The ultimate guide to Las Vegas Strip nightclubs — PHOTOS

It’s the weekend, and we know you’ve got better things to do than scour the Internet, Googling what to wear to the club, how much cash to bring to get in, where you can hear the hottest DJs or how to get a flaming bottle of champagne delivered to your table — just to have your Monday newsfeeds crammed with targeted marketing ads. So here’s everything you need to know if you’re here for the party, hosting your friends from back home or interested in finding out what’s really going on where all of those bright lights come together to form the skyline you see everyday, but never venture toward.
