Sphere Area (Off-Strip)

10 Listings

The brand new Sphere is more than a concert venue. It's become Las Vegas' hottest new tourist attraction, wowing locals and tourists alike with the always-changing images and videos it shares with the valley. People are drawn to it -- whether they're there to see a U2 show, take in the immersive movie "Postcards From Earth," or just find the perfect angle for a great photo. While several nearby Strip casinos (The Venetian, The Palazzo, Wynn, Encore) have tremendous restaurant collections, you don't need to venture onto Las Vegas Boulevard for a great bite or a good drink. The bars and restaurants on this list are all located in Sphere's backyard.
