After being closed for more than two years, the famed Palms Casino Resort returned to Las Vegas this past April. The new owners, California’s San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, have begun to deliver on their commitment to restore the casino to its former glory. The reopening of Scotch 80 Prime, a renowned Las Vegas steak house, has visitors savoring divine chops and seafood just like the old days. The extensive whiskey and wine portfolio is a major draw as well.
For patrons new and old experiencing the high life at the Palms, a visit to this revitalized steak house is a must-have dining experience after hitting the craps or blackjack tables. The chophouse is a quick jaunt from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, and Scotch 80 Prime comes with a bit of Vegas history tied to its name. The original Scotch 80 was built on 80 acres of land purchased by the city’s first mayor, Peter Buol, in the early 1900’s. The name derives from the initial Scottish investors who were key in getting the planned development launched. The neighborhood eventually featured some of Vegas’s most lavish homes. Howard Hughes, Jerry Lewis and former mayor and mob attorney Oscar Goodman and other notable people have called the area home at various points.
The revamped design is classy throwback, and showcases an ornate bar and rich wood textures. Fine art is also highlighted throughout the establishment, adding to the high-end ambiance. A signature expansive window offers a brilliant view of the historic Flamingo Road.
The menu features wood grilled prime, dry-aged steaks from American ranchers, Japanese-certified Wagyu steaks, and the finest sustainable seafood. There’s no denying the steak tartare, mouth-watering filet mignon and succulent lobster exceeds expectations as well.
Of course, a great Scotch whisky is always a nice addition. You’ll have a million dollar selection at your fingertips, and the vintage wines and cocktail creations offer endless possibilities.
Order a fine drink, experience the elite service, order that perfect steak and relish in the “something old, something new” aesthetic of Scotch 80 Prime. palms.com -Sean Chaffin
