On New Year's Day, 2020, the Sahara Hotel unveiled its new nightlife destination, Azilo Ultra Lounge. Located in the center of the hotel next to Azilo Ultra Pool, this hip and happening place is dripping in luxury. It features an intimate atmosphere with stunning decor, a full-service bar with specialty cocktails, and live entertainment. Every Friday from 9:30 PM – 1:30 AM, guests can experience high-energy entertainment when Las Vegas local DJ Marloun Dasoul, a.k.a., "The DJ Violinist,"performs his Top 40mixwhile integrating his electric violin into the sets.
Every Saturday evening will be a live DJ set from The Frenchies – DJ Flowfly and Chris Garcia. One Saturday evening each month, Azilo Ultra Lounge will transform into VIBRA – a party with house/urban music, Cirque performers, and sexy dancers. Azilo Ultra Lounge is the perfect place to grab a drink or spend the evening sipping spirits and listening to music.

Where is Azilo Ultra Lounge located?
At the North end of the strip just before Sahara Avenue you will find the newly-remodeled Sahara Hotel at 2535 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Pro Tip: There are 2 parking garages, and this can be confusing and difficult to navigate. I had a girlfriend of mine leave Magic Mike Live and get lost for 45 minutes trying to find her car! I suggest they venue in the garage off Paradise Road, packing is closer to that parking garage.
What Nights is Azilo Ultra Lounge Open?
Fridays from 7 PM – 2 AM
Saturdays from 7 PM – 2 AM

Azilo Ultra Lounge Guestlist vs. Presale Tickets: What's better?
Getting on the Guestlist is a FREE SERVICE to sign up for, but here's the catch: You have to get there early. In the case of a marquee headliner where online prices are sky-high, and guests are getting in for free on the Azilo Ultra Lounge guest list, you can be sure that the lines to get in on the list will be out the door.
In this case, it is always advisable to arrive early before doors open to secure your spot at the head of the line.
Here's what you can expect on the guest list:
Males – Free or Discounted Admission (depends on headliner – early arrival recommended)
Females – Free Entry (early arrival recommended)
*Early arrival is required for Saturday events, especially with big headliners. Guestlist details are subject to capacity – if the club hits near capacity with the lines outside still full of people, the club may decide to start charging people early.
Suppose you're planning on attending a big event and can't get there early. In that case, you might want to investigate purchasing General Admission tickets in advance to avoid paying the inflated price at the door and to guarantee your entry. Pre-purchased tickets automatically guarantee access to the venue; the Guestlist does not!
Pro Tip: Club guestlists are geared more toward female patrons. All-female groups typically have a little more leeway in terms of arrival time on big nights, while groups with males in their party might not have the same time luxury. Contact your Exploring Las Vegas host to find out what the best course of action is for your group.

What Does Azilo Ultra LoungeBottle Service Cost?
Azilo Ultra Lounge has several areas within the club that offer different pricing tiers for bottle service:
Cabanas - $$$
Lounge Area - $$
Main Floor - $$
Each area has several tables that have varying minimum spends. On a non-peak night, a Cabana might start at $400 minimum spend but could just as quickly go for $800 on a busier night.
Pro Tip: Not all locations are created equal. Be sure to view the guide below to see which table is right for you and your party or contact one of our VIP Hosts for additional recommendations.
Table Service Locations
While there really are no terrible tables in the venue, below is a list of insights into the different table areas and what to expect.
Cabanas (6 people)
The most desirable tables are the cabanas. These seat six people comfortably and have a view into the pool area. There are six total cabanas, 3 on the left side and 3 on the right.
Main Floor Table – Booth (4-8 People)
On the main floor there are several booths that are perfect of groups of four to eight people. There are half booth and a couple of chairs in the center of the action.
Lounge Are Table (2-8 People)
Elevated above the main bar area is the “lounge” with tables for two, four, six, and eight people. Just out the main bar traffic but still in the mix, perfect for a conversation.
We have negotiated some deals on a couple of bottle so our customers can get a great table and a couple of bottles for less than retail prices.
What exactly is table/bottle service?
