The Bank Nightclub
Fun to try once, but not to go again
So here's the deal.
Pros: AWESOME ATMOSPHERE. One of the best decorated Vegas clubs I've been too. The layout of the club was great. The music was pretty good: a mix of R&B, Todays Hits, and some typical club music.
Cons: Spent $85 on VIP front of the line passes for my boyfriend and I, which meant nothing. There is no "line" to get in, just a crowd of people. After talking with 6 different club bouncers and waiting 35 mins we were finally let in with our VIP front of the line passes... Ridiculous. Althought the music was decent, DJ Five had HORRIBLE transitions, as in there would be a solid minute between songs of slow music, causing everyone on the dance floor to just stand there waiting for the next dance song to begin. Also, he played 11 songs TWICE during our 3.5 hours there, that's a big club no no. Lastly, I know Vegas nightclubs have super expensive drinks, but The Bank is the most expensive I've had. $32 for 2 Long Islands served in small rock glasses and were hardly strong. What a rip off.
Overall, fun place to try once. When you do go, don't waste money on the VIP passes and get drunk before the club so you don't waste money on their tiny watered down drinks.
* If this is your first time in Vegas or you're here for a big celebration, go to Tao, Lavo, or Haze. Those clubs are amazing. Atmosphere spectacular, music impeccable, and front of the line passes at those clubs means you really do get in front of the line. You'll only wait 5 mins or less. *

Didn't get what I paid for
To begin with, at the entrance there is a large unorganized mob, unlike other clubs that have specific lines to maintain crowds orderly. Luckily we didn't have to stand in line as long as others because of the VIP tickets we purchased. We went to the bar happy and excited. Until the bartender asked us for our tickets. I asked what he was referring to. He said at the entrance each of us were supposed to be given tickets. I went back out to the attendant that had let us in. He said, there should be a girl at the top of the escalator (entrance of the club) handing them out. It seemed weird as I hadn't noticed anyone handing anything out. I went back up the escalator, no girl, no podium. I went back down. Asked to speak to an appropriate party that could help me. I was sent to speak to approximate 5 different guys that were all dealing with loud crowds, and chaos. Long story short, my "unlimited drinks" clause from 10:30-12pm (part of my VIP terms) was not acknowledged. We were given two tickets each for drinks. By this time it was 11:45pm and tickets expired at 12am. Sooo...even though music was great. I was dealing with this issue for a whole hour and my two drink tickets would expire in 15 minutes. I didn't enjoy that part of the night very much which was unfortunate because we had made all these plans for my sister's bachelorette trip.

Poor Service on entry into the club
The customer service was very poor on entry into the club, waited almost three hours to enter and we pre-paid for tix thru Vegas.com...bouncers are extra shady and rude.

Better on a Thursday than Saturday
Went on a Thursday night and had a blast. So much that i went back on Saturday and i was just too packed with a crowd guys/gals not nearly as attractive as the Thursday before. Awesome combo of house and hip-hop though will return on future visits on Thursday for sure!

Buying ticket in advance is not a good idea.. My friends and i didnt get in even though we bought tickets in advance. Dont recomend to anyone. Everyone there that bought tickets didnt even get in.

A little confusion while trying to get in, couple different lines not clearly marked. Opened about 20 minutes late when we got in they said the ladies don't have unlimited drinks due to Memorial Day weekend. We showed Them our email (MAKE SURE TO BRING WITH YOU) and they were more then welcome to honor it! Great time with sky blue from LMFAO. Upbeat fun crowd. Security is on point defusing 2 situations before they became a problem. Can't wait to go again!

DO NOT BUY PRESALE TICKETS TO THIS PLACE UNLESS YOU PLAN ON BEING THERE 4 HOURS EARLY! WHEN I ARRIVED, BEFORE 12 LIKE THE TICKET SAYS THERE WAS A HUGE LINE OF PEOPLE. VIP MEANS ENTRY - BUT THEY WERE NOT LETTING ANYONE WITH THE SO CALLED VIP PASSES IN. ALL THE PEOPLE, OR WORKERS OUTSIDE WERE ASKING FOR MONEY JUST TO SKIP THE LINES AND ETC. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY
