Las Vegas certainly rules the night. Celebrities visit them and top deejays take over the ones and twos. If you want to see your favorite musician/deejay/celebrity/reality TV star, chances are you can if you pop in to one of these top nightclubs in Las Vegas.
1 XS Nightclub
In a city where everything seems excessive, XS Nightclub leads the way. This club goes the extra mile with a glitter-laden tile staircase at the entrance, gold-plated molds of naked women, a gold-plated 10-foot chandelier that rotates over the 1,100-square-foot dance floor and VIP booths donned with gold-embossed crocodile skin. Here you can gulp down the Ono, a $10,000 cocktail made with Dom Peringon Oenothèque champagne and Louis XIII de Remy Martin Black Pearl cognac. The party even pours out to the pool area with rows of cabanas overlooking the dancing crowds.
2 Marquee Nightclub
If bumping and grinding to the beats of top deejays are your thing, Marquee is the place to be. At 60,000 square feet, it’s one of the biggest nightclubs in Vegas. Get down to the tunes in the Main Room headed up with a 40-foot LED deejay booth and projection stage surrounded by plush coliseum-style banquette seating and two dance floors. Above and overlooking the Main Room is the more intimate Library with a fireplace, billiard table and vintage books. Downstairs, you can find the Boom Box Room, an intimate boite with Strip views and a separate deejay. And outside you can play at the dayclub with its eight cabanas with individual infinity pools and 10 three-story bungalow lofts complete with living quarters and an open air party-deck.
When Kim Kardashian and LeBron James want to celebrate, they head to Tao. While the club tends to draw massive crowds, you can still find intimate places to hang out if you don’t want to be in one of the two main rooms. And it all starts with the scantily clad ladies bathing in the clawfoot bathtubs and a 20-foot Buddha overlooking the scene.
4 Hyde Lounge
The Bellagio's nightclub shows off the best views of the Fountains at Bellagio. Hyde Lounge features a Renaissance-era Italian villa design. By day it doubles as a lounge with food and swanky cocktails created by a master mixologist.
5 1 OAK
This fashionable nightclub caters to celebrity entertainers and upscale-chic crowds in its ritzy setting. Scott Disick from "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is a regular here.
1 OAK Nightclub, Mirage, 3400 Las Vegas Blvd. S.; 702-792-7900
