1. Kaos Nightclub at the Palms (Hip Hop / EDM depending on DJ/Artist)

Kaos is the latest and greatest nightclub to open in Las Vegas. This 29,000 square foot nightclub features an opulent theme merged with state-of-the-art technology to create a dynamic, luxurious and production-rich environment. The choreography and circulation leading guests to the theater-like club drew inspiration from a modern playhouse, with art and architecture working hand-in-hand to create a surreal, ever-evolving experience. Kaos won’t always be hip hop – it depends entirely on the artist / DJ. On many nights they feature top tier EDM DJs. However, on some nights you’ll find world class Hip Hop talent performing, including Cardi B, G-Eazy, Travis Scott, J Balvin, and more. See who’s playing at Kaos and get on the guestlist here.

2. Omnia Nightclub at Caesar’s Palace (EDM)

Following it’s much anticipated grand opening March 2015, Omnia Las Vegas has quickly become the hottest club on the strip. Located in the space previously occupied by Pure Nightclub in Caesars, Omnia LV features a star studded EDM DJ line up that includes Afrojack, Armin Van Buuren, Calvin Harris, Nicky Romero, Martin Garrix, Chuckie, Krewella, Nervo, and Oliver Heldens. The Omnia aura begins upon entering the lavish space. A colossal lighting system, which looms over the expansive dance floor, sends cascading light throughout the main club. Guests under the four-story roof will be showered with beams of changing colored lights revealing layers of architectural wonders. 

The main club boasts a dramatic 65-foot-tall ceiling dome that encompasses a 22,000-pound kinetic chandelier. The grandiose centerpiece of the main club consists of eight concentric rings featuring production elements including theatrical lighting effects, video projections and light-emitting diodes (LED) choreographed to evolve throughout the night.

If you’re into hip hop music, Heart of Omnia is a separate area within Omnia that features a hip hop DJ. There’s also a rooftop terrace upstairs that has it’s own DJ, typically playing more chill music. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to hear the main DJ unless you’re in the main room. Of course, main room table prices don’t come cheap. Can’t put a price on fun.

EBC at Night features three fully stocked bars, VIP booths along the dance floor, cabanas and daybeds near the pool, and stripper poles for gorgeous go-go dancers. When you’re ready to take the party outside, EBC at Night has you covered too.

EBC at Night’s resident DJs include RL Grime, A Trak, Dillon Francis, Yellow Claw, Flosstradamus, Diplo, and DJ Snake. Depending on the DJ and the night, the music may skew more hip hop / dubstep / trap / dirty EDM. Make sure to do your research on the DJ spinning that night!

9. On the Record at the MGM (Open Format)

An ode to all things music takes over On The Record, the new nightclub at the Park MGM.

Los Angeles twins Jonnie and Mark Houston created this new nightlife experience that features a music store entrance, karaoke rooms, a speakeasy, a patio with a double-decker bus for the deejays, guest bartenders, and a dance floor.

The experience, unlike any other nightclub in the city, sits across from the Park Theater with a record store entrance that spans two floors.

Club-goers then head to a speakeasy door that leads to an 11,000-square-foot space outfitted with speakers, TV screens, and cassette tapes from yesteryear. Visitors can try out one of the three karaoke rooms, step out on the patio with that double-decker bus, or head to the main room with a deejay booth fashioned from a Rolls-Royce.

Then there’s a living room space with a fireplace, and the vinyl parlor, where guest bartenders sling specialty drinks.

10. 1 OAK LV at The Mirage (Hip Hop / Top 40)

Major Lazer also played several gigs here. With over 16,000 square-feet of space, this club can fit up to 1600 people.

Within its 16,000-square-feet are two separate rooms which each contain their own full-service bar and DJ booth. Since opening its doors on New Year’s Eve with a star-studded celebration hosted by the incomparable Fergie and featuring a now famous 3-hour DJ set by YEEZYWORLDPEACE, better known to most as Kanye West, 1 OAK has been leading the party for nightclubs in Las Vegas.

