The annual Nightclub & Bar show returns to the Las Vegas Convention Center March 26-28, but you don’t have to wait to find out which venues are taking 2018 Nightclub & Bar Awards trophies. Naturally, Vegas venues have dominated this year: Tao Group wins for Decadent Brunch Soirée for Lavo’s off-the-chain party brunch weekends at Palazzo; Hakkasan Group’s megaclub Omnia at Caesars Palace wins for Mind-Bending Visual Choreography; Wynn Nightlife gets the award for Quintessential Artist Lineup and Performances at its trio of venues, XS, Intrigue and Encore Beach Club; and Drai’s Nightclub & Beachclub at the Cromwell is recognized for Unrivaled Panoramic Strip Spectacle.

Nightlife hasn’t been a focus at the ever-changing SLS Las Vegas resort at the north tip of the Strip, but daylife is making a comeback. Foxtail has been operating as a special-events space for some time now, but Foxtail Pool Club gets back in action for the season with a grand opening this weekend, bringing in DJs Karma, Ikon and Kid Conrad.
Meanwhile at Tao Beach, the bunnies will be back earlier than ever when Playboy Fridays launches on March 16. Next door at Palazzo, the year-old Aquatic Club is ready for Season 2 and also opens on the 15th.
