Budget-conscious travelers love 4 Queens for being a stalwart champion of value in a city that seems to be moving away from it. With hotel rooms already on the low end of the price spectrum, 4 Queens doubles down by being one of the last remaining Las Vegas resorts not charging a resort fee. In addition to being known as a bastion of value for those watching their wallets, the property remains popular due to it’s vintage feel, location, and activities offered.
Things To Do at 4 Queens
Silver Strike: Among the 3 Las Vegas casinos that offer Silver Strike slot games (El Cortez and Plaza being the others), 4 Queens has the largest selection of machines with 12 in operation on our last visit. For those unaware, Silver Strike slot games kick out a collectible Silver Strike token when the Silver Strike icon aligns with the pay line. Those tokens at 4 Queens carry either a $10 or $40 face value redeemable for cash, but we can’t bring ourselves to cash them in.
Grab a drink with a view: People watching is among our favorite things to do at 4 Queens, as the collection of humanity on display is akin to a train wreck that is difficult to look away from. 4 Queens’ Patio Bar offers guests access to the cocktail of their choice with a view of the crowd milling past. The bar wraps around the exterior of 4 Queens which can offer great views of the 3rd Street live entertainment stage.
Craft brews at reasonable prices: Chicago Brewing Company serves up their line up of craft beer at palatable prices. While you can score a 14 oz. for $5.75, or a 22 oz. for $6.75, we would recommend starting off with their 9 flavor sampler which runs $12 and will educate you on your options. Chicago Brewing also serves up good food at a reasonable price. While you can view the whole menu here, our go-to are their pizzas which cost $9 for a 10″, and $14 for a 16″.
Tip: Swing by for Chicago Brewing’s happy hour which runs from 4 -7 pm daily and also from 11 pm – 1 am Sunday – Thursday. Deals include $2 off draft beers and $3 off 10″ pizzas.
