Meet Your Guide at the Plaza Hotel

If you learn one thing about Vegas, it should be how important the Plaza Hotel & Casino is to Vegas' illustrious history. For decades, this storied hotel hosted the most glamorous parties for Hollywood and important politicians. And the influence of the mob isn't one to forget either. You'll start your bar-hopping Vegas tour here where it all started as you head into an upbeat live music club. Enjoy a drink here as you hear stories of the wildest past to the modern present.

The Fremont Street Experience

After your first drink, your walking tour begins along famous Fremont Street—the beating heart of early-days Las Vegas. Pass by Block 16 where the city’s original red light district rose up, see the iconic casinos you remember from the movies, and wave to Vegas Vickie—the neon cowgirl symbolic of the famed Glitter Gulch.

You’ll also pass by some of downtown’s modern wonders, including the shark tank swimming pool and the world’s largest video screen on Fremont Street!

Downtown Cocktail Room

Once you’ve built up a thirst from your walk, it’s time for your second drink stop on the tour. In the back alleys of Fremont, your guide will take you into the longest running craft cocktail bar in the neighborhood. Sit back and enjoy the intimate surroundings, and savor one of the bar’s much-loved signature drinks before heading to your next stop.

Step Back in Time at the El Cortez Hotel

One of the oldest casinos in Las Vegas and once owned by the infamous Murder Inc. mobsters Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky, the El Cortez oozes Vegas history. Your guide will lead you into the Vintage Parlour bar for your final drink of the evening, and you can choose from a selection of cocktails and beers to sip as you imagine the shady deals and dramatic events that once took place within these walls.

Continue Your Night at the Downtown Container Park

Across the street is the innovative Downtown Container Park, partially made from old shipping containers and home to the famous 40-foot, fire-breathing praying mantis! Home to some of city’s most exciting restaurants, shops, clubs, and entertainment venues, it’s the perfect place to continue your night in Vegas.

Your guide will wave goodbye here, but listen to their local tips so you can make the most of your evening in downtown.
