Become a Vegas VIP
I never thought I would have to type this, but it’s going to be tough out there for party people going to Vegas over the next few months to celebrate birthdays, bachelor & bachelorette parties, & those who typically party their way through the strip. Just like in high school, the party people are grounded.
But, all is not lost. We are talking about Vegas here. So the mega clubs, raging pool parties, and some of the nightlife has shut down, but there’s still plenty of ways to party in Vegas.
First, it’s pool season in Vegas and while the dayclubs are closed, hotel pools have re-opened. Two hotel pools that we instantly think about for a party atmosphere are the Flamingo GO pool (21+) and the MGM Grand pool complex. Both have a party vibe even when the dayclubs or open and we expect them to get even more rowdy with the new restrictions.
The Cosmopolitan pool complex is typically pretty tame, but the Cosmo is typically a young vibe and with some of the deals (we go a $99/night offer for a studio terrace in June/July) we expect the pools to pick up on the weekends without other outlets.
You also might consider moving the party downtown Vegas. The Golden Nugget has one of the top pool complexes around and would be a perfect place to party.
The Wynn, Bellagio, Caesars & Venetian also have awesome pool complexes that are typically a bit more low key, but where there’s a will, overpriced drinks, and a way, you can still have fun. Other hotels that will be opening soon with great pools include Aria, Mandalay Bay, & Mirage.
The one way the pool party scene will change without the mega clubs? There’s no guaranteed party scene. You may have to make a party at your own pool. This might mean expand that invite list and invite your crazy friend that always seems to find trouble that you were on the fence about.
Nightlife Will Look Different
Nightclubs are out for the foreseeable future, so finding the party in Vegas is going to look a bit different for a while. But don’t fret party people, there’s still plenty going on when the sun goes down.
For a low key vibe, Vanderpump Cocktail Garden in Caesars serves up some of our favorite craft cocktails in Vegas and has a cool, airy vibe. Mayfair Supper Club took the space that was Hyde nightclub and sits right in the center of the Bellagio Fountain, offering dinner and entertainment that ramps up as the night goes on. It’s more of a restaurant, but a great option for a longer dinner and drinks without the club scene.
Top Golf at MGM Grand opens in mid-June and offers a unique party experience. The Vegas Top Golf is unlike others, as it has two pools and an awesome party atmosphere for a group.
Vegas also has a number of touristy joints that may not typically be the party scene you think of in Vegas, but might do during this interesting time. Senior Frogs, Mararitaville, and Carlos ‘N Charlies all offer fruity drink and even amazing open bar opportunities. You can get an entree and 4-hours of open bar for just $46 as they are welcoming back to Vegas.
O’Shays is opening in the LINQ, which offers a lively atmosphere. It’s not going to be confused for Hakkasan, but still a fun place to have some drinks and hang out with your friends while making new ones.
And there’s always some of our favorite spots open like Chandelier Bar, Clique, and Vespar at the Cosmo where you won’t be overdressed in your club bests.
Overall, the party scene in Vegas will change in 2020, but there’s still plenty of ways to enjoy whatever you are celebrating during this crazy time!
