What is the Dress Code for Las Vegas Night Clubs?

Trying to decide on what to wear to the club can be annoying and sometimes overwhelming, because, regardless of body type, what you wear to the club matters. Most all nightclubs in Las Vegas will enforce a strict dress code whether you have bottle service or are on the guest list. You have to admit, there’s nothing worse than standing in line for 30 or more minutes, getting to the front of the line, and being told you don’t meet the dress code.
If you’re wondering how to dress for a night out in Vegas, the traditional dress code is this: Dress to Impress! However, a lot of clubs do have rules to adhere to for women and, particularly, men. When in doubt, a good nightclub dress code rule of thumb is to adhere to the dress code banned list in Las Vegas:

  • No Sandals
  • No Work Boots
  • No Athletic Shoes
  • No Athletic Attire
  • No Hats (stylish headwear may be exceptions)
  • No Jerseys
  • No Loose Fitting or Baggy Jeans
  • No Jean Shorts

For men, dress pants aren’t usually required, so choosing whatever makes you feel comfortable is best. But, be careful with t-shirts – if it’s fitted and fashionable, it may work, but it can be a bit risky. If you do wear one, layer on a jacket or sport coat.

Ladies, on the other hand, have a bit more freedom when it comes to the dress code. However, there are instances where flip flops and sandals are looked down upon. There usually are no nightclub rules directed at women. Bouncers at clubs are usually on the look-out for attractive groups of women. Generally, women should dress to the nines and sometimes will be escorted to the front of the line or may get in even without paying cover.

For women, general dress code guidelines are to:

  • Don’t make the mistake of looking overly-sexualized. Make sure your outfit fits appropriately and covers the right areas, isn’t see through, and doesn’t include any offensive labels or words.
  • Wear heels not flip flops

Ideas for Nightclub Attire for Men:

Guys, dress business casual. A tie is not required, but dress like you are applying to a management position. If you are not sure what to wear that abides by the dress code, you can always play it on the safe side and go with a nice fitting pair of jeans, dress shoes and a button up shirt or sport coat. Put simply, a collared button – down shirt and nice slacks is ideal and will ensure you will get pass the bouncers.

Or maybe you want to class it up even more! Go with a suit – just make sure it’s tailored. There’s nothing worse than a suite that does not fit.

Ideas for Nightclub Attire for Women:


Most women at night clubs dress to impress. They show a lot of skin, appropriately, and wear ultra – chic, fashionable dresses. Most women opt for short dresses, heels, and a small clutch. If a dress is not your favorite choice, put on some trendy shorts with a cute top and pumps.  So, girls, look the part. If you can’t decide what to wear out in Vegas, a LBD (little black dress) with some unique accessories are a great start for a night out.


But remember, the dance floor will get hot and crowded so make sure you feel comfortable and is not weighed down by extra fabric or jackets. Readjusting your clothes every two minutes can really cramp your style, so make sure you are wearing an outfit that makes you feel confident and comfortable.


It usually isn’t uncommon for two people wearing basically the same thing to receive different reactions at the door. If you have a particular night club in mind, be sure to check their website for specific guidelines. For example, the dress code at Hakkasan Nightclub (MGM Grand), requires “upscale fashionable attire.” Hats, sandals, sneakers, hard soled shoes and boots, ripped or baggy clothing and athletic wear is not permitted, and collared shirts are required for men. The dress code at 1 OAK Nightclub (The Mirage), on the other hand, is listed as “upscale chic” — no hats, t-shirts, chains, excessive jewelry, athletic wear, shorts, baggy attire, sunglasses, sandals/flats, or tennis shoes. You’ll notice those exclusion lists are somewhat the same, which is a good rule of thumb to keep in mind when planning your next clubbing trip out here.


If you’re going to go to a club then you must bring it! There is no reason to leave it in the hotel room. You got it, so flaunt it. To make sure you get into some of the hottest clubs here in Vegas, the dress code’s bottom line is:

  • No sneakers (sometimes you can get away with Vans), shorts, sandals, team related hats, athletic clothes, or revealing clothes like your bottom or top is about to fall off
  • Allowable items: Small purses, makeup, necessary med prescriptions (at club’s discretion)
  • Prohibited items: Selfie sticks, large purses/bags, makeup compacts, any form of pills, sunglasses (although it is allowed to wear sunglasses inside a club, you will 100% look out of place and is highly looked down upon, in fact, there’s a 100% chance everyone else is making fun of you)

Simply put, dress to impress! If you follow this advice, you’ll always turn heads and will ensure you’ll get into the best clubs in Vegas. And don’t forget, let us help you experience all the VIP Vegas party deals. Call us today!
