Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse just opened at Flamingo Las Vegas and in addition to its wonderful steakhouse menu, we love how it takes us back to Old Vegas.

Bugsy & Meyer’s Captures Old-School Cool

The name refers to Flamingo founders Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and business partner Meyer Lansky. But the nods to Vegas’ good ol’ days don’t stop there.

Guests enter through a faux bakery facade, passing through the kitchen and meat coolers to the dining room. It feels like you’re “in the know,” and being taken through a secret entrance.

From there, you can access the patio and lounge, center bar, raw bar, main dining room, or the speakeasy, a.k.a. The Count Room.

As you’re seated, you can take in a vibrant interior inspired by the art deco movement. Cool, wildlife-themed art, including a beaded flamingo that took 100 hours to build, makes Bugsy & Meyer’s stand out among Vegas steakhouses.

A Closer Look at the Bugsy & Meyer’s Menu 

And then, there’s the food. The menu is a modernized throwback, with cuts like in-house dry-aged steaks, domestic prime, imported wagyu and more.

Other highlights include a selection of prime rib roasts, American wagyu short ribs, pan-roasted lamb loin and fresh Dover sole meuniere.

On that note, insiders know that great seafood is implied at all the best steakhouses. Bugsy & Meyer’s is no exception to this rule. Surf lovers would do well to bunker down at the raw bar and dig into eats like the premium shellfish towers, shellfish cocktails, or crudo.

When it’s time for dessert, The Big Apple is a rich crowd-pleaser with a white chocolate yuzu mousse, caramelized apples, soft caramel, and hazelnut café crumble.

Drink in Style at The Count Room Speakeasy

If you’re following your meal with cocktails, head over to The Count Room.

This cocktail bar was named for an area where all a casino’s money was counted… and perhaps other things happened to some of it. Or so we’ve read.

The Count Room’s cocktail list combines some fresh new cocktails with Prohibition-era mixology.

There’s an emphasis on rum in the cocktail list, leaning into the era’s Caribbean connections. One rum-based delight is The Jungle Bird (Cruzan blackstrap rum, Campari, pineapple juice, lime juice, simple syrup with a pineapple wedge and leaf). If you want to keep things simple, you can build your own Old Fashioned.

Bugsy & Meyer’s is absolutely dripping in style and has everything you could look for in a classic steakhouse, so if you’re looking to have a special night out with a lot of variety, this is one spot that’s sure to please.
