When a Vegas club has been open for 13 years, you know their doing something right and that’s certainly the case with Tao Las Vegas and hip hop. If you’re looking for one of the top hip hop clubs in Las Vegas, you’ve found it. Megastars like Snoop Dog and Jermaine Dupri are just part of the creative program of this 60,000 square feet, three story “Asian-like City.”
Which houses a restaurant, banquet facilities, ample dancefloor, hip hop lounge, nightclub, and beach. While the main room plays a mix of top 40, EDM and hip hop, the Opium Room caters to those who crave the best hip hop club in Vegas.
Since you’ll rarely hear EDM here, Light qualifies as one of the top hip hop clubs in Vegas. Previously owned by the Hakkasan Group, Play management took over and took the club to a new level with a spectacular schedule of live hip hop performances including such A-list performers as Ludacris, Metro Boomin, T-Pain, Tyga, Rick Ross, and J Cole to name a few. But they didn’t stop at a great hip hop roster. Light boasts some of the best lighting, sound and production on The Strip with what is without question the most prominent LED screen in all of Sin City. What’s more, just about every table at this multi-tiered club has a fabulous view of the acrobats dancing across the ceiling ala Cirque du Soleil to what else but hip hop music.
Chateau located at the Paris Hotel & Casino does hip hop Europen-style. Ascend the spiral staircase to Chateau’s second-floor entrance and take in intricate old world charm combined with sleek modern French design. The focal point of Chateau (besides the panoramic view of The Strip and the spectacular Bellagio fountains from the lavish, 22,000 square foot rooftop gardens and the faux Statue of Liberty) is the centrally located DJ booth elevated 10 feet above a marble fireplace. Naturally, Chateau boasts an A-list roster of hip hop and R&B artists. See and be seen (dancing mostly) in this unique hip hop club with VIP tables surrounding the dance floor. Vaulted ceilings, state-of-the-art, high-energy lighting, booming sound system, ornate chandeliers, and a location high above the Vegas skyline make Chateau the venue not to be missed.
Wildly popular in LA and NY, 1 OAK Las Vegas is without question one of the best hip hop clubs in Vegas playing a mix of hip hop and top 40. If you don’t know, 1OAK stands for one of a kind and that it is. Because of it’s smaller size, it offers a moodier, darker feel than the mega-clubs on The Strip. The club has garnered a lot of press recently due to the celebrities who hang out here as well as the Kardashians holding several birthday bashes on premises. Located inside the Mirage, you can expect live performances from Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Juicy J, J. Cole and Fabolous. 1OAK offers a view unlike any other hip hop club: dancers perform on stripper poles on top of VIP tables which provides far more than a tantalizing sight.
Look! Up in the sky — it’s a bumping hip hop nightclub called Apex Social Club.
Located on the 55th floor of the Palms Resort and Casino, this is one of the hottest hip hop clubs in Las Vegas. Besides a top-notch roster of local and national musical talent, the Apex Social Club also offers a 360-degree view of Sin City thanks to its outdoor patio of which 8,000 square feet becomes an open-air social club. Four one-of-a-kind sculptures act as focal points within the main room and create a sophisticated, artsy vibe. Bartenders and mixologists painstakingly craft some of the most exceptional cocktails in any of the hip hop lounges in Las Vegas and serve them over a graphite and genuine sapphire bar. Between the ambiance, the music, the dance floor, the talent and the view, you’ve never seen Las Vegas like this before.
As if Hakkasan Las Vegas wasn’t enough of a nightclub to satisfy your craving to party, it also boasts one of the best hip hop clubs in Las Vegas: the Ling Ling Club. It’s a club within a club. Keep in mind that Hakkasan located inside the MGM Grand is so large and intricate that navigating your way to the Ling Ling Club can take some doing, so pay attention.
When you arrive, you’ll find some serious dancing going on here probably because they play more of the radio hip hop than the off-market beats. Whatever the case, the place is always packed. Maybe that’s a function of its small size or perhaps it’s because of the tunes they spin, the bottom line is the energy is off the charts. While most EDM clubs invest heavily in lighting as part of the production, most Vegas hip hop clubs do not. The Ling Ling Club is an exception. The lighting moves with the music, and the ceiling is its ultimate canvas.
Heart of Omnia located in the Omnia Nightclub which is located in Caesar’s Palace may seem like a hassle to get to, but as top Vegas hip hop clubs go, it’s worth it. Without question, Heart of Omnia throws down some of the most banging parties of any hip hop club in Sin City. The Heart plays both radio and underground hip hop as well as some top 40. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes because you will be dancing.
Naturally, the hottest parties always draw the biggest crowds, and the Heart is no exception. This may be because Omnia Las Vegas is one of the newest clubs on The Strip and one of the most popular thanks in part to the mega-star DJs they attract. Be sure to get your pic taken in the on-premises photo booth. After all, there’s nothing like a buzzed photo, right?
What’s more, since the Heart isn’t the main attraction at Omnia Nightclub, you can score some decent prices on bottle service. Additionally, dance floor tables in the Heart are much more affordable than those in the main room. And finally, all the tables are on the dance floor at the Heart so you’ll always be right up in the action. That’s why it is one of the best hip hop clubs in Vegas.
The Marquee Las Vegas located at the Cosmopolitan is a massive 60,000 square foot space that moves patrons between multiple luxurious rooms and different musical experiences. The Boom Box Room is one of those rooms. While the main room almost always features EDM, the smaller Boom Box Room plays solely hip hop and R&B.
Enter the Boombox and take in the 360-degree bar surrounded by VIP tables adjacent to the bangin’ dance floor. Yes, conditions are tight, but that only adds to the vibe. Considered one of the best hip hop clubs in 2017, if you love to dance, the Boom Box Room will blow your mind and probably hurt your feet.
