Las Vegas is the epitome when it comes to drinking alcohol beverages and dark hole-in-the-wall places. When you think of “turning up” or having a good time there is no better place than Vegas.
Local bars serve customers, many 24 hours a day, granting them the convenience of comfort. The Las Vegas Strip is full of “hotel” bars that will cost you anywhere from $16 to $38 a drink. Unless you’re a high roller these strip prices will drain your bank account. The real secret is going to the dive bars that are located away from the glitz and glam. Locals know where to go to have a good time for an inexpensive price.
Every day can be a hustle and bustle but the dark shabby dive bars are open and welcoming.
