To have a good time in Las Vegas, you need to find a good place to experience happy hour. After a long day walking around the city, there is no better way to relax than hanging out in a good bar for a few hours. Ideally, the place you choose will have cheap drinks, fun entertainment, and a generous food selection. Here are some of best happy hours on the Las Vegas strip that satisfy all three of those requirements.
Diablo’s Cantina at Monte Carlo: Home to a massive, multi-level entertainment center, Diablo’s Cantina is the place to be at happy hour on the Las Vegas strip. Happy hour runs from 3pm to 7pm every day and has a loose, low-key atmosphere that anybody can enjoy. Drink specials for $3 are changed every half hour based on where the ‘Wheel of Sin’ lands.
StripSteak at Mandalay Bay: If you’re more interested in experiencing some of the exquisite food that Las Vegas has to offer, check out this fine dining restaurant for happy hour. The steak and seafood is high-quality and completely natural, while the produce is fresh. During happy hour, beer is $3 per bottle and cocktails are $7, while everything on the lounge menu is half price.
Nine Fine Irishmen at New York-New York: You don’t necessarily have to lose sight of the Las Vegas Strip in order to experience happy hour. Nine Fine Irishmen has two patios which offer a wonderful view of the entire strip. And, like any good Irish pub, they have wonderful drink and food specials. Happy hour runs from Sunday to Thursday, and includes famous Irish food like Steak & Stout pies, or beer and cheese dip, for only $6.
Aureole at Mandalay Bay: Founded by famous chef Charlie Palmer, the Aureole is one of the finest places to eat during happy hour in Las Vegas. And, with two for one specials on all appetizers and drinks during happy hour, what’s not to like? There is one catch: happy hour only runs from 5:30 to 7pm.
Firefly: One of the most popular places for locals to experience happy hour is Firefly, which offers drinks for the low price of only $1. However, there is a reason that this is called the “Beat the Clock” happy hour: the drinks get progressively more expensive as the afternoon wears on. So, while all beer, wine, and cocktails are only $1 from 3-4pm, they rise up to $4 by 6-7pm. Arrive early to get the most for your money. Firefly is also known for its ‘seven salty snacks’, which are a perfect way to whet your appetite in preparation for a night on the town.
Chicago Brewing Company: If you’re the kind of person who appreciates a good craft beer, try checking out Chicago Brewing Company’s happy hour, which offers drink specials on all of its specialty draughts. However, you will have to wander off the strip to get there. 60oz pitchers are only $6.00, while all microbrews are $2.50. They also have a decent selection of food. And, of course, if beer isn’t your thing, they also have a selection of cocktails and other drinks to keep you happy.
Blondies Sportsbar and Grill: You may be able to get the most for your money by experiencing happy hour at BlondiesSportsbar and Grill, which offers a $20.00 all-you-can-drink special between 3 and 6pm. Voted as the best happy hour in Las Vegas by Maxim magazine, Blondies is one of the best party spots on the Strip. The only question is, how much can you drink in three hours?
Almost everywhere you look on the strip, you will be able to find a happy hour that will quench your thirst and satiate your appetite.
