Club Report: Studio 54 (Las Vegas)
Was in Las Vegas these past few days for Spring Break and one place that had to be checked out was the reincarnated version of the famous NYC nightclub, Studio 54. Located in the MGM Grand Hotel, the 2-level club was a little bit on the underwhelming side. Thursday nights are advertised as hip hop, Top 40 and house but the music I heard was 100% hip hop. There is some cool lighting, a lot of the music is played with the accompanying video on the monitors and the go go dancers are a nice touch. Drinks are Vegas-priced at around $10 each. I expected more ooompf which was not delivered but it was ok. There a many, many night clubs on the Strip so there is something for everyone. Paul Oakenfold has a Saturday night residencey at the Palms that surely is awesome but unfortunately my visit did not include a Saturday night stay.
