Located on the roof of the Cromwell Hotel & Casino, 11 stories above the Las Vegas Strip, is Drai’s, one of the hottest Nightclub. This 65,000 sq. ft., multi-level rooftop Nightclub and Beach Club Hybrid venue opened on Memorial Day Weekend in 2014. Since then it has revolutionized the nightlife scene in Sin City. Initially, Drai’s opened as an EDM-style Club, however, over the first few years it struggled to gain traction in a highly competitive market with other Clubs like Hakkasan, XS, and Omnia dominating the high-end DJ bookings and market share. Drai's Nightclub was forced to pivot and find an innovative way to drive its business. Drai's Live was introduced and completely shifted itself to an all Hip-Hop and R&B venue.
Initially starting with artists like J. Cole, Future, and Chris Brown performing, Drai’s combined the Nightclub with full-scale live concert performances. These artists were contracted to perform full sets that sometimes lasted 45 minutes to an hour and a half long. Now Drai’s dominates the Hip-Hop scene and has confidently established itself as the best Hip-Hop Club in the world. Major artists like Migos, T.I, Gucci Mane, Big Sean, Fabolous, 2 Chainz, and Ludacris dominate the Friday and Saturday night performances, while artists like DJ Esco, DJ Pauly D, and DJ Franzen hold down most of the Thursday and Sunday night performances.

The minimum spend agreements or "The Min" is the amount of money you agree to spend to reserve a table or real estate in the Nightclub for a night. The spend amount is a credit to be used on the menu towards Bottles, Red Bulls, or Waters. Standard mixers like Soda, Sprite and Cola Products, Cranberry Juice, Pineapple Juice, and Orange Juice are unlimited and brought to you by the cocktail server throughout the night as you run out. Most Premium 1L Bottles on the menu are $695 each with a few bottles priced at $595 each. So, say you did a $2,500 minimum spend agreement, that would allow you to get at least 3 1L Bottles of Belvedere Vodka for example, with about $400 leftover for Red Bulls or Waters.
Say you do a $2500 minimum spend agreement + $209.38 Taxes (8.375% City Tax) + $143.25 Venue Fees (5.73% Venue Fee) + $500 Tip to the cocktail server (20% Gratuity) = $3352.50.
(This amount does not include any cash handshake to the podium for location, express entry, specific table, etc. Again, a "shake" can also help with a lower min spend for a particular table that you are requesting).

A "shake" is a cash tip that is given to the front door or podium as a "handshake" or favor to typically get better placement or a specific table. This tip is on top of your table minimum and the tip, tax, and venue fee that you will be paying. The shake tip that you give usually goes the podium and into the host's that work at the Club's tip pool. Sometimes the minimum spend that is listed can be lowered, and a cash handshake can be given to the front door, overall, this saves you money on the tab if you are looking to spend a particular amount.
