    Just joined today, attempted to do a couple searches on the board to see what people have said about Gold Diggers and have come up empty. Looks like a couple people have also asked, but no replies.

    My wife and I will be headed downtown for the first time in well over 5 years. Traditionally when we stay on the strip, we always talk about going to a club... but eventually 'chicken out'. To be honest, not sure why. Maybe it's the scantily dressed women (wait, maybe that is a reason to go :wink2:).

    Does anyone have insight into Gold Diggers. Atmosphere? Dress attire? Music? When it opens?

    My last trip report I mentioned how my friends went to a club that seemed to cater to women with large, well, "assets". It was this club. I did not go, but my friends said the music was hip hop and R&B. And there was also a large contingent of women with large rear ends wearing extra tight clothes getting hit on by a lot of different guys. Not sure if that is how it is every night or if it was some kind of fetish night that evening only. They went on a Thursday night and there was no line at the downstairs elevator to get in. Hope that helps

    Thanks for the info! So far... doesn't sound like a lounge for us. Maybe someone else had a different experience.

    It's more of a bar / lounge than a real nightclub. I don't think there's even a cover charge. The clientele can be a bit lower class as a result though so I'm not surprised by the above comments.

    My advice would be to go and have a drink or two... if you don't like it then just leave, no big deal.

    Well said. That really did make it simple. Especially being there isn't a cover.

    I attempted to go there for the Toad concert at FSE 1st St stage...I wanted to watch from the balcony.
    They were asking a $5 cover, and told me that to get a patio table, there was a $300 drink minimum.

    That was more alcohol than my brother & I would be able to consume...shocking, I know...but true!
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    Gold Diggers is a fun time... I've been there twice though to be fair it's been a couple years since my last visit. It's not gonna provide the full Vegas nightclub experience like the top tier clubs, but then you're also not gonna have to max out a credit-card to spend a few hours there either. I LOVE the balcony that overlooks Fremont St. for some good people watching.

    +1. I was there last week and the balcony offers a great view for nightly concerts on the 1st Street Stage next to Binions. It opens @ 9:00 PM. As Topcard mentioned above they charge BIG TIME for special concerts. Usually you can get a free coupon for a free drink. Definitely a great view for people watching on Fremont Street. During the week it is not crowded at all on the balcony. Definitely worth a visit.

    I've always thought about heading up there and checking it out, but never have. Next trip I'm planning on going downtown on Tuesday, and of course they are closed on Tuesdays.

    I went in 2012 and had quite a blast. I feel awkward standing next to my shadow and I didn't feel at all out of place there as a 36 year old, not very well dressed, dude with friends. It was a lot of fun and carried over to the room: breaks applied before too much stupidity...

    We had the balcony booked there for our post wedding party. It was a ton of fun and the bottles were dirt cheap. The atmosphere is chill and music is pretty good although a bit loud inside by the dance floor. Only negative was they didn't allow you to wear hats.
