Boasting two stories tall, the all new classic steakhouse features a warm inviting atmosphere, complete with a tavern like open concept bar and lounge, located off the promenade level, just steps away from the South Canal Turnaround. The upper level features an impressive wine wall and a peek-a-boo view into the proprietary dry-aging butcher room; intimate 18 seat bar outfitted with mirror hidden televisions; a luxurious lounge complete with leather tufted booths and Lincoln chairs; and an intimate all glass private room overlooking the bar and promenade; complete with several private dining rooms that are fully equipped with state-of-the-art A/V accommodations allowing for groups from 40 to 500.

Guests can enjoy over-the-top steak and wine experiences featuring renowned USDA Prime steaks and signature filets produced by Double R Ranch, hand-butchered and further enriched through in-house dry aging for 28 days, such as a 46 oz. porterhouse steak and a specialty 10 oz. coffee and cocoa rubbed filet, as well as premium seafood and award-winning wine lists, served with unparalleled hospitality for the ultimate Vegas steakhouse experience.
