Big name celebrities, concerts, parties, fireworks and sundown to sunup fun, New Year's Eve in Las Vegas will not disappoint if you are looking for the ultimate destination to bring in 2012.
1 OAK will be making its debut on New Year's Eve at the Mirage with Fergie hosting the festivities and Jesse Marco providing the music. The New York edition of 1 OAK was such a hit that they decided to bring it to Las Vegas and under the masterful hand of The Light Group, nothing but a magical experience should be expected from this 16,000 square foot nightclub.
The Light Group has an incredible lineup at the rest of their Las Vegas venues, providing you with a great assortment of clubbing and dining experiences. You can find Bruno Mars at The Bank and LMFAO at Haze Nightclub at ARIA just to get things started. If you are looking for a dining experience to equal the Las Vegas New Year's Eve experience you can visit Yellowtail, Stack, Fix, Union and Brand. Good luck deciding, but for my money give me the view of the Las Vegas Strip from Yellowtail at midnight and you can't go wrong.

The Palms Casino Resort has made sure you don't have to leave the building as they have so many parties going on New Year's Eve, once you are there, you are not going anywhere else. John Legend is going to kick things off with a concert at the Pearl and then will host the official after party at Moon Nightclub. How about Paul Oakenfold's final performance of his internationally-acclaimed show at Rain Nightclub. Paul always puts on a one-of-a-kind experience, so you can just imagine what he has lined up for this special evening. If that is not enough, the Palms is throwing in a few Playmates to make the evening complete. The Playmates will be hosting at the Playboy Club with DJ and Mexico Edition Playmate Alie Layus providing the music. Miss Nevada USA Sarah Chapman will be hosting at ghostbar, where you not only have one of the hottest clubs in Vegas, but you will have some of the best views of the fireworks anywhere.
