Longtime nightclub “The Bank” at the Bellagio is closing Monday after a nearly eleven-year run at the property. At one time the beautiful 11,170 square foot Bank with its glass encased dance floor was one of the hottest clubs although in recent times may have been overshadowed by other clubs.
The Bank often would have the hottest celebrities of the time either guest hosting or as dj’s including stars such as Iggy Azalea, Jaime Foxx or Bruno Mars. No word yet from MGM Resorts on what will replace the The Bank although if you need other options at the Bellagio then the Hyde with its amazing views of the Bellagio fountains from its patio terrace and, the Lilly Lounge are good choices.
At one time every large resort would have a huge state of the art nightclub and seemed like a way to print money with VIP tables and $300 to $10,000 bottles of highly marked up alcohol while they listen to electronic music; but it seems the top clubs such as XS, Marquee and Hakkasan make huge profits while others are less profitable in a very competitive Las Vegas market.
