The Bellagio's nightclub offering begins with an escalator ride up and walk through an intimate foyer area, as if to not overwhelm you with sheer opulence up front. This also acts as a way of keeping the crowding to a minimum outside the club, but on busy weekend nights there can still be line of partygoers stretching out into the Bellagio.
Everything at The Bank symbolizes elegance. But it's an elegance that's set against a backdrop of either nihilism or a goth kid's bedroom. The gold accents are brilliant, and they intentionally contrast a darkness that most clubs attempt and few really embrace. The Bank's darkness is deep and beautiful. It knows how to keep you looking toward the dance floor whether you're at a table right by it or on the upper level gripping the railing.
Even the bottle service oozes class. The alcohol is delivered by two hosts in a giant, glowing, blue diamond, lifted overhead as if it were the throne of royalty. You'll feel like you broke into a vault and were rewarded with booze. It's a classic club from people who know opulence. And it's a dress to impress attitude where everyone brings their money bags. But don't worry if you don't have a ton of cash to deposit, you can on occasion find promoters outside in front of Bellagio handing out free passes.
