Discover Pool Parties & Nightclubs
It’s pool party season! You don’t want to miss Encore Beach Club and the recently renovated Tao Beach. But if nightclubs are more your speed, check out Zouk at Resorts World – it’s the newest venue to hit the Las Vegas Strip. And, of course, clubbing is 10x better with bottle service!
There are so many excellent shows in Las Vegas! From comedy and variety to magic and Cirque Du Soleil, you’re sure to find something you’ll love. And there are some recent additions, too – like America’s Got Talent Live at the Luxor.

First Timer Tips
If it’s your first time in Sin City, figuring out what to do can feel overwhelming! So here are a few suggestions I hope will help make planning your trip a little easier.
If you love a good party, you’ll want to put a club (or two) on your list. I highly recommend XS Nightclub at the Wynn, and Marquee at the Cosmopolitan. For dayclubs, EBC is fantastic. But it comes down to the type of music you like, so take a look at each club’s event schedule before deciding where to go. Typically, the more popular the DJ, the more crowded it will be!
Now it wouldn’t be a trip to Vegas without eating at a buffet! I’m a huge fan of Wicked Spoon. But if happy hour is more your speed, don’t miss STK at Cosmo or BRERA Osteria at the Venetian. The latter’s menu is quite extensive, too!
If you want to check out the iconic stuff, the Bellagio Fountains, Neon Museum, and Mob Museum are fantastic options. The Neon Museum is much better at night, though!
A rideshare service is the fastest (and easiest) way to get around town. But if you want to save money, Vegas has a monorail system. So you can buy a pass for a single ride or multiple days. And there are even stops near popular hotels, like MGM, Paris, The Linq, Caesar’s, and Sahara.
