The brainchild of London’s Hakkasan restaurant’s parent company, Hakkasan Group, Hakkasan Nightclub is just one of the Group’s Las Vegas nightclubs Hakkasan is a sort of mega-club, filling multiple floors of the MGM Grand with a restaurant as its base, then a private restaurant, then Ling Ling (the nightclub level), followed by the “main room and pavilion” (which serves as either an adjunct to the nightclub or as a host for private events).
Situated above the other four floors is, of course, a mezzanine where you can drink and carouse while watching the dancers below. Chances are, if you wander about the floors enough, you will find your perfect nightclub experience. If not, well, at least you’ll be able to describe “Chinoiserie” décor to your provincial friends.
Hakkasan is open from 10pm until 4am Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and they strongly recommend that — if you want to avoid long lines — you arrive prior to 10pm. General admission is in the $30-$50 range, but of course, higher prices can be expected for special events. You can check out the entertainment as well as the amenities offered on each floor of Hakkasan by checking out their website.
Another offering from the Hakkasan Group, JEWEL at the Aria offers rap artists like Tyga along with top DJs like Dylan Ragland.

Marquee is about 60,000 square feet of dancing entertainment brought to you by the same people who brought TAO to the Venetian have designed a club that attracts big-name DJs and performers like, well, like a world-class nightclub.
The club has huge windows through which you can see the lights of Las Vegas (worth the cover charge all by itself). Marquee is actually split into three areas: the main dance club, a mixed-format room called the Boom Box, and a VIP area they call The Library. Marquee regularly features house music from one of their resident DJs (Chuckie, R3hab, and Mustard among them).
Incidentally, during the day, Marquee moves poolside and becomes a dayclub with its own set of DJs who play music so good you’ll forget you’re getting one heck of a sunburn.

TAO is a nightclub like Disneyland is an amusement park. Technically correct in both cases, but Tao is also an Asian bistro and a pool party in addition to its duties as a nightclub.
The bistro at TAO features everything from sushi and dim sum to entrees like “honey-glazed salmon with lotus root, green beans and baby sweet peppers.” Baby Sweet Peppers — great DJ name! I call dibs.
It’s quite likely TAO fields the largest team of DJs in all of Vegas. Popular names there include Chuckie, Crespo, DJ Five, DJ Ruckus, Eric DLux, Mustard, and Vice.

VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub & Lounge
Located directly above the VooDoo Steakhouse at Rio VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub gives you the opportunity to sneer down at the tiny little ants 51 stories below as they scurry about their humdrum lives while you sip champagne or some more exotic drink served up by the nightclub’s “flair” bartenders — who just happen to be quite entertaining in their own right.

To note regular appearances from performers such as Kygo, Major Lazer, and Steve Angello is to merely touch on the depth and breadth of the XS musical line-up, which might also explain why XS is the Las Vegas dancing mecca.
Points to note when you visit these nightclubs
- You might find yourself waiting for days to get into some of these nightclubs.
- Admission prices are generally in the $20 to $30 range, but different clubs charge different prices for different events. Also Men will pay higher admission prices than women will.
- Dress codes are also important at the city’s best nightclubs, but in most cases, they aren’t particularly demanding. Nice jeans or slacks for men (and a collared shirt) seems to be the basic requirement. Hats are usually discouraged. Naturally, women are permitted a little more latitude, but a nice dress with heels will almost certainly pass inspection. No flip-flops, though. For either sex.
- Also prohibited across the board are large bags, backpacks, or parcels.
- It is a very good idea to check the nightclub’s website for days and hours of operation. Some nightclubs are only open three days a week; others are open four days and most of the time, those are not consecutive days.
- Many of the performers and DJs appear regularly at several of the nightclubs (particularly if the nightclubs are owned by a single parent company.
