If you’ve been to Las Vegas, you know the Strip can be overwhelming in several ways. From the sheer number of people and cars to the abundance of things to do and see, taking on Vegas can be an intimidating feat. Traveling with a large group of people can also add to the stress of traversing the Strip.
Before planning your night out on the town, you’ll need to do some organization for your entire trip. One of the easiest ways to cut down on travel-related stress in Vegas is to pre-book a private bus to shuttle everyone to and from hotels, casinos, and clubs. National Charter Bus works with a large network of bus providers to give you a varied selection of minibus options in Vegas.
Get the party started early on your bus with a few drinks and music over your bus’s entertainment system. A charter bus rental is a great way to ease the hassle of driving multiple cars among the Strip’s hectic traffic, and it’s the best option to keep your group safe throughout the night.
Sure, Las Vegas has attractions for the whole family, but the beauty of the Strip is that it’s a playground for adults. With dozens of casinos, bars, dance clubs, risqué dinner shows, and swanky lounges, it’s one of the most exciting places to plan a group trip.
Treat your close colleagues, best friends, or bride(s)- and groom(s)-to-be to a night of drinks and dancing. Leave the transportation to us!
Need a few ideas on what to add to your trip? Check out some top attractions that are perfect for adults craving the quintessential Vegas Strip experience:
Choosing which casinos to visit can be a tough call. There are around 30 casinos directly on the Strip with around 50 total casinos in the general Strip area. So choosing the best gambling spot is completely dependent on who you ask, how hard you’re planning to gamble, and what games you want to play. And if you’re hoping for a completely “kids-free” trip, whether than means your own or other guests’ children, be sure to avoid casinos like Circus Circus, which heavily cater to families.
These casinos are among the most popular “adults-only” spots in Vegas, known for their ambiance, service, and wide range of games:
Looking for a taste of Italian-inspired luxury? The Venetian and Palazzo are adjacent sister properties that are hailed for being among the most beautiful casinos in Vegas, as well as for being the largest resort complex in the city. The buildings combined offer more than 225,000 square feet of gambling space with an extensive selection of slots, table games, and exclusive poker rooms. Get together with a group of your favorite people and gamble under Renaissance ceilings, and then indulge in libations from Electra Cocktail Club or upscale bites at CUT by Wolfgang Puck.

If you want a luxurious gambling experience in a slightly (we really mean slightly) smaller playing space, the Bellagio is a beautiful alternative to the massive Venetian and Palazzo. But, don’t get us wrong— it’s still huge. The Bellagio poker room is well-known for being a favorite among professional gamblers, but the casino also has standard slots and tables for beginners. The resort complex is also famous for its dancing water fountains, conservatory, and gardens. Hit the slots and tables, have a few drinks, and then explore the beautifully manicured gardens and installation art.

Although the Golden Nugget is technically located a block or two from the Strip in the Fremont Experience, it’s often associated with the Strip, and as one of the oldest casinos in Vegas, it deserves a mention on any list. Themed after the Western gold rushes of the 1800s, Golden Nugget offers the bright lights, gold accents, and flashy decor that people often associate with Vegas. The Golden Nugget has won countless awards over the years for its array of games that cater to every budget. Play big in the poker room, or stretch your coins at their selection of penny slots.

When you book with National Charter Bus, you’ll have a dedicated team of professionals handling your transportation logistics. Although we pride ourselves on planning transportation options for all of our passengers, we still appreciate a little help, especially in crowded cities like Vegas.
When you call to book your lodging, be sure you do a little digging on oversized vehicle policies at your resort and the top locations you want to visit. Establishments like the Golden Nugget only offer garage parking with vehicle size limits. Alternative parking options can be found through your concierge. Relay any parking information to your reservation specialist so they can organize parking for your charter bus and driver.
Groups visiting The Venetian complex can take advantage of free oversized vehicle parking, but be sure to call (702) 414-1000 or (702) 607-7777 to ensure availability before arriving. The Bellagio offers limited parking for oversized vehicles and is first-come, first-served. Contact the concierge at (866) 906-7171 to inquire about charter bus parking before arrival. If oversized parking is full, your driver may be instructed to park at other MGM Resort complexes like ARIA next door.
Most resort complexes on the Strip are all-in-one, meaning you’ll have lodging, dining, nightlife, and gambling in one place. So some of the Strip’s best nightclubs are located in the same complexes as top casinos. If your group is looking to explore clubs beyond what’s in your resort, you may just have to hop over to another resort.
As with casinos, there are an endless number of nightclubs in Vegas. If you’re not sure which places to add to your club-hopping list, consider visiting these popular spots:
Located in The Venetian resort complex, TAO is one of the hottest bistros and nightclubs in Vegas, offering guests sleek, Asian-inspired decor. With more than 12,000 square feet of dance floors and bars, an outdoor terrace, and VIP skyboxes, TAO is the perfect club for dance lovers. Dance to everything from EDM to hip hop. The club is also a great venue for private receptions for up to 800 guests, making it perfect for big social gatherings or annual corporate parties.

