There’s something special about happy hour at a neighborhood pub. A warm and inviting space leads to intimate conversations and can set the tone for a grand night out. How do you get that quaint feeling when visiting the Las Vegas Strip? Head to Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill for a cozy but classy English pub experience.
Located inside Caesars Palace, and easily accessible from all entry points, Ramsay’s venue is a perfect spot for hitting up Happy Hour. While the establishment can hold nearly 300, the space feels intimate and fabulously familiar with a patio extending onto the casino floor, a series of smaller dining rooms, and a friendly stretch of bar showing off 36 beer taps and attentive staff.
Pull up a chair alongside the bar to watch televised sports or slide into a booth for a comfortable nook with friends. Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill offers an upscale casual setting that will feed your celebrity chef cravings without breaking the bank. Happy Hour specials are offered Monday through Friday, 2-5pm, and include pocket-friendly deals on beverages and bar food, but any time of day or night seems right in this cozy spot on The Strip.
While there’s an impressive list of lagers, ales, and seasonals, as well as wines by the carafe or bottle, you’ll want to sip some of Ramsay’s signature cocktails. If Bloody Mary is your go-to beverage, savor the surprise with Ramsay’s two sizeable options: both the Belvedere and the Ultimate are stacked high with delectable garnish, so it’s just a matter of whether you’re going solo or sharing (or perhaps very, very thirsty).
For a decadent liquid dessert for grownups, order one of Ramsay’s Hard Shakes. Heat up summer nights with Campfire S’Mores featuring vanilla ice cream, graham crackers, Bulleit Bourbon, caramel sauce, hot fudge, and charred marshmallow. If you’re celebrating anything at all, even just a girls’ night out, you’ll want to taste the Happy Birthday Surprise with birthday cake ice cream, rainbow sprinkles, Ketel One Citron Vodka, Absolut Vanilla Vodka, and a full-sized cupcake.
You won’t want to skip the snacks so sample the house-marinated olives and roasted nuts if you’re seeking something salty. Sharing with the table? Go for the white bean hummus with grilled naan bread. Want something lightly savory? Smoked salmon toast is a must-try for its truffle cream cheese, capera, fried shallots, and micro-greens. If you seek comfort food, Mini Macs will do the trick. Try white cheddar, roasted garlic, jalapeno-bacon, or parmesan pesto—or order a trio to share with the table.
Day or night, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill has a vast menu for sampling signature Ramsay dishes and cocktails. Popping in for a quick bite and sip before your night out is easy, but if you plan on lingering for a full dinner on a weekend it’s best to make a reservation.
