Cirque du Soleil and nightclubs. They go together like spaghetti and acrobats. OK, maybe they go together a little better than that. That could get messy. Stop picturing that and start picturing a sort of '50s inspired lounge and nightclub that feels like the reason so many supervillains try to steal gold.
The pillars are gold. There's gold on the walls. They'd probably make the chairs out of gold if they didn't think people in short skirts would stick to them. But until they fix that problem the plush leather will do. It's all the backdrop for a gilded club full of extravagant performers and an atmosphere that screams bedazzled beauty.
Since Gold opens in the evening, it gradually transitions from a chill vibe to a bit more of a full-on nightclub party atmosphere over the course of the night, with the playlist (and DJ) reflecting that throughout the evening. All that makes it the perfect place to start out the evening before a late show or pregame after an early show before hitting the town. However you choose to enjoy it, Gold is one of those spots in Vegas that's great to return to on different nights and different times. You never known how the gold will be shining in the future.
