Best of the City 2013

Best Community-Supported Agriculture

Quail Hollow Farm has prevailed over the harsh growing conditions and meager profit margins that have kept Southern Nevada from jumping on the CSA trend in a significant way. Only about a half-dozen of these co-op farms, which deliver food to paying members on a regular basis, are thriving here. Among them, Quail Hollow is Read More

Best Downtown Revamp

There’s the elegant porte cochere where the grimy lot and sketchy valet stand used to be at the Golden Gate Hotel. Inside the revolving doors—where the old deli once cranked out those little shrimp beauties—is the brand-new lobby with the minimalist-swank vibe of a big-city boutique Read More

Best Place for Human Landscaping

Some come for the precision, others for the comfort. But let it be known, a few of the Box Human Landscapers regulars return simply for the homemade truffle potato chips. Whatever the case, the hair-removal salon continues to build a cult following—one that’s followed Box to its new location, in Tivoli Village.

Best Theater Venue

Without getting bogged down in the “size matters” debate, let’s just say that big, satisfying things happen at the small, cozy Onyx Theatre. Over the years it’s given us alternative pleasures, including Naked Boys Singing and a female Hamlet. This year alone saw a fabulous Sweeney Todd, a sterling One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and an engrossing The Laramie Project. Don’t forget the numerous specialty shows—stand-up comedy, improv, burlesque and cabaret. All this in an intimate, 100-seat box of a Read More

Best Nonsurgical Cosmetic Procedure

At Just Face It MedSpa, Martine Abbey’s clients don’t go under the knife for smoother skin; they go under the “roller.” Micro-needling is an hourlong procedure that sparks collagen production via micro-needling—done with a prickly little instrument that gets rolled over your skin. Skin remains red for about three days, but the quality of the epidermis vastly improves with each treatment—depending on the imperfection (such as acne scarring, hyper pigmentation and scar tissue build-up), every six weeks is Read More

Best DJ Booth

Las Vegas has a number of rad DJ booths. But what makes Marquee the best is its sum of its audio-visual parts: a pulsating 40-foot LED wall, an integrated stage that turns go-go’s into choreographed dancers while face-melting subwoofers tickle your skin as you inch closer. The icing on the cake? The booth is raised just enough to offer celebrity-DJ-demigod proximity and easy viewing from most angles. Forget Las Vegas—this is one of the most epic DJ booths in nightlife, Read More
