If you’re traveling from far and wide to Las Vegas, you want to have the most Las Vegas-y experience, right? You don’t have to limit yourself to just shows, bougie restaurants, casinos, and nightclubs — you could also check out some cool spots for live music!

Las Vegas is no stranger to live music, offering an array of venues where you can catch everything from rock and blues to jazz and country. Some places might be flashy and over-the-top (like the ever-so-swanky Mayfair Supper Club), while others provide a way more casual experience (like Harrah’s Piano Bar), but which ones are actually worth your time?

After 10+ years of exploring Vegas, we’ve weeded out the lame spots from the truly “worth it” ones to bring you our list of the best places for live music on the Las Vegas Strip.

There’s something for everyone on our list! We’ve got Ole Red for those who want country music all day long, the Brooklyn Bowl for a unique concert and bowling experience, and so much more.


The Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails

Get groomed and get your drink on at The Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails, where retro vibes meet modern mixology! This Las Vegas speakeasy is exactly what you’d guess it is… a barbershop by day and a swanky bar and lounge by night.

To access the bar, head into the barbershop and find the white “Janitor” door by the restrooms. Then, enter! You’ll immediately be transported to a luxurious feeling prohibition-era bar that offers a wide selection of whiskeys.

Live bands perform every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. They also have Faded Karaoke nights on Tuesdays if that’s more your style.

Don’t forget to strike a pose in their vintage-inspired photo booth before heading out for the night.

Easy’s

For those with a passion for live music, speakeasies, and finely crafted cocktails, Easy’s Cocktail Lounge is a must-visit. Tucked away behind an unassuming donut shop, this hidden gem offers an intimate environment with a classic vibe reminiscent of the 1920s.

Easy’s is a whole vibe. It’s a beautifully crafted space featuring plush velvet seating and a throwback energy that instantly makes you feel part of a secret society. There’s live music nightly, which helps to turn things up and set the mood! Genres of live music performances range from jazz to blues and everything in between.

The drinks here are next level. Expect elusive spirits new to the market and perfectly poured cocktails exclusive to Easy’s, all designed by a master mixologist. If you’re open to splurging, get something off the Showstoppers menu — these whimsical cocktail creations will set you back $50 a pop, but they’re going to be unforgettable that’s for sure.

Nowhere

Where: Fontainebleau Las Vegas

The name might suggest… not much, but the experience is anything but forgettable. This speakeasy offers a unique departure from the norm with its swanky, large room stylishly decorated in warm hues and plush banquettes.

Enjoy live jazz from 8 PM to 12 AM Sunday to Thursday, and 9 PM to 1 AM Friday and Saturday. The jazz performances are worth the visit alone! From up-close illusions and backgammon to tarot readings, the venue offers a variety of unique entertainments that keep each visit fresh and exciting. Really, no two visits will ever feel the same or feel stale!

Proper trendy attire is required to enter this tucked away spot.

Piano Bar

Where: Harrah’s Las Vegas

Harrah’s Piano Bar is hands down one of the best spots on the Strip for live music! Where else can you karaoke til 9 pm, then catch an epic dueling pianos showdown that keeps the energy high til late into the night?

The piano players are insanely talented, making every song a crowd-pleaser. And you know what? Whenever we’ve been here, the crowd’s always SO into it!

It’s free to enjoy, and the drinks won’t break the bank compared to other fancier spots on the Strip.

Oh yeah, if you’re staying somewhere nearby, be sure to come back to catch Big Elvis! This is one of the longest-running and beloved acts of the Piano Bar. Take a musical ride with The King every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday at 2 PM, 3:30 PM and 5 PM.

Brooklyn Bowl

Located in: LINQ Promenade

Brooklyn Bowl is part restaurant, part bowling alley, and part events venue where the music is rockin’ and the chicken is finger-lickin’ good!

This venue combines the best of food and music for a casual yet unforgettable night. Sink your teeth into legendary fried chicken and Southern favorites like catfish bites and deep-fried pickles while enjoying top-notch acts on stage.

