Drinking, Dancing, and Dive Bars - A Look at Laughlin Nightlife

Hotel search

Laughlin’s knack for entertainment heats up as soon as the sun goes down. Each casino is chock full of activities aimed at keeping the party alive, from sleek dance clubs to cozy cocktail lounges. Of course, you’ll always find a slot machine or table game to keep you entertained as you sip your drink.

Dance clubs

 

Clubbing is ultra-convenient in Laughlin, as the city’s dance scene is tied to its casinos. Have fun grooving to classic rock, hip-hop, and other toe-tapping musical genres. Settings are generally mellower than what you'd find in bigger cities, but some places still offer high-end extras like booths and bottle service.

Live music

 

You’ll be able to catch live musical acts in Laughlin all year long. The city tends to place an emphasis on country-western performers, classic rock acts, and the occasional tribute band. Most of the city’s concert spots are located inside the casinos. Outdoor shows tend to take place after sundown, when the soaring desert temperatures have cooled.

Dive bars

 

If you step away from Laughlin's main drag, you’ll find several bars that are rich in local character. These places typically have a handful of slot machines, but they're better known for their traditional parlor games and inexpensive drinks. They also carry the kind of hearty spirit only a true neighborhood joint can create, especially after dark.

 

Old Town Saloon

 

Photos of pre-casino Laughlin and 19th century mining artifacts can be enjoyed with a pint and round of darts at this casual establishment. If you end up gaming here, you’ll get your drinks for free.
