Moon @ Palms

Night after night, Moon Nightclub turns into a body-to-body dance party paired up with a retractable roof, a dazzling light-and-effects show and regular celebrity performances.

This two-level oasis of debauchery brings one of the hottest dance floors in all of Las Vegas. Interchanging lights flash on the dance floor below your feet as laser lights rip through the air with a number of different effects.

The dance floor is usually ripping at the seams with people, whose collective body heat makes for a sauna-like atmosphere. And, just then as your body feels like it's reaching its boiling point, the roof begins to slide open and the rush of fresh air cools the masses, allowing them to keep the party going.

The most attractive booths in the club are located parallel to the dance floor, leaving guests right in the midst of the action.

If you find yourself in need of a breather you can venture to the outer ring of the booth area that sits slightly elevated from the dance floor or venture outside to take in a breathtaking view of the Las Vegas valley.

There are two bars inside. The first will almost immediately welcome you upon entering. The other rests up the spiral staircases to either side and is often open for VIP events.

The club itself sees a number of VIPs. Recently Snoop showed up to wish skater Ryan Sheckler a happy 21st birthday and stuck around to perform a few of his hits.

With all this going for Moon, you may want to think about establishing a permanent residence in one of the Palms Fantasy Suites.
