How to get into a Las Vegas Club March 15, 2009

If have ever tried to enjoy the Las Vegas nightlife, you know the lines can be crazy!! For some people, they spend their whole night standing in line – and not even getting into the club of their choice. Unfortunate, but not uncommon. The following is a quick way of getting around the hours of endless waiting and getting up to the red rope.

For the LADIES ONLY GROUPS:

If you are going to a club with just the ladies .. your chances of getting into the club without waiting in endless lines just went up! The clubs rely on lots of girls going to their clubs, so groups of girls are a must for a successful club night. Think about it – guys are more likely to wait and pay to get into a club if they see groups of hot girls going in.

If you can decide early in the day – go to the hotel of your desired club during the day. Go to the club entrance – there is usually a VIP host or some promoter looking for girls like you. Talk to them and tell them that you have a group of ONLY girls… and that you are there for whatever occasion. More times than not, they will just give you comp tickets or just tell you to contact them when you get to the door. If they tell you that they will put you on a guest list – make sure you get their cell phone number. (Make sure you have the promoter’s name and number handy for when you get to the club .. just in case). Enjoy the rest of your day and get ready for a fun night out! Once you get to the club just text the promoter that you are there – that way the promoter can direct you to the right person – of just come get you 🙂 VIP

If you are last minute – as most girls are – you will probably not even think about what club you are going to visit .. until the guest lists are closed. Get ready as quickly as possible. (Although Vegas clubs don’t close until 4am or later, don’t walk up to a club at 12:30 expecting to waltz right in.) Go to the club of your choice – find the person in charge of bottle / table service. If they are unavailable or swamped with table reservations – try to get the attention of the person with the guest list or the guy behind the rope. Grab their attention – be nice. Remember- these guys see girls all day long – they will NOT respond to snobby, bitchy (excuse my language) girls. Catch their attention and call them over. Tell them that it’s “me plus (number in your group) girls — no guys… we were told that you’d be able to take care of us” … Most of the time they will let you in after the next large group… HAVE FUN!!!

For the Co-Ed Girl Guy Groups:

Rules here are pretty simple: Put the girls in the front – try to get more girls than guys (even if you have to find a few randoms)

Most clubs have a 2:1 ratio rule: 2 girls to every guy that enters the club. So if you are in a group of guy and gals, make sure you make the girls visible to the promoters. It always helps to slip a little money to the bouncer- but not necessary if you have a lot of girls – few guys .. or a lot of hot girls and nice guys. Guys: Don’t act like you are the*ish – Again … promoters in Vegas don’t have time to deal with arrogant – i’m the *ish type guys.


For the GUYS group:

Best advice: GET A TABLE. That will benefit you in so many ways .. Faster service, more drinks, and more girls. If you can’t get a table – do the following:

FIND GIRLS

Once again, Vegas clubs are known for hot girls and the 2 girl 1 guy ratio. If you are guy with no pull at the club you are going to – you are going to have to pay cover. Sorry boys .. it’s just how it works. Go to the regular line and pick up some girls – most of the time you won’t find any… So – leave the immediate entrance of the club -walk into the hotel – and look for girls who look like they are going to the club…. invite them to join you. Again – you are going to have to pay – so you may / may not have to pay for their cover charges as well… Once you find the girls

Find a bouncer – preferably someone that is already behind the rope. Tell him that you have girls with you – and most likely – you will have to slip him some money. Even though this option may be a bit more costly … you won’t have to wait as long – as you will be able to enjoy the club, not just the club entrance.

No matter what kind of group you are in – guys only, girls only, mix… remember one thing. This is Vegas. The bouncers and promoters at these places have seen / heard every story. Don’t pull the ”Don’t you know who I am” type of a line. It doesn’t work. Try the above- and be patient. They are working as hard as they can to get you in .. remember- the more people they get into the club – the more money THEY make.

WHAT HAPPENS IN LAS VEGAS …. STAYS IN LAS VEGAS. Here’s your guide on the best places to visit for going out, gambling and having the ultimate Sin City Experience. Las Vegas has changed since the days of gambling halls, and showgirls. There is so much to do in this wonderful city many people call home.

