Guests must be 21+ with a valid ID to enter. If you’re under 21 don’t try and get in with a fake ID.

It won’t work and you could risk having it get take and potentially 86’d from The Venetian and Palazzo.

The bouncers at Las Vegas nightclubs have seen it all, they know exactly what to look for, and have to take their age limit extremely seriously.

GA prices at the door range but it is better to purchase pre-sale GA online because it is significantly cheaper than if wait and try and buy tickets at the door.

For presale tickets enjoy entry to the nightclub and general admission areas throughout the venue.

Is there a guest list?

Yes, there is a guest and you can find a TAO Group promoter that promotes for TAO Nightclub and other TAO group events by looking on Instagram or asking your friend.

Guest lists in Las Vegas can sometimes be a good option for groups that are all girls, even the ratio of girls and guys, or groups that can arrive on time to events.

You and your group will want to be there by 10pm, but arriving earlier is better in order to avoid long lines.

The guest list breaks down like this and is largely the same across all the top end nightclubs.

Women free entry.

Mixed groups of men and women free entry with an even ratio or discounted ticket price for the guys.

This is subject to change depending on the DJ and if you attend a holiday weekend event.

It is also recommended that your party arrive by 10:00pm at the latest in order to avoid long guest list lines.

For holiday weekends or artists you and your party really want to see we recommend purchasing a GA ticket to expedite your entry.

Entry is not guaranteed – it is subject to capacity. This is featured on select events only.

We strongly encourage purchasing tickets in advance to guarantee the most seamless entry.

What are the benefits and prices of a VIP Table?

One of the benefits of VIP table service is that, more than anything it makes you and your group feel like high rollers and unique experience in Vegas.

Table pricing largely varies by demand for the event dictated by who is playing that night and position/location in the nightclub.

As you might expect the closer you are to the dance floor and larger the table is that you book, the more money you will have to spend.

The way that Las Vegas tables work is you have to hit a minimum on total spend of drinks and bottles which is largely dictated by your proximity to the DJ and dance floor.

As you might expect bottles start at roughly $500 dollars and depending on which table
