Seven Nights

Your city after dark

Thu 3

Las Vegas suffers from a perpetual weeklong hangover after New Year’s Eve. We’re still finding confetti in unmentionable places, trying to piece together the evening’s events via a cryptic string of text messages and blurry Instagram pics. The nightlife industry is in recovery mode, too, because tracking down what’s on the post-New Year’s Eve agenda is like arguing with a drunk bachelorette—you just aren’t gonna get very far. Fortunately, there are go-to parties we can always count on, such Worship Thursdays at Tao with DJ Five. (In the Venetian, 10 p.m., If you’re looking for something a bit different to put in your planner, our local EDM radio station, Jelli 96.7, is hosting an 18-and-up Rum & Rebels party. Local DJ duo the BombMakers and Teenwolf provide the tunes; Jelli provides the giveaways at Rum Plantation. (9510 S. Eastern Ave., 10 p.m.,

Sat 5

Sometimes it’s such a pain to get ready to party. But this time, you can just roll out of bed in your PJs and head over to GBDC at Ghostbar for the Jammie Jam! Remember it is winter, so how about you have some fun with the theme and get some flannel footie pajamas instead of the usual go-to passé skanky barely-there lingerie? Try it, you might like it—and be a lot more comfy taking a hit from the beer bong. (In the Palms, 1 p.m., Avicii has his Ralph Lauren flannel shirts. Tiësto has Guess and a whole mess of other endorsements. Now add Nervo to the list of corporate electronic-dance music partnerships, as the fashionable Aussie twin sisters have teamed up with CoverGirl nails, so expect their hands to look extra stylish when flying across the decks. On the music front, they’ve got fresh tunes out with Nicky Romero and Norman Doray that they’ll likely drop during their next XS gig tonight. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m.,

Sun 6

Happy two-year anniversary, Marquee! Joining in the celebration is the Dutch DJ/producer the EDM world is buzzing about, Nicky Romero. His No. 17 spot on DJ Mag’s Top 100 list in 2012 doesn’t hurt the hype for this fresh-face, either. (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m., If 2012 was the year of neon, animal print and tutus, 2013 is the year of the mustache, be it faux or otherwise.

Get your karaoke on at the Ainsworth, where nightlifer Corey Nigrelli is likely to take his shirt off during Coreyoke every Tuesday night. Yeah, buddy. (In the Hard Rock Hotel, 9 p.m., Girls and guys: Apply your eyeliner and channel Meshach Taylor in Mannequin with some far-out retro shades in homage to the U.K.’s John B as he headlines Nickel F—ing Beer Night. Allen Miller, Mr. Hyde and Toffler are also on the docket for the bass-y evening. (At Beauty Bar, 10 p.m., Cash Berlin—er—we mean Dash Berlin and his Twitter drama with Armin van Buuren about playing A State of Trance 600 have subsided, not that it really affected us either way on this side of the pond since he makes the trek through Las Vegas on the regular. Catch the Dutch trance star born Jeff Sutorius next at Lavo. (In the Palazzo, 11 p.m.,
