If you've come up to Lake Tahoe to go skiing or boarding, hopefully you will still have enough energy to hit the dance clubs when dark falls. The best nightclubs in the Tahoe area are at the casinos in Stateline. This includes the Montbleu Resort, Harrah's and Harvey's.

The Opal Ultralounge at the Montbleu Resort is a fun and stylish nightclub with a trendy dress code, go-go dancers, a DJ who plays mostly Top 40, light shows and body painting. Opal is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 p.m. until dawn and the cover charge is 410. Wednesday nights have $1.50 PBRs, Thursdays offer $1 drinks all night. On Friday nights ladies get to drink free and on Saturdays ladies pay no cover before midnight. Saturdays are also Bachelorette Party Night. Since the casino and nightclub is in Nevada, smoking is allowed.
The second club at Montebleu is the Blu Nightclub, which is only open for special events.
The Vex Nightclub at Harrah's is a little more low-key than Opal, but still has some fun vibes including acrobatic dance acts by both men and women, light shows, a DJ who plays Top 40, a bartender who makes stiff drinks, a VIP section and no dress code. The lines for Vex on Friday and Saturday nights can get a little long, so get there early if you can. Vex has a winter special for guests wearying a ski or lift pass dated within 7 days…they get in free.

The Cabo Wabo Cantina at Harvey's is owned by Sammy Hagar and he will sometimes make an appearance. You can start your evening with dinner and margaritas at the Cabo and then dance along with various live music bands or picks by the DJ. The dancing is fun and the Cabo has made a name for itself for having some unruly customers and beautiful visitors in the under 25 crowd. Once in a while the Cabo will have spontaneous dance contests.