Bonus – Drai’s After Hours at The Cromwell (2 rooms – 1 Hip Hop, 1 EDM)

So, the DJ is starting to wind down at the club you’re at but you’ve still got a solid six or seven hours of party left in you. It’s the timeless dilemma many of us have encountered at some point or another.

What to do, what to do… Head to Drai’s After Hours in The Cromwell. Look for the gold elevator marked with the curvaceous body of a woman in ruby red dress. The club is located underground where it originally opened in the Barbary Coast. Plain and simple, if you’re looking for after-hours fun on the Strip, this is the place to be. Cashing in on everything saucy about after-hours, Drai’s digs deep to give you a club experience like no other. Drai’s pioneered the “after-hours” late-night concept in 1997, providing an intimate and exclusive spot where the party continued til sunrise.

Drai’s features two separate rooms – one playing hip hop and one playing electronic music. Be forewarned – on occasion when it gets really busy you may have to pay an extra cover charge to get into the hip hop room. But you can’t put a price on fun!

Drais Beachclub Dubai To Become Nightclub

2018 has been a pretty major year for Drai’s Dubai, the Las Vegas pool party club that debuted back in February at the Soho Garden complex in Meydan.

Fans of its Hot Mess ladies’ day may end up looking for a new daytime pool party to head to, because Drai’s Dubai has confirmed it will no longer operate as a daytime pool club.

As of this weekend, the club will be completely transformed into a nightlife destination, with the team behind it telling Time Out Dubai that it is being redesigned to better suit the market. This may also be a result of Soho Beach’s increased operation every week – including a brand-new Friday brunch every week, which is basically a four-hour pool party.

As of this Friday, Drai’s will become a fully-fledged nightclub, run by the same team and production crew behind WHITE Dubai.

So what does that mean?

Well, there’s a huge renovation currently going on in Meydan, and that means that the pool is going, so farewell to getting your toes wet during a party. Whether the pool will be gone by this weekend remains to be seen, given the scale of the renovation.

Secondly, we’ve been told that the beach beds, cabanas et al are all getting the heave-ho – the levelling is changing and it’ll be unrecognizable to the Drai’s you know today. The restructure will also make way for clearer views of Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai at night – perfect.

Given the production is now being run by the crew at neighboring WHITE Dubai, we’re excited to see the huge new light show, stage, graphics and more that are on their way in.

This weekend will see US rapper Big Sean in town for a headline performance, with the club opening at 10pm through until 4am. That will be the case every Friday through until the end of 2018, and the team behind Drai’s will be looking at which days of the week the club will be open come 2019 – at this stage it looks likely that Tuesday nights will be added to that list (giving more mid-week clubbing options in the area).

For now, there’s a ladies’ night on Friday, with an open bar until 1am, and free entry for all.

But, fear not, the huge light-up DRAI’S sign out the front will still be there, so you can get that Instagram moment out front on arrival.

Migos Announces Drai’s Las Vegas Residency

Las Vegas has been making noise in the music world in recent years thanks to an update of its entertainment model. The Strip’s resident headliners have gotten younger and more relevant, with several different pop artists proving you don’t have to be a legacy act to fill a big theater throughout the year. Gwen Stefani just debuted at Zappos Theater, and Lady Gaga will do the same at Park Theater in December.

But there’s a different type of headliner that’s being overlooked—chart-topping artists who typically don’t get categorized with their fellow Strip stars. They’re selling out a smaller but still big entertainment venue, and they’re as musically relevant as the others—quite cutting-edge, in fact. These are the residents at Drai’s Nightclub and no, they’re not DJs. They’re the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B, and they’re performing full concerts on a weekly basis.

At the moment, there’s no name bigger than Migos. Even among Drai’s stellar resident roster of rappers (Big Sean, Future, G-Eazy, Rae Sremmurd, T.I., Wiz Khalifa and newest additions Pusha T and Meek Mill), the ubiquitous Georgia trio of Offset, Takeoff and Quavo stands out. Migos didn’t just take over hip-hop with viral single “Bad and Boujee” in late 2016. As Pitchfork put it, Migos “infiltrated the mainstream without going pop; instead, pop had gone Migos.” The group reached a new level of cultural saturation in May, when Donald Glover, Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd portrayed them in a riotous Saturday Night Live sketch called “Friendos.” If you missed it, hit YouTube immediately.

