Things to do in June in Las Vegas
Celebrate the Return of Las Vegas
June 1 marks the moment Nevada resumes full operation. It’s an exciting time for Las Vegas as restaurants, bars, casinos, concerts, and other venues welcome guests at full capacity. Clark County will have already assumed authority on restrictions on May 1, allowing nightclubs, pool parties, and strip clubs to return at 50-percent capacity. Expect the Strip to be packed. Just remember to get vaccinated first. Masks will continue to be mandatory in public spaces until further notice.
See a Concert in Las Vegas
Justin Bieber brings his tour to the T-Mobile Arena on Friday, June 4, after being rescheduled from last year. This will be the largest concert on the Strip since the onset of the pandemic. We’re still waiting for big-name residencies to return at venues like the Colosseum and Park Theater. Stay tuned for the latest announcements.

Explore a Hot New Resort in Las Vegas
After years of planning and construction, Resorts World finally opens to the public on June 24. The property is the first ground-up hotel built on the Strip in 10 years with more than 3,500 rooms and suites offered through an affiliation with Hilton. While the resort won’t be completely done by opening day, it will have Zouk Nightclub, AYU Dayclub, a next-generation casino, a host of new restaurants and bars, a massive shopping plaza, and a theater hosting residencies by the likes of Celine Dion and Katy Perry by the time it’s 100% up and running.
Eat out for Restaurant Week in Las Vegas
Restaurant Week runs June 7-18, with more options this year. Participating restaurants offer great food at fantastic prices with a three-course prix fixe menu, specialty menu, or takeaway menu available. It’s the perfect opportunity to check out places that might typically be out of your price range and sample their signature dishes. Money raised for Restaurant Week benefits the Three Square food bank, which helped feed many people out of work during last year’s economic downturn.
See a Comedian in Las Vegas
Comedy clubs are slowly resuming business as usual in Las Vegas. They include Brad Garret’s Comedy Club at the MGM Grand, the Aces of Comedy series at the Mirage, the Comedy Cellar at the Rio, the Showroom at the Plaza, and more. Check-in with each venue for the latest lineups.
Lounge by the Pool in Las Vegas
As the weather heats up, Las Vegas pools are sure to be busy. Dayclubs and pool parties like Drai’s, Wet Republic, Marquee, and Encore Beach Club have already returned with lounge-style formats and crowd limitations. Expect the pace and energy to pick up on June 1.
More fun things to do in June…
High Roller: Known to most tourists for its photogenic views of the Strip, the High Roller is at its best during the nighttime Happy Half Hour, which, for a few dollars more than the price of a regular ride, offers guests an open bar the entire time the wheel rotates.
Ziplines: Zip lines are a great outdoor summer activity. The breeze generated from flying at 30+ mph cools you off a bit during the hot weather, and the experience offers fresh views of Sin City and the surrounding desert. Review the best options here.
Nightclubs: Clubs like Omnia, Hakkasan, Tao, and XS have been operating at a limited capacity without high-profile resident DJs. But that could all begin to change on June 1. Look ahead to the top DJs performing in June.More Things to Do in Las Vegas
