Any popular place will have a good doorman, so you probably won’t be able to get into the club by tipping the bouncer unless it’s a really good tip, which means at least $100, which may not be enough for you. The job of the bouncer at the door is to make sure that the place is full of attractive and wealthy people, and he gets paid well for it. If you’re not going to tip a lot, don’t even bother and go to the next tip.
Try to look at the guest list and then act like you are one of the people on the list. This can be hard to do, especially if you choose a name that the doorman already knows or if the party you’re looking for is already inside the club. If the bouncer sees you doing this, you’ll be kicked out of the club for as long as he remembers you.
Many of the clubs in Las Vegas are inside the casinos. If you lose a lot of money in the casino or win a lot of money, you can usually get into the club and maybe even into the VIP section, which is usually only for high rollers and famous people.
There are more and more high-end restaurants in exclusive nightclubs, and security usually doesn’t pay much attention to the kitchens. Workers often leave the doors to the kitchen open so they can go outside to smoke or take the trash out. This makes it easy to just walk in. Do not walk through the kitchen in a big group. Only two or three people should walk through at a time, and there should be 10 to 15 minutes between each group.
Also, it’s a good idea to get there early. Everyone wants to be cool, so they all go to the club an hour after it opens. The problem is that now you have to wait in a long line, and we all know that the line doesn’t mean anything because the doormen let anyone in who they want. If you get there early enough, you will almost certainly get in. People who get there early get in so that the rest of the people who come later don’t walk into an empty club. If they get there late and the club is empty, they will leave, which will make the club less popular.
It’s always a good idea to make friends with someone who works at the club. I don’t think you should follow them home and introduce yourself, but you can start talking to them at the club one night. Many bars no longer sell drinks by the glass. You have to buy a bottle of something in these places. Instead of a bartender to talk to and tip, these clubs have a bottle steward. If you go to the club twice or three times and buy a few bottles of expensive alcohol, the doorman will remember you and can let you in whenever you want, especially if you leave a big tip.
