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.

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

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 Sunday. 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.
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.
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. Note: Triple 7 is currently closed.
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.
