Rave on the strip?  Yes—it’s happening.  Don’t wait for EDC to get a taste of the underground music scene that will cost you a pretty penny.  OFASHO, the EDM promoter from Atlanta, has created something special for Vegas.  Get ready for monthly raves unlike any you’ve seen before as Atlanta EDM DJs and our flashy Sin City DJs mix their styles for one unforgettable party.

Let’s get down to (music) business.  Hosted by MC Ross, other DJs include Dj Syl-O, DJ E. Coli, DJ Ployd, DJ Zaiaku, DJ Crime and DJ BPSS.  But that’s not all; there will be two special guest DJs and plenty of gorgeous showgirls, so you’ll be entertained all night long.  Wicked Hammer Energy Drink will be supplying specials at the bar, so those 21 and up can enjoy their favorite drinks, hit up the dance floor, and, of course, listen to some of the best underground EDM.

The Boulevard Theater is proving that they can make an incredible platform for all kinds of performing arts and nightlife entertainment.  With over 19,000 square feet of multi-level space, five lavish bars, plenty of seating (for when you need a little dancing break), and state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems that are perfect for a rave, this venue is the place to be (and it's just steps from the MGM Grand).  Even better?  The Boulevard Theater has historically been a hotspot for techno; it’s the same space where Club Utopia and the later Empire Ballroom shook up the EDM scene.

Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome, and there’s no dress code, so slip into something neon and sexy and get ready to party.  Presale tickets are $10, tickets at the door is $20 for locals and $40 for out-of-state visitors.  Or you can go big (like you should in Vegas) and snag $50 VIP presale tickets or $60 VIP tickets at the door.  Sho Stomp doors will open at 10 p.m. and close around 6 a.m., and you can get your rave on every third Thursday of the month.  The first one is January 17, so make sure you get your tickets, grab your glowsticks, and raise your glass to the rave that’s redefining the EDM scene in our very own Sin City.

Mini-bars are becoming the hot new thing in Vegas casinos where visitors can grab a delicious drink in style before they hit one of the big clubs.  The Palms is definitely raising the bar with two new additions:  Scarlet, which opened in December, is a sophisticated mixology bar, and Social will open January 25 with a menu perfect for whiskey lovers.

Thirsty for signature cocktails and infused spirits?  Scarlet highlights the art of mixology in an intimate setting.   The 200-square-foot space is adjacent to N9NE Steakhouse and features a diverse menu created by Francesco Lafranconi and the N9NE bartenders.  Loosen up a bit with the Foreplay shot, a tasty combination of Licor 43, Baileys Caramel Cream, Absolut Vanila, all served s’mores style.  Or sip on one of their signature cocktails or seasonal infusions.  You won’t be disappointed. 

Social sports a menu that will make whiskey-drinkers rejoice.  The new bar will offer a selection of beverages, but they’ll feature an impressive list of whiskey-based cocktails.  With over 30 unique labels, single malts and limited edition bourbons, Social will surely fix your whiskey cravings.  Not sure which whiskey you want?  Bartenders can pour you a sample so you can pick what you’re really craving.  Sip on one of their libations like the Social Misfit, a mix of Disaronno, Bulliet Rye, White Peach Nagomi and lemon juice.  You’ll have a perfect view of the gaming action as you relax in the plush booths.

The Palms, which is undergoing a $50 million property renovation, is paving the way for stylish mini bars that are perfect for grabbing a quick drink or enjoying top-shelf spirits.  Scarlet and Social will quickly become Vegas hotspots as they offer the perfect mix of delicious drinks in a sexy, chic, and sophisticated setting.  We'll raise our glass to that.
