Downtown Las Vegas Nightlife 101

Whether it’s prohibition inspired-Common Wealth, indoor, outdoor escapades at Park on Fremont or live entertainment at Beauty Bar, visitors are mesmerized by everything involving nightlife in downtown Las Vegas. Here’s a few tips to make your night memorable and seamless.

Check the Lineup

FSE Concert Crowd

Most people choose their nighttime destinations based on the music. If you’re an EDM fan, check out Common Wealth‘s bottom floor for today’s hottest beats. If your loving retro and classic rock, Fremont Street Experience offers nightly entertainment on three different stages. If you’re diggin’ old school and dance joints, head to Gold Diggers Night Club at the Golden Nugget.

Get on a Guest List

The first things to damper any night out is waiting in lines. Reserve a booth or table at a downtown Las Vegas bar or night club and get ready for VIP service. Having a casino host can also get you premium access to downtown’s hottest concerts and events.

Come Dressed to Impress

The wrong outfit can instantly kill the party vibe. For ladies, spoil yourself with a new outfit and those pumps you’ve been waiting to try out in your closet. There’s only one fashion rule for women’s night life attire, make it flattering and eye catching. For men, keep it simple with slacks or clean-cut jeans and a button up. Hitting the town is not the opportunity to hang out in your favorite basketball shorts. Break the daily monotony and spice up your wardrobe.

Know Your Transportation Options


Las Vegas is a 24-hour city which means a car is always just a phone call away. Take advantage of the newest additions to Vegas nightlife, Uber and Lyft. Within minutes, receive personal car service to anywhere in the city.

Get There Early

Although downtown is the hidden jewel of Las Vegas, access to bars and lounges doesn’t work quite the same as the strip. If you can’t reserve a table, get to your destination early to find the premium spot to host your night.

Go For Happy Hour


Never underestimate the power of half priced drinks. Get the pre-gaming started with a premium drinks. Let the college students have their PBR and Bud Lights. The bests happy hours downtown include Cadillac Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Bar (m-f 4p -7p and 11 p – 1a $3-5), Parlour Bar ($5 Champagne on Thursdays and daily pint specials 4 – 6p and 11p – 1a), Beauty Bar (Nickel Beer Night Tuesdays 9p – close), Banger Brewing (m-f $5 beers 3p – 6p) Park on Fremont (m-f $3-5 drinks 4p – 7p and 11p – close), Hennessey’s Tavern (m-f 4p – 7p $5 drinks), and Backstage Bar and Billiards (T – Thu 8p – midnight $1 tap and 2-for-1 drinks).
