Gonna Have a Good Time
Where Las Vegas|December 2019
Everyone comes to Vegas to party in one form or another. For those wanting to ring in the New Year at the newest spot in town, look no further than The Mayfair at Bellagio. Part restaurant, part lounge and all show, it’s set against the backdrop of the Bellagio Fountains and will return guests to the glamour of the days-gone-by supper club— Vegas-style, of course. The Mayfair opens New Year’s Eve. For those who can’t wait, here are nine hotspots to kick off your festive Sin City experience.

XS AT ENCORE

Drake and Las Vegas seem to go handin-hand these days. The multi-platinum artist has had a successful limited run of performances at XS throughout 2019. Though Drake’s Dec. 30 performance at the posh club has been called the “final installment,” we’ll believe it when we hear it. No matter when you visit, it’s a see-and-be-seen club—a favorite of the beautiful, the monied and Nightclub & Bar magazine, which named XS as the No. 1 club in America for five consecutive years. 702.770.7070

TAO AT THE VENETIAN

A long-time Vegas favorite, TAO is hotter than ever. A visit on a Saturday night practically guarantees you’ll be rubbing elbows with a celebrity, either in the second-floor club or the first-floor restaurant (which is one of Vegas’ top spots for sushi). We love to start our evening in the enchanting lounge, cocktails and appetizers in hand, fueling up for a night on the town. 702.388.8588
