Village Pub & Poker provides several locations in Henderson and Las Vegas, but on my visit, I stopped at the Warm Springs location in the residential Whitney Ranch neighborhood. Locals and tourist head to these locations for fast American favorites and gaming rooms available 24 hours a day. Check out this pub’s casual vibe any time.
PKWY Tavern District offers an easygoing atmosphere in a contemporary sports bar setting. I highly recommend this spot for beer lovers! There are dozens of beers on tap, from American amber ales to Irish Stouts. A fresh, full menu and plenty of cocktails ensure there’s something for everyone here.
Though technically in Las Vegas, Frankie’s Tiki Room is a must-see if you’re checking out the nightlife in Henderson and the surrounding areas. This themed bar has all the over-the-top decor you’d expect from a tiki bar and bamboo furniture to set the tone. I recommend ordering one of their specialty drinks, six of which come in special containers, including one shaped like Frankenstein!
Another retro-themed bar near St. Luke’s Fountain in Las Vegas, Atomic Liquors, is worth the trip from Henderson to see. A dark bar with a slightly grungy motif, little has changed about this dive since it opened in 1952. The bar has a small but tasty food menu with bar favorites and twenty beers on tap! I recommend trying one of their signature cocktails, like the Hunter S. Mash too.
Back in Henderson, Hammers Grill & Bar provides a casual spot for drinks and food in the Black Mountain region of the city. Hammers serves its award-winning wings along with other classic American fare. The lowkey bar is covered with pictures and memorabilia, setting the perfect vibe for a neighborhood bar. Hammer also hosts bands, so visit when there’s live music if you can!
Remedy’s Tavern is another 24-hour venue with a friendly neighborhood vibe. In my opinion, this bar was slightly more elevated than other always-open locales, with great lighting and better-looking food. Remedy’s offers a great selection of American classics, many beers on tap, and tasty cocktails. Their desserts are an excellent way to end the night.
Come to PUB 365 to be spoiled for choice in this beer drinkers’ paradise. Though technically in Las Vegas, it’s worth the short drive from Henderson for its extensive beer selection with 365 rotating options. The bar has a relaxed, modern vibe, perfect for spending the evening with friends. I recommend the bread pudding with a whiskey sauce if you stay for dessert.
Just north of Henderson on Las Vegas’ southern edge, Kopper Keg East can be a little hard to find. This little spot is a local hideaway with intimate booth seating. The bar is kind of dark, but it sets the mood. A quiet place to play video poker or watch the game. Stop by Kopper Keg East for laidback time.
With multiple locations around the area, PT’s Gold is a local favorite for pub food and reasonably priced drinks. I stopped at the Henderson location near the Whitney Ranch neighborhood on my visit. This spot had a modern industrial vibe with a friendly ambiance. My favorite bar snack here was the corn fritters served with Chipotle crema.
People head to Rum Runner Boulder just outside Henderson’s city limits for a fun time at this sports-themed dive. Despite being quite a distance from Wisconsin, this bar is perfect for Packers fans, with lots of Green Bay memorabilia. Rum Runner does bar food right, serving many fried offerings without too much grease.
One of the best bars Henderson, Nevada, offers is an upscale option close to Lake Las Vegas. The Speakeasy uses a mix of vintage styles in its modern setting, though it heavily draws upon the 1920s for its luxurious style. Handcrafted cocktails and fine wines are staples, served alongside shareable plates of elevated bar fare.
Public Works Coffee Bar caters to locals with its selections of coffee near the Henderson Municipal Court in the heart of the city. Visitors usually come in later to this trendy spot’s wine and beer selections. An industrial setting punctuated with brightly colored murals, Public Works is an excellent place for a drink, no matter what you’re having.
Located in the Green Valley North planned community, Gambit Henderson provides a space with vintage charm and modern amenities. An upscale establishment offering bottle service, Gambit specializes in handcrafted cocktails and fresh, shareable starters. If you want to try a drink as visually appealing as it is tasty, try the Queen’s Gambit, made with botanical gin and pea flower syrup!
Regulars of Johnny Mac’s rave about the New York Style Pizza and Buffalo Wings, but the sports bar has been dishing out all sorts of excellent bar food since 1983. A low-key bar with a clean and inviting atmosphere, Johnny Mac’s is a great place to watch the game and drink a brew.
Joe’s Place is tucked away in the Gibson Springs neighborhood of Henderson. People love the cozy atmosphere at this 24-hour bar, especially the spacious patio. The modern-styled bar is elevated from what I usually expect from a bar that’s always open, and so is the food! I especially enjoyed the chicken and waffles at Joe’s.
