When they say that Las Vegas is a city of excess, they must be thinking of the club at Encore Las Vegas. XS earned the top spot on Nightclub & Bar Magazine?s Top 100 list, ousting Tao. And this club goes the extra mile with a glitter-laden tile staircase at the entrance, gold-plated molds of naked women, a gold-plated 10-foot chandelier that rotates over the 1,100-square-foot dance floor and VIP booths donned with gold-embossed crocodile skin. Splurge on the Ono, a $10,000 cocktail made with Dom Peringon Oenoth?que champagne and Louis XIII de Remy Martin Black Pearl cognac and served with men?s sterling silver cufflinks embossed with a stingray and a raised XS logo and a women?s 18-karat white-gold chain with a black pearl pendant and XS logo. The party spills out onto the pool area, giving XS a whopping 40,000 square feet of play room. Excessive, indeed.
