Now that you know which nightclubs and pool parties are the best, it’s time to pick the ones that are best for you and your group. XS and Light are highly rated nightclubs but you shouldn’t go there if you hate electronic music. Pick the nightclub that fits your group’s budget, music preference and location preference.

Best General Admission/Ticket Experience

Not interested into the whole VIP experience? Buying general admission tickets is the most affordable way to get into Las Vegas nightclubs. XS is a great nightclub for general admission goers because of its large and spacious area allowing up to 11,000 guests. Even without a table reservation, XS is the best spot to dance, drink and mingle. Hakkasan’s large dance floor allows a large number of guests to enjoy a good view of the DJ.

Best Outdoors Experience
Drai’s, XS and Surrender

If you think you’ll need a break from the high energy nightclub and want to get some fresh air, consider a club with a outdoors area. The outdoors area generally allows more room to move around. The music is also not as loud as the indoors area.
