The Empire State has been solidified as the stomping grounds for hip hop gods and underground legends alike. Whether it’s Jay-Z cementing his Roc-A-Fella empire or a 17 year old Biggie Smalls killing the free style game on the streets of the Bronx, it is no question that New York is a hub for the hottest hip hop clubs, and that the City is the center for New York’s clubbing scene. Here is a list of the best hip hop clubs, both upscale and ratchet, in New York City.Up & Down NY
Every floor of Up & Down is an adventure, night by night and room by room. The upstairs maintains a high energy club atmosphere, while the downstairs takes on the role of a chill lounge that has the ability to go from chill to wild in 0-60, creating a back alley club feel. Balance is key when programming the club so that both floors are both vibrant.
“The music upstairs provides the atmosphere of a modern day nightclub, a mixed format of current hits and surprise performances while the downstairs is more of a musical scavenger hunt, covering all spectrums, from classics’ to music that is just a bit ahead of the curve.”Avenue NYC
A trendy crowd, stunning tapestries and paintings as well as bottle service makes Avenue one of the most desirable nightclub/lounges in all of New York City.
The velvet rope, the guest list, the bouncers: it should feel like you’ve earned something when you make it past these gatekeepers. And give Avenue some credit: though it may not come off as inviting, it does make the rigmarole worth it. The self-described gastro-lounge is festooned with wood paneling, aristocratic portraits, tarnished mirrors and other trappings. Guests sashay on the enormous dance floor downstairs while a DJ spins pop and Girl Talk-inspired remixes up top. There’s a surprising menu of eclectic comfort food—everything from waffle fries to Kung Pao Chicken Satay to Pretzel Dogs. It’s oddly homey for a place like this, but don’t let the menu fool you: although reservations aren’t required, signing up for bottle service makes it a lot easier to get in.1OAK NYC
After passing through a coat-check anteroom where lines of cursive are engraved in the wall, patrons find themselves in an expansive room with a ceiling of raw oak slats and a zigzagging black-and-white floor that sets an El Morocco tone. The room is divided by a central black lacquered bar doling out $20 mixed drinks, and, in one corner, a VIP-type area with a roaring fireplace and giant artwork by Roy Nachum (designer of Southern Hospitality and Saucy) of a sexy nude flanked by buffalo. Beyond that area is a cruise-y outdoor smoking lounge partially enclosed by mirrored walls. Ostrich-leather banquettes line underlit brick walls covered by metallic gold curtains, offsetting a bizarre centerpiece—another large artwork of a young blindfolded boy with two horses. In the front of the room there’s a D.J. podium outfitted with what looks and sounds like a very pricey sound system and in the back, risers for those happy to sit without silver Dom Pérignon buckets in front of them.
The Jane Ballroom, with its grand and eclectic décor, has hosted countless events and film shoots. The Ballroom is versatile and can accommodate smaller events on the Mezzanine level or larger functions in the entire space. The stunning Hudson River views from the Roof are unparalleled, and the interior Roof Bar is ideal for a more intimate gathering.Goldbar
For over a decade, Goldbar has been a top nightlife destination in New York City. Famous for it’s golden skulls, 12’ vaulted gold leaf ceilings and crystal chandeliers, Goldbar embodies sophistication. The standout team behind Goldbar is dedicated to offering an exceptional and genuine nightlife experience. The décor, fit for royalty, sets the mood for lavish indulgence. With an impressive cocktail menu, created by renowned mixologist Tim Cooper, Goldbar is devoted to innovative drinks, with only the freshest ingredients and top-notch spirits.Red Rabbit
Red Rabbit Club is the newest New York City nightlife hot spot located in the heart of the Meatpacking District. Once inside, patrons will embark on a surreal journey through a series of stairs leading them down the rabbit hole and into the subterranean club. The venue features an elongated bar and invites patrons onto a sunken dance floor enveloped with plush red velvet couches and booths. With a state-of-the-art surround sound system, smart lighting and LED screens, Red Rabbit Club will enrapture you in an underworld realm of fantasy.
