Or Just Celebrate Your Final Fling. The number of marriage licenses issued takes a big leap in Las Vegas every four years around February. Is it because there are 80 or so wedding chapels, many of which are open twenty-four hours? Is it because you can get a wedding license anytime day or night, any day of the week? Actually, it’s because many couples want their wedding day to be the most unique day on the calendar…February 29th, Leap Day, which only occurs every four years. As many as 125,000 couples are expected to get married in Las Vegas in 2018, more than 300 a day. In fact, better than 3 million couples have tied the knot here, including hundreds of celebrities like Britney Spears, Dennis Rodman, Elvis Presley, Michael Jordan, Frank Sinatra and many others. But the bigger question is this…is Vegas a better wedding location or the better place you go to have your blowout final fling?
It’s THIS winter day that we choose to distinguish from the rest of the days of the year. Super Bowl Sunday! One day a year, Sapphire will open the entire club to zero in on the most important game of the year, and what a party it is! Sapphire has seven huge 20 feet HD screens with HD projectors lining not only the Showroom, but the main floor as well. There isn’t a bad place to watch the game in the entire club. If you and your friends want to party in privacy then just choose one of the ten private skyboxes that the club has to offer. If you got a big party of let say 40 people then you might want to think about reserving the infamous “Karaoke Room” which comes all mic’d up and ready for your official play by play.

What To Do.
As the sun sets across the desert, the once familiar landscape takes on a different light. And, as evening becomes after hours in Vegas, the landscape changes once again. During after hours, celebrities rub elbows with lounge singers, exotic dancers, paid escorts and other hoi polloi on the dance floors along the Strip. The clubs might be unique in concept and appearance, but the goal remains the same – extend that good-time feeling for as long as you can. Here are our favorite hot picks for after-hours fun in Sin City.
The long standing afterhours champion for over 10 years and going is Victor Drai’s world famouse Drai’s. Currently housed in Bally’s while it’s old home The Barberry, er Bills Gamblin Hall goes under renovation. Many a night has ended at this Vegas main stay.
One of the hottest afterhours in the city today is the Artisan Afterhours. This is a who’s who afterhours spot of that Las Vegas service industry. Beats here are pumping well after sunrise. If it’s your birthday month, they give you a nice present of a complimentary bottle. Too tired to go home, then just crash in one of their artist themed rooms.
Rumor Bar & Lounge
Rumor’s afterhours is the newest party on the block. It’s space aged feel will keep you revved and going well into the AM. Just a block off the strip right by The Hard Rock, this after hours venue is close to the beaten path, afterwards grab a room or if it’s Saturday..er..Sunday take a cab across the street to Rehab.
The Peppermill’s Fireside Lounge
Many afterhours club goers will find them selves hungry AND wanting another drink. The best spot for this is by no doubt the Fireside Lounge in The Peppermill. This spot has been here for a VERY LONG time Our favorites here are the bloody marys and chicken wings. This is by far a place for your 4th meal. (…and 10th drink, but who’s counting?)
Sapphire’s Karaoke Room
Don’t want to go home and feeling like a rock star? Then head over to Sapphire Gentleman’s Club and take part in a little-known karaoke party. This state of the art karaoke room has played host to many a rappers late night party. You never know who’ll you’ll end up jiving with at this spot.

There is only one place in Las Vegas that simultaneously puts nude bodies on stage and alcohol in your glass. That’s the venerable Palomino Club in North Las Vegas. The north-south dividing line in the city means different courts, different police units and a different set of rules when it comes to drinking and clubbing. The Palomino is a Vegas holdout from the rough and tumble 60s when the town was just beginning to get its teeth. Don’t look for any pampering here. The women are hard, the patrons are tough and the bouncers take no nonsense. Lap dances run three songs for $100, and a bald, hairy-chested cashier stands ready to take the notes. The drinks they serve have a little punch. Not like you’ll need it. All that red vinyl seating lining the walls gets pretty warm when things get going in this all-night, all-nude clip joint.
Rehab vs. Encore Beach Club
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
4455 Paradise Road, Las Vegas
Encore Las Vegas Hotel and Casino
3131 Las Vegas Blvd., South
The summer pool party scene is shaping up to be the biggest story of the Las Vegas entertainment scene for 2010. Rehab has dominated the daytime wet party world since its introduction with Sunday events that have people lined up in their beach shorts and bikinis hours before the doors open and where securing a cabana means dropping a couple thousand bucks. In Las Vegas, success breeds competition and Steve Wynn is no stranger to spending big to win big. Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub are scheduled to open over Memorial Day weekend. Coming in around 60,000 square feet, the project is said to include about 50,000 square feet for the three-pool Beach Club complex, with 30 private VIP cabanas plus outdoor gaming, around 4,000 square feet for Surrender Nightclub, and another 6,000-8,000 square feet of multiple, climate-controlled decks between the two. Neighboring Switch restaurant will also be drawn into the fold for the now-traditional Vegas ensemble of pool, restaurant and club. The Encore Beach Club deck is expected to remain operational up to 10 months out of the year, thanks to the climate-controlled patios, so nighttime pool parties are a possibility as well. The nightclub is currently slated to open three to four nights a week for starters. Total budget? Well over $70 million reportedly and possibly up to $100 million when all is said and done.
Bobby Flay brings his passion for bold and innovative Southwestern fare straight to the heart of the region that inspired it at Mesa Grill. The desert outpost of the acclaimed New York City Mesa Grill opened to great success in 2004. Bobby developed his signature style of American cookery, marrying the flavors of southwest with his love of grilling at Mesa Grill. Bobby presents dishes like New Mexican Spice Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Bourbon-Ancho Chile Sauce, Sweet Potato Tamale, and Crushed Pecan Butter. In a nod to the West, he also includes a Chiptole Glazed Rib-Eye with Red and Green Chile Sauce. Las Vegas’ proximity to Mexico gives the restaurant access to some of that country’s highest-quality tequila and mezcal offerings, and the expansive wine list has a global reach yet maintains an emphasis on top American wines. The combination of Mesa Grill’s magnificent decor, the exciting vibe of the casino atmosphere and Bobby Flay’s stunning range of textures, flavors and colors incorporated into his menu continue to electrify diners year after year.
Triple George Grill
Seems that, lately, every time you turn around, there’s another good reason to go downtown. The latest case in point is Triple George Grill, located at Third and Ogden streets. Triple George is big on steaks and chops – and, well, big on big portions. The turf part of the menu features premium stakes and pork chops. Triple George is also open for breakfast and lunch, and it’s highly recommended that, at some point, you give every meal a try here. The ambience is comfortable and conducive to conversation, highlighted by tile and wood floors and high-well booths; the main room is dominated by an oval-shaped bar. This is what a downtown grill should feel – and taste – like.
