Navigating Las Vegas nightlife can be tough, if not overwhelming. There are so many amazing things to see and do, how do you choose the hottest place? Everyone wants to see and be seen in their greatest Vegas outfits, so read on to discover some of Food Tours of America’s favorite clubs and casinos, then enjoy a night out on the town!
What’s Las Vegas without playing the slots? The slot machine floor at ARIA is one of the largest on the Las Vegas Strip! Home to almost 2,000 slot machines, the casino hosts a slot tournament several times per year. In addition, ARIA has one of the most exclusive high-limit slot rooms in all of Nevada. SPIN – the appropriately named high-limit room offers some machines that cost up to $5,000 per pull. And the payouts are just as eye-popping; upwards of $1 million! The room was designed by a New York-based architect, Peter Marino, and features an area solely for exchanging slot tickets for dollars, as well as a full-service dining area, private bathrooms, and a staff of butlers to cater to each guest’s needs. Wow!
The MGM Grand offers fun things to do for those who gamble and non-gamblers alike. The casino is well-known for its vast amount of table games and one of the most grudging slot machines in Vegas history, but if you’re looking to make memories doing something entertaining in a casino without playing the slots or table games, check out Level Up. The glorified arcade is a 21 and up bar and expansive video game mecca. In addition to beer pong, the fun zone has Pop-A-Shot, billiards, one of the largest games of Pac-Man on Earth and an original Sigma Derby – a horse race-themed slot machine that lets players bet on individual horses. Feel like a kid again!
Drai’s Beachclub Nightclub is at The Cromwell. This amazing 65,000 square foot rooftop venue features both indoor and outdoor party areas. One of the most unique traits of this club is the live musical entertainment from some of today’s top artists, such as Chris Brown, The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj and Trey Songz. The lighting and LED displays around the club are flawless. High-end bottle service packages include firework displays that shoot off the top of the venue. What a way to celebrate!
*BONUS* Still want to party and the club is closing? Don’t fret about where to go. Head down to the basement of The Cromwell to Drai’s After Hours Club. This stylish club is a hotspot of the Las Vegas action. Spinning hip-hop in one room and electronic house music in another, Drai’s After Hours stays open until 8:00 a.m., so you can quite literally party until the sun comes up. Don’t miss it!
Caesars Palace and the Hakkasan Group have truly raised the bar with one of the greatest nightclubs in Las Vegas. Omnia is an experience like none other. The first thing you will notice upon entry to the megaclub is the giant LED chandelier. It’s a sight to behold! Notice the mirrored panels and velvet curtains – which bring elegance all the way! Omnia has three different areas to party. The main room is focused on the headlining DJs (some of the top DJs in the world, I might add), is two stories high to accommodate the masses, and where you will find the chandelier to end all chandeliers. The second room is dubbed the “Heart of Omnia” which has a darker ambiance, with LED lights illuminating almost all the walls. Omnia also offers an escape to an outdoor patio area, with a fantastic view of Las Vegas Blvd. Like extra attention? A drumline performs bottle service presentations throughout the night. Order away!