In the past week alone, Migos won the Best Group Award (and performed current hit singles “Stir Fry” and “Walk It Talk It”) at the BET Awards and snagged the Vanguard Award at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Awards gala. Sprawling January album Culture II—its 24 tracks clock in around 105 minutes—has been hailed as an experimental evolution of the Migos sound, and if that isn’t enough output for you, there’s also a constant stream of guest appearances. Two of the year’s most epic hip-hop tracks contain direct Migos contributions and even more influence: Glover’s “This Is America” (as Childish Gambino) and “Apesh*t,” the lead single from Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s surprise album, Everything Is Love.

Next month, Migos will kick off a combo tour with Drake that promises to be one of the hottest music events in the country throughout the summer and fall, even though it’s a more expensive ticket ($189 vs. $178) than the Beyoncé-Jay On the Run II tour, according to a recently released TickPick list.

That demand makes Migos’ shows at Drai’s an even more significant experience. After all, isn’t the current Vegas headliner model based on the opportunity to see favorite artists who can sell out arena-sized facilities in a more intimate and exclusive environment?

Which dates are Migos performing at Drai’s Las Vegas and Drai’s Beach Club?

Meek Mill Announces Residency at Drai’s Nightclub

Following a brief prison stint, Meek Mill is back at the top of his game, having already performed at Rolling Loud in May and Hot 97’s Summer Jam earlier this month, after his release from prison in April. Now, Meek is extending his itinerary a bit further as he’s set to make his return to Las Vegas to kick off his Drai’s Nightclub residency next month.

On July 7, Meek Mill will touch down at the Drai’s Nightclub’s rooftop stage at The Cromwell to kick off his first show during Summer League and will return for a few shows throughout the two-year residency, including a performance on July 21. More dates will be announced in the future.

“The energy at Drai’s Nightclub has always been amazing and I’ve had some special moments there over the years,” Meek says in a statement. “That’s why I’m excited to make some more new memories there with my residency and I can’t wait to give my fans an unforgettable experience.”

Konstantine Deslis, entertainment director at Drai’s Las Vegas, adds: “Meek Mill is one of the most important artists in hip-hop music today, with music and a live show that is like nothing you will ever see. As long-time partners, we’re proud to welcome Meek Mill back to the Drai’s LIVE Stage as he delivers a residency performance that can only be found in Las Vegas at Drai’s Nightclub. Meek Mill has elevated himself as a hip-hop Icon, and representative of the Culture that adds to the Drai’s Live Roster in a big way.”

Ahead of his return to the Drai’s Nightclub stage, Meek will hit the stage at the 2018 BET Awards, which will be hosted by Jamie Foxx, along with fellow performers Nicki Minaj, Janelle Monae, Migos, Ella Mai and H.E.R.

Best Las Vegas Clubs on Thursdays

What are the best parties in Las Vegas on Thursdays?

As the weekend draws closer, more and more venues will open their doors to the public. Shows are plenty during Thursday nights but still not quite like the weekend yet. Well, don’t take my word for it, but you probably don’t want to go too crazy just yet.

Hakkasan

The undisputed number one on this list, Hakkasan is easily one of the best clubs on the Strip, or even the world. Hakkasan is a 80,000 square feet, five story mega nightclub with lounges, restaurants all within the premises. While the main room primarily plays EDM, the Ling Ling Lounge and Ling Ling Room on the third floor has someone spin Hip Hop on most nights. The DJs that grace the stage of the main room are always the biggest names around like Calvin Harris and Tiesto. We have a guestlist with Hakkasan on most nights so make sure you check out our app or web app.

Drais Nightclub

Drai’s is the crown jewel and prized brainchild of nightlife guru Victor Drai. In one of his interviews, Drai famously said that he designed this place inch by inch. Every section of the club is exceptionally well thought out and the state-of-art sound systems along with probably the best visual effects on the strip gives Drai’s a pretty respected place in the Las Vegas nightlife scene. Note that we do have a guestlist at Drai’s on most nights so make sure you sign up to save a few bucks.

