Single and loathing in Las Vegas? While it’s known as the wedding capital of the world, Vegas features plenty of things to do for those unattached. The city has an active scene of singles looking for a fun night out on the town, so if you’re consciously uncoupled, forget the stereotypical romantic spots. There are just as many cool places to go and awesome things to do for those flying solo. Here are six of our favorites.

Spoil yourself
OK so you may not be headed out the door for a romantic date—but what about treating yourself? Book a whole day at Qua Baths & Spa for hours of rejuvenating “me time”. With its massive Roman Baths, Qua is designed for “social spa-ing,” but can easily be enjoyed solo as well. The lengthy menu of treatments ranges from dreamy hot stone massages to experiential spa journeys.

The Ayurvedic Escape package includes an herbal body mask, massage, cozy heat wrap and scalp massage with aromatherapy oil. I also love the dewy glow after the Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion facial and the exotic scents of the Fiji Ritual wrap. Add-ons and scrubs—plus the indulgent Nagomi Ritual, a Nobu-brand spa treatment—will easily fill up your day. Enjoy the stylish amenities, especially the herbal steam room and tea lounge, or take some de-stressing, feel-good fitness classes.

See some skin
Forget getting to know a potential mate’s stellar personality. You really want to just cut to the chase and see some skin right? For the ladies, “Chippendales” offers up a multitude of tanned, toned hunks that bare their souls (and perfectly chiseled assets) at their nightly show inside the Rio. Screaming like you’re at 16 at an ‘N Sync concert is welcomed, and Instagram-worthy photo ops with the performers are offered after the show.

For the guys, “X Burlesque” showcases a variety of bodacious vixens in different set-ups, plus it runs nightly at 10 p.m. (Think stripped down cowgirls and a giant champagne glass number.)

And then there’s one word that means a guaranteed good time: Britney. Guys want to date her and girls want to hang with her and blast “Stronger,” so gather up a group of your besties and hit Britney Spears’ resident Vegas show at Planet Hollywood.

Get high on happy hour
Take advantage of the “Happy Half Hour” pricing on the High Roller observation wheel. After all, it was named Vegas’ 2015 must-see attraction by “Huffington Post.” Offered daily from 4-7 p.m., the specialty Happy Hour cabins are set up with a bar and bartender inside, so you can stock up on unlimited drinks for the entire 30-minute ride. Snap some selfies and then hit The LINQ with your friends; Tilted Kilt and TAG Sports bar feature great drinks and singles scenes.

Laugh out loud
Grab a group of friends and head to something hilariously raunchy. A cult favorite Vegas show, “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace combines elements of burlesque, acrobatics, R-rated comedy and stunts in a tiny round circus tent off Roman Plaza.

Cheers!
Want to grab a few drinks but keep the night low-key? Bar-hop around some of the trendiest places in town, such as Vista Cocktail Lounge at Caesars Palace and infusion bar 3535 at The LINQ Hotel and promenade. The cool mixology combinations at 3535 could keep you and your friends there all night, downing tasty spirits such as the Thin Mint cocktail and shots of watermelon-infused vodka. Within walking distance just past the Flamingo Las Vegas hotel, hit The Cromwell and head to Bound. One of the city’s premier mixology bars, Bound features a menu of delicious sips, plus pretty champagne cocktails. Watching the cute bartenders make the drinks is just as fun as trying them. Cap it off at Fizz, a lavishly decorated bar inside Caesars Palace that’s one of the few places offering up ultra-premium champagnes by the glass.

For a wild guys night out, curate your own personal pub crawl. Start at Lobby Bar at Caesars Palace, a hip center bar where you can view the action at the tables a few steps away. The top cocktail pick here? Tennessee Highball #2, an ultra-exclusive drink made with Jack Daniels Sinatra Select Tennessee whiskey. Next, amp up the mood with a trip to O’Sheas at The LINQ. Beer pong, gambling, a live band and broadcast sports games will get you revved up to bet some big money. When you’re ready, hit Planet Hollywood’s Pleasure Pit for some blackjack. The seductive go-go dancers might distract you, but keep your eye on the jackpot, and celebrate at a big nightclub even if you don’t win.

 

Find Mr. or Mrs. Right Now
Lady Gaga and Beyoncé said it best in their smash duet, “Telephone”: “stop calling, stop calling, I don’t want to think anymore, I left my head and my heart on the dance floor.” For a scandalous night of drinking, socializing and dancing with the best views of the Vegas Strip, OMNIA, Drai’s and Chateau can’t be beat. Drai’s Beach Club & Nightclub at The Cromwell is the only rooftop nightlife experience in town, and the views 11 floors up set the scene for sparks to fly. The A-list DJ talent, posh décor and expansive indoor-outdoor space means the night gets more interesting as it goes on. Hakkasan Group-owned OMNIA Nightclub is a sprawling, high tech megaclub with an ultra lounge, mezzanine and terrace. Explore all three sections and dance the night away as Calvin Harris mans the turntables in the main room.

Nearby at the sexy Paris Las Vegas hotel, Chateau offers a seductive clubbing experience with a luxe mansion feel and terrace underneath the Eiffel Tower replica. The music is open format, so it brings a great mix of clubbers out—perfect for a night of mingling.
