Proper dress....

What is proper dress at Top of the world and at Gordon Ramsay steak??? I am one of these people who def does not like getting all dressed up when I am on vacation. Just want to be comfortable! On the other hand I don't want to feel out of place or worse yet be denied entry because I am not dressed up enough. (wife would never forgive me)

Wear big-boy pants, not shorts, and a collared shirt and you will be fine for all but a handful of restaurants.

I will be eating there(Gordon Ramsey's) myself for my birthday on the 8th. I've been to some nice places to eat in Vegas and thought I should dress nice but I've seen people wearing shorts, t-shirt, & flip flops. You are in Vegas on vacation so no place seems to care what you wear except I think some night clubs. I've even seen girls in bikini's at a nice steak house in MGM. So this trip I'm not even bringing slacks. I'll wear some nice shorts, a polo shirt, & sandals. No one seems to care so why should we.

No one might care BUT IMO one get much better service all over Vegas from bars to Restaurants to gaming tables when one is dressed up slightly above the common denominator.

jeffrey, You may find this link helpful:


Open table suggests Business Casual for both of your restaurant choices. lasvegasrestaurants.com suggests Casual Elegant.

My husband and I would dress business casual for most restaurants, but as mentioned, more people like to be "comfortable" and more often than not, from what I've seen, it's the sort of clothes folks would wear to Putnam Walmart on a Saturday morning if you get my drift.

I definately like your comment about comfort being top priority. I feel the same way, I wear dress shirts and pants everyday to work, the one time I'm on vacay the last thing I want to do is choke myself again with the worst dress invention ever made; the tie. Money is the only thing you should be worried about in Vegas, shorts and sandals sounds like you're already better dressed then half the people there don't stress it. Your on Vacation not going to Work, Have Fun!

I think Tealie is right. Personally I feel plenty comfortable in business casual and I believe it does sometimes does make some difference in service.

Doing something as simple as combing that shoulder hair can go a long way.
