Vegas Uncovered a guide to the Las Vegas Strip

BANK (rupt) Nightclub at Bellagio Las Vegas

truly is a terrible nightclub that does a real disservice to the greatness that is the Bellagio.  It is disappointing that one of Las Vegas’ most opulent hotels has created one of the most unappealing and least atmospheric nightspots.

Entry to Bank is expensive compared to other night spots on the strip.    The club is accessed by two escalators that send you into a moodily lit club.  If you have even seen one of the LA clubs featured on The Hills MTV show you will get the idea.  The club décor is nice but uninspiring.

The club itself is surprisingly small designed around a single dance floor.  Steps from the bars lead down past two levels of VIP seating to the dance floor.  When dancing you feel like you are in amphitheatre being inspected by the VIP tables.  The dance floor itself is rectangular with seating set into an alcove on one side.

The biggest problem with the club is that it lacks any discernible atmosphere.  Compared to JET and PURE, which bounce to happy partying folk everyone in BANK looked miserable.

On the night we visited the DJ was trying to mix Persian dance music.  Not only did the tune selection suck, the DJ couldn’t mix at all.  When a song did rouse a resemblance of life from the dance floor the tune was pulled and another terrible track dropped.  The DJ could not read the room at all, which meant at regular intervals streams of people filed off the dance floor simultaneously to visit the bar.

To its credit the bar staff are cool and friendly.  It was easy to get served and there were plenty of staff to ensure people were not waiting around.

The quicker the Bellagio produces a nightclub with the same pedigree and prestige as the hotel and casino the better.  The Bank is BANK-rupt avoid at all costs!

Ruling against Las Vegas Gym in sex discrimination may have a knock on to Las Vegas Clubs

Could this be the end of Ladies free entry to Las Vegas nightclubs or free drinks for the ladies ? Interesting story in the Las Vegas Sun

Todd Phillips, a pale, slender and soft-spoken man who wears glasses, doesn’t look like a much of a tough guy.

And yet his persistence in pursuing a discrimination complaint he filed against a chain of local gyms — resulting in a public hearing by the Nevada Equal Rights Commission’s board Friday and a court order forcing the gyms to comply with a ruling in Phillips’ favor — is almost sure to shake up the lucrative nightclub industry in Las Vegas casinos, while establishing Phillips as an unlikely symbol of civil rights.

With a 3-1 vote Friday, the commission ruled that a Las Vegas Athletic Club promotion offering free memberships to women is discriminatory.

Las Vegas nightclubs typically offer free admission to women while men pay steep fees to get in — a policy that has been virtually stamped out in other states because of lawsuits like Phillips’.

Yet Friday was mostly an embarrassment for the Las Vegas Athletic Club, which was asked how the promotion could be reconciled with other forms of discrimination.

Phillips questioned whether a soul food restaurant should be able to offer discounts to attract white customers. Board members piled on, asking whether it would be appropriate for the gym to offer free memberships for, say, Catholics.

When the gyms’ owner said the promotion was intended to encourage women to patronize gyms in part because men accumulate more bad debts, a deputy attorney general asked whether the company had done similar studies on black versus white customers.

At the hearing, an attorney for the Nevada Resort Association, which represents major casinos, complained that the decision would have ramifications for businesses unable to make their cases.

Too bad, the board said — casinos weren’t party to the complaint.

When I first visited Las Vegas getting into clubs was a nightmare you end up standing in line for ages and then half the time don’t get in, you then have to tip the bouncer, the guy the with the clipboard, the waitress and this is on tip of paying a $40 cover charge. I don’t have that problem now since meeting my good friend Darin Feth and using his Nitetours service clubbing in Las Vegas has become easy, affordable and fun. Darin has provided me with is latest press release and offers which is listed below, I have had many friends both form the UK and US who I have recommended Nitetours to and without exception they have all had great nights.
