If caffeine is your only reason to get out of bed in the morning, sleep in Downtown Las Vegas so you don’t have far to go for the best coffee around. Downtown (or DTLV as the locals lovingly call it) has become a new cultural hub for music, art and the liquid gold we call coffee. Here’s five places to visit in Downtown Las Vegas to get a great cup o’ joe.


Get your caffeine on at these Downtown Las Vegas Coffee places

Inspire News Cafe

This coffee shop offers Italian style coffee in an intimate cafe with comfortable seating. On the walls, you’ll find art and culture magazines for your enjoyment. There’s even an Espresso Book Machine that allows you to self-publish your own paperback book. Connected is the Inspire Theatre, a 200 seat performance venue for live entertainment.


The Beat Coffeehouse and Records

Transport yourself to somewhere akin to Seattle at the Beat, where they sell a large collection of vinyl records, and regularly offer live performances. Housed in the corner of the Emergency Arts, the building always has readings and small galleries, as well as a food menu and delicious coffee.


The Black Cup Coffee Co.

Merely a window at the entrance of Downtown Container Park, it’s a great place for a hot cup of caffeine at night because they’re open until 11 p.m. on weekdays and even later on the weekends. Stay out late AND stay awake.


Bronze Cafe in The Center

Also offering a menu with vegan and vegetarian options, the Bronze Cafe is housed inside The Center, which hosts performances, events, and LGBTQ support groups.


Makers and Finders

Found in the Arts District, Makers and Finders is an urban coffee bar with house made syrups and specialty lattes. Showcasing a menu of Latin and American comfort foods, you’ll want to try an arepa or the flan, but you can also get a croissant or bagels and lox. Don’t let the fancy food fool you; their coffee is a darn good find.



Still not convinced those previous coffee places were serious enough about their java? PublicUs takes their coffee seriously. Seriously. Brews here will not only give you the kickstart you crave (and probably need), the food fulfills those morning hunger pains. The atmosphere is a clash of urban and outdoor aesthetics with plastic trees emerging from faux-picnic tables and natural light overflowing from every window.


If you’re in need of a cup of coffee that makes life worth living again, try any of these five great spots in Downtown Las Vegas. And when your caffeine rush ends, tuck in for a night at the cheapest motel in Las Vegas: the Downtowner Motel. With rooms starting at just $25 a night, you can vacation in Vegas on a budget so you can save your money for those specialty lattes.
