Las Vegas: Bacchanalia in the Desert

Reinforcing its status as a perennial party town, Las Vegas welcomes 300,000 revelers to ring in the New Year. Hotels, clubs and bars take it to the limit with special shows, but many lock their doors around the midnight hours, so you'll need to decide whether you want to be in or out. We recommend out, since the four-mile-long Strip becomes a vehicle-free promenade (starting at 6 p.m.) where you can drink, mingle and watch fireworks shot off from surrounding rooftops. For a rockin' good time, hit up The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel where the theme this year is Empire Records — spinning iconic 90s bands like Nirvana and No Doubt, as well as pop and R&B hits from Mariah, Britney and more. For something a tad mellower, enjoy the music of The Beatles with Cirque du Soleil's New Year's Eve performance of LOVE at The Mirage — what better way to celebrate the hard day's night that is New Year's Eve in Las Vegas?
