Some clubs like to tout their extravagance and their exuberance by calling themselves "mega-clubs" or "ultra-lounges" or maybe even the odd "discotech-mageddon." We may have made up that last one. But other clubs don't need to hyperbolize. They simply name themselves something ubiquitous, commanding and not at all pompous -- something like "LiFE."
Even with the capitals all around you, you'll never feel like a little "i" at this club. LiFE is expertly designed, superbly laid out and a treat for all the senses. From the abundant tables to poles and the spacious dance floor, everything is centered upon the DJ space behind which is displayed -- without a hint of irony -- the "LiFE" logo. It's immediately obvious who this club is for.
DJs have become so popular in recent years that LiFE has emerged as a club to which they can aspire. The sound system is both loud (like everything in SLS Las Vegas) and sublime at the same time. While some clubs can give you bass that shakes your ribcage or treble that hurts your ears, LiFE has built a system that sounds the way every club should -- shaking yet soulful. Since the space is actually the old Sahara showroom, everything about LiFE feels like you're in the audience of your own adventure. And it completely does justice to the music choices.
No club on the Las Vegas Strip is ever going to go seriously deep. People want to hear whatever remix is playing everywhere else so they can sing that one part they know when the DJ breaks it for them. But LiFE is at least bringing us a bit closer to some house and trance than we've seen in a long time. So if you care about the quality of the music you sort of hear while getting wasted and grinding on strangers, LiFE is the place to be.
In addition to the music, LiFE has plenty of tables with enough space to invite over the cutie you spotted by the bar, or to invite yourself to someone else's party by just sitting down and pretending to know them. And the high ceiling even has riggings for the aerialists and performers who occasionally grace the sky inside. So score a seat however and wherever you can. This is one club you'll want to savor for as much of your own life as possible.
