Blah, there’s nothing special here. I went to Club Rio with my boyfriend on a Friday during the slowest week of the year (before Christmas). We went at about 12:45 to 1:30am, and it was pretty boring because not even half of the dance floor was filled. I was annoyed at the two hired girls dancing on the podiums because they weren't very good dancers, and the DJ was very typical, you know, the kind that can't mix from one song into the next. The music was Top 40, very typical of any club. The crowd (if you could call it that) seemed to mostly be in the 18 to 21 age group.
Overall, Club Rio just didn't have its own ambience like everything else in Vegas does. There just wasn't anything about it that made us want to our spend time or money there. It felt like we could get a club experience like this almost anywhere in the US.
The positive was the floor layout, ideal for a club. It’s a circular room with three stepped outer rings (with tables and chairs open to everyone) looking down on the dance floor in the center. The DJ is up on a stage to one side of the room, mirrored by a bar on the opposite side. Video screens all around the outer walls project shadowy images of their bad dancer girls. The drink prices weren't bad, either. Maybe it was just the time of year we went, but I would rather explore other places than back to Club Rio again.
Open at 11pm Thursday and 11:30pm Friday and Saturday in the Scinta Showroom. Call 702/777-7977.

Club Rio was an enjoyable experience and a place I would return to. It was fun, the cover charge wasn't outrageous, and did I say it was fun!?
