EDM has taken over the music world, and with that, Las Vegas. So much so that if you’re coming to town to party, chances are you’ll end up at an EDM club.
In fact, the majority of dayclubs and nightclubs in Las Vegas play house music. And as EDM is the foundation of Vegas’ club scene, it’s arguably the best place in the world to experience this genre of music.
Not only are the EDM Las Vegas clubs an attraction all their own (it takes millions to build one), but the mind-blowing DJ line-up is what ultimately brings club-goers from around the globe.
Nowhere else will you find this many powerhouse DJs all on one street. For example, you’ll see Calvin Harris, Tiesto, The Chainsmokers, Kaskade, Zedd, and Diplo, and that’s only naming a few.
The good news is you won’t have to do any research on where to go as we’ve done the work for you. So get ready to rage and dust of those shuffle kicks! Here are our top picks for the best EDM Las Vegas clubs.
#1: XS Nightclub
If you would’ve asked us a couple of years ago, we’d have said that Omnia was the best club for EDM. But, when The Chainsmokers signed on for a residency with Wynn Las Vegas, we had to make XS our #1 choice.
Why XS Is Our #1 EDM Las Vegas Club
The sheer number of powerhouse EDM DJ talent is what sets XS apart. In addition to The Chainsmokers, their dream team of DJs includes Diplo, RL Grime, Major Lazer, Marshmello, David Guetta, Alesso, and Kygo.
XS is one of the few indoor/outdoor clubs in Las Vegas. Inside, the nightclub features tables in a half-circle layout surrounding the dance floor and DJ booth. This design allows bottle service patrons to have some impressive views.
Additionally, the elegant interior space has so many gold touches you’d think Midas himself built the venue. But what you’ll notice most is just how sexy it is.
For instance, silhouettes of women’s bodies grace the walls, while gold poles are spread throughout the club. The poles are mainly reserved for bottle service guests to dance on, but if you’re a lady, you may be able to jump up there too.
What’s most notable about XS, though, is their outdoor area. If it weren’t for the loud music and light show, you might forget you’re even at a nightclub.
Set in an abundance of trees with opulent cabanas and twinkling string lights illuminating the pool, XS’s outside space offers a unique experience. Even the light show is different from the show going on inside the club. And you can gamble out by the pool as well.
Most importantly, though, if you hang out here or book bottle service outside, you’ll still get to see the headliner perform.
XS Nightswim is a pool party at night, so getting in the XS pool is highly encouraged! Almost every guest will be in the outside section of the club too. And yes, the DJ spends most of his time performing here.
If you want to get bottle service, you’ll get the best experience at an outdoor table.
Since it’s a nighttime swim party, attire is casual on these evenings. Almost any clothing goes, including swimsuits. You’re certainly welcome to dress up, though, if you’d like.
Nightswim is also reserved for the summertime, so you won’t find it during the cooler months. It’s worth noting, though, that Vegas’ summers span quite a few months thanks to our high temperatures. So for event dates and availability, it’s a good idea to check XS’s calendar for Nightswim events.
#2 Omnia Nightclub
Omnia Nightclub is one of the newest additions to The Hakkasan Group’s vast club portfolio. At approximately 75,000 square feet, Omnia is also one of the biggest clubs ever made.
Why Omnia Comes In At #2
As we mentioned above, XS just barely beats out Omnia regarding DJ talent. But, Omnia stands out in their residency with one of the most popular DJs in the world: Calvin Harris.
The venue’s other top-tier DJs also include Steve Aoki, Afrojack, and Zedd. (For upcoming events including Omnia’s artist lineup, visit Omnia’s official Las Vegas site.)
The nightclub is known for its famous chandelier and it’s one of those things that you must see to believe. Trust us; it’s effing cool!
The fixture is the largest out of any club in Las Vegas. At 33 feet wide and weighing roughly 22,000 pounds, it produces a light show that’s out of this world.
Additionally, eight concentric circles make up the behemoth chandelier as it moves and rotates seamlessly with the music across two levels.
And The Hakkasan Group might not like us for saying this, but we think it resembles a spaceship. Especially when you see any of the 60 moving lights beam down on the crowd. So if you’ve ever wondered what it would feel like to be in an Independence Day movie, head to Omnia!
Omnia’s rooftop terrace is the perfect place for a more intimate clubbing experience. Or, if you want to get some air, it’s a beautiful space to catch your breath too.
The outdoor area was even inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It’s everything whimsical for an EDM night!
Here, you can dance under the stars with lights glowing from the floor. And because the rooftop patio faces The Strip, you’ll get one of the best views in all of Las Vegas. There’s also a DJ exclusively for this section of the club. And there’s a fantastic rooftop bar so you can drink to your heart’s content.
The terrace isn’t open year-round, though. So if you want to check it out, come during the warmer months.
Heart of Omnia
Another unique feature of Omnia is its club-within-a-club design. You’ll find EDM in the main room, but the venue also has a hip-hop room called Heart of Omnia.
Now you’ll have to pay close attention to find the entrance to this somewhat hidden club as it’s on the right side of Omnia’s main room.
Heart is usually open most weekends and on Tuesdays. (In fact, this club is super popular on Tuesday nights!) You’ll only hear hip-hop in here, though. But you can head to the main room for some EDM whenever you’d like.
#3 EDM Las Vegas Club: Hakkasan Nightclub
As The Hakkasan Group owns both Hakkasan and Omnia, it makes sense that Hakkasan would also have a killer DJ line-up. So it won’t come as a surprise to learn that the event calendars are similar because the DJs are shared.
But what makes Hakkasan stand out, though, is that it offers less expensive bottle service options than Omnia. AND you’ll still get to experience the same DJs.
Why Hakkasan Is Our #3 Pick
At Hakkasan, you’ll get to see Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki, Zedd, Hardwell, Above & Beyond, and more.
If you like Omnia’s chandelier, you’ll appreciate Hakkasan’s Grid. This massive grid is suspended from Hakkasan’s ceiling and moves up and down with the music, even changing shape. It’s ultra-cool and something you need to experience in Las Vegas!
3rd Level Club
Another similarity Hakkasan has to Omnia is its club-within-a-club concept.
On level three of Hakkasan Nightclub, you’ll find one of the most popular hip-hop clubs in Las Vegas: the 3rd Level Club. It’s open most weekends during the year too. And it’s great if you have friends that want to hear hip-hop, but you’re all about that EDM life.
But, fair warning, definitely take the elevator if you’re hopping between these two clubs as there are a lot of stairs. And they’re steep!
