Getting Inside A Club

On New Year’s Eve, there are only two ways to get inside a Las Vegas nightclub – buy tickets or purchase bottle service. Unlike most other nights in Vegas, there won’t be any guest list reservations as this is one of the busiest days of the year.

(In the days leading up to NYE though, most clubs will offer a guest list. For reservations, please text us at (702) 816-6738 or email us at info@vegasprimer.com.)

Tickets

Unless you’re purchasing bottle service, you’ll need to buy a ticket to get inside a club. You’ll want to buy your ticket in advance as tickets for New Year’s sell out fast! Also, prices are known to go up as New Year’s approaches.

The best way to purchase a general admission ticket is to buy them directly from the club’s website before New Year’s Eve. Waiting until the night of carries significant risks as the club may sell out, or you may have to pay an astronomical price at the door. However, if you must wait to purchase your ticket until New Year’s Eve night, then we recommend getting to the club before it opens for the best chance of making it inside.

Vegas Primer Tip: Look for club tickets that offer open bars until a particular time or “bar cards” that give you a gift card for drinks. These will save you a good chunk of change if you want an entry only option and plan on purchasing drinks inside the club.
Entry May Not Be Guaranteed

Also, it’s worth pointing out that most clubs have an “arrive by” time for entry on New Year’s Eve. They list this time because once the club reaches capacity, they won’t let anyone else inside the venue. So even if you’ve purchased a ticket, but you show up later than the arrive by time, you may not get in.

It’s a good idea to check the fine print on your ticket to find out what time you need to arrive by for guaranteed entry. For your convenience, we’ve listed these times for each club below. Please note that times may be subject to change.

Bottle Service

If you’re getting bottle service at a club, then you won’t have to pay for a general admission ticket. (Your bottle service reservation gets you inside for free.) But, keep in mind, that the cost of bottle service during New Year’s isn’t inexpensive. For example, it can be double the price of what you’d pay on any other day of the year.

And on this night, in particular, the clubs strictly adhere to the maximum number of people allowed with each bottle service reservation. For example, if you reserve a table at Hakkasan and it has a maximum allowable number of eight guests, then only eight people will be escorted to your table.

If you have more guests in your party, the only way around this is to increase your bottle service minimum or purchase a ticket (if they’re still available and the club is offering this option).

Once inside though, if you meet girls (or guys) that want to party with you, there shouldn’t be any issue having them hang out as they’re already inside the club.

Similar to general admission tickets, the pricing for bottle service goes up the closer it gets to New Year’s Eve. In short, the sooner you book, the better the price. However, this rule only holds for clubs that take deposits for reservations (like the Wynn properties). Booking at a club that doesn’t accept deposits (also called “name-only reservations”) may put you at risk for a price increase at the door if you show up to the club late.

Vegas Primer Tip: When possible, it’s a good idea to pre-pay your bottle service reservation or at least pay the deposit in advance to guarantee your table section. Your table price and the location is only secured though if you show up on time.

And to make picking out your NYE club even easier, we’ve taken it one step further and identified which clubs are offering the best New Year’s Eve deals.

If you’re interested in making a bottle service reservation, we’ve listed a price range so you can get an idea of the cost at each club. Please note that these prices may vary depending on how many guests are in your party.

If you’d like to see all pricing options at a particular nightclub (or nightclubs), please email us at info@vegasprimer.com or message us at (702) 816-6738. (We book bottle service reservations at all Las Vegas properties.)

Vegas Primer Tip: Some of the best bottle service values are at clubs that have outside patios. Although it’s chilly in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve, most nightclubs have heat lamps at or near the tables. You can save a bundle sitting here and stay warm too!

Best Clubs For Bottle Service On A Budget

If you want bottle service for New Year’s Eve and a great club experience without breaking the bank, check out Light or Chateau Nightclub. For a more mid-range price point, consider Apex, Hyde, Intrigue, Marquee or Tao.

Best Nightclubs To Watch The Fireworks

Both Chateau and Hyde are excellent club choices to watch the fireworks. For example, at Hyde, you’ll have a front-row seat to Paris’ firework show. And at Chateau you’ll get to see Caesars Palace’s fireworks and also experience the show directly above you from the top of the Paris hotel.

If you want one of the best views of the fireworks on the strip, Apex Social Club has it! At this club, you’ll ring in the new year from the 55th floor of the Palms hotel. Head out to the patio a few minutes before midnight to watch the shows as multiple hotels shoot fireworks from their rooftops.

Omnia is also an excellent choice for watching the fireworks but only outside on Omnia’s Terrace. (The Terrace is Omnia’s rooftop and overlooks the strip.) You’ll get to see multiple shows from here too.

If you want to stay inside (and warm) while watching the fireworks, Hyde is the best option.

And although Lavo won’t be operating as a club on New Year’s Eve, you can make a dinner reservation there or purchase an open bar ticket. Lavo’s patio is an excellent viewing location for the fireworks as well, and you’ll also receive complimentary admission to Tao Nightclub after 1 am. The Lavo/Tao ticket combo offers one of the best values on the strip for New Year’s Eve.

Jenna & Mike’s Tips For A Stress-Free Las Vegas Clubs New Year’s Eve Experience

  • On New Year’s Eve, the strip closes at 5 pm which means that there will not be Ubers, Lyfts, taxis or any other cars allowed on Las Vegas Blvd. until it re-opens. If you want to arrive on the strip after 5 pm, then you’ll need to get to the hotels via their back entrances.
  • Some hotels don’t allow non-hotel guests inside unless you’re going to their nightclub or have a ticket to one of their events. It’s a good idea to call ahead of time to check.
  • Almost always Ubers and Lyfts are the transportation of choice as they offer the most competitive pricing. However, on New Year’s this may not be the case especially if you need to get somewhere during peak travel times. Check your apps for a cost estimate before confirming your pick-up.
  • If you do take Uber or Lyft, make sure you’re at the pick-up location before calling a ride. For instance, ride share services tend to cancel quickly on holidays if you’re not where you’re supposed to be.
  • Guard your purses and wallets if you’re walking on the strip or even in the clubs. Holidays are notorious for theft so keep a watchful eye, and you’ll be just fine.
Happy New Year!
