    I know that this club is elite. I heard that it is hard to get in, is that true? What if I have dinner there would entrance to the club be more easier?

    Tao used to be the HOT club in Vegas, but like all new clubs, they eventually become "played out" especially with the opening of newer clubs such as Marquee and Hakkasan so it won't be as hard to get in as when it first opened up. Don't get me wrong, it's still a poppin place, it's just that when newer places open up, the crowds tend to migrate over to them.

    Unfortunately just having dinner there won't get you any type of perks. If you are a staying guest of the hotel, you can get a line pass. Either that or show up with a group of super hot girls in micro mini skirts and you'll mysteriously find yourself inside the club in no time. :evillaugh

    If none of the above are options, either make reservations for a table or bottle service. If that is also not an option, just stand in line, 30 minutes max these days.

    Tao is not that difficult of a club to get into. Get a bottle if you are that concerned. Good luck

    This was a couple years ago but having dinner would get your hand stamped which put you in a faster/shorter line. But you still couldn't walk directly up the stairs into the club from the restaurant...

    My promoter has gotten me in here for free several Saturday nights with 1m/1f ratio. He got us in for free once when Bruno Mars was partying there. It's not always an option, though.

    Exactly. Back in the day we used to go to Tao and always got tables, it was a hot place back then and the crowds outside could get massive. Now it's closer to a second tier club but there's still a hot crowd there from what I could tell walking by it one night earlier this year.

    You might be mixing it up with Lavo next door if you heard about a long wait to get in. Also from your name it sounds like you're a girl, you won't have an issue.

    No club in Vegas is "HARD" to get in. If you're referring to the door being strict on who they let in, thats not the case in Vegas. Its not like some NY or LA clubs as you may be thinking.

    Many of the top clubs in Vegas have websites where you can get presale tickets. If you dont want to deal with general admission lines at the door, get presale tickets as they let those in immediately and usually just a couple min wait to get your ID checked and all that.

    The place isnt that big compared to the top clubs of Vegas. So only time it would be hard to get in is when you arrive at peak time and you are going on the gen admission line and waiting like everyone else,

    It is a second tier club. However, it still
    Has its moments and its own clientele.
    Not my scene but plenty of folks dig it.

    if your a girl and want to meet guys you should go to hakassan, i went there two nights in a row last week and it was mostly filled with guys both nights :grrr: plus it takes forever to get a drink and guys push each other. most of the space is for tables and if your a girl the tables have mostly groups of guys sitting around with drinks waiting for girls to come sit with them so thats what you should do for drinks. also go online and sign up on the guestlist,you still wait but its faster. have fun :beer:

    Its still a decent club. But its 1/8 the size of the other top 5 clubs in Vegas. It was well known back then since it was the it spot since the mega clubs havent opened yet.

    Don't know when you are going but if you want the wow factor go to Hakkasan, did pre sale there in July and had a blast http://hakkasanlv.com/ and The Light which has gotten rave reviews, have not gone to yet. http://thelightvegas.com/photos.php

    You can track their list of who is coming in to dj and both have the top guys currently.

    Hope this helps

    Tao is still a great club, always packed. With different genres of music its nice for all sorts. The biggest thing is go early or eat at the restaurant and ask if they can stamp your hand for nightclub. They pour pretty heavy if you tip ok, honestly it is my 4th or 5th favorite in vegas right now. Also depends on how many in your group.
