Las Vegans enjoy discounted, after-work bites and libations as much as the next guy, but the options aren’t as prevalent in our Valley as you’d guess. In fact, Las Vegas is a notoriously stingy happy-hour town. But Table 10 chef de cuisine James Richards is hoping to create a happy-hour haven with the new Snack Bar. Hidden away past the bar at the back of the restaurant is a shorter bar peering into the open kitchen. These seats allow for interaction with the chefs, while Richards oversees an ever-changing menu with no rules: Emeril Lagasse’s infamous candied bacon; duck confit-strewn popcorn popped in duck fat; deep-fried rabbit tenders seasoned so well they’ll make your Southern grandmother shed a tear of joy; and Duroc pork burnt ends. “We just want the food to be really fun and very shareable,” Richards says. When a dish is gone for the evening, it’s scratched off the board and done for the night, so eat early and eat often.

Table 10 Palazzo, 702-607-6363. Snack bar menu available daily from 5 p.m. until it's gone.
