Where to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Las Vegas 2024

Cinco de Mayo is known throughout the United States as an excuse to party. While Mexico commemorates the holiday with parades and battle reenactments, in the U.S., the holiday is largely a popular celebration of Mexican-American culture. And Las Vegas is more than happy to join the celebration with restaurants, parties, and tequila bars up and down the Strip. Expect the festivities to be bigger than ever in 2024 with lots of Mexican-themed bars, restaurants, and specials to check out. Cinco de Mayo falls on a Sunday this year, offering the perfect excuse for a long, margarita-filled holiday weekend.

Casa Calavera

Virgin Hotels Las Vegas

Casa Calavera at Virgin Hotels is one of the best places in Las Vegas for a mix of style, sizzle, and Mexican culture. The restaurant has a Day of the Dead theme, with skulls and murals featured throughout the dining room. Of course, there will also be plenty of tacos and tequila to enjoy this Cinco de Mayo. Casa Calavera’s happy hour runs from 3-5 p.m. on select days and includes $7 menu items, $20 beer buckets, and 50% off selected cocktails.

While you’re there, be sure to try José’s favorite Salt Air Margarita and house specialties like queso fundido and fried wontons.

The Still

At first glance, The Still–located in Las Vegas’ iconic Mirage–may not seem like the perfect place to spend Cinco de Mayo. However, take in The Still’s high-energy atmosphere featuring a bustling bar, delicious menu, and 27 TVs fit for any sports fan, and “the best sports bar in Las Vegas” starts to look like the perfect party spot. The centerpiece of the restaurant, a refurbished Airstream trailer-turned-kitchen dubbed Bud Bud’s, serves up an eclectic menu of upscale bar food daily, including Cinco de Mayo faves like nachos, quesadillas, and the restaurant’s famous El Presidente Margarita.
