Finding late-night bites on the Strip

Your post-club fourth meal doesn’t need to be Taco Bell

Central’s crunchy fried chicken is a good idea at any hour.

South Strip

Had your fill of Hakkasan or Light and need a night-closing bite? We keep going back to Citizens Kitchen & Bar, where there’s something for everyone, anytime you want it. A monster stack of pancakes with bananas and brown butter maple syrup? Check. Velveeta-chorizo dip for group snacking? Done. A full-on prime rib dinner? No problem. Whether you keep the party going or shut it down with a serious food binge, this menu is your friend. 24/7, Mandalay Bay, 632-9200.

Center Strip

Maybe only Pure crowds have discovered that Central is one of the city’s top 24-hour restaurants. Feel free to make your own discovery any time. The crunchy fried chicken is famous, the super-thick burger and goat cheese Caesar salad are unlike any versions you’ve tasted, and the after-hours menu boasts meatloaf, a 16-ounce ribeye, and a half-pound of Alaskan king crab legs. This might be the restaurant of your post-club dreams. 24/7, Caesars Palace, 650-5921.

North Strip

Wynncore clubbers have the advantage of the near-legendary Tacos El Gordo within stumbling distance, and the always-open and always-retro Peppermill is just a few more paces away. But for something a little more soothing (when you might need it most), saunter in the other direction and find Noodle Asia right next door to the Venetian’s sports book—seriously underrated Chinese food from funky (spicy beef tripe and jellyfish salad) to familiar (barbecue pork fried rice). Daily, 11 a.m.-3 a.m., Venetian, 414-1444.

  • It’s the Strip’s latest manifestation of the casino three-mealer, but it’s no utilitarian 24-hour coffee shop.

  • It’s stocked to the brim with goods, and it also features made-to-order Laotian and Thai specialties.

  • Shockingly good smoked brisket, vegan chili, pie babies and more.
