The Best Nightclubs in Las Vegas

Travel

Jewel Nightclub

Jewel Nightclub

Jewel Nightclub/Tony Tran

After spending all day at the wildest pool parties on the Strip, you may want to chill out, recover, and relax with a good book in the silence of your hotel room. Or you can double down and spend all night at one of the hottest nightclubs in Las Vegas. Each one is a prime destination for being seen, hooking up, and paying way too much for a Jack and Coke. But you’re not here to drink. You’re here to dance, pump your first, and hear music from the world’s most loved (and highest paid) DJs. Think of it as high-intensity training for the next edition of EDC. So get familiar with the best nightclubs in Vegas — and then make friends with someone who can get you on the VIP list. 

Omnia

Omnia

Omnia/Hakkasan GroupCaesars Palace

Dance the night away under a crazy high-tech chandelier
When it comes to nightclubs, you can’t go wrong with Omnia. After opening in 2015, it still has that “like-new” club feel with a rooftop terrace that shows off killer views of the Strip from Caesars Palace. The star power is huge. Calvin Harris plays semi-regular Friday night sets and Tiesto stops by when he isn’t busy at sister club Hakkasan. Other headliners include Zedd, Martin Garrix, and Steve Aoki. Technology is almost as big an attraction as the DJs. The main room — modeled after the Metropolitan Opera — is famous for its massive 22,000-pound chandelier that hovers above the dance floor and moves to the music. It was designed with your Instagram feed in mind. The smaller club-within-a-club Heart of Omnia is the space formerly occupied by Pure. Sundays usually feature Latin music on the terrace

Kaos/PalmsThe Palms

Indulgent party spot makes full use of its outdoor pool deck
When Station Casinos renovated the Palms, the company went all-in with Kaos — a nightclub and dayclub that blends almost seamlessly from its indoor dance floor to an expansive pool deck. At the center — a 65-foot-tall bronze statue of a naked headless figure. (And yes, he’s the only one allowed to go nude by the pool.) Palms invested heavily in its headliners, which include Cardi B, Marshmello, and G-Eazy. Here’s a tip — if you want to skip the cover charge and long security lines during the day, book a brunch reservation at Greene St. Kitchen. The patio overlooks the club and guests have direct access to party after their meal.  

Hakkasan

Hakkasan

Hakkasan Nightclub/Yoder ProductionsMGM Grand

Three-level club has its own restaurant, valet, and groundbreaking light show
Hakkasan has been around since 2013, but is keeping things fresh with a new grid over the main room billed as the world’s largest kinetic light art installation. It’s a spectacle of changing lights, colors, and imagery that only enhances sets by EDM headliners like Tiesto and Zedd. Head downstairs, where the smaller Ling Ling Club hosts open-format DJs and the Ling Ling Lounge (keep ’em straight) has its share of chill and hip-hop. Pre-game next door at Hakkasan Restaurant — a Cantonese fine dining spot with direct access to the club — and take advantage of the free Hakkasan valet for those with dinner or VIP table reservations. It’s worth it to avoid the long walk from the MGM Grand parking garage.  

Jewel

Jewel

Jewel Nightclub/Powers ImageryAria

Modern club with high-tech effects and themed VIP rooms
Jewel is a little smaller than some of the other clubs in Vegas, but that only adds to the energy and atmosphere at this ultra-modern party spot. Between the hip-hop of Tyga and the EDM of Steve Aoki, Jewel makes a point to have an eclectic lineup of resident headliners. The wow-factor is felt in the illuminated staircase by the entrance and the LED video effects near the stage. Five large VIP rooms overlook the main floor — each with its own theme. For example, the G.O.A.T. pays tribute to American sports while the Blind Tiger is modeled after a vintage speakeasy. Flawless Mondays is a busy industry and locals’ night.   

