Thursday, Jan. 16

“Barely there” is always an apt way to describe nightclub ensembles, but thanks to AVN, the odds are favoring skin to fabric all the more. 1 Oak embraces the trend for tonight’s edition of A la Mode Thursdays, bringing in adult actress Tera Patrick for a burlesque performance. DJ M!ke Attack is also on the bill, but he is not—at least as of press time—expected to shimmy out of his trousers. (In The Mirage, 10:30 p.m., 1OakLasVegas.com.)

Friday, Jan. 17

What’s classier than a white party? The answer to that question might be the second annual Adult Star White Party at Body English. It might not, but you never know unless you go. (In Hard Rock Hotel, 10:30 p.m., BodyEnglish.com.) Elsewhere in the land of AVN, VividTV and VividRadio host the night at The Bank with actresses Brandy Aniston and Ash Hollywood. Hey, didn’t you go to high school with Ash Hollywood? Shoulda known… (In Bellagio, 10:30 p.m., TheBankLasVegas.com.) Lastly, if you’re looking for a night out with a little more manpower (and clothing), Tao has the always-dapper Jerzy on deck. (In the Venetian, 10 p.m., TaoLasVegas.com.)

Saturday, Jan. 18

We hear there’s some pretty stiff competition at tonight’s AVN Awards, taking place in The Joint. (In Hard Rock Hotel, 9 p.m., HardRockHotel.com.) After you find out who takes home the trophies for Best Art Direction and Best Cinematography—the ceremony’s most hotly-contested categories, obviously—stop by Vanity, which opens up for the official AVN Awards After-Party. (In Hard Rock Hotel, 10:30 p.m.) At Haze, adult stars Teagan Presley and Alexis Texas host the Adam & Eve Award Show After-Party while DJ Pauly D gets TurntUp on the turntables. (In Aria, 10:30 p.m., HazeLasVegas.com.) Now in addition to giving us AVN, this month has blown the winds of change through many nightclubs’ resident DJ rosters. One example: Tommy Trash tossed his locks around Hakkasan last year, but you can spot the Aussie at XS tonight. (In Encore, 10 p.m., XSLasVegas.com.)

Sunday, Jan. 19

Light switches on Exposure, a new LGBT event that will satisfy anyone’s artistic yearnings. The evening is broken into three epic “chapters” that include live painting and short film screenings, DJ sets by Dave Audé, Wayne G and Joe Gauthreaux. (In Mandalay Bay, 10 p.m., TheLightVegas.com.) In case you missed the Facebook alert, get hip to the fact that both Calvin Harris and Tiësto celebrated their birthdays on Friday—twinning! Tiësto turned 45 and Harris rang in the big 30. But tonight, it’s all about another DJ duo as Mim and Liv—better known as Nervo—spin at Hakkasan. (In MGM Grand, 10 p.m., HakkasanLV.com.)

Monday, Jan. 20

DJ Vice and vocalist Mike Taylor name drop a barrage of cities in the lyrics of their Billboard hit “World Is Our Playground,” but tonight Vice returns to us again for his first Marquee appearance of 2014. (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m., MarqueeLasVegas.com.)

Tuesday, Jan. 21

Hallelujah for Hyde! The lounge gets you gracefully through the Tuesday party slump with its Lost Angels Industry Night, during which DJ Konflikt provides the tunes. (In Bellagio, 10:30 p.m., HydeBellagio.com.) At Moon, residents Alie Layus and Presto One share DJ duties. (In The Palms, 10:30 p.m., Palms.com.)

Wednesday, Jan. 22

Ghostbar always caters to the ladies on Wednesdays with free entry until midnight and complimentary rosé Champagne from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. Tonight, the club sweetens the deal with a gifting suite from LASplash Cosmetics. (In the Palms, 8 p.m.) DJ Snake slithers into Surrender for the first date of his Slippery When Wet residency. Whether you like it or not, the French producer has already slipped a few songs into your head lately: He’s the man behind the trap-tastic “Turn Down for What” with Lil Jon, and Lady Gaga’s ’80s inspired “Do What U Want” featuring R. Kelly. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m., SurrenderNightclub.com.)
