Secret Bars in Las Vegas

Can you keep a secret? Some of the best cocktail bars in Las Vegas are the ones that are hidden away from the crowds, tucked away in secret locations in the back of unassuming food courts, beneath museums, and behind barbershops. These are some of our favorite speakeasies in Las Vegas!

The Ski Lodge inside Superfrico at the Cosmopolitan

The Ski Lodge is an intimate space hidden within Superfrico, the “Italian American Psychedelic” restaurant concept from Spiegelworld, the live entertainment production company behind Absinthe, OPM, and Atomic Saloon Show. Superfrico is connected to the OPM showroom, so performers from the show will roam freely around the restaurant when they’re not on stage and a few of them will even pop into the Ski Lodge. Inspired by aprés-ski bars, the Ski Lodge is designed to look like a cozy cabin complete with a “climate-friendly” stone fireplace (and the occasional Yeti sighting). Order one of their unique craft cocktails, available exclusively in the Ski Lodge, along with some of their signature square pizza. You can also order from Superfrico’s full dinner menu during their regular dining hours.

Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den inside Famous Foods Street Eats at Resorts World

To find Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den inside the Famous Foods Street Eats food hall at Resorts World, you first have to find Fuhu Cha Chaan Teng, a legitimate sit-down, full-service restaurant. The entrance to Here Kitty Kitty is hidden behind a shelf along the back wall, which then transports you into this “vice den.” The design mixes industrial chic with hand-painted Chinese ottomans next to metal cocktail tables, neon tigers on exposed brick walls, and red Chinese lanterns hanging among the exposed ceiling beams. This intimate 800-square-foot space also has one of the finest mixology programs in Sin City!

Easy’s Lounge inside Proper Eats at the ARIA

Easy Donuts & Coffee at Proper Eats Food Hall is a standard donut shop by day, but at night a secret passageway opens behind the donut shop revealing the entrance to Easy’s Cocktail Lounge, a sultry speakeasy with a Roaring ‘20s vibe complete with plush velvet seating and Art Deco design. There is live jazz and blues on their intimate stage every night they’re open, but that’s not the only show happening in this space: order one of their “Showstopper” cocktails to see for yourself how a cocktail can also be a form of entertainment.

The Underground at the Mob Museum

The Underground at the Mob Museum in downtown Las Vegas is an immersive Prohibition history exhibit that functions very much as part of the museum experience, with informative and entertaining exhibits, videos, and artifacts from the 1920s that tell the story of Prohibition – and, of course, the Mob’s role in it. There is also a working distillery where they craft their own moonshine, which you can purchase to take home, and a fully operational “speakeasy.” By that we mean, the Underground features a full cocktail bar serving Prohibition-era craft cocktails as well as their own creations with weekly live music that harkens back to that booze-soaked bygone age. You don’t need a museum ticket to visit the cocktail bar, but you do need the password (check their social media accounts for updates).

The Barbershop Cut and Cocktails at the Cosmopolitan

Business in the front, party in the back: that’s the game at the Barbershop inside the Cosmopolitan, a fully operational barbershop in the front where gentlemen can receive the old shave-and-a-haircut, with a lively cocktail lounge and live music venue in the back hidden behind a janitor door. The Barbershop is known for its extensive collection of whiskeys from around the world, as well as rockin’ live music seven nights a week from a rotating lineup of local bands that perform a mix of live band karaoke, rock, country, and all-request nights.

Pier 17 Yacht Club inside the Green Fairy Garden at Caesars Palace

The lush Green Fairy Garden is located in front of Caesars Palace and serves as the outdoor lobby and lounge space for the raunchy hit show, Absinthe. Tucked away inside the Green Fairy Garden (just inside the entrance to your immediate left) is the Pier 17 Yacht Club, a cocktail bar that looks like the inside of a swanky yacht cabin with its own outdoor lounge deck. Order from their exclusive craft cocktail menu and add smashburgers and caviar-topped Super Yacht Tots from No Pants, also located in the Green Fairy Garden.

1923 Prohibition Bar at Mandalay Bay
1923 Prohibition Bar is a “hidden” bourbon bar inside the Shoppes at Mandalay Place that used to be a lot more hidden than it is now – you still enter through a faux bookcase façade, but now that bookcase has very clear and obvious signage. This is easily the largest “speakeasy” lounge on this list, a full entertainment venue that hosts piano players and burlesque dancers, plus spooky magic shows inside “The Hidden Chamber,” a hidden bar within the hidden bar. Sip on one of their signature barrel-aged cocktails or unique specialty Old Fashioneds as you enjoy the show!

Jalisco Underground at Resorts World
The least hidden on this list of “hidden” cocktail bars, Jalisco Underground has obvious signage next to Wally’s Wine & Spirits in Resorts World but is still tucked away in an underground space that still isn’t widely known. The focus here is all high-end tequilas (“Jalisco” is the birthplace of tequila), and the bar is styled after Mexico City’s trendy tequilerias. Expect more of a nightclub atmosphere with craft cocktails, tequila flights, and modern Latin music from DJs and live performers.

Ghost Donkey inside Block 16 Urban Food Hall at the Cosmopolitan

As the first food court “speakeasy” on the Las Vegas Strip, Ghost Donkey can be credited with kick-starting the now red-hot trend. Hidden in the back of the Block 16 Urban Food Hall behind a plain door – the only marking is a donkey decal – Ghost Donkey is a mezcal and tequila lounge with a fun “fiesta” vibe. The place is tiny and it fills up quickly, but their specialty cocktails and extensive selection of mezcals and tequilas make it well worth the wait. And don’t miss the truffle nachos while you’re there!

The Laundry Room at Commonwealth

Hidden within the stunning Commonwealth bar on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas, the Laundry Room is the definition of “intimate” with only 22 guests allowed inside at any time and some pretty strict house rules that include no photography. That’s right – patrons inside the Laundry Room will have to drink their drinks and not post them to Instagram. Not only is this place a throwback to the Prohibition era; it’s also a throwback to the pre-social media era! The focus here is entirely on the craft of cocktails, and it offers a welcome respite from the craziness of Fremont Street.
