Certain clubs offer open bar or give free drink tickets
Some clubs offer an open bar and offer guests free drink tickets on nights that are not too busy. Most of these offers are for women, although there are other clubs that also give out drink tickets to men. For example, when they go on a Wednesday to attend Light Nightclub, both men and women can get free drink tickets.
However, these benefits are only granted to guests who enter the club as part of the guest list. They won’t get drink tickets if they bought a ticket.
Tao and Marquee are two of the few nightclubs that have bars open to women. Tao offers this on Thursdays, while Marquee does it on Mondays. However, guests must be at the club in advance as the open bars only last an hour or so. Another club that offers an open bar is Lavo Party Brunch.
Tipping doesn’t let them get into the club faster
Better to keep the money. This is not to give advice, but to disprove the old Las Vegas myth. According to an old Yelp forum, someone said they gave the doorman a $ 20 bill to skip the line. Although it might have worked in the 80s, things are different today.
There is no single doorman who decides whether or not a guest enters. There are 3 independent lines in each club. One is for bottle service, one is for guest list, and the other is for general admission. The bottle service line is for guests who check in when they have a table reservation. If a person is part of the guest list (free entry), they will be marked on the third line. Those in the general admission row will purchase a ticket.
People cannot tip to enter. They only need to pay for a ticket to enter. The following is another helpful tip.
General admission is the best way to get into a club quickly
Contrary to what others think, the general admission lines are usually the shortest among the 3 lines to enter a club. This is because most of the guests inside a Las Vegas nightclub are on the guest list. Only a few people buy tickets these days, making this line extremely short.
Guests get expedited entry when they have bottle service, though they have to wait for an available host before they can be escorted inside. Those queuing for general admission can get in in 10-15 minutes, as long as there aren’t that many people. Sometimes it can only take 5 minutes.
Having said that, the guest list is still recommended over general admission. It is better to be patient and wait a bit to get on the guest list and get in for free.
Other restaurants allow guests to enter for free
There are restaurants that are affiliated with a nightclub. Tao and Hakkasan nightclubs have restaurants with the same name. However, it may seem strange that they both offer Asian cuisine and on some nights allow their customers to enter the adjacent nightclubs for free.
The food in these places tastes good. So in case the guests want to eat first before going to the club, they can consider Tao or Hakkasan. They can ask the server if they offer free admission that night. Also, they don’t need to line up.
