The Complete Guide
CHATEAU, underneath the Paris Las Vegas Eiffel Tower, is an unparalleled rooftop nightclub with views of the City and the Las Vegas Strip and the famous Bellagio Fountains. This masterpiece boasts a 15,000 sq. ft. outdoor patio – truly a one-of-a-kind, can't miss experience. A testament to French opulence and jaw-dropping elegance, Chateau is a sophisticated environment for those who want to party in style.
Independent hosting is serious business in Las Vegas. You can't just be any person off the street and hope to work with these nightclubs; you need a gaming license, you have to pass an FBI background check, and own a legit company (State LLC) to do business with them. You also have to have the pull, the right contacts, and relationships built on trust in order to work a deal.
I started in this business as a front door host in 2000, and 20 years later, I worked my way up to become a major player in the nightlife industry. While I still have ownership in a club in Chicago and own a large Chicago-based Halloween and New Year's Event Company, my home has been in Las Vegas since February 2013 when The Hakkasan Group moved me to the City to be their promotions manager for both Wet Republic and Hakkasan. Nearly one year into my Vegas Adventure, I had enough customers to start my own independent hosting company – Surreal LLC.
I do well in this business because my company is reputable, I exceed my customer’s expectations, and most importantly, I have the proper licensing. I am licensed by the Nevada Gaming Commission.

With my years of event and clubbing experience, and hundreds of connections, your Vegas Vacation will be better than anything you ever imagined.
In my Ultimate VIP Guide to Chateau’s Las Vegas Bottle Service, I provide you with all the details you need to know if you're looking to purchase a table.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Location & Hours of Operation
Chateau Nightclub is open Wednesday through Saturdays from 10:30 p.m. – 4:00 a.m. The physical address is 3655 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109, located directly in front of The Paris Hotel and Casino.
Dress Code and Proper Attire
As with any nightclub in Las Vegas, there is a dress code. Business casual or formal attire is preferred and recommended. Dress to impress - shorts, sandals, hats, Timberlands, boots, baggy pants, jean shorts and sweatpants are NOT allowed. For ladies, go out in style and stay away from any athletic gear, and most importantly, please keep your shoes. Not only is it dangerous, it’s definitely not a classy look. If you don’t think you can make it all night in your heels, consider wearing a different pair of shoes. If you have any questions, dress like the image below.Complete Las Vegas Dress Code Guide»
Cost of Drinks
Drinks vary in price at the bar. The industry standard of pricing for drinks range from $10 - $20 per drink and Beers from $10 - $15 each. Individual 1-L Bottles start at $450 plus and Bottle Service minimums typically range from $400 - $3,000+ before tax, tips, and fees.
The Vibe and Artists
Chateau plays a variety of music, mostly on the Hip Hop side. They do mix in some Top 40 and EDM but the overall the vibe is Hip Hop. They generally have a few good resident DJs and occasionally book a SKAM artist DJ or a celebrity guest. Expect a mixed crowd with a lot of ethnicities, and because it's Vegas, it's always a great party!

On most nights, the guest list is free for Ladies, and guys are either free or the fee is reduced as long as you have an even ratio of guys to ladies. Let us know and we will connect you with Chateau Promoter.
SEARCH EVENTS BY DATES
Unless we're talking New Year's Eve, you generally don't need tickets for Chateau.
VIP Check-In Location
At the very front of the Paris Casino and Hotel, you will find a staircase that leads up to the Nightclub. As you can see from the picture, it's a big sign along the west side wall marking the entrance.
They have a line for tables usually under the staircase however, when you work with us, we typically can walk you right up to the front of the ropes. You'll find signage that marks all the lines, and it's pretty easy to figure out.
All clubs in Vegas these days have a security checkpoint before they let you into the Club. Prohibited items include vapes, gym, paraphernalia, liquids and anything that might resemble a prescription pill. If you don't have proof that it's your prescription, then they will make you toss it or bring it back to your room. Expect to empty pockets and get a pat down. Ladies, they will look through your purse.
