Seven More Nights

Your city after dark

Thu 27

Las Vegas loves throwing parties to commemorate future parties, such as halfway to Halloween or Christmas in July. Tao Group and Insomniac Events are marking another midpoint milestone with Halfway to Electric Daisy Carnival parties all weekend. Sure it may seem a bit in advance to talk about, but if you’re like us, you’ve already busted out the hot glue gun and sewing machine to start painstakingly handcrafting three nights’ worth of unique outfits. Get a taste of the EDC spirit at Tao with a special set from Dutch DJ/producer Hardwell. (In the Venetian, 10 p.m.,

It’s the moment we’ve been waiting all year for! Well, more like since November, when it was announced that our beloved Body English would be reopening. And as if they read our minds (or Tweets), they’re mixing things up. Deep Dish’s Sharam kicks things off tonight. But wait, that’s only the start for what Body English has in store: Saturday welcomes a DJ set from French import M83, plus the first performance from Las Vegas’ own Black Boots (who recently debuted on Ultra Records), along with Richard Beynon and Teenwolf. Add to that Switch, Drop the Lime, Mr. White and Destructo on Sunday. If they keep bookings like this up, you’ll know where to find us in 2013. (In the Hard Rock Hotel, 10 p.m., Also on the premier front, upscale supper-to-nightclub Andrea’s celebrates its grand opening this evening and offers an Asian-ish menu. Swedish superstar DJ/producer Steve Angello serves as the “musical chef,” providing freshly prepared playlists promised to satisfy diners’ aural palates via the hands of guest DJs spinning from 11 p.m. until 2 a.m. (In Encore, SHe by Morton’s, the female-centric dining/fashion/nightlife venue, celebrates its grand opening New Year’s Eve, but you can get a first peek tonight while dancing to the sounds of DJ Five.

Not only should you toast the New Year this weekend, but also take a moment to raise a glass in honor of Rain. This weekend marks the last official one for the megaclub and includes a special performance tonight from singer Kelly Rowland. (In the Palms, 10 p.m., Imposters in bow ties and sunglasses step aside, the real Psy is in the house at Pure.

There’s no way we could have fit all the New Year’s Eve madness in this little space, so click here for the guide on where to party. But a few more suggestions that we couldn’t squeeze in include keeping it casual and chilling with the Insert Coin(s) crew, DJ 88 and the rest of the residents for a block party-style evening downtown. (521 E. Fremont St., 10 p.m., For a unique—and somewhat disturbing—New Year’s Eve experience, join the ghouls at Eli Roth’s Goretorium for a bloodthirsty Vampire Masquerade in the attraction’s Baby Dolls lounge overlooking Strip.

So, you blew all your money on New Year’s Eve and you’ve got a wicked hangover. Thankfully, our Nickel F—ing Beer Night buddies will help you out with a Hair o’ the Dog Edition. And if you don’t know what to do with those rogue presents from grandma, rewrap them and bring ’em along for the Sh*tty Gift Exchange, too, and let the hilarity ensue. (At Beauty Bar, 10 p.m.,

Wed 2

Come party with us tonight and we won’t take “I’m still tired from NYE” as an excuse. The official Vegas Seven 2012 Nightclub Awards Party celebrating this issue takes place tonight at The Act, and darn near anyone who’s anyone will be there. It’s kind of a big deal.
