When you’ve lasted more than ten years in this town it’s pretty clear you’re doing something right. Having outlasted clubs, restaurants and even a few property names (we’re looking at you, Quad), Tao is now a Vegas mainstay and one of the spots you shouldn’t miss if you’re planning a tour of the Las Vegas club scene.While eating at Tao Restaurant, you can say that you’re there for the food, the ambiance or because the giant Buddha inspires you to both eat more and somehow still learn the value of sacrifice. But when you enter Tao Nightclub, your reasons for hitting the town blend more into the light and the leather.Visually, the nightclub space is some sort of take on Buddhism mixed with ancient styling mixed with a modern club mixed with girls in bathtubs full of flower petals. The reddish hue that fills the main room isn’t entirely unique in the club world, but the lights work with the décor and the assuredness in the construction to make the space feel like a longstanding temple to a faith that practically deifies girls in bathtubs full of flower petals. We won’t put the club on the spot and say the girls will absolutely always be there, but when it comes to girls in bathtubs full of rose petals, it’s better to err on the side of hope. That’s a Buddhist thing, right?The dancing space is divided into two areas: The actual dance floor full of bumping music, sweating bodies and all the lights and shapes they can throw around; and the lounge space full of seating that’s just the right mix of intimate and open. You can certainly dance in the wide space between the booths on one side and the booths on the other, and you probably won’t be alone; but there’s a reason the actual floor gets the lights. The lounge has a bar. The dance floor has the DJ booth. And the two spots connect to each other through the main walkways or through a quick hop over the backs of the booths which you should definitely not do. You will get in trouble--even if you tell them you work for Vegas.com and you were just testing the temperature of the rose petals in the bath tubs.If you’re tired of dancing or getting creeped out by all the Buddha statues staring at you, and you can’t score a table on the second floor overlooking the main room, the Opium Room might be the spot for you. No there’s no real opium. And we've been instructed not to put a winky face after that statement. The Opium Room is just a clever name for a chill lounge with its own bar, its own DJ booth and a style that’s more like the inside of a beautiful bamboo jewelry box instead of the shiny pink jewelry that is the main room.As a nightlife venue, Tao has become synonymous with Las Vegas glamour and quasi-Eastern-religion themed nightlife experiences the world over. Everyday club goers who stroll in through the Grand Canal Shoppes find a new world of warm, wooden comfort on the ground and bright, Vegas glitterati in the air. The club has brought in names like Diddy, Snoop Dogg (it was Dogg at the time, probably) and Krewella. And combined with the restaurant and Tao Beach, the Tao experience becomes something so much more than the sum of its parts. (Is that a Buddhist saying? Well it is now.) And did we mention girls in bathtubs full of rose petals?

Horrible Experience
PostedSeptember 18, 2013
We purchased our tickets ahead of time for no reason. We were given the runaround about where we go. We were not suppose to stand in line because we had VIP tickets but we did anyways because half the staff didnt know where we were suppose to go. When we get to the front of line, they apologize (after a 2 hour wait in line). We get our hands stamped showing Tao I'd and a VIP wristband. Later that night, we go outside the club to talk to our friends who could not get in. When we proceed to go back into the club, we were denied access. Apparantely, the VIP bands and hand stamp were not good enough, we needed to either pay to get back in or not go in. Then, they wouldnt let us go back in to get our purses so that we could leave. We had to wait until our other friends who were still inside came out. Overall, nice setup on the roof, everything else was horrible. Drinks were not strong either.

Palms Pool and Dayclub brings entertainment poolside with its special events and decked out party cabanas. Ordinary cabanas just protect you from the sun in between dips in the pool and races to the bathroom, and give you that exclusive feeling of having a bit of canvas and wood in between you and the riff raff -- or Riff Raff if that guy shows up. But Palms Pool and Dayclub also includes gaming consoles like Xbox, PS3 and old school NES, so you can ignore other humans even while you're at a pool party. But the fun doesn't stop there.Ditch Fridays returns for another summer of calling in sick to work then getting caught by your boss who also happened to head out to the pool -- your blackmails cancel each other out in that case. The party brings in big name DJs to rock your Friday right. And select Mondays throughout the season feature "Cabanas for a Cause" when cabanas can be purchased for a minimum $100 donation to the featured charity of the week. Just imagine how fun it would be to pause your game of Mario Kart to tell the hotties walking by that you bought your cabana to benefit something like skin cancer research.Cabanas and daybeds must be reserved with a food and beverage minimum, but the lounge chairs are first come, first served. The full space also has lily pads available for those willing to brave the sun. And DJs bring the music so you don't feel obligated to make small talk while you're wearing a skimpy bathing suit. They've also got food to give you an excuse to stay out of the pool without having to admit that the chlorine irritates your bikini wax. One food option is "Atomic" wings, just in case the Vegas weather isn't hot enough for you. And of course they've got plenty of drinks to keep you hydrated, or at least too drunk to realize you're sweating vodka.

Terrible organization
PostedSeptember 18, 2013
We went to the Palms Pool during Fight weekend to see Robin Thicke perform. We purchased tickets ahead of time so we could guarantee that we could get in. First, none of the staff knew where we needed to go to get our wristbands. The line had a 2 hour wait so we left, ate lunch, and came back and then line was down to about a 30 minute wait. We just so happened to ask another staff member where we needed to go. They directed us someplace else to go get our bands and once we got our bands, no need to wait in line. Well, we get to the front, there is no line, people w/ bands are just pushing to get it.
Overall, horrible experience. Robin performed 3 songs and left. Nice place to relax at pool, terrible for a show.
