Where to drink for free in Las Vegas

Welcome to Cheapflights

The simple way to find cheap flights and hotels from all your favourite travel companies

People say there’s no such thing as a free meal, but what about a free drink? For those who prefer their booze to their food, the legendary casinos of Las Vegas offer unlimited free drinks to anyone who’s gambling. It doesn’t matter whether you’re spending pennies on a slot machine, or dishing out some serious dough – just remember to tip the cocktail waitress (at least a dollar per drink, or $5 to kick off the service) and let the good times roll.

Bellagio

The iconic Bellagio resort is about as flashy and imperial as they come in Vegas, and has the cocktail menu to match. Sweet drinks are a favourite here, including the strawberry margarita and deadly frozen mudslide. Beware how fast you guzzle them down — these heavenly drinks are more intoxicating than you may think.

Wynn Las Vegas

Rumoured to have one of the best free drinks available on the strip, the chocolate martini at the fabulous Wynn Las Vegas is to die for. The locale’s marginally less sweet espresso chocolate martini comes in at a close second. And boy, do they make a mean authentic mojito – fresh mint leaves and no mixers here. Just perfect!

Encore

As the sibling resort to the Wynn Las Vegas, Encore promises more of the same. Prepare yourself for gallons of silky White Russians, phenomenal Bloody Marys, and some top-shelf frozen drinks to boot. Note that neither the Wynn nor the neighbouring Encore offer complimentary drinks to guests playing video poker at the bar, whereas other casinos don’t make this exception.

Aria

The Aria towers like a jewel over the parched Nevada desert, enticing thirsty gamblers with an oasis of free drinks. Pick your poison — the palatial Aria casino has it all – but punters swear by the punch of their strawberry margaritas.

Cosmopolitan

Renowned as the biggest and best party hotel on the strip, it’s no wonder the Cosmopolitan boasts a generous open bar (with chocolate martinis to rival those at the Wynn and an A-list celebrity clientele). Load up on freebies in the casino before heading to the famous in-house nightclub Marquee, which plays host to some of the world’s top DJs.

Paris Las Vegas

You simply can’t miss the landmark Paris Las Vegas, where the mock Eiffel Tower rises above the strip. The Paris casino is an iconic gambling experience, fuelled with – you guessed it – a bounty of free drinks. Don’t leave before you’ve sampled their famous pina colada; it’s not French, but qui se soucie (who cares)?!
