It’s not a well kept secret that prices in Vegas, especially on the Strip, have been on an upward trajectory. A bottle of domestic beer at a casino bar can set you back upwards of $7… That’s what a 12 pack should cost. Luckily, there are still places to grab a cheap beer or cocktail on, and within walking distance, of the Las Vegas Strip. We list some of our favorite drink bargains below!
Allegro at Wynn
Allegro offers guests unlimited Blue Moon and Stella draft beers for $25 between 3 and 5:30 pm on Saturday/Sunday. Additionally, wood fire pizzas can be had for $18 and up.
Bird Bar at Flamingo
The space formerly known as 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar at Flamingo features .50 cent beers from 5-6pm daily. The space’s decor is definitely.. unique… showcasing an assortment of birdcages and is certainly a departure from the former island theme that occupied the space. Check out the new theme and enjoy one of the cheapest beers in Las Vegas.
El Sagundo – Fashion Show Mall
From 4-7 pm daily, you can score cheap food and drink just north of TI in the Fashion Show Mall. In addition to discount food options, you can order draft beers for $4, Margaritas for $5.50 and Well Drinks for $4. Check out the entire happy hour menu here.
Ellis Island Brewery
Tucked behind Bally’s just off the Strip, Ellis Island is a diamond off the beaten path. The brewery at Ellis offers 6 permanent beers and a rotation of seasonal selections. The simple truth is that Ellis’ brewery produces great beer and at $2.50 for a 20oz. glass it’s a steal.
Stage Door Casino
On your way to and from Ellis Island, hit the grimy (we say that lovingly) Stage Door Casino directly behind Cromwell. Stage Door offers $1 Michelob or $2 draft Bud/Bud Light. If you’re hungry a 1/4 pound hot dog paired with a beer is $3.
It’s certainly not upscale, but if you feel out of place at the trendy, stuffy bars on the Strip, this could be your spot to grab an inexpensive drink in Las Vegas.
107 SkyLounge at The Strat
Offering half price beer, wine and cocktails from 4-7 pm in addition to an amazing view of Las Vegas from 107 stories above. Happy hour domestic beers will run $3.50 and import/craft options are $4.
The elevator ride to the bar is complimentary and you’ll be able to access the observation deck at no additional cost following your drinks. Check out the menu here.
Buffalo Wild Wings – Miracle Mile Shops
Happy hour runs Monday – Friday from 2pm-6pm and fires up again from 9pm – 6am. The deal features tall $3 Bud/Coors/Miller beers.
A cheap beer staple on the Strip for some time, Casino Royale had offered a $1 Michelob Ultra for years. Unfortunately, the price recently increased to $3 but includes a wider selection of domestic and imported bottled beer. Still a fantastic drink bargain in the middle of the action on the Las Vegas Strip.
In a great location mid-Strip, Cromwell features $2 vodka cocktails and beer specials from 9am – 8pm Monday through Friday. Weighing in at 11 consecutive hours, this happy hour packs a punch.
Ocean One – Miracle Mile Shops
Known for value offerings right on the Strip, Ocean One offers a “buy 1, get 2 free” deal on a wide variety of cocktails and wine. Additionally, Ocean One has a solid selection of draft and bottled beer that run $3 each. Easily one of the best drink deals in Vegas, and you wont have to leave the Strip.
Peppermill Las Vegas
Located just north of Wynn and Encore, Peppermill stands alone as one of the more unique bar/restaurant experiences in Las Vegas. Grab a half price beer/well drink during happy hour which runs from 3-6 pm and take a seat next to the indoor fire pit.
Lastly, don’t forget about the plethora of Walgreens and CVS stores popping up on the Strip as an option if you don’t mind taking your drink to go. If unfamiliar, you can walk the strip with a drink in hand legally and the price is right!
