How Tao's Guest List Works

We at Exploring Las Vegas want to thank you for checking out our TAO Nightclub Guest List Page, and we are excited to make your vacation unforgettable.

Step #1: Submit a form. One of our team members will reach out to you and get you the details for the night and club requested. Each night is unique, and the rules change by the day.

The club is inside the Venetian and is pretty easy to find if you follow the signs. Ask your limo driver, cab, or rideshare to drop you off at the Main Valet. If you are driving, there is a parking garage on the property. Parking is free, but it can be at capacity on busy weekends.

When you arrive, head toward the casino, and look for the massive escalators left-center. Head up, and TAO will be upstairs on the right.

Be sure to break out the phone camera and take an Instagram moment 📸 on the balcony outside of TAO. Depending on the weather, guest list entry is usually on the terrace outside. If not, they will have it in front of the TAO Bistro.

Expect to wait a bit for a guest list entry, especially on large artist nights. For busy holiday weekends and famous artist's parties, you might want to consider tickets or our VIP Entry Service. Both tickets and VIP entry will guarantee you entry; the guest list does not!

Pro Tip:

Arrive early and check out "new kid on the block, Kamu Ultra Karaoke,located a short distance from TAO on the second floor of the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Palazzo. Kamu is not your average karaoke bar; it has private themed suites where groups of friends can eat, drink, sing, and party. It's perfect for a bachelor or bachelorette bash. We will be happy to set up a pre-game or after-party for your group.

What are the Benefits of the Guest List?


The clubs use the guest list to fill the room. The incentive is no or reduced cover to get customers in early and get them drinking. For listed customers, entry is usually free most nights for guys and ladies. Guys, you will have to pay a reduced cover charge on larger artist nights, but ladies are still complimentary. On nights when they do allow guys on the guest list, you will need an even ratio of guys to ladies or more ladies than guys, but not the other way around.

Be aware that holiday weekends are almost always jam-packed, and they typically cut the guest list altogether. If they do have a list, it might have some crazy rules like ladies only for an hour from 10:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. The best bet on big weekends is tickets. Tickets will guarantee you entry. The guest list will not.

What is the Cost of the TAO Nightclub Guest List?

Gender Males Females
Cover Charge $20-$75+ $20-$50+
Guest List Some nights are free with an even ratio. The majority of the nights are free.

*Note: Submit your guest list entry, and we will get back to you with the details.

**TAO requires an even ratio on the guestlist on many nights, meaning the same number of ladies and men in a group, or more ladies than men, but not more men than ladies.

***TAO has an open bar(Link new Ev Open Bar Guide) for ladies for a fixed time on many nights. We will be happy to set you up with that.

When they have a popular artist on Fridays and Saturdays, they will usually have a hefty cover. For men, you can expect $30 to $75+ each, and ladies usually $20-$50+ each. Get on the for:

  • · Ladies comp admission.
  • · Men comp or reduced.
  • · We recommend early arrival before 10:30 p.m. as they tend to close the guest list early.
  • · Hard cut off for list at 1 a.m. unless they close the list early.

What is the TAO Dress Code?


All the clubs in Las Vegas have a similar dress code that is strictly enforced. We have put together an Ultimate Guide. If you have any questions, ask your Exploring Las Vegas connection. Ladies and gents, please check the guide and keep it classy! Note: If you wear "Air Jordans," they will likely not let you in.

The Club Security


Vegas is a new world these days. You get searched when you head into a nightclub. At McCarran airport, we have TSA security. Think like that, but only stricter! They will look in your purse and your pockets, do a complete pat-down and pass everyone through a metal detector. We have a complete guide on Las Vegas Nightclub Security. We suggest you check it out if you have any questions; there is nothing worse than waiting in a long list line and then getting denied at the door. 😱
