June Food and Drink Specials
This June, Rí Rá Las Vegas celebrates summer with the Shandy beer cocktail ($5.50), a mix of Irish lemonade and beer. Guests can enjoy two variations of this summertime drink – Smithwicks and Red Lemonade or Harp and White Lemonade.
Also this month, the pub invites guests to take part in a Mussel Celebration ($13.95) as they serve up freshly-caught mussels in a choice of broths. This popular delicacy features succulent mussels, steamed to perfection and served in one of three broths – Guinness with bacon cream, whiskey garlic butter or citrus curry sauce – with a freshly-baked Crostini.
Locals Lunch and Dinner Special
Rí Rá continues to offer locals 40 percent off lunch and dinner food items every Friday throughout June. Guests must present a valid Nevada ID to receive the discount. This special cannot be combined with other offers.
Guests can enjoy live, authentic Irish music nightly during dinner and evening hours with many of the bands coming directly from Ireland.

Whether audience members are seeing The Cray & Dempsey Experience for the first time or are faithful followers, they can expect the best during each and every performance. The Cray & Dempsey Experience is a rude, crude Irish band who keeps rocking.

About Rí Rá Las Vegas
Crafted in the warm pub style of 19th century Ireland, Rí Rá Las Vegas is located inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Place. The authentic Irish pub features a multitude of artifacts that were carefully restored in Wicklow, Ireland and shipped to their new home in Las Vegas. Rí Rá Las Vegas contains an authentic Victorian Shop bar that began its life in Ireland in the 1880s, a whiskey bar adorned with an original glazed jewelry cabinet from 1900, an oak floor from a whiskey distillery and an 8-foot-tall, 500-pound carved plaster statue of St. Patrick dating back to 1850. The pub hosts live entertainment seven nights a week in a music room constructed with artifacts dating back to 1890 from the Olympia Theater in Dublin, Ireland. Born and raised in Dublin, Rí Rá Las Vegas owners David Kelly and Ciaran Sheehan have been close friends since they were 14-years-old. Kelly and Sheehan later partnered with Jay Luther, whom Kelly met while working for Guinness. Rí Rá Las Vegas is one of 11 pubs the trio has opened in the U.S.
