It’s time to go out, but a Vegas nightclub just seems dreadful and dressing up in a sequined dress feels like even more of a drag. You’re probably looking for something low-key in jeans and (maybe) some bootie heels, but preferably flats. The group text you’re in is full of peer pressure to go out, and tonight is just not the night for loud music, long lines and a party dress. Sound familiar? If you’re ever stuck in this situation in Sin City, however, have no fear. We have some suggestions that will turn any group text into a very promising, yet low-key, night out at some of the best bars in Las Vegas.
A Las Vegas favorite, and a spot many tourists favor for a beer on the strip. Located near the T-Mobile arena is a fresh take on the classic beer hall. Not only can you grab yourself and some friends a cold brew, but you should also prepare to play some fun bar games and munch on the many tasty appetizers.
A favorite amongst many locals is Pkwy Tavern Taphouse and Grille. This is a crowd favorite with over 250 beers to choose from, games, many televisions for sports, and food. They have two locations, one on West Flamingo Road and the other in the heart of Summerlin inside Tivoli Village.
The Golden Tiki
If you’re looking for a fruity drink and Caribbean vibes, this is the spot for you. The Golden Tiki’s drinks are mostly rum-based, and very unique, but don’t let that stop you from checking this bar out. Located in Chinatown on Spring Mountain.
Oak & Ivy
For great mules, whiskey and cider, head Downtown to this upscale cocktail lounge located in the back of the Container Park. The indoor/outdoor seating is very comfortable, stylish and elegant, but don’t worry about dressing up for the downtown experience. The very relaxed environment is perfect for a night out with a few girlfriends.
Last, but certainly not least, is a social drinking spot opened by two sisters looking for a fun place to hang out. Located in the heart of the Arts District, Velveteen Rabbit is a craft cocktail and beer bar with a rotating selection of twelve taps and 18-20 bottled beers. They also offer private cocktail classes for parties of six or more, if you’re ever interested in learning the art of a specialty cocktail.
