How to Get Into a Las Vegas Nightclub for free
Las Vegas nightclubs with in demand DJs are very difficult to get in, so it’s important to know how to avoid hours of waiting in line and hassles. There are different entry options to consider for Las Vegas nightclubs.
- Do what everyone else does: Pay cover
Most nightclub goers choose to stand in line and pay the cover to gain entry. This is the slowest option, especially for guys. You may wait up to 2 hours to get in depending on the DJ that night
- Purchase Tickets in advanced
For those experienced in travel planning, contacting an agency for presale tickets may be the best option for stress-free club access. Tickets allows you to skip the long lines and guarantee your entry – just arrive before midnight and you should be good to go.
Buying club tickets in advance is the best way to get into a Vegas club if you are not doing VIP bottle service.
- VIP Options and Bottle Service
One of the more expensive options that guarantees club entry is with a VIP package. You will be provided seating with a minimum spend on alcohol and/or food. The club will require a credit card be held to ensure the minimum spend that will be charged that amount whether or not the food/beverage orders reach that total. The premier seating locations come with a higher minimum spend. These VIP options usually include booth tables away from or elevated above the crowd.

Las Vegas Club Prices
Let’s take a look at some of the club prices:
In general, male guests can expect to spend approximately $50+ as a cover charge. Female guests will be scrutinized for their level of “sexy,” and either be let in for free or be charged a lower cover charge amount than the males—no gender equality here!
Pre Sell Entry Tickets
Tickets range from $10 to $75. You purchase tickets based on gender and females usually pay $10-$20 less than guys.
Drink prices are similar to what you can expect to pay for a drink at just about any top restaurant, bar, or day club. A single beer will be around $10, and cocktails from $15 and up.
Bottle Service Prices
VIP service minimums vary based group size, location of table, and the DJ playing that night. Typical pricing is 1 bottle minimum for 3-4 people on average. Bottle prices usually start at $500 and can go as high as $30,000 on holiday weekends. Certain tables and locations generally have a set minimum like $2500 spend up to 8 guests. Do not forget to factor in tip and taxes which could add up to 30%+ on top of bottles.

Is Bottle Service Worth It
Bottle service is not for everyone and you do not need it to enjoy yourself at nightclub.
It does have its perks and makes sense for different cases.
Let’s first compare what it would cost for 8 guys to enter a top club without bottle service compared to with bottle service.
-8 guys paying cover at $50 = $400
-1 hour plus wait
-Waiting for drinks
-$12 a drink and 7 drinks per person = $672
-No place to sit
-Total cost $1072+ or $134 per person
With bottle service:
-$177 per person (as calculated above) or $43 more than without bottle service
-No cover, minimal to no wait in the line
-No waiting to get drinks and dedicated waitress
-A place to sit and talk
-Other perks like getting ladies to the table and escort to restroom…
That is just one example to see it actually would not be too much more for bottle service.
If you are by yourself or with one or two other people it probably does not make sense though in terms of price.
