Cheap Drinks & Happy Hours on the Strip

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 $10… That’s what a 12-pack should cost!

Luckily, there are still places to grab a cheap beer or cocktail on, or within walking distance, of the Strip.

Bear in mind that happy hour deals can change frequently and without notice. I’ll do my best to stay on top of changes, but recommend clicking through to the linked menu where applicable to confirm the offer is current before making the trip!

Happy Hour Deals on the Las Vegas Strip

When it comes to finding drink deals on the Strip, malls tend to be your friend as opposed to casino bars. As you’ll see below, both the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood and Grand Canal Shoppes at Venetian are chock-full of deals.

Drink Deals in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood

Blondies Sports Bar & Grill – Miracle Mile Shops: If you can throw ’em back, Blondies has a drink deal for you. Located in Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops, Blondies serves all-you-can-drink wells & domestic draft beers between 3-6 pm (Monday – Friday) for a mere $20.

The sheer amount of value provided by Blondies qualifies it as one of the best sports bars in Vegas.

Cabo Wabo – Miracle Mile Shops: From 3 pm – 5 pm Monday – Friday, Cabo Wabo at Planet Hollywood offers a rotating selection of drink deals.

Warning: Cabo Wabo tacks a scammy 4.85% “CNF Fee” onto every bill.. which is a fee… for nothing in return to every check.

Aztec Inn Casino: Across the street from STRAT, I recently stumbled across a sidewalk sign at Aztec Inn advertising:

  • $3 draft beer
  • $5 well drinks
  • $7 bloody marys

Now, I’m not sure if these drink deals are offered around the clock, or at specific times. Either way, Aztec Inn is likely a decent bet for a cheap drink whenever you’re in the neighborhood.

Drink Deals Steps Away From the Strip

Ellis Island Brewery: Tucked behind Horseshoe 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. Ellis’ brewery produces great beer and at $4 for a 20oz. glass, it’s a steal.

Stage Door Casino: On your way to and from Ellis Island, hit the grimy (I 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.

Not much to look at, but the beer is cheap!

Rick’s Rollin’ Smoke BBQ & Tavern: Owned by Rick Harrison of Pawn Stars fame, Rick’s Rollin’ Smoke is located at Pawn Plaza, it’s a ways from the action on the Strip (next door to Gold & Silver Pawn).

  • $5 wine
  • $5 well drinks
  • $6 16oz. craft beers
  • $10 signature cocktails.

Fans of the show should know that Rick makes frequent appearances and even tends bar.

RPM Italian has, IMO, one of the best Happy Hours on weekdays from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. A nice selection of drinks and food options in a beautiful setting. I also think that RPM is one of the best Italian restaurants in Las Vegas for their exceptional service, quality of food, and reasonable prices.
