Downtown Vegas, known for the famed Fremont Street Experience, one-of-a-kind art and… coffee? Yes, coffee!  Downtown may be newer to the boutique coffee shop experience but is quickly turning into a caffeine-enthused mecca. And the quickest way to burn some of the rush is on RTC Bike Share. Check out a self-guided tour of some of the best coffee in DTLV with our Coffee Route Guide.

  • PublicUs: Located in the Fremont East District, this canteen-style restaurant also features a coffee bar with crafted coffee drinks such as Espresso Old Fashioned, Black Swan, and Butter & Spice Latte. While you’re sipping, take a look around and check out some of the eclectic books on the shelves.
  • Mothership Coffee Roasters: Check out Mothership’s DTLV location within Ferguson’s Downtown! Serving up specialty coffee to downtown residents and visitors alike, Mothership offers a robust selection of specialty coffees and crafted coffee beverages that any coffee lover can appreciate. 

  • Bungalow Coffee Co: One of the Art District’s newest coffee shops is definitely worth checking out. Not only do they feature an extensive coffee selection, but they also have a full menu. Brunch, anyone? Bonus: Snap an Instagram-worthy selfie in front of the Big Sip Energy wall. 

  • Makers & Finders: Makers & Finders has been an Arts District staple since 2014. In fact, they were the first coffee shop to establish in the Arts District. Founded on the three pillars of coffee, Latin food and culture, this vibrant restaurant-coffee-bar should not be skipped on your DTLV quest for coffee. 

  • Golden Fog Coffee: Do you like a side of art with your coffee? If your answer is yes, Golden Fog is your spot to visit! Check out their monthly rotating art gallery by local murals as you sip on your crafted coffee beverage. Golden Fog is a fully vegetarian cafe exclusively serving Dark Moon Coffee, made using a Sanremo Cafe Racer.  A classic October drink, the Pumpkin Latte is featured at Golden Fog this month!

Try something new or stop in for an afternoon pick-me-up to get you through the rest of your day. Don’t forget to snap a photo while you’re inside any of the five featured coffee shops and share on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for a chance to win RTC Bike Share swag or even Golden Knights game tickets during October for the 5-year RTC-Bike Share anniversary! Post your photo publicly and include #RTCBike5 and @RTCSNV to enter.
