You can also host a private party at one of their throwback event spaces like The Convertible or The Bungalow which provides you and your friends the ultimate off the strip theme party locales in Las Vegas if you’re looking for a more intimate affair.
The Artisan Hotel Boutique was once the coolest after hours spot in Las Vegas. Yet this unique hotel has still got a different brand of character that no other hotel can offer in Sin City. You might feel like you’re in the Louvre surrounded by neo-classical and contemporary artwork from all different periods of history, while sipping on a martini at the ultra-lounge. While there, you may catch the attention of some of Las Vegas’s more flavorful crowd that have made their way over from one of the many nearby strip clubs.
Make some friends and stick around a bit later on the weekends and you might feel you’re at a mega club on the med. The Artisan’s after hours party is rocking when their topless optional heated pool is in full swing along side some heavy bass and techno beats. Open 24 hours a day, it’s a must for anyone who doesn’t want the same old touristy crowd along the strip and is looking for something a bit more alternative.
Fuso @ The Hustler Club
Fuso is one of the newest after hours spots in Las Vegas located atop The Hustler Club, making Fuso the only strip club in the city where you can watch the sunrise. It’s one of the few clubs that offer rooms with doors that ‘close’, plus they’ll often include bottles of champagne and half bottles of premium liquor. The babes vary. Some are absolutely gorgeous. Some are your run of the mill Brazilians with ass implants and expensive taste. They have a pretty wide selection of lovely women, so be patient for your flavor to arrive- especially if you go between 1:30-3:00 during their busier hours. But don’t worry, they’re open all the way till 9AM.
What you wouldn’t expect is that they actually have a fantastic kitchen that stays open all night with a menu that offers some legit food at reasonable prices (compared to the drink prices). The nachos with pulled pork, wings , burgers, and chicken pesto panini are all top recommendations. You can book a free limo with no cover to Hustler by completing the booking form here. It’ll save you that extra $60 you’ll want for that special moment around dawn when you’re looking over the strip with Candy on your lap whispering in your ear.
The Sayers Club @ SLS
Live music is a must whether you’re local to or just visiting Las Vegas. The Sayers Club inside the SLS Hotel is a hip, boutique space if you want a first hand look at some of the best acts in the country. With a max capacity of 250 people, you’ve got a great view from pretty much anywhere, but table service is recommended and provided at a pretty reasonable rate by Las Vegas standards if you don’t feel like fighting through the crowd at the bar.
Cover bands, hip hop artists, rock bands- The Sayers Club doesn’t discriminate against any genre of music. The best part about it is that after you’ve soaked in a great live set and some mean old fashioneds, you can stumble out and immediately coast over to the blackjack tables for a well deserved nightcap.
One of the best after hours bars in Las Vegas is way over on the west side right off the 215 in a big space on Flamingo that at any given time just the parking lot can make you feel like you’ve just arrived at a music festival. PKWY Tavern is a 24 hour adult beer garden and playground infused sports bar where the staff is kooky & friendly, and the crowd is always vivacious.
A local stomping grounds for UNLV locals, the scene here is a mix of sports fans, college kids, and attractive local women. It offers both indoor and heated outdoor seating and supplies amusements such as giant Jenga, video arcade games, and even bowling. Show up and be ready to party because the crowd here on weeknights is lively enough. Come here on a holiday like Memorial Day or July 4th and get the full experience with food trucks and liquor sponsors making sure they meet all your celebratory demands.
