If you’re coming to Vegas for the clubs, Hakkasan Nightclub should be near the top of your list. Not only does the venue have outstanding DJs like Alesso, but it has one of the best layouts in Las Vegas.
Case in point, you can “club hop” within the venue itself. You’ll find EDM playing in the main room while the 3rd floor is home to hip-hop music in both a club and lounge setting.
Fair warning, though, Hakkasan is so incredibly popular that getting there early is a must. I know, buzzkill, right? But hear me out on this.
If you don’t get there on time, bad things can happen, like price increases at the door.
But don’t worry. We’ve got you covered! And we’ll show you how you can protect yourself, too – all coming up in our complete guide to Hakkasan Nightclub.

Hakkasan Las Vegas: Overview
Hakkasan is inside the MGM Grand hotel at the southern end of the Strip. It’s one of the most sought-after nightclub destinations. And the venue has received many accolades, including ranking as the #1 nightclub in the world.
The property has five levels.
- First Floor: Hakkasan Restaurant
- Second Floor: Private Dining
- Third Floor: Level 3 Club & Lounge
- Fourth Floor: Main Room & Pavilion
- Fifth Floor: Mezzanine
Hakkasan is a whopping 80,000 SF, and somewhere around $100 – $200 million was spent to build the property.
It’s also one of the few nightclubs in town that offers a “club within a club” concept.
As far as Vegas nightclubs go, guests tend to dress up more at Hakkasan. If you’ve been to Omnia and XS, Hakkasan’s dress code is on par with them. So it’s always a good idea to come looking your best.
Dresses and heels (or nice-looking flats) are recommended for the ladies.
A collared shirt, dress pants, and dress shoes are acceptable choices for guys.
As a general rule, keep it “upscale fashionable,” and you’ll be just fine.
The following clothing items are not allowed inside Hakkasan.
- Open back sandals and flip-flops
- Sneakers (i.e., Nikes)
- Ripped clothing
- Men’s shorts
- Athletic wear (including sports teams)
- Hard toe shoes or work boots (i.e., Timberlands)
Pre-sale general admission tickets for Hakkasan run $20 – $30 for ladies and $30 – $50 for gentlemen.
With a ticket purchase, you’ll get access to the entire Hakkasan venue. However, you won’t have any place to sit down.
Combo Club Tickets
If you’re going to Wet Republic or another Hakkasan Group club, you may want to get a combination ticket.
By purchasing a combo ticket, you’ll get into two venues and save yourself a few dollars off each club’s entry cost.
These also aren’t available at the door, though, so make sure you buy them online before the event.
VIP Bar Cards
Another entry option you may want to consider is the VIP Bar Cards. These include admission and a gift card for drinks. They’re a great value, especially considering the high cost of beverages inside the club.
Additionally, you’ll enjoy expedited entry with the purchase of a VIP Bar Card. If you ask us, it’s worth the cost alone to avoid waiting in line!
VIP Bar Cards are available on Hakkasan’s official site and aren’t typically sold at the door.
On most nights, if you’re on the guest list, you won’t have to pay admission. You’ll want to make sure, though, that you show up on time as the guest list line is long.
Additionally, you must be at the FRONT of the line by the guest list cut-off time to ensure entry.
Now, if you arrive late and don’t make it to the front by the cut-off time, then you’ll likely have to pay a cover charge.
So to give yourself the best chance of getting in for free, we recommend arriving near the club’s opening time of 10:30 pm.
There are some occasions when Hakkasan’s guest list isn’t available, and guests must pay a cover. This tends to happen when there’s an ultra-popular DJ like Tiesto or over a holiday weekend.
Hakkasan guest list reservations are usually reserved for women only. If you’re a group of ladies, you’ll want to reach out to a club promoter to get on the list.
Make sure to contact a promoter in advance as reservations close a few hours before opening.
Men can occasionally get on the Hakkasan guest list, especially if there’s an even ratio of women in the group.
Be careful here, though.
If Hakkasan allows men on their list, the cut-off time is typically much earlier than it is for women. So you’ll want to make sure that your entire party can arrive close to the club’s opening.
We’ll get into more details about bottle service below, including our top table picks. For now, here’s a general overview.
Your bottle service minimum determines your table inside Hakkasan. For example, the higher your minimum spend, the better your location.
Main Room seating costs the most because you’re closest to the headlining DJ.
You’ll find moderate bottle service pricing in the Mezzanine and Pavilion areas.
Typically, the lowest prices are located in the 3rd Floor Club and Lounge. In these sections, you’ll hear hip-hop music.
- 3rd Floor Lounge (Hip Hop Lounge): $
- 3rd Floor Club (Hip Hop Room): $$
- Pavilion (next to the Main Room): $$
- Mezzanine (above the Main Room): $$$
- Main Room: $$$$
Hakkasan is a demand-based club. This means that table pricing is subject to change. So even if you make a reservation, your location isn’t guaranteed until you arrive.
Calculating The Total Cost
As we touched on above, prices are quoted as a minimum spend requirement. For instance, in the Main Room, a dance floor table might go for $6,000.
