Now entering its 15th year of operation, XS is still the undeniable King of Clubs. The massive 40,000 square feet space is inspired by the curves of the human body and includes a dance floor, pool, and outdoor patio that even has a gambling area with blackjack and poker. The seating inside is terraced so that no matter where you are, you’ll have a great view.
XS is renowned as one of the most opulent nightclubs in Las Vegas, boasting a lavish interior adorned with gold accents, a grand chandelier, and exquisite outdoor spaces. The club’s reputation for luxury is matched by its 2023 lineup of exceptional artists, featuring renowned DJs such as Kygo, The Chainsmokers, Drake, Alesso, Dillon Francis, and more. The pulsating beats that dominate XS predominantly belong to the EDM genre, ensuring an electrifying experience whether you’re reveling in the open-air sections or catching a glimpse of the headlining DJ on the outdoor LED screen.
Throughout the year, XS hosts a multitude of extraordinary events. During summer, the highlight is XS Nightswim, an extravagant nocturnal pool party where DJs perform outdoors instead of on the traditional dance floor. As autumn arrives, XS presents Art of the Wild, a remarkable three-day affair showcasing esteemed house and techno artists from across the globe. In May, in the lead-up to Electric Daisy Carnival, XS is among the select venues hosting artists as part of the exhilarating EDC week.
On nights featuring popular DJs or special events, the venue tends to reach maximum capacity. It is crucial to secure a hand stamp, either by tipping a bouncer or by opting for bottle service, to ensure uninterrupted access. Failure to do so may result in being unable to re-enter the interior area after leaving.
Although the official dress code is “upscale casual”, you’re unlikely to find anyone not dressed up to look their best, especially on the weekends. Athletic wear is prohibited inside. The exception to the dress code is Las Vegas Nightswim events, where guests are welcome to wear swim attire in order to enjoy the pool.
- If you’re trying to keep costs down, table minimums outside are generally significantly cheaper (except on Sunday nightswim events).
- On nights with top talent, the inside area often reaches capacity and the bouncers stop letting people back in. You’ll need to have a special stamp to get back inside – you can get this stamp via bottle service, or by tipping a bouncer . If it’s starting to get packed and you’re inside without the stamp, we’d recommend staying inside.
- XS has some of the longest lines in Vegas, especially on Chainsmokers nights. We recommend arriving at club opening (or even earlier) if you’re trying to get in on the guest list / tickets / GA on these nights.
- XS is one of the only clubs that does bottle service presentations as you walk into the club. They block off the stairs to showcase the guests entering the club. Of course in order to get this you’ll need to drop some mad cash!
- XS Nightswim is one of the most fun / legendary events in Vegas. It usually happens every sunday during the summer.
- XS has gaming tables outdoor with blackjack and sometimes even craps. However you should note that if the inside is super crowded there’s a chance you won’t be let back inside!
- For ordering drinks, there are two bars in the main room as well as two bars outside.
- XS bathrooms have excellent lighting for selfies.
