Las Vegas was once only known as the gambling capital of the world. That’s no longer the case as entertainment options have grown immensely over the years. On top of this, Las Vegas is home to some of the best chefs and dining concepts.

Gambling is no longer the only reason people visit Las Vegas. Last year, just under 40% of all revenue at the largest Vegas Strip casinos came from gambling according to the UNLV Center For Gaming Research. More than 60% of revenue came from non-gaming segments last year.

There are great restaurants in Las Vegas ranging from quick serve to fine dining. Some of the places to grab a meal in Las Vegas include both dining and entertainment.

Dinner and a show can be found under the same roof in many Vegas Strip casinos. However, there are a growing number of ways to enjoy both in the same venue – sometimes at the same time.

It’s never been easier to enjoy dinner and a show in Vegas. The possibilities range from a relatively inexpensive family experience to fine dining with exclusive performers.

Las Vegas nostalgia at three different supper clubs

There are two throwback supper clubs in Las Vegas. Both offer fine dining and entertainment in the same room. Neither are for the budget-conscious as they’re located in luxury casino resorts.

Delilah at Wynn Las Vegas is a throwback to the supper clubs of the 1950s. The Mayfair Supper Club at Bellagio is a concept based on the best of this kind around the world.

The Mayfair Supper Club is a modern take on classic American fine dining. Entertainment takes place in the restaurant throughout the night. Guests can expect music, dancing, comedy, and other entertainers roaming the restaurant.

Delilah plays on the rich entertainment history of Las Vegas with a modern interpretation of a supper club. The vibe is 1950s glam in a venue made for today.

The fine dining restaurant features pop, jazz, and soul artists performing on its main stage during dinner time in the main dining room. The venue also has numerous pop-ins from performers ranging from Justin Bieber to comedian Jim Gaffigan.

Word of caution – Delilah is one of the most difficult restaurants in Las Vegas to procure a reservation. Make sure to get a reservation inside the main dining room to get the full experience. Bar seats don’t offer the same experience.

Superfrico at The Cosmopolitan is a different take on a supper club. The venue has a separate restaurant and bar, Superfrico, along with a show called OPM in the attached theater.

Guests dining or drinking at the bar will be treated to some performers mingling throughout the space all night. The full show OPM comes from the producers of Absinthe and is in a separate room where guests can watch after dinner or on their own.

The venue also houses one of the numerous hidden bars at The Cosmopolitan. Some of the performers might dip in here to entertain the 50 or so guests.

Where to enjoy music while you eat

There are numerous music venues with restaurants. Some of the venues even offer free entertainment for all in attendance.

Guests can watch a performer while they eat at some venues like Dawg House Saloon & Sports Book at Resorts World. There may be a minimum required for anyone dining at a table instead of the bar on nights when there’s live music. The required spend is usually the cost of a meal.

House of Blues at Mandalay Bar has a restaurant and live music venue but both are separate. Guests can enjoy a nice dinner before walking to the music venue to see a national touring performer. However, there’s space in the restaurant where some visitors can watch live music while they dine.

Sunday Gospel Brunch gives visitors the best of both worlds at House of Blues.

Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq Promenade also has a separate live music venue and restaurant. The no spaces don’t overlap so all concerts require a separate ticket.

The restaurant and entertainment spaces at Gilley’s inside Treasure Island are in separate rooms but under the same roof.

Fun for the whole family

Tournament of Kings at Excalibur is the quintessential dinner and a show for the whole family. There are venues with similar style shows around the country and combined with the all-ages access and moderate prices make this a hot ticket in Las Vegas.

Tournament of Kings is a live-action production based on the tale of King Arthur. The venue seats 900 people who can feast like a king while watching knights jousting and having sword fights inside the arena below.

Dinner with a view

Bellagio and Wynn have numerous restaurants with a view of their respective lakes. These are short bursts of entertainment guests can see while dining at certain restaurants inside each Vegas Strip casino.

Diners at Jasmine, Lago, Prime, Picasso, and Spago can sit outside or by a window to enjoy the gorgeous fountain show on Lake Bellagio. The bar at The Mayfield Supper Club also features a view of the fountains.

Visitors dining at Lakeside or SW Steakhouse inside Wynn can see the Lake of Dreams show while dining. The show takes place every half hour and the public can watch it from Bar Parasol outside of SW Steakhouse.
