Las Vegas Convention Center
| Las Vegas Convention Center [Official Site]

More than 21,000 conventions and meetings take place Las Vegas every year. For a city that has built its reputation on showgirls, nightclubs that don’t close until 6 a.m., and margaritas sold by the yard, Sin City can be a surprisingly productive place. When it comes to doing business in Vegas, the Las Vegas Convention Center reigns supreme. Located on Paradise Road about three miles from 100,000 hotel rooms, the Las Vegas Convention Center features 3.2 million square feet of space including 13 exhibit halls and parking for approximately 10,000 cars. The Las Vegas Convention Convention Center does offer some limited dining choices for grabbing a quick bite in between meetings, but everyone knows that no business trip to Las Vegas is complete without a side of pleasure. For the food lover, that means stepping outside of the Las Vegas Convention Center and having a meal at one of these nearby restaurants.

Peppermil

Every city needs a good diner, and the Peppermill with its neighboring Fireside Lounge fulfills that need, all wrapped in neon nostalgia on the north Strip. The 14-page menu runs the gamut from omelets and French toast to burgers and steaks. Patrons who sit at the counter can watch the greasy spoon kitchen at work. No trip here is complete without a trip to the Fireside Lounge with its kitschy fire pit, enormous cocktails with equally ginormous straws and electric pink, blue and purple decor from the Doumani family.

The Barrymore

Despite its 2012 opening date, The Barrymore inside the Royal Resort feels like the kind of restaurant that’s been in Las Vegas since the days of the Rat Pack. Sitting in the plush booths beneath the ceiling adorned with film reels, one can practically imagine an old mobster smoking a cigar and ordering a steak. For convention-goers looking for an intimate, memorable dining experience, the restaurant offers all the fine-dining classics including a shrimp cocktail, dry-aged bone-in rib-eye steak, and crème brûlée for dessert.
