Finally! After two long years, the new TAO Beach will reopen just in time for the 2022 spring pool season.
Everybody loves a comeback! TAO Group Hospitality boasts that the new and improved TAO Beach has been "completely reinvented," and from the renderings we saw, they ain't lying! This reinvented space will "raise the bar for pool party experiences" with a 47,000 sq. ft. breathtaking, Balinese-inspired tropical oasis created by TAOs favorite global architecture and design team, the award-winning Rockwell Group. The club is designed with orange and warm wood tones and various art installations. It includes two 15-foot-tall sculptures by Daniel Popper, a famous artist known for his larger-than-life sculptures. He created a pair of sculptural hands at the entrance and a tree goddess that welcomes guests to the main bar.
This rooftop pool deck has doubled in size and can welcome up to 3,000 sun worshipers and clubbers. It's surrounded by lush scenery, 21 luxury cabanas, 7 VIP cabanas featuring private plunge pools, a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system, poolside dance space, and an ultra-modern DJ booth set center stage with Swedish Superstar DJ Alesso and platinum-selling DJ and producer Fisher at the helm. The upcoming pool season will also showcase several other top artists and live performers, including Grammy-nominated producer and Black Book Records founder Chris Lake.
Capitalizing off the menu at the award-winning TAO Asian Bistro, the Beach Club will feature a feast of seafood towers, oversized sushi boats; sashimi carved tableside, crafted hand rolls, and so much more. If you want the ultimate TAO Beach experience, splurge for a cabana and bottle service! That is a preview of what you can expect at the new TAO Beach Club. From what we can tell, the transformation was worth the wait!

At the podium, you will be given a stamp and instructions on which elevators to take.

