About The Sand Dollar Lounge

Located at the gateway to Las Vegas’ booming Chinatown district, The Sand Dollar Lounge is a local Vegas landmark enjoying the rush of a second life. Originally opened as a blues bar in 1976, The Sand Dollar quickly became a draw for iconic musicians including Muddy Waters, B.B. King, and even Mick Jagger over its first 30 years. Hit by hard times, The Sand Dollar closed its doors in 2013, but its spirit would not let it rest and within two years was purchased and reignited by hospitality veterans Anthony Jamison and Nathan Grates. 

Honoring the tradition and history of the iconic Las Vegas venue, The Sand Dollar Lounge has reclaimed its beloved spot as a premier live music venue with free entertainment nightly, adding rotating craft beer selections, an extensive whiskey collection, seasonal craft cocktails by some of the city’s best bartenders, an amazing pizza kitchen, and table-top gaming in a smoke-free environment. The Sand Dollar has been named “Cocktail Bar of the Year” (KNPR’s Desert Companion) and “Best Dive Bars” (Thrillist), and “one of the city’s top pizza spots” (Las Vegas Weekly). Last year it also won a Pinnacle award for the Miracle On Spring Mountain pop-up from the Public Relations Society of America.

The Sand Dollar Lounge is located at 3355 Spring Mountain Rd Ste 30, Las Vegas, NV 89102. Call them at (702) 485-5401, visit their website, and check them out on social media, Facebook  and Instagram.
