The speakeasies on this list offer a mix of unique experiences, from hidden bars within hotels and restaurants to secret bars in hidden basements. All of these places promise great fun and entertainment, perfect for a night out in Vegas.
Note: Reservations are recommended, and at some places are required. Although we will try to give the most updated information, we advise checking the sites directly for availability and recommendations on arrival.
The Laundry Room is one of the most exclusive speakeasies on our list. Hidden in the popular Commonwealth bar, this speakeasy gives you a cozy, tech-free experience that cannot be missed out on.
When you let the staff know you’re there for the speakeasy, you are transported back to the 1920’s and given the rules, which include no technology or pictures, speaking low, and of course, enjoying yourself.

Reservations are required and often fill up weeks in advance.

While this is easier to find than some of our other choices as it’s connected to Minus 5 Ice Bar, the ambience and drinks are absolutely worth a visit in themselves.

Located in OmegaMart, Datamosh is another more unique choice on our list. If you head to the pharmacy area of the eclectic grocery store, you’ll find Datamosh tucked away waiting for you. OmegaMart has taken a unique twist on many beloved cocktails.
If you’ve seen the rest of OmegaMart, you’ll know exactly what to expect at Datamosh, the decor and light make you feel like you’ve traveled to another dimension. And that ambience transfers over to the drinks like The Source with rosemary bubble smoke, or the old fashioned spray, topped with a spritz from their old fashioned spray bottle. Reservations are not required and entrance is included with your ticket.

Located in a donut shop at the Aria food court, Proper Eats Food Hall, this cocktail lounge brings a new and innovative style to a traditional speakeasy. The ambience is incredibly cozy with plenty of small tables for you and your group.
While the ambience is incredible, the drinks are really what take the speakeasy to a whole new level, with the Heart of The Ocean, served in a seashell and topped with a black sea salt foam, or the Shroomin, which is served in whimsical mushroom glasses and rimmed with dried herb sugar. Reservations are not required, but if you have a group, we recommend booking a table on their website.
Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den is a stunning speakeasy located in Resorts World. The speakeasy is located behind a hidden bookshelf at Fuhu Cha Chaan Teng, and once you enter you’re greeted by absolutely stunning decor all around that makes you feel like you’ve stepped into a Japanese night market.
