Funny you mention this. Last time we were in Vegas was 2 years ago for my 40th bday. Had wayyy too many drinks at Frankie's before dinner, and remember absolutely zero about our dinner at Hugo's. I do recall thinking it was an awesome vibe with the brick walls in the basement and all the rest. How was our food? Who the hell knows! But it was awesome. A (gigantic) old fashioned later, and we were stumbling over to DCR. Eventually wandered outside to catch a catfight where one chick got her head repeatedly banged into the sidewalk by another before it was broken up. Blood and hair everyplace. Quite an eveningCheck out a place called Hugo's Cellar.
Downtown, off the Fremont Experience, in the basement of the Four Queens hotel.
It's not for everyone, but it looks like it's been there since Sammy and Dean were buying drinks. Salads made table side, Beef Wellington on the menu (😂), rickety old waiters who will run across the street to borrow wine from other restaurants if you order something pricey.
One thing about a lot of Vegas restaurants, they have a very sterile vibe, especially the newer places. Hugo's Cellar is a little time machine, I love it there.
If you do wind up down there, the best place for drinks after, not involving a casino, are the Griffin, and Downtown Cocktail Room.
