Drais, the super-swank dance palace atop the W Hotel Hollywood is an unmatched extrasensory experience ($15 million worth). Vegas impresario Victor Drai (and partners Cy & Jesse Waits) have created a stunner of a club: go-go gals writh on gilded stripper-pole lamps, plush and roomy booths abound, opulent textures, mirrors and lighting gleam everywhere, and there's an outdoor pool area with cabana furniture to rival any ritzy living room. The kicker is the view, which - if you peek between the curtains that surround the place or go out on the main balcony - is incredible and almost vertigo-inducing (at least after a $15 cocktail). It may have one of the toughest doors in town, but that doesn't mean there's a lack of douchey dudes and lycra-wrapped ladies here like everywhere else. Luckily, the Metro station is right next to the entrance.
