The numbers are in for 2014 and as expected, XS was the highest grossing nightclub last year, taking in a whopping $103-$105 million in revenue. Following close behind in second was another Vegas club, Hakkasan. In fact, 7 of the top 10 clubs are located in Sin City, with venues in New York, California and Florida mostly rounding out the rest of the list.
As anyone who has been to Vegas can attest to, it’s hard to find better nightlife than what you get there, and having been to XS, Hakkasan and Marquee myself, I can definitely tell you that these clubs are deserving of the spots they’ve earned on this list. Along with many of the city’s other hotspots, they consistently attract top tier talent and put on incredible events. They’ve all got their pros and cons, of course, but you really can’t go wrong with any of the three. And the same can be said for most of Vegas’ top venues.
When it comes to the rest of the list, while there is certainly nothing wrong with places like LAVO New York, Avenue, Story Miami, LIV, PHD etc., having been to all of them I can tell you firsthand that they simply can’t compete with what Vegas offers. And with two new clubs opening up in America’s dance mecca this year, it’s only going to get bigger and better out there.
Tell us, have you been to any of these nightclubs? If so, which are your favorite to party at?
