5 Hottest Bachelorette Spots in Las Vegas

Having trouble planning your bachelorette / hen party? Well if you’re thinking Sin City, bright lights, and booze-fueled benders, then you’ve come to the perfect corner of the web. Las Vegas, the city practically designed for soon-to-be-brides and their posse of bridesmaid girlfriends, is the best place to make all of your wild party dreams come true. However, brimming with endless possibilities for hedonistic indulgence, planning the perfect night in Sin City can be a bit of a challenge.

Luckily, you have Discotech to help you recreate The Hangover –bachelorette edition, for a night that you and your girlfriends will be talking about for decades. Here is a list of 5 of our favorite activities and party packages for your final night of freedom. You only get married once (ideally), so there is absolutely no excuse not to pop some over-priced champagne and have a high quality night filled with pleasure, plastic tiaras, and penis-shaped party favors.

1. Marquee Nightclub and Dayclub

Marquee has it all, for those of you who do not want to hop around town. Start of your festivities at their day club for an epic pool party, before heading to their nightclub. Marquee really takes care of you, as the packages they offer are truly one-of-a-kind. For example, with their Rent the Runway package, you’ll get a Grand Cabana at the day club, an hour of open bar, a dress from Rent the Runway (you don’t even have to pack a dress!), and VIP entry to the nightclub. A little tip from us is to buy the higher tier of the package to skip the line completely. On top of that, additional packages include ERA by Ciara for in-room makeup and Gimme Some Sugar for cupcakes on your VIP table to spruce up the celebrations. Sign up for the free Marquee guestlist or book a table at Marquee LV for your bachelorette party today!

In case you and your girlfriends need to rejuvenate after your late-night bender we suggest you check out the Canyon Ranch Spa, shared by the Venetian and Palazzo hotels. This place is the Disneyland of spas, offering an impressive 134,000-square-feet of fitness classes, a rock-climbing wall, Aquavana thermal suite, spa packages, healthy spa cuisine, and of course— a VIP bridal suite where you and your girlfriends can get pampered with mimosas (remember, the fastest way to cure a hangover is to pour yourself a cocktail). We suggest you grab lunch at the Canyon Ranch Grill and lounge in the salt grotto after exploring the rest of the spa. After a day at the Canyon Ranch Spa, we can guarantee you will feel like a million bucks.

3. TAO Nightclub and Beach

This place is swarming with celebrities, and is the location Kim Kardashian chose for her bachelorette party. Get ready to ball out, because the best table locations start at $2,500 and comes with a bottle of champagne.

4. Hakkasan

Hakkasan is probably the most monstrously LIT club on Vegas nightlife block. This five story gargantuan venue has a shocking 7,000+ capacity, complete with technicolor lighting and massive video/LED screens, which cost an estimated $200 million to build. On top of that, this colossal nightclub boasts various restaurants, lounges, and different dance floor zones to accommodate all of your bachelorette party needs. A downside to Hakkasan is the ridiculous amount of stairs, which may be annoying if you and your girlfriends are strutting around in high heels. But their Custom Concierge Service is stocked with all types of all-inclusive bachelorette catered party packages, from VIP table service, Lounge Specials, Daylife Pool Parties, VIP transportation, as well as access to Vegas’s best male review shows.

In case you need to burn off those raspberry Cosmopolitans, we recommend you stop by Stripper 101, which is exactly what it sounds like: professional pole dancing lessons taught to you by real strippers! A huge favorite among bachelorette parties in Las Vegas, Stripper 101 has been featured on E! News, Cosmopolitan, and the Daily Ten. This fun and crazy workout, dubbed the “Night school for girls” will have you feeling toned and club-ready in no time.

Whatever you and your girlfriends choose to do, remember to drink plenty of water and stay safe. Also we suggest packing your most comfortable pair of heels (or extra flip flops) because there will be a LOT of walking happening. Last but not least, remember to have fun and bask in the glory of Las Vegas as well as the present moment of celebrating YOU.

Zedd Announces Omnia / Hakkasan Residency in 2017

Known globally for collaborations with Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, superstar DJ Zedd  has been signed by Hakkasan Group for a Las Vegas residency and is making his debut Saturday, 1/7/2017 at OMNIA Nightclub inside Caesars Palace.

The only stage on Zedd’s mind today is the magical center of the light cathedral that is Omnia, the crown jewel of Hakkasan Group’s Las Vegas empire. Zedd is the new resident DJ at all Hakkasan properties, and tickets are available online, with shows at all Hakkasan Group’s Vegas properties including Jewel at Aria, Hakkasan Nightclub, and Wet Republic at MGM Grand, but Omnia is the real powerhouse. When it first opened, before Zedd had any inkling of a forthcoming deal, he knew it was the kind of place he wanted to play.

