When you step into Rosina’s, you can’t help but instantly think of the Great Gatsby. This Prohibition-style speakeasy at the Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas, transports you back into time as you enjoy one of their deliciously-made cocktails.

2. The Dorsey

The Dorsey is a sleek cocktail bar/lounge at the Venetian Hotel that serves up some of the best drinks in America. Seriously. It’s only been around since 2016 but the New York Times has already labelled their Penicillin cocktail as one of the 11 essential drinks of the “Modern Cocktail Revival.”

With such high praise for a cocktail, you must get that while you’re here at The Dorsey.

3. The Chandelier

The Chandelier is known for their giant two-million crystal chandelier that hovers from the middle of the bar. This lounge is spread out over three floors and the bartenders here are known to creatively infuse foams, garnishes, and purees into the cocktails.

Ask the bartenders here for a cocktail recommendation and marvel at the largest chandelier you’ll ever see.

4. The Golden Tiki

Located in a very unassuming strip mall in Chinatown and away from all the bright lights is the Golden Tiki. At this fun and lively bar, drinks are over the top with lots of sugar, lights, and straw-hut fun at this tiki joint.

One might call this place a bit weird whereas others call it fun. We call it a great place to have a few affordable beverages in Las Vegas.

5. Velveteen Rabbit

The Velveteen Rabbit is a funky and artsy bar that is run by two sisters who manage a rotating selection of cocktails that change seasonally. This bar is away from the Strip and in downtown Las Vegas where this place really fits in well with the local arts scene.

If you’re feeling a bit classy, try one of their seasonal cocktails here. If you just want to hang out, they have a good selection of beers on tap too.

6. Downtown Cocktail Room

Downtown Cocktail Room is exactly just that: a cocktail room in downtown Las Vegas. This upscale and hip speakeasy is not the easiest place to find as you might miss the front door (look for the not-so-subtle sign).

Chat it up with the bartender and ask them for a recommendation of their favourite cocktail to make.
