Although there are many options to choose from, in this article today we have compiled a list of some of the top rated best theme restaurants  in the whole Las Vegas area. The list includes the restaurant's location, a Yelp review, a summary of the restaurant's style, and even a convenient link to the restaurant's website in case you want to order takeout or just want to preview the menu before you go in person.

What’s a GiftYa?

Virtual GiftYa Cards make the perfect gift for loved ones and for anybody who likes to explore the city or travel. These virtual gift cards can be sent and received within seconds from the GiftYa app or website.

The virtual gift cards are as easy to send and can be purchased for nearly ten thousand different merchants and businesses. You can personalize the gift message, and send it directly to your recipient’s phone, all within seconds. 

GiftYa’s digital format provides not only a speedy delivery but also a convenient way to store and maintain different gift card balances. You don’t need to worry about having that particular gift card for that particular establishment on that particular day because your balance can be linked to any of the cards you carry on you every day anyway. 

Now that that’s out of the way, check out our list of top best theme restaurants  in Las Vegas Nevada below, including several that accept GiftYa!  

The Laundry Room

Sip Carefully Crafted Cocktails in Las Vegas’s Secret Speakeasy

525 E Fremont St | Downtown | laundryroomlv.com

In Vegas, you’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants that promise to kick things up a notch, but none of them do it quite like The Laundry Room. With strict rules, limited reservation room, and a hidden entrance, The Laundry Room pulls off the speakeasy theme with more authenticity than any other joint in town.

Reservations of 2-4 people are required to get in, but once you’ve gotten inside you’ll be transported to another time with the cozy decor and delicious cocktails. Order from the menu, or have the barkeep craft something unique based on your flavor and texture preferences. 

You can’t check social media to get a look inside, either – photos are prohibited in the bar, so if you want to see what all the hype is about, you’ll just have to visit for yourself!

“I am never one to be short on words. The Laundry Room experience did a great job of leaving me with very few words to describe the amazing "speakeasy" vibe! It is located in downtown Old Vegas off of Fremont Street.” - Yelp Review
