The Strip

Downtown Cocktail Room


111 Las Vegas Blvd. S.,
Las Vegas,
United States,

Revitalized Fremont Street has quickly become the favorite under-the-radar bar scene, and the Downtown Cocktail Room is appropriately hard to find. Its hidden door is marked only by a tiny Downtown sign, and its speakeasy feel is part of the appeal. Set in a renovated wedding chapel, it’s now a sexy dark room with selectively lit nooks. Red walls and secluded booths make the small space sultry, and you can actually have a conversation here: the DJ spins an eclectic blend of downtempo electronica, classic rock, and world music at just the right volume. Anyone looking to crash a party (or start one) will feel out of place, but the subdued, stylish locals look right at home sipping on elevated cocktails like The Huntridge (Plymouth gin, Kübler absinthe, and muddled cucumbers).
