| Double Down Saloon [Official Site]

In a city that's not short of classy cocktail joints, but long on thrifty and thirsty patrons, it makes sense that economical dive bars litter the Las Vegas valley. Many of these bars possess a novelty value that might help patrons overlook some obvious flaws in their business plans. Others simply fit the bill of a locals-only dive bar, and might provide the adventurous with an off-Strip experience absent from any tourist guide book. Find gems such as Dino's Lounge, the Double Down Saloon with its "Shut Up and Drink" attitude, the Dispensary Lounge with its great burgers, LGBTQ destination Fun Hog Ranch with peanut shells on the floor, and more.
