Conceived by Las Vegas restaurateur Mark DiMartino, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery evokes Ireland by way of Vegas, with waitresses dressed in plaid mini kilts shouldering trays of chilled beer and pub fare. Like an enchilada stuffed with four-leaf clovers, the eatery’s Irish nachos interpret a south-of-the-border classic in a Celtic way, slathering potato chips in cheese sauce and seasoned ground beef; alternatively, pot roast and vegetables simmer traditionally in the Olde Dublin Irish stew’s Guinness-infused beef stock. Barkeeps pour a full bar’s worth of wine, cocktails, and beer, which surfaces in bottles, bombers, and multi-brew mixes such as the Blue Moon and Guinness combination. High-definition TVs glow with a ceaseless parade of professional and college baseball, basketball, and hockey, and live bands add to the entertainment smorgasbord on Monday nights.

The bartenders and servers at Cork N Brew Bistro bar and lounge pour an array of beverages that pair with small, Tapas-style plates. Diners can cook dishes themselves on a lava rock, a stone slab heated to 824 degrees Fahrenheit by an oven imported from England. The food itself arrives raw, allowing guests to prepare it to their desired level of doneness. Each cut of protein?such as sea scallops, filet mignon, or lamb tenderloin?is served with a side of house-made dipping sauce.

Inspired by a love of travel and the art of pairing food and drink, Cork N Brew Bistro has crafted a menu of flavors that blends seamlessly with a selection of old and new world wines and 22 craft beers. In addition to signature lava rock dishes, diners enjoy small plates of bar fare ranging from a hot baked pretzel nugget to a cured meat and cheese plate and a variety of flatbreads. On the weekends, live music adds to the lounge's atmosphere.

Amid a downpour of confetti, beams of laser lights, and the pulsing beats of a live DJ, partiers trip the light fantastic on a two-level dance floor at ZO Lounge. Designed as a respite from the daily grind, ZO Lounge couples its nightly music, which ranges from top 40 hits to live local artists, with specialty martinis, cocktails, champagne, and beer poured at two full bars. An adjoining outdoor patio offers fresh air and a more relaxed setting in which to mingle and socialize, though it remains in full range of the entertainment. Every night of the week, ZO Lounge honors a different theme, such as Old School Dance Party Saturdays and Techno Tuesdays, in which DJs spin dubstep and electro-house music while simultaneously fighting robots with their turntable needles.

The chefs at Taverna Skara never stray far from garlic, tahini, olive oil, and other quintessential Greek seasonings. Chilled dips, such as hummus, and warm appetizers, such as grilled haloumi cheese, kick off meals before waiters bring out rich entrees, such as pastitsio, which layers thick pasta, ground beef, and béchamel sauce inside a traditional clay pot. As diners sip Greek and Napa wines, they settle into blue pillow-topped banquettes beneath a mural of Greek figures draped in togas sewn from some of Zeus’s old curtains.