This new iteration of the Playboy Club — New York’s original branch closed in 1986 — opened in September, just west of the theater district. With its velvet banquettes, black walls and Sputnik chandeliers it resembles a midcentury bordello. It offers food and drinks 6 PM – 2 AM Monday through Saturday.Hotel Chantelle
Not actually a hotel, Ravi Patel’s LES spot is named after a French World War II safe house. Hotel Chantelle is retro in design as unmarked doors transport you into Patel’s version of 1940’s Paris. The room exudes warmth as dark mahogany wood panels blend with the black leather pin tucked banquettes under the glow of flickering exposed bulbs, candles, and a gold floral pattern that bounces off dark wallpaper. Cozy up in the banquettes or sit at the bar, where friendly bartenders are happy to explain the cocktail list, which features modern twists on old-school classics. They’ll lead you towards three concoctions: The Pineapple Express (jalapeño-infused tequila, pineapple, and pomegranate), Libertine (gin, cucumber, lime juice), and the Kir Yvette (sparkling rosé, lemon juice). Mix up your night with the attached rooftop restaurant or underground dance club SGTs.Sky Room
Occupying the 33rd and 34th floor of the Fairfield Inn & Suites Times Square by Marriott and the Four Points Times Square by Sheraton, the bi-level ultra lounge transports guests to a high energy oasis atop 40th Street and offers five distinct spaces: the North Terrace with its retractable roof, the South Terrace with its private cabanas, the Times Square Lounge, the Cube Balcony, and the Candlelight Lounge.
The North Terrace on the 34th floor provides a comfortable environment all year round with a fully retractable glass roof cover and panoramic glass walls, offering stunning views of the Times Square area. One standout highlight of the venue is the South Terrace on the top level, which features plush furniture and soothing ambient lighting amidst a lush landscape, set up to offer a luxurious space where guests can truly enjoy being in the heart of Manhattan, with views of the Hudson River and the Empire State Building.The DL
The DL is one of the friendliest, least pretentious, and high-energy nightclubs not just in the Lower East Side, but across all of New York City. This bass-rattling multi-level venue is fully equipped with an outdoor rooftop wood deck patio with retractable roof where the main dance floor congregates around a DJ spinning popular open format tunes.
Down below, the second level of the DL is a darker, grimier no-frills hip-hop sweatbox that has become the calling card for LES nightspots over the years; the entrance level first floor is an inviting bar/lounge with modern tunes playing in the background. Views of the New York City skyline, strong drinks, great music, and a younger crowd full of college students – mostly from NYU, Hunter, Baruch, & the Manhattan fashion schools – early twentysomething Tri-State area professionals looking to blow off steam, and visiting tourists gone wild make the DL a must-visit option for weekend fun.
The secret is out – Koreatown runs LA’s nightlife. Looking for the best nightclubs and bars in Ktown? Whether you’re trying to sip at a high end cocktail bar, get ratchet on the dance floor, or take shots of soju while chain-smoking, you’ll always find the kind of drinking spot you didn’t even know you needed tonight. But if you go in unprepared, it’s easy to get overwhelmed – and even worse, head home after first round.
So instead of spending another Saturday night wandering around 6th street, read this guide to the top 5 places to go out in K-town and know exactly where you’re headed this weekend. Or tonight.Terra Cotta (Restaurant/Bar/Club)
Terra Cotta is the newest restaurant venture from 6th Avenue restaurant group. Their menu draws inspiration on a global scale (incorporating not only Korean elements, but also Japanese, Latin American, and other regional influences)—a direction representative of the melting pot that is Los Angeles. They have a thoughtful selection of scratch house made cocktails, as well as 24 craft draught beers, and a broad and global wine program, offering something for everyone. The expansive interior offers touches of vintage glamour, such as 20-foot-high ceilings dotted with chandeliers, and grand tufted matte black booths.
Terra Cotta is open as a restaurant / bar on all nights, and open as a club with a DJ on Fridays and Saturday nights.Mama Lion (Restaurant/Bar/Club)
Pinkies up, ladies and gents. Owner Robert Kim and chef/partner Michael Hung’s glamorous new Koreatown restaurant, Mama Lion, has officially opened its doors, adding yet another key player to the neighborhood’s thriving culinary scene (Terra Cotta and Here’s Looking at You opened just last year, and don’t even get us started on the always-buzzing Korean BBQ hot spots). This glitzy new supper club, located on the corner of Western Avenue and 6th Street, is making a serious statement with stunning, high-concept interiors and an impressive, upscale menu.
