New to the Neighborhood

The Southwest has a new bar and lounge that walks the line—between bar and restaurant, that is.

Part eclectic eatery, part martini bar and gaming lounge, Straight Up recently opened its doors in hopes of providing locals a new place to party away from the Strip.

The kitchen serves up a range of food, including queso camarones, Hawaiian burger bites and potato pancakes, in addition to more standard staples and a kids menu.

The bar offers 15 video poker machines, and weekly promotions include “Martini Monday” ladies night, Taco Tuesday, daylong happy hour on Wednesday and Wii Sports on Sunday night. 4970 S. Fort Apache Road at Tropicana.
