Best Female DJ

Lisa Pittman


Actually, from Marquee’s Boombox Room to the Dayclub, longtime Las Vegan Lisa Pittman is one of the best DJs in town, period. From Pittman’s first residency at Studio 54 in 2006 to her ongoing success with the Palms and Tao Group, DJLP has kept a steady hand on the decks. She seamlessly crosses over from mainstream hot spots to occasionally throw the best LGBT parties around. Her friends call her the Lesbian Mayor of Las Vegas for producing events such as SHEdonism, a ladies-only party weekend that will take over the Palms’ entire Fantasy on September 5–9. She’s also a champion of nightlife’s nonsmoking movement and will soon announce her forthcoming smoke-free party for LGBT women.
