Boys and ghouls,
Are you ready for another Halloween hay-day in Sin City? This holiday is known for its debauchery and risqué outfits- the one night of the year when (almost) anything goes with dress code. Lingerie, crazy get ups, and tipsy patrons are just a few ingredients that make this one of the best times to visit Las Vegas. This year is set to be another one for the books, with grade A acts and performances lined up. The only question on your mind should be: how will I get to them all?
One important thing to understand when it comes to Halloween in the city that never sleeps is that most people party all week. The clubs fill their rosters with big names to entice anyone visiting even outside of the holiday to celebrate early. Beginning the week of the 25th, the cream of the DJ crop will be making their way to spots like Zouk, Omnia, Hakkasan, and Tao. If you’re looking to keep the party going while visiting, this is your chance to catch all your favorites.
Beginning October 25, you can catch Justin Credible kicking off the festivities at Omnia, followed by Lil Jon doing what he does best (hint: one word sums it up) at Hakkasan on the 27th. If you prefer a dose of EDM, Deadmau5 will be blowing up the stage at Zouk the same night. Starting the 28th you might be hard pressed to choose between some of the biggest names in the industry, because everyone from Afrojack (playing at Marquee) to Steve Aoki (Hakkasan) will be on the docket. Omnia will be hosting Alesso, and Zouk will feature DJ Snake- making this one of the biggest nights Vegas has seen in months.
Things won’t slow down from there, though. October 29 has Tyga (Hakkasan), Martin Garrix (Omnia), Zedd (Zouk) and Pauly D (Marquee) all vying for your attendance. The weekends are always incredible, but Halloween far outweighs most lineups throughout the year. On the actual holiday you have Steve Aoki at Jewel and DJ Snake at Zouk- but don’t be fooled. Just because two clubs are the only ones with bigger headliners doesn’t mean the strip will be quiet. Locals and tourists alike will flock to the main drag decked out in some of the most incredible costumes you’ve ever seen.
While costumes are permitted within the clubs, it’s important to understand the restrictions so you don’t show up, only to be turned away. Masks are not permitted, nor are any accessories that disguise your face and make it hard for security to compare it to your ID. Avoid bringing fake weapons, and don’t impersonate law enforcement. Slutty cops are one thing, but going full send could result in non-entry. It’s smart to book ahead of time, be that through individual tickets, guest lists or table service. Halloween isn’t the night you want to chance it- so save yourself the headache and pre plan. Once you’ve got your itinerary ready, the only question is: how Halloween hard core are you?
