Five50 Pizza Bar

Sorry Wolfgang — the new (unofficial) pizza king of Vegas is Chicagoan Shawn McClain. Fresh from Aria’s fancy-shmancy Sage, with James Beard awards in tow, this casual New-York-style-pizzeria-slash-hip-bar will satisfy even the biggest pizza snobs. Dripping with rich sauces, fine cheeses and the freshest-possible toppings, this is pizza to die for — from the basic margherita to the scrumptious truffle. Choose from an impressive selection of craft beers, many so rare you’ve probably never heard of them. Five50, by the way, refers to the best temperature to bake a pizza, as well as the time happy hour starts at the bar. So you know exactly when to arrive.
