Among our favorite things to do at Planet Hollywood are taking advantage of the numerous inexpensive food and drink deals in the Miracle Mile Shops. Below, are some of our favorites!
Ocean One Grille: The lunch menu makes Ocean One one of our favorite cheap places to eat on the Strip. Everything is $4.99, and for the price, portion size and quality are both wins. Seriously, items like their Half Pound Sirloin Burger, Chicken Tacos, Buffalo Chicken Wrap, and a selection of salads are that cheap. Adding to the value proposition is their neverending 3 for 1 deal on drinks. No, it’s not upscale, but Ocean One is a value seeker’s dream.
La Salsa Cantina: Looking for a cheap breakfast and a bloody? La Salsa Cantina has a $4.79 breakfast special that includes 2 eggs, a choice of bacon, ham or sausage, and southwest potatoes. Add a Bloody Mary for a mere .99 cents. Not bad!
Ketchup Premium Burger Bar: There is seemingly always a good deal to be had at Ketchup. Currently, they run a 2 for 1 hot dog deal on Tuesdays, 2 for one chicken tender deal on Wednesday, and offer a $5 Classic Burger Monday – Friday from 11 am – 3 pm.

Free Ranstorm Show: Found in the Miracle Mile Shops, the free rainstorm show fires to life at the top of each hour Monday – Thursday and every half-hour Friday – Sunday. Full disclosure, it just isn’t that cool, BUT, if you are in the area we recommend sticking around for a moment of zen.
Check Our The Tipsy Robot: Visiting a bar staffed by robots certainly qualifies as a unique thing to do at Planet Hollywood. The two robotic arms that work behind the bar at Tipsy Robot can concoct up to 120 drinks per hour and 1,440 per day. Guests dream up and order their desired cocktail via a tablet, and the robots get to work. A typical drink costs about $15, but stopping by to watch is free.
Grab a Craft Beer: Sin City Brewing Co. offers craft beer options ranging from a German Hefeweizen, to “The Dark Side of Sin”, an Irish Dry Stout. If you are anything like me, sniffing out a unique drink or beer is high on your list to do in Vegas, and you can do it in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood.
Find Remnants of Aladdin: As a Vegas history dweeb, I enjoy finding glimpses into Planet Hollywood’s past life as Aladdin, a Moroccan themed resort. See if you can find the lingering theming elements from the Miracle Mile Shops days as the “Desert Passage”.
Ride the FlowRider: Planet Hollywood’s rooftop pool deck is open to the public and offers views of surrounding resorts on the Strip. For $25, you can take a half-hour ride on the FlowRider, which is an infinite stream of water allowing guests the opportunity to surf on the Las Vegas Strip.
Get a photo with the Crazy Girls: As one of the most iconic photo opportunities in Vegas, the bronze statue that used to sit out front of Riviera is a can’t miss attraction.
