    Walking back from the casino to The Sofitel we called in for a beer. It was a nice, neat, and relaxing pub. Great selection of beers on tap and was nice and cold. Close to chinatown where we had lunch

    Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
    to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
    simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
