Where’s the Party?

Simply knowing all of the Las Vegas hotspots isn’t enough in this town. After all, when sending somebody out for a night out you have to send them to the right place at the right time. And while every joint seems to be jumping on the weekends, during the week the party scene is more highly focused on certain locations.

That means you need the inside scoop on where the action is during the week. While there are plenty of people looking for an escape on weekend nights, the volume might not be the same as Thursday through Saturday evenings. This has led certain nightclubs and lounges to claim a specific night of the week as the place to be. Dubbed “industry nights” because they are geared to casino staff with the night off, stepping inside the right club on the right night is the equivalent to visiting the joint on a raucous Saturday night. 

On Mondays Tabu Ultra Lounge at the MGM Grand features Rok Box, Vegas’ original rock and mash-up party. For a larger nightclub experience, Jet at Mirage is the place to be. On Tuesday, it’s all about PURE Nightclub. This giant club features four rooms, each with its own distinct soundtrack. Additionally, there are rooftop top cabanas and an outside bar overlooking the Las Vegas Strip.

Wednesdays, the action is all at the Luxor. Resident DJ Vice creates the mood at the LAX Nightclub at this mega club. For a more laid back experience, Noir Bar is the place to be. Hidden below LAX, this secret club is not widely advertised, and reservations are a must. It’s got a speakeasy vibe, specializes in handcrafted cocktails and will give your clients the feeling that they are a big time “player” in Sin City.  It’s also the perfect after-party hot spot since it’s open until 6 am.

And on Sunday, suggest they check out Body English at the Hard Rock Hotel.

By having the inside scoop on where the real parties are, you’ll be the real expert next time you’re suggesting a night out on The Strip.
