Fabrik Fridays adds feminine flair to Vegas steakhouse

There’s something about the word steakhouse that sounds inherently masculine. Not to say that a woman can’t enjoy the heck out of a nice, juicy cut of steak. But the traditional steakhouse concept seems to exude testosterone.

Well, there’s very little that’s traditional about Vegas … and that includes the steakhouse.

Case in point: SHe by Morton’s. This elegant, modern steakhouse located in Crystals at CityCenter drips with femininity by incorporating fashion and entertainment into the fine dining, scrumptious steak mix. A 30-foot runway winds through the dining room. On a normal evening, sexy models are dancing around in lingerie while you dine on your delicious “she” cut, “he” cut or “we” cut.

And now on Fridays, known as Fabrik Fridays, those same lovely models are dressing up in trendy clothes by local designers and shops such as Molly Brown Swimwear, Eccoci, Coterie  and the PUNKY Collection to do their little turn on the catwalk. The fashion shows take place at 7, 9 and 11 p.m. and feature live sets by DJ Vixen, tasty fare including steak and seafood, and $9 Bacardi drink specials, such as Pink Lemonade or a Strawberry Basil Martini.

“It’s like dinner and a show,” says Carissa Villafana-Rowland, the restaurant’s general manager. “It’s not just for women. Men absolutely enjoy it. Even couples.”

I think we can all agree, this is not your father’s steakhouse. Though I’m willing to bet, he’d like it here too.

Yes, I’m from Las Vegas. But I’d like to clarify a few things: I don’t live in a hotel and I’m not a showgirl. I put my pasties on one nipple at a time, just like everyone else. I’m a regular girl who plunges off the side of ridiculously tall Las Vegas landmarks and writes about it for a living. I also ride roller coasters, hang at the spa, shoot holes in zombies and take art lessons from bottlenose dolphins. You know, normal stuff. My career as a journalist and copywriter has led me out of Vegas and around the world, but the 24/7 normality of Las Vegas sucks me back in every time. Am I oblivious to the plethora of slot machines everywhere I go? Sure. But that’s because I’m distracted by all the pretty lights. Follow me on Google+ and Twitter.
