Nightclubs All venues require a stylish nightlife attire and if you a part of a male only group try to connect with girls during the day and ask them to accompany you to the clubs. Otherwise they might deny you an entry!
Shows Las Vegas offers a huge variety of shows to its visitors. From Production Shows (such as ‘Vegas!The Show’, ‘Titanic’, ‘Phantom of the Opera’, …), Cirque du Soleil, Magic Shows over Headliner and Comedy Shows to Adult Shows – guests are spoilt for choice. Most shows are expensive and maybe not worth the ticket price. This is why I recommend checking out the ‘Tix4tonight’ shops that are spread over the Strip if you are not looking for a specific event. http://www.tix4tonight.com/
Nightclubs in Las Vegas - The Strip
The popularity of night clubs in Las Vegas are changing as fast as in any other city. This is why I do not give any recommendations. However, here is a short list is some good venues:
Pure @ Caesars Palace, 3570 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas http://www.purethenightclub.com/pure Tue, Thu–Sun 10pm–closing. Stunning views over the Strip from four combined venues containing outdoor seating areas and several dance floors.
XS @ Wynn/Encore, 3131 Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas http://xslasvegas.com/flash2/#/visit Bring enough time if you want to get inside the club. It is the most crackin’ nightclub in Las Vegas and usually the waiting line goes through the whole casino. Being inside, the area is illuminated by a variety of soft neon and natural lights. Besides, huge statues are spread over the place. Outside you find a huge pool area with people jumping in from time to time giving everyone a free show.
Tryst @ Wynn, 3131 Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas http://www.trystlasvegas.com Smaller club with an outdoor area facing the Lake of Dreams and its waterfall. The club is located next to the Parasol Down Bar. The light is tinted in cool color hues of red and the deck opens from the dance floor. Nice atmosphere and not as packed as XS.
Marquee @ The Cosmopolitan, 3708 Las Vegas Boulevard South Las Vegas http://www.marqueelasvegas.com/ This club is divided into a main room with gigs from top DJ’s from all parts of the world, some smaller areas and a pool deck. In the main room you will have a giant show with lasers, strobe lights, confetti, and a multi-story video wall. Since the club just opened this place still gets very crowded!
Shows in Las Vegas
KÀ @ MGM Grand, 3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/en/shows/ka/default.aspx Unlike the common abstract visuals you know from Cirque du Soleil, KÀ tells a story tale of Imperial Twins being on a journey to fulfill their destinies. Instead of a conventional stage, the show is presented on two giant moving platforms and five smaller lifts and platforms that are floating through a bottomless space. Ticket prices from $69 – 150.
O @ Bellagio, 3600 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/en/shows/o/default.aspx O (after the French ‘Eau’) deals with water, being more precise: a swimming pool filled with 1.5 million gallons of water. The show takes place in, around and on the pool featuring synchronized swimming, trapeze acts and floating performances. Ticket prices: $93.50 – 150.
Museums in Las Vegas
The Neon Museum Las Vegas, 821 North Las Vegas Boulevard http://www.neonmuseum.org/ Huge bone yard that contains 150 old casino signs located on Las Vegas Boulevard and Bonanza (across the street from Cashman Center). The most famous signs amongst them are from the Moulin Rouge, Silver Slipper, Stardust, Desert Inn, El Cortez and Caesar’s Palace.
Besides the bone yard exhibition, the museum started restoring the old signs. The finished ones are already displayed along the Fremont Experience in Las Vegas downtown. Visitors can do a self-guided tour along the restored signs starting in front of the ‘Neonopolis’ that is located at Las Vegas Boulevard near the Hacienda Horse and Rider. The tour ends at 3rd Street’s ‘cul-de-sac’ adjacent to The Fremont Street Experience. During the walk you will pass signs like the original Aladdin’s Lamp, Flame Restaurant, Chief Court Motel, Andy Anderson, Red Barn, Wedding Information, Nevada Motel, and Dots Flowers sign.
Tours through the bone yard must be scheduled at least one week in advance. Check their website for the most recent tour dates. The ticket price is around $18.00 per person for a day tour. The night tours with illuminated signs are $25 per person.