Marquee

Marquee

Seva KalashnikovThe Cosmopolitan

Three distinctive rooms and a pool deck 
Marquee allows you to choose your own experience. Party hard in the main room, where an elevated DJ booth gives clear views of the button-pushing and fist-pumping as it happens, or hang by the pool where you can soak in the lights of Las Vegas. The Boom Box on the other hand, is more of a cocktail lounge — but don’t worry, you can still invest in bottle service — with windows that overlook the Strip. The Library has bookshelves with a pool table and fireplace. The DJ lineup isn’t as heavy on star power as some other Vegas clubs, but Marquee more than made up for it by locking down a Travis Scott residency. When the sun is out, Marquee Dayclub is one of the busiest (and most tightly packed) pool parties on the Strip. 

XS

XS

XS/Wynn Las VegasEncore at Wynn

DJ booth rotates between indoor and outdoor spaces
XS has been around for 10 years now — a lifetime in Vegas — but instead of trying to rebrand itself or tweak its identity, the venue remains fresh and timeless with frequent design updates. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have big-name residencies by the likes of Drake, the Chainsmokers, and David Guetta either. A rotating DJ booth separates the main dance floor and an outdoor pool deck that hosts Nightswim parties on Sunday nights. The place is all about indulgence with real gold decor and 10,000 individual light fixtures to keep the mood in check. You’ve also got 170 VIP tables and cabanas for maxing out your credit card on bottle service. 

On the Record

On the Record

On the RecordPark MGM

A playful, retro vibe for nightclubbers who don’t always like nightclubs
While the nightclub scene has its share of redundancy, On the Record does its best to put a fresh spin on the concept. It’s really more of a glorified lounge, decorated in vintage concert posters, a DJ booth that resembles a Rolls Royce, and a fireplace in the center of an area known as the Living Room. The outdoor patio has a British double-decker bus serving drinks and, if that’s not enough to keep your attention, head to one of three karaoke rooms — each one dedicated to a different decade — and belt out your own entertainment. There’s also a secretive speakeasy-style bar where the focus is on cocktails. Overall, the playlist skews retro with a fair share of ’80s and ’90s hits you might actually recognize.

Encore Beach Club

Encore Beach Club

Encore Beach Club/Wynn Las VegasEncore at Wynn

Outdoor pool party where you can swim day or night
Formerly known as Surrender, this outdoor venue was given a name change to reflect its shift to an all-swim format. Day, night, doesn’t matter. Dress codes are beyond relaxed. EBC has a small indoor area, but it’s really about the expansive pool deck and towering palm trees. The club shares most of its headliners with XS, including the Chainsmokers, Kygo, and DJ Snake. There are enough cabanas, bars and even a few blackjack tables to keep things interesting.

1OAK

1OAK

1OAK/Hakkasan GroupThe Mirage

Old-school club with a timeless image and vintage touch
The name stands for “one of a kind” — an odd choice since the club has counterparts in New York and Los Angeles. Don’t worry about it. The Vegas edition has been around a while, but still has plenty of charm and character with black leather couches, chandeliers, and neon signs. Even the artwork isn’t something you see often at other clubs. It’s an easy-to-navigate layout, although a second room for VIPs is tucked out of sight. The resident DJs crank out a steady diet of EDM and top-40, although occasional headline acts lean toward rap and hip-hop. If you want to check out the venue outside club hours, modern lounge crooner Matt Goss does regular shows at 8pm.   

Tao

Tao

TaoVenetian

Dark, dramatic nightclub operates above an Asian fine dining restaurant
With a pool upstairs and an Asian restaurant downstairs, Tao tends to stay busy and is one of the more versatile clubs on the Strip. Bathtubs filled with rose petals line the entranceway, and while the outdoor balcony could be a little bit bigger, it still gives you a chance to escape the chaos and grab some fresh air while overlooking Las Vegas Boulevard. The club is divided into different rooms — with DJs mixing up formats — alongside dark stone and dramatic Asian decor, as well as dancers performing in enclosed cases. Yes, Vegas can get away with that in 2019. Regular DJs include Chuckie, Vice, and Justin Credible. Worship Thursdays is a long-running industry and locals’ night.   