From seared froie grois and caviar service (yes, you read that correctly) to uni tostadas and apricot soufflés, the seasoned chef is serving up a little taste of luxury that’ll pair perfectly with the range of craft cocktails prepped by Aiden Demarest of the Spare Room, Seven Grand among other high-end cocktail bars in L.A. Also on our radar? Truffled white bean hummus with crispy flat bread, hamachi tartare with Asian pears and Korean chilis, and a 28-day, dry-aged prime New York steak.
Mama lion is open as a bar / restaurants all nights of the week. On certain nights there will be live music performances – Fridays and Saturday nights are the “club” nights.Break Room 86 (Bar/Lounge/Club)
Enter through the loading dock off Ardmore then walk through an employee entrance. From there, you’re directed down a grey, glossy-walled hallway past the hotel kitchens and ice machines. The end of your destination is what was originally designed as the hotel employee break room, now transformed into L.A.’s newest ’80s bar – Breakroom 86.
Like most Houston Hospitality properties, there is an element of surprise to the entrance. We won’t ruin it for you.
Once inside, you’re in an underground New York dance club from the ’80s. There are old stacked TVs playing “Garfield,” “The Ghostbusters” and “Rainbow Brite” highlighting the dance floor, a DJ booth with a special area for friends — and a wall completely covered in tapes.Lock & Key (Bar/Lounge)
Following in the speakeasy trend set by the likes of the Varnish and La Descarga, this Koreatown lounge—a low-ceiling, white marble and green-leather banquettes set the “Caesars Club” vibe, perhaps a nod to the former karaoke inhabitant. As expected, the entrance is unmarked: A stylish red door leads to a theatrically disorienting wall of doorknobs and keyholes. Once inside Lock and Key, there’s a small selection of beer and wine—four bottled beers (IPA, Lager, Brown Ale, Triple) and six wines by-the-glass (bubbly, white, rose and red)—but the cocktail program is front and center. Fresh herbs, fruits, simple syrups and torches set the stage for well-made, craft cocktails prepared by attentive and friendly bartenders donning classic white collared shirts and black vests. There’s a limited late-night, food menu from the next door Stall 239—try the Lollipop Chicken Wings and not-so-date-friendly garlic fries.Arena Ktown (Club)
Arena Ktown is a nightclub, bar, and lounge with a fully operational kitchen & 7 karaoke rooms located in the heart of Ktown Los Angeles. Fridays and Saturdays are 21+ and over Hip Hop and R&B nights, while Thursdays will be for collegiate 18+ events with Hip Hop and R&B music. The venue can also be used as a special events music venue, private parties, corporate functions and pop up dining.
Arena recently expanded operations up to the Bay – you’ll find the party bumping every Thurs, Fri, and Sat at Arena SF.
Come ready to get turnt up – inscribed near the entrance in bright neon lights – DO IT FOR THE RATCHETZ.

Suns out, guns out.1. Kaos Dayclub at the Palms (Hip Hop/EDM)
Composed by award-winning design firm Friedmutter Group Las Vegas, the multi-level 73,000 square foot Kaos dayclub offers [two] luxurious main pools, numerous side pools and 39 unique cabanas (most with their own private pool). The focal point of the dayclub is a towering 65-foot bronze sculpture by Damien Hirst entitled “Demon with Bowl” (2014), which rises up from the center of one of the two main pools. Boasting the highest number of pools of any resort in North America, KAOS dayclub offers a luxe Greek-inspired oasis that can be found nowhere else in Las Vegas. KAOS will seamlessly blend the nightclub and dayclub experiences via a massive retractable glass wall/door that allows clubgoers to easily move between the indoor and outdoor venues. In addition, the nightclub has a rotating 360-degree DJ booth that allows talent to play to both indoor and outdoor crowds, while the dayclub has its own separate entertainment stage in order to provide for multiple performance locations. The dayclub can also accommodate up to [5,000] guests and incorporates a [seasonal] dome cover that will allow it to operate on a year-around basis. Kaos won’t always have a hip hop artist though – some days will be hip hop artists (Cardi B, Travis Scott, G-Eazy, J Balvin) and some days will be DJs. Before hitting up Kaos we’d recommend checking out the schedule!
