Hello Las Vegas forum members,
A friend and I will be traveling to Las Vegas in a week and he wants to go to a nice, exclusive nightclub. I am not a nightclub person myself and I have never gone to any nightclubs when in Vegas.
I have checked prices online and I read that cover charges are about $30 and beer prices are about $8.
The problem is, both of us are traveling with a tight budget (he wants to spend about $500 in the whole 4-day trip, including meals and shows). I was wondering if you could help me estimate how much would we realistically spend in a night at XS, TAO or LAVO. This is my fourth time in Las Vegas and I know that prices advertised online and offline are not very accurate and let's say $64 (the price of the cover and 2 or 3 beers) seems really cheap for a nightclub in Vegas.
Also, the "upscale trendy" and "dress to impress" dress code written on websites worries me. While we plan to wear collared shirts and shoes, our clothes don't come from a designer or are/look very expensive. I have seen people going to the club in Vegas and I know they put some effort and money into their outfits, specially women.
Thanks for your answers, any comment will be greatly appreciated it.
