LAX is now CLOSED as of April 2017.
LAX is a nightclub where image and functionality merge in ways you might not expect. The front doors look like webs that were dipped in molten metal. Their image evokes a slight gothic inspiration, but the fact that a skinny enough person could probably slip through the spaces proves the aesthetics of LAX are more about keeping you interested than keeping you locked in. And those metal shapes continue throughout the club from railings along stairs to short fencings that keep people on the dance floor from tumbling into the table section when they break a heel — or just trip because their heels are five inches.
When you purchase a table, instead of standing in a long line of other people waiting for tables (known in the industry as a corral), you’re ushered into a lounge area complete with its own bar, DJ and available seating. The space was previously a private lounge, but seeing the opportunity to heighten the customer experience and utilize a well-placed space, LAX created a new way to accentuate the VIP persona of table service guests. Plus, once your table is ready, you’ll be lead into the club and greeted by servers waiting to take your bottle orders.
LAX is never going to be the club that Hakkasan is afraid of. But that doesn’t mean it should be overlooked. And speaking of looking, be careful if you’re a taller person. Parts of the club, especially by the main bar and the private rooms in the back, have rather low ceilings. We don’t want people to bump their noggins on anything other than a headboard.
This club may not be on your radar if you mainly know big names like Hakkasan and XS. But if you aren’t into paying Hakkasan prices or waiting in XS lines, LAX is a fine mid-scale option with a lot to offer. Their DJs bump commercial pop and remixes — when they’re not throwing back to the ’90s and early 2000s on Throwback Thursdays. And they’re even bringing in live performers to boost the thrill.
- This is definitely not considered a high end venue – but you’ll be able to get some better deals at LAX.
- Bottle prices and drink prices are both on the lower end as far as clubs in Vegas go.
