Whether you’re a local or are visiting, here is a list of black owned restaurants in Las Vegas where you can show your support.
This is just one of many ways you can stand with the Black community, and today on Local Adventurer, we’re highlighting local Black-owned restaurants in Las Vegas (you can also see our post for Atlanta).
We’ve been asking ourselves how we can be better allies. Earlier this week, we tried to look online to see if there was a good resource to share but didn’t find anything up to date, comprehensive, or easy to use, so we decided to do a little leg work and call to make sure they’re all open.
Note: We listed the phone numbers since it’s a rapidly changing situation with how COVID19 has affected businesses. Business hours can even change day to day so call and ask before you go. We also wrote some notes if there are restrictions, like curbside pick up or take out only.

- Call ahead before visiting any of these spots. We made notes where we could but hours may still change day-to-day. Some restaurants told us they close early if there isn’t enough business that day. Plus, some places aren’t open for dine-in quite yet.
- Masks are recommended when visiting these spots. When we visited one restaurant, they required a mask to enter. They sold them there, but it’s always good to have your own.
- Since we’re still in this pandemic, it’s important to wash your hands thoroughly and try your best to socially distance while dining in.
- Help us keep the list up-to-date. If you find out any info that we can add, or include any additional restaurants, email us at [email protected]
