On a typical Saturday night in Las Vegas, megaclubs on the Strip are bursting at the seams. Patrons wait for hours in line to pay escalating cover charges and empty their wallets on one drink at the bar. But those looking to hear some sexy house music without blowing their budget on a cover charge (or who want to avoid being crushed by the crowds) make the trip north to 516 E. Fremont St. for Vanguard Lounge. Talented local DJs keep it real and give those club hits a rest in the intimate space with a casual vibe and strong signature libations. Definitely a place to take a break from the typical, where the plastic party people thankfully don’t dare to roam.