MOST LUXURIOUS HOTELS:

– WYNN HOTEL : Your experience at this luxury resort can be described in one word: Opulence. Talk about luxury. When you enter your room, you will find yourself facing a wall to ceiling window with amazing views. ( Try and request the Strip view) Decked out with plasma TVs, your own business center ( including fax and internet connection), this room is amazing. Now, most of the time when you are in Vegas you don’t want to be cooped up in your room – not here. Slip into the most comfortable bed in the world. Talk about beauty sleep. If you want to luxury at your fingertips, stay here.

-THE VENETIAN: The rooms at the Venetian are great for larger parties, for those who want some space. Not only do you get your sleeping area, there is also a section for relaxing and / or getting some work done (yes, there is a business center here too). The Venetian also has some great shopping so you can get that perfect outfit in the comfort of your own hotel.

-BELLAGIO: The water show hotel! Need we say more? This hotel is extravagant, and definitely for the high rollers. The rooms are grandiose and very sophisticated. The rooms are very spacious with extra seating available. This hotel has been featured in various movies… can you guess which ones?

– CAESARS PALACE – THE AUGUSTUS TOWER: Las Vegas big shot renovates the Augustus tower. The rooms in this tower are amazing. Large plasma screen TVs, great decor, very spacious seating area, and amazing bathrooms. Don’t forget the amazing views, and the shopping.

HOW TO GET THE MOST OF YOUR HOTEL STAY:

– Upon checking in ask if there is any way you can get an upgrade. Some times the hotel will be able to sneak in a free upgrade … if you ask nicely 🙂

-If you want to get an upgrade try this : tell the attendant at check in that you are in Las Vegas celebrating a special event. Proposal, Anniversary, Wedding, they may be able to give you some added perks.

OTHER WAYS TO ENJOY LAS VEGAS (other than gambling and going out):

-RED ROCK: You may be in the middle of the desert but there is a lot of nature to be found! Just 15 min away from the strip, you can find the 10+ hiking trails of Red Rock Canyon. You can enjoy your whole day walking along the trails, possibly even seeing little animals.

– SHOPPING: There is some amazing shopping in Sin City. You may be able to find one of the malls in your hotel, but the best is Fashion Show Mall. Conveniently located on the strip, you will never be away from a brand new outfit!

*Check out your hotel… there is a lot of things to see right on the strip*

BEST NIGHTCLUBS

-LAX: Located at the Luxor, the people who brought you PURE have done it again with LAX. With amazing celebrity appearances weekly, LAX is a great place to go dancing. The resident DJs play good music. The club is 2 levels… with the dance floor on the middle of the first floor. Lots of tables, and booths available for bottle service. BEST NIGHTS: Wednesday, Friday, Saturday

-TAO: Located at the Venetian, this spot is still hot. With multiple levels, and rooms, this place has something for everyone. During the summer, guests have access to Tao Beach as well. With multiple dance floors, this place is larger than other places in Vegas. As great as it is .. beware- this place can get very crowded. BEST NIGHTS: Thursday, Friday, Saturday

-BODY ENGLISH: Located in the Hard Rock Hotel ( off the strip) this place is insane. It usually gets packed by midnight so you have to get in as early as possible. The music is great, and the drinks are always flowing. The great thing about this club is that there is a second level of tables overlooking the dance floor. This way, those of you who pay the extra for bottle service have your own special area while looking over the club. BEST NIGHTS: Friday, Saturday, Sunday

-PURE: Located in Caesars Palace, this place is VEGAS. As seen in every major magazine, this place is where the Pussycat Dolls perform, it’s where all the celebrities have their birthday parties. It’s a must see VEGAS club. BEST NIGHTS: Friday, Saturday

– MOON/ PLAYBOY CLUB: Located in the Palms Casino this place gets you a 2 for 1 deal. One of the newest clubs in Las Vegas, Moon and Playboy Club get you to the top of the new Palms tower, over looking all of Las Vegas. Moon has an amazing sound system, outdoor areas and escalators taking you to the one of a kind Playboy Club. The Playboy Club features a bar, dance floor, and gambling. Every man’s dream come true. But beware- the gambling tables at the Playboy Club seem to have high limits so make sure you know what you are getting into. BEST NIGHTS: Tuesday, Friday, Saturday

As always, this is just a sampling of what Las Vegas has to offer. A great way to get the best of Las Vegas is to talk to your concierge at your hotel. If you want to get the most bang for your gambling buck you might want to get a player’s card so you can earn some points and goodies!

Viva Las Vegas!
