So if you’re thinking about visiting Las Vegas, here are 5 must-see attractions worth taking in on your next visit to the downtown area:

• Downtown is home to 4 outstanding craft beer breweries – most visitors take for granted that they’ll be able to find their favorite beers on tap in the downtown area.

• “Rat Pack” hangouts – come explore some of the places where Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford, and Sammy Davis Jr. (a.k.a. the “Rat Pack”) used to hang out. Some of their more popular spots were Atomic Liquors, the Golden Gate Casino, Golden Nugget, and the Morelli House (a historic preservation project). It is a favorite with social media influencers and others that want to have an interesting memory of their trip to Las Vegas.

• Vintage speakeasy bar at the Mob Museum – although you may have heard about the Mob Museum, but did you also know that a Prohibition Era style speakeasy bar is located in its basement?

You’ll enjoy dining on small plates and classic craft cocktails while listening to live jazz bands.
