Break out the flamingo beer bongs—Ghostbar Dayclub returns for a fifth season of daytime debauchery this Saturday.
Back in 2011, the Palms party phenom pioneered the combo of pool-less, under-the-sun raging and over-the-top visuals, and other venues have since borrowed its neon-infused, EDC-esque vibe. But as the OG, GBDC should definitely be on your Vegas revelry bucket list.
Partygoers can expect the usual sensory overload for Season 5: vibrant rave wear and Halloween costumes, ostentatious bottle presentations, confetti showers and an utterly bumpin’ soundtrack sprinkled with nostalgic tunes that’ll have the entire room singing along. (Think: Dr. Dre’s “The Next Episode” and 50 Cent’s “In Da Club.”)
This season’s calendar is full of fun themes—Halloween’s Day of the Killer Costumes (October 31), a rodeo-inspired bash (December 5) and GBDC’s Pajama Jam (December 12) and Holiday Giveaway Extravaganza (December 19)—plus days hosted by celebrities who match the random, fun-loving nature of GBDC itself, like Champagne-shower enthusiast/nightlife photographer Kirill Was Here (October 24), controversial comedian Josh “The Fat Jew” Ostrovsky (November 14) and Instagram sensations Baddiewinkle (November 7) and F*ckJerry (November 21).
You’ll need a few things to ensure optimal enjoyment while knocking back paper-bagged forties and getting caught in confetti downpours. Here’s a handy checklist:
• Glow-in-the-dark fanny pack
• Last year’s NYE noisemakers
• Rainbow tutus
• Slatted Kanye shades
• Uber (because you might hit the shot-ski a few times)
• Comfortable shoes (come on, ladies, leave the heels at home)
• Body glitter
• Advil (for the day after—duh!)
