Top 10 Nightclubs in Las Vegas
In town for one night only and can’t decide where to champagne campaign? Here are the Strip’s Top 10 hottest clubs.
Vegas nightclubs are famous the world over for helping visitors do things they’ll regret in the morning. These days, they also welcome the biggest DJs and demand the highest prices for prime VIP table service. Here’s our list of the 10 hottest nightclubs in Las Vegas.
The original: Tao blew into town with a splashy, celeb-drenched premiere in 2003 and never looked back. To this day, it is known as one of the most “fun” clubs – and thus often hosts A-list birthdays like that of Kim Kardashian. None other than Snoop Dogg will count down to 2016. Late-night, expect anything to happen at the Venetian hot spot, such as buckets of glitter to fall onto a packed dance floor, or strangely costumed dancers to come out and take over the stage. Meanwhile, well-dressed women are invited to dance on the high partition dividing the VIP area. Don’t slip.
The Venetian: 3377 South Las Vegas Boulevard, (702) 388-8338 taolasvegas.com
Follow the gold-lined hallway to the mega-dance floor of Encore’s XS, which is accented by ornate chandeliers, shimmering columns, and oversized mirrors so the pretty people who fill XS can check their makeup. The main tables (which command at least $10,000 on a major night) surround the circular dance floor, which stays packed until closing when international superstar DJs like David Guetta, Deadmau5, or Avicii is at the tables.

8. 1 OAK
The exclusive NYC hot spot arrived in town to expand into a larger Vegas-worthy spot for the masses. And it certainly delivers a good time. The inner VIP tables have shielded the privacy of such party-loving stars as Rihanna and Adam Levine, and a “mood director” keeps the crowd going. The anchor club at The Mirage, it has its own valet that opens after nightfall. 1Oak will play with fire for its New Year’s Eve bash – fresh-out-of-rehab wild child Scott Disick is hosting the LA-heavy crowd.
The Mirage: 3400 S Las Vegas Blvd., (702) 693-8300 1oaklasvegas.com
The original Vegas institution (at Bellagio) has been reborn at Mandalay Bay. Hollywood favorite Skrillex is one of the resident DJs, so expect lots of LA types dancing the night away. For New Year’s Eve, an open bar kicks off the night until 10:30, and J. Cole will handle the countdown.
Mandalay Bay: 3950 S Las Vegas Blvd., (702) 632-4700 thelightvegas.com
10. Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop
Paris’s answer to the Versailles gardens, Chateau uses indoor/outdoor space to offer the best in dance club space and plenty of fresh air when you need a break. Britney Spears celebrated her (now long broken) engagement to Jason Trawick there, and many other celebrities have passed through.
