Now that the summer pool party season has come to a close, most people think all the weekend daytime parties in Las Vegas are gone until the spring. Enter The Palms’ notorious Ghostbar Dayclub Saturday afternoon soiree, which makes its triumphant return this month. Dubbed the GBDC, this is the proper place to keep the daytime party vibe going strong during the winter months.
Ghostbar is a stylish lounge and nightclub that sits atop the 55th floor of The Palms hotel, just off The Strip. The outdoor patio boasts a stunning 360 degree views of Sin City that is among the best you will encounter, unless you have the superhero ability to scale casino walls. There’s even a glass floor dancefloor towards the edge of the patio that allows you to see all the way down to the ground level while your dancing to the thumping beats that emanate from inside. The main GBDC party takes place here, with the fun weekly themes and costumes standing out amidst the Ghostbar’s swanky decor, which includes ample amounts of luxurious leather sofas that surround the main dancefloor. Throughout the day there are plenty of elaborate bottle service presentations, dancing trains that snake through the entire venue and loads of spontaneous confetti explosions.
GBDC parties take place every Saturday afternoon at The Palms from 1-6 p.m. until the pools open in late February or early March depending on the weather. Each week a different DJ or celebrity host takes over GBDC, but these aren’t your typical Las Vegas residencies. GBDC will bring in major YouTube stars like Jenna Marbles, or have Chumlee from “Pawn Stars” and Hodor from “Game of Thrones” play DJ sets to a packed house. GBDC also encourages attendees to sport playful costumes from superhero attire to ugly Christmas sweaters as the party’s official motto is to “get cray all day.”
GBDC has become so popular that other hotels are looking to duplicate this concept, but the original party is still the best in city. With an eclectic lineup of DJs, celebrity hosts and plenty of themed parties to look forward to this year, GBDC will continue to serve as the go-to destination for daytime shenanigans in Sin City during the fall and winter months.
