Choosing the Right Las Vegas Nightclubs and Pool Parties
Choosing the right nightclub in Vegas can be a daunting task. Fear not! We compiled the ultimate guide for choosing the perfect nightclub for YOU. Once you decide on a nightclub, you can choose to either buy tickets, buy VIP entry or reserve bottle service to get in.
BEST NIGHTCLUBS OVERALL
Hakkasan took the Las Vegas nightlife by storm in 2013 by signing the top EDM DJs including Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki and Hardwell. Neatly located near the center of the Strip inside the MGM Grand, Hakkasan is regarded as one of the top clubs around the World.
In Vegas, XS at the Encore will always be at the top of the list. Combining a breathtaking decor with superstar DJs such as Avicii and David Guetta, XS is a must-see for anyone coming to Las Vegas. During the summer, XS also hosts “Nightswim” which is a pool party at night.
Light Nightclub at Mandalay Bay is a created by Cirque du Soleil and Light Group, one of the most successful nightclub group. The sound system, lighting and Cirque du Soleil performers really sets this nightclub apart from the rest.
BEST POOL PARTIES OVERALL
Encore Beach Club
Encore Beach Club (“EBC”) is one of the most successful pool parties in Las Vegas for good reason. Large and spacious, this pool party can hold up to 5000 people at any given time. EBC shares its DJ lineup with XS so you can expect top DJs such as David Guetta, Deadmau5 and Diplo. Similar to XS, EBC also holds pool parties at night during summer.
Daylight Beach Club
Daylight Beach Club at the Mandalay Bay was modeled after Ushuaia, a very popular outdoors club in Ibiza. This club features prominent artists such as Krewella, Nicky Romero and Alesso. “Eclipse” is the pool party at night for Daylight Beach Club.
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.
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.
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.
