22 Places You’ll Go in Las Vegas After Dark

For the vaxxed and masked that still want to party, there’s no shortage of places to go

Las Vegas is in recovery mode this weekend. It was a big time New Year’s Eve, but with all the parties came the inevitable hangovers and the even more inevitable Omicron.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see the lines at testing sites are longer than those to get into the clubs over the next four nights, but for the vaxxed and masked that still want to party, there’s no shortage of places to go, even if we’re in that weird “just turned 2022” period where things are a little more toned-down while we get ready for Chinese New Year and the Super Bowl.

Here are the places you’ll go this weekend:

Thursday, January 6

DANCE: The CES crowds are smaller again this year, but that could mean an easier time getting into Hakkasan Nightclub, where resident headliner and Vegas hero Steve Aoki is back behind the decks for CES Week. 10:30 p.m., $30-$50, hakkasangroup.com

And “Greedy Greedy” artist Kuromi takes her turn at Resorts World’s Zouk Nightclub, which just happens to be right across the Strip from the Las Vegas Convention Center. How about that? 10:30 p.m., $30-$50, zoukgrouplv.com
