When it comes to a night out in Las Vegas, dinner and a show are the perfect pair. For the price of one mere ticket, you experience the best food and the best live entertainment Las Vegas has to offer.

Sure, you could stumble through a never-ending list of a la carte restaurant and show choices until you’re ready to call it a night. Or you could book a dinner and show package…and get ready for a night to remember.

Here are 7 dinner and show packages that are perfectly paired for a night out in Las Vegas.

Le Rêve – The Dream Dinner & Show Pairings
Why limit yourself when Wynn Las Vegas offers you multiple choices for dinner and a splashy show. You’ll dine on a chef-selected three-course meal at Allegro, Cipriani, Costa Di Mare or Jardin, or dinner at The Buffet, and attend the resort’s resident production Le Rêve – The Dream. Which dining experience will you choose? Chef Enzo Febbraro’s Italian American favorites? Fresh coastal seafood from the Mediterranean? Worldly flavors at 15 live-action cooking stations? The answer is almost as suspenseful as the Le Rêve, an aquatic and acrobatic fantasy adventure in-the-round.

Encore Theater Dinner & Show Pairings 
Like the Wynn Theater, you also have a choice between handful of dinner pairings for headlining performances like Diana Ross and John Fogerty or limited-time engagement such as Lionel Richie, Ali Wong, Smokey Robinson and Sebastian Maniscalco in the Encore Theater. Along with specialty menus at Allegro, The Buffet, Cipriani, Costa Di Mare and Jardin, Encore enthusiasts may also opt to indulge in dinner and a view at the lovely Lakeside.

NoMad Restaurant Pre-Theater Menu
Considering its proximity to the Park Theater inside Park MGM and the T-Mobile Arena just beyond its doors, the folks at NoMad Restaurant would be mad to say “no” to a little pre-theater dinner action. The grand American restaurant from Chef Daniel Humm and restauranteur Will Guidara offers a three-course theater menu on concert and sporting event days with items like Kanpachi Ceviche, Wild Salmon and NY Strip Steak. Standing ovations are accepted for dinner and the show.

Lady Gaga Pre-Show Menu at Best Friend
A hop, skip and a jump away from the Park Theater entrance inside Park MGM, Chef Roy Choi’s Best Friend offers a notable pre-show menu for Grammy and Academy Award-winning superstar Lady Gaga’s Las Vegas residency (with dates through 2020). You and your best friend (or mortal enemy – we’re not judging) will enjoy a nightly amuse-bouche with two choices of KBBQ (Kalbi, Spicy Pork, Garlic Chicken, BBQ Veggies, BBQ Shrimp), the chef’s nightly Banchan selection for the table, Kimchi friend rice and dessert.

For details, call 1-888-ROY-CHOI.
