Cheap Drinks and Happy Hours on Fremont Street – 2022

While it gets tougher and tougher to find a good deal on the Strip, Downtown Las Vegas stands ready to welcome value-focused visitors with open arms. Resort fees downtown pack a lesser punch, parking is cheaper and food/drinks tend to be a better deal.

Where can you find a cheap drink or cocktail downtown? We thought we would compile a list of our top happy hours and all-day values on or near Fremont Street.

Note that happy hour deals change frequently. While we’ll do our best to keep this updated, we also link out to the specific deal so that you can verify the terms are still accurate before making the trip.

Downtown Las Vegas Drink Deals

Banger Brewing: The downtown craft brewery offers $2 off all beverages during their two happy hour windows of 1 pm – 3 pm and 10 pm – midnight daily.

The typical sticker price of a drink ranges from $6 (beer) to $10 – $15 for cocktails and wine. While not the cheapest drink on Fremont Street, it’s pretty cool.

More on how to get into the Mob Museum speakeasy here.

Nacho Daddy: While known for their scorpion shot, Nacho Daddy also offers a rotating selection of ever-changing drink deals at their downtown location. Current happy hour deals offered can be found by navigating to Nacho Daddy’s website and looking under “specials”.

Cat’s Meow: A karaoke bar found in Neonopolis, Cat’s Meow offers 2 for 1 drinks daily from 5 pm – 8 pm as part of their happy hour.

Downtown Cocktail Room: Right across the street from Hennessey’s Tavern in Fremont East, the Downtown Cocktail Room offers a “Halfy Hour” from 5 pm – 7 pm Tuesday through Saturday. As the name would suggest, the deal entitles you to half off everything in the bar.

The Smashed Pig: Also found on Fremont East, The Smashed Pig offers a happy hour from Wednesday – Friday from 4 pm – 6 pm. Notable items that are part of the deal include a $3 PBR, $6 red/white wine, and $6 well drinks in addition to a number of food items priced at $6.

Eureka!: Situated across the street from El Cortez, Eureka! offers a Monday through Friday “Hoppy Hour” from both 3 pm – 6 pm and again from 9 pm – close. A beer type, which will be noted on their sidewalk chalkboard will be available for $5. They also serve $7 wine, $8 cocktails, and discounted food during that time.

Le Thai: Although a Thai restaurant may not come to mind first when looking for cheap drinks downtown, Le Thai offers a unique selection of beers worth mentioning. Happy hour runs Monday – Friday from 3 pm – 6 pm and features $4 Tsingtao, $4 Chang, $4 Singha, and $4 Tiger. A selection of cocktails is also offered for as little as $6.

Triple 7 Brewery at Main Street Station: While there isn’t a current happy hour deal, Triple 7 serves $6 16 oz. craft beers around the clock. Upgrading to a 24 oz. beer will set you back only $7.50. Main Street Station and Triple 7 just reopened following a prolonged shutdown. We are hopeful happy hour deals return soon!

Lastly, and least glamorous: The cheapest beers you’ll find on Fremont Street can be had at one of the convenience/gift stores in the area. Pick up tall 16 or 24 oz. can for $2-$3 bucks and take it to go.

Just note that due to different open container laws downtown vs. the Strip, open containers technically need to be purchased from a Fremont Street bar and be in a plastic cup. According to the rules, you are not supposed to buy a can of beer and crack it open to go.

In our experience, however, walking with an open can of beer doesn’t usually get you into hot water if you are not being obnoxious.
