Hakkasan Nightclub in Vegas: The Ultimate Guide

It’s been five years since I had my first Vegas club experience. Somehow I missed the memo on how great nightlife in Vegas is. I thought Vegas was just for gambling. How incredibly wrong I was. Since then a lot has changed including becoming known as a Vegas club expert. Hakkasan was the first club I ever went to, and as such it holds a special place in my heart. It’s also where I met the co-founder of this site, Mike Henderson.

It’s embarrassing to admit, but I’ve been to Hakkasan so many times I can’t even count. I’ve partied in the DJ booths in both the Main Room and Ling Ling Club. I’ve sat at almost every table – I’ve been at girl comp tables, client’s tables and I’ve frequented the Hakkasan restaurant tables too. I’ve seen practically every DJ perform. I’ve even tried every bathroom. What I’m trying to say is I know my Hakk!

Now, Mike worked at Hakkasan for two years, and he was Hakkasan’s top Girl Guy (more on this later) as well as a VIP Host. So you can be darn sure this article covers everything you need to know about Hakkasan Nightclub.

Hakkasan Las Vegas

Hakkasan nightclub is inside the MGM Grand hotel at the southern end of the strip. It’s one of the most sought-after nightclub destinations, and it’s received numerous accolades including ranking as the #1 Nightclub in the World by Playboy Magazine. It’s also one of my personal favorites. The property itself has four levels.

  • First Floor: Hakkasan Restaurant
  • Third Floor: Ling Ling Club & Lounge
  • Fourth Floor: Main Room & Pavilion
  • Fifth Floor: Mezzanine

(The missing floor is the second floor, and it’s for private dining.)

Hakkasan is approximately 80,000 SF and (if the rumors are true) somewhere around $100 – $200 million was spent to build this impressive property.

To begin, I can’t think of a better way to start your night of clubbing than by eating at the Hakkasan restaurant. If you’re a fan of seafood, then you must try the Chilean Seabass. It’s phenomenal.

As for Mike, his favorite dish at Hakkasan Restaurant is the Crispy Duck Salad, and he also swears by their Blood & Sand drink. Mike claims he’s never tasted anything like it describing it as smoky with a hint of dried orange and an aroma that reminds him of a high-quality perfume.

Another benefit of eating at Hakkasan restaurant is the ultra-short walk to the club. It’s next door which I’m sure all high heeled wearing women will appreciate.

Vegas Primer Tip – On certain nights you can get free entry into Hakkasan nightclub by eating at the restaurant. Just ask your server if they’re offering free admission that night. If so, you’ll show your receipt as proof and be escorted up the stairs or receive a ride in the restaurant’s private elevator. What’s more, there’s zero wait time to get inside the club!

The Hakkasan Clubs

Yes, you read that right. I wrote clubs. Hakkasan is one of the few clubs on the strip that offers a club within a club concept. Although Hakkasan is known for being an EDM powerhouse in their Main Room, Hakkasan also has a hip hop room called the Ling Ling Club (also known as the Ling Ling Room).

Listed below is general information about Hakkasan Nightclub.

Hakkasan Ticket Prices

Pre-sale general admission tickets for Hakkasan typically run anywhere from $20-$30 for ladies and $30-$50 for gentlemen. The general admission tickets provide access to the entire Hakkasan property so you can club hop between the Main Room, Ling Ling Club, and the Ling Ling Lounge area.

There are also “VIP Bar Card” packages that cover your admission plus give you a gift card for drinks. They’re a great value especially considering how expensive Vegas club drinks are! Additionally, the VIP Bar cards get you expedited entry without the need to make a table reservation.

And if you’re planning on hitting the MGM Grand pool party at some point during your trip, there are also combination entry packages available. In this way, you can get a deal on both Hakkasan and Wet Republic.

Vegas Primer Tip – On the big nights, especially if you want to avoid the lines at all cost, show up to Hakkasan either super early before club open (10:00 pm) or right when the DJ is scheduled to be on (usually between 1:00 – 1:30 am). At these times, the general admission line is short, and you should get right in. 

Hakkasan Guest List

On most nights, if you’re on the guest list, you won’t have to pay admission. One caveat – make sure you show up on time as the guest list line is long. (Latecomers are frequently required to pay general admission even if they’re on the list.) A good rule of thumb is to show up near the club opening (10:30 pm) or earlier.

Guest list reservations are usually reserved for women only although men can sometimes get on it too especially if you’re coming with at least an even ratio of women to men in your party. Additionally, during the winter months, we’ve seen instances when guys can get on the guest list for free entry as long as they arrive early.

