Three Great Mid-Strip Happy Hour Specials – 2017

Continuing on from the first part the series, we journey a little farther north. We can probably debate all day as to what constitutes as to a center Strip property, but let’s just get started:

This is, literally, the best picture I have of Aria.

Bardot Brasserie at Aria

5 – 7pm daily. Discounted appetizers, beer, wine and cocktails.

Happy hour specials are a great way to get a taste of some fine dining without breaking the bank. Specials at this well-reviewed french restaurant include steak tartar, tartines, and poutine lyonnaise. I believe that the fewer words on the menu I know how to pronounce, the better the food is- Bardot Brasserie fits the bill by this standard.

Excuse me, sir, but where are the happy hours?

Trevi in Caesars Palace Forum Shops

2 – 6pm and 9pm to close. $7 cocktails and wines by the glass, $5 beer, $4 frozen bellini. Food offerings consists of $6 “Trevie bites”. 

The Forum Shops may not be a Vegas lover’s paradise, as the sounds of the casino fade away, it still offers a lot by way of dining. Trevi has a fairly robust happy hour menu and a generous amount of time to fit it all in. A great spot for a quick bite before heading out for the night.

Quantity over quality.

It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar at Margaritaville (Flamingo)

5 – 6pm daily. 5 cent Miller Lites. $5 Landshark drafts, Margaritaville Gold Tequila Shots, craft beer flights, A-Dam Good Cocktails and house margaritas.

I simply have to list this. It’s 5 cent beer. The only time you’ll find something cheaper is on one of those rare occasions when your favorite ex-podcaster wrangles a deal for free beer.

Have a favorite place center Strip? Let me know!
