Nightlife trends are shifting in Las Vegas. http://bit.ly/2LblwCY

* Las Vegas is known for many things: its iconic neon signs, endless rows of slot machines and its nightlife, to name a few.

The city has earned the moniker “nightclub capital of the world” to some, but experts in the nightlife industry say trends are changing, and the days of new mega-clubs opening every year are over. Instead, visitors are looking for more intimate experiences, with many shifting toward smaller lounges.

“Vegas has definitely hit the saturation point with nightclubs,” said Noah Tepperberg, co-founder of Tao Group. “A lot of what’s coming online seems to be smaller venues.” http://bit.ly/2LblwCY

This started in NY several years ago. Living rooms, bedrooms, man caves.

I'm definitely more likely to hit up a lounge or small bar than a night club. Even when I was in my 20's I thought night clubs sucked.

Usually when I'm Vegas I'm in bed by 10 or 11 anyway so it's kind of a moot point.

I grew up in my teens around lounge singers and small venues with live music, from piano bars to trios to 5-7 piece bands. So I greatly prefer small venues to big nightclubs, and live music to dj's unless the band is horrible at the covers they do.

However, the whole trend has been towards making the music louder and louder, regardless of the source. I don't know why they do that. The point of a smaller venue is a more intimate experience, so why blast people? It just gives me headaches and reason not to return.

There's nothing wrong with a band in one corner of a casino not being heard in another, or acting as background music while you're playing at a table in the middle. Or a small interior nightclub leaving the door open so the music can be heard on the floor.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I finally did the silent disco thing the other night. It was a lot of fun from a spectator point of view. There were six different tunes people could be hearing so it was interesting trying to find the folks listening to the same.groove.

I not only never liked big, loud clubs but really cannot understand the appeal at all. So loud you have to scream to even hear someone, drinks overpriced by a factor of 3-4, can't move around, and pay a huge cover charge.

Give me a crooner in a quiet lounge. Though what I like would never be able to be done profitably. What I would really like is like the scene in "Casino" where there is a crooner singing "Stardust" or something in a relaxed lounge.

Yeah, I know I am way old of mind.

I’m not a huge fan of Nightclubs but last time I was in Vegas (a few years ago), I went to OMNIA at Caesar’s Palace.

Someone I met at the Flamingo pool worked there and gave me 4 VIP passes, I would never have gone otherwise because it would be a miserable experience without them. I think the cover would have been something like $50 for men and $25. Full on discrimination, I wonder if I could just claim to identify as a female and pay the lower cover.

Anyway, I got there prior to the club opening and the regular entrance line was so long that it extended outside and nearly on to the strip. They allowed the VIP line in first and I barely had to wait.

We got in first to an empty venue, which was enormous. I think there were 3 levels with different themed rooms that were very well decorated. Drinks were $16. Within an hour or two the club started to fill up and you were basically shoulder to shoulder with everyone, so we got out of there. As we were leaving the club was apparently at capacity, they were only allowing people in as others left, but the line was still wrapped around the block.

I don’t understand why people put up with the lines, crowds, and high cover/drink costs in these places. It would be a miserable experience without bottle service or some type of VIP pass.

I think it is a personality thing, some people just want to be where they think the action is. General house arrest had me looking for new things on Netflix so I watched a documentary on Studio 54. The glory days of the place lasted barely 3 years but during them it took pull and luck to get "chosen" to be allowed to enter. Just being in line did not cut it, you had to have a certain look and vibe.

I always hated nightclubs and I think the type of person on this board hates them. But some people just love the crowd, love being in the action. To them that is why they came to Vegas.

I say make a good sports bet with that $50 cover.

You just responded to a spam bot. Nobody was at a club just the other night.

Las Vegas is a city of hope and nightlife. I doubt that this city is intended for relaxation and tranquility. I often find new places that make me give off adrenaline, which manifests itself in the direction of the game and club life.

I got to give you credit. You are patient and the best of the bunch. 8 to go.

It's interesting to see how the nightlife scene in Las Vegas is shifting. I can totally understand why people might be looking for more intimate experiences rather than just going to big mega-clubs. It's cool to see that smaller lounges are becoming more popular.

It's pretty easy to make a lot of money following trends. A good bar owner gives the people what they like, but great ones tell them what they like.

I can't really see why anyone over the age of 22 would like the mega-clubs. Too loud, too crowded, too expensive. But yet they have lines of people wanting to get in.

It's cool to see that smaller lounges are becoming more popular. It's similar trend happening in South Korea too, where venues like [Link redacted -- mod] are also offering more unique and personal experience. I'm sure that there are still plenty of great options for a night out in Vegas, and it's always exciting to see how the scene evolves in different parts of the world.
