Hard Hat Lounge
While Industrial Road is known mostly for its strip clubs, Hard Hat Lounge has all the makings of a great dive bar, sans dancing girls. Plus they offer bonuses like open-mic comedy, a Hawaiian night every other week, and food from the “Smokillicious” BBQ counter.
The Best Sports Bars in Las Vegas
If you prefer a cozy dive bar vibe to watch any Raiders or Golden Knights game, the Hard Hat Lounge is your best bet west of the Strip. The place dates back to 1962, but is undergoing a refresh under new owners Frank Sidoris (a touring guitarist for Slash) and Robby Cunningham, whose in-house Guerrilla Pizza makes some of the best Detroit-style pies around. Regulars will be happy to know the hand-painted mural behind the bar, in place since day one, is sticking around. All draft beers are served in 22-ounce mugs (except specialty pours) and construction workers get a dollar off their drinks anytime. In addition to televised sports, the Hard Hat Lounge is planning on live music (both indoors and outdoors), karaoke, and tap takeovers by guest bartenders in the near future.
How to book: Just show up. Pizza can be ordered for pickup and delivery via Loco.
