How to Celebrate a Las Vegas Labor Day Weekend

Friends at Las Vegas Labor Day Weekend Pool Party

As Labor Day marks the unofficial end of Summer, it also marks one of the best holiday weekends to visit Las Vegas. Pool parties, DJs, bar crawls, delicious food, and more all await you to help celebrate the unofficial end of summer – even though the season lasts quite a bit longer here in Vegas. Find what to do and what to expect for an epic Labor Day Weekend in Vegas!


What to Do in Vegas for Labor Day Weekend


Hit Up the Pools

Las Vegas pools are a no-brainer when it comes to celebrating Labor Day Weekend. Is there anything more iconic than a pool party to wrap up the summer? From day to night, the city is sure to be making a splash at the many pools all weekend long. The great thing about our pools is that Vegas is a fan of variety. You want a giant pool party? We have those. Want a sports-filled Labor Day Weekend by the pool? Circa Stadium Swim® is the ultimate getaway. Or want to just lounge by the pool while you recover from the night before? There’s no shame in hitting up a spa.


Go to the Club

Labor Day Weekend in Vegas immediately sets the party tone, and the clubs are the ones embracing it the most. Holiday weekends bring in big crowds, which also means big talent. After a slow summer last year, Vegas is back and ready to party. Expect incredible shows from artists such as Gucci Mane, Steve Aoki, Illenium, Nora En Pure, Deorro, Lil Wayne, Marshmello, Martin Garrix, Lil Jon, Fisher, Wiz Khalifa, Kaskade, and much more. With so much going on, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to pack a few going-out looks to keep it fresh.


Enjoy a Rooftop Bar

Summertime means sunshine, and what better place to soak up that sun than at a rooftop bar with a cocktail in hand to cool you down from the Vegas heat? Celebrate Labor Day Weekend on top of the world overlooking the beautiful Nevada desert. If being out in the sun isn’t for you, we have some great news. Not only are our rooftop bars great during the day, but they’re also somehow even better at sunset and at night. Check out Legacy Club at Circa Resort for the most spectacular golden hour and the prettiest views of the Strip at night.


Friends Having Las Vegas Bar Crawl for Labor Day Weekend


Have a Bar Crawl

If going to a rooftop bar isn’t necessarily your style, make it a little more casual (but just as fun) by doing a bar crawl. With a lot of people visiting for the weekend, this is the best way for people to watch while getting to explore the city’s many bars. Bar crawls also give you some great opportunities to meet people. And meeting people means more friends to celebrate with! From Las Vegas breweries to exciting cocktail bars, there’s something for everyone to enjoy on a Labor Day Weekend bar crawl.


Ditch the Backyard Barbecue

At home, the end of summer is usually accompanied by a backyard barbecue with family or friends. Unfortunately, traveling with a grill to Vegas isn’t the easiest thing – unless you book a Golden Gate Las Vegas penthouse where a grill is already waiting for you. Fortunately, Vegas has everything you need to make up for your home barbecue with hot dogs at American Coney Island, burgers at Victory Burger, and Carolina barbecue from Project BBQ. If you’re a fancy grillmaster with steaks, Andiamo Steakhouse and Barry’s Downtown Prime will easily satisfy that craving.


Escape in Nature

Las Vegas might be the ultimate spot for partying, especially for Labor Day Weekend. But if you’re looking for a more low-key celebration this year away from the crowds, you can escape into the beauty of nature around the city. Swap out your club outfits and cocktails for some hiking boots and some water for a unique Vegas Labor Day Weekend experience. It might not be your typical type of celebration with alcohol and partying, but a nice summer hike can definitely still be considered a celebration of the unofficial end of summer.


Friends Celebrating Labor Day Weekend in Downtown Las Vegas


What to Expect for Labor Day in Las Vegas


As with any holiday weekend in Las Vegas, expect it to be a party! This means higher crowds than usual, sometimes higher prices, and always higher fun. If you aren’t quite ready to be in crowds just yet, be sure to check out activities that are outdoors or with a smaller capacity. If you are ready for the ultimate celebration after our first summer back, then you’re in the right place. Las Vegas is sure to be celebrating hard this Labor Day Weekend, and well past it through September.


If you want to be surrounded by the action without being overwhelmed by the crowds at the Strip, staying in Downtown Las Vegas is the best place to be. Not only can you easily get to the Strip, but you’ll also have easy access to the new Circa Resort and Stadium Swim, free live music from 3 Doors Down and Seether, unique bars and restaurants, and so much more. Book a room at Golden Gate Hotel for the best Vegas Labor Day Weekend you’ll ever have!
