Last year Hakkasan Las Vegas catapulted its way into the Top 100 Clubs chart at number 10, making an extraordinary highest new entry debut. This year the five-level culinary and nightlife mecca tells nightclubs across the globe to put their music (and money) where their mouth is as they slide into third. Touted by millennials as “the most buzzed-about music venue” on social media, Hakkasan attracts both celeb and EDM glitterati, playing venue of choice for Tiësto, Calvin Harris, Afrojack and Hardwell, who held his celebratory event at the extravagant haunt after being crowned No. 1 DJ, twice.

“Combining our nightlife and entertainment expertise with such a reputable name in the culinary world has produced a venue that will provide an unforgettable experience for all who visit Hakkasan Las Vegas,” said Neil Moffitt, CEO of Hakkasan Group when it first opened in April of 2013.

Turns out he was correct. Comprised by myriad atmospheres, including the restaurant, private dining room and various club levels, its progressive design is the next iteration of the brand’s distinctive aesthetic: a contemporary vision inspired by classic Chinoiserie, re-imagined for Las Vegas. The space is specifically designed for evenings that progress as the ambience gradually transforms, energized by a vibrancy that builds and inspires guests to move almost by force upstairs, where new nightlife elements are revealed.

Starting things off on the third floor with the 10,000-square-foot Ling Ling Lounge for attendees who fancy a more intimate and relaxed experience, it’s the fourth floor where shit kicks into high-octane mega club madness. VIP booths often filled with the likes of Pharrell, Jennifer Lopez, Jay-Z, Pink and bottle-popping bigwigs surround the dancefloor and custom DJ booth, all enveloped by floor to ceiling LED screens.

Operating as an extension of the main nightclub or individually depending on the night, the Garden Bar — an Oriental themed pavilion — is equipped with its own DJ booth. The amphitheatre-style setting boasts a two-storey water feature and lush, life-like foliage. It doesn’t end there. Finally, we come to a mezzanine on the fifth level elevated above the main nightclub, providing an area for guests who desire a more private, VIP environment while still having access to the energy of the dancefloor.

Hakkasan is strictly high-end so don’t forget your black card for the club going for gold. The only question is, will they slide into home next year at Number 1?
