    What are the bars like now?

    Are the bars pretty much opened now? Do they need reservations or can you just walk in?

    Makes sense, I know they are requiring bottle service right now but hopefully that changes. I saw that the governor just opened up to 50% so maybe things get back to normal quicker. I imagine that day clubs will fill up since they are outdoor.

    Hopefully we get a better idea of how things will be in the next few weeks.

    The only thing I would consider booking now is flights and hotel rooms. I think as we get word that more things are opening the prices will start to claim. Not everyone is going to get back out there right away but I think there is enough people to fill Las Vegas up pretty quickly on weekends in May as more people get the vaccine and understand that the science shows it is safe for young vaccinated people to live a normal life again.

    With that said, I don't know that bottle service is a must to have a good time. We will likely see a re-entrenchment of vegas nightlife is. I don't think places will be having to go over the top to book the most expensive music acts in the industry to be competitive and in turn sell 10K tables to be able to turn a profit.

    Iíll be down May14th weekend. Considering everything is opening back up, do you think I should contact hosts early?

    Usually I reach out a week before but was thinking 2 weeks + might be better?

    Thoughts?

    I had some friends in town and instead of going to a club we decided to hit a lounge. We normally do Clique but tried somewhere that we haven't been before. I don't want to say the name and dry snitch on them. Honestly the only way you could tell it wasn't pre Covid was people had masks on coming in. The vibe was good, music was good, and the crowd was good. We were told it was a $50 min spend for each person and that it was an hour time limit. I guess to keep people from ordering one drink and just sitting. We got there around 10pm and didn't leave until after 2am. No one came and told us our time is up. So as long as your drinking you're good. As far as staying at your table or area, it wasn't enforced. They let you move about, join other groups, basically let you enjoy being out. It was good to be somewhere and not have to stay at your table. The talent was great. It was probably 4:1 girls to guys. The night got better when a twerkin contest started between groups of girls. Phones were out recording, it was so good the dj pulled his phone out to record. It looks like Vegas nightlife is making a comeback. MDW could be the first major weekend when everything is open. If that's the case make your plans now.

    Bar and lounges are open. Marquee and XS have been open but only with reservations. They were at max 4 people per table. As of this week, restaurants stopped reservations only and went to 6 max per table. I would imagine the clubs that were open went to 6 also but I think they are still reservations only. Omnia is opening in March but just the terrace. None of them are allowing GA. The target date is May 1st. If the numbers stay down and decrease we could have full nightlife and day clubs by the end of May. The strip has gotten busier each weekend since October. Everyone is thinking like you and missing Vegas. I've stayed down there a night or two on the weekends just to break up the monotony of work and home. It's not pre Covid Vegas but it's still a good time. The weather should be great in April. If you need a wingman to bar hop with let me know.

    I will be there April 9-12. More than welcome to meetup with me if you want. I looked at pushing back to May but the flight prices have doubled in the last two weeks. My trip currently booked basically costs nothing so I'm going to hold on to it. Maybe go again in the summer. PM me if you decide to head out.

    I'll be there May 1st. It should be interesting to see what the "lifted" restrictions will look like.

    Glad to hear things are getting better.

    The OMNIA terrace is the best view of the strip in my mind... well worth the $500. The tough part will be if they continue to enforce staying at your same table the whole tie. I enjoy talking to new people and meeting new people... lounging on the terrace for one bottle with my 3 guy friends, will be cool for an hour or so... but then we're out to a bar or lounge to meet people. It's what we did at marquee a few weeks ago. Hopefully slowly but surely we'll get back to normalcy. Can't wait!

    They actually are helping us out and not price gouging. Maybe it's a sign of times to come. The terrace at Omnia starting at $500 is not bad. EBC is the only one starting at $750. It should be a good start when it opens.

    Then the $500, $1k and $1,500 are not bad at all for the terrace. In all the times I have been to Omnia, I never made it up to the terrace. Well damn, decisions, decisions

    i haven't been on the terrace since they opened. always seem to be at omnia in the winter.

    The table min for the Terrace at Omnia are super low. Is this in line with what you were seeing at XS and Marquee? I mean flying out and getting a table for $500-$1,000 over looking the strip to just chill and drink, is damn inviting.
