Here my review of the nightclubs I have been to. These are all my photos, feel free to use them. If you're going to see a big name DJ (Calvin Harris,David Guetta, etc) they won't be on stage until around 1-2 AM. That being said you will still want to get there before midnight, the lines get long and and even if you have VIP entry you still get to wait. Most nightclubs in Vegas are going to require dress shoes and a collared shirt. Shorts are usually not permitted. Best bet is to check the individual club requirements online. No sense in going somewhere and being denied entry. Guys can expect to pay around $30 for entry. In some cases you can find a host online and get in free. Ladies typically pay 50% less than guys and often times can get in for free with a guest list. The venues at Wynn and Encore are going to be the nicest, classy type places. You'll need to wear proper attire if you want to get in. Mixed drinks are around $20. In most cases you will want to have tickets before showing up here. Lines can be very long. XS Large outdoor venue, smaller inside club. Surrender This is where Encore Beach Club is with smaller club inside. Music can be very loud inside the club, powerful bass, loud vocals. Louder than most other venues. The outdoor area is reasonable, you can still have a conversation. Hakkasan (MGM) Large multilevel club. Lots of lighting, confetti and C02 (fog). Lower level can get crowded. Omnia (Caesars Palace) Multilevel venue with a smaller outdoor patio area. This nightclub has the most powerful bass I have ever heard, with extremely impressive low frequency response. By far the most impressive sound system I have heard in a nightclub. This was the most crowded nightclub I have ever to. The lower level is very uncomfortable to navigate. Lots of unique lighting and a fascinating chandelier. Drais Large venue with a great outdoor area that has a decent view. My favorites: Rooftop venues with some type of outdoor patio or balcony. These places provide the best view of the town and surrounding area. Good place to take newbies, as you get a view you won't find anywhere else. Also a good option for the older crowd. The music won't be too loud in the outdoor areas, not usually crowded inside or out. Foundation Room (Mandalay Bay) Decent size venue with balcony area. You can sign up for the guest list on the Foundation Room website. Otherwise there is often a $20 cover after 10PM. May be cheaper or free for women. Skyfall Lounge (Delano) Larger venue with plenty of space and good size balcony area. Free admission. Closes at midnight (1AM Friday & Saturday) This is a quiet place where you can have a conversation. Ghostbar (Palms) Decent size venue with Large outdoor balcony. Possibly the best view of the strip. Voodoo Lounge (Rio) Large venue with large outdoor area. If you can find a host, sign up for the guest list. You won't find free admission cards in the casino anymore. Mandarin Bar (Mandarin Oriental) Not a nightclub and does not have a patio or balcony, but it is a nice bar with good views of the strip. 23rd floor. High end cocktails and a selection you won't find many other places. Open til 1 (2AM Friday & Saturday) Their website has photos of the view, if you're never been here it's worth a look.
