The best seat in the house
There’s no question that Las Vegas has a lock on some of the best nightlife in the world: Multimillion dollar spaces filled with the latest in interactive technology; world-renowned DJs and the biggest names in music putting on the most unforgettable performances; multiroom experiences, each with their own vibes and amenities; breathtaking designs filled with the finest in textiles and furnishings; and yes, some of the best VIP tables that a person can buy. Cha-ching! Want to know exactly what table, at what awesome nightclub, is the best seat in the house? We’ve put you in the know by rounding up six stellar choices!
Drai’s Nightclub – Dance floor Table 1
The Cromwell, 702.777.3800
This massive rooftop nightclub and dayclub with both indoor and outdoor spaces, and views up and down the Las Vegas Strip, has drawn some of the biggest names in hip-hop to its large stage. Resident artists and surprise performances have included Wiz Khalifa, Chris Brown, Future, 2 Chainz, Rae Sremmurd, Migos, Nas, Trey Songz, Lil Wayne and Big Sean. The nightclub is packed with more than 75 primo VIP tables, but if you want to see all the action from every angle and face the stage for those prime performances, book Table 1 (or one of its three identical counterparts) in the middle of the dance floor. Security keeps the general crowd at bay, and each of the tables are spacious to host a large party comfortably with easy access to the restrooms, too.
Hakkasan – Table 21
MGM Grand, 702.891.3838
Five floors of decadence make up Hakkasan. The first two floors make up the famed restaurant, followed by the Ling Ling Lounge and Club, where you’ll hear the best hip-hop beats. It’s on the fourth floor in the nightclub’s main room where you’ll find the largest kinetic light art installation in the U.S.—the Hakkasan Grid, recently installed inside the nightclub. Watching the infinite shapes and colors of the grid as it responds to the DJ’s music is an experience that you don’t want to miss—and you can make that happen by booking Table 21. This VIP table, located right off the dance floor (with easy access to the club’s exits and restrooms) offers better views of the grid than any other vantage point within the main room. And it’s large enough to accommodate big parties.
On The Record – Table 30
Park MGM, 702.730.7777
Coming in at just 11,000 square feet, On the Record might be the smallest new nightclub to enter the Las Vegas arena, but it packs a powerful punch in its design and décor, musical lineup and its cooler-than-cool throwback to the days of records, boomboxes, garage and house parties and speakeasies. To get the maximum enjoyment from this special venue, head to the main room and its Table 30, located in the upper dance floor area next to the humidifier fireplace that affords the best views of the dance floor and DJ booth, as well as the stage. The table also gives your party access to a private karaoke room right behind the table.
Tao – Table 55
The Venetian, 702.388.8588
For more than a decade, this Asian-themed hot spot has drawn an A-list crowd from the world of movies, TV, music, sports and more. It continues to be a top contender in Las Vegas nightlife, offering a world-renowned restaurant, sexy lounge and nightclub experience. And since opening in 2005, Tao’s Table 55 has hosted the most celebrities of any other table inside the 40,000-square-foot space—everyone from the Kardashians and the Hiltons to Mariah Carey, LeBron James, Snoop Dogg, Marcus Allen, Nicki Minaj, Floyd Mayweather, Drake, Bruno Mars, Ryan Lochte, and on and on and on. The table is also in close proximity to the dance floor and the famed bathtub girls, and has perfect views of the DJ booth and stage.
Omnia – Table 11
Caesars Palace, 702.785.6200
Spread across 75,000 square feet of opulence, Omnia’s main room is where you’ll witness the world’s biggest superstar EDM DJs perform, and it’s where you want to park your party for the evening for the club’s other mind-blowing spectacle—the 22,000-pound kinetic chandelier that shines every color of the rainbow while fluidly moving to the beats of the music and morphing into some of the most stunning shapes you’ll ever post to Instagram. And Table 11 is where you’ll be able to capture all the glory of the chandelier from underneath it. This table is also in close proximity to the DJ booth and, according to the nightclub, “is the table to see and be seen, not only by the guests but by the DJs as well.”
Kaos Nightclub – Table 380
Opened in spring, Kaos is the newest entry into the world of nightlife—and part of the Palms’ $690 million renovation. The 29,000 square-foot club also opens up onto the massive 73,000-square-foot dayclub. Inside the nightclub no expense was spared, as the space is nothing short of futuristic chic with a Tesla coil ceiling that not only creates a full production of special effects but also lights up the many disco balls that pulse to the sounds of the music. And table 380 gives guests the best views of all the technological action. The table is also just feet from the dance floor, and the views are unbeatable as you survey the entire nightclub and watch big-name acts like Cardi B and G-Eazy perform onstage.
