Dress codes in Casinos
Save

Hi I'm travelling to Vegas for the first time in august for a few nights and I wondered if there was dress code in the casinos? I appreciate they could all be completely different, but are they formal or very casual? or down the middle? I'm staying at the Planet Hollywood and will go to a few down the strip.

Thank you for any advice.

In a nutshell: no. Unless you want to be in an exclusive gambling area (but usually these are Armani suits with thousands upon thousands to gamble). But as far as playing slots and gambling at tables is concerned, Vegas is surprisingly relaxed.

Ive been known to wear my robe gambling. It can be as casual as you want, within decency laws.

You can pretty much wear what you want, as long as you are decent (and sometimes, not even that, IMO). This is not like certain casinos in Europe, where there is a specific dress code and certain areas, you may even need to pay to get in. You will see people mostly in shorts and jeans and t-shirts (and other similar casual attire) during the day, and at nights, you may see people more dressed up as they are going to / from dinner or the clubs. But there is no rule at all regarding any type of more formal attire that you must wear in order to enter a casino.

Just look in the mirror before you go out. Lots of people don't but should have.

After a certain time of night, you may see certain ladies dancing around poles in PH with very little on, mind you they're not gambling!!!

The casinos are usually pretty chilly. Never been in one that's too warm. They have to keep you awake so you continue gambling.

Geocip-we have a theory that people get discounts on rooms without mirrors...so many people seem not to have seen one while dressing in Vegas...
