Waiting in line to start the night at VooDoo Lounge, it might seem like the party is going on below you. From the frantic beeping of slot machines to the roving fun of Masquerade Village that's taking place just over the railing, it's an easy mistake to make.
But the great part about VooDoo Lounge is that the party is actually above you, 51 stories up, in a place not visible just yet. And any celebration going on around a video poker machine basically pales in comparison.
After making it through the line (or skipping it with a pass), the party-hungry masses are sent to two elevators in a dimly-lit (except for black lights) lobby. Since VooDoo Lounge is still one of the more hopping clubs in town and the elevators are making a trek to the top of the building, there's usually a little bit of a wait. The best use of this time is probably to check out the menus for VooDoo Steak -- the restaurant one floor below the lounge - that adorn the walls. At the very least, it'll provide some ideas for tomorrow's dinner.
Once inside the elevator, try and grab a spot against the glass and watch the bright lights of the city grow tinier as the elevator climbs the side of the building. If you don't get a spot (or you're not tall enough to see over heads and hair-dos), take a minute to listen to the squeals and gasps coming from people that did. With the right group, even the elevator ride is a good time.
Following an elevator ride rivaled only by the diagonal ones at the Luxor , the club's secrets are unfurled slowly. A short walk through dark halls lit up by black-light voodoo drawings and you're in the club. A short walk through some doors and you're outside - still 51 stories up.
