I’ve noticed that I’ve been eating dinner early a lot this year. I also realized why dinner is happening so often around 5 pm. Happy Hour deals in Las Vegas are no joke. It’s possible to save 50% on dinner by eating a little earlier than normal. Double and Reverse Happy Hour are even better since you can drink and eat a little bit early and go back for more if you’re feeling peckish later in the evening.

Las Vegas is still a relatively inexpensive vacation despite the animosity about resort fees, parking fees, drink monitoring, and other rising prices. That said, why not save a few bucks on dinner or drinks if it’s being offered? If nothing else you can save enough money on food and drinks to bet another game or play another hand or two of Pai Gow Poker.

Here are some Happy Hour deals that I always have on my mind when I’m thinking about saving a few bucks.

Herbs & Rye (3713 W Sahara Avenue)

Herbs & Rye is a local cocktail bar and restaurant located about 5 minutes away from the Vegas Strip. They have the deal of all Happy Hour deals in Las Vegas. Herbs & Rye is a classic 1920's era speakeasy type bar. Entering the dark room feels like you’re going back in time.

During Happy Hour (Monday - Saturday 5 pm - 8 pm and 11:59 pm - 3 am) their Prime steaks are 50% off. That’s a saving of $17 for a Flat Iron steak to $195 for the 120-ounce rib eye. There are a few other menu items discounted but nothing else matters after half off a steak. Oh yeah, each steak comes with a side order which saves a few more bucks from a traditional steakhouse meal.

Pizza Rock (201 N 3rd Street)

Herbs & Rye might be the best savings for a Happy Hour but Pizza Rock is the most useful for me. Downtown Las Vegas is where the party is. Pizza Rock Happy Hour is about the booze as much as it is the food savings.

You can order a craft beer and personal pizza and walk out with a $10 bill before tax and tip. Pizza Rock also has a two Happy Hours (3 pm - 6pm daily and 10 pm - Close Nightly). Food runs between $4 and $7 and drinks are $4 for wells and 32 ounce PBR. Beer dorks like me will opt for the $2 off draft beer which are normally around $7 or $8.

On my recent vacation, I visited Pizza Rock for early Happy Hour then walked across the street to play 3:2 blackjack for a few hours and returned just before close for more beer and a snack. It was a glorious afternoon and evening.

Beerhaus (3784 S Las Vegas Blvd./The Park)

Not everyone wants to leave the Vegas Strip just to save a few bucks. I get it. Beerhaus is located next to New York-New York and in front of T-Mobile Arena at The Park. This Happy Hour is all about drinking beer. Well, mostly about drinking beer.

During the week, Happy Hour is from 2 pm - 6 pm. You can purchase select craft (and macro craft) beer and hot dogs and sausages for $4. There aren’t many, if any, bars on the Vegas Strip with offering microbrews for $4. This is about half off the normal price for many of the beers. This is a great spot to pre-game for events at T-Mobile Arena.

Happy Hour is growing in popularity and casinos all over Las Vegas are offering more and more afternoon/evening deals. The three deals mentioned above are my favorite but there are plenty more everywhere you look. One word of caution, Happy Hour deals change fairly often in casinos. Keep your eyes open for deals the next time you’re in Las Vegas. Food and drink discounts aren’t difficult to find.
