Downtown Happy Hour Discovery: Chart House at Golden Nugget

July 7, 2014

Downtown Las Vegas has more than its fair share of great happy hours. Our latest discovery is the happy hour at Chart House inside the Golden Nugget.

The Chart House happy hour runs from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Our favorite libation on the discounted menu? The signature Fleur D’Lis cocktail, with Malibu coconut rum, Midori melon liqueur, DeKuyper Peachtree schnapps, orange and pineapple juices.

It has a slice of pineapple, so this cocktail could technically be called a “health drink.” Technically.

There’s also a happy hour menu with goodies like lettuce wraps and spinach and artichoke dip for $5, and Ahi Nachos, calamari and tempura shrimp for $6.

See the full happy hour food and cocktail menu on the official Chart House site.

Beyond the great food and libations, one of the best things about the Chart House is its 75,000-gallon tropical fish aquarium.

Ask about the gargantuan, green moray eel. It’s sort of a mascot.

Chart House restaurant and bar are located near the Golden Nugget’s Rush Tower. So, from the casino, heard toward the main hotel registration area, by the pool, and take a hard right. You’ll figure it out. This ain’t The Strip. You can get everywhere from everywhere.

Have fun!

Update: Chart House recently won a readers’ choice for “Best Date Night” restaurant in Las Vegas Weekly’s “Best of Vegas 2014.” Read more.
