With bars, lounges and nightclubs basically forming the Boulevard, barhopping was pretty much made for Las Vegas. And the Venetian and Palazzo just made it even easier with their new “exclusive bar hop experience.” Enjoy unlimited well drinks, house wines and domestic beers at the property’s Laguna Champagne Bar, Fusion Mixology Bar, Salute Lounge, Oculus Bar and the La Scena Lounge—all for just $75 per day ($150 for a weekend pass). Visit any Venetian/Palazzo box office to purchase. —Mark Adams
Fans of the Pussycat Dolls had one very voluptuous reason to check out last weekend’s grand opening of the branded Burlesque Saloon attached to Gallery nightclub at Planet Hollywood. Former lead doll Carmen Electra—from back when the ladies danced at the Viper Room and focused more on tease than the Top 40—christened the club with a special performance that had her chair dancing onstage and spending a few minutes in a bedazzled bathtub. Just try thinking clean thoughts.
Once upon a time, Sundays were a day of rest. Now they’re just an extension of Saturday night. New to the daylife lineup is Palms Place’s The Sunday Scene, which debuted last weekend with visits from several Miss USA contestants. While they won’t be flooding the Palms Place pool with rubber duckies a la its bygone locals’ bash, the weekly noon to 5 p.m. party will bring in DJs like Zen Freeman, Mark Stylz and Scientific, along with surprise celeb guests, a chill, secluded atmosphere and menu items from Simon’s Sunday brunch. Ladies free; guys start at $40.
Ready for another Fling? The Weekly’s roving locals party moves to the Foundation Room atop Mandalay Bay on June 16 for a chic soiree with complimentary Guinness, Pyrat Rum cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres. The drinks will flow from 8 to 10 p.m., so RSVP at lasvegasweekly.com/fling, and get there early.—Sarah Feldberg
