The Mob Museum is a cool place to learn about Vegas' obsession with organized crime and comes with a fully operational speakeasy in the basement. While it feels like a natural continuation of the exhibits on the upper levels, the Underground is the real deal and stays open long past museum hours. Hang out in the main room, where live music plays on weekends, or score a seat in the private VIP area, hidden behind a wall and lined with authentic artwork from the Roaring '20s. Most of the drinks are based on recipe books from the Prohibition-era, like a Southside Gin Mojito or an Old Fashioned served in a glass flask from a hollowed-out book. An in-house distillery serves up some light-bodied corn-based moonshine, so ask for a shot on the side. Check the online schedule for the latest specials and tasting events.
How to get in: The Underground is accessible through the museum itself or from a quiet entrance around the corner. The latest password is listed online, but expect to get in, regardless of what you say.
