Everything You Need To Know About Clubbing in Vegas
1. Cost of club entry
Going out in Las Vegas can be costly.
Entry to most places will cost men somewhere between $20 and $60, and for women $10-$30. That said, you can get on guestlists which will greatly reduce the price, and sometimes make it free.

2. Cost of drinks
Depending on where you go, the drinks can bleed you dry.
In places like XS you can pay $10,000 for a bottle. There are other drinks, usually a cocktail will start around $15 and beers around $10. And if you’re getting great table service, don’t forget to tip.
Of course, Las Vegas is not renowned for being a cheap night out (unless you meet a generous high roller). Those fancy bars come with a price tag.
And recently, there are reports that guests at Strip resort properties are getting stung by services fees on drinks too.
3. Dress code
You’re not in Kansas anymore, so please, make an effort. Most clubs ask that you come dressed smart casual, or upscale chic.
That means NO JEANS or rips, leave your sandals and flip flops at home and don’t wear hats or excessive jewellery. Goes without saying, but wife-beater shirts on men will not be welcomed.
Last but not least, don’t forget the drinking age in the US is 21 and you’ll likely have to show some photographic ID to prove you’re old enough.
Let’s not pretend we’re still the same spritely spring chickens we were in our youth.
Most of us, if we do it right (!) will feel it the next day. So, what to do when you risk writing a whole day of your trip off? Fear not, our top hangover cures in Las Vegas will see to it that you still have an amazing day.
