This is a pretty cool story about how Vegas day clubs got started back in 2003
Ten thousand dollars means different things to different people, especially in Las Vegas.
For some, it’s a car to take them to work. For others, it’s a shiny piece of jewelry. In some casinos, it’s a pair of chocolate brown $5,000 chips. And in 2003 at the Hard Rock Hotel, it was the total amount of liquor sales at the resort’s sprawling pool complex on an average summer Sunday. Today, at several pools in Las Vegas, $10,000 dollars is the bare minimum a patron should be prepared to spend if he or she wants to be considered a “baller,” the highest level of partyer in the big-money world of Las Vegas dayclubs.
How did we get from those $10,000 Sundays to an industry that generates hundreds of millions of dollars over a 20-week season? It all started in 2004 with Chad Pallas, then the Hard Rock’s executive director of nightlife. “I was going to Lake Mead every weekend because I had bought a pontoon boat,” Pallas recalls. “And I was driving back one weekend thinking I can’t keep doing this.”
Kinda miss that Rehab reality show they did on TruTV.
