Introducing ProPoker, the world’s leading automated poker tables. Having just reopened the poker room this September, the Plaza has the only all electronic poker room in Downtown Las Vegas . The games offered are Texas Hold ‘Em, Omaha Hi and Hi/Lo, 7-Card Stud Hi, Hi/Lo, and Razz. Games can also be No-Limit, Limit, Pot Limit, Spread Limit betting.
Great for beginners
Poker Room Manager David Cardenas explains that the electronic poker tables make it easy for a beginner to learn the game. If a player only has played a few games at home, but wants to make the transition to the casino floor, these electronic poker tables are a great way to make the that move.
The electronic tables are set up so that no mistakes can be made. The table keeps the games running smoothly for everyone. It keeps track of everyone and players must play only when it is their turn. This way the emphasis can be on fun! Games play much faster too. The electronic poker tables also offer the ability to do things that just cannot be done during a manual poker game. Players can track and look at their previous hands in a game. Also, because there is no dealer, no need to tip and the rake (casino’s cut of the pot) is smaller! Games and buy-ins are also lower than manual, dealer lead games.
Tournaments and Specials
The Plaza offers a unique poker experience that is not offered in other Las Vegas casinos. Players can reserve tables, and book parties in the Plaza poker room. Also, every morning at 10am are tournament games. The buy in is only $22! Specials are offered regularly so bring a group of friends and stop in and check out the Plaza poker room today.

When you walk into Oscar’s Steakhouse you know you are in for a very
special night. The bar has an old Hollywood class with modern
decorative charm. Monday through Friday from 4pm to 6pm is happy
hour at Oscar’s. Select drinks and appetizers are half price. So make
sure to come in a little early and have a cocktail in the swanky bar
Exceptionally Good Food
You will see when you enter the dining room; it seems designed so that
anywhere you sit you get a spectacular view of the beautiful light show on the
canopy over Fremont Street. It may seem like common sense to order steak
in a steak house and at Oscar’s this would be a great choice, it is the best
steakhouse in Las Vegas after all! Though, they do also have great pork
chops and seafood dishes that are equally as delectable. There is really
something for everyone at Oscar’s. The ‘made for scratch’ sides are served
family style and are fun to share with your dinner companions. A must try is
the Jose Leonardo’s Roasted Corn Brûlée. It is creamy and is the perfect
complement to every entree on the menu.
Perfectly Sweet Ending
Make sure you save room for dessert. A favorite among many is the
chocolate mousse. It is creamy, delicious and the perfect way to end your
meal. There are other great desserts at
Oscar’s like crème brûlée, cheese cake and chocolate cake with
caramel sauce. Oscar’s Steakhouse is not just about great food, it is
about an experience. Great food, great ambience, and great service.
Like Oscar says “My expectations aren’t that high for my place… just
the best food, the best service, the best ambiance and the best
broads.” Come in and eat at the best steakhouse in Downtown Las