With rock concerts galore and themed dance nights celebrating everything from emo music, Taylor Swift, K-pop, and ’90s hits, there’s always something exciting happening at the venue! Personally, we love when Emo Nite is in town and holds their event here.

Most of the concerts held here are rock-centric, but not necessarily hard rock. You’ll find punk rock, pop punk, and pop rock mixed in with the occasional hard rock performance. If there’s not an event happening that night, why not take your night to the next level by booking a bowling lane for your group?

Juliet Cocktail Room

Where: The Venetian Resort

Head to this trendy lounge if fancy cocktails and live music are what you’re after. The drinks, made by talented mixologists, really take center stage here. But so does the music!

Live music on Friday and Saturday nights creates an entirely different vibe. A baby grand piano and a drummer play a range of genres and eras of music. As the night progresses, live DJs take over, spinning all the best tracks. 

Mayfair Supper Club

WhereBellagio Hotel & Casino

The Mayfair Supper Club is a whole vibe. You’ll get elevated food, drinks, and a show all rolled into one ritzy night.

This unique and theatrical dining experience is inspired by top supper clubs around the world, promising a return to the glamorous eras of Las Vegas and old New York.

Located against the backdrop of the iconic Fountains of Bellagio, this trendy yet nostalgically-themed restaurant offers a feast for the senses with impeccable food presentations, drink selections, and endless entertainment complete with a live band, dancers, and vocalists.

If you’re here on Fridays and Saturdays, the Mayfair After Dark experience is a must. Sundays are when they have their swanky jazz dinner!

1923 Prohibition Bar

WhereMandalay Bay

If you’re looking for a fun, speakeasy-style experience at Mandalay Bay, do not miss the quaint 1923 Prohibition Bar (located inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Bay). This hidden-in-plain-sight bar takes you back to the roaring 20s, complete with period-specific decor, live jazz music, and classic cocktails!

The bar’s menu features a variety of classic cocktails, including the Old Fashioned, Mint Julep, and Sazerac, as well as some signature drinks, such as the Gatsby’s Gin Fiz, Tajin Temptation, and the Speakesy Strange Rush.

The drinks are cool and all, but for music lovers, the real allure lies in the Friday and Saturday live entertainment from 9 pm to midnight – an authentic New Orleans speakeasy experience without the need for a password. Just locate the bookcase and step into history.

Ole Red

Where: Grand Bazaar Shops

Ole Red Las Vegas

How does listening to live country music all day sound? Ole Red Las Vegas, situated at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road, promises an unforgettable honky-tonk experience.

This lifestyle and entertainment brand, inspired by Blake Shelton’s clever hit song, “Ol’ Red”, now has a location right here in Vegas. Since its opening in early 2024, it has become a home base for country music lovers.

The venue’s first and second floors offer a relaxed dining atmosphere during the day and transform into a lively honky-tonk complete with dance floors and VIP areas at night. The third floor provides a sophisticated lounge space for overflow dining and private events, while the rooftop offers a swanky restaurant environment by day and a luxurious lounge experience by night.

The main stage features a 40-foot screen, giving you a kick-ass country experience no matter where you sit. If you’re looking for a more exclusive party, then the rooftop stage is for you.

Losers Bar

Where: MGM Grand

Losers Bar at MGM Grand

Losers Bar is a laid-back country bar that has become an institution in Nashville. You can now enjoy the same relaxed atmosphere with a side of Southern hospitality in Vegas!

Spending a few hours here means spending the evening with Nashville country music artists at an intimate, no-frills venue for live performances. With country music nightly, you never know which celebrities may pop up on the Losers’ stage!

Losers offers live music from the afternoon until late night (plus a large dance floor) and a selection of classic spirits as well as a variety of beers on tap. They also have some of the best drink deals on the Strip!

For the latest happenings, be sure to check out their calendar to see who’s performing.
