Las Vegas isn’t known for keeping anything old around. Instead, the city is more apt to blow something up or tear it down in the name of progress to usher in a new era. These 18 Las Vegas classic restaurants and bars have stuck around, and still serve something worth checking out. Italian fare from Bootlegger Bistro, Chicago Joe’s, and Piero’s Italian Cuisine make the list along with romantic favorite Hugo’s Cellar with its roving carts dishing out salads and cherry’s jubilee and Michael’s Gourmet Room with its jewelbox of a dining room swaddled in red velvet and table-side service. Old-time dive bars such as Dino’s Lounge and the oldest steakhouse in Las Vegas, the Golden Steer, make the cut as well. Of course, late-night and breakfast favorite the Peppermill with its Fireside Lounge also find a home on this list. On the Strip, find Spago from Wolfgang Puck and Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House, two of the oldest celebrity chef restaurants in the city.
