Commonwealth Guestlist vs. Presale Tickets: What's better? 

commonwealth

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 Commonwealth guestlist, 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 guestlist: 

Wednesday:

Males – Free Entry before 1 AM check-in  
Females – Free Entry before 1 AM check-in 

Friday/Saturday:

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.  

Get on The Commonwealth Guestlist

Suppose you're planning on attending a big event and can't get there early. In that case, you might want to look into purchasing General Admission tickets in advance to avoid paying the inflated price at the door and guaranteeing your entry.  Pre-purchased tickets automatically guarantee access to the venue;  the Guestlist does not! 

Get Commonwealth Tickets

Pro Tip: Club guestlists are geared more toward female patrons. All-female groups typically have a little more leeway for 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. 

Exploring Las Vegas Insider Tip:  Did you know that some nightclubs offer an open bar for ladies? It's true!  Check out our complete guide to Las Vegas Open Bar Deals.

What Does Commonwealth Bottle Service Cost? 

commonwealth

Commonwealth has several areas within the club that offer different pricing tiers for bottle service:

Upstairs Patio with View - $$$$
Upstairs Patio - $$$
1st Floor Tables- $$

Each area has several tables that have varying minimum spends. On a non-peak night, a table in the patio with a view might start at $600-$1000 minimum spend but could just as quickly go for $1500 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

Patio with a View

commonwealth

As long as the weather is nice, the best seat in the house is the large U booth on the rooftop patio with a view overlooking Fremont Street.

Patio Table

commonwealth

Near the cover bar on the upper level, you will find several tables in the action upstairs. These sections are great for 6-8 people.

Main Floor Table

commonwealth

If you are interested in the artist or act on the main level, there are some table options that are along the back wall. The main floor is one big room, so these are in the action.

Bottle Packages

We have negotiated with management some amazing bottle packages that are perfect for special events like birthdays. With these packages you get a great section and less then retail prices.

What exactly is table/bottle service? 

commonwealth

By definition, bottle service means customers purchase 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? 

commonwealth

Vegas nightclubs 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? 

commonwealth

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? 

commonwealth

Truthfully, as many as you can fit into your minimum. Bottle prices start at $300 and vary in price depending on whether you want a specific type of alcohol or a larger bottle. For example, suppose you have a $700 minimum and don't want to go over the minimum. In that case, you could theoretically get about three bottles (assuming you order the $300 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 $700 minimum booked (and don't go over that total), here's how the final bill would break down: 

$700 (Subtotal) 
$58.63 (Nevada sales tax is 8.375%) 
$0 (0% venue tax) 
$140 (20% tip to the server) 
$ 0 (Podium Tip for Location)
Total: $898.63

Just like you would with any investment (for example, buying a car), it's always best to assume that there may be more to pay than the retail price. We've included a handy tool below, but don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or need recommendations. 

How do I make a reservation, and can I choose my section? 

commonwealth

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. 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. 

How do I get my guests in if they arrive late? 

commonwealth

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.  If you arrive late and your party is already seated, give the table number and the name the reservation is booked under to the host at the table reservation line for assistance. (You can find your table number by asking the security staff if you are unsure). 

How do I order a bottle presentation?

commonwealth

You must have a significant reservation booked (usually around $500 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. 

Vegas Promoter Girl Guy Host. What is that? 

commonwealth

Let's say you are a group of guys who want to buy bottle service. A girl guy's (at Commonweatlh, they are called VIP Liaisons) 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.

Find out more about girl guys. 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 Commonwealth? 

commonwealth

Beers are around $8-10 and mixed drinks $12+ 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. 

Fremont Street Bachelor Parties 

commonwealth

There's nothing quite like showing out at Vegas' ultra-popular clubs with your boys for a final weekend of freedom. Bottle service is the way to go for Bachelor Parties planning a trip to the Vegas party scene; you're going to want a space to invite girls back to hang out! Bundle your weekend plans with dinner and open bar deals, limo services, or a visit to Vegas' famous strip clubs. Always consider booking some atmosphere models to help get the table started as we know many of the “boys” may have been out of the game for a while.

Corner Bar Management Security 

commonwealth

Patrons will be required to pass through security and a screening process. You must be at least 21 years of age and show a valid government-issued ID. International guests will need to show their passports for entry.

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.

Las Vegas Security Guide

What can't I bring into the venue?

Here are some things that you will be either asked to throw away or go back to your room to deposit before coming back:

  • 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.
  • Outside Food/Beverages
  • 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
