Las Vegas Nightlife: 5 New & Newly Renovated Clubs & Bars On The Strip
The Playboy Club
The iconic little bunny tails live on at The Playboy Club, Hef's namesake. But this spot has come a long way since the days of gentlemen smoking cigars. At today's Playboy Club, expect hip-hop music, VIP gaming tables and views from the top of The Palms.
Inside the Chandelier
The best thing about this Cosmopolitan stunner? It's still kind of a secret. Sandwiched on the middle floor of the new hotel's iconic chandelier centerpiece, the little bar is managed by an expert molecular mixologist who concocts sweet drinks with edible plants and freeze dried fruit. Try the Verbena cocktail, which includes an edible flower called the 'buzz button' that pops open, or the Madame Curry, a very spicy Thai-inspired drink. The bar also has TK# private gaming booths.
With 30,000 feet of dancing space, pink strobe lights and a plush red VIP section, Pure couldn't be any sexier if it tried. Yet the staff here is more helpful and less ego-damaging than nearby nightclubs. The current sweetheart of the Vegas clubs scene, this Caesars venue is filled to the brim with sweaty dancers by midnight, so arrive early.
Dragon Noodle Co.
Hear that? It's your stomach and it's asking you to find a meal after your long night hopping through all those Vegas clubs. Stop in to Monte Carlo's Dragon Noodle Co. for the kitsch factor – it's loaded with paper lanterns and smiling cat figures. But stay for the surprisingly authentic menu of huge plates; try the Wok Tossed Garlic Eggplant and the Singapore Rice Noodles.
A brand new venture right inside Paris Las Vegas, Sugar Factory is one part candy store, two parts epic Las Vegas club. Comfort food staples get a sweet makeover with top menu items like Red Velvet Pancakes and Chocolate Pizza. For a tasty nightcap, the Chocolate Lounge features premiere chocolatiers and gourmet fondue to be paired with the champagne or dessert wine of your choice. Stop into the eatery's retail outlet which stocks their namesake crystal-studded lollipops popular with celebs like Kim Kardashian and Britney Spears.
