See the Ra website for information on the upcoming DJs. I have been here quite a few times, and the resident DJs are great. Duane King was the best, though I'm not sure if he is still a resident now. Ra also hosts some of the big-name international DJs (we have seen Boy George spin here and DJ Sammy).
The cover is $20 for men and usually $10 for women, though I think on Thursday nights, women get in free, and local women always get in free.
Ra is much less glitz and glitter than either Rain or Rum Jungle, but it’s certainly not without its special effects. As you enter, the far side of the club has a gigantic ‘Ra’ god whose eyes light up with lasers throughout the evening. The sound system here is fantastic, and the DJ stand is right by the dance floor, which I like, as it causes the DJ to interact more. There are cages and podiums with go-go dancers. They are not topless but wear very little and dance more like pole dancers than true clubbers, but that’s just Vegas for you!
I like this club; it's more intimate than most. It gets crowded quickly, and if you stay through 2 or 3am, the pretty people leave, and the true clubbers remain to finish off the night Rave style.
The last time we went, they had trapeze artists swinging above the dance floor, which was fun. They even hoist you up if you want.
Like most of the clubs, the doors open at 10pm, and people will line up for usually an hour to get in. You are lining up inside the casino, though, so you will not get too hot (or cold) during the wait... in fact, you can buy a beer from nearby; it will make the time go more quickly.

The club is relatively small, and the music is fantastic. A lot of people go there since the DJs are fantastic. Be prepared for a large crowd and not a whole lot of room to dance as the night progresses. These are good times, but get there early enough to bust a move and then just line up against the wall. We met some great people from Washington, D.C. in the British Navy, and all were quite nice. It was good times and good music at Ra. Would I go there again? Yep, with steel-toed shoes on and laughing.

If you need to sit down, make your way into the roped-off VIP section. The bouncers are usually quite friendly with the ladies, and sit on the plush banquettes or within the rounded booths. Slightly raised above the dance floor, this is a good lookout for friends, cute boys or girls and general feet resting. Rah is always crowded so get there early or pretty late, otherwise you'll be waiting in a line that snakes through the casino.

Again, Go-Go girls, boots, chaps, and g-strings all over the place. Acrobats (all scantily clad), with routines on bars that descend from the ceiling. Anything goes at this place . . . you don't need to dress like a freak to get in, but you will not be allowed in with just shorts and a T-shirt. Dress for a club when you do go.
Needless to say, I stayed until 4am and loved every minute of it. My hearing recovered just a few short days later.

Our large group arrived well after midnight to the sounds of Dance and Techno. Beginning around 2, the L.A. based DJs pumped up the crowd with the best Hip-Hop I've heard in a long while.
Drinks are expensive, so come prepared.
