When Resorts World opened in 2021, the first all-new Strip hotel in more than a decade invested heavily into its entertainment. That includes Zouk Nightclub, which counts Zedd, Tiesto, and DJ Snake among its high-profile DJs—plus regular appearances by pop stars like Becky G and Madison Beer. The main dancefloor, a tight fit for Vegas standards, sits under the Mothership, a high-tech LED chandelier that shifts position, changes color, and may even point a spotlight on a table during a bottle service presentation. Cool, right? The ceiling is covered with additional LED panels and a second room, Empire, can open up to make the club an even larger party. Zouk has a surprisingly thoughtful craft cocktail program for a nightclub, so hang out by a circular bar near the club entrance and order something different than your usual Jack and Coke.
How to book: Search the website for tickets and VIP options. Zouk also has mobile ticket kiosks by the main entrance for last-minute entry with a QR code on your phone.
When it comes to nightclubs, you can't go wrong with Omnia. After opening in 2015, it still has that "like-new" club feel with a rooftop terrace that shows off killer views of the Strip from Caesars Palace. While longtime headliner Calvin Harris has been missing in action (working on his Ibiza farm it seems), the star power remains huge with regular appearances by Martin Garrix, Kaskade, and Illenium. Technology is almost as big an attraction as the DJs. The main room, modeled after the Metropolitan Opera, is famous for its massive, 22,000-pound chandelier that hovers above the dance floor and moves to the music. It was designed with your Instagram feed in mind. The smaller club-within-a-club Heart of Omnia is the space formerly occupied by Pure and showcases Latin music on Sundays.

Hakkasan has been around since 2013, but always finds a way to keep things fresh. An extravagant grid over the main room is billed as the world's largest kinetic light art installation with nonstop lights, colors, and imagery to enhance sets by EDM headliners like Afrojack and Steve Aoki. Custom Made Fridays is a new weekly hip-hop focused event with Tyga, Ludacris, and Rich the Kid as regulars. Head downstairs, where the smaller Ling Ling Club hosts open-format DJs and the Ling Ling Lounge (try to keep 'em straight) has its share of chill and hip hop. Pre-game next door at Hakkasan Restaurant, a Cantonese fine-dining spot with direct access to the club, and take advantage of the free Hakkasan valet for those with dinner or VIP table reservations. It's worth it just to avoid the long walk from the MGM Grand parking garage.

Jewel is a little smaller than some of the other clubs in Vegas, but that only adds to the energy and atmosphere at this ultra-modern party spot. Between Lil Jon, O.T. Genasis, and Brody Jenner (yes, that Brody Jenner), Jewel makes a point to have an eclectic lineup of resident headliners. Wow-factor is felt in the illuminated staircase by the entrance and the LED video effects near the stage. Five large VIP rooms overlook the main floor, each with its own theme. For example, the G.O.A.T. pays tribute to American sports while the Blind Tiger is modeled after a vintage speakeasy. Flawless Mondays is a busy industry and locals night—and if you're not staying out late on a Monday, you're not doing Vegas right.

Marquee allows you to choose your own experience. Party hard in the main room, where an elevated DJ booth gives clear views of the button-pushing and fist-pumping as it happens, or hang by the pool where you can soak in the lights of Las Vegas. The Boom Box, on the other hand, is more of a cocktail lounge, but don't worry, you can still invest in bottle service with windows that overlook the Strip. The Library has bookshelves with a pool table and fireplace. Check it out during Tulum-inspired Wednesday night parties with tech and deep house. The DJ lineup was recently given a jolt with the addition of Above & Beyond and DJ Paulie D, along with longtime fixtures like Mustard and Fisher. When the sun is out, Marquee Dayclub is one of the busiest pool parties on the Strip. The same vibe is felt Sunday nights during weekly Drenched After Dark events.

XS has been around for more than a decade now—a lifetime in Vegas nightlife—but instead of trying to rebrand itself or tweak its identity, the venue remains fresh and timeless with frequent design updates. A rotating DJ booth separates the main dance floor and an outdoor pool deck that hosts Nightswim parties on Sunday nights. The place is all about indulgence with real gold decor and 10,000 individual light fixtures to keep the mood in check. XS further lives up to its name by investing big bucks into residencies by the likes of Marshmello, Diplo, the Chainsmokers, and more. Max out your credit card on bottle service at one of 170 VIP tables and cabanas, or test your luck in the outdoor gaming area in an attempt to make some of that money back.
