Nightlife in Las Vegas   (Life After Dark in Vegas)
Nightclubs and Adult Clubs
This Page Last Updated on 01/05/13 11:38 AM 

Over the past 19+ years our Internet readers have inundated us with requests about the "insider" information on what to do in Las Vegas after dark.  Las Vegas is truly a city that never sleeps. 
My staff has "nothing" to do with this page. After 42-years of me being around this city, the following reviews are the opinions of Richard Reed, owner of Insider Viewpoint of Las Vegas.  I am single and spend a large amount of time in the night life of Las Vegas.  Below are my reviews and ratings of Nightclubs, Bars, Lounges, and the following page reviews Topless Clubs, Total Nude Clubs and more!
Since this is a family web site, it is my intentions to give an overview of all the possibilities available in Las Vegas.  For those looking for things to keep children busy that information is on another web page.

We live in a world where they make ice cream in 500+ flavors, the reason, everyone does not like the same thing.  Several places listed below I may revisit and some I will never visit again!  Respectfully. Richard Reed / CEO

" 9 "  N9NE

To the novice, this may only look like an upscale restaurant, but stand back and watch.  Awesome Friday and Saturday night crowd.

A good mixture of visitors and locals.  Located inside the Palms casino.

Bank nightclub is a complete makeover of the Light nightclub located inside the Bellagio Casino.  The new design now offers multiple party areas and a great place to dance and drink the night away.  Opened late December just in time for New Years Eve. 
Bare Pool Lounge

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water, Bare Pool Lounge brings a whole new dimension to hanging out at the pool.  Bare Pool is open daily and has a European-style sun bathing secluded by towering palm trees.  Located at the Mirage Casino, this is a must for all you hard bodies.

One of the newer nightclubs to enter the nightclub list in Las Vegas.  This two story large nightclub is filled with famous people and great place to people watch.  With an excellent view of the strip. Located inside the Paris Casino.
Cleopatra's Barge
Rated "5"
If you want to dance on a replica of an Egyptian ship that is docked and still moves in 5 feet of water, this is your place.  Wed - Sun live bands. 9p - 4a.  Interest crowd, many high rollers from the casino, located inside Caesars Palace.
Ditch Fridays
Rated "6"
Another hot spot when the summer time invades Las Vegas.   Located at the Palms Casino pool area, every Friday this becomes the place to be during the day. 
Encore Beach Club
Rated "9"
Encore Beach Club has set the standard for trendsetters seeking an upscale and lively pool atmosphere usually found in European hot spots. The 60,000 square foot venue is a lush oasis featuring 40-foot palm trees surrounding three tiered pools, daybeds with private safes and 26 cabanas outfitted with refrigerators and flat-screen televisions. Located at the Encore Casino.
Rated "6"
An after hours club that is extremely popular.  Located downstairs in the Bills Gamblin' Hall Casino, Drai's is a restaurant that turns into a very late night crowd four days a week. (Wed-Sat).  Great DJ sounds, tons of people, hang out until noon, but wear something cool, it is a hot spot for many reasons.
Foundation Room Nightclub
Rated "6"

The Foundation Room is a members only club located on the top of the Mandalay Bay main tower, however on Monday nights they open the doors to non members and the fun begins. The interesting rooms, quaint atmosphere and a breath taking view of the Las Vegas Strip is truly an experience every one should experience.
Rated "6"
State-of-the-art sound and lighting blanket every room of Gallery, where renowned DJs will spin intoxicating music until the sun rises. Candlelit glass fireplaces are scattered throughout the venue, creating a sexy and mysterious glow in all the rooms. Located in Planet Hollywood Casino.
Ghost Bar
Rated "6"
If you are looking for a great view of the city, this is it. However, it gets really crowded and unless you are a high roller, get ready to stand in a very long line just to get in.

Hard Rock
Casino Center Bar
Rated "5"
Once famous for having a great crowd at the center and side bars, now looks like the southern California reject invasion every weekend.   Still an interesting place to hang, all types float through the doorway.
Rated "7"
One of the newer night spots in Las Vegas, Haze.  Haze is located in the new CityCenter, inside at Aria.  As CityCenter gains more attention and people including locals spend more time in the huge complex, it is going to be a success, it will make this place a sure winner.
House of Blues
Rated "7"
A very interesting late night spot, filled with interesting people.  Should your desires be that of mixing with the jet setters, drinking, or dancing the night away, this is it. To be even more elite, join the Foundation Room, a mere few thousand dollars a year dues you are in, if they accept you.  Both are located inside Mandalay Bay Casino.
Hyde at Bellagio
Rated "8"
Recently opened.... Hyde Bellagio features an expansive terrace that showcases Las Vegas' most celebrated landmark, the Fountains of Bellagio.

