Duck Noodle Soup at the Hard Rock

This place is nothing but a flagrant attempt at bringing in the kinds of people who are into Hong Kong–style roast-duck noodle soup, Thai-basil-topped salmon and patio seating on the Hard Rock casino floor. Oh right, that’s you. Go ahead and enjoy this, then.

SWEETS OF STRENGTH

World-Famous Gelato and Chocolate

You like to hit the hard stuff in Vegas. That’s right, we’re talking about the chocolate, gelato and crepes. And this new Milanese import at the Palms may as well be the only place on earth to get those things. You may have a problem.

Being Able to Say, “Give Me the Sinatra”

The members of the Rat Pack were regulars at this place. And not all of them drank apple juice. Coincidentally, neither do you. Which is why you’ll stop at the Casino Bar here for their new retro cocktails. Grab a Frankie Two Fingers or a flaming sidecar. Or a drink.

Bagatelle. For Thanksgiving. Try It.

Suffice it to say, we’d like to hear your story if you’re the type to find yourself on the Strip on Thanksgiving. Also: get yourself to Bagatelle for turkey-leg roulade, whipped potatoes, roasted prime rib and, likely, some table dancing. Just like when you were a kid.

CUE UP

A Pool Hall/Rock Museum

You try to visit all the great rock-and-roll museums across America. Problem is, so few of them also have world-class billiards lounges. But that problem doesn’t exist here, where 30,000 records adorn the walls and you’ll do your best Fast Eddie Felson. Although we know you’d never gamble.