What's the Tao Pool Party Vibe?
TAO is the pioneer of nightlife in Las Vegas. Guests can expect a "nightclub" vibe during the day and a wild and crazy pool party with fantastic DJ sets. Check out what events are happening on the link below by entering your dates of arrival. Some of the popular residents that call Tao home are Alesso, Kaskade, Martin Garrix, Illenium, Party Favor, Loud Luxury and Steve Aoki. Come to swim, party, and enjoy the music. For anyone interested, Sunday is the Industry party. Check out all of the Tao Beach Events!
How much is it to get into the Venetian Pool Party?
General Admission tickets vary from event to event, with bigger EDM headliners commanding higher price points (anywhere from $20-$50 for female tickets and $30-$100 for male tickets). Keep in mind that prices online are typically not the same as the price at the door; club management will always have the final say on what to charge if you don't buy a Tao Beach ticket before doors open.
Males $40 - $100+
Females $20 - $50+
If you don't want to deal with the hassle of sorting out entry into the venue on your own, we offer a seamless process and fantastic packages, including hosted VIP entry into the club by one of our VIP Hosts. Also, if you have a group and tickets are pricey, check out our cheap bottle service deals in Sin City!
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 Tao Beach 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.
Sunday and Thursday:
Males – Free Entry before 1 AM check-in with an even ratio
Females – Free Entry before 1 AM check-in
Friday and Saturday:
Males – Free or Discounted Admission (depends on headliner – early arrival recommended) with an even ratio
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 days, 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 dayclubs offer an open bar for ladies? It's true! Check out our complete guide to Las Vegas Open Bar Deals.
What Does Tao Bottle Service Cost?
Tao Pool has several areas within the club that offer different pricing tiers for bottle service:
Jungle Cabana- $$$$$
Lotus Cabana- $$$$
Temple Cabana - $$$
Prime Daybed - $$
Daybed and Terrace Table- $
Each area has several tables that have varying minimum spends. On a non-peak day, a table in the Cabanas might start at $5,000 minimum spend but could just as quickly go for $10,000 on a busier pool party.
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.
Stage Cabana (15 People)
Many of the hottest ladies in Vegas like to chase the big-name DJs and be up near the DJ booth. If you are into those type of women, or just really like the artist then you stage cabanas are for you. There are four large cabanas right behind the DJ booth, unfortunately these don’t boast private pools.
Lotus Cabana (15 people)
The Lotus cabanas are large, they are elevated and have direct view to the DJ. These are considered prime and there are only four of them, they only drawback is they do not have their own private pools.
Jungle Cabana (15 people)
Another raised section with shared VIP plunge pools. There are thirteen of these roomy cabanas and they fetch a premium on all days. Nothing beats a cabana with a private pool.
Temple Cabana (10 people)
The lower end option for cabanas, a row of six cabanas in front of the temple bar. These sections are elevated and have all the amenities such as a flat screen TV, bar, and sectional sofa.
Terrace Table (6 People)
The entry level sections for the beach club are the terrace tables. Perfect for six people or less looking for a home base on the pool deck. These sections are mainly in front of the cabanas and slightly elevated.
Prime Daybed (10 People)
The best “prime” day beds on the pool deck are around the main pool and in front of the DJ booth, they are more in the action then the regular day beds.
Daybed (10 People)
There are several day beds mainly around the secondary pool that are considered “regular” daybeds. These are still great sections with plenty of action around.
What exactly is table/bottle service?
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"? Are Bottles Extra?
The dayclubs and nightclubs in Vegas 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?
Yes, 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?
As many as you can fit into your minimum. Bottle prices start at $750 and vary in price depending on whether you want a specific type of alcohol or a larger bottle. For example, suppose you have a $2,000 minimum and don't want to go over the minimum. In that case, you could theoretically get about two bottles (assuming you order the $750 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 $1500 minimum booked (and don't go over that total), here's how the final bill would break down:
$1500 (Min Spend)
$136.96 (Nevada sales tax is 8.375% on Min and Venue Fee)
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 day, 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 or section
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 $2000 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.
What is a Vegas Promoter Girl Guy?
Let's say you are a group of guys who want to buy bottle service. A girl guy's (at Tao, 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 $100 an hour per girl for a 4-hour minimum.
How much are drinks at Tao?
Cocktails start around $15, shots $15, and beer and wines are $12. Tap Beach will be on the higher end drink wise.
Vegas Bachelor Parties
Some of the best bachelor parties in Vegas happen during the day– it's called "day clubbing" – like a nightclub during the day, and one of the best spots for day clubbing will be at the reimagined TAO Beach. Take well-known DJs, great music, a private bungalow, and bottle service, and you have the ultimate day party. At Exploring Las Vegas, we have several packages with bundling opportunities. Click on the link below.
Las Vegas Dayclubs are perfect for Bachelorette Parties. These daytime destinations are the most fun you will have in the sun, and they are ideal for a bachelorette party or a girl's day out. We have several packages we can bundle with TAO Beach Club. Click on the link below and get in touch with one of our expert planners at Exploring Las Vegas. We have plenty of bundling parties with Drag Brunch, pole dancing, and even 🚁 helicopters.
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.

Exploring Las Vegas gives our customers the full Vegas VIP experience. Check out some of our other guides below to get the most out of your Vegas trip!
TAO Beach is one of the most upscale beach clubs in Sin City. There is an enforced dress code of beach attire, no exceptions, even if you don't plan to get into the water. Check out our dress code guide for more information.
Before entry, all guests are required to turn out their pockets (for ladies, they will look in your purse), submit to a metal detector test, and make sure everyone entering is not bringing in anything dangerous. It's equivalent to going through the TSA line at the airport. This applies to all guests, whether you are going in with a table or General Admission.
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.
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.
Prescription medication (or anything resembling pills) – if you need a specific type of prescription medication while 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

The wait is over! The expansion and renovation of TAO Beach have been two years in the making. Party-goers will soon be flocking to Vegas this pool season to see what the hype is all about. I once heard someone describe the old TAO Beach as something that looked like his "parents” backyard with a tiny pool and a bunch of reserved beach chairs." The new TAO Beach is stunning; it has more than one ‘tiny’ pool, has doubled in size at 47,000 sq. feet, and can accommodate 3,000 people. So, in case you were wondering, it's definitely worth the hype and then some! They will complete head to head with Encore Beach Club, AYU Dayclub, Wet Republic, Elia Beach Club, Marquee Dayclub, Daylight, and Drai’s Beach.
