As part of the Palms' nearly $700-million renovation, the hotel did away with beloved N9NE Steakhouse and transformed it into Scotch 80 Prime, a place that basks in its 21st century aesthetic. The gold-accented, dark-wood room is at once intimate yet opulent, surrounding you with works by Damien Hirst, Basquiat, and Andy Warhol, though Scott Hove’s frosted cake–inspired art installation will catch you by surprise when you stumble upon it. (Hint: It’s not in the dining room.) Many steakhouse classics are done exceptionally well, but as far as beef goes, the chef-recommended cap of rib eye is where it’s at. As for drink, this place is called Scotch 80 Prime, so whisky is a must. If you don’t take it neat, then try it from the cocktail cart, where your custom Manhattan or old-fashioned is made tableside, with whichever luxurious brown spirit moves you.
