January promises to be a quiet, affordable month in Las Vegas

Average temperature low and high: 39° - 58°

Major trade shows are taking a break this year, making January a great opportunity for visiting a more quiet and affordable Las Vegas. Temperatures hover between the mid-30s and upper 50s. Compared to most of the country, winters are mild and ideal for vacationers looking to escape the snow and save on hotels and shows.

Things to do in January

Book a Night at a Brand New Vegas Resort

The biggest news in January is the grand opening of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. The new resort was renovated and rebranded from the old Hard Rock. More than 1,500 rooms and suites have been completely revamped with a 60,000-square-foot independently operated Mohegan Sun Casino.

The property’s expansive pool deck will be bigger and better than ever, with a promenade and two-level dayclub. Dining options include Todd English’s Olives (formerly at the Bellagio), Night + Market for Asian street food, Nobu and One Steakhouse’s return, a new concept by Michael and David Morton. Please note: an original January 15 grand opening has been pushed back to a yet-to-be-announced date. Check with the hotel or LavishVegas for the latest information. 

Enjoy the Perks of a Quiet Month

When trade show season, January is traditionally picking up with the International CES, AVN Expo, and other business-focused events. However, both of those are canceled this year in favor of online virtual presentations. That means the sky-high flights and hotel rates could also be taking a break this January. To save a few dollars (and endure fewer crowds) while visiting Las Vegas.


Party at a Lounge in Las Vegas

In the wake of COVID-19, nightclubs have evolved into lounges, modifying their formats to limit crowds. Marquee, Tao, XS, and Encore Beach Club are once again pumping music and offering bottle service. However, big-name DJs are on hold, and dance floors are off-limits, and table/cabana reservations are required. After the New Year’s Eve rush, you may be able to score a good deal.

See a Topless Revue in Las Vegas

Entertainment is slowly making a comeback in Las Vegas, including headliners like David Copperfield, Carrot Top, Tape Face, and Piff the Magic Dragon. But what if you want to see a little extra skin? Both Fantasy at the Luxor and X Country at Harrah’s are back in action with topless performances. Seating is limited with social distancing measures in place.

More Las Vegas headliners will be performing throughout the month.
