Tao. Everyone wants to be like you. Everyone wants to go to you. But the truth of the matter is no one has been able to match your status.And while you fit the population of Rhode Island inside your club, a crowd big enough to fill the state of Texas waits outside. Could you be any more popular?Probably not, but you will try.Tao has bucked the trend that so many of the "it" nightclubs before it have faced. Despite nearing its fifth year of existence, the admiration for Tao has yet to wane. We regular folk stand in long lines hoping to get in and celebrities still flock here to be seen partying it up in skybox booths.  Is Tao the most comfortable place? Truthfully, no. With so many people there you won't get in a good conversation or really be able to dance. But you came to Tao for a party didn't you? And when you leave Tao at 3 a.m., the time you would normally look for an afterhours spot, odds are you're going to be too tired because you just used all your energy having the time of your life.You're going to tell your grandkids about the club you went into once that had women covered in flower petals dancing inside of a tub. On most Friday and Saturday nights you wouldn't see more celebrities on a Hollywood movie set than you would at Tao. The list is too big to think about posting here, but names like Paris Hilton, T-Pain, Slash, Charles Barkley, Pamela Anderson and a host of reality TV stars have all been spotted there.  It's hard to pinpoint one thing that makes Tao so great, but you can find a bunch of things and string those together to come up with the answer. For starters, you don't have to go anywhere else. You can start your day soaking up the sun at Tao Beach, grab a bite to eat at Tao Restaurant, hook up some pre-party drinks at the lounge at Tao and, oh yeah, there's still the club to go to.The décor at Tao has to be seen to be understood, but here are some of the highlights: an army of Buddhas, women dancing in the aforementioned tubs, oversized-jade Buddha heads and perhaps the only abacus in the world that's used for decoration.The area is separated into different rooms, giving you a chance to change the atmosphere by moving to a different part of the club. If you're looking for an out- of-control riot of a party, go to the main room where the bodies on the dance floor flow into each other and after a few seconds you won't know where you end and someone else begins.Or take it a down a notch in the smaller room to the left of the entrance. There's still a decent amount of people there, but you have a bit more freedom to move around. Or even take the party outside to Tao Beach and party poolside.It wasn't known five years ago that Tao would become this popular, but with the crowds still piling up outside it doesn't look like the party will come to an end anytime soon. Like the true meaning of the word Tao, the club has no beginning or end. According to our short-attention spans in Vegas, Tao always was the "it" place.-- Review by Justin Lawson

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.

It's amazing what a little MTV can do for a place.The Palms went from little known hotel off the Strip to rock star status in 2002 thanks to "The Real World." Needless to say, the Palms represents this generation well.The Palms' rock star status can be seen all over the hotel from the swanky Ghostbar to the Hardwood Suite. But when rock stars look to cool off, where else do they go but the pool. And it wouldn't be the Palms Pool if they didn't put together several events to keep you in that party mood. There are two acres of swimming pools in an opulent outdoor playground that can hold up to 3,000 guests. The fun often gets going on Thursdays with live DJs and concerts featuring some of your favorite performers, and then continues into Friday with "Ditch Fridays" -- a good excuse if ever there was one to play a little hooky from responsibilities and enjoy some poolside fun. The Palms Pool often follows those up with Saturday and Sunday parties. Plus, last year saw the addition of Palms Pool Nighttime -- with concerts by big-name artists like Diddy.When you walk out of the Palms and into the pool area you are quickly met with two options: the tantalizing bar on the left or the sparkling pool on your right. If you opt out, at least momentarily, on a round of drinks we won't blame you, but don't worry, after you're done trying out your best Michael Phelps impersonation, you will be right on top of another bar.The third bar is located conveniently in the middle of the two pools and directly under the third pool. That's right, we said under and no, you don't have to have the air capacity of a dolphin. The third pool sits one level above and provides views of both lower level pools and parts of the Strip.The pool on the far end of the complex features a six-inch deep wading pool on two sides where you will find several lounge chairs in the water that will ensure you keep you cool when the temperature hovers in the triple digits.On the outside of the pool area are a number of other lounge chairs, daybeds and cabanas. The cabanas are a must-see just for their design. The bottom level along the far side of the pool is called the "Cave," which is fitting considering these cabanas look as if they were dug into the wall and accented with stone work on the outside. On the upper level is the "Candle," which has a tent-like top that lights up during nighttime hours.The DJ booth sits near the back pool where DJs such as Seany Mac, Exodus, Lisa Pittman and Mark Stylz are in charge. -- By Staff Member

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.
