Yes, as long as it is out of paper, plastic, or aluminum. And even drinking out of aluminum is banned on New Year's and Fourth of July on the Strip. Both glass and aluminum are banned from the Fremont Street Experience year round.
Clark County commissioners recently passed a ban of glass bottles and containers from Strip sidewalks. People can walk the Strip with closed glass bottles of alcohol as long as they are in a stapled bag with the receipts attached. So people can still drink out of glass in the casinos, but they need to get rid of the glasses once they venture outside onto the Strip sidewalks.
Having an open glass container on the Strip is a misdemeanor in Nevada. Penalties typically include:
- $250 in fines, and/or
- 30 days in jail
Note that Nevada judges usually impose only fines and no jail for a first offense of drinking out of glass on the Strip. For more information, see our article on Nevada "open container" laws.