By definition, bottle service means that the customer purchases their alcohol by the bottle and not individual drinks at the bar. In Vegas, this equates to paying a premium price for bottles but includes a table inside the club, a personal server for your section, and VIP entry into the venue. Basic mixers are also complimentary with any table reservation – assorted juices and soda and garnishes like lemons and limes. Essentially you agree to spend a certain amount of dollars to rent the space for the night.
What is a "minimum"? Do I have to pay for a table separately from bottles?
Clubs often operate on a minimum spend requirement (or "min," for short) system for their table reservations. The customer must either reach or exceed the amount set for their minimum spend. While the table is not charged separately, the better the location, the higher the minimum spend requirement. To reach this minimum requirement, the customer can order anything from the beverage menu (bottled alcohol, cases of beer, bottled water, Red Bulls, etc., all count toward your minimum requirement).
Group size could also be a factor in raising your minimum spend. The larger your group, the more accommodations the venue has to make to provide the same VIP experience to its customers. For example, a party of 15-20 people will require a larger space than the typical customer and require more staff service; thus, their minimum would be much higher than a customer coming in with five people.
Is bottle service worth it?
Absolutely and without a doubt! It is the ultimate clubbing experience. While venturing onto the dance floor and exploring the venue are memorable experiences on their own, nothing is quite like being able to return to your own area, away from the crowd, and enjoy the artists' stunning performances. If your budget allows for it, I highly suggest booking Bottle Service. If you are a group of guys trying to pull girls or vice versa, tables are the 🔑 to help that process.
How many bottles do you get with bottle service?
Truthfully, as many as you can fit into your minimum. Bottle prices start at $350 and vary in price depending on whether you want a specific type of alcohol or a larger bottle. For example, suppose you have a $800 minimum and don't want to go over the minimum. In that case, you could theoretically get about two bottles (assuming you order the $350 ones) and fill the remaining minimum with small orders of beer/bottled water/Red Bulls/etc. Let your host know in advance, and we will coordinate with your server depending on your preference!
What is the tip for bottle service?
What you actually want to know is, "How much does bottle service really cost after fees?" Assuming you have a $2500 minimum booked (and don't go over that total), here's how the final bill would break down:
How do I make a reservation, and can I choose my section?
We make reservations simple - fill out a form, and one of our VIP Hosts will be in touch shortly to go over your options. The club's management determines where to seat each confirmed table reservation. We call this " plotting the room ". Once again, the higher your minimum, the better the location. We can request and promise specific table locations based on customer requests and podium tips. We call podium tips "Handshakes" in Sin City. Here's a couple of things that can help us deliver on our promises:
Arrive on time! We can secure your preferred table, but we cannot ask the venue to hold it the entire night, waiting for you to show up.
Agree to the recommended minimum for your preferred location. If you want a dance floor table, we can make that happen, provided you agree to the required minimum spend it takes to book it.
Plan on tipping for a specific table
How do I get my guests in if they arrive late?
Ideally, you want to have the whole group together when you walk to your table. However, we understand that sometimes life (or at least Vegas party life) gets in the way. Suppose your table has already entered and is sitting; in that case, the person joining you can go up to the host standing at the table reservation line and give your table number plus the name the table is booked under (you can find out your table number by asking your server or security staff if you are unsure).
How do I order a bottle presentation?
You must have a significant reservation booked (usually around $600 or more) and purchase a bottle of champagne to qualify for the presentation. Let your VIP Host know, and one of us will be happy to communicate this request to your server. On some occasions, for a birthday or special event, a bottle service waitress might bring a display out for much less, just ask your server.
I've heard of a Girl Guy Host. What is that?
Let's say you are a group of guys who want to buy bottle service. A girl guy's job is to approach your table and ask if you would like him to round up some girls to help fill out your table for a tip(we call that "handshakes" in the industry). He then does the legwork of recruiting girls around the venue to introduce them to your table. The girls are happy they get to join a table, your group is happy that there are girls at your table, and the girl guy walks away happy with a handshake. Everybody wins!
But before you employ any venue's girl guy, be sure to ask your Exploring Las Vegas VIP Host (like me) first. We will have plenty of female guests in town on any given weekend and will most likely know a few at this particular venue that we can invite to your table. If your group and the girls don't mesh for whatever reason, we can always ask the girl guy to try their hand at it.
