Loud music, dazzling neon and overflowing booze are the essence of any nightclub. But have you ever thought what kind of music you would like to dance with when you are in Las Vegas? Here is a brief guide to the top nightclubs and their usual playlist. Choose yours and go wild.
The music they play: Big names like Major Lazer, Diplo and Skrillex perform here along with electronic dance music.
Why you should be there: Weekly Sunday NightSwim during the summers and an all-season indulgent ambiance are the chief attractions. The crowded dance floor swaying with loud EDM will take you to a trance-like state. Prefer just a bit more breathing room? Step by the pool outside and chill out.
The music they play: Though it’s a comparatively new joint, Jewel has names like Zedd, Drake, Steve Aoki and The Chainsmokers performing on stage apart from playing lots of EDM and pop.
Why you should be there: A trendy and modern interior studded with LED lights creates a charged-up atmosphere. Five distinct VIP rooms are also there with different themes overlooking the pulsating dance floor.
The music they play: They specialize in electronic music with big shots like Steve Aoki and Tiësto performing regularly. Open-format DJs are held every night in the Ling Ling Club, while the other part, the Ling Ling Lounge, prefers to play the ‘90s and hip-hop.
Why you should be there: No matter which mood you are in, Hakkasan will perfectly match it up. The main room is loud and spacious, while the smaller Ling Ling Club has a comparatively calmer ambiance. On the other hand, if you wish to avoid the dance floor and just enjoy your drink, choose the Ling Ling Lounge.
The music they play: If you are here, chances are you dropped in for some wild night outs. And to set in the mood they play mainly EDM and the top 40 chartbusters. However, if luck permits, you can also come across some celebrity guests performing on special evenings.
Why you should be there: The circular dance floor adds an amazing fun quotient as you tap your feet to some groovy number. The poolside that stays open even during winter months, thanks to the temporary circular dome built on top, is another attraction where you can stretch out.
