Beat Coffeehouse & Records

Beat Coffeehouse & Records

Sure, Las Vegas is more a liquor town than a coffee town (exempting the ubiquitous green mermaid of a certain chain), but a city that stays up all night has to get its caffeine fix somewhere. It’s a sure bet that we have some of the best cafés and coffee shops in Las Vegas that rival any other city’s. You just have to know where to look.

For the early risers, the aptly named Sunrise Coffee has just the right jolt. This local gem is located in a nondescript strip mall by the airport, but once you get a fix of its organic and fair trade coffee sourced from single-estate farms and handcrafted by highly skilled baristas, you’ll keep coming back for more.

Unless, of course, you find yourself on the other side of the Valley in Summerlin. In that case, ground yourself at Sambalatte Torrefazione. With five methods to deliver the goods—French press, vacuum brew, Chemex pot, AeroPress and single brew (pour over)—this coffeeshop is more than just a lounge for caffeine junkies; it’s a veritable mecca worthy of a pilgrimage, with more locations on the way. And Downtown’s Beat Coffeehouse & Records has quickly become an institution, with excellent joe, good eats, vinyl and live music.

Beat Coffeehouse & Records

  • Critics choice

Part coffeehouse, eaterie, bar, vinyl record store and music venue, the Beat is Las Vegas’s epicentre for all (anti-establishment) things Downtown. Local musicians play on the stage-less floor at the front of the store, while their fans and friends spill out on to

Spago

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

The Wolfgang Puck eaterie that reinvented Vegas dining in 1992, Spago has managed to stay smart with tourists and power-lunchers by regularly reinventing itself. And although Spago may have its detractors (as does anything in Las Vegas that’s more than five years

Verandah Café

  • Rated as: 4/5

Outfitted in everything from suits to tennis shorts, rock stars, real-estate magnates and other sundry types find this comfortable California country club-styled spot irresistible. The under-promoted yet popular Sunday brunch is an all-you-can-savor treat, putting

Florida Café

  • Rated as: 3/5

A rather scruffy-looking motel at the wrong end of Las Vegas Boulevard provides the unlikely setting for the most popular Cuban restaurant in Las Vegas. This isn’t subtle food, by any means, and nor is it especially healthy. But don’t let that stop you—as comfort

Jaleo

  • Rated as: 4/5

It’s loud and fun, and a visit to José Andrés’ tapas restaurant can feel like sitting alfresco at a streetside café in Madrid. Jaleo is located on the third floor of the Cosmopolitan—that’s the prime people-watching area of the city’s hippest casino—and

Paymon’s Mediterranean Café & Market

  • Rated as: 3/5

Long before the idea caught on, Paymon Raouf was serving the kind of ethnic food that the college crowd adores. Even now, when so many Middle Eastern restaurants have opened in Vegas, the Med still wins out, simply because its kebabs and salads are better than anyone
