The hip shake and burger spot, Black Tap, located inside The Venetian, is a vegan-friendly restaurant. Don’t get too excited though — they don’t have their Instagram-worthy milkshakes in vegan varieties … yet.
But, Black Tap does have vegan dishes to enjoy while you’re omni friends suck down cake-laden, sprinkle covered shakes.
You can start your meal with one of two vegan appetizers (or both) — chips and guacamole or crispy brussels sprouts with a sesame tahini sauce. We’re partial to the sprouts.
In November 2019, Black Tap upped their vegan game, adding more options to their menu.
They kept the Vegan Burger, a black bean patty with vegan mayo, pickled onions, salsa verde and cilantro.
And, they kept the vegan burger and quinoa salad which comes with kale, cucumber, pickles and onion and is topped with salsa verde and lemon dressing.

With the nixing of the falafel option, they added the Vegan Nashville Hot, a breaded and fried portobello mushroom soaked in Nashville hot sauce and topped with slaw and pickles, stuffed in a potato bun.
Our favorite dish is The Impossible All-American featuring a thick, juicy Impossible patty with special sauce. Please note — this burger is not vegan as is — it comes with dairy cheese on it. You need to request it vegan and it can be done with zero problems.
Other vegan options at Black Tap include the teriyaki broccoli, french fries and sweet potato fries.
Rumor has it Black Tap is working on some decadent vegan shakes, too. Regardless, it’s a viable vegan options inside The Venetian and also boasts a pretty epic patio facing The Strip.