Encore Beach Club at Night

The late night counterpart of the best day party in Las Vegas, EBC at night does not disappoint at all. Performing talent is not as great as Encore Beach Club during the day offers but do expect lineups to be pretty solid still. A climate controlled dome also makes sure that parties goes on all year long. If you want to save up your nightclub energy for the upcoming weekend. Taking a dip at the pools in EBC at night might just be the perfect choice for you.

Tao

Tao, one of the everlasting mega clubs on the strip, offers a full Vegas experience with 60,000 square feet of pure entertainment including a nightclub, beach club, lounge, restaurant and banquet hall. If you had dinner at its restaurant, you can go straight into the club afterwards without having to lineup or pay a cover (this might not be applicable to holiday weekends and busy weeks). We have a guestlist here which you can sign up with the link below.

Liquid

Located at the excellent Aria Hotel, Liquid is a comparatively smaller pool party venue compared to the average Vegas day club. However, it does have lower minimums and ticket prices which mean you can save a few bucks for the expensive ones later on. Regardless, if you are looking for a more relaxed place to spend you morning afternoon in a pool but still with music, Liquid is the place to go.

Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 Party Guide

The annual International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) – with over 180,000 registered participants – descends upon Sin City this coming week.  If you’re joining us from out of town and are attending the conference, then you are in store for hellacious crowds, physically demanding marathon race-walks, and long days stacked back-to-back with vendor/partner meetings, sales pitches, and product demos.  But hey, don’t let this Vegas trip on the company dime go to waste.  You know what they say:  Work Hard, Play Harder.  And you can always catch up on sleep on the long plane ride home… or when you’re dead.

 

Here’s a recap of the best parties around town after the sun goes down during CES 2018 Week:

Monday, January 8th, 2018

French Montana @ Marquee Nightclub

French is ready to go “All The Way Up” for CES – are you?

CES doesn’t officially kick off until Tuesday morning, but the majority of convention attendees will fly into town on Monday morning, set up their booths at the Las Vegas Convention Center all afternoon, and be chomping at the bit to get the party started in Sin City as the sun goes down.  There are a few Monday night events and mixers around town, including the free Startup Night Downtown Vegas, where visitors can get a sneak peek at 15 of the hottest local startups from nearby Eureka Park. NASA, Lighter Capital, Scout Ventures, and other industry leaders will help select two winners who will go on to compete in the 2018 Startup of the Year competition.  Welcome mixers end around 9pm, and the hottest afterparty will be at Marquee Industry Mondays, where Grammy-nominated Moroccan-American hip-hop star French Montana will take CES revelers “All The Way Up” into the wee hours of the morning.  Pro tip 1: Sign up for the *FREE guest list* using the Discotech app.  Pro tip 2:  MAKE SURE YOU WAKE UP.  Set your hotel room alarm clock BEFORE you head out onto the Strip… or tell a co-worker to send you a wakeup call so you can get to the Convention Center or where you need to be on time.  Or else your employability will be going all the way down.

Time: 10:00 PM – 5:00 AM

Venue: Marquee @ Cosmopolitan (3708 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

Marshmello @ Intrigue

That one time you took off the VR headset and the person in front of you STILL looked like THIS.

Midway through CES week, your brain will probably be fried by all the relentless techie small talk, Virtual Reality headsets, driverless car rides, and awkward social interactions with the hordes of nerds and hipsters.   Wouldn’t it be fund to recharge by spending part of your CES rollicking and laughing the night away with one of EDM’s most talented artists and one of its funniest, quirkiest personalities?  After your CES company dinner, leave the graybeards of upper management at the slot machines, because this show will be for the twentysomething kids (and Janice in Accounting, because she’s cool AF).  A picture is worth a thousand words, and a Youtube clip is worth a million.   Enough said.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Intrigue @ The Wynn (3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV  89109)

Rick Ross @ Light

The boss that you wish you had at work.