Krave is the only alternative lifestyles nightclub on the famous Las Vegas Strip.  This club is located in the Planet Hollywood Casino, the Miracle Mile of shops.  
Rated "8"
Lavo nightclub is sister club to the famous Tao nightclub.  Lavo is located in the Palazzo casino. This restaurant, lounge and late night nightclub is a hit among locals and tourists alike.  Extremely well appointed, this is one of the real hot spots of Vegas.
Rated "8"
Arrived at the end of summer 2007, LAX is the replacement for the old Ra nightclub, located inside the Luxor Casino.  Much larger than the old Ra, the new expanded version has multiple venues within itself including a restaurant and private VIP club.    
Rated "8"
Another newer nightspot of Las Vegas, Marquee is the sister to the Tao Group previous nightclubs. This multi-million dollar nightclub is located within the new Cosmopolitan Casino, which might be its biggest draw back.  Financial experts say this casino is doomed with costs versus income, but until the end, this is one hot spot you need to experience.
Rated "7"
Located in the Palms Casino, one floor above the famous Playboy Club is Moon Nightclub.  As you can image, the flow of partiers going through the four nightclubs within the Palms Casino is amazing.  This club has great music and a great view of the city. It might be a little small, but it is a great place to party.
Playboy Club
Rated "7"
Yes Dorothy, this is not Kansas and Las Vegas has once again revived an old standard and taken it to new heights.  The Playboy Clubs were all closed more than a decade ago and now the one and only has reopened in the Palms Casino.  Great view of the city from this club and the females are not bad to look at either!  This club also has gambling within it, so bring lots of money.
Rated "9"
One of the most prominent nightclub to hit Las Vegas.  Located inside the famous Caesars Palace Casino, this 36,000 square feet, two story, indoor and outdoor nightclub has something for everyone. Unique decor and a free flowing room makes it easy to mingle. The crowds are large, the lines are long, but worth it.
Pussycat Dolls
Rated "7"
Located inside the famous Caesars Palace Casino, an unusual and fun place has risen to the delight of the night time crowd.  The atmosphere is intense and the visual eye candy of the place is outstanding. 
Rated "7"
One the largest of nightclubs in any casino, this one is located inside the Palms Casino.  Weekends are out of control, the few thousand people that goes through the Palms Casinos, it is amazing.  Nice sound and light system, this multi story nightclub has a little of everything, including sky boxes you can rent.
Red Square
Rated "5"
An interesting night spot that is a restaurant and small lounge located inside the Mandalay Bay.  Do not let the size fool you, it packs a crowd on the weekends.  Great selection of vodka and it has an interesting bar top, ice.  Yes, down the center of the bar looks like an ice skating rink in miniature, quite the conversation piece.
Rated "7"
When summer arrives in Las Vegas, Rehab opens its arm and welcomes all poolside partiers.  Located in and around the Hard Rock Casino pool, this weekend party place lasts all day long.  

Rated "6"
Opened in December of 2006, The Beatles Revolution Lounge is a contemporary interpretation of the The Beatles era. Created by Cirgue du Soleil, this interesting night spot attracts all ages. 

Shadow Bar & Lounge
Rated "6"
Caesars Palace Casino may have outdone themselves with this interesting bar/lounge.  If you idea of drinking while watching near naked ladies dance behind a screen, thus calling it the shadow bar for a good reason.
Social House
Rated "6"
Another hot spot created by those creative players at Pure Management.  This Las Vegas gathering place is filled with atmosphere, quality food, good times and be sure to bring a lot of money.  
Studio 54
Rated "8"
Looking to be seen? Living on the famous/infamous history of the original New York - Studio 54, this place delivers high energy with a very unusual cross section of party goers.  No telling who you will see in the crowd, always something happening -- dance the night away.  Located inside MGM Grand Casino. Photo & additional information, click here
Rated "9"
Surrender brings the night to life at Encore Casino. The chic choice for those seeking an upscale evening, this sensual 60,000 square-foot nightclub is open to the surrounding outdoor oasis. This is not your casual clothing crowd.
Taboo Ultra Lounge
Rated "7"
Should you prefer a smaller, quaint place that has a great atmosphere, then consider this your new home.  Located inside the MGM Grand Casino, this is one of the newer trendy places to be seen.  Nice crowd, unusual mixture of locals and high end visitors.  This is not your jeans and t-shirt crowd.
Rated "8"
Tao opened in September 2005 and the crowds have not let up. This nightclub is popular with tourists and is packed almost every night. Located inside the Venetian Casino.  One of the largest nightclubs in Las Vegas, and beginning in 2007 they will also have an adjacent pool on the third floor for even more fun.
Rated "9"
Originally opened as Le Bete, this remodeled nightclub is located downstairs in the Wynn Casino.  Ultra sheek and very eye appealing, this club is a must see on your list of Las Vegas nightlife stops.  Where else except in Las Vegas can you go to a nightclub and sit outside by the 80 foot waterfall, year round? This is one of the hottest club in town, get ready to spend a long time in line.
VooDoo Lounge
Rated "6"
A great view of the city awaits you at this lounge.  Located on the top floor of the Rio Casino, the VooDoo Lounge is very popular with S. Cal. visitors.
Rated "9"
The poolside ambiance mingles with the nightclub’s decadent vibe to create an oasis at Las Vegas’ most exclusive address. XS is the gold standard in Vegas nightlife, where no extravagance is spared. Guests can sit at an indoor table or enjoy bottle service poolside in one of the outdoor cabanas. Unlike any other nightclub on the Strip, poolside lounge tables also allow for limited complimentary seating. Located in the Encore Casino.
