How to attend a Las Vegas Nightclub event for New Years Eve
Unlike other nights in Las Vegas, new year’s eve is among the busiest days of the year. There will be no guest lists for nightclubs. You will have to purchase entry tickets or get bottle service to gain access to the nightclubs. It is not recommended to gain access by through general entry tickets, however. Except to wait in a very long line. Get VIP hosted entry, and have a Las Vegas host escort you and bypass the line. On the other hand, if you opt to get bottle service at a club, you will not need a general admission.
But, keep in mind that whether you buy tickets or reserve bottle service, the costs can be quite expensive if you do not plan accordingly. If you don’t purchase your entry or reserve a bottle service in advance, you end up paying fortunes on the door. In some cases, you may also have to pay double or triple the cost you would be paying on ordinary days.
What time you should arrive at a nightclub?
It is very important to know that most of the nightclubs have an “arrive by” time to enter on New Year’s Eve. To prevent overcrowding, they are restricted to a maximum number of people allowed inside the club. Once the club reaches its capacity, the nightclubs will not allow anyone inside the venue, especially if you arrive after their designated ‘arrive by’ time.
If you show up at the venue later than the “arrive by” time, they may deny your entry regardless if you purchased your ticket. To ensure guaranteed entry to the club, it is recommended to arrive earlier.
Where to watch the fireworks
A great place to see the fireworks is at the rooftop club Chateau at the Paris hotel. you will get a great view of the Caesars Palace. Marquee Nighclub and OMNIA are also great options to watch fireworks, but be sure you are on the terrace. Another option to consider is the Legacy Club at Circa Resort in downtown Las Vegas. Here you will see the astonishing view of the “Sky High New Year’s Eve Celebration” through fireworks from the 60th floor.
Where to park?
Most of the self-park garages and strip valets may be full by 5 pm. During this time, traffic is also restricted and the whole strip becomes a giant pedestrian mall. It is better to park earlier in the day in nearest to the hotel or club you are going to celebrate your new year’s eve at. Once on the strip, you will not be able to leave until after the midnight show. A good tip is to take a picture of the parking garage and the floor you parked at.
