If you like world-famous DJs (Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris), eating exquisite Cantonese food, and imbibing specialty cocktails, odds are you'll love Hakkasan Las Vegas. You can sip on a wide variety of mezcals alongside Japanese whiskies, and the cocktails themselves are often works of art, including the longtime favorite Smoky Negroni, which blends Ransom Old Tom gin, vermouth, and Campari with Grand Marnier infused with smoke. Thirteen flights are also available that showcase whiskey, rum, and other high-end spirits.
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.
