The Best Happy Hours in Your Las Vegas Neighborhood
A guide to scoring the best deals.
Las Vegas seems to be in a readjustment period. As we rebound from the pandemic and face an employment shortage, some of our favorite bars and restaurants are taking a new approach with happy hour. Some run longer. Some are shorter. A few are tweaking things with smaller menus. Regardless, food and drink discounts are still out there to enjoy in Las Vegas. It's not quite like getting something for free, but it could be the next best thing. So here's a neighborhood by neighborhood guide for tracking down the best happy hours in Sin City. Keep in mind—deals are subject to business fluctuations and can change at any given time.
Backstop Sports Pub
When: Daily 3–6 pm
The deal: Boulder City's favorite dive bar dates back to 1931, when the nearby Hoover Dam was under construction.

The deal: One of the best cocktail bars in Vegas serves one of the best happy hours in Vegas. In addition to drink discounts, guests could take advantage of half-price steaks (steaks!) 5–8 pm and midnight to close Monday–Saturday. However, just like sister restaurant Cleaver, the deal was recently extended to all hours of operation. No word on how long that deal will last.

108 Eats & 108 Drinks
When: Monday–Thursday 3–7 pm
The deal: The new SkyHigh Happy Hour on the 108th floor of The Strat has a two-for-one deal that applies to signature cocktails, bottled beer, and wine as well as admission to the SkyPod viewing deck.

Pizzas, wood-fired in a custom oven, are $7-10.

Enjoy $10 flights of Bloody Marys and mimosas 9 am–12 pm, beer and wine 12-3pm, and cocktails 3–6 pm (plus $2 shots 6 pm to close). Keep in mind, while three cocktails at one time sounds like a lot, the portions are on the smaller side and some of the drinks are pre-batched. Still, it's a great deal compared to typical Strip prices.
When: Daily 9 am–8 pm
The deal: Need a little more time? The casino lounge at the Cromwell has a long happy hour geared toward day drinkers with vodka cocktails and beer for $2 each. (And if you're not drinking a martini at 9 in the morning, you're not doing Vegas right.)
When: Tuesday–Saturday 5–7 pm

When: Daily 11 am to 7 pm

Rockhouse has a long happy hour with $5 domestic drafts (Michelob Ultra, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Bud Light) and well cocktails (or 2 for $8), $8 frozen daiquiris, 30% off beer buckets, and $65 100-ounce cocktail bowls. No, that last part isn't a misprint. Ask for the South of the Border—a giant margarita with Patron.
When: Monday–Thursday 4–6pm and Friday 3–5pm
The deal: The Cosmopolitan's stylish steakhouse has a fun happy hour to match its party vibe. Take a break from the restaurant's typical family-style servings and save on smaller dishes with a "7 items for $7" menu, featuring miso-glazed Chilean sea bass, Lil BRG sliders with truffle fries, and beef tartare. Specialty cocktails are half-off, while glasses of Justin Cabernet and Whispering Angel Rose are $10.
When: Sunday–Thursday 4–6 pm
The deal: Almost everything is good for sharing during Social Hour: the $6.75 giant pretzel, $8.50 Reuben-style corned beef egg rolls, and a $9 trio of beef tacos.

Al Solito Posto
When: Daily 4–6 pm
The deal: The new Italian restaurant by James Trees is fast becoming one of our favorites in Las Vegas. Happy hour is in the bar only with a selection of small bites between $5 and $10. Don't leave without trying the ribcap and halloumi cheese skewer or sausage-wrapped olives.
Echo & Rig
When: Tuesday–Friday 4–6 pm
The deal: The Tivoli Village steakhouse has "happiest hour" with $3 hot dogs, $4 steak and egg, and $5 Butcher Fries (french fries tossed in filet tips and teriyaki sauce) with half-off drafts and well drinks.