Some call Encore Beach Club the “happiest place on earth”. After a day there you’d be hard pressed to disagree. EBC’s 50,000 square foot space features lounges, couches, daybeds, cabanas, bungalows, lily pads, 3 pools, a gaming pavilion, a state of the art sound system, the EBC girls, champagne showers, and beautiful people as far as the eye can see.
EBC is also host to a special Thursday night pool party, known as Thursday Nightswim at Surrender. If you’re in Vegas on a Thursday we highly recommend you check out the nightswim.
Resident DJs for 2016 include DJ Snake, Dillon Francis, Alesso, David Guetta, Diplo, Kaskade, Skrillex, Zedd, RL Grime, Avicii, Martin Solveig, and Flosstradamus.
Positioned atop The Cromwell on the 11th floor, Drai’s Beach Club reigns over what is arguably the busiest intersection in Vegas. During the daytime it’s a beach pool party on steroids; in the evening it morphs into an upscale high-voltage nightclub. The dayclub embraces north-facing views including the Red Rock Mountains in the distance and the Bellagio fountains across the street.
A central pool is flanked by palm trees and a white edifice with pink curtains covering the 15 second-floor cabanas outfitted with HD TVs — but with all the hard bodies dancing to the tunes of a live DJ it’s doubtful anyone will be watching much television. The nightclub, a two-story indoor space facing the dayclub pool, is all shiny black semi-circular booths and a horseshoe DJ station surrounded by columns festooned with postage stamp-sized mirrors.
Drai’s will very often be playing top 40 / hip hop but it depends on the DJ. On occasion they will bring in EDM DJs such as Quintino and Sidney Samson; on these days you’ll get a mix of hip hop and EDM.
Pro-tip: Residents at the Cromwell get free access to the dayclub.
A sprawling club complex in the heart of North America’s ultimate party city, Marquee is arguably one of the key architects of the Stateside dance music revolution. Split into Marquee Dayclub — a sun-blazed, opulent poolside space open daily during the Spring season — and Marquee Nightclub, with its three different areas (The Boom Box Room, Library and Main Room), it’s undoubtedly one of the most impressive venues in the US.
Its sound and light impress, too: boasting a Funktion One soundsystem with 32,000-watt subwoofers and a state-of-the-art audio-visual stage set-up designed by Steve Liberman, Marquee looks and sounds spectacular enough to wow the high rollers that have been known to visit the venue.
The dayclub features three-story Bungalow Lofts, complete with cabana, living quarters, grand Las Vegas pool cabanas with infinity pools and a party deck on top.
A privileged playground for partygoers, glitterati, and celebrities, Wet Republic at MGM Grand combines the best elements of Vegas nightlife with supreme poolside amenities to create the ultimate daylife experience. The unrivaled hot spot delivers a variety of experiences for its guests, whether they want to chill over cocktails in the poolside lounge, relax in exclusive VIP bungalows, or bask in the party scene on the main pool deck or cabanas.
The 54,500-square-foot pool at the MGM Grand just underwent a $3.574 million remodel to 18,400 square feet of the space. Last year, the pool debuted an expanded DJ booth, an upgraded LED display, extended bar and new furniture. The latest renovations added six new VIP bungalows equipped with furnishings, TVs and misting fans all equipped with three private plunge pools. New restrooms and shower facilities as well as an extended shade area have also been added.
Resident DJs for 2016 include 3LAU, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Chainsmokers, DVBBS, Martin Garrix, Nervo, Krewella, Afrojack, Calvin Harris, and Ingrosso.
On weekends, The NoMad Pool transforms into JEMAA – The NoMad Pool Party. A seductive and energetic daytime experience, JEMAA features our renowned cocktail program, tableside service, and a roster of top-tier DJs and artists delivering nuanced music programming — including a tropical house vibe on Sundays.
The pool is a luxurious and tranquil escape from the neon and glitter of The Strip. This garden-like oasis, inspired by the Majorelle Gardens of Morocco, features casual fare, expertly-crafted cocktails, and a robust selection of wines.
Daylight Beach Club (DBC) made it’s debut Summer 2013 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, and since then has gone on to become one of the hottest dayparties in Las Vegas. Daylight features 70 daybeds, 25 cabanas, 6 LED screens, a 5,000 sq foot pool. Like Light nightclub at the Mandalay, Daylight initially started out playing primarily EDM but with last years change in management Daylight has shifted to a Hip Hop / top 40 vibe for the 2016 season, with DJs such as E-Rock, Scooter & Lavelle, Eric D-Lux, DJ Mustard, DJ Scene, and Baauer.
