As Sin City and the Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas offers plenty of nightlife and drinking options. One of the most popular—and most durable—is the Irish pub. Many resort-casinos offer spots to raise a glass in true Dublin style, and they dot the city’s suburbs as well. Whether you seek a rowdy spot to celebrate with friends or a quiet nook for a pint and a book, Las Vegas has an Irish bar to suit your fancy.

1. Hennessy's Tavern

A weekday happy hour offers a variety $5 deals on drinks and appetizers—think draft beers, fresh-squeezed screwdrivers, and loaded tater tots. Bands range from acoustic folk-rock soloists to ’80s cover bands with My Sharona covers and wraparound sunglasses.

2. McMullan's Irish Pub

For auld sod authenticity, it’s hard to beat McMullan’s. The McMullan family owned bars for generations back in Ireland and their Las Vegas outpost features a bar that was manufactured in Dublin with authentic family memorabilia adorning the walls. Several differently decorated rooms create an Irish village vibe and keep things cozy. The bar pours a variety of pints and also makes some of the best Irish coffee in town, while the kitchen turns out solid comfort food, such as Nanny Mac’s shepherd’s pie or a killer basket of fish ‘n chips.
