March Madness in Las Vegas starts on the 1st of the month, and while the basketball action is starting to heat up nationwide. The temperature is what is finally starting to heat up the desert. After a long and cold winter. The Las Vegas Beach Clubs finally open their doors again to officially kick off the Summer Season. These pool clubs typically take a few weekends to ramp up to their normal occupancy rates. But the sight of scantily clad women under the rays of the warm desert sun are welcoming changes of the season, for those that live here and also for those of you traveling in from much colder climates.
NASCAR comes to Las Vegas every March, as racing fans from across the country travel from far and wide to watch the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series live from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Events are widespread throughout the strip during this weekend. But the most memorable moment has to be the parade of stock cars and teams that take over the strip and do burnouts for the masses. This spectacle brings out fans of all ages and is definitely a sight to see!
The Irish Holiday of St. Patrick’s Day is arguably one of the biggest drinking days of the year globally, and Las Vegas does not disappoint when it comes to the extravagant celebrations. One of the busiest places during this holiday is Old Vegas & Fremont Street north of the strip. Due to the ethnic connotation of its namesake, Fremont street is the place to be when St. Patricks Day rolls around. Annually, the busy street is home to an overabundance of drunken fools and green beer – all of which mix perfectly to create the desired Irish-Infused nightlife. Matching Fremont Street in culture is the Irish Pub/Casino O’Sheas located at The LINQ Hotel & Casino. This pub is pure fun, with over 50 types of beer, table games, and drinking games. This hidden gem has its own Leprechaun as well to greet you and pour beer down your throat!
Though St. Patrick’s Day may take most of the focus, Basketball fans are willing to overlook the green-infused holiday for an unofficial holiday in its own right – March Madness. The opening weekend of the collegiate basketball tournament draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to many of the sports books and casinos. Many of the nightclubs even have watch parties for this immense weekend of basketball. Light Nightclub opens its doors to cater those that want to watch the games on the biggest possible screens, with bottle service and models to match!
Basketball isn’t the only sport going on in the world during March. The Las Vegas Golden Knights NHL Hockey team enters its final playoff run! The T-Mobile Arena is nearly sold out every game in its inaugural year. That trend should continue as the dominant upstart knights look to close out their season strong in March.

Since March (In Las Vegas, at least) signifies the coming of spring, you should expect to be breaking out of your winter parkas and briefly slipping into a light windbreaker. A few weeks into the month, and you’ll start seeing some of the resort pools along the strip opening their doors to the public. While most of the pool parties occur during the day, the pools (private and public) are open well into the night and give off a nice aura of relaxation with soft lighting, a continuous string of house music, and plenty of liquor.
On its surface, March doesn’t seem to have much to offer. For most of the nation, it is just another cold month that must be survived before being able to enjoy the sunshine and warm weather that summer brings. In the city of Entertainment, though, March is another month stock piled with parties and events. From the green beer of St. Patrick’s day to the high end liquor served at any of the resort pools, Las Vegas’ liquid entertainment will flow through the month like a river.
