You don't go to Las Vegas for a good night's sleep; you go to have the time of your life. We're going to let you in on a little Sin City nightlife secret: Resorts with their own nightclubs love to secure special treatment for their in-house guests. That can mean anything from access to the VIP guest list to discounted bottle service to getting your bachelor or bachelorette party in to see the hottest DJ at the last minute. Another perk of choosing a resort with a nightclub? At the end of the night, when everyone else is standing (or barely standing) in a taxi line to get back to their hotel, you'll already be in your room ordering post-party grub from the room service menu. Check out these Las Vegas resorts with the wildest nightclubs, and go have some unforgettable fun.
If you’re looking for sexy aerial dancers, intense light shows, and Top 40 DJs (ahem, Calvin Harris), then you’re looking for Omnia at Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino. The multi-level nightclub is one of the biggest in Vegas, and it includes an outdoor terrace inspired by Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” with a wide panoramic view of the Strip. Indoors, the showpiece is the high-tech chandelier made from eight oval rings. It weighs over 22,000 pounds, looks like a spaceship over the dance floor, and moves in sync with the music. It should come as no surprise that Justin Bieber celebrated his 21st birthday at Omnia.
Hakkasan at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino is one of the biggest and wildest clubs in Vegas. Revelers flock to the iconic club’s five levels (note that two of the levels are actually devoted to the club’s restaurant), and celebrity visitors include everyone from Taylor Swift to Jennifer Lopez. The smaller Ling Ling Club provides a more mellow spot for an intimate cocktail, but the main event is in the mezzanine. Halloween is an especially epic time to visit Hakkasan, as the club gives away over 20K in cash prizes for the sexiest costumes.
Unlike other resorts that shut down their pool party after dark, Drai’s Beachclub & Nightclub at The Cromwell keeps the hip-hop party going well into the wee hours at its multi-level rooftop pool and nightclub space. It offers two full-service bars, over 75 bottle-service tables, dance poles, and pools. Dancers decked out in elaborate costumes and mesmerizing light shows bring out the nighttime vibe. Bold pink accents, palm trees, and uninterrupted skyline views make for unforgettable photo ops — especially if you can catch Ciara or Tyga in the frame.
Marquee, on the second floor of the Cosmopolitan, is especially popular with electronic music-loving party animals who appreciate sound and visual effects. The Library is the VIP spot, but Marquee is celebrated for having one of the best main rooms on the Strip, complete with multiple bars and a drawbridge over the DJ booth that lets dancers perform above the DJ while he or she spins. A huge wall of windows overlooks the Las Vegas Strip, but it’s difficult to look away from the raging light shows (and scantily clad patrons) inside the club.
XS nightclub at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas was inspired by the curves of the human body, which are on full display around the Encore’s lavish European Pool. Guests can party indoors with pyrotechnics, lasers, and a DJ booth, or outdoors by the pool in chic cabanas. A 10-foot rotating chandelier and nude mannequin torsos are part of the overall look. For big spenders, there’s a $10,000 Ono cocktail, served in a jewel-encrusted glass.
Hyde at the Bellagio is the most sophisticated nightclub on this list, as it serves as more of a swanky lounge than a pulsing dance party. That said, it still gets rowdy, especially on DJ nights. The best tables in the house combine bottle service and leather banquettes that overlook the iconic Bellagio fountains. Bachelorette parties are especially popular here — it’s considered an excellent venue to pregame (or post-party) and flirt on a smaller scale.
TAO truly paved the way for the entire revamped and upgraded nightclub scene in Vegas. The three-story Asian restaurant-turned-lounge, nightclub, and beach club spans over 60,000 square feet inside The Venetian Las Vegas. The Opium Room is famous for hip-hop, while EDM fans are happy to dance in the main room. Bottle servers can descend from the ceiling to deliver a sparkler-infused bottle of Champagne. Make sure to look for the famous bathtub models immersed in rose petal baths. The signature piece is the hand-carved 20-foot-tall Buddha towering above an infinity pool filled with Japanese koi.