Not only is CES one of the most exciting weeks for technology, it’s also an exciting week for music, as prime music artists flock to Vegas to entertain the masses that the convention brings in to town.  Mandalay Bay at the far south end of The Strip – one of the furthest hotels away from the Las Vegas Convention Center – is getting in on the action too.  But after a long couple of days covering over 1,900 square feet of exhibitions, you’ll definitely need to unwind and may not be up for the hike (or monorail ride).  The choice is yours: you can head back to your room, crawl into bed, put on the noise-canceling headphones, and lose yourself in some gangster rap… or you can dump all your pamphlets, shower up, get suited and booted, and find your second wind with Grammy-winning rapper Rick Ross and the gorgeous crowd he always draws.  We strongly suggest Option #2 – because nothing gets your mind off your mean boss like your dream boss AKA “The Boss” AKA Ricky Rozay.

Time: 10:30 PM – 5:00AM

Venue: Light @ Mandalay Bay (3950 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119)

Tiesto @ Hakkasan

New Year’s resolution for this guy: More Vegas.

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. It looks like globe-trotting DJ and producer Tiësto will be staying as well, with the extension of his multi-year residency, which will go through 2020. The news was revealed last month in a press statement made by Hakkasan Group, which operates Hakkasan Nightclub, Wet Republic and several other clubs for both day and nightlife.  “It is an honor to return to Hakkasan Group and to continue my residencies at Hakkasan Nightclub and Wet Republic,” says Tiësto. “Vegas has come to feel like home, and through my residency with Hakkasan Group, I feel proud of the space we’ve created here for dance music. I look forward to many more opportunities to be inspired by this incredible city in venues that are consistently full of energy.”  Tiësto’s first performance of 2018 comes during CES; the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino will also be converting its main lobby to host meet-and-greets and more. Tickets to both events can be purchased here.

Time: 10:30 PM – 5:00 AM

Venue: Hakkasan @ MGM Grand (3799 S Las Vegas Blvd S ,Las Vegas, NV 89109)

DJ Mustard @ Tao

One beat please. Bacon-wrapped, hold the ketchup, hold the relish.

We assume most of you – yes, even you CES nerds – are at least peripherally familiar with DJ Mustard at this point.  Even if you aren’t, you’ve definitely heard a beat he’s created on your local radio station within the past five years, and you couldn’t get away from DJ Mustard in 2017: he burned up the airwaves month after month collaborating with some of hip-hop’s biggest names.  The Pushaz Ink affiliate has pioneered what he describes as “ratchet music”, and is a close friend of fellow California artist YG, also serving as his official tour DJ. Throughout his young career, the L.A. native has already collaborated with the likes of Young Jeezy, Tyga, 2 Chainz, TeeFlii, Nipsey Hussle, Ty Dolla $ign and many more.   Let’s face it: YG’s “My N*gga”, 2 Chainz’ “I’m Different” and Tyga’s “Rack City” are all DJ Mustard tracks that you – and every techie in your IT department and coding development team – had in your Spotify playlist and secretly know all the words to.  Now is your chance to sing along in person with zero shame and zero f*cks given, as Mustard returns to the site of his 2017 Vegas residency for a special CES performance featuring surprise guests and all his hits.  Main room tables start at $1,000 minimum spend; if you have control of the company AMEX card, those dance floor tables go for $4,000 and can be expensed to “team-building exercises” that are way more fun than trapezes or yoga retreats.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Tao @ The Venetian (3355 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

DJ Esco @ Drai’s Nightclub

If you made it this far into CES week… then you’re from here.

Electronic dance music reigned supreme in Vegas throughout 2017, consistently commanding the highest-price tickets and tables in nightclubs around town.  That being said, there’s no doubt that hip-hop is enjoying a resurgence at the moment, and Drai’s Las Vegas has been a big reason behind that comeback.  This past year saw Drai’s surge to the top of the Vegas hip-hop nightlife ecosystem by committing to booking top-tier talent – Future, Migos, G-Eazy, Lil’ Wayne, to name a few – which in turn made Drai’s a coveted brand and destination not only for hip-hop royalty but for professional athletes and all of black Hollywood.  Yeah, yeah, yeah – we know that the Official CES Closing Party is just down the road at the Venetian.  But half of your compadres will already have skipped town, and the eggheads who worked too hard all convention week will be trying too hard to have fun there.  So trust us when we say the better party atmosphere will be elsewhere on the strip.  The coolest Vegas stories come from partying with the cool kids AKA us Vegas locals, and there will be plenty of them at the legendary Drai’s on Friday night bumping to DJ Esco and taking their city back from the hordes of CES tourists, prior to ending the night / starting the morning next door at the infamous Drai’s After Hours.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00AM (Drai’s After Hours goes from 2:00am to noon)

