What happens in Vegas

Las Vegas is known as the city to party, gamble and do things that are generally not considered ‘normal’. A city with plenty to do and see, you will not find yourself having a dull moment.

I went to sin city to for the weekend to celebrate my baby sis’s 21st birthday. Needless to say you can’t go wrong with celebrating in Vegas. Unless you decide to reenact ‘The Hangover’, which luckily for us there were no similar instances on this occasion, well other than staying at Caesar’s Palace… “This isn’t the real Caesar’s Palace is it?”

Living in Salt Lake City, I made the 6 hour drive south to meet up with my sister who flew in from her school. Let me tell you, that drive by yourself gets old real fast, but is MUCH cheaper and well worth it compared to spending the money on a flight down. Besides, my fellow Utahns know that a weekend drive to Vegas is almost a right of passage and considered a norm.


Friday Night 

For this shindig, we stayed at Caesar’s Palace. We got a pretty great deal off Kayak.

With my sister’s flight getting in pretty late, we jumped right into the nightlife. We went to OMNIA, a club in Caesar’s Palace, chosen for convenient location and the fact that Calvin Harris was one of the DJ’s for the night. We couldn’t pass that up.

Review: Omnia Nightclub in Las Vegas

o

Omnia is a club in Las Vegas, Nevada. While Vegas is full of night clubs, you will find this one located in Caesar’s Palace. All of this is my own opinion thrown in with basic information on the club. They have not asked me to do a review or promote them.


My experience at Omnia was a memorable one. I was able to go to celebrate my sister’s 21st birthday with her. While Omnia seemed to offer a celebration for birthday’s we decided to keep it low key since it was just the two of us.

We were able to go on a night when Calvin Harris was the DJ for the club, which was pretty spectacular in itself. If you ever have a chance to see him DJ, don’t pass it up!

Getting In

My sister and I purchased a V.I.P. bar card deal prior to going. This cost us $115 each. This included guaranteed entrance before midnight and $100 gift card to the bar. So technically our entrance fee was $15 rather than the $20 it usually costs women to get into the club. Men’s prices were about $10 more last I checked.

This V.I.P. bar card was SO worth it. It is no secret that drinks in Vegas are expensive. So with two $100 gift cards we were each able to get about 5 drinks and a shot each. Having this card helped us keep to a budget. It’s easy to get carried away when you’re having a good time.

Another option, besides waiting in line for regular admittance, is to get a V.I.P. table. My understanding for this option is that you have to request a reservation for a table prior to the night you would like to go. Omnia did have quite a few tables, all of which were full on the night that I went. If you have a big group you are going with, it may be worth looking into.

Club Dress Code

Dress codes for clubs in Vegas all seem to be fairly similar. Men, be sure to wear button down shirts and nice pants, no jeans or shorts. Ladies, this is the time and place to dress up, so pull out your party outfit and heels. Below is an example of what my sister and I wore.

All of the clubs in Vegas seemed to open around 10pm. Omnia stays open until 3am.

I had a great time at this club, and that is saying something since clubs are not usually my scene. It felt like it still maintained class and had a very chill and fun atmosphere. The special affects and lighting were definitely something to behold.

I went for Calvin Harris, but this place is definitely one I’ll be going back to the next time i’m in Las Vegas.
