“The Smith Center and downtown restaurants go hand in glove. You can go to a restaurant, have a nice dinner and drinks and then head to The Smith Center in time to see a great show. After the show, you can even make it back to the restaurant to cap off the night.”

The Smith Center is fortunate to be located at the heart of the thriving Symphony Park development in downtown Las Vegas, where patrons can find numerous hospitality and entertainment options for the whole family. The Smith Center team remains committed to supporting the downtown community and helping to bring people together for enjoyable experiences.