As far as Identification goes, if you're International, you need to bring your passport. A lot of clubs do not accept non-United States driver's license. For everyone else, you must be 21 years of age and show a valid form of ID. These are pretty straightforward rules in Las Vegas NO ID means NO ENTRY.

What is Bottle Service?
By definition, Bottle Service means purchasing alcohol by the bottle instead of buy the drink. American Clubs, especially in Las Vegas, are synonymous with "Poppin Bottles." You will be paying a premium for a bottle to reserve a section in the Club, but on a high note, it includes a personal server, VIP entry into the Nightclub, and usually an assortment of standard mixers such as Cranberry/Orange and Pineapple Juice, soda, tonic and soft drinks.
Bottled water and Red Bull is available for an upcharge. The cost of a bottle is a bit less than other high-end clubs and we have some popular package deals which I'll talk more about below. On any given night, Prime Tables are usually less than the cost compared to EDM and Hip-Hop Clubs around town.
What's a Minimum Spend?
The minimum spend is the amount you agree to spend in advance on alcohol to get a table or real estate in the nightclub. In Vegas, we call the minimum spend "the min." The better tables will have a higher minimum spend, and on bigger DJ nights, you can expect a higher "min." Please keep in mind that all clubs in Las Vegas operate on a supply and demand system. When we quote pricing, that's just an estimate based on what we think the demand will be for that night. For the most part, with our strong connections, we can get what we promise. The best way to " work with the system" is to make sure you arrive early and meet your host on time.
Typical Mins at Chateau:
- Entry Level $500+
- Preferred Tables $1000+
- Prime Tables $1500 and up
How Do I Calculate My Bill?
Let's do the math:
$1000 (min) + $83.75 (8.375% City Tax) + $97 (9.7% Venue Fee) + $170 (17% to the server) = $1350.75
Total Bill Calculator for Chateau Bottle Service
This does not include any "shake" to the podium for location, express entry, specific table, etc. FYI, a "shake" can also help with a lower minimum spend. When someone refers to the "shake," that means they tip on top of your table minimum and the tip, tax, and venue fee that you will be paying. (The "shake" or “handshake” to the podium goes into the host's tip pool).
In many instances, there is an opportunity to get lower-than-posted-pricing with what's called a "handshake" in Las Vegas; basically, it is a gratuity to the podium for a lower minimum and a potential upgraded location. Sometimes a podium tip is required for a particular table or even to get a location on certain nights. There are some higher tiers when the book larger DJs or Celebrity Hosts and it's a holiday or fight weekend, and there might be some nights where there are even lower tiers than what's listed above.
Dance Floor Tables
There are eight Dance Floor tables on the Terrace. They all can accommodate 10 to 15 guests and reside next to the packed dance floor. These tables are in high demand so generally, they fetch a higher minimum based on market demand.
Strip View Booths
Another Prime Table option is The Strip-View Booths along the glass wall overlooking The Strip. The Center Tables, 399 and 398, are considered the Owner’s Tables and can comfortably hold 8 to 10 people and are in high demand on most nights. Like all tables in Las Vegas, the minimums coincide with the demand.
Patio Cabanas Left Upon Entry
There are four Cabana-style Booths on the left when you walk onto the Terrace. They seat 12 to 15 guests. The only issues, the view is a bit obstructed to The Strip and they are a little out of the action. But if you have a larger group and want to be on the glass for a little less price, these might be an option.
Large "U" Booths Right Upon Entry
These tables are suitable for smaller groups from 2 to 8 people, and you can dance or sit on the ledge behind you. You will notice in the picture each of these islands boasts three stripper poles, so the girls end up having a great time at these tables. Although you're a little bit off the dance floor and out of the action a lot of times, the action might be right at your table.
3rd and 4th Row Booths
You have the Prime Tables, the Strip-view Tables, the 4-Tops, and then there's everything else. From the pictures below, you will see several tables scattered around the outskirts of the Terrace. You can call them the Third, Fourth or Fifth Row, but they are a table and they are on the Terrace. On most nights, it's not busy enough for these tables to be in the action but you can always head over to the dance floor from your section. Most of the package deals on the low dollar min spends end up at these tables so, if you're on a budget and just want to table at a fun club in Las Vegas, then these are the tables for you.

