Atomic Liquor

Atomic Liquors, 917 Fremont Street, about a 3-minute walk from the El Cortez Hotel downtown is the oldest freestanding bar in Las Vegas. Originally founded by Joe & Stella Sobchik in 1952, Atomic Liquors boasts the 1st package liquor license and off-sales permit. Atomic, named for a time when customers watched atomic blasts from the roof, was originally built in 1945 and was called Virginia's Cafe. As the story goes; Joe was tired of cooking food, and the customers seemed more excited about sampling his secret ingredient 'Atomic Cocktails' while watching the nuclear blasts from the nearby Atomic Test Site. So in 1952, the couple renamed the business Atomic Liquors, constructed a classically huge, wrap around bar, and built a one of kind landmark neon sign that still shines today. In 2012 a group of investors led by longtime Downtown Las Vegas Attorney Lance Johns purchased the Atomic from the Sobchik's son, Ron, and remodeled it to it's original glory. Like much of old time Vegas, Atomic has showbiz in its veins - The Rat Pack and the Smothers Brothers drank here after their nightly shows, and Barbra Streisand even had her own seat which has been restored and is on display.


  • Aureole
  • 3950 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, NV 89119map
  • 702-632-7401

Although it's the largest city founded in the 20th Century, Las Vegas retains the energy of a frontier town where the unexpected is still a daily occurrence. The dining scene is equally as adventurous and Charlie Palmer is one of its trail blazers. Sensing that Vegas was about to undergo a renaissance, Palmer made an early investment, opening Aureole in the Mandalay Bay Resort in 1999. The show stopping menu under the direction of Executive Chef Vincent Pouessel combines the classic cuisine of Aureole with the theatricality of Las Vegas in dishes like Olive Oil Poached Oregon Petrale Sole with Truffled Brussels Sprouts and Ahi Tuna and Veal Shank "surf and turf", while a four-story, temperature controlled glass and steel wine tower-- the largest in the world; houses 10,000 of Palmer's award-winning 50,000 bottle list, made accessible by an elaborate pulley system presided over by "flying wine angels" clad in black spandex Calvin Klein. After all, this is Vegas.

Badlands Golf Club

Pure golf isn’t about pomp & panache. It’s not about elitism, knickerbockers or glitz. It’s about conquering 27 holes as designed by Johnny Miller & Chi Chi Rodriguez. It’s about the unhinged game and the grit to beat the course. It’s about communing with the desert through its canyons, arroyos, and washes. It’s about you getting that ball to the green. It’s about pure golf.

Balboa Pizza Company

From surfers to restaurateurs, the opening of the Balboa Pizza Company is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. "We named this place with fond memories of growing up on the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach, California" says Jeffrey, who along with Pete, David, Jonathan and Frank co-founded the Balboa Pizza Company. "It was after a long day of surfing that we got a little nostalgic and made a pact to never lose touch with each other. We vowed to someday open a restaurant with great food and drinks where we could hang out just like we used to in Balboa." Although Balboa Pizza Company is far from the beach, the founders have done a great job recreating the Balboa beach lifestyle with awesome food and drink, cool surfer tunes and a laid-back beach atmosphere. "We've brought in everything but the sand!" notes Pete. Now the Henderson, NV restaurant is a lifelong dream realized. "Stop by and we can toast the sunset together and talk about the waves." adds David.
