TEMPORARILY CLOSED
Las Vegas' only gay dance club on the strip with a big city feel and (sometimes) a big city price. It opens late due to shows during the day and evening in the attached theater. Different events each night. Saturday night is CandyBar for the girls.

      Krave is @ permanently closed
      Krave originally opened on Harmon adjacent to Planet Hollywood Hotel and casino. It later moved to downtown Las Vegas into the Neonopolis. It opened as the world largest gay bar. It closed sometime later due to difficulties with their liquor license. It is permanently closed

      No energy at KRAVE
      Which is interesting with the root word rave in the name. We've been there three times, and each time the same...most people standing or sitting around in little groups, only 5 or 6 people dancing. They say on the strip, which is true, but pulled way back into an area where you'd walk right past it if you weren't searching for it. As a Las Vegas local, we'd recommend you skip it.

      Closed... Maybe...?
      I've visited Las Vegas in May 2014. I checked the website before going and it was operational and had events listed. When I got to the address all I found was a dark building that appeared to have a sign that once said Krave but was now covered by a banner. I then called the number on the website got many rings and then voicemail I then text the number which the website said you could do but got no reply

      it's ok
      First off this place is hard to find. Not at the Planet Hollywood or at the downtown location anymore. It's on the backside of the strip center across from the Monte Carlo in a converted theater. The venue is ok but the dj was playing top 40 on repeat. Stay three hours and you will hear wreckingball six times! Cover was $20 which seems steep considering the total experience. Drinks were about $13 which feels normal for the strip. The staff was hot and had some dancers for entertainment. It's ok if you're looking to get out and you are staying close in the strip.

      Krave is reopening on the Strip!
      I never had a horrible experience at Krave and miss it. I'm excited to hear it is returning to the Las Vegas Strip.

      100% Absolutely Worst Place Ever - Don't Waste Your Time
      After doing some research I head down to the Fremont Street area to find the two gay bars located there - Krave & Drink/Drag. Both are evidently owned or operated by the same group as they claim to be so much and yet are absolutely NOTHING! Worst admission experience at any bar in all of North America (and Yes, I have traveled to all the major cities). At both location, I was told that I had to pay a penalty admission fee for "not being local". WTF? Where I am from, we roll out the red carpet for visitor and do our best to make them feel at home! Krave actually charged a $20 cover at 1:00 AM ($10 if you were local). When I got in, a Jack and Coke was $11 (Again, WTF!) The facility is nothing more than a "out of business" multi-plex movie theater with the old concession stand serving as the make-shift bar and one of the large screen auditoriums with the seats removed served as a make-shift dance floor. Cheap lighting, sticky floors, and bad DJ music along with a handful of people for a Saturday night at 1:00 AM did not make for an exciting time. A good business operator would know that you build business by offering free admission via some marketing tools like Facebook, etc... and geez... offer some decent drink prices. A Jack and Coke should only be $5, maybe $6... but never $11. And did I mention that my $11 drink came in a Solo Plastic cup... LOL!!!

      what a crappy night
      One of the worst gay clubs I have ever been to. The drinks were really expensive so was entry fee! It was a Saturday night and it was quite empty. The music was whack and so was the sound system left with a head ache. Drag queens were pretty shocking as well, Are drag shows are meant to have some humour to them? Not drag queens lip syncing REALLY badly and dancing out of time with each other to the pussycat dolls. We only stayed for about an hour shortly after the drag show is we were bored, I am never the first one to leave a party, but I did this night..

      don't go
      Charged twenty dollar cover -- 14 dollars are well drinks-- no place to sit unless you pay for VIP -- most people in the club worked there -- I will never go back-- this at the Rio--

      Krave has moved - no longer on the Strip
      It is now downtown - 450 Fremont #370 - but using a big tent until the new digs are completed.
