Japanese food is artistry on a plate and is often thought to be healthier and tastier than western cuisine, which is why people flock to restaurants like Koi. With locations in Los Angeles and NYC, Koi Las Vegas opened in 2007, and since then, it has been a celebrity hotspot. The elevated Japanese menu is a huge draw. It features traditional dishes like the fresh, rich, and flavorful sushi and sashimi – most of which is flown in daily from Japan and the Mediterranean – and signature dishes such as Crispy Rice topped with Spicy Tuna and Kobe Beef Filet Mignon. For those who don't like it raw, there is plenty of decadent fish, beef, lamb, and chicken entrees. All of Koi's food pairs well with hot Sake, the award-winning Yuki No Bosha, wines, and signature cocktails.
The Asian-inspired interior design and décor create a warm and inviting atmosphere, and the three buddhas greet guests as they enter. Koi offers incredible views of the Strip from the Fountain Dining Room, but the 30' sushi bar is the focal point of the restaurant with talented sushi chefs who put on quite the show and draw attention from the guests.
Koi was "founded with a mission of elevating food and hospitality to an art form," and it's obvious they have succeeded and after dinner the front room of Koi transforms into a Vegas Nightclub with open bar.

Bachelor Parties in Vegas
Vegas is a bucket list bachelor party destination and your last chance to wave goodbye before the impending nuptials. For Bachelor Parties, bottle service is the way to go; it affords you a level of privacy having your own designated section, especially if you want a space to invite Vegas girls back to hang out! Bundle your party plans with dinner and open bar deals, limo services, or a visit to Vegas' famous strip clubs. Consider booking some atmosphere models to help get the table started, as we know many of the "boys" may have been out of the game for a while.
If you're looking for a sophisticated spot for a bachelorette soirée before hitting the clubs with bottle service, and the bride-to-be is a lover of Japanese food, Koi is an ideal spot to start your evening.
It's good to be a group of girls in Las Vegas – whether you're looking to buy your own table or just looking to get into a party on the guest list and schmoozing your way to a table inside, you're almost always guaranteed a good time. Make sure you're taking advantage of everything Vegas has to offer its bachelorette groups! Bundle your Vegas Vacation with brunch and dinner deal options, open bar packages perfect for a pregame, or visiting a male strip club and some male revue options in the city!
We are a licensed Independent Host Company that works with all the top venues in the city, and we have a fantastic customer track record. The difference between hosts employed by the clubs and Independent Hosts is that we do not work for the clubs; we work for you; the customer. We offer ultra-reliable service, insider information, and always the best price. We can offer better deals and get better table locations than merely making a reservation online.

Koi is an upscale restaurant. It's an upscale restaurant so dress upscale. Dress smart, especially if you're going clubbing afterward. Men, no shorts or athletic gear. Check our Dress Code Guide for more information.
Before entry into nightclubs and bars, all guests are required to turn out their pockets (for ladies, they will look in your purse), submit to a metal detector test, and make sure everyone entering is not bringing in anything dangerous. It's equivalent to going through the TSA line at the airport. This applies to all guests, whether you are going in with a table or General Admission.
Pro Tip: If you purchased a table and some unwanted people wander in by accident, it is always best to have the security staff ask them to leave instead of doing it yourself to avoid potential altercations. In the event of a confrontation between guests, both parties may likely be asked to leave. Security has the final say on such matters.
Here are some things that you will be either asked to throw away or go back to your room to deposit before coming back:
Vapes – while weed dispensaries are extremely popular and vaping is in vogue, most venues will not allow vapes inside their premises. They will ask you to leave it in your room or, at the very least, throw away the cartridge inside, even if it isn't a CBD cartridge.
Camera equipment – the only recording equipment you are allowed to bring is the one on your phone. Digital cameras, selfie sticks, et al., are not allowed into the venue.
Prescription medication (or anything resembling pills) – if you need your prescription while inside the venue, you will have to bring the prescription and explain what the medicine is for; otherwise, expect to get pulled to the side.
Packs of gum – this only applies to day clubs, which tend to be a lot stricter about checking everything that goes into the venue, but guests have been known to try and sneak drugs inside packs of gum to get them into the venue, so expect to have your gum taken away at the door.
Oversized bags – anything larger than a lady's clutch will be denied into the venue. This applies to most backpacks, gym bags, totes, etc. While most hotels can hold onto your luggage at the bell desk
Exploring Las Vegas Final Word
One of the best things about the Las Vegas dining scene is the abundance of unique and innovative restaurants. Topping the list is Koi – an immersive, multisensory upscale dining experience that combines deliciously prepared Japanese food with a stunning atmosphere to match. The Koi Lounge open bar is a great pre-game for an extremely reasonable cost. Some comparable open bars include Señor Frogs, Chandelier Bar, and Coyote Ugly. We look forward to setting up your big night out.
