Walking through The Cosmopolitan, you’ll spot a green exit door with a pink donkey on it inside the Block 16 Food Hall. This isn’t the start of a bizarre donkey-themed horror movie, but it is the entrance to one of the best secret bars in Vegas. Ghost Donkey has the largest mezcal selection in the state, so the right call here is to order a few to try - though they have plenty of good cocktails if that’s not your thing. Between the twinkling lights, neon sign, and their not-too-loud mix of reggaeton, Latin, and cumbia music, this small speakeasy is a great spot for a low-key pregame, date night, or solo adventure.
