy and style.”

Lay out the welcome-back mat for Smith & Wollensky, which is returning to the Strip next spring when it unveils its latest incarnation at the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian and Palazzo. Prepare to dig in and pig out (elegantly, of course).

And here’s some lip-smackin’, throat-burnin’ news: “Underground Moonshine” and “Underground Vodka” are now for sale at the Mob Museum, giving visitors a genuine taste of Prohibition — or how people cheated Prohibition. Created on-site, the moonshine is a Las Vegas corn whiskey, made with double-distilled, 100 percent corn mash, measuring a stiff 100 proof. And the vodka, handmade in Nevada, measures 80 proof.
