5 Facts About Downtown Las Vegas You Probably Weren’t Aware of

Aside from the Fremont Street casino and restaurant crowds, there’s a lot that many visitors aren’t aware of when visiting this section of Sin City. 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:

Three of the best daily happy hours can be found at Bin 702 at Container Park, Pizza Rock across the street from the Downtown Grand, and Triple George Grill which is also located across from the Downtown Grand.

• 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. But what they don’t realize is that Downtown Las Vegas is home to 4 outstanding craft beer breweries, the likes of which you won’t find anywhere else – Banger Brewing, Hop Nuts Brewing, Tenaya Creek Brewery, and Triple 7 Microbrewery.

• Main Street Station and the Berlin Wall – if you’re interested in seeing a true piece of history, be sure to visit the Main Street Station Casino. You’ll see a piece of the original Berlin Wall behind the men’s room’s urinals complete with the graffiti that was painted on the wall’s western side.

• “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.
