Heavenly parties like few others. After skiing a full day, the party crowd heads to the Tamarack Lodge for a proper après hour at Unbuckle, and from there it’s time to hit the casinos on the Nevada side. Rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat. You can sleep when you’re dead, right? It can be a hard act to follow day in and day out, but the incredible memories you’ll make are worth it. If rowdy bar scenes, playing craps late into the night, chic lounges and world-class performances sound like the perfect add-on to your ski vacation, then Heavenly nightlife will undeniably please any party animal.
Harvey’s Lake Tahoe is the area’s original hotel-casino. Lovers of tequila and classic rock will have a ball at the legendary Cabo Wabo Cantina. Harvey’s is the place to go for big, sell-out performances., so be sure to check the concert schedule ahead of time. Gamblers can take their chances on a game of blackjack, keno, poker, slots or table games.
Heavenly casinos exist only on the Nevada side of South Lake Tahoe, so that’s where the night hawks head. Each of Lake Tahoe’s five casinos offers a unique experience and vibe. Harrah’s Lake Tahoe is considered the “chill” casino, because it’s gambling and concerts are more low-key, with smaller acts, and the choice between roulette and slots. If it’s possible to have a more quiet gambling experience, Harrah’s is it.
If you’re looking to mingle with local Lake Tahoeans, then Lakeside Inn and Casino is where your headed. Since it’s the local’s favorite, you can bet that Lakeside’s cocktails, bar scene, happy hour and restaurants have been well reviewed. Staying power and a good reputation are two great reasons to your luck at Lakeside. Casino-goers on the hunt for the ultimate Lake Tahoe part experience will love the area’s newest hotel-casino, MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa.

Horizon Casino one of the better options for entertainment and live performances, with its Aspen Bar, a karaoke and live concert stage, the Golden Cabaret and an incredible illusion show.
