Vegas' Swanky Nightclubs and Lounges

April 16, 2007 By: Glenn Haussman Travel Agent

The nightlife in Sin City is second-to-none

Partying until the sun comes up is matter of course in Las Vegas. But to create those indelible memories—where your client's wants mesh with the "What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas" mantra—it's paramount to match the right venue with the right attitude. While some are looking to sip martinis in a slick and sexy lounge, others might desire to take it up a notch and explore the club scene.  The main room at PURE Nightclub in Ceasars Palace, Las Vegas

Fortunately it's Vegas, baby, and there's something for
everyone. The one thing Las Vegas mega-clubs and lounges all seem to have in
common are long, long lines with well coiffed young people clamoring for a
golden ticket to get inside. Big tip: Instead of wasting what could literally
be hours waiting on line watching the real high rollers go by, offers exclusive
front-of-the-line access to more than a dozen of the top clubs on and off the
Strip. You can also secure special VIP packages there that include group
admissions, as well as tables with bottle service.'s Nightclub section offers full details on each
club, including atmosphere, hours of operation, entertainment schedules and
more. Make reservations online or by calling 866-80-SHOWS.

The Mega-Club Scene

Things have changed radically on the club scene during the
last few years with the emergence of exclusive (read, expensive) tables. And in
Vegas, having a great table at a popular club can be well worth the seemingly
steep price. Here guests pay $400-$500 for a table or booth that can seat about
six to eight people. They'll get a bottle of their favorite spirits and a
variety of mixers. But most importantly, it's prime real estate they'll have
all night. Table service also means no waiting at the bar to get another round,
and for men it creates the mystique of being a player. Men also love that, as
the night grows long, more women are apt to stop by to chat and relax at their
spacious table.

Moon at the Palms Casino Resort

At Wynn Las Vegas, Tryst is an amazing
12,000-square-foot venue blending indoor and outdoor spaces to create one of
the most original club concepts yet. Upon arrival, guests immediately see the
dance floor, which is backed by direct views of a 90-foot waterfall. A private
lagoon adds to the mood and provides a nice space to take a break from the
action. Reserve a table outside for clients looking to seamlessly mix outdoor
conversation with the hard pumping sounds of the DJ when inside. Signature
drinks include the Forbidden Kiss, which features Grey Goose La Vanilla Vodka
with a touch of Crème De Cocoa, and the Love Triangle, Johnny Love Pineapple
with Tangerine Vodka and pineapple juice. It's open Thursday through Saturday
from 10 p.m to 4 a.m. Table reservations are highly recommended; ask for Jesse
Waits (702-770-3375) if you're working with a VIP.

At Caesars, PURE Nightclub is the only place to be in
Vegas on Tuesday nights. Featuring a rooftop lounge hovering just over the Las
Vegas Strip, PURE is actually three different experiences in one. A gigantic
36,000 square feet, its three venues all have a distinct personality. A
pulsating dance floor, smooth and silky bar area and the outside Terrace all
have separate DJs and sound systems further enhancing the varied vibes. If you
book a table here, it even comes with private security to enhance the
experience, as they'll keep unwanted hangers-on away. They have a team of experienced
VIP hosts. Call 702-731-PURE for more information.

Patio of Moon, minus its retractable roof

Just off the Strip is the Palms Casino Resort. Here there
are two mega-clubs, each with its own unique flavor. At Rain Las Vegas,
abundant special effects reign on the dance floor, including an intelligent
lighting system, fog, haze and three-foot fireballs. A computer-programmed
river of water surrounds the bamboo dance floor and features dancing jets and
fountains. The club also has a mezzanine/VIP level accessed by a private
elevator, which has personal balconies overlooking the nightclub below. Rain Las Vegas is open Thursday
from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. and Friday-Saturday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

In the recently added Fantasy Tower
at the Palms is Moon, a nightclub in the sky with a retractable roof
that opens to reveal the stars. Upon entering Moon, guests immediately notice
they have arrived at a dramatic, surreal environment. The floor is covered with
glass tiles in a variety of shapes and sizes that reflect a dizzying array of
light. Videos are projected on a curtain of glass beads, and the club has floor-to-ceiling
windows for great views of the entire Strip.

The Ultra-Lounge Scene

For those not looking to battle throngs of partygoers on the
dance floor, there are many great martini lounges. The music is usually turned
down a notch, making conversation possible, and there's no need to spend
hundreds to get a table.

Based on the Beatles era, the newest lounge located at the
Mirage is a psychedelic mind trip created by Cirque Du Soleil. The Beatles
features an LSD-inspired ceiling featuring 30,000
diachronic crystals designed to reflect light and represent the song "Lucy
in the Sky with Diamonds." VIP tables feature interactive tabletops where
guests can create artwork and then project it onto a diamond shaped column in
the center of the lounge. This is the only place in the world with these
$150,000 tables. "Yellow Submarine"-inspired portholes line one wall,
while the music focuses on the Beatles early in the evening and switches to
more contemporary beats later on. Make reservations at 702-692-8383.

On the south side of the Strip, Mandalay Bay
has the highly atmospheric rumjungle. At night, this restaurant becomes
an ultra-lounge featuring a sizzling hot firewall that transforms into a
soothing wall of water. Call 702-632-7408 for reservations and more

At the Venetian, V Bar is another top-rated
martini bar-lounge worth visiting. V Bar is an upscale quiet hideaway featuring
leather chaise lounges, understated lighting, a very relaxed tone and a huge
selection of martinis. Late at night, DJs ramp up the energy with old school
hip-hop and R&B, which plays until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Created
by the founders of New York's
famed Lotus, this is one swanky hotspot worth checking out. V Bar opens nightly
at 5 p.m. Call 702-414-3200 for more information.
