There’s no denying that Calvin Harris is one of the most successful DJs in the world. And with that comes long wait times, high prices, and sold-out nights at Omnia Nightclub. Unfortunately, it can be total frustration if you don’t know what to expect on a Calvin Harris Las Vegas night. (We’ve seen far too many club-goers walk away from the door upset.)
So, to help you out, we’re divulging our inside knowledge that comes from over ten years of experience in the nightclub industry. Today’s article covers our pro tips for making the most out of your Calvin Harris experience.
Now, let’s get to what you came for. 🙂
Calvin Harris In Las Vegas Pro Tip #1: Arrive Early
Whatever you do, get to Omnia early. It doesn’t matter if you’ve bought a ticket, are on the guest list, or have a bottle service reservation.
If you arrive late, you may find yourself waiting for hours to get inside or risk the club reaching capacity and not making it inside the nightclub at all. And with a table reservation, the club could sell it out from under you if you take too long getting there.
It’s also important to know that the guest list line is longer than the ticket line. By 11 pm on Calvin nights, the guest list line extends outside Caesar’s Palace, down the steps, and wraps around the corner (or if the line stays inside, it will wind through the casino).
It’s a grueling wait, especially if you’re in heels standing on concrete. Trust us; it’s much better to be inside the club waiting for it to fill up than in line.
And, as I just touched on, unless you’ve paid the entirety of your table service reservation or made a deposit, then you should abide by this rule as well.
When a table is held with only a name (aka “name-only reservations”), you risk the table getting sold to another party if you’re not at the club on time. And if it’s a Calvin night, the club will only hold the tables for a short time.
This is in contrast to bottle service reservations that have been paid in full, as these are typically held the entire night. Similarly, tables with deposits are retained until around 1 or 2 am. The hold time depends on how busy the club is on a particular night. On Calvin nights, it’s best to assume that deposit-only tables will get sold to another paying party by 1 am.
Pro Tip #2: Purchase Tickets & Make Bottle Service Reservations In Advance
Tickets and bottle service prices may go up the closer it gets to a Calvin Harris Las Vegas night.
The best way to purchase tickets for Calvin Harris is to buy them online on Omnia’s website. It’s a good idea to get them a few weeks in advance too. Case in point, the longer you wait, the more likely the price will increase.
Further still, the club may sell out of general admission or VIP bar card tickets entirely. If that happens, then the only option is to get to the club early and pay for a ticket at the door.
Keep in mind, though, that purchasing tickets at the door is usually the worst option. Prices are often two to three times higher than if you bought them in advance. Additionally, ticket prices can rise even while you’re standing in line if it’s more crowded than expected.
For VIP tables, it’s a good idea to book your reservation in advance. Although you always want to arrive early on a Calvin night, the club does tend to hold tables longer if you have a reservation.
Also, since Omnia is a demand-based club, bottle service minimums can increase for certain sections even if you have a reservation. Per the club’s official policy, it’s best to think of table locations as a request only.
Getting to the club at 10:30 pm, though, can make a big difference in getting the table section that you want.
Pro Tip #3: Limited Guest List
Unfortunately, on a Calvin Harris night, Omnia’s guest list is limited. Some nights they’ll offer one, and others, they won’t. Further still, you could even have a guest list confirmation text on your phone and get to the door, and they won’t let you in. It all comes down to how busy it is that night. And the decision to offer a guest list can change at the last minute.
That’s why we always recommend purchasing tickets, especially during the summer season. Cover charges are higher at the door, so it’s best to buy your tickets online in advance on Omnia’s website.
Additionally, if a guest list is offered on a Calvin Harris night, it’s almost always strictly for women. So if you’re a guy, there’s not much chance of making it on Omnia’s guest list for Calvin. Best to buy those tickets!

Pro Tip #4: Expect High Prices
No other DJ commands a higher price in all of Las Vegas except for The Chainsmokers. Both Calvin and The Chainsmokers have the most costly ticket and bottle service prices on The Strip. So a night with either of these two is going to cost you.
For Calvin, expect ticket prices to be around $75 for ladies and $100 for guys. Bottle service prices typically start at $1,500 for the Terrace (outside on the rooftop), $2,000 for the hip-hop room (Heart of Omnia), and $5,000 for the Main Room (where Calvin performs).
Pro Tip #5: The “Best” Table Locations For Seeing Calvin Harris At Omnia
On a Calvin Harris Las Vegas night, Omnia offers several table options to suit various budgets. Below, we’ve identified the tables with the best locations, the tables that provide an excellent combination of price and location (what we like to call “value” tables), and the club’s least expensive bottle service options.
Best Location Tables
If you want bottle service and you need to have the absolute best table location, you’ll want to make a reservation for a dance floor table. These are identified as table numbers 11 through 19 on the map below.
You’ll get the best view here, and you’ll be smack dab in the middle of the party on the dance floor itself. These tables are around $5,000 – $10,000, depending on the night.
