Las Vegas is one of the biggest party cities in the world, and a perfect destination for a really exciting and special New Years Eve. You will never be bored as there are plenty of things to do, from visiting the casinos and dining out, to going to see one of the big Christmas shows, and there are also lots of special New Years Eve parties including the famous street party which takes place on the main strip, which is closed to traffic for the night. The firework extravaganza that takes place at midnight at New Year is typically over the top and mind blowing, and you can see it from almost anywhere in the city, but whilst you are out and about having fun remember to keep things in line as the Las Vega city police maintain a large visible presence on New Years Eve, and are not known for their sense of humour!
Some of the main places to be this year include:
* Lax Nightclub’s New Year’s Eve Bash at the Luxor Hotel and Casino – Lax nightclubs are famous for their extravagant parties and New Years Eve is no exception. This year tickets at the Luxor event are starting at $150 just to get in the door, with tables plus service going as high as $5,000 for the VIP treatment. You can be guaranteed a wild night out though with celebrity host Kim Kardashian helping you to ring in the New Year.
* TAO with Carmen Electra at the Venetian Hotel Las Vegas – this years TAO New years party is hosted by Carmen Electra, and prices start at $150 on the door. For the full VIP package you can get table service, cocktails and champagne, Sushi and hors d’oeuvres and also entrance to LAVO, the famous nightclub at The Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino after midnight.
* New Years 007 Party at the Mirage Hotel Las Vegas – this James Bond themed party at the Mirage’s own nightclub Jet is one of the parties of the year and prices start at $200 for entry, and $2500 for a full table service package. Jet can get very busy on New Years Eve, so booking a table can be the only way to hang on to a bit of space, and service means you don’t have to queue for hours at the bar waiting for a drink.
Las Vegas gets incredibly busy around Christmas and New Year, so make sure you book all your flights, hotels and party plans well in advance. There are also some great deals on throughout the winter period, so make sure you check out all the hotel websites to find out all the great savings on accommodation and entertainment. For example The Mandalay Bay Hotel has some special mid winter rates from just $70 for a standard room, and you can also get a special ‘Exotic Escape Offer’, which provides you with an upgrade to a luxury suite and also a two for one deal on tickets to their top show ‘Mama Mia’.
