Inside the hotel-casinos that line Las Vegas Boulevard are bars of all types and sizes. But, most won't make you question the sanity of entering. And, their cleanliness. And, none will make you forget you're on The Strip. (Unless, you're completely bombed out of your mind.)
For a true old school dive experience -- one that, upon entering, makes you lose all perception of place or time -- you need to head off Strip. Today, we continue our journey into the underbelly of Las Vegas’ bar culture with two more of our favorite dives. Find our first two recommendations, here.
Frankie’s Tiki Room (1712 West Charleston Boulevard)
Frankie’s is still a hidden gem of Vegas. We almost don’t want to tell you about the place for fear of ruining our own little secret. A traditional tiki bar in every sense of the word, Frankie’s serves up high-potency tropical drinks in a super-dark, island-themed room. Most of the place looks hand-carved. The lights are made from blowfish. Surf music plays lightly from the speakers while all manners of strange things play on the TVs over the bar.

Vegas is a drinker’s paradise. Yes, it may be the home of the 80 oz. slushy drink in a tube, the 50 oz. vodka/Red Bull on a chain and the $500 table-served bottle, but it is also a wealth of unique bars with price points for everyone.
From the quaint and divey to the strange and over the top, Sin City has a dive bar just for you. Here are two of our favorites. We'll share more as throughout the year. Be sure to tell us yours in the comments below.
Dino’s (1516 Las Vegas Boulevard South)
By Dino’s own admission, they've been getting Las Vegas drunk since 1962. The self-proclaimed “Last Neighborhood Bar in Las Vegas” has long been a favorite for generations of Las Vegans and visitors. The bar is covered in autographed dollar bills from thousands of visitors that wanted to leave a mark in such a cool place.

There are few things we like more than leading our dear friends down the road of debauchery, especially in Las Vegas.
So, when we had the opportunity to break free from the mob of 100+ journalists hosted by CityCenter last week (imagine the very best and worst high school reunion rolled into a 72-hour affair complete with copious amounts of dick swinging and one-upping), we had to take our Vegas virgin friend, Jenna, to see some of the not so swank features of the Strip.
Maybe Jenna wasn’t exactly an unsullied maiden, but she hadn’t graced the Strip in nearly two decades, which pretty much makes her born again material in our book.
