Las Vegas Nightclubs Battle It Out With Top EDM Talent

XS Las Vegas

Views rule at XS Nightclub. You’ll be standing/partying right behind the iconic Bellagio Fountains. When they go off it’s like you’re getting a private show. And when they die down you still get to feel special for being on the backside instead of the sidewalk. Once you finally look back inside, you’ll find a nightclub and lounge that is exactly as elegant as you’d expect from Bellagio, while still being relatively casual. If the lake in front of Bellagio had a beach, Hyde would be that awesome camp where all the cool kids go every summer. You can get in too. You don’t have to go settle for that camp that doesn’t even have an extensive cocktail menu. Get your spot at Hyde, party hearty and don’t even think about doing something lame like making a lanyard. What is a lanyard for anyway?

Show us what you got LiFE!

LIFE

What do you get when you remodel a classic hotel and turn one of the showrooms into a nightclub? No, not a terrifying, clowns-only dance party with stage diving into giant cream pies. What the hell kind of hotel were you picturing? We’re talking about what was a showroom at the Sahara and what is now MARQUEE nightclub at SLS. It’s newer than some of the others, but that’s not stopping this spot from being action-packed and amazing. They ditched pretty much all the show/audience dynamic and turned it into an experience. Lights, music and a conglomeration of people at the entrance make LiFE one of those places where you might just be one in a crowd, but you’ll never feel small. That’s our cute little way of saying we have no idea why they made the “i” little in their name. We just follow the style. It’s cool, though. We’d rather L the F out of E-thing anyway.

Shout outs to Light Nightclub and Krewella, just because we can.

Hakkasan Las Vegas

Cirque du Soleil created a nightclub. It was called Light. And it was good. It may not be a religious experience, but it’s definitely something to behold. We’ve had a lot of fun with that metaphor, but really Hakkasan doesn’t bother. The giant wall of light kind of hammers home the message that you’re in a club that values all the brilliance it can shine out. Light is more artistic and deep than a lot of clubs in this crazy world. That’s no surprise given the whole Cirque du Soleil connection. No matter where you look you’ll find something eye-catching, even if it’s just another club kid dressed for the night. Have fun at this club, and no matter how drunk you get, don’t try most of the things you see. You’re probably not that bendy and have not done the necessary stretches. We don’t want you to pull anything, unless… No. We’ll just let that one go.

Marquee in all its glory, and it’s got a lot of glory to go around.

Marquee Las Vegas

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, as a whole, is pretty much one drunk girl named Kimmie away from being a nightclub all by itself. So it’s not terribly shocking that Marquee, the goto nightclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, is as spectacular as it is. The main club has everything you want: loud music, dance space and enough booze to make you forget how much you’re spending throughout the night. But Marquee doesn’t stop at one awesome club. Forget that noise. They’ve also got the Boombox, a club unto its own that’s more private and intimate, and the Library, which is pretty much the best library you’ll ever go to – unless you’re one of those crazy people who still reads books. Seriously, get a tablet like the rest of us. But probably don’t bring it to Marquee. That’s just a waste of perfectly good dance time.
