OMNIA Leads Las Vegas Rankings on DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs List

MGM Grand staple Hakkasan Nightclub also landed on the list

By Jason R. Latham

In Las Vegas, we like to think that we’re living in the center of the universe. Every now and then along comes a reminder of just how big the world really is. 

DJ Mag released its 2021 list of Top 100 Clubs on Tuesday, and the Entertainment Capitol of the World didn’t even crack the Top 20. Really? Are we allowed to demand an audit? What about a recount? Because frankly, we did get No. 1. 

Except that’s not true. Las Vegas didn’t get a mention until No. 21, with OMNIA at Caesars Palace moving up nine spots to become the city’s only entry in the Top 30. The ranking feels unjust but let’s maintain some perspective and remember that we’re talking about the top 100 clubs in the world. Just imagine how many joints would give out free bottle service for a year just to be on the list. 

With that in mind, Las Vegas didn’t do too badly, especially when you factor in the long pandemic layoff. MGM Grand staple Hakkasan Nightclub (now part of TAO Group Hospitality) landed at No. 39 on DJ Mag’s list, followed by The Cosmopolitan’s Marquee Las Vegas at No. 40.

Echostage, a 30,000-square-foot megaclub in Washington, D.C.,took the No. 1 spot in this year’s rankings. The “warehouse-inspired space” has hosted, among others, Black Coffee, Claude VonStroke, Armin van Buuren, and Eric Prydz – all names familiar to Las Vegas clubgoers.

Notably, one familiar name that shows up on the list is Singapore’s Zouk Group, which recently expanded into Las Vegas with its takeover of day and nightlife at Resorts World Las Vegas. The company’s Ayu Dayclub premiered over the summer, and it just announced a September 17-18 opening weekend for its flagship Las Vegas club, Zouk Nightclub, featuring performances by Tiësto and Becky G.

DJ Mag’s Top 100 list is voted on by London-based outlet’s readership.
