Get on the XS Nightclub guestlist
XS has been around for a while now and is one of the older venues on the strip, however they’ve managed to stay in the forefront when it comes to entertainment and production. XS Nightclub is arguably the best club in all of Las Vegas with its lineup of world famous DJ’s, and it’s absolutely massive Sunday night pool parties, there is no venue in the world like XS. Whether you’re an EDM fan or not, XS Nightclub needs to be on your list of things to check out while in Vegas, just as important as the Vegas sign or Fremont Street.
Steve Wynn, creator of XS and other masterpieces around Las Vegas, leaves absolutely no detail out. You can see this when you enter the casino that hosts XS Nightclub. Encore hotel is objectively one of the most beautiful casinos in all of Las Vegas with world class shows, restaurants, and an eclectic array of guests from all over the globe. You can’t help but feel more refined as you walk through the Wynn Casino to make your way to XS.
A glance at the XS schedule will show you how serious this company is about nightlife and entertainment. Some of XS’s resident DJ’s include but are not limited to Alesso, Diplo, KYGO, Dillon Francis, Afrojack, Marshmello, and more. The nightclub itself is beautifully designed and decorated and on regular nights is a sight to behold. However, on Sunday nights during the summer months, the DJ booth is turned around to face the pool and XS Nightclub gains an extra 65,000 square feet of party space as the pool deck opens up into a raging, wet, party. This is one of those places that you need to see to believe.
When to use Guestlist or get a VIP Table
The XS guestlist only works for girls and even ratio groups. If you have guys in your group, you’ll need to show up EARLY to get free entry–usually 30 minutes of when the club opens. On busy nights, guys will have to pay but being on the guestlist might score them reduced entry. Guestlist will get groups free entry and on busier nights will get guys reduced entry.
If you decide to by a table for the night, you won’t have to pay cover and you’re group will also get in free. You’ll get some real estate to call your own for the night as well as bottle service and a cocktail waitress, security guy, and busser to make sure your night works out smoothly. You can even invite and kick out whoever you want from your section.
When to use guestlist- If you are a group of girls and can show up early, guestlist is a great option. Guestlist usually gets in even ratio groups as well but if you have any guys in your group you’ll need to arrive very early (before 11:00pm) for the guestlist to be effective. Using the guestlist is a great option if you don’t feel like dropping the money for a table or don’t necessarily want to post up in one spot all night.
When to purchase a VIP table- Purchasing a VIP table is a good option if you have 5 or more people in your group and it’s a special occasion or you don’t mind spending the bread. If you have a big group of people and you think you’ll be drinking much at all, buying a table for the night is a great idea. Especially at XS Nightclub, drinks and cover can be expensive. If you’re a group of guys and guestlist won’t work for you, buy a table as opposed to getting tickets. It will be cheaper in the long run and a much better time.
XS Nightclub dress code
XS, like every other club in Vegas, has a very strict dress code. Men should wear collared, button down shirts, nice pants or slacks, and dress shoes. Conversely, guys can also wear a blazer or sport coat over a shirt without a collar. Athletic shoes and boots are generally not allowed however if you’re buying a table and spending money, they are a little more flexible with the clothes they’ll allow.
Women of course have it much easier. They can get away with pretty much whatever they want as long as it’s cute. To be on the safe side, it’s generally a good idea to wear a dress with wedges, heels, or nice flats. Again no athletic shoes are allowed and pants or clothes with rips or tears are usually frowned upon.
On Sunday nights and some Mondays during the hot summer months, XS becomes XS Nightswim. This is hands down one of our absolute favorite parties in Las Vegas and if you’re in town this time of year, take advantage. It’s the one night of the week where you can wear swim stuff to the nightclub and enjoy the outside pool area with gambling tables where the standard XS Nightclub is turned into a megaclub. Standard beach clothes are the attire here so swim trunks for guys and t-shirts and athletic shoes or flip flops are fine. Ladies can wear swimsuit and cover or small shorts and t-shirt. Anything you’d see at a pool party basically. If you plan on swimming, we highly recommend a water proof bag for your belongings so you can keep them with you.
Conversely, if you’re Vegas vacation happens to fall during the winter months, you might plan on bringing a coat or jacket. Understand that most Vegas nightclubs have a coat check and its typically not optional. To get access into the club many venues will make you check your jacket. For this reason, it’s a good idea to keep a little cash on you (most coat checks are around $5) This will save you an expensive trip to the ATM.
How to get to XS Nightclub
XS Nightclub is located in The Encore Hotel at 3131 S. Las Vegas Blvd. in between the Encore and Wynn Hotels. Literally if you enter in through the Wynn, head towards the Encore hotel and you’ll see XS Nightclub. If you enter in through Encore, head towards the Wynn. Most casino’s do a really good job of disorienting whoever passes across the floor but finding XS isn’t bad. If you’re taking ride share, Uber or Lyft, in this casino the pickup is right next to valet.
What we like most about XS Nightclub
XS Nightclub is probably our favorite venue in Las Vegas. Everything about this place is totally immaculate. You’ll start to see what the fuss is about just approaching the Encore Hotel when you’re making your way over to XS. The two hotels, Wynn and Encore seem to erupt out of the desert and stand alone in gold majesty. The design and decoration of the casino floor are breath taking. Appropriately you’ll see all kinds of classy looking people enjoying the casino, laughing and gambling.
The actual nightclub is laid out really well with two bars operating on most nights and the main room forming what looks like a half moon around a multimillion dollar DJ setup. Most nights, part of the pool area will be open too offering a slightly less chaotic area to chill and talk. Some nights (Sunday nights during the summer) the DJ booth will be turned around 180 degrees to face the super expansive pool and cabana area converting the already awesome XS Nightclub into a vast and epic megaclub. Not only will you get to see some of the best shows Vegas has to offer, you’ll get to enjoy some awesome energy with a great crowd. If you’re a fan at all of nightlife, XS Nightclub absolutely should be on your todo list while in Las Vegas.
Who you might see
XS Nightclub has a serious who’s who of resident EDM DJ’s including Alesso, Dillon Francis, Diplo, Marshmello, KYGO, Jauz, Yellowclaw, DJ Snake, and more. It’s parties are large, epic, and exclusive so you know you’re in for a good time. Many big spenders like to frequent the Wynn and Encore Hotels so you can bet you’ll see some money being thrown around here. Even after 8 years, in the industry that’s a long time, XS continues to remain on top as one of Vegas’ premier nightlife destinations.
