5 Fabulous Places for Holiday Parties in Las Vegas Off the Strip

Visiting Vegas without dining out is like skipping the popcorn at a movie theater—it's too good to pass up

Whether you are entertaining guests or are visiting Las Vegas, many people prefer to skip the stress of cooking a holiday feast by dining out. Since Sin City offers a variety of both on- and off-Strip culinary experiences, it can be overwhelming for even the best event planner to decide where to eat.

From birthday blowouts to end-of-year celebrations, we’ve compiled a list of local restaurants (in no particular order) that welcome large holiday parties.

Rosa Ristorante

Henderson

The Las Vegas Strip isn’t the only area in town serving family-style, elevated Italian-American fare. Henderson’s Rosa Ristorante, helmed by culinary titan Executive Chef Rob Moore, is a cozy yet sophisticated restaurant equipped to entertain everything from holiday parties to family gatherings. With Moore’s prior experience commanding illustrious kitchens such as Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s on-Strip restaurant, it’s a sure bet that guests will enjoy every morsel of their meal.

Locals and visitors alike may enjoy sharing a lobster pizza or creamy rigatoni while pairing it with a glass of rich wine. Aside from the restaurant’s outstanding food reviews, it also boasts an impressive beverage program. The drink menu features both a variety of refreshing cocktails and an array of wines. Dine al fresco on the spacious patio or share plates while admiring the vivid artwork by feasting inside. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Triple George Grill

Downtown

During the early reimaginings of downtown Las Vegas, the Triple George Grill was one of the first independent establishments to debut. Since then, the award-winning restaurant has grown by delivering a great range of American-style seafood, steaks, pastas and daily specials. The restaurant’s catering team provides a classy experience for every kind of gathering, including group holiday parties. There’s also a Sidebar lounge that may be reserved for private events.

For family reunions or corporate celebrations, Triple George Grill’s offerings accommodate all guests’ dietary needs while still delivering delectable dishes. The charcuterie board and half roasted chicken are two perfect dishes for sharing, among others. Along with the copious amounts of food, the venue also offers special meals designed to correspond with programs at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Vegan and gluten-free options are also available.

Jade Asian Kitchen and Noodles

Summerlin

While Las Vegas is home to many outstanding Asian restaurants, not all of them have the space to provide enough elbow room for group dining. Enter Jade Asian Kitchen and Noodles, a hidden Vegas treasure inside the Rampart Casino in Summerlin. The sleek, long marble tables allow for groups to mingle comfortably while dining during the holiday season. For those who prefer outdoor seating, the restaurant has a terrace with a soothing waterfall.

As for the menu, the casual Asian eatery serves shareable appetizers like steamed edamame, plentiful plates of Chinese favorites such as Mongolian beef or chicken lo mein and even fresh sushi rolls. Guests may quench their thirst with cocktails, sake, wine, Japanese whisky or a refreshing mocktail from the bar. Jade is a surefire choice for tight-knit tribes looking for a dining experience with a zen vibe.

DW Bistro

Southwest Valley

DW Bistro has proudly served the Las Vegas community for 12 years now. Dubbed as one of the most original and popular off-strip restaurants, the eatery serves cuisine inspired by Jamaican and New Mexican flavors, attracting both locals and tourists. The website describes the ambiance as “a bright and inviting setting,” which is ideal for a festive group outing.

If you are considering throwing a brunch blowout, DW Bistro is known for its mouthwatering Chicken n’ Waffles dish, which was featured in Buzzfeed’s Best Brunch Spots. Similar to the aforementioned venues, this establishment also provides catering services. Whether dining out or ordering delivery, this favorable locale serves fresh meals packed with bold seasonings and unique twists on breakfast and brunch staples.

Golden Steer Steakhouse

Off-Strip

Although Las Vegas is a young city, Golden Steer Steakhouse has withstood the test of time. It started out as a small restaurant with a bar in 1958 but evolved into a posh playground for “Old Vegas” celebrity guests. Over the years, the steakhouse has served Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Joe DiMaggio, among other megastars of the Rat Pack era, according to their website.

How about the cuisine? Bon Appetit Magazine describes their steaks as “very, very good” and suggests ordering the tableside made Caesar Salad. So I think it’s safe to say that it is suitable for groups seeking the ultimate steakhouse experience with an “Old Vegas” charm. From the Alaskan Crab Cocktail to the 38-oz. Longbone Tomahawk Steak, classic Las Vegas steakhouse mainstays are what make Golden Steer legendary.