Another great option is table numbers one and two. Although these are behind the DJ booth, they still make a fantastic Calvin Harris experience and go for a slightly lower price as well.
Best Value Tables
Now, if you’re looking for the best combination of price and location (value tables), opt for upstairs on the balcony. You’ll still be inside the Main Room and have a fantastic view of the party down below.
What’s even more amazing about these tables, though, is your view of Omnia’s mind-blowing chandelier.
Bottle service minimum spends on Omnia’s balcony usually start around $4,000.
Least Expensive Tables
If you don’t care about being in the Main Room, but you still want to enjoy table service on a Calvin night, you’ll find the lowest prices on the Terrace. This area is located outside and overlooks The Strip. (Refer to the yellow section in the map above.)
However, keep in mind that you won’t hear Calvin from the Terrace as another DJ will be outside. Additionally, the Terrace isn’t open year-round. So, you’ll find VIP table options on Omnia’s rooftop during the warmer months only.
Generally speaking, bottle service prices start around a $1500 – $2000 minimum spend for a Terrace table. It’s a great option if you want bottle service and you’re okay with not seeing Calvin. Or, if you do want to see him, you can always leave your table for a while and head downstairs when Calvin takes to the stage. (Just make sure to let your server know before you leave your table.)
Another budget-friendly option is to make a table reservation in the club’s hip-hop room, Heart of Omnia. Table service prices are considerably lower here as compared to the Main Room.
But, here again, you can’t see or hear Calvin from Heart as a hip-hop DJ is in this room. Like the Terrace, you’re welcome to leave your table in Heart and make your way to the Main Room to see him perform.
Pro Tip #6: Second Seating
On certain days, Omnia offers something called second seating. This is when the club may provide a reduced minimum spend later in the night.
For example, if you were to get a balcony table at the beginning of the night, it might cost $5,000. But if you wait a few hours, say until around 1:30 or 2:00 am, that same table may only cost $3,000. (This is an example only. Price reductions vary, and second seating isn’t available on all nights.)
Clubs offer second seating because the original reservation has already left for the evening or because the venue didn’t entirely sell out. Another reason might include a reservation never showing up.
It’s important to know that second seating isn’t guaranteed. If the club sells out or guests aren’t leaving, the nightclub won’t offer reduced table prices. But if you’re okay with not getting a table on a given night, then trying for second seating might be right for you.
You may be able to land a reduced minimum by walking up to the club around 1:30 am and asking if there are any second seating options. Please note that the club handles second seating reservations directly, and you can’t book them in advance.
If you know that you want a table, it’s always best to make a table reservation.
Pro Tip #7: The Girl To Guy Ratio Is Approximately 2:1
If you’re on the lookout for women, you’re in luck. Calvin draws a lot of ladies to the club. He’s so popular that the ratio of women to men is often around 2:1.
That said, even though the ratio isn’t typically equal, there are still many men here. After all, Calvin packs the house! And when he’s on stage, it feels like everyone is at Omnia.
Pro Tip #8: Calvin Harris Takes The Stage At 1:30 AM
A lot of people think that the headlining DJ performs from club opening to club closing. This is not the case. With all clubs in Vegas, there’s a warm-up DJ that plays before the main DJ.
You can expect Calvin Harris to take to the Omnia stage around 1:30 am, and his set will last for approximately two hours.
Pro Tip #9: Take A Break Inside Heart Of Omnia
If you want a quick change of music while waiting for Calvin, check out Omnia’s hip-hop room, Heart of Omnia. Heart is on the right side of the Main Room, just after the entrance. This smaller club is the place to go for one crazy dance party. And, of course, you’ll only find hip-hop music here.
And as I touched on above, one of the most significant advantages at Heart of Omnia is the bottle service prices. You can save at least a few thousand dollars over Main Room prices.
For instance, table prices at Heart during Calvin nights usually go for around $1,500 to $3,000. That’s in contrast to Main Room prices of $5,000 – $10,000.
So, if you don’t want to pay the higher rates in the Main Room, Heart is an excellent option. Additionally, you can club hop between Heart and the Main Room as you please.
Calvin Harris Pro Tip #10: Fast Pass The Club
There are massive amounts of people at Omnia on a Calvin Harris Las Vegas night. Because of this, many guests assume that waiting in line for the bathroom or moving at a snail’s pace around the club is just something they’re going to have to accept. But that’s not necessarily true.
For example, there’s a perk for bottle service reservations that a lot of club-goers don’t know. If you have a table, a security guard is assigned to your section. Now, if that security guard is available, you can ask if they’ll escort you to and from the bathroom, and you may even get to skip the line. (Wait times can reach 30 minutes for the loo, so it’s often worth it in our books.)
Additionally, if you want to go to a different area of the club, they may be able to help you out again by escorting you through the crowd quickly. And although not required, tipping is always a nice gesture for their help.
Well, that concludes our pro tips for seeing Calvin Harris in Las Vegas. We hope you found the information helpful!
