Opening day at Liquid Pool Lounge It’s the second-to-last week of winter, and you know what that means—the start of pool-party season. So call in sick and report to Aria’s shrouded oasis as it opens its doors for 2015. Local DJ Kid Conrad lays down the beats. March 13, doors at 11 a.m., $30+ men, $10+ women.
Ludacris at Surrender With new album Ludaversal due out later this month and the premiere of Furious 7 set for early April, the rapper-turned-actor has a lot to promote right now. Here’s hoping he treats the crowd to a few new tracks when he takes the mic at the Encore club Friday night. March 13, doors at 10:30 p.m., $40+ men, $30+ women.
Off the Wall at Beauty Bar Didn’t get your art fix during First Friday? Still looking to cut a rug Downtown? Enter street-art collective Industry Supporting Industry’s “graffiti disco,” complete with a live graffiti art installation and funk, soul, rare groove and hip-hop tunes courtesy of DJs Edoc, BZ Beats, Daze and Aurajin. March 14, doors at 9 p.m., free entry.
Green Party at Share St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, so why not get your green on a bit early over the weekend? The off-Strip LGBT club invites revelers to “get lucky” Saturday night with half-priced drinks until midnight and a soundtrack courtesy of Salt Lake City-based DJ Robbie Rob. March 14, doors at 10 p.m., free entry.
After with DJ Boris at Body English The New York City mainstay used to come around these parts to play Empire Ballroom’s afterhours party, so it makes sense he’d return to perform at After’s own pre-sunrise throwdown. Boris is known for his mid-2000s remixes of Top 40 artists, but his original productions and DJ sets are strictly house and techno, banging hard enough to propel you to breakfast. March 15, 2 a.m., $20+ men, $10+ women.
O’Sheas BLOQ Party at the LINQ Here’s a party checklist if there ever was one: live music (by Darby O’Gill, Garage Boys, The Hooligans and surprise pop-up bands), bagpipers, dancers, stilt walkers, parades, beer trucks, mobile bars, cornhole and beer-pong contests and, of course, leprechauns. If you’re not clanking pints with leprechauns on St. Patrick’s Day, you might as well pour your neighborhood bar’s green Bud Light over your head. March 17, doors at noon, free entry.
St. Patrick’s Day at McFadden’s The party-hearty Irish pub celebrates the Emerald Isle’s patron saint Tuesday with a boozy, Erin Go Bragh bash—and with $4 green beers, $5 Jameson shots, $6 Car Bombs and $7 pints of Guinness, you won’t need a pot o’ gold to show your Irish pride properly. Did we mention the $1K Build-Your-Own-Bikini contest? In the booth: DJs T3d Morri5, Brando and Mickey. March 17, 11 a.m.-close, free entry.
Down & Derby at Gold Spike The Downtown party spot is launching its new throwback promo PYT #RetroWednesdays in fitting style—it’s bringing Down & Derby back to Las Vegas. The drink-and-skate bash will feature PBR/Jameson drink specials (among others) and DJs SHR3D and Supra. Thankfully, if you don’t own your own quad rollers, Gold Spike will have free loaner pairs. March 18, 9 p.m., free.
