Tipping in Las Vegas

tipping

Tipping in Las Vegas is not just a courtesy; it's a necessity. In a city known for its world-class service and hospitality, tipping is an essential part of the experience. From the valet who parks your car to the cocktail server who brings you drinks on the casino floor, tipping is a way to show appreciation for the hard work of those in the service industry. Many people in Las Vegas rely on tips as a significant portion of their income. In fact, the minimum wage for tipped employees in Nevada is lower than the standard minimum wage, with the exception that tips will make up the difference. For these individuals, tipping is not just a nicety; it's a crucial part of their livelihood. When someone performs a service for you, whether it's serving your food, cleaning your hotel room, or giving you a massage, it is customary to leave a tip to show gratitude and acknowledge the effort that goes into providing top-notch service in a city that thrives on customer satisfaction.

In Las Vegas, tipping is not just about following social norms. It's about recognizing those who make your experience memorable. Whether you are enjoying a day out or a night on the town, tipping ensures that those who serve you are properly compensated for their service, so please tip generously. Your gesture will not only make someone's day, but it will also support those who work tirelessly to make your experience in Sin City memorable.



How Much Should I Tip?

tipping-guide

In the U.S., a customary amount for tipping is typically 15 to 20% of the total bill before taxes. It is important to show appreciation for good service by tipping appropriately. However, if the service was exceptional, consider leaving 20% or more. On the other hand, if the service was poor, you can leave 10% as a courtesy. Remember, tipping is a way to show gratitude for the service provided, so always consider the quality of the service when determining the tip amount.



What Happens If I Don't Tip?

If you don't tip, you risk being haunted by the ghosts of servers past, present, and future. They will haunt your dreams, whispering, "Where's my tip?" in your ear as you try to sleep. You may also find yourself cursed with perpetually cold food, lukewarm drinks, and slow service wherever you go. Your reputation as a cheapskate may precede you, causing servers to avoid your table like the plague. So, unless you want to invite the wrath of the service industry upon yourself, it's best to leave a tip. While it is not mandatory, if you don't leave a tip, you are being disrespectful and culturally inappropriate. Tipping is the right thing to do



Who Should You Tip in Las Vegas?

Las Vegas is a service-oriented town, and you will be interacting with a diverse range of service providers from the moment you arrive until you leave. Knowing who to tip and how much can be frustrating and confusing. Below is Vegas VIP Services Tipping Guide in alpha order:


Bellhops

bellhop

Store your luggage should you arrive before your room is ready or hold your luggage if you need to check out of your room before you are prepared to leave the property. They will deliver and pick you up from your room as requested. The customary tip is $1-$2 per bag or a flat fee of $5.


Casino Hosts

vegas-casino

Can hook you up with rooms, meals, bottle service, and more. This is all based on the amount you gamble. The more you gamble, the better the services. The gratuity should be based on the size of the hookup and if comps are included. Customary tips start at $20 and go up to $100.


Cocktail Servers/Restaurant Wait Staff/Bartenders/Bussers

cocktail-service

The majority of Las Vegas nightclubs, Vegas pool parties, and restaurants in Las Vegas auto grat, which means that no matter what you spend, you are going to be tipping the server 15 to 20% whether they do a good job or not; otherwise 15% to 20% is the norm. For the bartender even though drinks at the bar are overpriced, bartenders do not set the pricing. We recommend a $2-$5 tip per drink.


Front Desk/Concierge

front-desk

You might not think you would tip the front desk clerks, but remember, this is Vegas. Depending on the information they offer and how helpful and friendly they are, anywhere from $5-$10 is a good tip. A hotel concierge assists guests with various tasks like arranging spa services, show tickets, transportation, etc. A customary tip would start at $5, but if, for example, they score you a dinner reservation at the hottest restaurant in town, you should consider sliding them $10-$20.


Housekeeping

housekeeping

A suggested tip for housekeeping is $2 to $5 per day, but if you leave your room looking like a cyclone hit it, please consider leaving more.


Limo/Party Bus Drivers

driver

This is important, especially for those who are getting FREE limo rides on our strip club packages. These drivers run around Vegas, ensuring they arrive on time to make sure you stay on schedule, so a nice $5-$10 tip is greatly appreciated!


