Cinco De Mayo

Though not as busy as Memorial Day, the Fifth of May—and the weekend that follows—nonetheless draws partiers from all over North and South America to pregame for summer. Interested in the best spots for margs and Mexican food? Read more here.

EDC 18 - 20

The ever-popular Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) comes early this year. Electronic dance enthusiasts wield glow sticks and paint the town neon for three days, from Friday, May 18, to Sunday, May 20. If you aren’t a fan of electronica, consider yourself warned. Read more here.

Limo, cover and two drinks for $35-$40 each

Memorial Day Weekend 25 - 28

Memorial Day marks the start of summer and is easily one of Las Vegas’ biggest weekends. Be sure to book your hotel early as revelers will pour in for three days of nonstop debauchery. Expect long lines for nightclubs and pool parties if arriving without passes. Check club schedule & ticket prices.

Many locals will stay away from the Strip and head to Lake Mead. Like Havasu and Powell, its Arizona and Utah counterparts, Lake Mead is one of three reservoirs on the Colorado River famous for boating, jet skiing, and faux beaches. Memorial Day is one of its busiest weekend as locals and tourists flock to its shores for sun and fun.

Candlebox & Cracker (Free concert) - 25

May kicks off the series with ‘90s alt rockers Candlebox and Cracker. They play on May 25, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. Be sure to get there early if you want to be close to the stage. Crowds will amass as the night continues. Prepare to be packed in standing room only.

Blink 182 Residency at the Palms - Begins 26-27

Pop-punk trio Blink-182 begins their 16-date Las Vegas residency at the Palms over Memorial Day weekend, May 26-27. They will inject a much-needed rock infusion into Sinc City, offering visitors a chance to cut loose and ask, “What’s My Age Again?”

Nightclub Bottle Service and VIP Package Deals

With summer arriving, nightclubs fill up quick. Partiers looking to skip the lines should plan on booking a VIP table. Unless money is no object, calling up the club directly is rarely the best option. The hottest clubs let LavishVegas fill their premium locations at a lower price than out-of-towners who call them directly for some weekend partying.

If your group isn't set on a specific DJ and just wants a great bottle deal, we can also help you book one of Las Vegas’ less crazy hot spots. You won’t wait in line, and we may even comp you a bottle. To get VIP table service and book a great bottle deal complete our form here.
