The Las Vegas Strip isn’t exactly known for its bargains. (Dollar shrimp cocktails aren’t coming back anytime soon.) There are, however, places on the Strip where you can grab a quick discounted bite and find a cheaper drink. In Vegas, restaurants with happy hour menus are often located inside shopping malls, although a few resort restaurants participate as well. Here, Eater highlights some of the most compelling happy hours in Las Vegas right now. Remember, happy hour deals change frequently, so be sure to check the restaurant’s website or social media for updates before popping in for a drink.Read More
