Where to Find Cheap Alcohol

Vegas isn’t called Sin City for nothing.  Alcohol can be found everywhere and can definitely be a part of your fun night.  Just remember not to drive and be safe people!

Ways to get free and cheap drinks

1. Gamble

Gambling at any casino on the strip will give you right to an open bar.  A drink waitress will come around and take your order while you are gambling and will bring the drink right to you, so please remember to tip.  Feel free to ask for any drink you like as they likely will be able to provide it for you.  If you ask for an obscure drink be ready to tell them how to make it and the waitress will do the best to accommodate you.  Gambling isn’t necessarily free, you might say, so here are the cheapest ways to get the free drinks.

Penny Slots

Find your nearest penny slot and bet 1 credit per 1 line.  This means you are betting 1 cent per spin.  The waitresses won’t be looking at how much money you are betting so you can order free drinks while gambling almost nothing.

Poker Room

If you play poker the best place to get free drinks is in the poker room.  The waitresses come by constantly and you can probably get at least 6 drinks per hour.

2. Bring Alcohol With You

If you have room in your checked bag you can bring up to 5 liters of alcohol if it contains less than 70% alcohol content (140 proof).  If you plan on doing this please make sure it is packed in bubble wrap and taped tightly because bags are not treated very nicely during loading and unloading.  If you bring your own alcohol that will save you a lot of money buying drinks in bars.  Every hotel room provides cups so you can pregame with your cheap alcohol before you hit up the town.

3. Fat Tuesday

Fat Tuesday sells frozen daiquiris at a reasonable price.  There are many locations on the Strip but I believe the cheapest one is in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood.  You can get a lot of ounces for under $15 and extra shots are only $1.  Seeing as one drink in a club is $16, getting 5-8 shots for $16 seems pretty good.  On top of that if you keep the container you can bring it back for a refill at discounted price.

4. Diablo’s

Diablo’s at Monte Carlo has had coupons for $3 margaritas for the last three years. I am pretty sure the coupon has not changed design either. Just walk by between noon and 6 PM and you will usually see someone passing them out. They are good at the “to go” bar, which is the little window to the right of the entrance.

Unfortunately O’Sheas has been blown up. The good news is “Lucky” the leprechaun still has a job at Bill’s! Supposedly O’Sheas will be added back to The Quad when they finish with that, so I will expect them to have cheap drinks.

6. Downtown

If you don’t mind visiting downtown Las Vegas you can find cheap alcohol everywhere.  Bars on the street will sell 32-ounce rum and cokes for $12 and tall beers for $5.  Downtown is not as glamorous as the strip, but almost everything there costs less money.
