    During the week in Las Vegas may seem like it would be slow at the clubs. Well think again. Sunday – Thursday at Vegas nightclubs is better known as industry night. Industry night Las Vegas is when all the hosts and waitresses from the clubs go out to support the other venues. The perks of being in the Las Vegas industry is being given free entry, complimentary bottle service, the best table locations and a night out with your co-workers. Industry night Las Vegas is at every club, all week long.

    This is also good for visitors because the table minimums are lower, the entry fees are cheaper, and its the hottest crowds in Vegas. Plus, it’s a great way to meet a host from other Las Vegas nightclubs, so they can take care of you later that week or sometime in the future.

    While Fridays in Las Vegas are usually at least somewhat slower than Saturdays, you can expect that most all major Las Vegas nightclubs will generally be very busy.

    Since weekends in Las Vegas bring in a greater number of national and international tourists than weekdays coming to see the best of EDM Las Vegas events. We will let you in on a little trend: there isn’t always a huge difference in the quality of the weekend crowd from one club to the next, so it’s best to plan based on the nightclub’s scheduled performer or wherever you wanted to check out. Make sure to book you bottle service reservations, or get on the guest list in advance at the best nightclubs in Vegas. 


    Downtown Las Vegas has come a long way in recent years, and can be a great alternative for those who are looking for more of a relaxed bar hopping atmosphere and to get away from the top 10 Las Vegas Nightclubs. Most all relevant Downtown bars and nightclubs are located in the area known as “East Fremont.” They are all known for their lower prices, relaxed doors, lack of dress code, and approachability. Bonus? You can wander around on Fremont Street, see the light show, ride the zip line, and be a total unapologetic Vegas tourist for a night.

    • Commonwealth
    • Downtown Cocktail Room
    • Hennessy’s Tavern
    • Troy Liquor Bar

    A question most often emailed from those planning their Las Vegas entertainment itinerary is “which club has the most girls?” The answer, of course, is based completely on the luck of the draw. You’ll go to a particular club one week and have it look like Hugh Hefner’s birthday party, only to find it closer to a Men’s bathroom at a Nascar race the next.

    Because of this, there really isn’t a good consistent answer for finding the hottest girls at any one spot. It isn’t something anyone can predict. Your odds will always be improved at the newer and more popular clubs. In general, better looking crowds tend to go to those venues. 

    Sapphire Gentlemen's Club 


    Unless your friends are spending money on table service, nightclubs enjoying having bachelor parties inside of them about as much as fluffy the kitten likes being thrown into the bathtub. And we can’t really blame them, as it would seem that nobody likes to be surrounded by a bunch of dudes in a nightclub. If your bachelor party consists of more than eight (8) buddies and you don’t have a lot of $$$ to throw around, you might consider skipping the club and sticking to dinner, strip clubs, and the like. 


    The groom might not be having much luck getting into the clubs due to his unfortunate affliction of being born with a penis, but the bachelorette and her screaming friends will find the clubs more than eager to accommodate their parties in any way that they can. On the main page of, you’ll find a handy list on the right side of the page that provides you the direct contact of all of the bachelorette coordinators for the major nightclubs. They will be extremely accommodating towards getting you and your female friends in their venues.
