In it for the Tequila
We probably don’t have to tell you that Sin City is the place to be this May 5th. Below are some of the hottest parties throughout the city:
Sin de Mayo
No one said that Cinco de Mayo could only be one day. Luxor Resort is hosting a 4-day/3-night Las Vegas extravaganza to celebrate the weekend in style. Your $50 ticket includes a 3-night stay at Luxor Las Vegas, a chartered party bus with open bar, entry into two of the day’s biggest pool parties, a VIP Happy Half Hour on The High Roller, a machine gun experience (fire machine guns at a Vegas-lounge styled gun range), tickets to the “Sexy de Mayo” party at Tacos & Tequila, and a Sunday Funday at one of Luxor’s pools.
Cinco de Mayo Las Vegas Club Crawl
See some of the best entertainment that Las Vegas has to offer at the Cinco de Mayo Club Crawl. Tickets include transportation to four venues (including bars, lounges, and nightclubs), drink specials, VIP express entry (hint: no covers!), drinking games, and a private host.
Cinco de Mayo Fremont Street Bar Crawl
Led by the same hosts as the Club Crawl, the Cinco de Mayo Fremont Street Bar Crawl is definitely going to be the ultimate fiesta. Starting at 7pm, the party will go all night and tickets are only $15 for one person or $25 for two. Tickets include VIP entry access to four of the best venues Downtown, complimentary cover fees, your own party host, and exclusive drink specials. Bring the whole squad to Mickie Finnz to kick off the fun (peek the whole bar lineup the week before the event)!
Tacos or Tequila? Have Both!
Create your own bar crawl throughout Las Vegas by stopping at some local favorites! Whether you’re hoping to score some great taco deals, sip a margarita on the rocks, or enjoy live music, the Entertainment Capital of the World has you covered. Some of our favorite Cinco de Mayo picks include:
1 – Mariscos Playa Escondida – This hidden gem is off the Strip and a favorite among visitors and locals, alike. Just wait until you try their seafood platter, which features the best choices on the menu, all in one spot. Chow down on shrimp cooked three ways, crab, scallops, and fish. Mariscos Playa Escondida takes the Mexican classics up a notch.
2 – El Sombrero Mexican Bistro – Fresh roasted salsas, tortillas made daily, and homemade sauces and soups, need we say more? El Sombrero is a delicious take on Mexican classics and is known for their chile verde pork tenderloin, ancho chile ribeye, and unique seafood dishes. Plus, the extensive list of cocktails, wines, beers, and margaritas doesn’t hurt!
3 – Casa Don Juan – Casa Don Juan might be the best Mexican food that Las Vegas has to offer. They understand that no two guests are the same and customize the dining experience for anyone who walks through their doors. The whole team has an “all-consuming passion to create delicious food and extend impeccable service”. Try Casa Don Juan for brunch because they have every huevo (egg) dish you can think of, from huevos rancheros to huevos with cactus!
4 – Tacos Huevos – “Viva la revolución” at Tacos Huevos! The Mexican food revolution, that is. Tacos Huevos believes that subtle infusions in Mexican food can have a profound impact and the restaurant offers a new perspective on breakfast, brunch, and brinner (breakfast/dinner) with unique, quick-serve cuisine. End the days of boring breakfast and drunken Taco Bell runs!
5 – Nacho Daddy – There’s “never a dry chip” at Nacho Daddy in Las Vegas. Try the Lobster & Crab Nachos, the Thai Chicken Nachos, the Filet Mignon Nachos, and many more at this world-class Mexican-inspired spot. Plus, their award-winning margarita has been voted the Best of Las Vegas for two years running!
6 – Cabo Wabo Cantina – Cabo Wabo Cantina at Planet Hollywood is perfect for Cinco de Mayo. Enjoy their Tex-Mex Cuisine paired with plenty of tequila on the Strip-side patio. And thanks to the Cabo San Lucas-inspired vibe, you’ll feel like you’re on the warm, sunny beaches of Mexico in no time.
7 – Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville – Margaritaville at the Flamingo is always a fun time, but it’s even better on this Mexican holiday. They even have a three-story Volcano Bar that erupts margarita mix into 300 gallon blenders every hour. Dance to some Jimmy Buffett hits and live entertainment while enjoying your food and drinks. If that doesn’t sound like a fiesta, we don’t know what does.
8 – 17° South Booze and Bites – You can find delicious nachos and quesadillas right here at Tahiti Village in our very own 17° South Booze and Bites. Secure a room at Tahiti Village today and you won’t even have to leave the resort for your Cinco De Mayo fiesta. The 17° South Booze and Bites bar will be serving our signature specialty margaritas, in addition to a specialty cocktail called the CoronaRita to mix it up this year!
One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, more? Eat, drink, and relax your way through this year’s Cinco de Mayo weekend in Las Vegas!
