Put on Your Dancing Shoes: Las Vegas Strip's Best Dance Clubs

Las Vegas is the new dance capital of the United States, at least if you judge by the fans and the industry reports--two pretty good indicators. XS and Marquee top the lists of high-earning nightclubs, and it only takes one visit to see why.

Anyone visiting Las Vegas knows its many dance clubs are among the best. Attracting the world's top DJs, everyone from Afrojack to DJ Pauly D, it's easy to dance the night away at one of the Strip's posh nightspots. That's part of the reason why they attract so many Hollywood A-listers. You never know who might be at the table next to you celebrating a birthday when you're in a Las Vegas nightclub--and that’s part of the appeal.

Given the A-list clientele, it's no surprise that the Strip's nightclubs take dress codes very seriously. After all, you can't be dancing next to Paris Hilton in sneakers and a tank top. Be sure to dress appropriately (no warm up suits, please) if you want to make it past the bouncer, and don't forget your ID.

Now that you know what to expect, the only question left is where to go. Luckily, our list of the Strip's 10 best dance clubs is to point your dancing feet in the right direction. And since most of them are located within walking distance from one another, it makes it easy to go club-hopping!
