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.
So where can you find a cheap drink or cocktail downtown?
I thought it would be helpful to compile a list of the top happy hours and all-day values on or near Fremont Street.
Note that happy hour deals change frequently. While I’ll do my best to keep this post updated, I’ll also link out to the specific deal so that you can verify the terms are still accurate before making the trip.

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, making the larger size a no-brainer.
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 my experience, however, walking with an open can of beer doesn’t usually get you into hot water if you are not being obnoxious.
