From the red walls to the billowy white curtains to the vases that you really want to but definitely shouldn’t touch, Red 8 is one of the classier late-night options in town. At the same time, this Chinese spot in The Wynn manages to be really comfortable and casual so there’s no need to worry about being too loud or whether you’ll feel out of place in whatever you show up wearing. Get the oxtail soup and the spicy pork dumplings to wake yourself up before getting at least one order of pumpkin dumplings - you’ll find yourself telling people at home about them as frequently as you tell that story about riding The Strat’s Big Shot.
