When you're not quite of legal drinking age, much of Las Vegas is off limits. You must be over 21 to enter casinos and most night clubs. Some concert halls, however, hold venues open to anyone over age 18. Some strip clubs will allow you to enter, but not allow you to enter the bar area. One club serves the Vegas area and caters only to those under 21.
House of Blues
The House of Blues is a posh venue located inside Mandalay Bay. The stadium style balcony is a great place to catch some popular musicians. The Crossroads restaurant in the House of Blues is open seven days a week. There's even a tattoo parlor if you're feeling a little brave and want a special souvenir. More than 300 pieces of folk art adorn the walls and 50,000 bottle caps make up the entrance mural. The House of Blue is open Sunday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to midnight and from 7:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
