There's a lot to love about Hakkasan nightclub. A massive five-story spectacle, the venue still attracts long lines on the casino floor of the MGM Grand years after its grand opening in 2013. Custom-designed from the ground up, the main nightclub on the top floor features a massive video wall and skyboxes that overlook the action. Bottle service presentations are among the most elaborate on the Strip with goofy props (like costumes, signs and flags) to match whatever occasion you're celebrating. Top headliners include Tiesto, Steve Aoki and special appearances by Calvin Harris (when he's not busy at Omnia).
While exploring the rest of the venue, you'll come across the Ling Ling Lounge, with comfortable couches and open-format DJs, including celebrity spinners like Questlove. This is where you opt for cocktails in place of bottle service, especially if you stop by earlier in the evening. Head next store to the intimate dancefloor of the Ling Ling Club (don't mix up the names) where up-and-coming DJs show up with something to prove.
The complex also includes Hakkasan Restaurant, a fine-dining spot that specializes in Cantonese cuisine and craft cocktails with a dark, seductive atmosphere and a fair amount of privacy between tables. You may even see your favorite EDM star enjoying a meal before their set later in the night. Insider tip: Ask about the mezcal selection. It's one of the best in Vegas.
