Food, drink and art is a great combination and Las Vegas offers bars and restaurants featuring artwork for those wanting to blend culture with cuisine. One place combines pop culture in art and entertainment while offering sophisticated drink choices. Another place offers live music as a way to enhance art and drink. Family restaurants also add original artwork to its walls for children and their parents to embrace artistic expression. Southern Nevada features this mixture of dining, imbibing and expression on the Strip, downtown and in residential areas for all to enjoy.
