Las Vegas Nightlife


There's a reason they say 'what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas' and the nightlife and entertainment may well be that reason. With bars, clubs, strip clubs, casinos and world-class international shows running for years at a time, it's little wonder that Las Vegas has earned itself a reputation, albeit not always favourable, as one of the world's party capitals.

The world-famous Strip is bland and dingy-looking during the day, but the minute the sun sets this desert oasis springs to life with neon illuminating just about every inch of this infamous city. The real problem when heading out for a night on The Strip is choosing where to begin.

The current trend regarding shows is towards headline comedy or music acts and large-scale Broadway productions all of which can be seen at the main hotels throughout town. World-famous magicians like David Copperfield and Criss Angel, singers like Celine Dion, Bette Midler and Cher, and renowned acts like the Cirque du Soleil and Blue Man Group all call Las Vegas home.

Hotels in Las Vegas with great entertainment include the Bellagio, the Venetian, Caesar's Palace, Mandalay Bay, Treasure Island and the MGM Grand. Las Vegas casinos are also the best place to go for nightclubs and bars, with famous clubs like Pure (Caesar's Palace), Tao (The Venetian), Lavo (the Palazzo), and Wet Republic (MGM Grand) throwing celebrity-hosted parties nearly every weekend.
