There are a lot of exciting food and drink things to do in Vegas, and it is not a secret that the sin city is well-known for its gourmet restaurants. Here you can easily get tipsy :)
At all the big hotels and casinos, top world chefs are competing to each other just to delight you with their outstanding culinary creations.
However, there are many places where you can also have some fun, and I made a list of 8 of what I found to be the most exciting food and drink experiences.
8 Exciting food and drink things to do in Vegas
It’s about watching the gondolas on the Grand Canal, dining with medieval knights, touring the best gourmet places in town, or grabbing a mouth-watering crepe at one of the street kiosks in Paris…
1. Romantic dining out on the edge of Grand Canal
One of the most exciting food and drink things to do in Vegas is having dinner on the Grand Canal. You can watch the gondolas at B&B Ristorante in the Venetian Hotel Las Vegas and listen to the Italian gondoliers singing.
In this casual/elegant Italian restaurant, you will be spoiled not only by the Venetian atmosphere, but also by the award-winning chefs: Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich. Click to see the menu and prices
2. Romantic Parisian dining experience
Feel the authentic Parisian atmosphere at one of the Paris casual bistros or fine dining restaurants.
When was the last time you walked the old streets of Paris with a delicious French crepe in hand?
3. Dinner in front of the Trevi Fountain in Rome
The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is known as a place where people go with their families or friends for special events, or just for a more exciting place to dine. Trevi Restaurant is one of the most popular because of high quality fresh food and friendly service.
4. Treat your sweet tooth at the largest Chocolate Fountain in the World
The popular attraction features actually 3 fountains in one, with 3 kinds of chocolate: dark, medium and white. No, you cannot put your finger into it and lick it :) But, you can taste the savory confections made out of this great chocolate.
5. Eating in a hospital environment
One of the most exciting food and drink things to do in Vegas is maybe this crazy restaurant with a hospital theme downtown on Fremont Street
The Heart Attack Grill Restaurant is a place where you have to wear a hospital gown (delivered at the entrance) and you eat the most unhealthy food in a funny atmosphere. Don’t worry, it’s a very popular place, and I haven’t heard of anyone dying because of it yet ;)
6. Fremont Street Experience bars and cafes
More exciting food and drink things to do in Vegas can be found at Fremont Street Experience. Here you can sit in one of the street’s bars or cafes, at a table, or just directly at the counter.
