You can be party rockin' in style at Marquee.

If it’s electronic music you’re looking for in a club, congratulations: You won’t have to look far or for very long. The near ubiquity of electronic music right now guarantees that EDM aficionados can almost walk into any club and hear something they like most nights, but if you want to party with the best electronic DJs, take note of these nights:

At Ghostbar at the Palms, Sundays see rotating resident DJs Zen Freeman, Brandon Kent, DJ M!KEATTACK and occasional guest DJs playing house music all night. If you can’t make it on Sunday, over at Ghostbar’s sister-club, Moon, Tuesday’s Bang! Industry night sees the same set of DJs spinning some house as well.

Rounding out the Palms’ club selection, Friday nights at Rain sees “Clash,” with international special guest DJs playing electro, house and more.

At The Bank, on Thursdays you’ve got DJ IKON spinning his electronic dance music selections and on Karma Saturdays, DJ Karma spins the best international dance music.

Over at Haze, you’ve got “In The House” on Fridays and “Haze Saturdays” with plenty of dance music, special guest electronic DJs and occasional live performances.

Marquee’s “Party Rock Mondays,” headlined by resident DJ Redfoo from LMFAO, will have you dressed in your best party rock gear and dancing into the early hours of the morning. Keep an eye out for this once-a-month party.


Lavo hosts "Vice Sunday" with regular hip-hop and mash-up set lists.


Even if EDM isn’t your cup of tea, no worries. Vegas clubs haven’t forgotten to keep the best hip-hop tracks in rotation. If you want to fill the night with nothing but the best hip-hop, these are your best choices:

“Vice Sunday” at Lavo features DJ Vice spinning the best hip-hop with a dose of mash-ups.

At Crown, “Sinful Saturday,” sees some hip-hop and R&B thanks to Hot 97.5 resident DJ Dre Dae. With a name like that, you know he’s good.

Wednesday nights at Ghostbar, DJ M!KEATTACK and Dave Fogg spin classic hip-hop, mash-ups, indie and Top 40.

Resident DJ Nick Cannon spins hip-hop at Chateau on his scheduled appearances, and Surrender very regularly schedules guest DJs with hip-hop sets, or even some of your favorite hip-hop artists to DJ for the night.

Latin Music:

Latin music has a home in Vegas too, with a selection of Latin-themed dance nights. At the Rio, you can catch some salsa music Monday nights at VooDoo Lounge, or Latin Libido Night Wednesdays at Crown. Over at the Town Square mall, “Noches Azul Latin Thursdays,” at Blue Martini and “Latin Miami Friday” at Nu Sanctuary keep the beat going well into the after-hours.

Retro sounds:

Last, but not least, there are the places that play homage to the greats from decades past. These club theme nights play the most memorable hits from yesteryear:

“Solid Gold Sundays,” at VooDoo Lounge is an ’80s night inside, with mash-ups on the outside balcony.

Lavo’s “Old School Wednesdays” features special guests and performances from the ’90s and ’80s.

Likewise, Flashback Thursdays at Crown focuses on old-school hits with occasional special guest DJs from the ’80s and ’90s.

Also on Thursdays, just down The Strip at Haze, “Step Into the ’90s” industry night features occasional special performances and guests with a focus on ’90s hits.