Daylight is open during the summer vegas pool season, which usually starts late March/early April and runs til Labor Day.
Pro-tip: We have a free guestlist for girls and even ratio parties that includes drink tickets.
When the weather heats up, TAO Beach offers a sizzling hot daytime experience in Las Vegas. By day, guests can secure a reservation to lounge poolside in one of 12 luxury cabanas that feature such amenities as air-conditioning, high definition plasma screen televisions with gaming consoles, WiFi and customized mini bars. Other amenities include sunglass cleaning and a staff of masseuses. Asian-inspired day beds are scattered throughout the 18,000-square-foot oasis, which also includes a 30-foot bar where guests can sip on TAO-tinis and TAO-jitos made with fresh exotic ingredients. An extensive appetizer and grill menu is also available.
The outdoor oasis serves as an extension of the famed nightclub every Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the season with cabanas and tables for VIP bottle service. As night falls, guests will find themselves in an open-air nightclub featuring, two 14-foot fire columns, high-energy music from resident and international guest DJs and strategically-placed beds, perfect for lounging with friends while taking in the action.
Tao Beach always plays a mix of top 40 / hip hop / open format music. Bottle service here is also fairly reasonably priced as far as dayclubs go.
Bare Pool is located at the Mirage, with the trek to get there winding through a jungle oasis that feels like a secret hideaway. Upon arrival, you’ll find an intimate pool area where women are free to wonder around topless if they choose. Bare offers a more relaxing, chill atmosphere without the wall-to-wall packed in feeling of some of the other clubs. You’ll find 14,000 square feet that includes two luxury dipping pools, a full service bar, six plasma screens, poolside daybeds, chaise lounge chairs and cabanas. As with many of the Vegas pool clubs, expect to find an endless number of beautiful people, scantily clad and looking to be seen.
The atmosphere at Bare Pool is a lot more chill and laid back than that of the other dayclubs / pools. If you’re looking for a rager, you’ll want to skip Bare. If you’re looking for a place to lie down, chill, hang out with friends with some background music, Bare Pool is your spot!
Are you a fan of nightclubs? What about pool parties? A few clubs in Las Vegas have combined the two to create the nightswim – the pool party at night.
The Sunday nightswim at XS is the undisputed king. Featuring balmy 80 degree nights, beautiful people, and the biggest DJs in the world, nightswims are a unique experience that are essential to any Vegas trip. XS does not host a day party so your only opportunity to get in the water at the King of Clubs is the Sunday XS nighswim.
XS nightswim on Sundays is THE best party in Vegas, hosting up to 5,000 people in a gorgeous venue. Party to the beats of DJs such as Avicii, David Guetta, Zedd, Robin Schulz, Skrillex. If you’re in Vegas Sunday night you need to be at this party.
Dance culture has long been a part of nightlife, and the last 15 or so years have marked a resurgence of EDM and dance culture among the masses. Club owners in the nation’s capital caught on to this wave and created some of the best venues to be immersed in Electronic Dance Music. Below are the best EDM clubs for a night out in the nation’s capital.
You can sign up for guest lists, buy tickets, and book tables at all the venues below using the FREE Discotech app!
Echostage has been graced by some of the biggest names in the game – think the likes of Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, and Avicii (Rest in Peace) – and for good reason. The 30,000 square foot venue boasts advanced LED visual displays, unobstructed views from any seat in the house, and an insane German imported D&B Audiotechnik V series sound system that is sure to rock your world. In other words, Echostage was built for the best. Two 60-foot bars lining either side of the dance floor mean that you’ll never go thirsty at this venue, and 30 bottle service mezzanines allow you and your closest friends to enjoy the show from up high.
You know you get no BS when a venue is DJ owned and operated. U Street Music Hall is such a place, serving as a basement dance club and live music venue. Here you won’t be distracted by the extravagant gold-plated decor you will find at clubs like Heist – this place is all about the music. Aside from having one of the city’s best sound systems, U Street Music Hall has a 1,200 square foot cork-cushioned dance floor, which will ensure that you and 500 fellow music lovers will be dancing strong all night long. With a smaller max capacity than other venues like Echostage, club goers experience a much more intimate atmosphere at U Street Music Hall.
