It’s no secret that Las Vegas loves hidden bars and lounges. These secret speakeasies are hidden all over the Las Vegas Strip in restaurants, barbershops, food stands, and attractions. You just have to know where to look. Luckily for you, it’s 2022, and I’m not gatekeeping!
Here are my six favorite speakeasies in Las Vegas!
The Barbershop Cuts and Cocktails
On the outside, The Barbershop Cuts and Cocktails looks like your average barbershop. From employees, barber chairs, a small waiting area, and a bar cart for customers to enjoy a drink while they wait, you wouldn’t think there was anything special about this spot. However, through the janitor’s closet, there is a hidden lounge. The Barbershop Cuts and Cocktails has an old-school vibe with unique features, including a 100+-year-old mahogany bar and floor-to-ceiling art. The lounge has more than 150 whiskeys and bourbons from around the world. The mixologist will even provide you with a tasting to broaden your palate.
Location: The Cosmopolitan – Floor 1
1923 Prohibition Bar
1923 Prohibition Bar is taking you back to the 1920s with their Prohibition-themed speakeasy. This lounge is only open Friday and Saturday evenings and can be found directly off the casino floor at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. The 1923 Prohibition Bar specializes in bourbon cocktails and offers 50 different bourbons and whiskeys.
Turnt Up Tours Host, Iniki even works part-time at this lounge. If you stop by be sure to tell Iniki how you heard about the 1923 Prohibition Bar!
Location: Shoppes at Mandalay Place
The Underground is located off the Las Vegas Strip but is well worth the drive. This lounge is not only a speakeasy but also an immersive experience that takes you back to the Prohibition era. This venue operates as a distillery and brewery and serves guest house-made moonshine and house-brewed beer. Be sure to check out the bookshelves and look out for hollowed-out books for a surprise.
Location: The Mob Museum Downton – Basement
Hidden through a food hall, Ghost Donkey is a small bar that only seats 20 people. This speakeasy specializes in mezcals and tequila cocktails and has a limited food menu with their famous truffle nachos. Ghost Donkey is open daily at 4 pm, and be sure to get there at open to grab a seat.
Location: The Cosmopolitan – Block 16 Urban Food Hall – Floor 2
Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den
One of the newest speakeasies on the Las Vegas Strip is Here Kitty Kitty. Here Kitty Kitty is hidden behind a small convenience store called Ms. Meow’s Mamak. This storefront appears to be an average beverage and snack shop. However, if you push on the blue shelf with the three lucky cats, you will enter an elegant lounge. Here Kitty Kitty offers a great mixology program and delicious bites.
Location: Resorts World – Famous Foods Street Eats – Floor 1
The Hangover Movie Bar Experience
The Hangover Movie Bar Experience is hidden in another Las Vegas strip attraction. If you are a Hangover movie fan like me, this is a place to checkout! The cocktail menu even references the movie with featured drinks such as “Baby Carlos Margarita” and “I Married A Whore” along with a full bar and frozen daiquiris. Be sure to follow the tiger prints to find your wolf pack.
Location: The Venetian – In Madame Tussauds