However, there are some occasions when everyone is required to pay a cover charge. For example, on the big nights with Calvin or Tiesto or if it’s a holiday weekend it can be challenging to get in for free.

Keep in mind that the nightclub has the final say as to their guest list rules.

Hakkasan Table Reservations

Your bottle service minimum determines your table inside Hakkasan. For example, the higher your minimum spend, the better your location. Main Room seating will come with the highest price as this is where the most notable names perform. You’ll find the lowest bottle service prices in the Ling Ling Club and Lounge.

Below is a general idea of bottle service pricing for the various table locations inside Hakkasan.

  • Ling Ling Lounge: $
  • Ling Ling Club (Hip Hop Room): $$
  • Pavilion (behind Main Room): $$
  • Mezzanine (above Main Room): $$$
  • Main Room: $$$$
Hakkasan Table Service Cost

Prices are quoted in terms of a minimum spend requirement. For instance, in the main room, a dance floor table might go for $6000. That means you will need to spend at least $6000 in alcohol purchases. There isn’t a separate charge for the table itself.

That’s not the final cost though. You’ll want to make sure to add the service/tax/tip fees to understand the total amount you’ll be charged. For a good estimate of these fees, add 37% to the bottle service minimum. In this way, a $3500 table will actually end up costing you $3500 + $3500(37%) = $4795.

When you receive the final bill, there will be separate lines for tipping, i.e., waitress, host, and busser. You can certainly include an additional tip (it’s a very nice gesture to do so), but the gratuity is already added in the 37%. A lot of people don’t know this and end up spending more than they otherwise need to.

That said, it’s important to note that the tip that’s included in the service/tax/tip fee is for the waitress only.

If you want to add any additional tips for the other employees, you can fill out the lines for the host and busser. They work extremely hard to make sure you receive the best experience possible.

Hakkasan Bottle Service Menu

Hakkasan Nightclub offers a large variety of alcohol offerings for your night of partying. Bottle prices typically start around $600 and go up from there. Please note that bottle prices and brands are subject to change.

Hakkasan Dress Code

As far as Vegas clubs go, we’d say people dress up more at Hakkasan than at the majority of other clubs, except for maybe Omnia and XS. It’s always a good idea to come looking your best – dresses and heels (or nice looking flats) for the ladies. Dress pants, a collared shirt and dress shoes for the guys. Clothing items that are not allowed inside the club include hats, sandals, sneakers, ripped clothing, men’s shorts, and athletic wear. Absolutely no sports team clothing items are permitted.

Hakkasan Re-entry

Many people ask if you can leave the club and come back. Now I’ve tried club hopping before in Vegas, and it’s not ideal. I spent 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 not worth the hassle.

Hakkasan Las Vegas Nightclub Events

Hakkasan releases their talent line-up about a month or two in advance. The best way to find out who is scheduled to perform is to check the calendar on Hakkasan’s official site.

Ling Ling Club

Hakkasan’s third floor is home to the Ling Ling Club (hip hop room) and the Ling Ling Lounge (offering a more relaxed hip hop atmosphere).

Let me take a moment to say – the Ling Ling Club is on fire! And it’s one of our top picks for best hip hop clubs on the strip. The club sits at approximately 10,000 SF providing a more intimate hip hop club experience. To get to the Ling Ling Club inside Hakkasan, take the elevator up to the third floor and turn right.

  • Nights Open: Most Fridays and Saturdays
  • Bottle Service: $$
  • Music: Hip Hop
  • DJs: Lesser known, but a great party nonetheless!
  • Location: Third Floor of Hakkasan

You’ll get better deals on bottle service inside Ling Ling as compared to Hakkasan’s Main Room. In some cases, booking bottle service in the Ling Ling room is 1/10th the cost! For example, on a recent Kaskade night, table reservations in the Ling Ling Club went for around a $1k-$1,500 minimum whereas in the main room prices ranged from $5,000 to $10,000.

Vegas Primer Tip – For the best table locations inside Ling Ling opt for the tables that are next to the DJ or right behind the DJ. Avoid booking a table reservation near a hallway. The hallway tables are more crowded making it difficult to get your groove on.

There are also two bars inside the Ling Ling Club, so if you don’t want to purchase a table, you’ll get decently fast service for alcohol consumption.

