How To Do Vegas on A Budget: Seven Budget-Friendly Vegas Hot Spots

It’s Friday evening in Vegas. You just checked in to your hotel and are looking for a good time and, more importantly, a good deal. Where can you get a variety of happy hour specials and free entertainment all under one roof?

M Resort Spa Casino, the gorgeous Forbes Four Star resort located a few miles from the Las Vegas Strip, has all the key elements to memorable night out on the town, all within footsteps of your M Resort hotel room. To make it simple, we’ve chosen the top seven must-visit venues that offer great discounts, to create the perfect Friday night.


4 p.m. Start your evening off right with ½ priced appetizers at Anthony’s Gourmet Burgers & Brews. Opt for the ultimate potato skins ($4.5) and crispy buffalo wings ($5.5) and pair them with an ice-cold beer.

5 p.m. Make a stop at the mouthwatering Asian restaurant Jayde Fuzion for 1/3 off bottles of wine and specially priced dishes like Korean street tacos ($4.5), pan-fried pot stickers ($5) and chicken lettuce wraps ($4.5).

6 p.m. A change of scenery will bring you to the upscale, contemporary atmosphere of Anthony’s Prime Steak & Seafood where you’ll enjoy specially priced bottles of wine and ½ priced appetizers in the bar. Bacon-wrapped dates ($7) and an order of scampi ($8.5) – jumbo prawns sautéed in white wine and lemon – are sure to hit the spot!

7 p.m. Hopefully you’ve worked up an appetite and are looking forward to a decadent prime rib dinner ($19.99). A juicy, 12 oz. prime rib with creamy horseradish and au jus, served with a hot cup of New England clam chowder, creamed spinach and a loaded baked potato, served on Fridays at Anthony’s Gourmet Burgers & Brews is a great deal!

9 p.m. After dinner head over to the chic and stylish underground wine cellar, Hostile Grape, where you’ll enjoy cozy lounge furniture, a vast selection of premium wines by the glass and live entertainment by acoustic musicians. Best of all, there’s no cover!

11 p.m. Every Friday night, Ravello Lounge brings you live entertainment and no cover charge with your two-drink minimum purchase. The first three Fridays in July will feature a special performance by blue-eyed soul singer-songwriter and season five winner of America’s Got Talent, Michael Grimm.

1 a.m. Your feet are probably a little sore and your stomach is craving a midnight snack. Well it’s never too early (or too late!) for a good breakfast and Vig Deli has two great late-night specials available from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Night owls and early birds will enjoy a short stack of pancakes for $3.99 or a savory 6 oz. New York steak, two eggs, hash browns and toast, for $6.99.
2 a.m. You’re just not ready for the night to end, so on your way back to your lavish Resort Room, you find yourself at 32° Draft Bar for a nightcap. You’ll love the selection of 96 draft brews on tap, which will make the perfect end to your Friday night in Vegas.
