Once upon a not-too-distant time, Tom Jones back-to-back with Shirley Bassey was about as good as it got in the clubs of Las Vegas. Today, however, it's the choice destination for EDM's biggest stars as well as trance legends reviving their careers, a discovery as coveted as Ibiza in the eyes of Paul Oakenfold, who enjoyed a residency at Rain until recently.
At the heart of it all is Surrender and its connecting outside pool party area, Encore Beach Club.
Part of the same complex that houses incomprehensibly large basement venue XS (ranked at 45), it's the place EDM titans return for an encore again and again. Surrender/Encore Beach Club are an instant shoe-in to this poll, budging only a place since last year.
