The Total Package


Of course, any nightclub can be made to look enticing in those glamorous press photos you see on the websites—empty of any actual patrons, free of bottle-service clutter and shot long before any drunken bachelorette has ever swung from the proffered poles. Surrender, by contrast, is a beautiful canvas that actually gets better with the addition of beautiful people. The serpentine art installation above the bar is mirrored in the way the VIP section winds its way through the heart of the space, inevitably leading to the discovery of Surrender’s trump card: Encore Beach Club, which at night folds nicely into Surrender’s embrace. The 60,000-square-foot party pool complex makes Surrender the largest indoor/outdoor experience on the Strip. If you can top that, we assume your nightclub can be seen from space, yes?

The Cosmopolitan reminds us of the Hard Rock Hotel of the 1990s: From the moment you arrive, you know something good is going to happen. A fantastic live music roster (much of it free) feeds a sceney restaurant collection, and a top-shelf cocktail program is administered property-wide. Sure, it’s stylish and sexy, but also authentically beautiful in spots (Chandelier Bar, anyone?). Fun like this isn’t free (cocktails range from $10-$14), but you can still scarf a slice and a well drink for less than $20.
