While enjoying your drink, your guide will share Vegas stories from the city’s origin to mid-century Mob rule to what’s happening now.
4:40 PM - The Fremont Experience
After finishing your first cocktail, your guide will lead you on an enlightening tour of the Fremont Street Experience. Along the way you will pass by Block 16, which was the original red light district, gambling, and designated bar area in early Las Vegas.

5:45 PM - Parlour Bar at El Cortez
From there we will head to one of the oldest casinos in Las Vegas – El Cortez. This casino is on the National Register of Historic places and will be forever tied to its former owners, the notorious Murder Inc. mobsters Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky. Within the walls of the El Cortez, you will feel the history of old school Vegas and you will be treated to a beer at the vintage inspired Parlour Bar.
6:10 PM - Downtown Container Park
With your drink in hand, your guide will then take you across the street to conclude your tour at one of the newer developments on Fremont Street – Downtown Container Park. This 20,000 square foot outdoor shopping mall and entertainment complex built using repurposed shipping containers is the perfect ending to your happy hour adventure. Before departing, your guide will be able to give you even more recommendations for places to drink, eat, and party in Las Vegas.
“This was such a fun experience. The speakeasy at the Mob Museum is an experience all in itself. *check for secret rooms!* Mob ties are a known thing in Vegas, but Jordan ties in some really cool fun facts that we didn’t know before the tour! We walked into casinos that we never would have without him guiding us.”
“We enjoyed our first tour with Jordan so much we figured why not try another. We love to support local businesses and we are also fans of delicious cocktails. So this tour was a great pick for us! If you like cocktails, unique spots and downtown Las Vegas this is the tour for you!”
