Just when you think every nightclub in Las Vegas has turned to electronic house music as its music format, think again! Finding a spot that only plays hip-hop in Sin City is obsolete; however some of the Strip’s top nightclubs, including Chateau, TAO, 1 OAK and Body English, cater to hip-hop lovers needs with the latest and greatest in hip-hop music selections spun by resident and special guest DJs along with exclusive special guest performances from today’s hottest stars.
Even though this off-Strip nightclub was on hiatus for a while, it came back with a redefined look and style. Located in Hard Rock Hotel, the new Body English not only is a club, but has quickly become one of the best afterhours spot in Las Vegas on Friday and Saturday nights. The club has already had performances from premier artists including R. Kelly, Nelly and Sean Kingston and even special guest DJs including Grandmaster Flash, Kid Capri and DJ Whoo Kid. After catching the headlining acts, stay and dance the night (and morning) away to high-energy hip-hop club banger hits so good that you won’t want to leave.
TAO, located in The Venetian, continues to stand strong as it is one of the first upscale nightclubs of its kind on the Strip. Other than the occasional house music DJ appearances, this spacious nightclub surrounded by an expansive dance floor and VIP booths, is perfect for hip-hop aficionados looking to hear old school hip-hop classics as well as today’s hottest club bangers. Not to mention, the special surprise appearances from hip-hop’s finest celebs including Kanye West, Nas and Jay-Z. Whether it’s industry night or a Friday or Saturday night, TAO is always a popular hot spot for clubbers looking for nothing but the best in hip-hop style.
Located in Paris Las Vegas, this signature rooftop Vegas hip-hop club is a premier go-to spot for partygoers looking to catch up-close and personal appearances and performances by some of today’s hottest hip-hop and R&B stars including Ginuwine, The Dream, Omarion, Nicki Minaj and even Drake, who kicked off the stellar grand opening of the nightclub in 2011. Clubbers can enjoy a wide variety of hip-hop sounds mixed with Top 40 in the main room on select nights. If you’re looking for a non-stop party atmosphere with hip-hop flair, then Chateau will most definitely suit your needs.
When JET at The Mirage closed in 2011, partygoers thought the world was going to end, but in actuality, the birth of 1 OAK brought on a new nightclub experience. With an over-the-top party atmosphere, non-stop hip-hop beats by resident DJs and show stopping performances and appearances by acts such as Chris Brown, Tyga, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg, it didn’t take long for 1 OAK to claim the throne as one of Vegas’ top nightclubs. 1 OAK plays a little house music here and there, but still gives hip-hop lovers what they want which is a one-of-a-kind night at the Sin City hot spot.
