Downtown Cocktail Room

Las Vegas
Cocktail Bar
$$$$

The entrance to this cozy, bohemian speakeasy isn’t as obvious as it may seem: enter Downtown Cocktail Room through a steel door that isn’t the one under the sign … mysterious we know. The drink menu is diverse and inventive with options ranging from pints of beer to custom cocktails like Sir, Mezzy Have Another (made with mezcal, banana, beer, and a cinnamon twist) and Mr. Bull’s Morning Joe (made with tequila, sherry, coffee liquor, and topped with whipped cream. You can even build your own Buck (just choose the spirit, the ginger beer, and the garnish). Just to give you an idea, they've offered over 300 different cocktails since opening. There is no kitchen here, but they let you order in from Flippin’ Good until 9pm, a burger and shake joint down the road that serves up typical greasy American finger foods.

The greatest happy hour deal in Las Vegas happens every single day Downtown Cocktail Room is open (Tuesday through Sunday) from 5 to 7 pm. They call it “Halfy Hour,” and it’s exactly what it sounds like: half-off everything. Half-off every single expertly made cocktail on their fairly extensive and always inventive seasonal cocktail menu, as well as half-off everything else (beer, wine, straight booze, traditional absinthe pours, etc). This happy hour is hardly a secret but it’s still the best-kept secret in Vegas despite being right off Fremont Street. Also, their cocktails slap.

Part of the Fremont Street bar scene long before the area's recent resurgence, the Downtown Cocktail Room often enjoys "best-kept secret'' status, thanks in part to a trick door that's hard to open on the first try. The team of mixologists here are more like mad scientists, coming up with a rotating list of 10 drinks that change with each season. A few classic drinks stay on the menu year-round, and the deep selection of absinthe is served in two-ounce pours. Be sure to check them out during "Halfy Hour,” when everything is half-off. For a more intimate experience (read: the bar is very small and the crowd very local), seek out the even-more-secret Mike Morey's Sip 'N Tip, located in the back of the bar.
