The Lowdown on Las Vegas Nightlife

The Lowdown on Las Vegas Nightlife

In the town that loves drinking, bar-hopping (choose between martini, beer, oxygen, cigar, bikini, singles, vodka bars and more), and casinos at every turn, you’ll find that Las Vegas nightlife has options for everyone. Take your pick of casino lounges, shows, restaurants, you name it and you’ll find an entertainment option of your choice. Most of the top dining options have fun-filled, party or even disco-like atmospheres as well as after-hours clubs. The Las Vegas nightlife scene wouldn’t be complete without beefy tourists and overly excited businessmen oogling cocktail waitresses and topless dancers, making for superb people watching for onlookers who choose a different type of view.

Heavily made-up divorcees lightly tap their long, painted nails while draped over bar stools in the lounge or piano bar of their choice. This is the typical (or was) picture of nightlife in Las Vegas. But the scene has changed into one of infinite possibilities, and the Strip now has a more modern, glamorous image that attracts a younger, trendier crowd of tourists who are fashion-forward and trendsetting. You’ll also find corporate executives of both sexes making eyes at each other in sleek microbreweries and edgy cigar bars. College frat boys and sorority girls along with their graduated, first-job, 20-something seniors, come to Vegas too, fists of rent-money cash in hand. The bass-thumping, flashing lights and music of the dance clubs, bars, and strip clubs have a risque feel that tourists of all ages seek out.

The club scene in Las Vegas used to be more sock-hop than hip-hop, but over the past few years, Las Vegas nightlife has taken on a new, trendier vibe that reveals that of New York and even Los Angeles. Casinos have actively been recruiting famous socialites and night-life influencers, along with flashy club promoters and international superstar DJs.

Venue-wise, the options are endless…and varied! New York-New York replicated Manhattan’s Coyote Ugly bar, where cheeky female bartenders perform sexy dance routines on bar tops. The Bellagio’s Hyde Nightclub is a popular venue as well, with its gorgeous terrace overlooking the famous fountains in front of the resort. It has 10,000 square feet of spectacular space and features sections both indoors and out.

There are also new venues at the Palms to choose from, including Scotch 80 Prime(with its rare and vintage whiskey options), Apex Social Club(with a rooftop 360-degree view of Vegas) and the newest nightlife venue on the strip just opening a few weeks ago. The Palms hotel has been going through construction and maybe the new hot spot once finished.

What will all of these entertainment options cost you? Covers and minimums vary according to the venue and if/what act is performing. Nightclub cover charge range from $40-$100 for men and most women get in free or for a much lesser charge. The strip clubs usually charge around a $20-$40 cover and sometimes have a drink minimum requirement as well, with lap dances running around $20 on average. Thankfully Nightlife Unlocked can offer a free limo pickup and reduced cover at the strip clubs.

Las Vegas nightlife starts later than most places, with 10 pm as the typical norm for starting the party. Most lounges and bars are open 24/7, and liquor laws also allow for 24/7 service, for those who crave a 4 am handle of vodka to keep the after party drinks flowing!

So for those people who still think Vegas is a touristy, family destination, take heed of the city’s catchphrase “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” The nightlife scene looks more like a group of attractive, stylish people seductively dancing together in a sleek nightclub with plans for a raging afterparty at a rooftop pool afterward. Sin is in, and it can be found all over the Las Vegas nightlife scene.

EDC Las Vegas 2018 Tips and Tricks


EDC Las Vegas 2018 Tips and Tricks  EDC Las Vegas has returned for 2018, and we have all the tips and tricks to help with the preparation. There’s less than a week left, so we wrote this guide to prepare those who are going for the first time. Our first recommendation is arriving in Las Vegas a day ahead. Coming a day ahead can help avoid having to rush and missing some of the events. They’re also events taking place during EDC weekend that can help keep you occupied arriving early to Las Vegas. We recommend checking out David Guetta at XS at Encore on May.17.2018. This will be a pool party event worth checking out. The event starts at 10:00 pm, the price for men is $60.00 while woman pay only $30.00 for the cover charge.


