Downtown Cocktail Room
Located in the burgeoning “Fremont East” entertainment district, this bohemian-chic lounge is the perfect place for happy hour, evening cocktails, after-dinner drinks, or a late night “un-scene.” The low lights, down-tempo music, and relaxed vibe may be just what Vegas needs. Get a giant punch bowl to share; it’s the cocktail world’s version of bottle service! (Recommended by Sarah Gianetto)

In a town with way more than its fair share of bars, it’s hard to believe that some of the best cocktails in the city are crafted by the skilled bar staff at an unassuming mom-and-pop Italian restaurant. For years, Nora’s has been using fresh ingredients and attention to detail to satisfy the local palate for quality drinks and food. So it’s hard to resist one of their perfectly executed Negronis (gin, Campari, sweet vermouth) before a homemade Italian dinner with great wine and finished with a dessert cocktail or bitter digestif made with the finest Italian liqueurs. Mixing up classics and originals, the cocktail team pairs perfect with the traditional and inventive chefs.
