21 Fun Places To Go For Your Birthday In Las Vegas

Last Updated:

After partying my 20s off in Vegas, I’m proud to say I know a thing or two about how to celebrate a birthday in Las Vegas!

In total, I’m pretty sure I’ve celebrated my 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, etc. birthdays in Sin City. Who could blame me, I was totally obsessed with how fun and entertaining the city was!

While I haven’t thrown myself a birthday trip to Vegas in a good minute, I have gone there more times than I can count since I’ve turned 30. Over the years, I’ve discovered so many new things to do in Las Vegas — many of which are perfect as birthday activities.

It seems like every month, some new attraction, show, or trendy restaurant pops up to grace the entertainment scene here. So yeah, the birthday entertainment options are nearly endless.

Of course, there’s the classic route you could take by having dinner and hitting up a premium nightclub after. Or, you could get creative and transport yourself into the trippy psychadelic world of Omega Mart. And if that’s not exciting enough, you could always throw on fur coats and party it up in a bar completely made out of ice.

And that’s just the beginning! Discover all the cool places you could go for your birthday in Las Vegas below.


XS, Marquee, Zouk, or OMNIA

Clubbing is probably the #1 thing people do when celebrating their bdays in Las Vegas!

After your birthday dinner, it’s time to hit the clubs on the Strip! Round out your special day with a night of dancing and music at Las Vegas clubs like XS at EncoreZouk at Resorts WorldOMNIA at Caesars Palace, or Marquee at The Cosmopolitan.

If it’s 4 am and you find the clubs closing but you’re not yet ready to call it a night, head to Drai’s After Hours at The Cromwell for even more late-night (or rather early morning) partying.

Kamu Ultra Lounge

KAMU Ultra Karaoke located inside The Venetian Las Vegas stands out as the only VIP party lounge on the Strip, boasting 40 uniquely themed private karaoke rooms tailored for group parties who want to karaoke the night away.

The private suites are so much fun — you may end up with the galaxy-themed room or even a Dragonball suite. And to round out your experience and make it Vegas-style, you can opt for bottle service (or order drinks separately) and order food there too.

You can also level up the birthday festivities with balloons, flowers, and cake decorations, which the Kamu team will gladly set up if reserved at least two days in advance.

Mayfair Supper Club

If a fancy and swanky dinner experience is what you’re after on your special day, Mayfair Supper Club should be at the top of your list.

The Mayfair Supper Club at Bellagio is a unique and theatrical dining experience inspired by top supper clubs around the world, promising a return to the glamorous eras of Las Vegas and old New York.

Located against the backdrop of the iconic Fountains of Bellagio, this trendy yet nostalgically-themed restaurant offers a feast for the senses with impeccable food presentations, drink selections, and endless entertainment complete with a live band, dancers, and vocalists.

If you’re here on Fridays and Saturdays, the Mayfair After Dark experience (from 11:00 PM to 1:00 AM) is a must. Sundays are when they have their swanky jazz dinner!

minus5 Ice Bar

Beat the heat at minus5 Ice Bar, a winter wonderland of 100 tons of custom-carved ice, complete with drinking glasses, walls, seats, and sculptures made of ice. This is the one place where your beer actually gets colder as you drink it!

Ice Bar is a ton of fun when it comes to photos because they give you fur coats to stay warm while you’re in the bar. These fur coats are going to be perfect for your selfies and your commemorative birthday IG post.

There are locations at The LINQ, The Venetian, and Mandalay Bay.

The Neon Museum

If you ever wondered where all the old Vegas signs have disappeared off to over the years, check out the Neon Museum, where you’ll find more than 200 of them gathered.

The Neon Boneyard is the main outdoor exhibition area where you can find a collection of over 200 vintage neon signs including those from old casinos, motels, and businesses.

It’s such a picturesque spot for photos that ooze Old Vegas vibes! You can get lots of cute bday photos here with retro lit-up signage in the background.

Watch one of the many shows in Las Vegas

Las Vegas has a world-class theater scene. From burlesque to magic, Cirque de Soleil to comedy, there is a show for every type of person and every sort of budget. And the best part is, there’s a show happening every single night in Vegas.

A few shows that we think are perfect for a birthday celebration include:

Awakening – The Wynn’s brand-new spectacular production features fantastical creatures, dazzling visuals, a compelling narrative, and a touch of lighthearted comedy.

“O” at Bellagio: Another mesmerizing Cirque du Soleil show, “O” combines water, acrobatics, and theatrical performances to create a unique and romantic experience.

And if you want to get crazy, there are some pretty hilarious and wild tease shows like MAGIC MIKE LIVEThe ChippendalesX Burlesqueand FANTASY. One that’s great for both guys and gals is Absinthe! All are perfect for celebrating with a large group of friends.

The Sphere

If you’ve driven on the highways of Las Vegas (or have been on social media at all), chances are you’ve seen The Sphere. The Sphere Experience is a two-part multi-sensory experience lasting approximately two hours. In all honesty, it’s two hours of immersive amazement.

First, you’ll get to explore The Atrium. There’s a 360-degree avatar capture, a mesmerizing 50-foot holographic installation, and a few other cool tech features.

Then, brace yourself for an immersive cinematic experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen with Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Postcard from Earth.’ This specially commissioned film is a sci-fi portrait of our planet, leveraging Sphere’s cutting-edge technologies to transport you to new worlds without ever leaving your seat. 

Omega Mart at AREA15

AREA15 has got to be one of the coolest additions to Las Vegas, like ever.

This 200,000-square-foot immersive art collective is buzzing with all things creative and imaginative. Throw an ax or two, play games at Emporium arcade bar, wander through a ‘supermarket’ that makes you question reality, take in high-tech / colorful art installations, or explore one of the many virtual reality experiences.

From retro to futuristic to totally trippy, there’s an experience for everyone at AREA15. Learn more about the current exhibits here (many of them require separate tickets).

If you find yourself experiencing sensory overload like we did and are having trouble choosing what to do, we recommend you start with Omega Mart by Meow Wolf. You can expect to spend 3 to 5 hours inside this attraction alone!

You’ll be entering a glitchy, interdimensional grocery store filled with mind-bending products, mysterious portals, and trippy landscapes that come together to make up a really cool interactive art installation.

Throw a pizza party at Happy Camper

LIFTOFF at AREA15

If Strip views from behind a glass window are simply not enough for you, we want to invite you to hop on LIFTOFF at AREA15.

If incorporating views into your birthday itinerary is not enough excitement for you, another great option is to head to the observation tower at The STRAT. The SkyPod here is what makes it so much fun. You can ride some really crazy, adrenaline-pumping rides while getting those epic Las Vegas views!

Big Shot shoots you 160 feet into the air at 45 mph, while X-Scream teeter-totters you over the Tower’s edge from a dizzying height of 866 feet.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club

For a darn good birthday full of memorable laughs, we’d recommend going to a comedy show while you’re in Vegas!

In Vegas, Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club stands as a comedy night staple, inviting some of the best comics to its stages since it first arrived on the Las Vegas Strip. Cap off the evening by having a festive dinner with drinks at one of the many restaurants at the LINQ Hotel & Promenade, conveniently next to the club.

Three other popular comedy club venues in Vegas are The Comedy Cellar at Rio, Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at MGM Grand, and LA Comedy Club at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod.

All of these comedy clubs have featured some of the biggest names in comedy (like Aziz Ansari and Tiffany Haddish), so you may very well come across a special guest that you’ve seen on TV performing at these clubs!
