All work and no play makes Jack (or Jill) a dull boy (or girl). Las Vegas entertains like no other, and New Year’s Eve is no exception. The Strip fills with revelers. Fireworks light up the sky. The hotels and casinos are packed with people and A-list entertainers. Live entertainment is an every-night affair with top artists in music, comedy, television, and stage, but New Year’s Eve raises the bar every year. No one parties like Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve. Consider your early visit to Vegas as a scouting adventure to see what Sin City has to offer.

But just in case New Year’s Eve is too early for you to get your party on Vegas-style, here’s a list of some Las Vegas night life you should make time for after a long day at ALA 2014:

Nightclubs (please note that dress code is strictly enforced.):
• XS at Encore
• Tryst at Wynn
• Hakkasan at MGM
• The Bank at Bellagio
• Marquee at Cosmopolitan

Upscale Lounges/Bars (please note that dress code is strictly enforced.):
• Gold Lounge at Aria
• Lily at Bellagio
• Ghostbar at Palms
• Chandelier at Cosmopolitan

Wait, nightclubs and swanky bars aren’t your style? Try these off-the-beaten-path bars and dive bars:
• The Griffin
• Commonwealth
• Insert Coin
• Park on Fremont
• The Double Down (dive)
• Ellis Island – for Karaoke (dive)
• Stoney’s Rockin’ Country Bar – Town Square (country dance hall)

This list is only a sampling of what Las Vegas has to offer once the sun goes down. Share your favorite Vegas hot spots for future conference goers in the comments below, and check out the YALSA at ALA’s 2014 Annual Conference wiki for more ideas.