Drai's

Drai's

Drai’s Nightclub/Erik KabikThe Cromwell

Hip-hop headliners, pool, and views from 11 stories above the Strip
If you’re looking for a club with great views, Drai’s is the best choice — day or night. The party destination is on the top floor of the Cromwell hotel with sweeping views of the Strip. (Pull out your phone and start snapping.) The main stage is indoors although acts often perform on the outdoor pool deck as well. Rap and hip-hop fans will be happy to see the likes of Migos, Gucci Mane, Meek Mill, Lil Wayne, and Wiz Khalifa. Fans of Jersey Shore will be happy with regular sets by DJ Pauly D. Get the full experience during Swim Night Thursdays. A smaller sister venue, Drai’s After Hours, is tucked away in the Cromwell basement — geared toward partiers who want to wind things down during early morning hours, but aren’t quite ready to go to bed. 

Light Nightclub

Light Nightclub

Light NightclubMandalay Bay

Massive video wall and hip-hop headliners
DJs cover EDM, house, and top-40, but the headliners lean toward rap and hip-hop with residencies by Rick Ross, Saweetie, and Jeezy. Catch rapper E-40 on Function Fridays. Yet the biggest attraction here is the large video wall behind the DJ booth, which is in clear view of the club’s staggered levels. Overall, Light has an industrial feel with everyone pretty much facing the same direction.   

Chateau

Chateau

Chateau/Anthony MairParis Las Vegas

Outdoor nightclub is all about atmosphere with a rooftop deck overlooking the Strip
After its indoor space was annexed for Beer Park’s indoor expansion, Chateau is now strictly a rooftop party spot. That’s not a bad thing. The club’s strength was always its outdoor patio, which sits underneath the Paris casino’s half-size Eiffel Tower replica and overlooks the Bellagio fountains across the street. Hang out underneath string lights with a vodka cranberry or work up a sweat in the Vegas air on the dance floor. (Hey, it’s a dry heat.) Chateau doesn’t invest heavily in big-name DJs, but the vibe is a lot more loose and less intimidating than what you might come across at larger clubs.

Why, build your own strip club of course.
Vince Neil has pledged to revolutionize the world of Vegas strip clubs with the hard rock and hard bodies at Girls, Girls, Girls. GGG is a club where hip-hop and techno are not tolerated and the girls are preferred tatted and pierced. Vince has spared no expense and the club itself is almost as beautiful as the girls within.

Las Vegas Strip Club Ettiquette with Tips from a Dancer

For the time being, Las Vegas is closed. And that definitely includes Sin City’s lineup of strip clubs. (Okay, so one strip club got creative and offered a drive-thru show, but the rest of the clubs remain shuttered.) We’re confident that Las Vegas and its party scene will open again, and when you’re ready for a bachelor/bachelorette party or night out, we have a feeling the parties in Vegas will be epic. But don’t show up looking like a newbie. There’s Las Vegas strip club etiquette to follow. To get the inside info, we asked a Las Vegas dancer for her advice on Las Vegas strip club etiquette. Check out our guide, and get ready to make it rain. 

Planning on visiting a topless pool in Vegas? Check out our ultimate guide to Las Vegas’ sexiest topless pools.

Bellagio Las Vegas Bellagio Las Vegas/Oyster

Let’s get right to the point, Las Vegas strip clubs aren’t cheap. Just getting in the door costs money at the flashier clubs. For instance, there’s a $20 daytime cover at Spearmint Rhino Las Vegas — and the price jumps up to $50 per person after five o’ clock. Deja Vu Showgirls Las Vegas charges $45. And once you’re inside the club, you need to account for high prices of drinks, food, lap dances, and tips (more on tips below). Lap dance costs differ from club to club, and even from dancer to dancer and time of day. Expect to pay at least $20 for the duration of a single song, plus another $20 for a tip and maybe a drink for the dancer.

