Asian design elements take over the space and the restaurant is dotted with gilded Buddhas, temple bells and hand-carved Indonesian doors. Black ceilings and dark tables create a sleek interior while candles exude a dim flicker and the Fountain Room allows a tourist-free view of the Bellagio water show and the Strip through floor-to-ceiling windows. The lounge accommodates nearly 100 people and is separated from the restaurant by a bar where the DJ booth is nestled between narrow tiles of Indonesian onyx and marble.

Favorites include a baked lobster roll ($22) and grilled Chilean sea bass ($29), toro sashimi ($42) and a full sushi menu.

Koi Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, 3667 Las Vegas Boulevard South; 702-454-4555. Open Sunday-Thursday, 5:30-11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 5:30 p.m.-midnight.

Las Vegas nightlife players are cashing in at The Bank, Bellagio's new nightclub. At just two months old, one of the Strip's hottest New Year's Eve destinations is attracting a glamorous crowd with a yet another level of exclusivity. The Light Group, the same management team behind Jet and Caramel Lounge, has even embedded luxury into The Bank's structure with bottles of Cristal lining the walls from floor to ceiling and a Champagne bottle light fixture. In an effort to set itself apart from Sin City clubs that cater to the masses, The Bank cultivates a more intimate — by Las Vegas standards — and elegant setting in an 8,000-square-foot space comprising a foyer and main room.

While sipping on cocktails served by gold-clad waitresses, guests can float between dancing on the illuminated glass floor and lounging in the luxe VIP booths.

The Bank Nightclub at Bellagio, 3600 Las Vegas Boulevard South; 702-693-8300. Open Thursday-Sunday, 10 p.m.-4 a.m. Admission is $50. Bottle service also available starting at $475.
