Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub is Las Vegas’ newest home for electronic dance music. The 60,000 square-foot, David Rockwell-designed venue encompasses seven bars that transition patrons between three lavish rooms and variant musical experiences from resident DJs including Kaskade, Erick Morillo, ATB, Markus Schulz, Above & Beyond and more.

Drawing focus in the Main Room is a 40 foot LED DJ booth and projection stage which is surrounded by plush coliseum-style banquette seating, two dance floors and a state-of-the-art Funktion One sound system, plus elaborate performances with custom themes for each headlining DJ. Overlooking the spectacular main floor is a lavish, Library style room offering an intimate lounge experience accentuated by a fireplace, a billiard table and vintage books whose contents delve into captivating Las Vegas history ranging from gambling to showgirls.

Venturing further into the venue, club-goers will encounter the lower level Boom Box Room, an intimate boite with strip views and separate DJ. Beyond the main nightclub space, Marquee Dayclub showcases eight cabanas with individual infinity pools and 10 three-story bungalow lofts complete with living quarters and an open air party-deck. The lavish adults-only outdoor facility also features inviting sun beds, a gaming area, two pools and daytime food menu from executive chef Ralph Scamardella, all fueled by world renowned DJ talent.


The Tao Nightclub is a 10,000 square foot nightclub located in Tao at the Venetian. For the Las Vegas outpost, there is an outside terrace with Strip views, 3 Full Service Bars, Two main rooms playing a variety of hip hop, house & rock n roll.

TAO at the Venetian is more than a nightclub; it's actually a lounge, restaurant, and sushi bar all in one.

The restaurant is open seven nights a week and since the restaurant is just as popular as the club, you will not find any so-called "bar food" in here. World renowned Asian chef's, under the direction of Chef Sam Hazen, create dishes like peking duck and miso-clam soup.

Asian flair adds another area of the club where you will find a bar covered in dozens of monk statues. The rest of the club is decorated in deep red and black with several statues and accent pieces lighting your way through the dimly lit rooms and hallways. You can also take the elevator or staircase up to a second floor which includes an outdoor terrace area.
