If you want to dance the night away, pull out your dancin' shoes and head out to one of the many Las Vegas nightclubs.
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.

How to ensure a smooth entry into a Las Vegas Nightclub

Arrive early, preferable before midnight.

For guys, having a pretty girl by your side helps. Nightclubs always strive for a 1-to-1 ratio of girls to guys.

It is harder for men to get into a club than women?
Yes, it's easier for women to get into a club in Vegas than it is for men. So don't get upset when a group of hot looking girls are let in while you are left standing out there in the cold.
What's the best way to get the doorman's attention?
Patience and politeness is the key here. Having a pretty girl by your side also helps. Yelling "hey dude" will definitely not get you into any decent Vegas club.
What's the deal with bottle service at Nightclubs, do I need one?
No, you don't need one. However if you want to feel like a true VIP with guaranteed entrance, bottle service is the way to go. With bottle service comes the privacy of having your own table and attended to by your own personal waitress.
Dress code is strictly enforced at all Vegas night clubs. What does this mean?
This means, dress to impress and it also means,
No Baggy Clothing
No Athletic Footwear / Sneakers
Dress is casual chic. Gentlemen must wear a collared, button-up shirt and dress shoes. Las Vegas nightclubs reserves the right to decline entry of any guest not in proper dress code.
