Esther’s Kitchen has a deceptively strong bar menu for a casual Italian spot in Downtown Las Vegas. They mix classics with creative drinks like the Pie Felicia, a sour made with blueberry-infused bourbon and lavender bitters, and they have plenty of bottles of wine as well as affordable by-the-glass options, most around $9-10. If you order a drink at the bar, you can enjoy Pastaholics Anonymous from 5-7pm and 9-11pm when all pastas are half-off. Just make sure you come early since it’s first come, first served and there are only 10 seats.
