The weather is heating up and Memorial Day weekend traditionally serves as the kickoff for the summer party season. Sin City will be busy day and night, so expect the top clubs on the Strip to be packed. Check out where to find the best parties throughout the weekend.
Omina promises to offer a lineup of big-name DJs all weekend long. Calvin Harris was host his regular Friday night residency (May 25) while Zedd hits the stage on Saturday (May 26). Martin Garrix returns Sunday to perform hits like "Animals" and "Don't Look Down."
Memorial Day weekend isn't complete without a visit by the pool. Wet Republic will be throwing some of the biggest daytime parties in Vegas with headliners like Tiesto and Armin Van Buuren providing the music.
Jewel will celebrate two years in Las Vegas. On May 26, the nightclub will throw a second anniversary bash with hip-hop star Lil Uzi Vert. Book one of five themed private VIP suites for the occasion.
The Wynn and Encore sister properties always have a loaded lineup at their clubs — and Memorial Day Weekend is no exception. Check out chart-toppers like The Chainsmokers twice (at XS May 25 and Encore Beach Club May 28), Afrojack at Intrigue (May 26) and David Guetta at Encore Beach Club (May 27). However the most fun could be during Nightswim, the late-night pool party hosting Marshmello (May 25), Major Lazer (May 26) and Galantis (May 27) at EBC. Don't forget your bathing suit.
With incredible views from the rooftop of the Cromwell, Drai's has some of the best scenery in the heart of the Strip. Headliners include hip-hop stars like Future, 2 Chainz and Migos. If you just want to hang out by the pool, stop by on Saturday for Rae Sremmurd (May 26) or Sunday (May 27) when Trey Songz teams up with the Jersey Shore's DJ Pauly D for a poolside party at Drai's Beachclub.
It's never too early to plan an action-packed Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas. Call VegasGiant at 702-476-0001 for even more suggestions on how to enjoy the holiday at the clubs.
