When you live in a city that offers so much, it is rare to “wow” people.  Yet somehow, with the latest developments near The Strip and Tropicana, this city has once again found a way to surprise. T-Mobile Arena and The Park offer so much – it earned its own article!

The mainstays to either side of The Park offer a fantastic gateway – Tom’s Urban, Diablo’s Cantina, SNF Shake Shack.  However, there is more to explore once you walk amongst the trees.

Beerhaus offers an awesome bar environment with screens all around, a huge selection of beers (hence the name) and an excellent menu featuring hormone-free meat and locally sourced produce – a little more highbrow than your normal bar fare.

Bruxie offers sandwiches on waffles.  It may sound weird and trendy – and it is – but it is delicious and at a great price point for the strip.  Bruxie makes Chicken & Waffles incredibly portable.

Sake Rok is tucked further within The Park, with an entertaining staff and spontaneous Sake bombs, it goes hand and hand with their incredible sushi – it’s earned them rave reviews in such a short time being open.

The biggest surprise at The Park may be California Pizza Kitchen!  They’ve stepped it up several notches with this location – with many online 4-star reviews, claiming it is unlike any other CPK experience they’ve had.  The ambiance alone will have you saying the same thing.

Once inside T-Mobile Arena, betwixt the normal concessions fare, you’ll find incredible dining options!  There’s a Shake Shack (yes, feet from the New York New York location) as well as Pizza Forte (from the kitchen that brought you the well-loved Ferraro’s).  The only knock on the property is they hide these deep within the concourse, so do a loop around the building for the best bites.

All and all, we are far too spoiled in Sin City – and that is fine by me.