So if you get a table here, you’d need to spend at least $6,000 in beverage purchases.
The minimum isn’t the final cost you’ll pay, though. You’ll want to make sure to add the service fee, sales tax, and gratuity to calculate the total charge.
An estimate of these fees is 37%.
So, a $3,500 minimum spend table will end up costing roughly $3,500 + $3,500 (37%) = $4,795.
Of course, if you spend more than the required amount, the fees will be calculated on the higher total. And if you buy less, the difference will be reflected on your check as a table fee.
Hakkasan Las Vegas offers a variety of alcohol options for your night of partying. Bottle prices typically start around $650 and go up from there.
Please note that bottle prices and brands are subject to change. The menu below is for informational purposes only.
Hakkasan’s Main Room
The music played in Hakkasan’s Main Room is electronic with an occasional hip hop night. The Main Room features one of the most advanced sound systems, and it’s home to the ultra-cool Hakkasan Grid.
Speaking of, if you haven’t seen the grid, you need to go! Hakkasan spent millions building it. The grid changes shape and color and moves in sync with the music. I can’t do it justice here, but it’s one of the most incredible things we’ve ever seen in a club.
- Nights Open: Thursday – Saturday
- Hours: 10:30 pm – 4:00 am
- Bottle Service: $$$ – $$$$
- Music: Mostly EDM
- DJs: Steve Aoki, NGHTMRE, Loud Luxury, Party Favor, Alesso, Lil Jon, and more
- Location: Fourth Floor of Hakkasan
If you’re going to the Main Room to dance, drink and meet people, but you’re not getting table service, you’ll be happy to know that there are two bars.
There’s also one close by in the Pavilion (more on this coming up).
Main Room Bottle Service
If bottle service is more your speed, the Main Room offers oversized VIP tables.
From most locations, you’ll enjoy a fantastic view of the DJ and dance floor. The exceptional visibility is one of our favorite features of Hakkasan.
Now, a lot of people inquire about reserving dance floor tables as they think these are the best seats in the house. And they are an excellent choice! But you might want to consider a few other options as well.
Below is the table layout and numbers for bottle service inside Hakkasan’s main room.
Hakkasan’s stage tables are fantastic.
The stage tables are table numbers one through four on the map below. These booths are more spacious and sometimes even cost less than a dance floor table. However, you won’t get a direct view of the show from here.
But, in our opinion, it doesn’t matter that much because you’ll be next to the DJ. Additionally, there’s a private bathroom reserved exclusively for stage table guests.
Besides the dance floor and stage tables, one of the best locations is the owner’s tables. These come with a hefty price tag, though.
When the owners aren’t occupying them, they’re available for purchase. Like the stage tables, the owner’s tables are one of the most premier locations inside the club, offering the best view.
A high value is placed on these because of the experience you receive sitting here.
For instance, the owner’s tables are on an elevated platform in the center of the club. The booths are spacious too. (You can seriously have your own dance party here!) And you’ll get a phenomenal view of the dancers, DJ, laser show, and of course, the grid.
On the map below, the owner’s tables are numbers 21 and 61.
Hakkasan’s Pavilion area is next to the Main Room, so you’ll still hear the DJ from this location.
This section offers a separate dance floor, bar, and spacious restrooms. Additionally, the bar is large, and the lines are usually short, so you’ll get your drinks fast here.
And you’ll experience an outdoor vibe in the Pavilion as well. There’s even a wall with waterfalls and lush greenery – this is one of our favorite features at Hakkasan.
There are also table tops for anyone to use. So feel free to hangout here. You’re welcome to set your drink down and rest for a bit.
Pavilion Table Service & Map
Bottle service is available in the Pavilion, although most locations won’t offer much of a Main Room view.
The rest of the tables in the Pavilion provide an intimate setting without a Main Room view. It’s still an excellent choice if you want more space for your group or don’t want to be in a huge crowd.
Located on floor five of the Hakkasan property, the Mezzanine overlooks the Main Room. There aren’t as many people up here, which is excellent if you want to get away from the enormous crowds.
The Mezzanine level has a convenient bar and a restroom as well. And there’s plenty of space for walking around and dancing.
Here again, you’ll find lower bottle service prices since you’re upstairs. Prices are generally at least $1,000 cheaper than the lowest-priced Main Room table.
The Mezzanine offers a more private VIP experience. But you’ll still get a fantastic view of the DJ (no matter the table) and an oversized VIP booth for partying.
We often recommend these over the Pavilion tables due to their exceptional visibility. And you’ll get to experience the Main Room’s energy too.
There are also semi-private rooms (sky boxes) for larger groups of club-goers. These rooms come complete with sound control and a customizable screen.

Level 3 Club
Hakkasan’s third floor club is the venue’s hip-hop room. And it’s usually open on Friday and Saturday nights during the summer.
And let me take a moment to say that the 3rd Floor Club is on fire when it’s open! It’s also one of our top picks for the best hip hop clubs in Vegas.
To get to the Level 3 Club, you’ll take the elevator up to level 3 and turn right.
