Though this is common sense to frequent club-goers, there are people who may be surprised. People from out-of-town (and other locals) always ask about the usual club etiquette and the way to get inside the best nightclubs in Las Vegas. Therefore, here are some insights:
Good luck to group of guys who don’t have a table
If you guys crowd together in line as if you are going to a football game, we assure you will have difficulty going past the doorman. Except if you are ready to pay for bottle service, think about how you will get in. It would not help to be friendly or insistent with the doorman. You are just keeping the rest of the people in line from going forward.
You can still hope to get in if you are attending a bachelor/milestone party. This is where you can use your remarkable social skills. Break away to meet some ladies in line. This is your best chance to get into the club. Create a small conversation and be sincere. Suggest paying for entrance or the first set of drinks.
Buy tickets beforehand
To avoid falling in line, plan in advance and buy tickets. For guys, it is still advisable to break up in pairs since girls get top priority. When you have a club ticket, you will just wait in a separate, shorter line. This will save a lot of time outside the club. This means you have more time to mingle inside. So, buy them!
As an advice, arrive way ahead of time. You as well as everybody (including locals) else want to be here with the popular names and DJ’s as the center of attraction. Make sure to fall in line by 10 pm.
Take note that even when you have a VIP host or reserved table, you still have to fall in line. However, if you do not want to wait, try to go during off-nights – like Sunday or Wednesday.
Look or ask for more info
When you book a reservation or check into your Las Vegas hotel, inquire if they give complimentary nightclub passes. Come up with every contingency you could think of to get in.
You will definitely notice club promoters scattered across the hotel premises to hand out their cards and/or flyers. If the promoter’s name is included on the card, contact him/her and ask for details (guest list, girl to guy ratio, general admission…). When you have a VIP host, you will go through the same procedure.
Though this is not a guarantee to enter a Vegas nightclub faster, the gesture will surely count, most especially if the VIP host or doorman makes it a lot smoother and easier for you.
