What to Expect
As soon as you approach Downtown Cocktail Room, you’ll find this isn’t just another bar. The first of several surprises comes with the lack of an obvious entrance door. Simply push on the bronze part of the entryway on the left and you’re in. Don’t mistake this challenge as a sign you won’t be welcome at Downtown Cocktail Room. The bartenders and servers are typically friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
Downtown Cocktail Room is one of the swankier, cozier bars of downtown Las Vegas. Depending on when you visit, the dimly lit room typically features either piped in or DJ-supplied ambient music. The room can get loud but most of the din is supplied by customers’ voices rather than the music.
What sets Downtown Cocktail Room apart from the other bars in the Fremont East District is the variety and quality of its cocktails. One of few mixology bars in Las Vegas, Downtown Cocktail Room specializes in custom-made cocktails using fresh ingredients and homemade bitters.
You’ve probably never seen a bar menu like Downtown Cocktail Room’s. Featured cocktails include a ranking of one to four indicating the complexity of each drink, and a symbol reflecting the type of glass in which each drink is served. Cocktails with lower numbers are likely to provide a consistent, tasty flavor from start to finish. Those with higher complexity will change as your palette gets used to the flavors. A drink ranked as a four may start out smokey and end sweet.
Simply craving a PBR while hanging out with friends? No fears. Downtown Cocktail Room offers a variety of beers ranging from standard domestics like Bud Light and Sierra Nevada to exotic imports like Delirium Tremens and Chimay White.
Because of its location slightly off the beaten tourist path, Downtown Cocktail Room’s customers are mostly Las Vegas locals with only occasional out-of-towners who have sought out the lounge.
Bar snacks and appetizers supplied by the neighboring Kabob Korner are available.
For the most personal and cost-effective experience, arrive during happy hour and grab a seat at the bar. Not only will you save a few bucks, but your bartender will gladly mix custom off-menu drinks based on your individual tastes.
Before leaving, make sure to visit the restroom for a final surprise. The stalls are constructed using one-way mirrors, allowing whoever is inside the stalls to see the people waiting outside (but thankfully not vice versa).