“I was really blown away by the production,” Zedd says. “Everything was super clean and slick, and for somebody who puts a lot of emphasis on the visual aspect of a show, obviously seeing all the elements that were at Omnia was inspiring.

Zedd’s no stranger to Vegas. He calls it his second home because he spends as much time in that desert oasis as he does anywhere else. Whether he’s couped up in a cube at the Staples Center or standing victorious in front of sold-out crowds for his own tour, Zedd takes his role as an entertainer quite seriously. Vegas is and always has been an entertainment mecca. As far back as the days of the Rat Pack and Elvis Presley, it’s been a playground for adults looking to escape the mundane. Zedd is a worthy heir to that long line of showstoppers, and armed with Omnia’s shape-shifting chandelier, he’s got more than a few tricks up his sleeve.

“I forgot what magician it was, but somebody in Vegas said the DJs took their business away, which is really crazy to think about,” Zedd says. “Maybe it is kind of magic. I do agree.”

In 2016 Zedd was a resident DJ at Wynn properties, frequently on the decks at Encore Beach Club and XS nightclub.

Announced show dates in Vegas:

  • 1/7/17 – Zedd at Omnia Las Vegas
  • 1/21/17 – Zedd at Omnia Las Vegas
  • 2/8/17 – Zedd at Hakkasan
  • 3/14/17 – Zedd at Omnia Las Vegas
  • 4/1/17 – Zedd at Omnia Las Vegas
  • 4/29/17 – Zedd at Omnia Las Vegas
  • 5/13/17 – Zedd at Omnia Las Vegas
  • 6/13/17 – Zedd at Omnia Las Vegas

These are just the dates announced for Omnia –  check back later for show dates at Hakkasan, Jewel and Wet Republic.

Zedd started with music in his daily routine from early childhood on. Born Anton Zaslavski, Zedd was raised in Kaiserslautern, Germany by two classically trained musicians, he began playing the piano at the age of four and built up his knowledge of the Classical repertoire throughout his childhood, at times writing a song a day. At age twelve, Anton learned to play the drums and, soon after he began performing with the post-hardcore/metal trio Dioramic. As a preteen he was already composing and producing numerous rock songs in his band’s own studio. As the aughts progressed, Anton’s awareness of other genres widened, and in 2009 his interest in producing electronic music was piqued after hearing the French electronic duo Justice. With his gift for musicality and background in instrumentation, composition and production, the move into the realm of electronic dance music was seamless.

2009 proved to be a watershed year for Zedd. It was during this year that he began producing electronic music, and within an incredibly short period of time amassed widespread critical and audience acclaim. Within a few months of beginning his production work, Zedd won two Beatport remix contests, the “Armand Van Helden / Strictly Rhythm Remix Contest” and the “Fatboy Slim / Skint Remix Contest”. These critical wins gave the budding artists the notoriety and clout to catch the interest of Skrillex who essentially found him on the net and signed him to his new OWSLA label. He caught the ear of Interscope A&R Dave Rene and Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine and successfully released several official remixes for powerhouse artists such as Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, P. Diddy, Swedish House Mafia and Skrillex on labels including mau5trap, Interscope, and EMI.

In the realm of his original compositions, Zedd’s hit singles ‘Shave It’ and ‘Slam The Door’ (out through OWLSA) both held the top spot on Beatport’s charts for multiple weeks at a time. In the same year, his remix of Lady Gaga’s “Marry the Night” appeared on the deluxe edition of the superstar’s latest album Born This Way and his remix of “Born This Way” appeared on Born This Way: The Remix. In addition to his own compositions and reworkings of others’ songs, Zedd has had other electro heavyweights take their turn at his tracks, including Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade, Knife Party and more.

Zedd’s stellar development is undoubtedly linked to his unique and highly recognizable style of composition. It stands out in a crowded field as meticulously detailed and carefully produced, very playful and at the same time remarkably catchy despite the complex musicality drafting it up. Drawing from his diverse musical background spanning from classical to post-hardcore/metal to electro house Zedd’s music not only draws from uncommon sources but also has the ability to appeal to an audience outside the realm EDM.

Zedd signed with Interscope records in 2012 and released his debut LP Clarity in October to much critical acclaim. The album’s first single, “Spectrum,” featuring singer/songwriter Matthew Koma, garnered massive global attention climbing into the the Top 10 on the iTunes dance chart and holding on to the #1 spot on Beatport Worldwide for almost three weeks. The track then soared to #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Song chart and was ultimately named their Dance Club Song of the year as well as iTunes “Breakthrough Album of the Year (Dance) for 2012.
