Vegas Clubs and Nightlife During COVID-19 Pandemic

What does the Vegas nightlife look like now and will clubs open back up in 2020 at all?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing guidelines, doubt remains about when the full Vegas nightlife will return.

Most clubs are closed and the only clubs that are really open are pools at night.

If you’re visiting Vegas soon and you’re desperate to see the club scene, check out these 5 available options.

What clubs and nightlife options are open now?

xs las vegas nightclub

XS Lounge

XS Las Vegas is open Friday and Saturday from 10:30 PM to close.  It is not the typical packed club with headling DJs of the past, but more a relaxed lounge experience.  

It is an elegant and intimate environment surrounding Encore’s European pool.

There is indoor seating that guests can enjoy along with light dining and drinks (signature cocktails, bottle service, wine, spirits, and more).

Reservations are required.

EBC Pool Encore Las Vegas

EBC Pool (Night Swim)

Encor Beach Pool nightlife is one viable option to get your club/nighlife fix in Vegas.

Night Swim seeks to combine all of the elements that you would enjoy at a day club and pool plus exciting nighttime entertainment.

There are light dining and drink options available.

EBC Pool (Night Swim) is open Thursday through Saturday from 10:30 PM until close.

Reservations are required, 21 and up. 

The Pool at Marquee 2020

Marquee at Night

The Marquee at Night is a pool venue open on Friday and Saturday night once the sun sets (10 PM to late).

This venue is a 22,000 square-foot terrace that transforms into a moonlight outdoor lounge.

Cocktail, bottle service, and snacks are available.

Dress code is required (more information available on their website), and all guests must be 21 and up.

Daylight Vegas Pool Club

Daylight Beach at Night

Daylight Beach at Night is another phenomenal option if you’re looking for a Vegas nightlife scene during COVID-19.

This venue is open on Friday and Saturday nights from 9 PM until close.

It is located at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Foundation Room (House of Blues)

If you’re seeking a non-pool option, then the Foundation Room at the House of Blues is a great fit.

It offers great views of the strip.

Following the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the House of Blues instituted new safety and sanitation guidelines. You will experience…

  • A worry-free dining experience because of increased sanitizing protocols
  • Reduced capacity
  • New sanitation stations throughout the venue

The Foundation Room is open:
