The Best Late Night Meals On The Las Vegas Strip

Where To eat After You Leave A Las Vegas Nightclub


Right as you leave the nightclub for the night you instantly think about one more option to extend the evening, right? After the club scene cools off you need to re-energize with a decent meal so you might want to have a list of options. Toucan Harry's at the Stardust was once my favorite spot for the very late night meal, these days I have my meal of Bourbon and ice at any bar that will serve me. You on the other hand should have a slice of pizza. Or Banana Pancakes. Or Fried Chicken. Yeah, I'm always craving something when it comes to late night meals.

Looking for late night eating off the strip?

Why The Best Late Night Food In Vegas Isn't On The Strip

Citizens at Mandalay Bay

I'll get up early or stay out really late just for some Banana Pancakes. You should as well. Whatever you do, do not try the ultimate slider challenge late in to the evening. 24 sliders in 24 minutes is a recipe for disaster after a long night out. Your friends will be entertained but you will not wake up happy.

The Secret Pizza at Cosmopolitan Hotel Las Vegas

Walk down a quite hallway into a tiny room with a counter, a few chairs and a few guys tossing pizzas. It's simple, no frills and some decent pizza late at night at the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

Tacos El Gordo

Everybody needs tacos late at night and the best part is that they are cheap and just the right size to help you digest all the extra cocktails that you might have decided to consume. If you spent the evening at Tryst, Surrender, XS, TAO or LAVO Tacos El Gordo is a quick five minute walk North on the Las Vegas strip. They are open late and you'll thank me after two Al Pastor tacos and a Mexican coke.

Five50 Pizza Bar at Aria Las Vegas

Get a slice before bed at the takeout counter at Five50 Pizza bar. They counter stays open later than the restaurant so don't expect any of the great small plates they offer on the regular menu. For that you'll have to get in before midnight.

Central at Caesars Palace

That bright shiny cafe in the lobby at Caesars Palace is Central and if you need a few calories after a long night out you can bet that this is the spot to satisfy you. Don't go to the bar. I've done that before and it can get ugly pretty quick as you decide that drinks for your new friends eventually add up to a big number. Instead, end the night with a good dessert and the fried chicken from Michel Richard

Load up on the Sweets at Sugar Factory

Do you really need to add in some chocolate to your late night meal in Las Vegas? Yes! What kind of question is that? Go decadent with to much sugar right before you pass out from exhaustion. It's a proven fact that sugar before bed after a long night of cocktails actually helps the body recover (no, it is not a fact.) It's always open and if you score a seat on the patio late in the evening the people watching is out of this world.

Le Thai Downtwon Las Vegas (Weekends)

If you need late night noodles this is the spot however it only is good on the weekends as they close early every night but Saturday and Sunday. You should watch your heat level as well if you plan on sleeping. If you plan on pulling an all-nighter the spicy Thai cuisine will help you plenty.

La Cave For Upscale Yet Still Casual Late Night Vegas Eats

A glass of wine or a micro brew and a few selections from the menu that includes quite a few sharing plates will make this a new favorite for you and a few friends. La Cave is comfortably casual and if you have spent anytime at Wynn Las Vegas in the past you know that there was always a need for a place where you could really feel casual amongst the opulence. The kitchen stays open late so you can walk over from Tryst or XS or make a reservation for after Le Reve and keep the night going.

It's a lounge so you'll actually kill two birds with one stone here. End your night at the bar with a scorpion by the fire and then stroll over the the coffee house and fill up on a stack of pancakes and coffee. That's Vegas, Baby!

If you won't make it there before they close just pick up a Woody Allen and put it in a safe place for later. Huge sandwiches make for perfect late night meals and this much Pastrami and Corned Beef will satisfy your craving for the salted cured meats for awhile.
