The easiest way to describe Hakkasan Las Vegas is to say it is Vegas big. Not just a large nightclub, Hakkasan is a complex of nightlife and entertainment. You'll find yourself lounging, dancing, eating and mingling in so many different spaces that if you are as intrigued as I am you'll never stop moving. You'll also find that it can get very expensive so you might want to find someone who knows someone to help you pay for it all.

Hakkasan Las Vegas:
There are 5 levels but it might feel like 4 because the restaurant has 2 of those levels. That's not important, what is important is that you have plenty of options from chilling out VIP style in the Ling Ling lounge where you may just find a spot to sit and socialize or the intimate Ling Ling Club which is a regular Las Vegas nightclub that might fit what you are looking for a bit more than the main room. It feels like an ultra lounge but with a bit more flair. The main room along with the mezzanine is where most of the action is and it is very impressive.
Head upstairs to the mezzanine and get a bit more of the VIP feel while looking out over the entire dance floor or stay on the main level and feel the energy of a massive Las Vegas nightclub.
When is Hakkasan open:
The restaurant is open nightly at 5pm and the nightclub is open Thursday - Sunday 10pm until closing.
Reservations and Tables:
Table Reservations call 702 891 7888
Dress Code: You do need to look good so make sure you have your nightclub clothing. Don't wear those khaki pants that you think look cool on casual Fridays. Hakkasan is the Las Vegas nightclub experience that is as big as it gets so make sure to do your best to look good.
What it's like:
I could tell you to have dinner there and it would be an impressive journey into some fine Chinese cuisine but instead I'll suggest you start at one of the many other restaurants at MGM Grand. Why, do I say that? You'll come back for dinner at Hakkasan when your priority is not the nightclub.You'll have a meal there when you can really relax and take it all in. Your first time has to be all about the nightlife. Make sure to get into the Ling Ling Lounge and have a drink as their cocktail is very impressive.
Also stand in the center of the main room and feel the energy. It's about as good as it gets on most every night.
Suggestions for Hakkasan Las Vegas:
Unless you have a large bankroll do not go for the VIP experience. It's crazy expensive. Get there early in order to get in faster and have a drink at Ling Ling first before the crowds swell.
