Cocktails and misbehavin’ were a pretty good match, which lead to some delightfully retro bars that perfectly capture the speakeasy atmosphere of the prohibition era.
Is it possible to get tired of the same old rooftop bars and nightclub scene when in Vegas? If you’re looking for some bars off the beaten strip, we’ve put together a list of the top speakeasy bars in Vegas and no you can’t walk out with one in a slurpee cup.
1. The Golden Tiki
This 24-hour tiki bar can be found in the heart of Chinatown, hidden among a row of shops in a strip mall.
2. 365 Tokyo
This quiet, members-only cocktail club seats just 10 people at a time, and can be found upstairs at the Inspire art and entertainment complex.
3. The Laundry Room
Taking the bar-within-a-bar concept to a new level, the Laundry Room can be found inside the walls of Commonwealth, and was once the laundry facility of the El Cortez hotel across the street — hence the name.
4. Herbs & Rye
Herbs & Rye offers great steaks that are half-off if you come during happy hour, and an impressive mixology program that’s a favorite among the industry crowd.
5. 1923 Bourbon Bar
Look carefully near the entrance to the Shoppes at Mandalay Place, and you might find this secret drinking spot tucked in the corner, next to RM Seafood, with a door disguised as a liquor pantry.
6. Downtown Cocktail Room
Inspired by the urban drinking scenes found in cities like New York and Seattle, the Downtown Cocktail Room opened about 10 years ago, during a time when people cared more about bottle service than master mixology in Las Vegas.
In true Roaring ’20s fashion, you’ll be asked for a password by a voice behind a small window at the front door.
8. The Paiza Club
The Paiza Club is designed to fulfill every need — no matter how extravagant — for the high rollers staying at the Venetian or Palazzo.
9. The Dillinger
This bar and restaurant is admittedly more of a neighborhood hangout than a hidden gem, but definitely borrows a sly speakeasy attitude — starting with the name alone.
10. The Study
Rose. Rabbit. Lie. is a fun restaurant that has great food, in-house performers, and a lounge/theater area that is currently empty, but is set to welcome Absinthe in 2017.
Old Forester is aged in-house for 40 days with dry cherry, vanilla bean, and orange peel — and used to give their signature Old Fashioned a nice subtle sweetness.
Bar Prohibition! celebrates that spirit with a menu of classic cocktails served indiscreetly in coffee mugs — just like they would back in the day, when boozing was done on the sly.
