In 2020, Las Vegas has welcomed not only a new year but a new era for the iconic hotel and casino. With a $100 million renovation, the Stratosphere becomes The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod. The STRAT is everything you’ve always loved about the property, plus new additions and updates that have us visiting more often than ever.

When we think about the best Las Vegs views, most romantic restaurants, and thrilling attractions, we are always thinking about The STRAT. We love sharing the Las Vegas Strip with The STRAT, and now we have seven more reasons to be excited.

Check out all the news updates and additions, and be sure to add The STRAT to your must-visit list!

What’s New at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod?

The Observation Deck

Where can you find the best view in Las Vegas? Admittedly, we’re lucky to have a few places, but The STRAT might be the crowning jewel of Las Vegas views! This view just got even better thanks to the addition of 108 Drinks and 108 Eats. Did we mention there’s now ice cream? Is there anything else you could want?


Top of The World

Don’t miss one of the most iconic and award-winning restaurants in Las Vegas. We’d like to imagine that the Top of the World restaurant spent a day at the spa, and is feeling quite refreshed. Event the menu got to partake in the update. Check out their new takes on steaks and seafood complemented by fresh, seasonal ingredients.


BLVD & MAIN Taphouse

Who doesn’t want to kick back with a craft brew and catch the next game? Lucky for us, BLVD & Main Taphouse is just the place to do it. Complement your beer of choices with elevated pub fare and enjoy (not just an LED screen but) the LED wall. You can find BLVD & Main Taphouse near the main entrance.



Celestia is genuinely out of this world entertainment.
