Part of the casino empire started by magnate Bill Harrah in the 1930s, Harrah's is one of the oldest resort-style casinos in town. While some of the newer casinos have sharper decor or attract bigger showroom acts, Harrah's delivers a self-contained experience that can be perfect for dedicated gamblers or folks who'd rather not go hiking down Virginia Street in the heat of summer or snow of winter.
Recipient of the Mobil Three Star Award and rated a AAA Three Diamond hotel, the 928-room Harrah's offers seven restaurants, a 60,000-square-foot casino, convention space and a full spa and fitness center, as well as nightspots and concerts.
Current nightlife options include the hip Sapphire Lounge at Harrah's Reno. Geared toward the 25-and-up set, the club offers a variety of cocktails made with the best liquers and an array of concoctions, ranging from the Sapphire Signature drink to micro brews.
In the showroom, Greg London's ongoing show "Iconman" finds the impressionist working out his musical demons with numbers from Michael Jackson, Ozzy Osbourne and everyone in between.
The top restaurant is the Steak House at Harrah's, billed as the only "fine dining" restaurant in Reno to receive a AAA four-diamond rating. From rib-eye to surf and turf, no matter what cut you choose, you won't be disappointed. Other restaurants include:
Andreotti's, an authentic Italian restaurant, features an open kitchen where you can watch chefs prepare specials such as braised veal and crusted orange roughy. There's also an extensive wine list and quality dessert menu.
At Ichiban Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar, chefs prepare sizzling steak, lobster, shrimp, scallops, chicken and more right at your table, or you sample the all-you-can-eat sushi and tempura bar. Also look for the all-new Carvings Buffet, a Starbucks and more.
