Piranha Nightclub frequently appears on the top of the list of the best gay nightclubs in Las Vegas. While many of the Las Vegas nightclubs are located in the resort, Piranha shares a building with 8 1/2 Ultra Lounge on Paradise Road—on the south end of the route known as the Fruit Loop. Don’t let outside appearances fool you. After crossing under the aquarium filled with actual live piranha, you’ll enter the club, dressed in shades of blue and gray, with a crystal chandelier and columns made of red light. Plenty of booths spread throughout the club offer great views of the Las Vegas skyline or the dance floor. A special VIP section is located on the second floor, and private skyboxes are available for the VIPs who desire privacy. Expect to find some great drink specials to go along with the DJs and hot events at one of the best clubs in Vegas.
Cover charge: It depends on the event. On many nights, locals get in free (with a Nevada drivers license) and out-of-towners pay $10. Special events and weekends bring a higher cover charge.
Music: DJs spin a mix of tunes: dance hits from the Top 40, techno, house music, and anything else with a great beat.
Dress: Unless you're entering the underwear contest, club wear is the standard dress at the Piranha Nightclub.
Hours: The club opens nightly by 10 p.m., and the party goes towards dawn.
VIP: Special VIP Packages can be reserved by calling (702) 379-9500. Most packages include choice seating along with mixers and a bottle of premium liquor. Bottle service can be reserved online or by phone for Friday and Saturday nights, and party-goers can go online to request a place on the VIP guest list for the weekends.
Special Events: Piranha Nightclub hosts a mix of one-time special events and weekly special events. The week begins with Speakeasy Monday and builds to 3D Fridays, Piranha Saturdays, and El Deseo Sundays. Each night has its own drink specials during part of the night. Piranha also has one-time events, including concerts and guest DJs.