Venue: Drai’s Nightclub @ The Cromwell (3595 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

More events and more venues for CES 2018 in Las Vegas can be found on the Discotech app.  Safe travels to and from Sin City, enjoy the convention, and look for Discotech back in your own town!  (We’re in 25 North American cities and counting…)

Las Vegas New Year’s Eve 2018 Party Guide

Was 2017 a lucky one for you???  For Las Vegas – the entertainment, nightlife, and gambling capital of the world – it was certainly an up-and-down year.  On one hand, the city welcomed its first professional sports franchise – the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights – with great crowds and rousing early success, and then broke ground on a new stadium for its soon-to-be second, the NFL’s Raiders franchise (moving from Oakland in 2020).  On the other hand, the city also suffered an unspeakable tragedy in the form of the worst terrorist mass shooting in American history during its annual Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival back in October.

As the year draws to a close, a sense of normalcy and community has returned to Las Vegas, and its glittering fast-paced lifestyle is proudly back on display for all to see – #VEGASSTRONG no doubt.   The trademark winter chill has descended upon the desert, but the casinos, entertainment shows, nightclubs, and bars have bounced back well and warmly from this past autumn’s tragedy.  The city’s locals are forever grateful for the emotional and financial support provided by the renewed streams of visitors coming from all over the world, and they are ready to do what they do best: deliver you stress-free good times for New Year’s Eve weekend and beyond, well into the 2018 calendar year.

For one last chance in 2017 you’ve got a tailor-made excuse to set aside all your past year’s disappointments and low points and promise yourself that next year will be THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE, all while surrounding yourself with fun-loving strangers, pulsating music, and premium liquor as you dance all your cares away.  And there are few better cities in the world for doing this than in Sin City, the world’s preeminent entertainment destination, with hundreds of fabulous party options to suit any taste.

In Vegas, they say “Luck Be A Lady” and all visitors hope and pray this fleeting dame does plant a lucky midnight kiss on their cheek to ring in the New Year.   While we can’t control what happens to you at the blackjack or craps tables this weekend, Discotech can most certainly assist with you finding good fortune at a great party.  Here our “Lucky Seven” picks for the best NYE nightclub parties/events around Sin City for you and your friends – be they Rat Pack or Wolfpack – to ring in 2018:

1) Bruno Mars Hosts NYE 2018 @ The Bank Bellagio


Toast to a memorable year with Bellagio as The Bank brings in the New Year the only way it knows how: with fabulous parties, amazing menus and drink specials, and over-the-top entertainment in the form of pop mega-superstar Bruno Mars.  Ring in 2018 in glitz and glamour and dance the night away in the 24K magic glow of the “24K Magic” man, who wraps up his year-long global tour with an encore return to the same venue where he rang in the 2012 and 2017 New Year’s celebrations.

Time: 9:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: The Bank @ Bellagio (Bellagio Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

2) NYE 2018 f/ The Chainsmokers @ XS

Is there any doubt that 2017 was the year of The Chainsmokers?   A slew of Song of The Decade candidates, a global world tour that can only be described as EPIC, and of course the residencies at two of the hottest nightclubs in Vegas.  This past year the duo put on numerous supercharged performances to packed houses at XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club at the Wynn — and now for the Grammy-winning pop duo’s incredible inaugural year as Steve’s nightlife residents, The Chainsmokers will lead the countdown to 2018 behind the decks at XS Nightclub.  All Access New Year’s Eve tickets will be $150 for men and $125 for ladies, giving access to both indoor and outdoor sections of the mega-club. Stage access is not included. Under the Stars tickets, with outdoor access only, are priced at $75 for men and $65 for ladies. Tables range from a $2K minimum spend on the outdoor patio to a $30K minimum spend for VIP stage tables.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: XS @ The Encore (3131 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

