Las Vegas Gaming & Clubs with a US passport?

Jump to last reply

I am most likely going to Las Vegas in about 3 weeks. I don't currently have a drivers license and to get an ID card will take 2-3 weeks. I have been using my passport around town as an ID and have not had any problems with it, but I know that certain nightclubs, bars, etc. can be very picky about the types of ID that they accept and I don't want to take any chances.

I'm not a drinker, so I'm not interested in being able to buy liquor at stores or in the bars, but I do know that you need to be 21+ to be in casinos, nightclubs, etc. Specifically, my husband & I are planning to go to a nightclub to see a rock band and while I've tried to contact them to see if using a US passport for age verification would be a problem, I've yet to get a response. I actually contacted the Las Vegas Tourism and Visitors Bureau, and while the representative was very helpful, the best they could do was say that "to the best of their knowledge" that US passports would be accepted for gaming purposes and liquor purchases.

Has anyone run into trouble doing this in Las Vegas? I know that they are probably used to getting foreign passports, but will they question why I don't have another ID card/drivers license? I noticed you can use a US passport to get a marriage license in Las Vegas, but I'm not fooling myself that every club has the same criteria as the city government.
