While most Vegas hotel nightclubs use to stick to hip hop and R&B, it seems that electronic dance music has taken over as the genre of choice for nightclubs in Sin City.
Finding Vegas nightclubs that play hip hop, rap, and R&B is getting more difficult each day, but it’s not impossible!
LasVegasSoul.com has the scoop on the best Vegas nightclubs for R&B and hip-hop music. Luckily for any hip-hop fans out there, it’s not impossible to find nightclubs with that genre of music if you know where to look.
Here’s Tiffany On the Town’s list for the top Vegas nightclubs for hip-hop music:
1. Drais Nightclub at The Cromwell:
This 65,000 square foot venue offers an environment that is taking entertainment and service to new heights.
Drais offers a good mix of EDM, to hip-hop DJs, and special guests. The venue has seen A-list celebrities not only partying at Drais Nightclub, but giving full-length live performances and DJ sets in the middle of the club by the likes of Chris Brown, The Weekend, J.Cole, 50 cent, Meek Mill, Big Sean, and many more. At night, this rooftop pool transforms into THE Vegas nightclub scene.
This place is truly an escape from ordinary nightlife. Drais aims for a diverse range of experiences offering entertainment all day between the beachclub, the nightclub, and the After Hours spot. Not done partying when Drais closes?! No problem, downstairs from Drais nightclub is Drais After Hours spot where you can find a spacious and intimate setting to wrap up the night. Drais After Hours is open 1-9AM, and offers two rooms for Las Vegas partygoers. The primary room hosts EDM and house music, and the backroom never disappoints playing hip-hop and top 40. TRUST, The hip-hop room in After Hours never disappoints. Trust when I say that Drais proves to be a top competitor in the nightclub scene.
2. The Bank Nightclub at Bellagio:
The Bank Nightclub is a long-time favorite both for visitors and locals. This place deserves a spot in your nightclub rotation if you love hip-hop and a more laid back night out. For a more concert-feel, the DJs are located above the dance floor as opposed to being directly on it and their performances are guaranteed to please the crowd. The dance floor is intimate, but great for meeting people, and mingling. The second floor allows you to break away from the crowd and "people watch" the dance floor. Live sets are usually performed here from chart-topping performers so treat your ears to some good hip-hop.
3. Chateau Nightclub and Rooftop at Paris Hotel:
Celebrity guests frequent this hot spot spanning more than 45,000 square feet. Open nightly Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, this Vegas nightclub is a fan favorite for the R&B and hip-hop crowd. The music is a mix of current and old school hip-hop in the main room, while house music can be be heard playing on the patio. Also, bottle service is more affordable than most other high end clubs at this establishment. As the only Vegas nightclub with rooftop gardens, Chateau more of a lounge experience rather than a nightclub.
4. Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan:
Cosmopolitan offers you a monumental 60,000 square foot venue that transitions night club patrons between lavish rooms and various musical experiences. While the main room will usually play house music or EDM, the downstairs room known as the "Boom Box room" will play straight hip-hop and R&B. The hip-hop room is small, but they keep the hits, both new and old, in rotation. Ladies, make sure to bring your folding flats with you because after dancing all night to the beats of all your favs, climbing those steps to the exit will not be easy ... you can thank me later!
5. TAO Nightclub at the Venetian:
This complex is a multi-story "Asian City" and houses a restaurant, banquet facilities, lounge, nightclub, and beachclub in 60,000 square feet. This nightclub features top DJ's such as Snoop Dogg and Jermaine Dupri, and creative programming. The main room plays a mix of top hits and hip-hop while the Opium Room down the hallway is catered more towards those who appreciate hip-hop music. Bottle service is almost a must in this room due to the spacing of the dancefloor and seating, but keep in mind the standing space can be limited. I definitely recommend visiting this side room for a night to remember.
