Dress Code - Reference
||Rules Change - Clubs go in and out of
business all the time. What was fun in one decade isn't even in business the
next. What one hotels decides can change overnight. SO, If you are staying
at some elegant hotel, check the web-site, look at the photos of the hotels
night club to see what people are wearing,
this will be your best clue or wait until you check in and ask.
As a rule...
Depending on the club - A nice pullover, or dress shirt with some type of
collar will always work - We would never encourage plain t-shirts, jerseys
and definitely no cut offs, they are ever allowed. Wearing a suit would be
over dressed unless your name is Will Smith. However, if a suit is worn be
prepared to throw plenty of $$$ around and play the part.
Women usually wear anything from short shorts, Levi's with a nice top or
Show Dress Code
Shows Dress Code - Reference
Ask when you purchase Show Tickets about dress codes for
any particular show, some are different.
Dress Shirt & Dress Slacks / Black or dark suit / Tuxedo. You
will not look out of place at in production show dressed nice. Many
come to Las Vegas for long term anniversaries, taking their bride
out on town to a production show and dressing nice for them is an
Now I know what some guys are saying,
gettin me in know blasted suit" some anyway.
Production Las Vegas shows are
related to theater, if its a comedy show at a small club no one
cares what you wear. If though you show up at a production show to
be seated by a maitre d' in a
pair of cut-offs, tennis shoes and a t-shirt with your gut hanging
out of the bottom of the shirt take your chances at where you'll be
seated if not assigned. Most likely it will be assigned seating. So,
in either case hotel shows have rules most of the time. Maybe you
can tip the maitre d' $100 and he'll slip you in. Maybe the hotel
won't even care, they just want your $. Just double check.
Beautiful evening dress / outfit.