The more money you spend at a Las Vegas strip club, the better treatment you’ll get. Clubs offer everything from limo service to bottle service (with a private server who prepares cocktails to order at your table from a bottle you pre-purchase) to VIP karaoke rooms. Of course, Las Vegas strip clubs that cater to locals, and not tourists, tend to have cheaper drinks and don’t charge covers. Slower weekday nights often run drink and food specials. But the experience won’t be the glitz and glam scene you might be expecting. If you want to go big at a big name Las Vegas strip club on a Saturday night, plan to spend at least a few hundred dollars per person.

For male strip clubs, like Kings of Hustler, patrons can buy tickets in advance for a better deal than showing up at the door. There are also packages for transportation, Champagne, and cocktails.

Most Las Vegas strip clubs have a dress code of some sort — especially for male patrons. A good rule of thumb is to dress up — especially if you need to get past a bouncer. Men should avoid shorts, jerseys, open-toed shoes or dirty sneakers, hats, and baggy jeans. But not every club has a strip dress code. At Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club Las Vegas the only banned clothing is sweatpants.

If you’re not sure what to wear, you can’t go wrong with dark fitted jeans, a button-down shirt, oxford shoes, and maybe a sports coat if the strip club is high end or has a long admission line. (If the club is packed, the bouncer decides who gets in — and they favor people who look like they have cash to burn). Dress code rules do slightly relax for VIP patrons or those who reserve a table or private room. See above about being treated better by spending more money.

Women can wear almost anything, with the exception of flip-flops or visibly stained and worn clothing. Anything you’d wear to a sexy dinner date (or even a swinger’s club) is likely to get a woman past the bouncer.

Cocktail/Oyster

Do Las Vegas strip club dancers want patrons to buy them a drink? To find out, we went straight to the source and asked Lauren Phillips, a dancer who has performed at Deja Vu Showgirls Las Vegas. Her take? “I’m not a big drinker, but the thought is appreciated because patrons are spending money.”

Bouncers are on the serious look out for overly intoxicated people trying to enter Las Vegas strip clubs. Why? Drunk people can be obnoxious and may be rude or difficult to deal with. Plus, strip clubs want you to spend money at the bar — and if you’ve already had too much to drink, they can’t serve you.

If you’re at a Las Vegas strip club, you need to tip the dancers. Yes, that includes patrons who sit in the back and are too shy to come to the stage. Some performers (those with name recognition and big fan bases) do get paid by the club for an appearance. According to Phillips, her rates include the number of songs or minutes she dances. But full-time dancers are shaking it just for tips, so be generous. You can place cash on the stage, or the dancer might indicate she wants tips tucked in her lingerie — try to read her physical cues and always ask before touching a dancer.

Another way to tip? Make it rain. Phillips says, “My favorite way to get tips is the ‘making it rain’ way. When patrons throw a bunch of money at me, this always makes me feel good!”

This is the most important piece of Las Vegas strip club etiquette: you are never entitled to touch a dancer. Regardless of how much money you spent or whether you’re receiving a personal lap dance, the dancer decides if and when she wants to be touched. Of course, there are areas of the body that are always off limits. Go over the line, and you might find yourself walked out by security. Phillips agrees. She says, “My best advice is to always ask a dancer if it’s ok to touch and in what area.”

Las Vegas strip at night Las Vegas/Oyster

Obviously, you need to tip dancers and performers inside a Las Vegas strip club. But don’t forget the rest of the crew. Phillips advises, “I recommend patrons tip the dancers, waitresses, and bartenders. I also recommend tipping the cleaners that clean the stage and the pole, which could be waitresses and/or bartenders.”

Don’t ask a dancer if you can pay for sex. It’s against the law.

The Nirvana Pool at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas The Nirvana Pool at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas/Oyster

The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas reigns supreme, thanks to its fun party atmosphere and sleek rooms. Its five-acre pool area is a draw, as are two live-music venues, multiple restaurants that include a steakhouse and Nobu, a large casino (complete with go-go dancers), and a 14,000-square-foot nightclub. There’s even an on-site tattoo parlor.

Las Vegas Venues Temporarily Shut Down Due to COVID-19

The famous slogan “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” sadly does not apply to the outbreak of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Many of the major venues occupying the infamous Sin City have issued statements regarding the temporary suspension of operations for the health and safety of patrons and workers. The entertainment industry has taken a major hit due to the pandemic, and as of this article, the end is not in sight. 