The Ling Ling Club is considerably smaller than the Main Room and can’t hold nearly as many people but don’t let that fool you. This place is ultra-popular, especially on the big nights. Guests frequently head downstairs to Ling Ling to escape the EDM madness upstairs. The party is just as fun (if not more fun) in the hip hop room.

Another cool thing about the Ling Ling room are the LED screens on the walls and ceilings. For example, the Ling Ling Club provides a lighting experience that’s vastly different from the other hip hop clubs in Vegas. It’s so good that it makes the other clubs’ lighting look like an afterthought.

Ling Ling Lounge

  • Nights Open: Varies
  • Bottle Service: $
  • Music: Hip Hop
  • DJs: Lesser known
  • Location: Third Floor of Hakkasan

Turning left out of the elevator on the third floor will lead you to a hidden gem called the Ling Ling Lounge. On quieter nights it turns into a mixology bar so you can try some unusual concoctions. On super packed nights, the booths turn into table service. Tables here usually go for around $1200. You’ll find a more old school hip hop vibe in this lounge.

Vegas Primer Tip – We recommend the Ling Ling Lounge if you’re looking for a more intimate setting or want to hang out with your friends.

For Ling Ling Lounge reservations, text us at (702) 816-6738, or you can send an email to info@vegasprimer.com.

Below is a map of Hakkasan’s third floor featuring the Ling Ling Club & Ling Ling Lounge.

Hakkasan Main Room

Hakkasan’s fourth floor houses the Main Room and Pavilion areas. The Main Room is what almost all people refer to when they talk about Hakkasan. The music played in here is EDM with an occasional hip hop night. Most notable about Hakkasan’s Main Room is the DJ talent, bottle presentations, sound system and the LED screen that surrounds the DJ booth.

  • Nights Open: Thursday – Sunday
  • Bottle Service: $$$ – $$$$
  • Music: EDM (with an occasional hip hop night)
  • DJs: The best of the best, to name a few: Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Steve Aoki, and Zedd
  • Location: Fourth Floor of Hakkasan

If you’re going to the Main Room to dance, drink and meet people (you’re not purchasing bottle service), then you’ll be happy to know that the Main Room has two bars and one bar in the Pavilion (more on this coming up).

Vegas Primer Tip – The fastest bar service is on the far right next to the stage tables inside the Main Room.

Main Room Bottle Service

If bottle service is more your speed, the Main Room offers over-sized VIP tables, and it’s set up so that almost every seat in the house has a view of the DJ booth and the dance floor. This is one of my favorite features of Hakkasan. Many clubs on the strip offer main room seating, but the view is at times partially blocked. That’s not the case at Hakkasan.

Now a lot of people inquire about dance floor tables for bottle service, thinking that those are the best seats in the house. But you might want to consider a few other options.

Hakkasan Best Table Locations

The stage tables at Hakkasan are the bomb.

See the map below for table numbers 1 – 4. The stage booths are more spacious and sometimes cheaper than a dance floor table. Although you won’t get a direct view of the light show, in our opinion, it doesn’t matter because you’ll be next to the DJ. Additionally, there’s a secret bathroom exclusively for the stage tables.

Besides the dance floor tables and stage tables, one of the best table locations is the owner’s tables. They do come with a hefty price tag though.

When the owners aren’t occupying these tables, they’re available for purchase. Similar to stage tables, the owner’s tables are one of the most premier table locations inside the club offering the very best view. A high value is placed on these tables because of the experience you receive sitting here.

For instance, the owner’s tables are on an elevated platform between the 2nd and 3rd tiers. You’ll get the entire Hakkasan experience with the dancers, the lighting, a view of all the bottle service presentations and the laser show with the lights hitting you smack dab in the face.

The owner’s tables are on the map below at table numbers 21 and 61.

Lastly, our pick for the best value tables (meaning most bang for your buck) is the front row tables in the Pavilion. More on this in the Pavilion section coming up.

Vegas Primer Tip: If you ask us, the best tables in the Main Room are the stage tables and owner’s tables.

Hakkasan Bottle Service Presentations

Making your table experience even more exceptional are Hakkasan’s bottle service presentations. (I’d be willing to say they’re the best around.) A bottle service presentation is like an elaborate grand entrance for your bottle of alcohol. For example, let’s say you purchase a bottle of Vodka. In a short time, a group of cocktail waitresses will head straight to your table dancing and holding your bottle of Vodka with sparklers shooting from the top.

Vegas Primer Tip: Bottle presentations are available at table minimums exceeding a certain amount or with purchases of specific bottles only. They’re not available to everyone that makes a table reservation unless you’re willing to spend the required amount necessary to get one. 

