The Costa Smeralda wears its ritziness on its sleeve: Million-dollar yachts jam the harbor, women sport expensive baubles, and everyone gets an eyeful of the Aga Khan. So, of course, when the overly affluent are bitten by the nightlife bug, they head to a club known simply as Billionaire (why mince words?). Located near the harbor of Porto Cervo, the intimate club is awash in low lighting, Persian rugs, and gorgeous women—no doubt drawn by the presence of the club's owner, former Formula One team manager and serial modelizer Flavio Briatore.
Velvet Rope Factor: Ridiculous. Book ahead for a table and be prepared to unfold that money clip. Aim for the "I'm rich and I know it look" (even if you aren't). Guys, unbutton your Gucci shirt to a just-this-side-of-respectable degree; ladies, pack your sexiest, most altitudinous heels.
In Good Company: Ultrarich Italians (fashion heir Margherita Missoni, recent World Cup winner Francesco Totti) and their globetrotting, paparazzi-dodging friends (David Beckham, Denzel Washington).
Hey, Mr. DJ: An international mix of DJs equals an eclectic dance-a-thon. Think lots of pop mishmashed with electronica to inspire even the fattest cat to the floor. The club calls it ""happy music"." Indeed.

When to Go: It's only open for the summer, namely the last day of June through the first week of September.
