This lounge gives justice to the word sexy, and it sure is inviting. Have stunning model servers delight you with classic cocktails. With all the interactive projections, low tables, and couches, you will be tempted to dance the night away on every surface.
The intimate ambiance oozes with sex appeal you’ll never experience anywhere else in Vegas. When Tabú at MGM Grand was launched in 2003 referring to itself as an “ultralounge,” it kind of confused clubgoers but long story short, it’s a place you would want to be in.
Tabú is small. It can’t even accommodate over 400 partygoers. Intimate it is! The upside to this is that you wouldn’t have to do a walkathon just to look for a friend or perhaps a bar.
Expensive accents are scattered everywhere. The club also has a stunning sound system, technologically-inclined table tops, and some other interesting details. The staff is more than pleasing to the eye. Servers at Tabú are models and former models. You might even recognize a few faces.
Although the space is small people can do what they wish to. They are free to dance virtually in any spot they fancy, be it booths, table tops, and so on. If you’re not confident in your dancing skills, Tabú offers some discreet areas in which you can dance the night away sans worrying about being laughed at, which doesn’t really happen at clubs where people are typically buzzed. You have to shell out more cash on this though.
Drinks at Tabú are always cold, courtesy of their climate-controlled refrigeration system. Bottle service is generally worth every cent. The music in Tabú is dynamic. It changes depending on the night. But for the most part, house music rules in this nightclub.
Tabú is a place you just have to experience yourself. The line outside is not too long if you come early, and the crowd is extremely accessible and personable.