And sure you might be thinking that a lot of clubs offer sparklers, but Hakkasan adds one more element – a drum line. Quite frankly, the drum line takes it to a whole new level. And if you’re a big VIP (meaning you’re spending a lot at the table), your name will be on display for all the club to see too.

If you want something unique, Hakkasan takes bottle service requests as well. Nothing is off limits  – dragons, boxing rings, and all sorts of costumes are available like pandas, cheerleaders, and even ninja turtles costumes.

If you can dream it, Hakkasan can do it. Bottle presentations are available for any reason. For instance, birthdays, bachelorette/bachelor parties or just because you’re in Vegas. Like I mentioned before, they’ll even put your name and face up on the big screen if you want to take your night to the next level.

Hakkasan Girl Guys

Another added perk of booking bottle service at Hakkasan is the Girl Guys.

A Girl Guy is a Hakkasan host that searches the club for women and brings them to your table. Of course, if you don’t want women at your table that’s okay too. It’s merely a benefit of bottle service at Hakkasan as not every club offers Girl Guys.

Another way to think of a Girl Guy is as a matchmaker. Ladies want free drinks, and the guys want to look at and party with women.

Girl Guy hosts cater to VIP clients with certain bottle service minimums (usually $3k and up). It’s also a nice gesture to tip the Girl Guy for his assistance.

Hakkasan Girl Comp Tables

If you’re a lady and don’t want to buy table service, Hakkasan may offer girl comp tables depending on the night. The best bet is on a non-holiday weekend or when a lesser-known DJ is performing.

Girl comp tables are available for groups of five or more women. Typically, the more women you have in your group, the better. You’ll want to arrive early (at approximately 10 pm) for girl comp table seating.

It’s important to know that the table will most likely not last all night. Expect anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of hours. You’ll get to stay at the comp table until someone buys it. 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. If you want a complimentary table to yourselves, you’ll need to come with a larger group.

Before leaving your comp, the nightclub encourages you to tip the waitress. A good rule to follow – give $20 per person to the waitress or $100 per bottle at the table. You get to drink free alcohol, so tipping is expected for the cocktail servers.

Pavilion

  • Nights Open: Most Fridays and Saturdays
  • Bottle Service: $$
  • Location: Third Floor of Hakkasan

As you can see on the map above, the Pavilion is next to the Main Room so you’ll hear the Main Room DJ. Tables are available for purchase here although most of the table locations won’t provide a view of the Main Room. That is unless you purchase a front pavilion table.

Vegas Primer Tip: In our opinion, the front pavilion tables are the best value in all of Hakkasan. These tables are still in the action, and you have somewhat of a view of the DJ. Even better – they go for considerably less money. For example, the tables are around $2,000 cheaper than the lowest priced main room table, and you’re only a few feet away.
Pavilion at Hakkasan

Bottle Service Tables In The Pavilion (facebook.com/hakkasanlv)

The rest of the tables in the Pavilion provide an intimate setting with no view of the Main Room. But, the Pavilion has it’s own dance floor, a bar and it’s close to a bathroom. The Pavilion bar is big, and the lines are usually short, so that you can get your drinks fast too.

You’ll also experience an outdoor vibe in the Pavilion as well. There’s a feature wall with waterfalls and lush greenery making this one of our favorite things about the entire Hakkasan property.

Vegas Primer Tip: Feel free to hang out in the Pavilion. The Pavilion provides table tops for anyone to use. You can set your drink down and take a load off.

For Hakkasan Pavilion VIP experiences, please message us at (702) 816-6738.

Mezzanine

Located on floor five of the Hakkasan property, the Mezzanine level is the last and final floor.

The Mezzanine overlooks the Main Room. Here again, you’ll find lower bottle service prices since you’re upstairs. Prices are generally at least $1000 cheaper than the lowest priced Main Room table. It’s a more private area too, but you’ll still get a fantastic view, fewer crowds and an oversized VIP booth to party in. All while experiencing the Main Room’s energy.

The Mezzanine Level at Hakkasan

There are also two semi-private rooms for larger groups of club-goers. These rooms come complete with sound control and a customizable screen.

The Mezzanine level also has a bar and bathroom. It’s probably the best bathroom in all of Hakkasan as the wait time is minimal.

Vegas Primer Tip: In times when the bathroom lines are long, try upstairs on the Mezzanine level – that bathroom is usually wide open.