What to wear at EDC?

There are no restrictions other than to not wear anything that encourages hate or negativity. People are welcome to express themselves with their imagination when it comes to dressing up. Avoiding anything offensive is essential. People will be trading candy. Candy are beaded bracelets made ahead of time. It can be fun trading candies with strangers and is a great icebreaker getting to know people.


What to wear to EDC for guys and woman?

Since the event will run until 6:00 am in the morning, we recommend bringing a jacket because it can get cold. It’s forecast to reach around 66 degrees at about 6:00 am and 90 degrees during the midafternoon. We don’t recommend dressing in too many clothes during the afternoon to avoid overheating. Woman are known for wearing with little to no clothing. However, nipples must be covered up with at least tape, tape over the nipples while exposing their breast is very popular among woman at EDC.


EDC Set Times tips and tricks.

We recommend downloading the official Insomniac EDC app to keep track of set times for EDC. There is an app available for both Apple and Android smartphones These apps both have excellent feedback and are very useful because set times can be changed. The Insomniac app will help keep track of all the DJs your planning on seeing and it notifies you if there are any changes.


Additional EDC tips and tricks.

We recommend bringing snacks with you inside the event. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are the most recommended as they will keep you full. Also, make sure to stay hydrated from the heat. It was so hot last year is the reason why EDC was pushed a month earlier this year. EDC is currently sold out if you do not have a ticket we recommend only buying from an official EDC ticket exchange to avoid being scammed. Just because you buy a ticket from someone on letgo or offerup and activate it doesn’t mean the original buyer can’t cancel it. Buying from the official EDC ticket exchange will protect you from becoming a scam victim.


Lastly, bring an external charger to charge your smart. EDC is full of magic, so be sure to keep your phone charged to capture all of them!

The Best Nightclubs In Las Vegas

The Best Nightclubs in Las Vegas  “What is the best nightclub in Las Vegas?” is a question we get asked constantly. While other sites usually give some PC answer for fear of hurting feelings; Nightlife Unlocked has testicles to spare. We are more than happy to answer that question honestly. Dedicated to the unafraid, here is part one of the best nightclubs in Las Vegas and why.


Best Bottle Service in Las Vegas: Hyde Nightclub at Bellagio

Hyde Nightclub boasts the best bottle service in Las Vegas and possibly the world hands down. Rare champagne and hard to find liquor from around the world? Check. Most extravagant bottle presentations on the strip? Check. Also because it’s not a mega club, Hyde is extremely particular about who is allowed access. That means only bottle service guests and beautiful women are guaranteed entrance. Everyone else will have to find a less exclusive place to drink.


Best Nightclub for Ladies in Las Vegas: Light Nightclub at Mandalay Bay

Light is so female-friendly that half of its reservations on a nightly basis are all girl groups. Since opening, something about the place has attracted beautiful and successful women more so than even the newer clubs on the strip. Asking some of the female guests why they preferred Light nightclub, they said something about the layout. We really can’t remember as we were terribly distracted by the copious amounts of cleavage.


Best Nightclub to meet celebrities: Marquee Nightclub at Cosmopolitan

Marquee has such a strong presence across the world that every celebrity at some point swings by the Las Vegas outpost. And not only do they swing by, Marquee makes everyone pay for their bottle service. Celebrities are not exempt, that makes running into one highly likely. So keep an eye out for the weirdo in a drivers cap and beard (*cough* cough* Leo Dicaprio).


Sexiest Nightclub in Las Vegas: Drai’s Nightclub at the Cromwell

The view from Drai’s is incomparable. The music makes the booties bounce. And on a hot Vegas night, this is where the necklines are plunging and the skirts are shortest. Even the design of the club makes everyone inside its walls think and feel sexy. It’s quite a unique place in that respect and one that we highly recommend everyone experience at least once.

This is part one of an ongoing series. Is there any club that you think is the best? Leave a comment below and tell us why.
