Instagrammable Cocktails For National Cocktail Day 2021

It’s not difficult to find a gorgeous cocktail in Las Vegas to celebrate National Cocktail Day on March 24. 

Thanks to social media (and some fantastic mixologists), beautiful cocktails are easy to find on and off the Strip. From retro speakeasy classics to tropical tiki blends, you’re sure to find something stunning (and delicious) anywhere in Vegas. 

The Strip

Rockhouse

For the ultimate in (safe) shareable cocktails, Rockhouse has some pretty fun options. A variety of six colorful “Rocktails” come in 100 oz bowls perfect for sharing (priced at $65). Snap a photo of the bowl for your feed before safely splitting it up (the bowls come with ladles and individual glasses) to enjoy.

PBR Rock Bar

Much like the Rocktails at Rockhouse, the “Porch Pounders” 100 oz bowls at PBR Rock Bar are great for small groups to share safely for $65 (the Vegas Vacation even has a pink flamingo amidst the ocean blue cocktail). Looking for something a bit smaller? The 50 oz bowls are $35 and come in souvenir glasses (the It’s Vegas B*tch comes with a silver tiara- perfect for birthdays).

The Oak Room Whiskey and Tequila Bar

Attached to Rockhouse, the Oak Room has numerous cocktails that are aesthetically pleasing while also providing a buzz (the Blind Pig actually comes in a pig glass). With a vintage space, a selection of drink flights (you can even build your own), and a large menu of assorted whiskey, tequila, and mezcal, you’re sure to find a drink that will suit your mood.

Retro meets modern at Commonwealth.