This London-based restaurant and club has made an international name for itself as a party powerhouse. Stepping foot in Hakkasan is like walking into a massive high-budget house party, in the best way. The Las Vegas club is located in the MGM Grand casino and attracts big-name DJs like Calvin Harris, Tiesto, and Steve Aoki. If your group is big on EDM and house music, Hakkasan is the place to be.

Las Vegas really knows how to party, any time of day! Get the party started early at a beach club or day club. Yes, they’re usually only open during the day. And no, there isn’t an actual beach, but it can be a welcome breath of fresh air from crowded indoor locations like Hakkasan and TAO.
Drai’s is located in The Cromwell Hotel & Casino and offers groups poolside partying during the day and indoor clubbing in the evening. Have a drink by the pool and enjoy performances by artists like Zeds Dead and Migos. Keep in mind that weather and season determine when most beach clubs and day clubs are open. Be sure to check the club’s website before visiting.

Since most clubs are located in resort complexes that have other patrons lodging in the hotel, gambling in the casinos, dining at restaurants, and shopping in boutiques, parking for nightlife can be exceptionally limited. Finding on-site parking for your minibus may not be feasible, but there is an advantage to having a private driver beyond having a built-in DD: you can be dropped off, with no on-site parking involved. Have your driver leave everyone at your club of choice before returning to your lodging to park your bus until everyone is ready to go.
Reserving a charter bus to clubs will also keep you from splitting your large group into several rideshares, which can easily become a mess. Half of your group may end up in the club while the other half is locked in Las Vegas traffic after a wrong turn. With a minibus, you can keep everyone together throughout every night of your Vegas trip.
We get it: intense poker tables and deafeningly-loud music isn’t everyone's definition of a good night out. Even with such a party-animal reputation, the Strip still has numerous pockets of intimate lounges and bars. While some popular watering holes are located alongside nightclubs in the Strip’s mega-resorts, others are stand-alone establishments where you'll likely find more locals than tourists. A couple of these bars aren’t directly on the Vegas Strip, but they’re very close, and with a private charter bus, getting there will be smooth sailing.
Have you ever wanted to experience what it’s like to drink and dine in a massive chandelier? Probably not. But after seeing The Chandelier in The Cosmopolitan Hotel, you’ll definitely want to step inside the posh lounge. The Chandelier has three levels surrounded by a chandelier-like installation adorned with millions of Swarovski crystals. You can wine and dine at a table underneath, inside of or at the highest level of the structure. Each reserved table at The Chandelier can accommodate up to 14 guests, while groups of 15 or more can inquire about a private lounge. If your group loves architecture and modern decor, along with some serious glitz and glamour, book a table at this luxury lounge.

This local bar is located north of the Strip, just a few blocks over from the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel, and SkyPod. Frankie’s Tiki Room is an amazing option for groups wanting a laid-back drinking atmosphere without straying too far from the hustle and bustle. The bar’s kitschy tiki decor is a far cry from the elegant ambiance of The Chandelier, but sometimes all you need is a strong drink in a tiki mug, a jukebox, and friendly Vegas locals to chat with. Visitors that want to get the party started early (or never have it end) will be happy to know that Frankie’s is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Just past the Golden Nugget and the Fremont Experience sits one of Vegas’ many historic landmarks, Atomic Liquors! Atomic began as a liquor store in 1945, being the first establishment in Vegas to procure a liquor license. In 1952, it also gained the city’s first tavern license, making it one of the state’s oldest freestanding bars. Atomic is now one of Vegas’ top dive bars and still serves up good, affordable drinks, but it also includes a kitchen, an extensive craft beer list, and a patio. Check out Atomic to get a taste of real old-school Vegas, before the era of casino booms and mega-resorts.

Compared to mega-resort nightclubs, visiting a Vegas bar gives easier parking options to groups traveling by charter bus. Freestanding bars like Frankie’s and Atomic have private lots with plentiful parking that can accommodate a minibus. If you’re traveling by full-sized charter bus, you’ll need to secure oversized vehicle parking at a nearby private lot. Alternatively, if you don’t want your driver to hang around while your group explores the Vegas bar scene, you can always be dropped off near the establishment.
No problem! After you’ve built out your nightlife game plan, just let your reservation specialist know. We’ll be able to help you develop the most efficient transportation plan to keep the good times rolling. Your reservation specialist will take each part of your trip into account to develop the most accurate, upfront rental price for your Vegas trip. Call us at 702-780-0497 to get your personalized charter bus quote.
