He’s back! Bloody Elbow’s personal Las Vegas tour guide and lightweight free agent, Dominique Robinson has put together another comprehensive guide of all the best spots in Sin City. From the best steaks to the best place to get married and everything in between, Dom’s got you covered.

At the end of the feature, there is a list of Robinson’s sponsors with links that will also provide deep discounts on their services if you mention him. For now, sit back and enjoy the best that Vegas has to offer, courtesy of the Fallen Angel.

Best Steak Deal

Herbs & Rye Good ambiance, variety of classic cocktails, delicious food with half-off deals during Happy Hour.

Best Health Conscious Restaurant

Protein Source Recommended by my nutrition coach, they have a large selection of healthy foods, smoothies and juices to choose from. Great portion sizes in comparison to other health food competitors. Love their elk burger!

Best Show in Vegas

Tournament of Kings Underrated due to the big shows, like Cirque Du Soleil. This show is fun to go to with friends or family. Exciting crowd-involved show and they feed you at the same time.

Best Pool

Mandalay Beach Beach front pool, wave pool and they also host concerts during the summer. Great option to just have a good time, relax and swim without all the noise from a day club.

Best Nightclub

Omnia Brand new club by the Hakkasan Group at Ceasar’s Palace. World renowned DJs, celebrity guests and fun atmosphere. Definitely the new place to be for Vegas nightlife on the Strip.

Best Bottle Service Value

Hustler Strip Club and our new rooftop nightclub Fuso. Las Vegas bottle service can be very expensive, so it’s all about who you know. For great deals, in either our nightclub or the strip club, contact my manager Tri Villegas (510-461-3797) and she’ll put you in touch with me. If you’re down with Team Robinson, I’ll make sure you have a great Vegas experience without breaking your wallet, and I’ll get you and your friends set up with a VIP table, bottle service, and my personal favorite girls to accompany you and make sure you have an unforgettable night.

Best Hotel Value

If you don’t plan on being in your room often, just find an off the strip motel. If you’re looking for value and quality, go to MGM Grand. It’s the biggest hotel/resort in the United States. Everything you need is on the property and they have great deals for what you’re getting.

Best Local Bar

McMullan’s Irish Pub Best local bar in town. Great food, good prices on drinks, friendly staff and weekly live music.

Best Old School Casino

Golden Nugget Not your average dingy, older casino. Remodeled hotel/casino located close to several great bars and estaurants.

Best Tattoo Shop

Bad Apple Tattoo I know people that rave about this specific tattoo parlor. Not overpriced, like many shops here in Vegas and they have incredible artists.

Best Attraction

High Roller Located at The Linq; if you’re not afraid of heights, this is the attraction to do. Huge observation wheel (the world’s tallest) with an amazing view of the city.

Best Place To Get Married

Heavenly Bliss Chapel Not far from the strip and quite classy in comparison to most people’s idea of a quick Vegas wedding. Beautiful venue with photography and anything you’ll need for a wedding without all the usual planning hassle.

Best Slot Machines

Gold Fish Penny Slots Good pay out and located at most casinos on and off the strip.

Best Hole in the Wall Restaurant

Stacks & Yolks Awesome, small, local restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Great food, like their variety of pancake flavors and a cool place that anyone can go to, including famous athletes like Sugar Shane Mosley, Frank Mir and TJ Lavin.

Best Shopping for Fitness Gear

Not sure of local type places that I actually like. I usually just go to Sports Chalet because they have the biggest selection and best value overall.

Best Supplement Shop

Freddie’s Nutrition at the Flamingo Located close to the biggest gym in Las Vegas, LVAC, this store has online equivalent pricing, a huge selection of products and their staff is very knowledgeable.

Hotel with the Mostest

Cosmopolitan Located in City Center, this casino has everything you need for a good time. Energetic vibe, eccentric decor, nightclub, day club, concerts, shopping, restaurants and more.

Best Hotel to Watch a Fight

Lagasse’s Stadium at The Palazzo Excellent food, TVs to watch the fights, exciting atmosphere, Happy Hour with indoor and outdoor seating for groups.

Best Concert Venue

Brooklyn Bowl located at The Linq This venue has a great vibe. Good sized venue, but more intimate than going to a giant arena. They have a variety of musicians from smaller reggae bands to big staple artists like The Weeknd.

Best Sportsbook

Any casino will have a good sportsbook to bet at, but if you’re looking to avoid the crowds of drunk tourists placing bets, go to a more local casino, like The Palms or Red Rock.

Best Jewelry Store

Morgan Taylor Jewelers Variety of beautiful jewelry with great quality and a very helpful staff.

Also visit Dom’s sponsors RejuveniceValley Spine & HealthAverage BrozLas Vegas Auto Body, and Palmer Electric. All in Las Vegas and all sure to hook you up with deals if you let them know you’re with Team Robinson. Example: Rejuvenice gives 30% off (Rejuvenice is the Vegas leader in cryotherapy)
