Las Vegas Nightlife: Disco is alive and thriving at the MGM Grand's Studio 54. This very elaborate and glitzy remake of the fabled NYC's Studio 54 is a dancer's paradise and a disco lover's fantasy. It is a great place to recapture the essence of the "Saturday Night Fever" era. Dance recklessly to the infectious grooves of yesterday's disco music or today's throbbing techno tunes. Martinis are the special of the house, as the retro club was the first hotspot on the Strip to offer a complete martini menu. Shake your booty and get down for a night at Vegas' Studio 54!
The club holds over 2,000 guests, as there are four separate dance floors throughout the club's 22,000 square feet of inner space. The dancing areas are padded to provide more of a cushion for pushing and to add a bounce to the dancers' steps. Wall walkers and live dancers can be seen romping and stomping on their individual dance boxes, and on certain nights, there are aerial acts performed too. The second floor is private and holds up to 400 guests. VIPs are provided with their own exclusive bartender.
The high ceilings, steel staircases, and floor-to-ceiling draperies combined with confetti-blasting cannons, falling balloons, flashing lights, and swirling streams of icy smoke make the journey through the time machine a success as the magical euphoric spirit of NYC's Studio 54 lives on.
Club wear is required. Securing reservations in advance is highly recommended. Check out Studio 54's Web site, or call 702-891-7279 for info.