The 9:30 Club, known simply as the 9:30, is always packed… or at least it feels that way. The stage is set on rails that allow it to move forward and back so that the atmosphere always feels like that of a sold out show. This is the place to see artists up-close and personal, a rare occasion for names like Flume and Marshmello. While EDM is not the only music genre played at the 9:30, there is certainly no shortage. The 9:30 has a long track record of hosting the best concerts in DC, even being named #1 nightclub by Rolling Stone, Billboard, and Pollstar more times than any other club in the US. For your drinking needs, the club has four full bars and even has a coffee bar stocked with your favorite caffeinated products.
Humorously self-dubbed the “quietest club in D.C.,” Soundcheck boasts one of the strongest sound systems in D.C.. The entire venue is lined with four inches of soundproofing foam, which eliminates feedback from the 80,000 watts of sound that are pumped through Soundcheck’s $200,000 system. Soundcheck is one of the newer clubs in D.C. that is helping cater to the ever growing dance culture in the city. Here you will find anything from House and Techno to Trance and Drum ‘n Bass. If you’re looking for a place where music and dance are held in the same high regard, look no further than Soundcheck.
If you’re looking for a more upscale night, head on over to Ultrabar. There are more bars at Ultrabar than stories… and there are five stories. Although Ultrabar as a whole is huge, each floor carries its own vibe with four separate DJ line-ups. If you’re looking for a place to satisfy all of your friends’ musical tastes, you are sure to please at Ultrabar. Of course, EDM will be heard on most any given night.
Sax is the place to be for those looking for more than the typical nightclub. Imagine an extravagant French lounge with Moulin Rouge-esque dancers on a 20-foot enclosed stage paired with pumping house music. It’s as wild as it sounds.
Flash is not your ordinary EDM club, in fact, their website explicitly says to look elsewhere for EDM as a genre (referring to more popular forms that you might find in the top 40). At Flash, house music reigns king – and you’ll find everything from Deep House to Techno. The smaller space is designed to create an intimate atmosphere, making it one of the best ways to experience performances by national and international DJ talents. Flash has two levels, the Club Level and the Flash Bar. On the Club Level, music is carried through the room by a custom Funktion One sound system, which is paired with a top of the line lighting rig to enhance the experience. The Flash Bar features its own dance floor, separate DJ area, as well as its own bar that specializes in hand-crafted cocktails. With an incredible atmosphere and top-notch sound, Flash finishes out our list of the best EDM clubs in Washington D.C..

By sea or air, getting to Groove Island is easy and fun. You can journey to Catalina Island by ferry from four mainland ports in Southern California: San Pedro, Long Beach, Newport Beach, or Dana Point. The ride is only about an hour by boat or 15 minutes by helicopter. Aerial services to Groove Island are available from Long Beach, San Pedro, Burbank Airport and John Wayne Airport/SNA.
Once on the island, the town of Avalon is easy to navigate by foot. The town is 1 square mile so it’s a quick walk to almost anywhere on the island. Taxis and shuttle buses can take you to your destination, or you can rent bicycles or one of the island’s iconic golf carts.
MGM Resorts International announced today that Hyde Bellagio, the 12,000-square-foot indoor and outdoor nightclub and lounge known for its views of the Bellagio fountains, will close after service on July 6 to be replaced by a new concept this winter.
An MGM spokesperson could not confirm whether the new concept will be a nightlife venue.
Hyde has won the Las Vegas Weekly Best of Vegas Readers’ Choice Award for Best Lounge for the past two years and is also known for its industry night and XIV Session parties. Opened in 2011 in the former Fontana Bar lounge space, Hyde was the first nightlife venture in Las Vegas for SBE Entertainment, which had previously purchased the Sahara hotel and casino in 2007. Established in 2002 by Sam Nazarian, the company famously rebranded the classic Las Vegas Strip resort as SLS in 2014, a property now owned by the Meruelo Group. In addition to Hyde Bellagio, SBE currently manages Hyde Lounge at T-Mobile Arena and three restaurants (Citizens, Kumi and Red Square) at Mandalay Bay.
The closure of Hyde will leave Bellagio without a proper nightclub as the Bank closed in June after a decade-long run. That night spot was originally known as Light Nightclub from 2001 to 2007, a brand that re-opened at Mandalay Bay in 2013.