3) NYE 2018 f/ Chris Brown @ Drai’s Nightclub

Electronic dance music reigned supreme in Vegas throughout 2017, consistently commanding the highest-price tickets and tables in nightclubs around town.  That being said, there’s no doubt that hip-hop is enjoying a resurgence at the moment, and Drai’s Las Vegas has been a big reason behind that comeback.  This past year saw Drai’s surge to the top of the Vegas hip-hop nightlife ecosystem by committing to booking top-tier talent – Future, Migos, G-Eazy, Lil’ Wayne, to name a few – which in turn made Drai’s a coveted brand and destination not only for hip-hop royalty but for professional athletes and all of black Hollywood.  For New Year’s Eve, superstar performer Chris Brown – arguably the hardest working artist in R&B hip-hop – graces the stage to open 2018 in front of a star-studded and celebrity-filled crowd.  The pride of Virginia has made a reputation among Vegas locals for club performances that last over 3 hours – nearly twice as long as those of other headlining artists – so lucky fans in attendance will definitely get their money’s worth.  Ticketholders for the event will receive two complimentary glasses of champagne to toast at midnight.  Oh, and this will be a black-tie affair…. so channel your best James Bond impressions,  take this tutorial, and come to the Cromwell dressed to the nines.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00AM

Venue: Drai’s Nightclub @ The Cromwell (3595 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

4) NYE 2018 f/ 2 Chainz @ 1OAK Las Vegas

If you’re a 2 Chainz hater, then you’ve spent a frustrating 2017 sitting on your hands while the Atlanta-born native has burned up the radio airwaves month after month.   Fast on the heels of his third album release in 2016, 2 Chainz dropped his fourth studio album “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” to start the summer, and it immediately became the go-to album for barbecue/pool party background music.  Star-studded tracks such as “Good Drank” featuring Gucci Mane and Quavo, “4 AM” featuring Travis Scott, “Big Amount,” featuring Drake, and of course the ultra-catchy “It’s A Vibe” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Jhené Aiko, and Trey Songz kept the star in the public eye, and his “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” tour with his The Trap Choir was a smashing success.   For New Year’s Eve he returns to the site of his 2017 Vegas residency for a special performance featuring surprise guests and all his hits; lounge room tables start at $1,000 and main room tables at $2,500.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: 1OAK LV @ The Mirage (3400 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

5) Steve Aoki @ Hakkasan

A 2017 Hakkasan Group resident and the selected headliner for their New Year’s Eve festivities, Steve Aoki is known for the enthralling electronic sounds and hard-hitting beats of his highly energetic shows.  The DJ, producer, and California native began his musical career in 1996 as founder of Dim Mak Records; since then his label has released over 250 music records for other notable electro house artists such as Datsik, Infected Mushroom, Dada Life, Zeds Dead, Aoki’s own collaboration with Tiësto, MSTRKRFT, The Bloody Beetroots, Felix Cartal and Mustard Pimp, Bloc Party, Battles, The Kills, The Gossip, Klaxons, Scanners, Whitey, and Mystery Jets just to name a few.   A surefire fan favorite for his captivating stage presence and zany antics – his signature move is throwing cakes into the crowd – Aoki enthralls dance floors and concert halls around the globe with his remixes and collaborations with some of the best-known DJs and recording artists of our time.  Which of his world-famous friends will join him on stage at Hakkasan on NYE to do his world-famous “Aoki Jump” for the 2018 jump-off?

Venue: Hakkasan @ MGM Grand (3799 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV  89109)

6) New Year’s Eve f/ Marshmello @ Intrigue

Wouldn’t it be fund to spend NYE rollicking and laughing the night away with one of EDM’s most talented artists and most humorous, quirky personalities?  A picture is worth a thousand words, and a Youtube clip is worth a million.   Enough said.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM
