Best Sunday Parties in Las Vegas

If you’re one of those people who quickly escapes Vegas Sunday afternoon after two nights of rage, this post isn’t for you. If you’re a thrill-seeking partier who can “hang” and continue partying, then keep on reading.

Some of the best Las Vegas nightclubs are open on Sunday, and provide some of the best variety in EDM and hip hop. For the most part, Sundays are considered an “Industry Night,” so you will see a lot of locals and fewer tourists in attendance.  So you can count on a good crowd.

Drai’s Nightclub

Better know as “SunDrai’s,” this rooftop party will have you on your feet all night, while enjoying hip hop music by resident dj, DJ Franzen or a live performance by artists such as Tyga, 50 Cent, and Fabolous. Click here to read the Official Guide to Drai’s. 

Hakkasan

Sundays at Hakkasan are Industry Night.  Besides a great crowd, you can also expect to see some top djs such as Tiesto, Chainsmokers, Steve Aoki and more.

The Bank

Located inside the Bellagio, The Bank Sundays are known for their Sunday parties. From industry events, Champagne Showers, to live performances and guest DJs, The Bank does it all, and is one of our favorite Sunday parties for open format and hip hop music.

XS

Located at the Encore, XS Sundays have a lot to offer.  During the summer the club hosts an outdoor pool party called XS Nightswim with djs such as David Guetta and Avicii.  The rest of the year the party is moved back inside, and just as wild as a Friday or Saturday night.

Tryst Nightclub to Close for Renovations

Update – the old Tryst will reopen as Intrigue with the grand opening date slated for April 28, 2016.

After 10 years as one of Las Vegas’ must-see nightlife venues, Tryst Nightclub will close. Reports recently surfaced that Tryst staff were notified the venue will close following Halloween for a total remodel, hinting the remodel could take almost half a year.

While sudden, this news is not exactly shocking, as the property has already announced a string of changes this summer. In addition to changes with Wynn’s restaurants, managing partner Jesse Waits also departed Wynn in July for the coming Alon resort, set to open in 2018 on the former site of the New Frontier.

Tryst opened on New Year’s Eve 2005, replacing the short-lived La Bête nightclub in the same space. While details about Tryst’s own replacement are still hush hush, Michael Weaver, Wynn’s senior vice president of marketing and communications, has confirmed this news, and that a new concept is in the works.

An insider who has reportedly seen mock ups of the new venue calls it simply, “gorgeous.”

DJ Lineup – July 4th 2015 Weekend in Vegas

While we may never know how our forefathers celebrated on July 4th, 1776 after adopting the Declaration of Independence, we’d like to think they would have popped some bottles (or jugs) and shut the club (or barn) down.

Nevertheless, Las Vegas is the new stomping grounds for millennials looking to properly state their claim to the freedoms of America: endless bottles of premium liquor whisked to your table by beautiful hostesses, pool parties with champagne showers, and open-air nightclubs with the greatest fire works display known to mankind (or so we think).

Wondering which DJs are spinning this July 4th? Here’s a rundown of all the Fourth of July 2015 events in Vegas. Download the Discotech App to browse events, book tables, and sign up for guestlist at all the hottest clubs in Vegas.

We’re adding events as they’re announced so check back for updates!

Kaskade in Las Vegas – EBC & XS 2015

If you’re planning a Vegas trip and you’re looking to catch Kaskade, you’ll definitely want to plan ahead. Kaskade has a 2015 residency at XS (nightclub) and Encore Beach Club (dayclub). Both of these are super popular clubs and Kaskade always draws a full house when he spins.

Seeing Kaskade – Bottle Service

You have a couple different options to get into the club – bottle service, guestlist, and tickets. Bottle service will be the most expensive option (but also probably the most fun). As a rule of thumb, you can get about 3 people in per bottle for XS and EBC. Bottles at XS start at $600 before tax and tip, bottles at EBC start at about $700 before tax and tip. If you’re looking to get table service we can definitely help you out – please visit our Encore Beach Club Bottle Service or XS Bottle Service page and fill out the form to get a quote.

Seeing Kaskade – Guestlist

Alternatively, we have a girl’s guestlist for XS and EBC which you can sign up for by downloading our mobile app. The guestlist for XS closes at 11:30, the guestlist for EBC closes at 12 noon. If you can rally your girls and make sure to get to the club at least 30 minutes before it closes this could be a good option.

Seeing Kaskade – Tickets

Your third option is to buy EBC tickets or XS tickets. The presale tickets pretty much guarantee that you’ll get in, and the presale ticket line is always significantly faster than waiting in the guestlist line.

The last option is to do a hybrid model. Let’s say you have a group of 10. You can get 2 bottles at XS or EBC to get 6 people in, and the remaining 4 can get in via tickets or guestlist. This lets you have a home base and also allows you to keep costs down. Contact us and we’ll help you figure out the best option for your party!

Kaskade is also spinning during two holiday weekends – Cinco de Mayo and Memorial Day Weekend. Both these weekends are going to be 100% sold out and will not have any guestlist. We’d recommend booking your tables and buying tickets in advance.

Kaskade Announces Multi-year Residency at XS

Kaskade will return to Las Vegas for the second time in 2015 at Wynn’s award-winning nightclub XS on Friday, January 30, 2015.

“After five years, I’m excited to return to my old stomping grounds,” exclaimed Kaskade. “I cannot wait to share mind-blowing experiences with fans from all over the world at Wynn once again. This is a homecoming that no one will forget.”

Breaking down barriers and shattering records, Kaskade has created a career of milestones for himself and the industry: the first DJ from the United States to secure a Las Vegas residency, the first solo electronic dance artist to sell-out Barclays Center, as well as the first dance artist to sell-out Navy Pier and the Staples Center during his Freaks of Nature Tour deemed “the only successful national stadium tour undertaken by a solo ‘EDM’ artist” by Billboard. With his unique creative prowess, he’s created chart-topping remixes for everyone from Lana Del Ray to Beyonce, has appeared at all the major summer festivals and has headlined nearly 200 times a year for the last 10 years.

Most recently, Kaskade received his fourth Grammy nomination for Best Remixed Recording for his edit of Galantis’ “Smile.” Previously, his eighth studio album Atmosphere scored him his second and third Grammy nominations for Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronica album. He received his first nomination for his double-album Fire & Ice, which debuted No. 1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Album chart.

“Kaskade is one of the most iconic DJs of our time and was one of the first artists we put in the center of XS nightclub for an experience that had never been seen before in Las Vegas,” said Jesse Waits, managing partner of XS and Tryst nightclubs. “His original tracks capture his fans and audiences around the world, which come across in his DJ sets that, without fail, create an atmosphere full of energy night after night.”

“We brought Kaskade to Encore Beach Club for his first exclusive Las Vegas residency in 2010, which ignited the dayclub scene and kick-started the huge EDM phenomenon seen on the Strip today,” said Sean Christie, managing partner of Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub. “His music and soulful persona sets a vibe in our venues that is totally unique to the scene and we look forward to another incredible summer.”

To keep the performances feeling current, the XS recently underwent a major technology upgrade that, ironically, is meant to tame the vibe a little. They’ll still have some of the flashy elements of a standard Las Vegas EDM show, such as pyro, LED lights, and digital screens, but the atmosphere will match Raddon’s sound, which is deeper than other Vegas staples like Tiesto and Hardwell. Waits and Christie added blue and purple mood lighting and a large white-draped golden arch to frame the stage projectors. Click here to see video of XS’s 10 million dollar renovation.

XS Reveals $10 Million Renovation

The Vegas nightlife arms race continues to heat up.

XS Nightclub has just fired a warning shot at its megaclub competition, unveiling a new multi-million dollar renovation for the award-winning Wynn property. The Las Vegas nightlife staple has completed a $10 million dollar production re-design that features state-of-the-art tech that surpasses that of its Vegas peers.

The upgrade includes a brand new pyrotechnic system, a DJ booth that encrusted in 14,000 LEDs, movable video screens, a fully-immersive lighting rig that covers the entire club, and a pixel mapped projection onto the club’s pool for a groundbreaking, never-before-seen, audio visual experience.

Jesse Waits, managing partner of XS and Tryst said:

“Even as one of the most successful nightclubs in the world, we are always looking to raise the bar whether it is with the DJs we bring in or the visual experience we provide. With this renovation, we have taken XS to the next level in nightlife.”
