Most people arrive in Las Vegas to party for the weekend, so it's no wonder that Friday night is one of the best nights to see and be seen in Las Vegas. There is always a mix of good looking people out on a Friday night including locals, tourists, and celebrities who make Vegas their personal playground on the weekends. There are some many hotspots in Las Vegas to party at and Friday night is the kickoff to great events at nightclubs in Vegas.
The mega-club, PURE nightclub located in Caesar's Palace holds their world-famous celebrity hosted events on Friday nights inside its main dance club and also in the Pussycat Lounge. Some celebrities and DJ's include Jessica Simpson, Eva Longoria, Mariah Carey, Lindsay Lohan, DJ AM, DJ Hollywood, and celebrities including Paris Hilton, Charlize Theorn, Denise Richards, and Tori Spelling have all performed alongside of the Pussycat Dolls inside PURE Nightclub. PURE Nightclub is the most well-known club in Vegas and has 4 different themed rooms to keeps its guest entertained. The Terrace on the rooftop of PURE has one of the best strip views at night. You are right there in the middle of everything with views of all the action from both sides of the strip. The Pussycat Dolls have their own themed room and have 2 show performances during the night. The upscale Red Room has its own DJ and spins the hottest hip-hop tracks for clubbers to dance to.
One of the top 5 nightclubs in the world and also a popular Friday night destination, located in the Venetian Hotel is TAO Nightclub and Restaurant. TAO began in NYC and made its way to Las Vegas 3 years ago and has established itself at the most profitable restaurant and nightclub in the world. The list of celebrities and athletes that frequent TAO Nightclub, Restaurant, and TAO Beach is endless. Everyone from Jaime Fox to Paris Hilton can be spotted on a weekly basis on the dance floor tables at TAO. The millions of dollars that were poured into this Asian-themed restaurant and nightclub is evident throughout every corner of the room. This is why the lines can reach up to 2 hours at TAO. If you want to catch a glimpse of a celebrity or good-looking people in general, then Friday nights at TAO Nightclub is the place to be.
Recently the OPM Group from Miami extended its family to the Planet Hollywood opening its newest venture called Prive' Nightclub. Formerly in the space called Curve Nightclub, Prive' is a super-club with hip-hop celebrity guests, DJ's, and superstars on a weekly basis. From DJ's such as T-Pain, Nick Cannon, and rap superstars like Big Boi, 50 Cent, and movie stars like Charlie Sheen and Justin Timberlake hosting its Friday night parties, you will be sure to have a great time. Prive's high ceiling and open floor make it easy to move around, dance, and spot a celebrity. Prive' also has a lounge within itself call the Living Room where you can find a less loud atmosphere and place to hang with your friends without being over-crowded.
Another new and innovative place to be on Friday night is a grand mix of restaurant, nightclub, lounge, and live performances called Cathouse. Cathouse can be referred to as a Loungerie that is reminiscent of a sophisticated 19th century European bordello with interactive theatrics. These professionally trained performers can be spotted throughout the venue keeping the energy level high and the guests interactive with the energy flowing throughout the club. World famous chef Kerry Simon has created a menu that stays true to his roots, but puts a new spin on some of his dishes that has made him a household name including Grilled Tuna Nicoise, Pigs in a Duvet, and short ribs. Cathouse is perfect for a dinner date, then dancing all within the same space.
Friday nights are also fun in the MGM Grand. You can hit 2 hotspots in one stop without having to leave the casino. Tabu' Ultralounge and Studio 54 are both located in the 2nd largest hotel in the world at MGM Grand.
Just down the strip, at Town Center the newest upscale local bar and nightclub called Blue Martini has quickly become a hotspot for locals and the secret has gotten out to tourists as well. It is literally on the strip and just minutes from Mandalay Bay. Blue Martini on Friday nights offers a great alternative to the club scene in Las Vegas without sacrificing any of the fun or good-looking people. Blue Martini has very reasonable bottle pricing, a dance floor, TV screens, DJ, and a balcony to lounge at as well. There are so many places and options to go to on a Friday night in Las Vegas that it would be impossible to visit them all in just one trip. I guess that is just another good excuse to come back to Las Vegas for another weekend getaway!
