Where is it? The MGM Grand
What you can expect: Stairs. Lots and lots of stairs connect the venue’s five floors, which include a huge dance floor, spacious bar areas, and, if you need some downtime, the Ling Ling Lounge, which is perfect for grabbing a seat and escaping the dance party for a little while.
Who will you see? The biggest DJs in the world who aren’t signed to XS. That includes Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Afrojack, and if you come on the right night, Questlove spinning in the aforementioned Ling Ling Lounge.
Bonus perk: The adjacent Hakkasan restaurant offers the best Cantonese food you’ll find in the state of Nevada. After dinner, you may be able to make your way into the nightclub without dealing with the long lines outside.
When to go: Thursday. It’s the only non-weekend day it’s open.
What’s missing? An outdoor area. Even this massive space can get a little claustrophobic after a while.
