What are some options for getting a small group together for dinner? We asked Las Vegas-based Baskow and Associates, a destination management company, celebrity/talent broker, event planning, and speakers bureau, for five of their go-to spots off the Las Vegas Strip. Here's what they suggested.

Sake Rok
A theatrical hot spot that thrills guests with more than just its array of delicious sushi, Japanese cuisine, and private-label sake. By night, Sake Rok (pictured) transforms into a high-profile social dining extravaganza, immersing guests in an experience part culinary, part performance, and completely unexpected. Nightly, DJs pump up the jams with party music. Accompanying the music are sporadic choreographed theatrical vignettes and dynamic digital content. 

Del Frisco's Las Vegas
Del Frisco's in Las Vegas offers elegant dining just steps from the Strip. From its memorable James Bond Table to rich mahogany dining rooms, Del Frisco's follows the tradition of grand steak houses in true Las Vegas style. Featuring eight private dining rooms, including its stunning wine cellar, this is a standout Las Vegas steakhouse serving top-quality meats and seafood along with fine wines. 

Hugo's Cellar
A warm and classy atmosphere awaits at this gourmet restaurant, reminiscent of Las Vegas the way it used to be. Ladies are greeted with a long-stemmed rose and the classic old-style Vegas menu features a table-side salad included with all entrees. Meals end with table-side flambéed desserts and complimentary white-and-dark chocolate-dipped strawberries, apricots, and figs. A private room accommodates approximately 20, and the restaurant is available for buyouts. 

NM Café, Las Vegas
Groups can enjoy a meal at one of Las Vegas' most fashionable shopping destinations -- Nieman Marcus -- by stopping at this eatery for lunch. This casual, contemporary setting provides amazing views of the Strip through wall-to-wall windows or outside from its shaded terrace. An innovative menu features American-Mediterranean cuisine. 

Cili Restaurant at Bali Hai Golf Club
Cili Restaurant encapsulates the essence of the South Pacific, with a menu of regional American cuisine infused with Thai and Asian, prepared with fresh ingredients. Meals are served amidst exotic foliage and white-powder sand, and private event spaces are available for groups ranging from 20 guests to 1,500.
