With its striking attention to detail and vaudevillian-inspired performances that infiltrate the audience, The ACT Nightclub inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo has redefined the Vegas nightlife experience since opening in October.

Being an internationally known venue, with a second location in Dubai and sister venues THE BOX in New York City and London, we cater to a much larger and diverse audience than the standard ‘DJ in a box’ clubs that are currently popular in Vegas. We take pride in pushing the boundaries of what you should expect from a Vegas nightclub.”
Every detail inside the “decadent and debaucherous” club was meticulously planned by New York City nightlife impresario Simon Hammerstein. The 15,000-square-foot, multi-level venue merges aesthetic elements that range from an Italian opera house to New York City’s Grand Central Station Post Office.

To further differentiate itself from the competition, The ACT is an “open format” dance venue, playing everything from EDM to Top 40 to hip-hop.
“You visit The Act because you’re tired of the mundane and of the ordinary,” Hawkins concluded. “You want excitement and–love it or hate it–that's exactly what we’ll give you.”
