Seven of the hippest coffee shops in Las Vegas



The Sambalatte coffee shop in Boca Park.

The most difficult part of being a hip, young person isn’t scouting out under-the-radar bands, or knowing where the best thrift shops are.

It’s finding coffee shops with baristas in oversized glasses and man-buns, lattes served in mason jars and Instagram-worthy decor.

Las Vegans are in luck: The city is in the midst of a coffee renaissance.

Here are seven of the valley’s hippest coffee shops.

1. Sunrise Coffee | 3130 E Sunset Rd, Las Vegas

2. PublicUs| 1126 Fremont Street, Las Vegas

Trees growing out of the center of the tables, obscure dinosaurs and vintage novelties decorating the walls and friendly customer service are just a few of the things you’ll find here.

3. Cafe Darak| 8665 W Flamingo Rd #105, Las Vegas

This urban coffee bar serves Latin comfort dishes and unique drinks. The decor is ultra modern, with a gray brick wall and a steel color palette. If you are looking for a twist on your typical drink, try the Lavender Latte or Mexican Mocha.

Open Monday-Saturday, 7 a.m. - 4 p.m., Sunday, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

5. Serenade Coffee Bar & Desserts | 7920 S Rainbow Blvd, Las Vegas

Serenade Coffee Bar & Desserts

A quiet shop with twinkly lights, a cityscape mural on the window and some of the most delicious honey toast, Serenade is hidden in the corner of a shopping center, so it’s the perfect spot for studying.

Open Sunday-Monday, 11 a.m.- 2 a.m.

6. The Beat Coffeehouse & Records | 520 Fremont St, Las Vegas

The Sambalatte coffee shop in Boca Park.

Located in Boca Park, this Samba Latte location is right around the corner from clothing store R+D Hipster Emporium. If that isn’t enough to convince of the shop's cred, it has two stories with warm, inviting decor and a great outdoor seating area. The Nutella Latte is amazing, and the latte art? Definitely Instagram worthy — no filter needed.

Open Monday & Tuesday, 7 a.m. - 8 p.m., Wednesday & Thursday, 7 a.m. - 9 p.m., Friday & Saturday, 7 a.m.- 10 p.m., Sunday, 7 a.m. - 8 p.m.
