Going out for dinner can get really expensive at Las Vegas restaurants, and selecting the right wine to complement your meal can make your head spin. This is especially true when you add the cost of a good bottle of wine to the bill, considering it may be almost twice the cost of what you would normally pay at a store. They may not even have your favorite beverage on the menu. That’s where the few BYOB restaurants in the Valley come into the picture. You can buy your own bottle (at a discount store, if you like), bring it to dinner with you and just pay for the $25 charge of corkage. It still isn’t inexpensive, but at least you will be able to enjoy your favorite beverage of choice without the restaurant’s cost. Not many restaurants of this type exist in Las Vegas because of the strict liquor laws, but those that still do offer this service are well worth the visit.
Little Buddha Restaurant Sushi Bar & Lounge
4321 W. Flamingo Road
Las Vegas, NV 89103
(702) 942-7778

Nestled in the beautiful Palms Resort and Casino, Little Buddha is truly an oasis in the desert. The attractive teal and deep red decor, with massive Buddha statues in each dining room, make you feel like a world traveler. This restaurant mixes Asian fusion and traditional Chinese cuisine in the most delicious way. Your bill may be extreme if you select a beverage from the wine, liquor and beer menu, so this is where the BYOB special pays full dividends. For a $25 corkage charge, you can bring in your own champagne, wine or sake (there is an extra charge if you bring in your own magnum) and imbibe in the beverage of your choice.

Table 10
3327 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 607-6363

Table 10 features world class cuisine with casual dining, somehow fusing this with a bit of a New Orleans flair. Housed in the stunning Palazzo, this is Emeril’s newest offering to the Vegas dining scene. The Food Bar allows you watch the chefs and sous chefs in action. A glass-shaded sidewalk cafe brings dining to the max with its lush view of the Palazzo atrium, a feast for the eyes. This restaurant definitely has a high-end dining experience with a relaxed BYOB policy. As always, corkage is $25 and the charge for magnums is slightly higher. Whether a romantic dinner for two or a gathering in one of the private rooms, Table 10 is definitely “win/win.”
