BLACKOUT Dining in the Dark

For the ultimate blind date, there is nothing in Las Vegas quite like BLACKOUT Dining in the Dark.

Customers are required to leave all light-emitting devices in lockers outside the dining room.

Friendly servers wearing night-vision goggles guide you to and from your table and serve as your eyes throughout this dining adventure. Order off the drink menu before you enter the dining room, where you will indulge in a five to seven-course surprise menu comprised of savory, spicy and sweet dishes. Guests rave about this one-of-a-kind culinary experience.

Sparrow + Wolf

Sparrow + Wolf is the vision of owner and executive chef Brian Howard, a Michigan native with over nineteen years of experience in Las Vegas casino’s fine dining restaurants. Opened in 2017, Sparrow + Wolf is one of the most sought after dining experiences on or off the Strip.

The restaurant’s continually evolving menu takes its inspiration from locations Howard has visited, along with different cultures and neighborhoods. Previously inspired by Asian and Mediterranean cuisines, for example, dishes on the menu currently take their cues from the flavors and spices of Mexico and Latin America.

The menu consists of artfully plated items whose appearance is in keeping with Sparrow + Wolf’s rustic, modern décor. Diners can sample affordable small plates such as swordfish aguachile, Spanish octopus, charred Romanesco and braised lamb neck.

Mermaid Restaurant & Lounge

If you’re looking for a casual date eatery with completely unique décor, there is no other place in all of Vegas quite like the Mermaid Restaurant & Lounge. Situated about five miles south of the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign, the Mermaid Restaurant & Lounge is located in the Silverton Casino.

The Mermaid Restaurant & Lounge serves a typical selection of bar drinks and good American fare that includes a wide selection of burgers. Other menu items include nachos, wings, ribs, shrimp and a variety of pizzas, but you really don’t come here for the food. The restaurant’s tropical, underwater theme hints at the real appeal of this place.

The highlight of the Mermaid Restaurant & Lounge is its 117,000-gallon saltwater aquarium stocked with over 4000 tropical fish including sharks and jellyfish. And did I mention there are mermaids – real mermaids? Watch them swim with the fishes three times daily Thursday through Sunday. In addition, you can catch the stingray and fish feeding shows twice daily.

The Mermaid Restaurant & Lounge is 21 and over, which makes it a great venue for a low key couples night. The restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and the bar is open daily from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m.
