When people visit Las Vegas, they usually want to hit all the hot spots on the Strip. And while the big names may seem like the place to party, Las Vegas locals know happy hour is where it’s at. All around Vegas, you can find great deals on appetizers, drinks, and many other specials – as long as you know where to look!
We’ve made the ultimate guide of how to enjoy happy hour Las Vegas like a local, including where to go, what to order, and how to save a buck here and there (to spend at the casino, of course!).
Hank’s Fine Steaks & Martinis
During peak dinner hours, Hank’s is a swanky spot where you can get top-notch steaks and drinks. But, from 4pm-7pm, Hank’s offers one of Las Vegas’ best happy hours with half-price martinis and a special, gourmet appetizer menu.

During the first, you can expect half price appetizers and 2-for-1 cocktails, and at the second you will see half price appetizers from 10:30pm-1am and 2-for-1 cocktails from 1am-4am (views included).
