Las Vegas May shows, events, concerts & clubs ramp up as Memorial Day Weekend kicks off summer

Average temperature low and high: 60°- 81°

Get your summer started with Vegas in May. Party by the pool and work on your tan. Enjoy the perfect weather that Las Vegas has to offer. With big holidays, like Memorial Day, on the horizon, you will want to book hotel reservations and entertainment early. The busiest and most expensive times to visit in May will be Memorial Day Weekend (May 25-28) & Cinco de Mayo.

Things To Do In Las Vegas In May

Pool Parties

Marquee Day Club
Marquee Day Club

Pool parties begin to heat up in May, climaxing on Memorial Day weekend, as celebrities and top-ranked DJs head to these oases. Day clubs offer several options to accommodate your group. Digs such as daybeds typically start around $1K food and beverage spend. Request a cabana or daybed through LavishVegas to find out about comps and special deals.

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

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

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 and inflated prices for club covers and hotel rooms.

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.

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.