The club sits at approximately 10,000 SF providing a more intimate hip hop club experience. And although it can’t hold nearly as many people as the Main Room, it’s super popular, and the dance floor is always packed.
You’ll find that guests (and even the staff) often head downstairs to escape the EDM madness upstairs. In our opinion, the party is just as fun, if not more, in the hip-hop room.
There are two bars inside the Level 3 Club if you’re not getting table service, so you’ll get fast service for drinks.
Table Service & Map
You’ll score lower rates on table service in the 3rd Floor Club compared to the Main Room. In some cases, booking a VIP table here is 1/10th the cost!
And you can still head to the Main Room whenever you’d like. Be sure to let your cocktail server know, though, so she can keep your bottles and table safe.
Another unique feature about the Level 3 Club is the LED screens on the walls and ceiling. This creates a lighting experience different from other hip-hop clubs in Vegas. It’s so good that it makes the other venues’ lighting look like an afterthought.
Level 3 Lounge
Hakkasan’s Level 3 Lounge used to be called the Ling Ling Lounge.
Turning left off the elevator on the third floor will lead you to this hidden gem. Or you can also take the stairs, but be careful – they’re steep!
The Level 3 Lounge is typically only open on the most in-demands nights. So during the peak season, booths in the 3rd Floor Lounge are available for table service.
On quieter nights, the Lounge turns into a mixology bar. So you’ll get to try some very unusual concoctions here.
As far as the music goes, you’ll often hear throwback hip-hop.
Lounge VIP Tables
Tables are priced the lowest in the 3rd Floor Lounge. They typically go for around a $600 to $1,200 minimum spend.
There are a lot of smaller tables in the Lounge, too, so they’re fantastic if you don’t have many people in your group.
Additionally, the Level 3 Lounge is the smallest of Hakkasan’s rooms, so it fills up fast.
More Things To Know About Hakkasan
Hakkasan has some fantastic features that make it stand out among the competition. Here are some of our favorites.
Making your table experience even more exceptional is Hakkasan’s bottle parades. And I’d be willing to say that Hakkasan’s are the best around.
If you’ve never seen a presentation, it’s like an elaborate grand entrance for your bottle of alcohol.
For example, let’s say you purchase a vodka bottle from the parade menu. Cocktail servers will soon head to your table, carrying it across the room for everyone to see. Frequently, sparklers will shoot from the top of the bottle.
Now, you might be thinking that most clubs have sparklers, so what’s the big deal? But Hakkasan often adds additional elements, like a drumline. And let me tell you, the drumline takes it to a whole new level.
If you want something unique, you can customize your parade experience too.
There are all sorts of costumes available, like ninja turtle costumes! Or you can even get your name (and face) on the big screen at the higher spend levels.
I can’t think of a better way to start your night of clubbing than by eating at Hakkasan Restaurant. And if you’re a fan of seafood, then you have to try the Chilean Seabass. It’s phenomenal.
Some of our other team members love the Crispy Duck Salad and swear by the restaurant’s Blood & Sand drink. You’ve honestly never tasted anything like it!
We like to describe it as “smoky with a hint of dried orange and an aroma that reminds us of a high-quality perfume.” Okay, so maybe that doesn’t sound the most appetizing, but give it a try – we think you’ll love it.
Another benefit of eating at the restaurant is the ultra-short walk to the nightclub. It’s right next door, which I’m sure all high-heeled-wearing women will appreciate.
Girl Comp Tables
If you’re a group of women and don’t want to buy table service, Hakkasan may offer some complimentary tables for ladies.
Please note that these are NOT available on all nights. The best bet is on a non-holiday weekend or when a lesser-known DJ is performing. Thursdays and Sundays are often better bets than Fridays and Saturdays too.
Girl comp tables are typically available for groups of five or more women. Often, the more women you have in your group, the better.
You’ll want to arrive early (approximately 10 pm) for girl comp table seating. And it’s best to speak with a Hakkasan host in advance regarding availability.
Keep in mind, though, that tables sell fast at Hakkasan. The earlier you arrive, the more alcohol you’ll get to consume, and the longer you’ll have to enjoy the table.
If you have a small group of ladies, you may get seated with another group of women. So if you want a complimentary table all to yourselves, you’ll need to come with a larger group.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does Hakkasan Allow Re-entry?
Many people ask us if they can leave the club and come back.
Now we frequently club-hop in Vegas, and it’s not ideal. You’ll spend more time in taxis or Ubers than actually at the clubs themselves. Also, you risk not being allowed back in the club once you leave.
Even Hakkasan doesn’t have an exact answer to this question. Instead, they respond with “maybe.”
Our advice – pick the club you want to be at and stay there. It’s just not worth the hassle.
When Are Hakkasan Nightclub Events Released?
Hakkasan releases its talent line-up about one to two months in advance. The best way to find out who is scheduled to perform is to check the club’s event calendar.
How Far In Advance Can I Book A Bottle Service Reservation?
Pricing for table service doesn’t get released until the event line-up has been announced. So if the date you want doesn’t have an event listed yet, then, unfortunately, you can’t make a reservation.
