Opened in 1952, patrons used to hang out on the rooftop to watch atomic blasts from the Nevada Test Site. Today, Atomic Liquors is still a great place to drink, day or night. It’s also super close to tons of other bars and restaurants on Fremont Street (and, if you’re into history, it’s also not far from the Mob Museum).

In addition to the friendly bartenders and full dinner menu,  be sure not to miss out on the cozy outdoor patio, which is rife with people-watching possibilities along Fremont Street.

CAPRI Pool Restaurant & Bar

3325 S Las Vegas Blvd
Las Vegas, NV 89109

A list about day drinking in Las Vegas would be remiss if it didn’t also include at least one poolside bar. If you’re looking for an experience with a little more sophistication than your average dayclub rager, be sure to check out the Palazzo pool deck. Its crystalline waters are heated, so you can enjoy a dip any time. Grab a lounge chair or book a private cabana and enjoy food and drinks hand-delivered to you from CAPRI Pool Restaurant & Bar. Specialty cocktails include the cold-pressed turmeric gin and tonic, refreshing strawberry frosé, and a selection of wines by the glass.

D Bar

301 E Fremont St, 
Las Vegas, NV 89101

Open 24/7

D Bar is just one of many bars you can find while ambling down the Fremont Street Experience, but it’s certainly among the most eye-catching.

Las Vegas, NV 89102

Open 24/7

Frankie’s Tiki Room is a classic Las Vegas bar and a can’t-miss stop if you’re planning on drinking the day away.

Dim lighting, cozy seating, and an endless supply of rum await you, along with video poker, blackjack, keno, and slots for the gambling-inclined.
