The Las Vegas Drinking Guide
Many visitors come to Vegas for nightlife, gambling, shopping, entertainment, to experience the vibrant dining scene, and to party. Known as the "Nightclub Capital of the World," Las Vegas is a serious party town, and alcohol consumption is popular, profitable, and part of the rich culture. From dive bars, club crawls, and Las Vegas pool parties, Las Vegas nightclubs, and Las Vegas strip clubs, there's a whole lot of drinking going on in Sin City.
There are various reasons why people drink; it's relaxing, alleviates stress, and enhances social skills, but in Vegas, people drink because it's fun. Whatever your reason for imbibing, as long-time experts in the day life and nightlife industry, we provide you with everything you need to know about drinking at the clubs in Las Vegas.

The Cost of Drinking in Las Vegas
With millions of people visiting each year, Vegas has become one of the most famous tourist destinations on the planet. It is also fast becoming one of the more expensive compared to other tourist towns. But don't worry; you won't need to break the bank to drink in the clubs. Depending on what you order and where you order it from, Domestic Beers are $7-$15, Imports $8-$16, Mixed Drinks range between $10 and $30, Shots around $10-$12 each, Cognacs $12-$15, and Bottled Waters $8-$10.
Drinking in Las Vegas – What's Legal and What's Not
Vegas is a city of bottomless booze; alcohol can be purchased 24/7. It's legal to carry an open container of alcohol and consume it publicly on the Strip or Downtown Fremont Street, but glass containers are prohibited, and so is an open container in your vehicle and on most forms of public transportation. You can bring your drink into a casino, but it is unacceptable to take a drink from outside into other licensed establishments, such as bars, clubs, or restaurants, who make money from serving their own liquor. This should go without saying, but I'll say it anyway, drinking and driving is never allowed!
Drinking Etiquette – Code of Conduct
Las Vegas is a "tipping town." When you're at the bars and clubs, please tip your bartenders and cocktail servers generously, especially if their service is exceptional. If you break a glass or spill your drink, let the bartender or server know. It could be a disaster waiting to happen.
Please do not complain to the bartender or your server about the drink prices; they are not responsible for the cost of the drinks. Do not ask for a "good" pour or a "better" pour, and don't snap your fingers, yell, whistle, or wave your money around to try and get faster service. In other words, don't be a d&ck! Stay clear of the service areas, and please be patient! Pro-tip: if you don't want to wait in long lines at the bar, consider bottle service – the ultimate clubbing experience.
Free Drinks and Open Bars in Las Vegas
Yes, you read that right! If you don't know, cocktails at the clubs can be as $25 each and even higher at some of the mega-clubs. Nobody likes being price gouged.
Some Vegas clubs give customers free drink tickets or access to an open bar for a certain amount of time to promote their club. The good news is my company has several guest lists and dining options that have an open bar, some paid, and some are FREE.
Ladies, TAO Group Hospitality, operates TAO Nightclub and Marquee Nightclub, and they understand the importance of getting men to spend money on bottle service. Without the Vegas girls, guys will not spend money on drinks and bottles. TAO and Marquee lure the ladies in by offering an open bar or girl comp tables for a set time early in the evening, typically from 11:30 PM -12:30 AM. It includes well drinks and Champagne. On some nights, the comp drinks might be house Champagne only. Sometimes, the clubs give away a free bottle.
A paid or open bar option is much more cost-effective than a consumption bar (buying drinks individually). A per person or package price is less expensive than buying drinks individually. You will not get as many drinks, the drinks cost more, and a tip is involved with each purchase. With a paid open bar, there are no surprises because you know the price in advance, and you get more drinks. Our bachelor and bachelorette parties usually opt for the paid open bar because, with a celebration like this, they plan to do a lot of drinking!
