Pick of the Week

You don’t have to be a golf enthusiast to enjoy the newly opened Atomic Golf, but with such a large number of activities centered around the sport, it certainly helps.

Situated right next to the STRAT, the space covers four floors and encompasses 99,000 square feet, 15,000 devoted to golfing exploits. In addition to several hitting bays on different floors, a putting district includes three different games. Those who don’t prefer hitting balls with a club can try their hand at shooting balls from cannons aimed at targets.

Large screens throughout project sporting events and other programming. The venue is also used for special events, including concerts, which patrons can observe from the four levels of Atomic Golf. Art murals created by local artists from the ISI Group add to the fun.

If you are hungry during your visit, you are covered, as there is a top-notch chef in the kitchen: Robert Lomeli, who won the Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games and has worked in the kitchens of some of our city’s top eateries, including Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at MGM Grand and Top of the World at the STRAT.

The chef is turning out some quite tasty dishes such as Lollipop Wings that you can pull the meat off the bone (so you won’t get your hands messy), Sticky Ribs with a sweet & spicy glaze, and Paulie’s Pizza with salami and pepperoni sweetened with pepper jelly. He also has some unique, unexpected surprises like Lobster Popcorn—poached lobster meat in a beurre monté butter sauce topped with popcorn seasoned with piment d’espelette spice and truffle zest—and nachos made with fried chicharrónes instead of tortilla chips.

The first and only of its kind, Atomic Golf hopes to branch out to other cities by being a hit with locals. Atomic Golf supports local businesses through its self-serve Tap Room bar, which has a 100% local beer lineup of 15 beers you pour yourself.

Plenty of free parking and a convenient walkway from the STRAT leads directly to Atomic Golf’s doors. For more information on hours and pricing, visit
