    Dress shoes recommended, nice dress shirt and jeans you should be good.

    Head over to jackcolton.com and find the contact info for the club host at each club you're trying to get into. They should be able to put your name on the guestlist and you won't have to pay any cover.
    Don't bother contacting a host at marquee, they don't put guys on the guestlist.

    Beers are $10, mixed drinks are $12

    If you're dressed right getting in isn't the problem, its how long you will wait if you're not on the guestlist.

    I suggest you check out the jackcolton.com site for TONS of great and useful info on the Las Vegas club scene. The only top-tier club on your list is Marquee... the others should be no problem. You're coming at a "peak" time and the top-tier clubs are pretty strict for most on dress, so look good... they're booze is pricey as well. I'm well past "clubbing age", but was at a private party at Marquee shortly after it's opening. Very nice facility and a memorable evening! Hope you have a blast in Las Vegas.

    Not sure what age bracket you chaps are in but I suggest that you skip the entire Vegas club scene. In my opinion, bars and lounges are a wiser alternative. No lines, not-so-strict dress codes and much more accessible. However, if still want that Las Vegas club experience, be prepared for long lines, crazy cover charges, over-priced drinks, dress codes and a few pretentious people. Also, when my buddies and I would go to a large 'trendy' club, it would most likely be our only destination for the evening. After getting 'dressed-up', finding our way to the location, standing in line and then forking over the cover charge for the privilege of buying their watered down drinks, we didn't see much reason for leaving. Even if the place was lame! We would only have to start the entire process over again with no guarantee that the next destination would be any better! With bars and lounges you can pretty quickly assess if you want to invest any time there. If not, you can easily move on to the next spot. We can sometimes visit three or four places in an evening. Do a little internet research on places like Eyecandy and the Foundation Room at Mandaly Bay or Revolution Lounge at Mirage for a few examples. To me, people seem more approachable at bars and lounges, which makes mingling much easier. If you know what I mean? I hope some others here on the board will chime in with there favorite spots. Oh, for something completly different, try stopping in at Carnival Court at Harrah's. People of ANY age can have fun at that place! Great music! It gets pretty wild as the night goes on! We always seem to end our nights there. Good luck!

    A UK driving license is fine to use as ID, you will be asked for it everywhere you go, and be refused entry without, no exceptions.

    Guest list is usually a separate line. Or if it is just a mob trying to get in, then find the guy with the clipboard and tell him you are on the guest list. Marquee will be the most difficult to get into, followed by ghostbar. Although if you go to GBDC, then they may be able to get you a pass for the night. As other users pointed out, go by jackcolton.com to get additional info for the clubs.

    I would focus on one club for the trip and make it your "club night." Jack Colton is a great resource for information on different venues.

    The biggest concern about hitting multiple clubs on a trip is the amount of TIME you'll spend in line! 45-120 minutes per club, for four clubs that could be 8 hours of boozin' and gamblin'!

    Have a GREAT time! Hope to see a bangin' TR!

    Santé,
    TL

    stick to marquee and xs and you will be fine,if you want a smaller chill club try hyde.
    if they give you a problem with dress code or waiting slip the doorman a bill or two should help as a group of guys can spend alot of time waiting to get in.

    Generally if you are on a guestlist you are not waiting in line.

    Either find the guy with the clipboard (guys at palms have ipads) or go straight to the front of the line and tell the you're on the list. They should let you right in.

    I can agree with skipping the club scene in exchange for going somewhere with a view.
    There are a number of great rooftop bars/clubs with great views that most people don't even know exist.
    I would take ghostbar or foundation room over any nightclub any day - I also don't mind paying extra money for the drinks compared to buying them in a lounge just for the view and atmosphere.

    As for watered down drinks, I have never seen that....

    Have you considered getting bottle service?
    If you're on a budget you have a few options:
    -Purchase presale tickets to the venues through wanttickets.com or directly from their website, as long as you arrive on time and are dressed properly you will be in within a few minutes.
    -Arrive early, im talking 10-10:15pm and just go through the general admission line and pay the cover which will be 30-40 depending on where you go. Marquee could be 50+

    Guestlists are reserved for groups of even or better female to male ratios and there is a guestlist line you will be directed to.

    PS: dress shoes, jeans (no holes or ripped) and a dress shirt are perfectly acceptable.

    You shouldn't have too much trouble getting on the guest list for Chateau or Ghostbar- if you want to go to Marquee you will either need to wait in line forever or pay a host to escort you past the lines. I have been using this chap for the last 3 years I've been going to Vegas he charges me 75 US Dollars total for the entire trip and he meets me and escorts me past the cue each night (Marquee, Ghostbar, a bunch of places). Maybe you can find someone like that although be careful I had a bad experience 4 years ago with another company. This guy was referred to me and hes been in business for 9 years.

    Two hottest clubs are Marquee and XS

    If you are just guys, then you are waiting in line. A long line.

    Whatever your IDS are they are fine in Vegas. The clubs know that millions of overseas visitors come to the clubs. No worries there.

    Getting a cheap table and bottle service is going to cost you at those clubs. But, you get right in to the club no line.

    Ghost Bar and Ghost Bar Day Club, are not the hot spots they used to be. GBDC just started last year.

    I have been to Ghost Bar(too many times to remember) and GBDC.

    I am willing to wager that the GBDC will be easy to get into, no line. If you are in Vegas in May, I would just hang out at the pool at Palms on Friday. The Plams Pool and Ditch Friday's rock. It is a club scene with people just wearing swimsuits.

    My GBDC trip
