LAX nightclub at the Luxor is becoming a bit more accessible to the regular crowd. It is now run by Luxor instead of Angel Management / Hakkasan, and has removed some of its booths to make way for a larger main dance floor. What I am really surprised to see, though, is they have put their bottle service menu (with prices) online. You can see it here. You can also go the the LAX website and click the Bottle Menu button on the right. The rates aren’t bad for bottle service; $395 for Grey Goose, $300 for Bacardi, $395 for Patron.
LAX is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday starting at 10:30p. The standard cover is $30 for men, $20 for women. That cover is waived for bottle service / table reservations.
I recently posted about Caesars Entertainment raising and standardizing their resort fees. MGM Resorts has done a similar thing. Most of their resorts now have a $29 per night resort fee. That is $32.48 per night after taxes. Their mid- and lower level hotels have lower fees. Circus Circus has the lowest fee at $15 per night ($16.80 with tax).
As a general rule, the resort fee covers fitness center access, daily newspaper, high speed internet access, complimentary copying and faxing, boarding pass printing, plus free local and (800) calls.

Not too long ago if you tried to purchase a myVEGAS Reward while you were in Las Vegas, whether visiting or as a local, you would find only a handful of Rewards were available. This is changing. On a recent trip, I found that most Rewards were available. Freeplay and Comp Room Rewards were not available, but it appeared that everything else was. Even room rate discount rewards were available. The catch is that many of the prime Rewards now require at least a one night stay at an MGM resort.
