New Year's Eve 2010 In Las Vegas

Las Vegas will once again be home for America's Party to ring in 2010, with fireworks confirmed to launch from the rooftops of seven resort casinos — Aria, Caesars Palace, MGM Grand, Planet Hollywood, Treasure Island, The Stratosphere, and The Venetian. The best outdoor viewings will likely be between Tropicana Avenue and Flamingo Road or near the intersection of Spring Mountain Road and Las Vegas Boulevard.

Without question, Las Vegas is one of the most diverse New Year's Eve destinations in the United States. The celebrations range from gatherings on the Las Vegas Strip to countless nightclub events, concerts, and parties. Prices range from "free" to hundreds of thousands of dollars. To demonstrate the diversity, here are five places to ring in the New Year. Enjoy.

Five Places To Ring In A Las Vegas New Year

The Stirling Club. The Stirling Club will feature a signature 4-course New Year's Eve dinner as well as a special menu in the piano lounge. Entertainment includes Las Vegas' legendary singer-songwriter Early Clover. He began his career as a lead singer with Cornell Gunter's Coasters and has performed with greats that include the Drifters, Platters, Marvelettes, Little Richard, and The Temptations.

The evening will be commemorated with a complimentary champagne toast at midnight. Reservations are required; member admission is $95 per person.

The Gold Lounge Club. Cirque du Soleil headlines with special guest DJ Spins at one of the newest venues on the Las Vegas Strip inside the recently opened Aria. The event will begin at 9 p.m. and continue to 4 a.m. Hors d'oeuvres will be served. Tickets are $125 per person (subject to increases) and include a VIP entrance, hosted bar, and champagne toast at midnight.

LAX Nightclub. LAX at the Luxor has booked the Grammy Award-winning Black Eyed Peas to ring in the New Year. While tickets are $300 per person, LAX is also offering table reservations that range from $8,000 to $60,000 for parties between ten and 100 people. The entry level table reservation ($8,000) includes three bottles of Belvedere, two bottles of Dom Perignon, and admission for up to 10 people on the lower floor.

XS at Encore. The nightclub at Wynn is one of the chicest social scenes in Las Vegas, with two levels, poolside ambiance, and signature 10-foot chandelier that rotates above the dance floor. Doors open at 9 p.m. with an open bar through 10 p.m. Although XS doesn't have an "official" headliner, the club is well known as a favorite among the friends of Steve Wynn and Victor Drai. General admission is currently set at $75 for ladies and $150 for gentlemen.

Fremont Street Experience. While other venues are expected to sell out, The Fremont Street Experience provides an "always open," casual Las Vegas-style event with up to 30,000 people expected to attend. At the heart of the event are eight tribute bands covering INXS, Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Aerosmith, U2, Depeche Mode, and No Doubt. The performances begin early at 6 p.m. and conclude at 1 p.m. Admission is $10 for residents and $20 for out-of-state guests. Mayor Oscar Goodman will lead the countdown to the New Year, which features live and virtual fireworks.

For more New Year's Eve options and events, members are invited to call The Stirling Club concierge. All guests are encouraged to make reservations as soon as possible as these events and limousine rentals tend to sell out by New Year's Eve. It's also recommended that guests confirm dress codes as many venues strictly enforce them.

If you would like a bigger selection of activities in Las Vegas beyond those we've mentioned above, Early Vegas provides a good comprehensive list as well.
