Las Vegas is a 24-hour city, which means you could be hungry anytime. Fortunately, there are plenty of late-night dining options.

It has often been noted that Las Vegas is a city without clocks. The time one eats, sleeps or goes to work—whether tourist or local—all often comes down to your personal clock. Fortunately, this is a 24-hour town. If you’re hungry for lunch at 2 a.m., Vegas has got you covered.

Located in the Cosmopolitan, Clique Bar & Lounge is a relaxed yet chic spot for a bite and a cocktail before or after the evening’s action. Plates are designed to be shared, and Clique’s food often turns a twist on familiar dishes. The vegan sliders are as good as, if not better than, the carnivore options, and the deep-fried Oreos, a typical Fremont drunk food staple, become a delectable pastry.

The Crown & Anchor British Pub has been serving UNLV students, UK expats, and beer lovers of all stripes since 1995. The bar has 30 beers on tap, from Harp and Guinness to Old Speckled Hen and Dogfish Head. There’s a traditional Sunday roast beef dinner with Yorkshire pudding, and the fish and chips are among the best in the valley. Crown is also known as a big football hangout, meaning you can occasionally walk in at 4 a.m. on a Tuesday and find it packed with screaming fans.

It’s not hard to find El Dorado Cantina—just look for the massive Sapphire gentleman’s club. El Dorado serves upscale Mexican food in a setting with high leather booths and star-shaped lamps. The tableside guacamole is popular, as is the ever-changing array of tacos. Everything El Dorado serves is organic, but since this is Vegas, there’s also 24-hour breakfast.

The Peppermill may be Las Vegas’ most popular late-night dining option—as well as its favorite hangover breakfast spot. The restaurant is decorated in tones of purple with a very ’80s vibe, and the plates of food are so enormous that tourists take photos of them as though that basketball-sized fruit salad is as incredible as the Hoover Dam. Whether you fancy a crab cake benedict, ciabatta pesto burger, chicken-fried steak or strawberry shortcake, the Peppermill has it—with enough for leftovers tomorrow.

This Chinatown staple hops all day, but especially late at night. Pho Kim Long serves Chinese and Vietnamese food. The pho is popular with after-midnight diners, as are their salt-and-pepper chicken wings and crab Rangoon. Strong Vietnamese coffee will keep you going until you get home—whenever that is.
