Just like the casinos and shows, Las Vegas nightlife goes from dusk to dawn and keeps the party bumping and the drinks flowing non-stop. From chic celebrity-spotting stakeouts to chill Las Vegas bars, Sin City always delivers.

In terms of nightclubs, a trip to Pure, the 36,000-square-foot club inside Caesar’s Palace, is just about mandatory. Pure is chic, packed, loud, expensive, seemingly irresistible to celebrities, and even offers a postcard view of the Strip. This bright, white-walled nightclub was voted the Las Vegas Mega-Club of the Year in 2011 by the Nightclub & Bar Awards. E! Entertainment named it the Number One Club in the U.S..

If Pure sounds a little too intense, there are many Las Vegas bars that offer a more casual environment. One of the most distinctive is Frankie's Tiki Room, a short trip from the Strip at 1712 West Charleston. Branding itself as “south seas exotica and modern primitivism” with a shot of “Las Vegas kitsch,” its caricature island warrior statues gape and stare as patrons order from a long list of cocktails, each served in a Tiki mug guests can take home with them for $23. Frankie's Tiki Room is cozy, cheerful, tacky, tight, and inviting.

For guests who would prefer to sit and sip, pubs don't get much better than The Pub at Monte Carlo. The Pub has a separate menu for the more than 300 beers they serve. The Pub also offers 35 television screens, a long bar, a full menu of food, and a challenge that few patrons can accept: eat an eight-pound hamburger in half an hour and receive it for free, along with a souvenir shirt.

With Las Vegas nightlife running the gamut from trendy to kitschy to sporty, every party animal will find the perfect habitat. Finding their way back home after is another matter.
