“I love this Bar!”

Owner description: Known the world over as the Happiest Place on Earth, the Double Down Saloon has been bringing a much needed sophistication to Las Vegas since 1992. Interplanetary abstract. Urban decay. The Anti-Vegas. Double Down is indeed a clubhouse for the lunatic fringe.

“I love this Bar!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

This is the itinerate hole in the wall that you have to visit. It's old, run down, has junk all over everthing and is so much fun. Two pool tables, live music and from noon to five every drink in the place is $2; what more could you ask for!! Thanks for the great time Butter!

“A must visit in vegas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Another of my favourite bars in Vegas is a dive bar out near the Hard Rock Hotel called the Double Down Saloon. Situated in an area the locals call the fruit loop, its an area that feels safe and this bar if you are that way inclined is a must visit if you have had too much of an overdose on the glitz and lights of the strip. Its about a 15-20 minute walk from Planet Hollywood, its ok if the heat isn’t too bad but a short cab ride if it is.
Double Down never closes, it cant close as there isn’t a lock on the door, and as you walk in its dark, real dark, the door isn’t the most inviting and its a place you need to look for, this isn’t cabo wabo. So you go in and its a great little seedy place, most nights they will have a band playing, a punk band, or something of that ilk. In the day though, my favourite time to visit, there is usually just a bartender, a jukebox and little else.
The jukebox, if punk is your thing then they potentially have the greatest jukebox in the world, not just relatively big acts like nofx, but also lesser known bands like Canadian psychobilly band The Creepshow, this jukebox is superb. A tv on mute will be playing b movies and the jukebox in the day is the only entertainment.
They have a happy hour and you can get a tequila for something like $2, they also serve this cocktail called [--] juice. Its not as bad as it sounds, it just means that its from the dregs of bottles. They also do a bacon martini, which is as bad as it sounds.
The toilets, hmmm, well they aren’t private, they are covered in graffiti and well, an experience.
They don’t do food, but you can get food and bring it in.
Thats it, its a great bar, really great, its friendly, it has a fantastic jukebox, its cheap and a must visit for any vegas holiday.

“Dirty dive - feels like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

We like dive bars - try the famous a-double s juice in a souvenier toilet shot glass, or their famous bacon martini or bacon bloody mary, soooo good!! They infuse the Vodka themselves!

Last time we were here they had some live punk bands, this time round we sat at the bar and were entertained by the super friendly bartender!

OPEN 24 hours! :)

“Rock and Roll Dive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

This is my favorite spot to drink in Las Vegas. Mystery "a-juice" shots, bacon martinis, a juke-box filled with punk and hard rock, graffiti on the walls, and an interesting, eclectic, alt-clientele make this the least Vegas-ish of Vegas bars. So cool that New York's East Village had to have one! How often do Vegas bars open in New York?

“What more do you need? The perfect bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

"A"-juice, punk rock, cool bartenders. What more could you want? The perfect antidote to all the glitz and nonsense. of the rest of Las Vegas.
Warning- The "A"-juice will mess you up very quickly! But that's the point, isn't it!!!! Just don't ask whats in it. If memory serves me, they also have Shiner Bock beer. And the bands are generally awesome. Because Punk Rock is generally awesome.
