Las Vegas New Years Eve 2019

December is a quiet month in Las Vegas until NYE comes around

Average temperature low and high: 39°- 57°

Looking to extend your fall or take a break from the onslaught of winter storms? Explore the Las Vegas nightlife in December. While temperatures can touch the 30s, the sunny skies and crisp air create a pleasant atmosphere for vacationers to tour the Strip and be entertained by shows, concerts and of course, New Year’s Eve parties and fireworks.

Las Vegas New Years Eve 2019

Las Vegas New Years Eve 2018

Las Vegas throws one of the nation’s largest New Year’s Eve celebrations, second only to the Times Square ball drop in New York City. More than 400,000 people are projected to ring in 2019 on the Las Vegas Strip, which is closed to traffic from Russell Road to Sahara Avenue beginning at 6 p.m. The nearly six-mile stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard turns into what could only be described as the world’s largest street party, complete with fireworks and noisemakers.

New Year’s Eve is one of the biggest nights of the year for Las Vegas nightclubs. The hottest DJs will take the stage and in some cases, open-bar deals will be offered. If nightclubs aren’t your scene, many Las Vegas bars and strip clubs have open bar packages as well.

Those looking to avoid the Strip might feel more comfortable Downtown, where the Fremont Street Experience will host live bands on multiple stages, drink specials and a midnight countdown on the largest LED video canopy in the world. While not quite as congested as the Strip, Downtown will still have its share of crowds and chaos.

Best Locations to Watch the Fireworks

  • High Roller – Take it all in 550 feet above the strip (see party packages)
  • SkyFall Lounge – The 64th level of the Delano offers the perfect lookout from the south end of the Strip
  • Stratosphere: The tower stretches 1,149 feet in the air and is the best vantage point from north end of the Strip
  • Foundation Room – Intimate spot with outdoor patio on the 63rd floor of Mandalay Bay
  • Hustler Club – Open bar on the rooftop. See below for details

Quick Tips for New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas

Be prepared to open your wallet. New Year’s Eve is the most popular night of the year to visit Vegas. It’s also the most expensive. Hotels can be triple or quadruple their usual costs. Covers for nightclubs start around $100 for males and go up from there, although admission may include complimentary drinks and a champagne toast. Even Uber and Lyft rides surge to 300-400 percent their usual price.

Book early. Shows, concerts and hotels will be very limited by Christmas.

Plan your evening around midnight. Find a casino, bar or club before 11 p.m. or you could get stuck waiting outside.

Be 21. While Las Vegas offers fun for the whole family, New Year’s Eve is not the time to come if you’re not of legal drinking or gambling age. Those under 21 are not allowed in gambling areas or nightclubs. Anyone under 18 is not allowed on the Strip without a parent or legal guardian after 6 p.m. You must be 21 to be a part of Fremont Street’s Downtown Countdown.

Dress appropriately. Even though Las Vegas weather will seem warm compared to where most people are traveling from, the desert gets cold and breezy at night. Short-sleeve shirts and backless dresses may seem like a good idea, but you’ll regret it later.

For men, the colder nights offer a great opportunity to showcase your sophisticated side in a suit or sport coat. You might even want to add an overcoat. Double-check your feet. Much like ladies’ heels, men’s dress shoes that haven’t been broken in will feel horrible after a half-hour of walking. Pick shoes you can dance in. Wear thick socks.

Club wear and cocktail dresses look great inside, but women familiar with Vegas know to bring a coat or sweater to cover up while outside. Carry a bag with a small set of flats for walking the Strip and change into your heels when arriving at your party destination.

Free Drinks & No Cover NYE Weekend

Yes, you can actually get free entry and drinks at some of the top Vegas clubs on NYE weekend. As always, where to go for free drinks can be found on the bars page. You will need to login to get RSVP info.

Limo, cover and two drinks for $35-$40 each at Las Vegas Strip Clubs

Things To Do in December

December in Las Vegas continues where November ends. Weather is still cool. Nightlife is moderate. Cowboys continue their Sin City invasion, reminding visitors from around the globe that with its Western roots, Vegas is still wild at heart.

Though perhaps not as heavily advertised as rival, PBR, the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association is the world’s oldest and largest rodeo-sanctioning body. From December 5–15, UNLV’s Thomas and Mack Center hosts their National Finals Rodeo, where you can watch roping, riding and racing. Performances begin at 6:45 p.m. each evening.

The cooler winter weather also affords visitors the chance to attend bars and clubs dressed to the nines. Unlike the peak season, you won’t roast traveling from casino to casino in your favorite sport coat.

Shows, Events & Concerts in December

CONCERT & EVENT SCHEDULE

With the presence of the National Finals Rodeo looming large, the first half of December is overloaded with country shows in Vegas. George Strait returns to T-Mobile Arena on December 7 and 8. Gary Allan plays The Joint at the Hard Rock on December 14-15 while Kane Brown takes the stage at the Park Theater on December 15. Blue-collar comedian Ron White continues his brand of crass cultural commentary with performances at the Mirage December 7-8, 14-15. Country superstars Reba, Brooks and Dunn continue their “Together in Vegas” residency with shows December 5, 7-8, 12, 14-15 at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

Those in town for the rodeo will want to check out Cowboy Christmas, December 5–14, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Exhibitors include hatters, cobblers, saddlers, leather workers and just about any seller of Western clothing in America.

Pop superstar Lady Gaga kicks off her much-anticipated Las Vegas residency on December 28 at the Park Theater inside the Park MGM. The ENIGMA production will feature Gaga’s biggest hits in an all-new high-tech stage production. She’ll round out the month with additional shows on December 30 and 31.
