Clubs in Las Vegas
The Las Vegas nightlife is world famous, known for clubs that take ambiance and entertainment to a level that will make any avid partygoer or average Joe feel like a high-roller. The clubs in Vegas are usually spacious, ranging from 15,000 square feet and or bigger. Most have resident DJs, along with special music guests for events and holidays.
Hotels and Clubs
The big hotels and resorts in Las Vegas have a selection of lounges and night clubs. On the strip, you’ll find plentiful options offering drink specials, music, food and entertainment. Nightclubs affiliated with hotels pay special attention to interior design, usually setting a theme for their locale. Stocked with full-service bars and speciality drink menus, VIP booths, dance floors and luxurious views of the strip, these clubs are not to be missed.
2010 was a big year for the induction of a few club newbies on the strip. Vanity, a hotly anticipated club, opened in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Designed to mirror a lady’s budoir from a bygone era, Vanity is all about plush and lush. Sensuality meets fine design here in a space that includes pearls and crystals as decorative features. Vanity is open from 10:30 pm to 4am every Friday through Saturday. This new spot features 60 VIP booths, and admission is $20 for ladies and $40 for men. Prices may vary during holidays or promotional events.
Another 2010 addition to the nightclub scene was The Marquee, part of the Tao group of clubs, located inside the Cosmopolitan. The Marquee is open every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10pm to 4am. Admission is $20 for ladies and $30 for men. Cover fees may increase on holidays or during special events.
Other popular clubs include Chateau at Paris, Las Vegas, and Surrender at the Encore.
The unspoken, but well regarded, style code in Las Vegas is dress to impress. “Upscale” is the theme. Ladies would be remiss not to don their best dresses, and gentlemen should know that dress shoes, button-down shirts and nice pants are a must. Those with sneakers, baseball caps, athletic wear or other casual attire will be turned away at the door.
From shopping, to magic shows, food and music, Las Vegas is about elevating sensory experiences. Drinking is no exception. Inside all of the clubs in Las Vegas, you’ll find fully-stocked bars with top shelf liquors. Drink specials are concocted by resident mixologists. Drinks inside a Las Vegas club will be a bit more expensive than in your average dive bar. You might find yourself paying seven dollars for a beer, or nine dollars for a shot. Mixed drinks start around the 11 to 12 dollars range, and exotic mixed drinks--think fruity cocktails and fancy garnish--will run you 14 dollars or more.
Unlike many other cities throughout the U.S., there is no “last-call” in Las Vegas, so you can drink into the dawn.
Thinking about hosting your party at a club in Las Vegas? Whether it’s a bachelorette party or a birthday celebration, Las Vegas clubs can provide the venue for a memorable experience. Reservations can be made ahead of time for VIP booths and table service. For a bigger event with guests of 40 people or more, there are catering options at some of the nightclubs. Catering menus can range from small bites to full courses.
Book your event ahead of time by contacting the clubs. Space may be limited around major holidays.
