Here's a fun game: announce to your party that you've reserved a table at the nightclub at the Golden Nugget. Then, wait and see how long it takes for someone to start in with their best Kanye West voice.
Don't see the correlation? Did we forget to mention that the club's name is Gold Diggers? Ah, there it is.
In fact, you're likely to hear some Kanye West during your night, or some Justin Timberlake or some Prince. Or some...really you're likely to hear just about anything you can dance to.
The club is part of Downtown's blossoming nightlife scene and brings its own unique atmosphere to the party.
Spread out in a long, skinny, vaguely rectangular shape, Gold Diggers offers a killer patio with a killer view at the front (from the club's second-story location, you get a look at the Fremont Street Experience, both the people and the awesome show on the canopy overhead) and space for a DJ and the accompanying dancing crowds in the back.
A red-backed bar, complete with cute ladies dancing atop it, runs about half the length of the inside space, while a square bar keeps those on the patio from going thirsty.
And with all the great music pouring from Gold Diggers' speakers, it would be a shame to not have a little space for some hip-shaking. Luckily, a sizeable dance floor sits near the stage in the back.
Gold Diggers isn't the largest club around, but it works to the benefit of the crowd. In the more intimate space, you can have a conversation (although, let's be honest, you might still have to raise your voice a little) and the view from the patio goes a long way toward making things feel open and not cramped.
If the view just isn't doing it for you -- really? -- there are television screens scattered around the club playing music videos and if you happen to see Kanye up there, strutting his stuff, you can raise your glass and disagree: being a gold digger isn't so bad after all.
