Whereas some cities thrive on the weekly day-life, the desert oasis of Las Vegas is at its best when the sun sets behind the wall-like mountain ranges. It’s no secret to the rest of the United States that Las Vegas is a nightlife city, and when tourists finally land at McCarran Airport, the first thing they crave is a taste of Sin City after dusk. With a near endless amount of activities, though, it’s quite easy to grow overwhelmed when one finally steps foot into the city. If you want to survive during the Vegas nightlife, be sure to follow a few simple guidelines.
Stay Ahead of the Lines
Anybody that expects to enter a nightclub simply by waiting on the long, snaking line at the club’s entrance is sorely mistaken. Most nightclubs select its patrons based on sex appeal and the mix of the group – a group of all men are less likely to be chosen for entry over a group of all ladies. There is one simple, yet costly way to stay ahead of the game – prearrange reservations for a bottle service. For a price that can range anywhere into the thousands, Vegas clubs’ bottle service can be the difference between a night of waiting and a night of partying. Typical bottle service will grant VIP access to the club along with a guaranteed seat at one of the venue’s coveted VIP tables. Vegas bottle service also grants at least one round of premium liquor.
- Choose the Right Location
There are too many nightclubs in Las Vegas to count, so winding up at the “wrong” one is really an easy mistake to make. To avoid wasting time and money at a venue not worth the effort, it’s best to stick to some of Sin City’s higher end locations. Clubs like Pure, XS, and Marquee (found respectively at Caesar’s Palace, Encore, and the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas) are the best of what’s to be found in Vegas. Decorated entirely in 24K gold accents (include nude statues of the club’s employees), XS astounds its guests with a level of class and opulence like none other. Introduced to the Las Vegas nightlife in 2010, Marquee is the top destination for Sin City’s singles. Mingle with the hottest of Las Vegas’ party life while getting sucked into Marquee’s party atmosphere. At Caesar’s Palace, Pure mixes the luxury of a Grecian bathhouse with the excitement of a Las Vegas nightclub. Spearmint Rhino dominates the Las Vegas strip clubs scene being the only gentleman’s club in town with up to half an hour wait to get in.
Live the Nightlife During the Day
Experience everything Las Vegas’ nightlife has to offer without waiting for the midnight hour. Several of Sin City’s adult only resort pools host pool parties that rival any night in a club. Special guest DJ’s, drink specials, and a crowd of gorgeous people mixed with the luxury of poolside cabanas, cooling water, and the perfect tan make pool parties like Rehab Las Vegas and Encore Beach Club the perfect day retreat and Vegas bachelorette party option for the ladies. Every Sunday during the Hard Rock Hotel’s pool season, Rehab takes over the exquisite resort pool to house thousands of individuals in what is known as Las Vegas’ hottest pool party. There’s no doubt that Rehab is to the daylife as Marquee is to the nightlife. The Encore Beach Club mixes the luxury of hotel life with the subtleties of a poolside party. There won’t be a dry body in the house (so to speak) as guests are welcome to oil themselves up with tanning lotion and park themselves by Encores inviting pool.
