It’s no secret that costs in Vegas, particularly on the Strip, have been steadily increasing. At a casino bar, a bottle of domestic beer can cost upwards of $7… That’s how much a 12-pack of beer should cost. Fortunately, there are still spots on and around the Las Vegas Strip where you can get a cheap beer or beverage.
We’ll go over some of the most popular drink specials and happy hours in Vegas below!
Keep in mind that happy hour specials can change at any time and without warning. We try our best to keep up with changes, but you should always check the linked menu to be sure the offer is still valid before making the trip!

On the Las Vegas Strip, Happy Hour Deals
Malls and shopping complexes, rather than casino bars, are your best bet for getting a good deal on drinks on the Strip. Both the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood and the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian are usually packed with bargains, as you’ll see below.

Blondies, located in Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops, offers all-you-can-drink wells and domestic draught beers for $20 from 3-6 p.m. and 9 p.m. to Midnight Monday through Friday. Blondies is one of the top sports bars in Vegas because of the amount of value it provides.

Other Notable Drink Specials on the Strip Tropicana’s Trago Lounge: As part of this bargain, Trago will serve $5 draught beers from 4 p.m. until midnight on Fridays and Sundays. Although most people’s to-do lists don’t include the ageing Trop, this offer is fairly good by Strip standards.
Margaritaville at Flamingo is currently running an all-day, every-day happy hour with $4 Bud Light draughts, $5 well drinks, $8 house margaritas, and $3 off snacks.
Hard Rock Cafe (On the Strip): Not to be confused with the previous resort & casino off the Strip, the Hard Rock Cafe offers happy hour from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Monday. Beer is $1 off, well drinks are $5, and wine is $6.

Casino Royale: For years, Casino Royale had offered a $1 bottle of Michelob Ultra, a cheap beer mainstay on the Strip. Unfortunately, the price has lately raised to $3, although the assortment of domestic and overseas bottled beer has expanded. In the heart of the excitement on the Las Vegas Strip, this is still a superb drink deal.
Slots A Fun (immediately south of Circus Circus) offers $1 draught beer and $1 hot dogs, despite its decrepit appearance. While you’re there, try your luck at the Strip’s only genuine coin slots.
Buca di Beppo at Excalibur: Throughout the day, Buca di Beppo’s bar offers an all-day happy hour with $6 wine and $5 draft/bottled beer selections.
Peppermill Las Vegas: Located just north of Wynn and Encore, Peppermill is one of Las Vegas’ most distinctive bar and restaurant experiences. During happy hour, which runs from 3-6 p.m., get a half-price beer or well drink and take a seat near to the indoor fire pit.
Finally, if you don’t mind taking your drink to go, don’t forget about the plethora of Walgreens and CVS stores springing up all over the Strip. If you’re unfamiliar, you can legally walk the strip with a drink in your hand, and the price is reasonable!

Drink Specials Just Off the Strip
Brewery on Ellis Island: Ellis Island, tucked behind Bally’s just off the Strip, is a gem off the usual road. The brewery at Ellis has six regular brews as well as a rotating assortment of seasonal beers. Ellis’ brewery makes excellent beer, and a 20oz. glass costs only $2.50.
OYO: Located behind Tropicana, OYO is just steps from from the Strip. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, they have $2 bottled beer (Bud Light and Michelob Ultra).
Hit the filthy (we say that lovingly) Stage Door Casino immediately behind Cromwell on your route to and from Ellis Island. $1 Michelob or $2 draught Bud/Bud Light are available at Stage Door. If you’re hungry, a 1/4 pound hot dog and a beer will set you back $3.
It’s hardly fancy, but if you don’t feel at ease in the trendy, stuffy pubs on the Strip, this could be the place to go for a cheap drink in Las Vegas.
