Come earlier in the night and it'll feel more like a lounge than a club, if that's the scene you're craving. It usually gets pretty packed in front of the DJ booth, so if you're looking for some air, head to the spacious pool area behind it, which has become the real draw at Surrender anyway.
You'll want to dress to impress at this lavish after-hours club at the Wynn Resort, where you can hit the 5,000sqft dance floor for guest appearances from DJs like Diplo and Will. There's plenty of room underneath the tall palm trees there (and at the extra bar areas and gaming tables) to get as far away from the pounding music as you like and kick back with friends and cocktails.
In addition to her music career, Taylor Swift has appeared as an actress in the crime drama CSI, the ensemble comedy Valentine’s Day and the animated film The Lorax.
We've already told you 12 things you didn't know about MGM mega-club Hakkasan, but with PURE shutting down for renovations and LAVO turning into a full-time lounge, we figured it's time to tell you everything you need to know about the rest of Las Vegas's best nightclubs: check out our list for all the best places to blow your money on bottle service, foolish tips, and drinks for girls who... already let the guys at the next table buy 'em some, too. Wynn Encore What you can expect: XS is one of the most expensive nightclubs ever built: there's plenty of gold everywhere you look, a crowded dance floor, and an outdoor pool area that offers some breathing room and bottle service under the stars. Some of the top DJs in the world, including Avicii, Zedd, Skrillex, and Deadmau5 – who was brought back after his stint at Hakkasan last year that seemed to end right after it began. After dinner, you may be able to make your way into the nightclub without dealing with the long lines outside. Inspired by Cirque Du Soleil, Light offers a similarly creative and experimental take on Strip entertainment: smoke and mirrors, people hanging from ropes, and DJ sets from Skrillex are just the beginning at this laboratory of Vegas nightlife.
When to go: Light is only about a year old – and still draws long lines on the weekend. While the outdoor patio is great, the inside is a little plain by comparison. The Venetian What you can expect: Lots of different rooms playing lots of different music, plus sushi, dumplings, and other Asian eats in the restaurant downstairs. Snoop Dogg – who recently launched the Snoopadelic Cabaret; his own hip-hop version of a 1920s-style speakeasy. where locals get in for free at the popular industry night party. Although its moniker is slightly misleading (there are also locations in LA and NYC), 1 OAK offers an incomparable nightlife experience, from surprise performances by up-and-coming musical talent to celebrity appearances.
The Cosmopolitan What you can expect: Lots of space, a lot of different rooms (including a “Library” in case you want to read up on some Grisham), and an outdoor area by the pool. When to go: Marquee battles it out with XS to draw the locals on Monday nights. It will be one of the busiest spots you can find that night -- with some of the hottest girls. A better way to get in: even when you’ve got a hookup, it still takes a while to get through the door, up the escalator, and into the venue. and why you’ll see acrobats dangling from the ceiling. Check him out so you can party like it’s 2013 all over again. Unless the pool area is open, the only spot with an outdoor view is a small, thin patio next to the main dance floor. Short for “one of a kind,” nightclub 1 OAK brings a unique combination of art, fashion, and celebrity to The Mirage.
The open-air view of the famous Bellagio fountains makes up for the smaller space, and regular costume parties with themed outfits and champagne showers step up the club's game, too.
You can expect DJs ranging from Lil Jon to Brody Jenner, as well as multiple bottle-service packages. Bonus perk: You might get splashed by the fountain a little bit, which may or may not actually be a bonus. The place packs in so many VIP tables that there's hardly room for the dance floor, the bars areas, and places where you can just stand around while holding your drink up to your chest and hoping a girl starts a conversation with you. Wynn Encore What you can expect: Lots of dancing and a DJ indoors, plus tons of room to hang out outdoors by the pool. Headliners include Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, last year's hottest rapper/whatever the heck Ryan Lewis is. but not so good if you want to actually talk with the people in your group. The Aria What you can expect: A dark dance floor, go-go dancers, and acrobatic performers. Bonus perk: If you need a change of scenery, you’re an escalator ride away from a bunch of bars and restaurants. If you like world-famous DJs (Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris), eating exquisite Cantonese food, and imbibing specialty cocktails, odds are you'll love Hakkasan Las Vegas. Most of the party kids will be packing up Tao for locals night down the street. When to go: It’s a good weekend alternative to the long lines just down the hallway at Hakkasan. Some of the VIP areas have long living room couches which are comfy for watching the stage… But you’re more likely to see a bunch of guys standing around, taking up valuable real estate on the dance floor. An easier way to get from one side of the nightclub to the other without having to plow through everyone on the dance floor.
