Specializing in frozen cocktails and cold beers, OneBar on Fremont Street is as entertaining as it is delicious. Dancing bartenders throw bottles and glasses in the air while creating unique and tasty drinks. Meanwhile, the nearby Viva Vision, the world’s largest LED Canopy Screen, entertains visitors as they enjoy their flavorful concoctions! Lively and unique, OneBar is one-of-a-kind.

Fun Fact: Frozen drinks at OneBar are cooled with a geothermal, closed-loop cooling system, the only one in Las Vegas. These are the perfect treat on a hot day, or if you want some of that classic Vegas yard drink flair!
