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.
Triple 7 Brewery at Main Street Station: Triple 7 serves $2 16 oz. / $3 24 oz. Craft Beers as part of their happy hour which runs Mon- Fri from 3-6 pm and again from 11 pm – 3 am. Additionally offered are $4 cocktails, $3 Jag shots, and food deals.
Banger Brewing: The downtown craft brewery offers $5 draft beer from 6 pm – 9 pm daily from both their 1 pm – 3 pm and 9 pm – 11 pm happy hour windows.

The Underground Speakeasy: A unique speakeasy experience at the Mob Museum, a happy hour is offered Sunday – Thursday from 5 pm – 7 pm and offers guests $2 off all beer, wine, and cocktails. 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.
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.
