You've made it to Friday, everybody's favorite weekday. It may not technically be the weekend, but once that final bell rings or the clock strikes five, the weekend festivities can begin - and in Vegas, they don't stop until Sunday evening. There is plenty to do on a Friday night with nightclubs kicking into full gear for the weekend to come.
1OAK at the Mirage hosts two different events bi-weekly, with feature artist Clinton Sparks showcasing his talents two Fridays a month. When Sparks isn't manning the booth, Flashback Fridays welcomes throwback artists, having featured artists like Color Me Badd and Naughty By Nature at previous events. Whether you're too young to remember these classical artists or not definitely won't hinder your ability to enjoy their energetic live performances.
Friday nights in Vegas are when you're likely to come across celebrity sightings, especially at the Cosmopolitan's Marquee. Already known for being a celebrity and celebutant hotspot, Marquee kicks their party into full gear every Friday with world renown entertainers like the EC Twins, Gareth Emery, Jordan V, and Steve Castro. Catering to a young, exuberant crowd, Marquee's Friday night parties are consistently some of the most popular on the Strip.
At Mandalay Bay, things get sophisticated in the Foundation Room. Typically hosting laid back affairs and offering a light air, the Foundation Room turns the dial up a little bit with Bubbles for Beauties. Drink specials cater to the gorgeous ladies that walk through the door while DJs, both resident and guest, guarantee that the party won't stop until the doors are shut and locked. Over at The Bank, Bellagio's classic nightclub, a bi-weekly affair hosted by DJ Ikon is thrown every other Friday.
DJ Koko will be at the Hard Rock Hotel's Body English, headlining Rock Candy Fridays. Body English is the Hard Rock's premier nightclub, offering the rock and roll style that you'd expect from a Hard Rock property. DJ Casanova showcases at Chateau on Fridays, ringing in the weekend with a little French ambiance and some truly dance worthy tunes. The Chateau is considered one of Sin City's nicest nightclubs, and bringing in the weeks end at this multi-faceted space will guarantee you'll be going into next week a different person.
Just down the strip you will find Town Center, home of an upscale local bar and nightclub. Blue Martini has quickly become a hotspot for locals with the secret leaking out to tourists as well. Located on the Strip and minutes from Mandalay Bay, Blue Martini offers a great alternative to a Friday night party on the Strip. Reasonable bottle pricing, talented musicians, and a comfortable atmosphere make it the ideal spot for people looking to party, but don't want to deal with crowds on the Las Vegas Strip.
Don't leave your Friday night party to chance. Pick a party and book your spot at one the second that you can, else you will be spending the start of your weekend at McDonald's.