Among the venues to close their doors are Hakkasan, XS Nightclub, Encore Beach Club, Omnia, and more. Each is prioritizing the wellbeing of their clients and employees and will be conducting a professional deep clean and sanitization process to make sure when they do reopen nothing is at risk of contamination. 

If you were affected by one of these cancellations, head over to the venues’ websites to contact the club for information on refunds or rescheduled shows. 

Stay tuned as more information regarding closures and postponements comes in. We advise all to practice the basic protective measures against the new coronavirus. Wash your hands multiple times per day for at least 20 seconds. Plan to avoid spaces of large gatherings. Try and avoid touching of the face. 

The key is to not panic. Most people who are exposed to the virus experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more extreme for higher risk age and health demographics. Take care of yourself and you will be helping others.

Sorry, were clothed Las Vegas Strip, strip clubs dark amid

There’s no pole dancing during a pandemic.

“Sorry, we’re clothed,” reads the digital signet outside Little Darlings, a now-shuttered Las Vegas strip club that had stubbornly tried to remain open early on in the coronavirus outbreak.

The fully nude jiggle joint had tried to stay afloat by advertising “coronavirus-free” dancers, nude hand sanitizer wrestling and drive-thru strip shows — but to no avail.

The club sits just off a Vegas Strip that is now stripped of life.

The entirety of the famed boulevard has been shut down for the first time since the assassination of John F. Kennedy, according to The Guardian.

Like the nearly completely desolate Times Square, the abandoned Strip is a haunting illustration of an invisible pandemic.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - MARCH 31: A billboard displays the message The sign at Las Vegas strip club Little DarlingsEthan Miller/Getty Images

Stragglers wandering through the country’s gambling epicenter are greeted with messages of hope on screens from closed casinos still patrolled by security guards. Palace Station’s sign announces, “Doors closed, hearts open.”

The closures are expected to devastate the state’s economy.

The Nevada Resort Association penned a letter to Congress asking for federal relief. The group estimated last month has warned the state has lost an estimated $2 billion from canceled meetings and conventions, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

The shuttered strip could lead to nearly $39 billion in economic losses, the group said.

“This is an unprecedented economic situation that will have catastrophic financial ramifications for individuals, families, businesses and state and local budgets across the state,” the association’s President and CEO Virginia Valentine, wrote in the letter.

The only double the producers could find for Sir Christopher Lee was the circus’ real lion tamer, who Lee described as being “half my height”. In order to make the situation credible, 6’4″ tall Lee was shot in close-up, so the height differential would not be too obvious to the audience. According to Lee, he wore a black mask through 90% of the movie anyway. See more »

South Florida’s Ten Best Music Festivals

People don’t typically think of cityscapes or any place near concrete buildings as the ideal setting for a music festival, but in many ways Miami is the optimal locale to host a gathering of music and art freaks. The Magic City boasts plenty of event spaces and venues, such as Mana Wynwood and the North Beach Bandshell, that have become go-to spots for festivals both large and small.

The diverse community also welcomes artists and festivals of all genres, from hip-hop to EDM to world music to indie rock. Add to that year-round, postcard-perfect festival weather and a beach backdrop, and Miami rivals the views and ambiance of any isolated farm in Tennessee’s countryside. Plus, there’s Wi-Fi here, so you can update your Instagram story and make your friends jealous in real time. Here’s a rundown of some of the best music festivals in South Florida.

Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival

Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival

Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival. It’s South Florida’s Bonnaroo. Okeechobee Fest’s lineups have been so impressive since its inaugural edition in 2016 that fans have begun snatching up tickets before the first tier of artists is even announced. And much like festivals such as Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza with years of lineups under their belt, Okeechobee has begun offering layaway payment plans for eager fans on a budget. Okeechobee organizers came out swinging from the beginning, booking headliners Kendrick Lamar, Skrillex, and Mumford & Sons on their first go-round, and last year, they brought George Clinton, a collaboration between Usher and the Roots, and Solange at the height of her power.

