Nightlife at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino

Though it is not located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino knows how to party as much as any other resort in Las Vegas. Looking for live music? Dreaming of dancing the night away? Prefer to kick back in a bar? Yes, yes and yes … Hard Rock Hotel can deliver.


Vanity Nightclub is the only nightclub at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, and its focus is on you … but, isn’t that what vanity is all about, anyway? It is outfitted with bronze and gold metallic accented with pearls and crystals, and the highlight of the decor is a chandelier with 20,000 crystals that hangs over the dance floor.

At 14,000 square feet in size, it’s much more intimate than other Las Vegas nightclubs, but the space still manages to pack in two bars, a sunken dance floor, 50 VIP booths and an outdoor terrace.

Open Friday through Sunday 10:00 p.m.-4:00 a.m.

Lounges and Bars

Center Bar

Located in the Casino Tower of Hard Rock Hotel, Center Bar is open 24 hours a day. Though there aren’t lounge chairs or tables for comfortable relaxation, there is ample space around the bar itself to accommodate guests.

Luxe Bar

Located in the Hard Rock Hotel Tower is Luxe Bar, an opulent space with cast iron chandeliers and dark wood paneling. Luxe Bar is situated right on the casino floor and is open 24 hours a day.


Arguably Hard Rock Hotel’s most popular bar, SKYBAR, is only open during the summer months. Located above the Hard Rock Hotel Beach Club, this lounge is on the pool deck, offering guests the opportunity to escape the nightclub scene for something a bit more relaxed. SKYBAR has 14 cabanas and a picturesque view of the Strip in the distance.

Live Music

The Joint

Hard Rock Hotel is home to The Joint, one of the most popular live performance venues in Las Vegas. Opened in 2009, this 4,000-seat venue is spacious enough to attract A-list musicians while still offering an intimate concert setting. A top-of-the-line music and video projection system enhances the concert experience. Santana is a regular performer at The Joint, playing approximately 36 shows per year at Hard Rock Hotel.

Poolside Concerts

During the summer months, the weather in Las Vegas is ideal for evening and late-night concerts. At Hard Rock Hotel, the beach club is converted into a concert venue, which has hosted many big name performers. Though it sounds good in theory, many people feel that the pool itself greatly impedes the concert space and prefer The Joint to the outdoor concerts offered at Hard Rock Hotel.