Restroom Attendants

It might seem ridiculous for restaurants and clubs to have restroom attendants, but they keep the restrooms cleaned, stocked, and organized, so $2-$5 per visit is a considerate gesture.


Rideshare/Taxi Drivers/Airport Shuttles

taxi

When it comes to tipping rideshares, taxi drivers, and airport shuttles, it is important to consider the level of service provided and the overall experience. For rideshares such as Uber and Lyft, it is customary to tip around 15 to 20% of the total fare. For taxi drivers, a tip of around 15 to 20% is also standard. Regarding airport shuttles, a tip of $1.00 to $2.00 per bag or per person is typically sufficient; however, if the driver helps with loading and unloading your luggage or provides exceptional service, consider tipping a bit more.


Room Service

room-service

Typically, the gratuity is included on the bill, but if the room service attendant sets up your meal, then add $5. If no gratuity was added, then leave at least 15%.


Table Dealers

dealer

Depends on how long you stay at the table and if you're on a winning or losing streak. It's entirely up to you whether you leave a tip; it's not required; however, when you leave the table, etiquette dictates that you should tip between 2-5% of your winnings.


Valet

valet

If valet is free, $5 is a good tip with an additional $1 per piece for luggage assistance; if, however, valet is $15-$20, then figure 20% of that for the tip. It is important to remember that the valet parking attendants do not set the parking fees, and while you are never obligated to tip, it is viewed as improper etiquette.


VIP Hosts

/brian-pfeiffer-vip-host

If the gratuity is not included on your bill, then leave an 18%-20% gratuity. At the clubs, an extra $100 "shake" or "handshake" goes a long way – this means you tip on top of your table minimum and the tip, tax, and venue. (The "shake" or "handshake" to the podium goes into the host's tip pool). When taking care of the front door, you can sometimes get moved to an upgraded table or a better location by doing so. For comped bottles and tables, the tip is 15-20% based on the price of the bottle. Considering most bottles in the city are anywhere from $600-$800 each, a $75-$100 tip should do the trick.

The above list likely does not cover all the service personnel you may encounter on your Vegas vacation. Some individuals may have to decline tips due to their company policy, but for the rest, tipping is a customary practice that can enhance the quality of service you receive. It's important to remember that offering a gratuity is not just about the money. It's about showing appreciation, recognizing hard work, and incentivizing exceptional service.

Pro Tip: Be sure to have a stack of small bills readily available for tipping. This will streamline the process, eliminating any unnecessary confusion and delays allowing for a smoother transaction and a more positive experience overall.

Owner Brian Pfeiffer on Tipping in Las Vegas

tipping-etiquette

Tipping in Las Vegas is not only necessary, it's practically a way of life. Now I know what you're thinking. Why should I have to tip? Isn't the price of the service enough? Well, let me break it down for you. In a town where the service industry reigns supreme, tipping is not just a nice gesture; it's a necessity. Think about it. The cocktail waitress who brings you that perfectly mixed martini, the valet who parks your car with a smile, and the blackjack dealer who helps you hit that elusive 21. These hard-working individuals rely on your tips to make a living. And let's not forget about the unsung heroes of the service industry – the housekeepers, the bellhops, and the cab drivers. These folks work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure your experience in Las Vegas is nothing short of amazing. So when someone performs a service for you, it's not only fair that they receive a little something extra.

But tipping in Las Vegas isn't just about doing the right thing; it's also about ensuring you receive great service in return. Let's face it, no one wants to be the person who stiffed their server and ended up with watered-down drinks all night. By tipping generously, you not only show your appreciation for a job well done, but you also set the stage for future interactions to be just as stellar. So the next time you're in Sin City, remember this simple rule: when in doubt, tip it out. Your generosity will not only make someone's day, but it will also ensure that your Las Vegas experience is memorable. In a town where luck can change in the blink of an eye, a little extra tip can go a long way.

If you want an alternative to the pricey clubs, we also have other extreme packages like skydiving, machine gun shooting, and supercar racing. We are experts at creating fun!
