Get Your Groove on at Las Vegas' 10 Best Dance Clubs



Las Vegas’ dance clubs attract the most well-known DJs and are consistently among the top-grossing clubs in the nation. Neither trend shows any signs of slowing down. Club-goers flock to Vegas to experience extravagant, high-energy dance clubs, and the clubs are more than happy to oblige.

While XS  remains the undisputed leader of Las Vegas dance clubs, it’s not the only place drawing big names and big crowds.

Club-goers will find it’s easy to dance the night away at any nightclub. There’s virtually no such thing as “last call” at these all-night parties. To have the best time, remember that a night at the club doesn’t come cheap. Be prepared for a cover charge and for the evening’s tab to be high. And before you arrive, be sure you’re dressed stylishly--dance clubs have dress codes.

The nightclubs in Las Vegas all offer dancing, but each has some distinguishing features, whether it’s the size of the dance floor, the type of music they play, their day club or even their view. At Drai's Beach Club • Nightclub and Voodoo Rooftop, guests have memorable views of the Strip, and they can dance indoors or outdoors. Plenty of clubs also have day clubs at the pool for at least part of the year.

Scroll on down for our list of Las Vegas’ best dance clubs.

DJs play a mix of music, both old and new, but often with more retro tunes.

Indoor space is also available, as is the expected VIP bottle service.
