New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas: Where to Dine Off the Strip

Feast your way into the new year while celebrating at these local restaurants

With at least 300,000 festive vacationers expected to visit, Las Vegas is a popular tourist destination for New Year’s Eve celebrations. Parties will emerge throughout the city to ring in 2023, but for a more casual commemoration, there are also several restaurants serving up end-of-year holiday deals.

All around the world, different cultures eat traditional new year dishes. For example, many societies eat noodles to symbolize a long life, while other societies eat pork to attract good luck. Las Vegas encompasses a growing culinary collection offering global cuisines for all celebrants seeking to honor their heritage at end-of-year parties.

From digging into a downtown barbecue buffet to drinking glittery brews from a prominent taproom, here are 15 ways to bid farewell to 2022.

SoulBelly BBQ

For mouthwatering smoked meats paired with hometown artisan brews, head on down to SoulBelly BBQ. The Main Street regional barbecue joint located in the 18b Arts District will be offering a full buffet accompanied by live entertainment performed by rock and soul musical group Frankie Lee and The Infernos. When the clock strikes twelve, guests may clink glasses for a champagne toast to celebrate the new year.
