Monte Carlo has been in the news a lot lately. Along with New York-New York, the casino-resort is a bookend to The Park entertainment area and T-Mobile Arena which both recently opened. The newness in doesn’t end there as The Park Theater is currently under construction in the area most recently helmed by the Blue Man Group Theater. The new theater will expand the original venue and seat 5,000 people.
Fear not, the refreshment of this aging property will continue later this year when the Monte Carlo name is replaced with something new and more fitting with the recent developments of the area. After all, the renovations and additions to Monte Carlo have essentially wiped away the original Monte Carlo theme of the property.
With all of that being said if you’re on the Vegas Strip and looking for a way to save some money on food and drink you might want to look towards Monte Carlo or whatever the new name may be. Even though Monte Carlo is in the middle of receiving numerous upgrades there are some of the best Happy Hour deals on the Vegas Strip found at various restaurants inside the casino-resort.
Andre’s – This restaurant and lounge is an AAA 4-Diamond contemporary French restaurant what has an excellent Happy Hour. The discounted Happy Hour menu at their bar or cigar lounge lasts two hours but can be extended to last all night if you have an M Life players club card (sign up here).
Brand Lounge – The Lounge area of Brand Steakhouse offers Happy Hour prices for both food and drink. Special prices include $3 Off beer, cocktails and wine while appetizers start at $8 each.
D.Vino – The Italian restaurant and wine bar offers discounted prices at the bar all day but even better prices during Happy Hour. Special prices include $3 draft beer, $5 well drinks and wine along with $6 appetizers.
The Pub – The best beer bar on the Vegas Strip has one of the best beer specials you’ll find in the area. Special prices include $3 off beer and $3 Off appetizers. I recommend you stick with cheap beer.
Diablo’s Cantina – Head to the cantina bar with a view of the Vegas Strip and discounted prices for Happy Hour. Special prices include $5 draft beer and $4 tacos.
Double Barrel Roadhouse – The all-American roadhouse has live entertainment at night and Southern-inspired food but the Happy Hour is focused on booze. Special prices include $5 Bud, Bud Light, Shocktop, Firestone DBA Draft Beer and $6 well vodka cocktails.
The name change is confirmed to happen later this year. Usually, when there’s a name change to the hotels the restaurants also change but that might not be the case with Monte Carlo. The refreshment of the casino-resort and adjacent entertainment district might be enough to keep these Happy Hour deals intact. We’ll keep our eyes open for any changes.
