While you're working on your budget for your Vegas Vacation, it's time to start figuring out what you plan to spend on drinks. In our Las Vegas Drinking Guide, we will break down the costs and provide you with basic etiquette on drinking in Sin City.
Las Vegas Drink Prices
Drink prices in Las Vegas Nightclubs and Vegas Pool Parties can be excessive, so it's best to have an idea of what they cost before you start ordering. Pricing will fluctuate depending on the type of alcohol and the venue.
Below is what you can expect to pay:
- Mixed drinks $10-$30 each
- Shots are around $10 each
- Cognacs $12-$15 each
- Domestic Beers $7-$12 each
- Imported Beer $8-$15 each
- Bottled Waters $8-$10 each
Regarding Bottle Service, before you think you can't afford it, if your group likes to imbibe, check with Bachelor Vegas, and we'll let you know which way is more cost-effective.
Vegas Bottle Services comes with:
- VIP expedited entry into the club
- Your own private VIP table – a place to sit, rest your dancing feet, and store your belongings
- A dedicated cocktail server mixing drinks tableside
- A busser to keep your table clean and stocked with glasses and ice
- Standard mixers, napkins, straws, and garnishes – juices, tonic, soda, and soda water
- Security staff to make sure no unwanted guests enter your area.
Drinking in Vegas Guidelines
Several things to remember about what's legal and what's not in Las Vegas when it comes to alcohol:
- Alcohol can be purchased 24/7 in Sin City, but to buy it and drink it in clubs, pools, and restaurants, you must be 21 or older and be able to prove your age by producing a valid government-issued photo ID. Vegas clubs cannot admit patrons under 21, so even if you "don't plan on drinking" or you're the "designated driver," you will still be denied entry if you are not 21+.
- Open containers are legal on the Strip, but glass containers are not, so if you think you can carry around bottles of beer, wine, and liquor because they are wrapped up in a paper sack, think again.
- You cannot carry any open containers – glass or otherwise – onto public transportation like buses, taxis, Ubers, and Lyfts.
- Drinking and driving are illegal – everybody knows that.
- Outside beverages are allowed in the casinos, but not in their licensed venues like clubs, lounges, and bars.
- Tip your server/bartender – always tip the person serving you drinks, especially if you want them to continue serving you.
- Don't wipe up spills and pick up broken glass – it's inevitable; wherever there's drinking, someone will usually break a glass or spill a drink. Let your server know, do not try to deal with it alone.
- Pack your patience and respect the staff – the hospitality industry can sometimes be a challenging and thankless job. Please be patient and respect the staff. Yelling, whistling, flailing your arms in the arm, shouting "Hey, you," or snapping your fingers is rude and inconsiderate and won't get you served any quicker. In fact, in some cases, quite the opposite. Please keep it classy, and remember, a little kindness goes a long way.
- Bar prices are not negotiable. Please don't ask for a discount, a deal, a large/bigger/better pour. The bartenders don't own the place. They are there to pour what you order at the listed price.
How to get FREE Drinks?
Yes, "FREE!!" Some nightclubs and dayclubs offer customers – especially the Vegas girls – free drinks or access to an open bar for a certain amount of time to promote their club – like TAO nightclub and Marquee nightclub. You can also get free drinks by signing up for the Club's Guest Lists. Check with us, and we'll give you the details, or visit our guest list guide for more information about the guest list and the perks that go along with it.
Connecting with a Las Vegas Promotor or Girl Guy can also increase your chances for free drinks or introductions to clients spending the big bucks on bottle service tables. The Promotor or Girl Guy can also hook you up with a "Girl Comp Table," such as a free dinner at a high-end restaurant or a free table with bottles at a nightclub or beach club. The purpose of the comp is to fill the club with pretty girls to entice the men in the room to ante up and purchase a table with bottle service so the girls will join them.
