Ahh, finally! Our favorite thing since sliced bread. 

Nightclubs are the creme de la creme of Las Vegas - they’re what bring people from all over the world, and Las Vegas has no shortage of world-class nightlife that will give you a night to remember (or not). 

Las Vegas nightclubs are like none other - from the lights to the productions to the celebrity DJ’s to the stunning venues. 

By the end of this post you’ll have a better idea of the venues around town, and which ones you’ll want to cross off your bucket list when you make the big move! 

#1 Hakkasan

Hakkasan, located in MGM Grand,  is easily one of the best nightclubs in Las Vegas and has a variety of experiences - whether you’re looking for a swanky dinner / lounge, or lively experience with thousands of people dancing to EDM, Hakkasan has it all. 

Hakkasan has taken the crown as one of Las Vegas’ top nightclub venues since its opening in 2013. 

Hakkasan offers four distinct nightlife experiences combined with two stories of “dining decadence.” Above the Hakkasan restaurant (which you should absolutely add to your itinerary), the venue features a luxurious lounge space, an outdoor garden bar, and a massive dance floor. You can head over to the Ling Ling Lounge, an Eastern-inspired area on the third floor that only plays hip-hop and top 40, unlike the main dance area which is EDM primarily. You’ll be able to see world-class DJ’s including Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki, and many more.

The club itself has three separate sounds throughout its expansive multi-level 75,000 sq. ft venue, which offers three different (and very impressive) nightlife experiences. You can shake what your momma gave ya in the high-energy main room, with world-class lighting and sound, and performances by Illenium, Martin Garrix, Alesso and Steve Aoki to name a few. For a change in pace, you’ll find open-format DJs spinning in the Heart of Omnia, an ultra lounge that is about the size of many other Vegas nightclubs. And if you want to have an evening under the stars, head over to the patio outdoor terrace where you can soak in the breathtaking panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip. 

"OMNIA" MEANS "EVERYTHING" …And true to that name, it is all you want it to be.
