Okay so I have been to my share of nightclubs in Las Vegas, but I think XS Nightclub at the Encore Hotel takes the cake.  In fact, the moment we stepped into the club, we were wondering why the hell we had never been there before.

From the moment you step into the hotel to the time you walk through the doors, the words “opulence”, “decadence” and “how the hell am I going to not spend a lot of money here” go through your mind.

As always, the folks who designed this club thought of every detail from the decor, to the lighting, to the grand entrance, even to what the super smoking hot female dealers were wearing outside on a chilly November evening.

What you see when you walk into the club.

The square footage of the club is fairly large because they have the inside area and the outside area by the pool.  I didn’t think the place would get too packed, but it did.  As always, the best recommendation would be to get bottle service if you can or if you are on a tight budget, get there early.

And for the crowd?  If you’re single and ready to mingle, there was plenty out there ready to party.

The next time you’re in Vegas, you should definitely check XS out.  Once you do, you’ll be wondering what you need to do to get some extra zeros on your paycheck to go back.
