(between Flamingo and Imperial Palace)
You have to love a place that has a 24-hour long happy hour and that locals and visitors alike call “a dive bar on the Strip.” Everyone who drinks here tells their friends about the relaxed atmosphere, friendly people, and fun without the big casino attitude. Stop in at the Dublin Up or any casino bar for the “2,3,4,5 special”: $2 domestic drafts, $3 Big Daddy drafts, $4 apple martinis, $5 shot and a beer (tequila shot and a 12 oz. domestic). At a big name nightclub, you buy a bottle of booze, you’re paying for real estate. What if you just want a drink? At O’Sheas, bottle service puts the emphasis back on the bottle. Enjoy their Brown Bag Special — a 750ml bottle of Jack Daniel’s or Smirnoff with your choice of mixer for only $45. OK, it’s still double what you pay in a package store, but it’s only 10 percent of what you’ll pay across the street at Pure Nightclub in Caesar’s.