9 Mile Music Festival. First organized by Bob Marley’s mother to pay tribute to the memory of her late son, 9 Mile Music Festival, previously known as Marley Fest, will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2018. The event remains the undisputed top reggae festival in South Florida despite plenty of friendly competition. 9 Mile also offers fans a chance to help the community through suggested donations of canned food items for all festival attendees. The sponsors collected millions of donations for South Florida’s and Jamaica’s neediest communities, all while bringing iconic acts such as the Marleys and Nas to historic Virginia Key.

Ultra Music Festival

Ultra Music Festival. It’s the fest Miamians love to pretend to hate. We love to complain about the annual I-95 traffic armageddon and kids in Day-Glo tanks and shades invading the Metromover, but the truth is we’re proud that one of the world’s most popular and flocked-to festivals calls Miami home. It is just a couple of years shy of its 20th anniversary, and every subsequent festival that’s come to South Florida has Ultra to thank for showing the world Miami can host an event worthy of the world’s admiration. Ultra also became a destination festival for electronic music fans long before EDM took over the airwaves and mainstream American pop culture in the past decade.

Tortuga Music Festival

Tortuga Music Festival. It’s a sea of red Solo cups, cowboy hats, Daisy Dukes, and Miami’s country bros. Over the past few years, a powerful rift has divided the country music world between the pop stars on country radio and a fresh crop of lesser-known singer-songwriters making their rebel way out of Nashville’s underground scene. Tortuga Music Festival sides firmly with radio-friendly pop country, and it’s paid off. For the past five years, thousands of fans have crowded Fort Lauderdale Beach to catch genre heavyweights such as Luke Bryan and Tim McGraw, as well as newcomers like Maren Morris. Past performers have included the Zac Brown Band, Chris Stapleton, and Alan Jackson.

Afro Roots World Music Festival

Afro Roots World Music Festival. Like Ultra, Afro Roots is one of Miami’s longest-running festivals. Next year will mark two decades since Jose Elias of Miami’s Community Arts and Culture nonprofit first shone his spotlight on the music of the African diaspora at the inaugural celebration at Tobacco Road. Twenty years later, the festival calls the North Beach Bandshell home, and Elias’ organization has earned grants from the Knight Foundation for continued dedication to bringing world music to one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world.

SunFest

SunFest. One side effect of the recent uptick in smaller, more affordable regional festivals across the nation is that lineups have become more selective about grouping artists with overlapping audiences along genre lines. EDM gets Electric Daisy, and folk gets the Newport Folk Festival. Though this model has the benefit of bringing together communities of fans of select genres, it’s ultimately not reflective of the diverse listening habits of the Spotify shuffle generation. SunFest keeps the Lollapalooza and Bonaroo model of throwing every genre onto different stages and trusting that today’s fans will spend some time at all of them. The 2016 lineup included performers Duran Duran, Steve Aoki, Fitz & the Tantrums, and Jason Derulo, and this year’s SunFest hosted performances by Ziggy Marley, Widespread Panic, and Tori Kelly.

Rolling Loud FestivalEXPAND

Rolling Loud Festival. After two years at Soho Studios and Mana Wynwood, Rolling Loud made the jump to Bayfront Park in 2016, but its appearance at the outdoor amphitheater in 2017 was not without controversy. Putting “Loud” in the festival’s name probably didn’t help appease neighbors, but after a battle that nearly led to litigation, the sold-out festival went on to its most successful iteration to date. Acts included Run the Jewels, Lil Wayne, Future, and the reigning King of Rap, living legend Kendrick Lamar, who gifted the audience with one of his first performances of songs from his latest album, Damn.

