If you want to dance the night away, pull out your dancin' shoes and head out to one of the many Las Vegas nightclubs with its ensemble of world-renown DJs.
Most Las Vegas clubs charge a cover, which can range from $10 - $30 weeknights and up to $100 on the weekend. Be prepared to pay! On another hand, there are a few Night spots and Lounges with no cover charge.
Note: Minimum age to get into these nightclubs and lounges is 21. No exceptions. If you are under 21 years, bouncers at almost any club in the city will take your fake ID and laugh at you.
Here is a list of what we consider the hottest spots to enjoy Las Vegas nightlife.