The Best Tables
We love The Strip Booths - you get a great view of the Bellagio Fountains and you're right in the middle of the action. Usually, those will cost a little more money than the tables on the outer edges, but in our opinion, they're worth it! The Dance Floor Booths are amazing and enormous and they are right on the dance floor. Since Chateau is an open-air venue, there's not a bad table on the patio.
The back sections of the Terrace are a bit out of the action, but some customers prefer that. On busy nights any table will do. Even if you're out on a budget, we have something that will work. Two things to keep in mind…if it rains, it won't be a good experience and during the summer months, between June 16th and August 16th, we rarely go below 100 degrees so it gets pretty hot up there.
When the confetti is flying, bottles will be popping! Check out the video below to see a couple of our big bottle presentations. Usually, you have to order a minimum of $1,000 at once and some sort of champagne, however, this can change depending on the night.
On some weeknights, all we have to do is ask for some sort of presentation but on bigger artist nights, it's going to require a little bit more spend to make one happen. Just let us know if that's what you're looking for, and we can coordinate a presentation and potentially a LED display on the big screens.
New Year's Eve 2022
Chateau is one of the more popular and reasonable spots to hang out for New Year's Eve and you will be treated to a great fireworks display. Depending on the weather, it might be a bit chilly since it's the heart of winter in Las Vegas but if you can brave the cold and want a great table for a reasonable price, or even a ticket with an open bar, then Chateau is the spot. This party typically sells out so let us know if you’re interested early in the Fall. .
Since the pricing is on point and the bottle packages are reasonable, Chateau makes for a perfect couple destination. There are a few small tables that will fit two to four people very well, and we may also have an opportunity for a couple to join a bigger group.
Since men book the most Bottle Service, we book a lot of Bachelor parties. We have some amazing packages that include limos, dinners, and gentlemen's clubs. So, if you're looking for a package deal or a straight Bottle Service deal, we can make that happen. We always do our best to get females to your table – one of our many skill sets.
We never forget about our favorite ladies - we book a surprising amount of bachelorette parties at Chateau as well. On occasion, we also offer services to help get the ladies passed the VIP ropes. So, if you're interested, we can set you up with a package deal that includes all you can eat and drink dinners, limos, and possibly a gentlemen's club or male review. Let us know, and we'll make your party a night to remember!
How do I get my guests in if they arrive late?
Usually, this is a pretty straightforward process. Your guest(s) can walk up to the ropes and mention the name the table is under and the table number, and they get right in. Some exceptions could be if the Club is at capacity and they just can't physically allow anyone else in via the Fire Marshal's rules and regulations, or if you are way over your limit on the number of people at your table. If you have some uninvited guests at your table for some reason, the proper way to handle that is get security to have them removed. I strongly suggest that you do not try to remove them yourself as an altercation could occur, and potentially everyone at the table will get kicked out. With over 20 years of experience in this business, please trust us, that is the best way to handle things.
Drai's After-Hours - after Chateau
Drai's after-hours is the party that continues after the Drai's Nightclub closes. It’s located in the basement of The Cromwell Hotel and it’s within walking distance from Chateau. The after-hours party was the original Drai's Nightclub back in the day and it used to be a legendary party underneath Bill's Casino of yesteryear. Nowadays, the Main Room at Drai's after-hours plays all Hip Hop, and usually the side room, if it's open, will play Reggaeton. There used to be a tech-house after-hours on Saturdays in the side room but at the time of this writing, it's been discontinued.
We have Bottle Service deals at Drai's after-hours, so let us know if you would like to set that up. The after-hours party typically starts at 2:00 a.m. until 6:00 a.m.
The Final Word
Chateau is the king of the “deal-clubs” in Las Vegas. In other words, it’s a great place to party at a reasonable price. We book a lot of tables at Chateau with no complaints.
Some of the other deal clubs include Light, Apex, Tao, and Encore Beach at Night. Over the last couple of years, several of the other deal-clubs have closed so, there are fewer places for people to go, but the clubs still standing, are busier and better than ever.
