XS at Encore


XS at Encore Las Vegas is everything you would expect an upscale nightlife entertainment venue in Las Vegas to be. The club’s 5-star ranking and popularity with the rich and beautiful are well deserved. From luxurious surroundings to servers who many people believe are the best looking in the city to a $10,000 cocktail, nothing about this adult playground is understated.

XS is billed as one of the most expensive nightclubs ever created and it more than lives up to the hype and guest expectations. In fact, the venue just made the top spot in Nightclub & Bar’s Top 100 list for 2015 marking the first time in industry history a nightclub has been able to claim the number one position five times. That is quite an accomplishment for a club that is six years old in a town where longevity alone is difficult to achieve.

This is a place never content to rest on its laurels. Despite the industry accolades, the club introduced a technology renovation during its 2015 New Year’s celebration that included new lasers, 14,000 LED lights surrounding a larger DJ booth and an outside pyrotechnic system that shoots flames into the sky over the pool deck.

An elaborately grand staircase and gold-plated sculptures of women’s nude torsos greet guests as they enter the venue. The focal point of the room is a humongous gold-plated chandelier hanging over the dance floor inside. Outside you will find a spacious pool deck, another DJ booth, a second dance floor, gaming tables and a full service bar.

Bottle services guests can lounge in one of the gold-embossed crocodile skin booths inside or select a luxurious poolside cabana and party under the stars. You would expect a swanky place like XS to mix up cocktails that are just as decadent as the surroundings and it does. The average cocktail price is around $20 but high rollers who want to make a real statement can order up the $10,000 Ono, reported to be the most expensive mixed drink in Sin City.

This luscious libation contains Louis XIII de Remy Martin Black Pearl Cognac and Charles Heidsieck Champagne Charlie 1981 served in an elegant crystal champagne flute. But that’s not all. Treat yourself to an Ono and you get to take home a pair of sterling silver cufflinks for him and a black pearl pedant hanging on an 18-karat white gold chain for her.
