Luckily a lot of restaurants in Las Vegas have some kind of happy hour. This can save you quite a bit of money considering most drinks on the Las Vegas strip can run you $10-$25 per drink. Yikes! A lot of restaurants also have a happy hour menu so be sure to ask your server for one. We’ve found most happy hours run anywhere from 3pm-6pm during the week often with a late night happy hour as well. Weekends will be a little harder to find but they’re certainly out there!

Some of our favorite Happy Hours in Las Vegas
Without further ado, here are some of our favorite happy hours to take full advantage of in Las Vegas. We tried to balance the list with options all up and down the strip so there should be a happy hour close to wherever you are staying.
- Sugar Cane in the Venetian
Happy Hour | Daily 3 PM – 6 PM / Friday & Saturday 10 PM – 12 PM
We love this restaurant for the cool vibe, raw bar and artisanal cocktails. Wine by the glass is $8 Beer/drafts, $7 & cocktails will run $7-8. If you’re in the mood for a tasty mojito, which is one of Joel’s favorite drinks this is the place to try one for $8.
- Buddy V’s Ristorante in the Venetian
2:00pm – 4:00pm Monday through Friday Available at the Bar Counter & High Tops in the Lounge
This is a home-style Italian restaurant with a big bar and lounge area. Drinks will run you $6.95 which isn’t the great deal it used. Happy hour food can be had for $7.95 Our favorites are the meatballs and eggplant parm.
HAPPY HOUR SUNDAY – SATURDAY 5:00 – 7:00 pm
We discovered this restaurant on our most recent trip to Las Vegas in 2021. It’s located on “The Mezz” level in Planet Hollywood and serves Japanese inspired cuisine. Their Signature cocktails are $7 with happy hour bites ranging from $6 – $12. Try the shrimp Tempura or spicy tuna roll, both were yummy and full sized portions!
- Ocean One Bar and Grille in The Miracle Mile Shops
Always 3 For 1 Cocktails $12 All Day Every Day
One of our go-to restaurants for an affordable meal and you can’t beat 3 for 1 cocktails for $12! During lunch every meal is $5.99. We’ve had the grilled salmon and a couple of the pasta dishes and they’ve all been quite good. This restaurant can get very busy so try to go during off peak times. Maybe a late lunch or early dinner.

My husband and I plan to celebrate our anniversary in Hawaii this year. It will be our first anniversary as husband and wife, but we will have a limited budget for the trip. So it is great to know when you said that there could be restaurants that would offer happy hour discounts which can save us by just getting $10 to $25 for a drink.
