Though it doesn’t rain much in Las Vegas, we do get our share, however brief, of showers. Whatever the weather, I’ve rounded up some of the best rainy day bars in Vegas.
Born And Raised
7260 S. Cimarron Road
Las Vegas, NV 89113
(702) 685-0258

Open 24 hours, 7 days a week, this gem in the desert is a hidden treasure. Owner Scott Godino Jr., builds his business on a simple philosophy he learned from his grandfather:Ttreat everyone, employees and customers, as if they matter. It’s not about the bottom line. This bar features 32 flat screen TV’s, a variety of cocktails, including their signature “The Bartini”, 20 different beers on tap and a full menu with 15 different sliders. Prices are reasonable and the menu not only offers their famous sliders, but also salads, wraps, pancakes and eggs. It’s no surprise Born And Raised was voted the Best of Las Vegas in the Las Vegas Review Journal’s Poll.

Art Bar
Downtown Grand
206 N. 3rd St.
Las Vegas, NV 89101
(702) 719-5100

What better way to spend a rainy or cloudy day than exploring art by local artists, or sitting in overstuffed chairs talking with friends. The Art Bar is one of the new hot spots in the revitalization of downtown Las Vegas. Open daily from 2 p.m. – 10 p.m., this is a great place to explore, drink and eat. Offering beer, wine, and specialty “artsy” cocktails, such as The Blank Canvas and The Abstract; the Art Bar serves, as the menu states, artfully prepared foods starting at $7.

FireSide Restaurant & Tavern

Las Vegas, NV 89183

Specialty beers from England, China and Belgium are just a few of the many beers Fireside takes pride in offering to their customers. Open 24 hours, you’ll be able to order wood fired burgers, sliders, pizza, or breakfast; including eggs benedict, biscuits and gravy, to steel cut oats, all at a reasonable price and a great comfortable atmosphere.
