Las Vegas Gay Nightclubs Update, No Gay Days 2016

krush fridaysWe heard rumors that Share may be closing down and those turned out to be true unfortunately. Share, the largest LGBT nightclub in Las Vegas shut its doors last month. The gay scene in Las Vegas only has one dance club left which is not on the strip but on the gay Fruit Loop and that club is Piranha.

But where can you catch drag queens and hot gogo dancers in straight people’s sin city? Wait in line for a dress code club with overly expensive drinks on the strip? Stay tuned because there are a few that are coming soon to Las Vegas at least we are hearing about.

Krush Nightclub
Housed in the former Rendezvous space on Arville off Tropicana, Krush nightclub will celebrate its grand opening July 22. The venue is already promoting weekly parties (Hip-Hop Wednesdays, Throwback Thursdays, F*ck It Fridays, Shirtless Saturdays and Latin Night Sundays) and drag shows hosted by local queen Elektra Del Rio. They have an adult entertainment cabaret license so private dance rooms will be part of this club’s attraction.

Revolt Nightclub
Revolt Nightclub is a new nightlife concept coming to the LGBT community in Late Summer of 2016. It will be a welcoming space with state of the art lighting and sound, amazing talent, and top notch staff according to their website. They will be only be open on Friday and Saturday nights but from 10pm-4am. Facebook users who were part of the former Rendezvous club’s group might’ve recently noticed they’re now fans of Revolt which took over the page and contact list. No details on the location of the club as of yet other than that it is “east of the Boulevard.” More details on Revolt here.

The Fruit Loop is also gaining another gay nightspot in Elevate set to open this fall. Its address indicates the lounge will be located in the space next to Piranha, left vacant by the Cottage Café.

The Locker Room
A spot that is fairly new and has been flying under the radar after opening in June in the space formerly occupied by Club Unity is the Locker Room. In addition to live entertainment and drag performances, the venue offers a place to dine.

Lux Saturdays
A new LGBT party at a mainstream nightlife destination at Town Square’s Neche opened on July 16.

Clique Lounge
LGBT party at Cosmopolitan launched its Together Tuesdays on July 19.

Gay_Days_at_Disney_World_Orlando_Florida_and_Las_Vegas_NevadaGay Days who is known for their parties in Orlando each year announced to their fans this last month that they will not be coming to Las Vegas this year. Last year they came a week away from Pride weekend which was a bit awkward and most likely contributed to a less than expected turnout. The event planners should know that if you want to get a huge gay crowd then do it during Gay Pride in Vegas instead of the week before or after. Gay Days organization was probably also taken back because there were no venues this year to have their parties but Piranha which is just not as big as Krave and Share they have had in the past.

We hope that Gay Days Las Vegas comes back stronger than ever in 2017 after some of these above clubs have a chance at gaining momentum and patrons. You would think that Britney Spears would be enough to keep gays coming and coming to Las Vegas.
