For a non stop party, look no further than Las Vegas. Not only does it offer beautiful weather, 24 hour gambling and sight seeing opportunities, the night life is incredible.
Whatever reason you decide to travel to Las Vegas, I’m sure you will find something that will cater for you’re needs.
Labour Day Weekend
However if you’re there to party then party you will. An ideal time to book for the nightlife would be on Americas Labour Day Weekend, this falls on the first weekend of September.
During the Labour Day Weekend in 2010, acts included: Busta Rhymes and Ray J at Haze Nightclub, which is inside Aria Hotel. Kid Kudi performed at Pure Nightclub; based in Caesars Palace, too name a few.
During the day Pool Parties were on offer, the most high profile being P Diddy at Wet Republic, which is poolside at the MGM.
A recommendation for when hitting the Las Vegas nightlife, if you are in a group, go to the nightclub of you’re choice during the day, and book queue jumping and V.I.P tables. This may seem an expensive way to approach the night out, but you will go straight into the nightclub, be seated with two bottles of alcohol of your choice (vodka, Jack Daniels, Gin etc) with a view to buy more. You will be provided with an individual bouncer who will ensure you choose who is welcome and who isn’t to join your table. You can still access the dance floor and the whole of the nightclub, returning to your table when you want.
If you’re looking for a nice hotel at a reasonable price, a popular choice is Planet Hollywood, as the hotel says “a celebrity lifestyle is yours for living”. Each room features merchandise and memorabilia from a movie, they have hi- tech televisions, with comfortable surroundings to sleep off that hangover!
Planet Hollywood also has to offer a pretty wild Pool Party, hosted by some of Las Vegas’s top DJ’s, named “The Pleasure Pool” it has too offer two separate pools, 15 cabanas, day beds and misting chairs, 2 pool bars and a café, whilst chilling by the pool all this includes Poolside Bottle Service, so you don’t even have to leave the pool.
But if you are a gambler, and enjoy a little flutter, Planet Hollywood offers non stop 24 hours of pure gambling. Whether its poker, roulette, black jack or you just want to sit down and try your luck on the slot machines. You can enjoy a drink for free, by just tipping the waitresses around the casino and they will bring you a drink of your choice. Planet Hollywood offers three daily poker tournaments; the hand “quads” pay $100 and royal flushes or straight flushes pay up to $250. The daily tournaments are a $70 buy in which start at 10am, 2pm and 7pm, or you can enjoy a cash game that which also run through out the day.
And not forgetting Planet Hollywood has the “Pleasure Pit” you get the chance to play blackjack and roulette surrounded by women in nothing but lingerie!
Las Vegas the latest and greatest clubbing holiday? The adults playground in the USA is really making a name for itself as the north American equivalent of Ibiza with the worlds leading EDM DJ’s flocking to play there.
Currently you have the world famous Tiesto having a residency at Hard Rock Hotel and the pool party Wet Republic bringing in big names such as David Guetta so is EDM taking of in a big way?
Well the popular pool party Wet Replublic seem to think so as they have signed up David Guetta to host his F*** Me Im Famous party on Sundays and during the last year they have had Laidback Luke, Deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia, Afrojack, Roger Sanchez all grace the decks.
So what has made the EDM explode in the Vegas scene? Well its less of a sudden explosion and more of it growing gradulary more popular especially with the latest rap star cross overs featuring people such as Snoop Dogg, Tinie Tempah, Flo Rida, Akon, Kelly Rowland, Fergie & Nicki Minaj. So with some of the biggest stars in the world embracing the EDM scene it makes sense that the clubs and promotors want to book these acts to play at their events.
So would you pick Las Vegas over Ibiza? Probably not, Lets face it Ibiza is the EDM capital of the world and for good reason, it has some of the best clubs in the world, a very unique set up and just a general vibe to the island that cannot be recreated anywhere else. This doesn’t mean however that Las Vegas isn’t good, its actually brilliant and if you have done the whole Ibiza thing then definitely have a look at Vegas as an alternative or just something a little bit different. Las Vegas is definitely on our must visit list, you have keep in mind that there is so much more to Las Vegas than just the club scene so it really makes for a different type of holiday to Ibiza.
