RPM, Tropicana’s new nightclub, opened on New Year’s Eve with a two-day blowout, and it hasn’t stopped partying since.

Open from 10:30 p.m. until 4 a.m. daily, the club prides itself on being an interactive experience for guests, with special performances by recording artists, DJs, dancers and other acts. DJ Hollywood — named DJ of the Year multiple times by Las Vegas Weekly readers — spins regularly on Wednesdays. Mary J. Blige performed during the opening festivities, and Sean Kingston was set to celebrate his birthday at RPM Saturday with a live performance.

Order a favorite cocktail from one of the club’s three bars or grab a bottle of Champagne from the “Spirit Goddess,” whom you will either find sitting on her lighted swing or mingling with guests on the packed dance floor. For those who want to party and play at the same time, RPM brings a bit of the casino into the club with three blackjack tables and roulette. This nightclub is the first in Vegas to include a gaming lounge.

The club has also become a popular venue for celebrity birthday bashes, including Jordin Sparks of “American Idol” and Evan Peters of “American Horror Story.”

For fans of “Jersey Shore,” Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, who will be attending MAGIC to support clothing brand Headrush, will host a party at RPM on Valentine’s Day. Headrush will show its 2012 line and Sorrentino’s brother, Marc “The Man” Sorrentino, will DJ.
