When the harsh desert sun goes down, Las Vegas comes to life – an overwhelming spectacle of neon excess and glittering lights. While Las Vegas is primarily known for gambling, don’t waste too much time (and money) playing blackjack as there’s some world-class clubbing fun to be had.
Pure at Caesars Palace is where you’re likely to rub shoulders with Paris Hilton and other celebrity-wannabe types. Lavishly designed with three different rooms, each offering a different atmosphere and style of music, Pure is a place to show off and “be seen”. You can reserve a luxurious velvet couch in the Red Room, rent enclosed Cabanas or take in the views on The Terrace. Make sure you’re dressed to impress as a dress code is strictly enforced.
VooDoo is one of the hippest clubs in town, situated on the 51st floor of the Rio All-Suite Hotel Casino. You take a glass elevator to enter and the two-story venue features views to die for. The bartenders’ tricks and go-go dancers will distract you from the view, as will the hip, hot patrons – a mix of locals and tourists. It’s a great bar but the dance beats take over later in the evening when the patio turns into a throbbing dancefloor, and furniture turns into podiums.
Another place to get high is Ghostbar on the 55th floor of the Palms Casino. Its name comes from a ghost-shaped lighted panel that changes colors as it illuminates the ceiling over the bar. If you want something really scary though, step onto the glass floor that gives you the feeling that you’re walking on air hundreds of meters above the ground. Floor to ceiling glass windows give club-goers a 180 degree view.
Located slightly off the main Vegas Strip, Rain at the Palms Casino Resort is a huge space invariably filled with young, hip and high-energy clubbers. This is an all-party, all-the-time nightclub. Dancing water fountains surround the dance floor and fireballs shoot from the center of the ceiling lighting rig. You’ll probably be too busy partying to look at yet another spectacular Vegas view.
