Las Vegas is world famous for its party vibe and nonstop nightlife. From the pulsating nightclub dance floors to the chilled intimacy of the ultra lounges, there’s something enticing for all visitors. Want to make the most of your nightlife experience? Here are five tips to help you save money and avoid hassle, as well as make the right choices when it comes to picking a party spot.
Some bars and clubs in Las Vegas are laid back and you can wear anything you like (i.e., places like Carnaval Court at Harrah’s or the Rockhouse Bar & Nightclub at the Imperial Palace). However, many of the ultra lounges and upscale clubs–the ones with doormen–are likely to have dress codes. Clothing like tennis shoes, shorts, tank tops, baseball caps and flip-flops are not acceptable, even if you are famous. If you don’t want to put on a suit or sexy dress, jeans are usually okay, as long as you wear them with style. This means collared shirts and dress shoes for men, and chic tops, jewelry and stilettos for women.
If you want to save on the cost of cover charges as well as avoid long lines at the most popular clubs, go early. Most places don’t get going or charge admission until after 10 p.m. For instance, if you go to Mix Lounge atop THEhotel at Mandalay Bay around 6 p.m., you can get a drink and sit on a sofa near the balcony. When it’s 10 p.m., you’ll probably be asked to move to make room for VIPs and bottle service, but you won’t have to leave the club.
Get Bottle Service
If you’re part of a large group and plan to stay in one nightclub for the evening, it will benefit you to make a reservation for bottle service. First off, this is an easy way to guarantee entrance to a club. You’ll even be able to skip the long line and go right in. Although bottle service is very expensive, if you split the cost among six to 10 people, the price drops significantly. Most tables are situated with easy access to the dance floor. Instead of standing in the crowd, you’ll be able to sit down whenever you get tired.
In Las Vegas, tips make the town go round. Everyone you come into contact with is ripe for a tip, from the hosts to the cocktail servers and bartenders. It’s important to take care of the people who take care of you. Plus, good tipping will transform you from Average Joe status to a VIP.
Go on a Nightlife Tour
If you’d like to check out several Las Vegas hotspots in one evening, there’s a company that can help you out. Nite Tours offers four great packages for visitors who want to party: the VIP Limo Club Crawl, the VIP Limo Ladies Night Out, the Walking Club Crawl and the Custom Club Crawl. One major benefit is that you can drink as much as you want without worrying about driving. Through special arrangements, you’ll also get to skip the entry lines and walk right into the clubs. Prices are reasonable and start around $39 per person. For more information call (877) 600-6483.
