The question is: who should you be contacting to make all your party plans? You've done a quick Google search, seen all the posts from people claiming they're VIP hosts or Las Vegas promoters or whatever else in Vegas – there's too many options! In the guide below, we will be touching on all you need to know about VIP hosts and Promoters in Las Vegas!

Host Verses Promoters


In most other clubs in other cities, there is little distinction between the two, but Vegas classifies its staff a little differently. Due to the large amount of business needed to support its venues, clubs in Las Vegas have created a separation of power between the two job titles.

As noted above, each Las Vegas nightlife position has a specific role in the grand scheme of things, and while each club has its own variations of their role designations, this is basically what you can expect from the different job titles.

Promoters – ever walk down Las Vegas Boulevard and get invited by someone handing out flyers in a club-branded polo shirt? That is your standard promoter, and their main job is to get people on the Las Vegas guest list and focus on driving large quantities of people to the venue. These promoters are usually employed directly by the clubs, work full-time, and usually aren't at the venues at night; their jobs are mainly to work during the day to drive traffic to the club that evening.

VIP Hosts – these are the guys (and ladies) you see in suits at the club at night, waiting for their bottle service guests to start showing up. Their primary job is to sell tables, build relationships with customers that come to their venue, and sell more tables.

Venue Hosts Verses Independent Hosts


As stated above, VIP hosts (in general) are there to build relationships with clients, and ultimately, sell table service for the venues they are contracted for, but what's the difference between someone who says he is a host at Marquee nightclub and someone claiming to be an Independent VIP Host?

Hosts employed by the venue are the people you see in suits (or uniform polos for dayclub events) at the front of each club. They are paid directly by that club and the company that runs it, and as such, will try and get their customers solely to their venues. Even though they are pretty much tied to the clubs that they work for, their biggest advantage is that they are always at their venues, which is especially handy for customers who walk right up to the club to make reservations instead of making one ahead of time.


Independent hosts are not tied to any one venue; instead, we use our relationships and connections with all the different venues and broker your deals for you as opposed to trying to funnel our customers to the same 2-3 venues; our aim is to offer an unlimited range of selections for our guests at any venue.

Think of it like shopping at a department store: each department has several associates that are available to help you and have a high knowledge of their own inventory but are unable to cross departments due to their obligations of staying in their own area – those are like your venue hosts.

And then you have personal shoppers who can assist in every department and can tailor selections to fit your needs – that is kind of what indies (the industry term for Independent Hosts) are like.

What’s are the Advantages of Booking with an Indy Host?


As mentioned above, we are not tied to any specific venues, and therefore can offer more optionality both with events and pricing. A table at XS nightclub with Calvin Harris performing a little out of your price range? No problem, we can get you set up elsewhere that gets you more bang for your buck. Looking to go all-out with Steve Aoki at Hakkasan nightclub? We can book your dance floor table there, too.

Our goal is not to try and shoehorn you into making a reservation at one specific venue but to put you into the best situation that fits your needs and wants; we work for you, the customer, not the club's mandate to hit a sales goal.

While some clubs advertise their retail prices for their tables on their websites, there is usually alternative pricing reserved for guests who go through a host, whether it's bottle deals or even lower minimums for specific table locations. Because we send business to every venue, we have a finger on the pulse of every venue's pricing and can give our customers more recommendations according to their needs.

We require a small deposit for all our bottle service reservations to avoid cancellations from our guests, but otherwise, everything is paid for on arrival or prior to the event, we do not charge any “hosting fee.” Keep in mind for future reference if you book without a host you're guaranteed to get the worst table in the club because no one's getting paid commission on your table.

I'm not sure if you used to host or not in the past, but you never want book online directly without a host. You will always get the crappiest tables and won’t know of any “special deals.” Working with me doesn't cost anything, I get paid commission by the club, so booking with me cost zero $0 extra

There are many different small nightlife entities that reside in the Vegas market, so it's best to try and vet the person you're working with as much as you can. If possible, work with a licensed company like ours that can back up our claims publicly. Most reputable companies will at least have a working website where you can make inquiries and reservations.

One thing's for sure in this City, if you do a lot of volume, people respect you for your work ethic and your business, not to mention the clubs who want to do business with you because you bring them a bunch of revenue. A lot of volume means volume discounts and the pick of the prime inventory, a.k.a. the best tables. Nowadays, it's very easy to look at Google and check reviews. If an "Independent Host" doesn't have legit reviews or a legit website, I strongly encourage you to walk away.

Exploring Las Vegas Google Reviews

The Nevada Gaming Commission has made it so real independent host companies need a license to do business with the clubs. Legit companies also carry insurance and a Clark County Professional Promoter's License. So, please make sure you do your homework before you work with any old host or company. When you work with a real brand like us, you get to leverage our relationships, our incredible network of ladies and customers, and our buying power to make your Las Vegas vacation a better experience.