We also offer atmosphere models for a group of guys who just want some pretty Vegas party girls to hang out with at the table and keep them entertained. A good rule of thumb is a $100 an hour per girl for a 4-hour minimum.
How much are drinks at Azilo Ultra Lounge?
Beers are around $8-10 and mixed drinks are $15+ depending on your preference. If your group is likely to spend over $100 each on drinks at the bar, you should consider purchasing bottle service.
Bachelor Parties in Vegas
Bottle service is the way to go for Bachelor Parties, and bottle service at this venue is the perfect pregame spot or a great way to end your evening. Bundle your bash with dinner and open bar deals, limo services, a visit to Vegas' famous strip clubs, and some atmosphere models to help get the night rocking.
If you're looking for a classy party for a bachelorette party that isn't too loud, too crowded, and won't break the bank, consider an ultra-lounge like Azilo. Our packages also have bundling opportunities with brunch and dinner options, a male strip club,or a male revue such as Magic Mike Live, which is located in the same hotel! 👰
We are a licensed Independent Host Company that works with all the top venues in the city, and we have a fantastic customer track record. The difference between hosts employed by the clubs and Independent Hosts is that we do not work for the clubs; we work for you; the customer. We offer ultra-reliable service, insider information, and always the best price. We can offer better deals and get better table locations than merely making a reservation online.

Make sure you have a valid picture ID with proof of age (21+). Please do not bring in anything that will get you into trouble and ruin your night. Have a look at our security guide for more detailed information.
Pro Tip: If you purchased a table and some unwanted people wander in by accident, it is always best to have the security staff ask them to leave instead of doing it yourself to avoid potential altercations. In the event of a confrontation between guests, both parties may likely be asked to leave. Security has the final say on such matters.
Vapes – while weed dispensaries are extremely popular and vaping is in vogue, most venues will not allow vapes inside their premises and will ask you to leave it in your room or at the very least throw away the cartridge inside, even if it isn't a CBD cartridge.
Camera equipment – the only recording equipment you are allowed to bring is the one on your phone. Digital cameras, selfie sticks, et al., are not allowed into the venue.
Prescription medication (or anything resembling pills) – if you need a specific type of prescription medication while you are inside the venue, you will have to bring the prescription and explain what the medicine is for; otherwise, expect to get pulled to the side.
Packs of gum – this only applies to day clubs, which tend to be a lot stricter about checking everything that goes into the venue, but guests have been known to try and sneak drugs inside packs of gum to get them into the venue, so expect to have your gum taken away at the door.
Oversized bags – anything larger than a lady's clutch will be denied into the venue. This applies to most backpacks, gym bags, totes, etc. While most hotels can hold onto your luggage at the bell desk
Let's look ahead. What's happening on New Year's Eve 2023?
December 31st is one of the most exciting times to be in Las Vegas when thousands of people gather together to ring in the new year. More than 400,000 people are predicted to come to Vegas in 2023 for the celebration. Some will head to the Strip for a first-class firework show; others will hit the strip joints and nightclubs with VIP bottle service. Some will venture to the bars Downtown for the NYE drink specials, and adventure seekers will fly into the new year on the Slotzilla Zip Line. The world-famous Fremont Street Experience will usher in the new year with live bands on multiple stages, dancing in the street, and a midnight countdown on the Viva Vision Screen and at each stage followed by a two-minute pyrotechnic display. If you're interested in ringing in the new year in Sin City, contact your Exploring Las Vegas host, and we'll get you set up with a good deal.
Exploring Las Vegas Final Word
The Sahara is one of the oldest, most famous hotels in Sin City, and now that it has been reimagined, it is more popular than ever. The Azilo Ultra Pool and Azilo Ultra Lounge are two reasons people are venturing off the Strip and heading to the Sahara. The pool scene and party scene just got a bit more crowded. These venues are proof that you don't have to stay on the Strip to have fun in Vegas. We have some great options for dinner, Magic Mike Live, and just all around fantastic bottle packages. We look forward to working with you at the Sahara venues. 🤗
