The Lowdown

Hyde is kind of in its own category in the Vegas club scene. During the week, and from 5-10pm every day, Hyde is a lounge that anyone can pop into and have a drink while getting an amazing view of the Bellagio fountains. One night a week they even have live music. On the weekends and Tuesdays they close the lounge at 10pm and reopen as an intimate club.

It can’t compete on size or headliners with the mega clubs around town, but Hyde often has the best looking crowd in Vegas on any given weekend. It gets a lot of support from industry workers as well as people from Los Angeles, who frequent their Downtown LA and West Hollywood outposts. Their XIV special events are legendary.

The space is fairly small and filled with tables so generally it’s best to avoid general admission at Hyde. The DJs trend towards playing open format if you prefer that to EDM. For some reason Fridays seem to be more popular than Saturdays. Hyde doesn’t get the recognition that the bigger clubs get, and that makes it low key one of the best nights you can have out in Vegas!

The Venue

hyde_bellagio_floorplan.jpg

Terrace is open to the Bellagio fountains. Dance floor center in Grand Salon.

Hyde’s layout is pretty simple. You enter at the bottom left into the center of the room. The dance floor is surrounded by tables and the DJ just above the dance floor tables on the right side. At the bottom, in the Living Room, is the main bar. Theres a couple of tables there but otherwise space for general admission.

The dance floor isn’t very big so it tends to be quite compact if you aren’t at a table. On the other side is the terrace. One of the best spots in Vegas, you get a front row view of the Dancing Fountains. A few more tables outside and a smaller bar located on the right. A great place to get a break from the congestion inside.

 

Getting In

First check out my guide: Nightclubs: How Do I Get In?? 

Getting into Hyde follows the same rules as the other high end Vegas nightclubs. Since Hyde is on the smaller side, they can be pickier about who they let in. Make sure you’re looking the part any time you wanna go to Hyde.

Tickets: The tickets line for Hyde can be a bit slow. Especially if it’s male heavy they’ll keep people waiting to make sure they have a good ratio inside.

Guestlist: Girls should guestlist and arrive early. If your group has a good ratio you can also guestlist, though guys still pay sometimes.

Hotel guests: If you are staying at the Bellagio you get free entrance, but you have to be there early. Sometimes you can skip the line too if you’re a hotel guest.

M Life: No special privileges.

Bottle Service

Bottle service at Hyde is almost a must. The club just isn’t that big and most of the space is filled with tables.

Below I’ll give you the range of prices you can expect to pay for tables at Hyde. Min will be table minimums. All in means taxes, fees, handshake and all tips included. Low end prices are for regular nights and upper end will be for holidays and special events.

Main Room: Like most clubs the best and most expensive tables are around the dance floor. Hyde is no different. Really though because it’s such a small club there aren’t any bad value tables. Even being on the terrace you don’t feel completely disconnected from what’s going on inside like you would at a mega club.

  • Upper Dance Floor (#21-22B, 51-52B): Min: 2-4, All in: 3-5.6

Table tips:

  • Tables at Hyde are smaller than at the mega clubs. Big groups might need to get two next to each other.
  • Ask your host for bottle deals. Often Buy 2, Get 1 is available.
  • The Tier 3 tables can be good value and had sometimes for just a two bottle minimum.
  • Terrace and Living Room is usually a one bottle min.