Overtown Music and Arts Festival

Overtown Music & Arts Festival. It can be frustrating and disheartening to get to a music festival and realize you’re surrounded less by music aficionados like yourself than bored trust-fund kids looking to pay for any kind of escapism that money can buy. Ticket prices can often make festivals inaccessible for the people who are most passionate about the musicians and artists. Overtown Music & Arts Festival was born out of a desire to remedy this problem via a festival that’s free and open to the public but doesn’t skimp on the superstar power. The 2017 lineup included performances by CeeLo Green and Keyshia Cole, and in past years, acts included Estelle, Kelly Price, and Melanie Fiona.

III PointsEXPAND

III Points. It’s the little electronic music festival that could. Since 2013, Miami has watched III Points evolve through beginner’s kinks and logistical nightmares, like last year’s disappointing last-minute cancellation by LCD Soundsystem. But the fest’s organizers have pushed through the challenges, and this year’s edition is among the most anticipated music events in recent memory in South Florida. This year’s lineup is the most impressive yet, with headlining sets from the XX and the South Florida debut of Gorillaz. III Points is also pretty affordable considering the caliber of artists, so don’t sleep on this one: Tickets will probably sell out well in advance of festival weekend.

House of Creatives Music FestivalEXPAND

House of Creatives Music Festival. This one is only in its second year, but House of Creative’s wildly successful launch in 2016 and impressive 2017 lineup earn it a spot on the list of South Florida’s best festivals. Last year’s inaugural get-down at the North Beach Bandshell included performances by Crystal Castles and the Drums, as well as an otherworldly psychedelic beach party by the Flaming Lips. This year’s expanded lineup promises to be just as mind-bending, with headlining sets from Alt-J and MGMT.

About Drai’s Nightclub | The Complete Guide

Operating from the top of the Cromwell Hotel & Casino, Drais Las Vegas is located at the heart of the strip, and showcases a stunning panoramic view of the city’s lights and the Bellagio fountains. The modern LED visuals are incorporated throughout the indoor and outdoor spaces, and enhance the music played by top EDM DJs. This club was designed with comfort in mind, and there is plenty of room throughout the space which is a fresh alternative to highly packed areas frequently found around tables and club bottlenecks. The wow factor when entering the club is electrifying, and partiers are introduced to the ambiance from behind the DJ booth. Drai’s Vegas is the pinnacle of luxury and stimulation, and is exactly what one would expect from the next iteration of Las Vegas nightlife. Those on our guest list can check in at the entrance of the club.

The nightclub is one of the most spacious nightlife venues on the strip. They took care to design extra wide walkways, areas by the multiple bars, and transitions around the club. It is definitely noticeable when the nightclub starts to get packed. Our favorite part of Drai’s Las Vegas is the ceiling center piece. It is infused with LED technology and moves and transforms above the dance floor. If you are looking for a Drais promoter you have landed in the right place.

Those looking for Drais Nightclub bottle service, table reservations, pricing, and menus can connect directly with a Drais VIP host here.

How To Get To Drais Nightclub

The entrance to Drai’s Nightclub is separate from the entrance to Drai’s Afterhours, even though they are both inside the Cromwell Hotel & Casino. For the nightclub head to the center of the Casino area. The valet for the Cromwell is quite small and can get jammed up. Leave plenty of time to travel to this property since their may be delays in getting dropped off. The guest list check in will be on the left side of the club entrance.
The Cromwell Hotel Address: 3595 S Las Vegas Blvd

Drais Dress Code

Dress code is required to ensure entry into Drais Nightclub, especially for men. To avoid any problems getting into the club it is recommended that men wear nice pants or jeans, a collared shirt or sport coat, and dress shoes. Please avoid shorts, sandals, hats, and athletic attire. If you are not sure if your clothes will pass the dress code play it safe and dress nice. We’ve also put together a list of what shoes meet the dress code. Women can almost get away with anything they want; however, we have seen instances where flip flop sandals were looked down upon. A cute or sexy dress that fits your body type with a nice set of heels will always work. See more Las Vegas fashion advice for women.

Review of Drai’s

One of my favorite clubs in town. I recently came to Drais for the first time and was presently surprised. My girls and I didn’t make it outside, but had a great time on the dance floor. While it did get crowded there was plenty of spaces to find room.
