The Complete Guide
Houston Hospitality, a Los Angeles-based company, founded by Jonnie and Mark Houston, opened their first Las Vegas Nightclub on New Year's Eve 2019. On the Record mimics the look of an old school record store with many modern upgrades and amenities. The venue oozes musical nostalgia from the album covers in the Vinyl Parlor to the upscale furnishings. This lavish "speakeasy" is located at the Park MGM, formerly known as the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino.
While On the Record may be the first Vegas location for the Houston brothers, it's not their first nightlife venue. The twins also own other popular bars, lounges and restaurants, including Break Room, 86, Black Rabbit Rose, La Descarga, No Vacancy, and Good Times at Davey Wayne's.
On the Record is more than just another Las Vegas nightclub. It spans an impressive 11,000 square feet, which includes three different rooms, featuring both indoor and outdoor spaces where guests can wander, relax and socialize. With ample space and innovative concepts, it's like nothing The Strip has seen in quite some time. The theme of the venue reflects the unique vision of the Houston brothers and their memories of past musical eras.
You can find On the Record off the main casino floor across from the Park Theater. Upon entry, you will be amazed at the elegant décor, which should come as no surprise due to the Houston brothers' award-winning interior design skills. The Vinyl Parlor is one of the most exciting new features at On the Record. With a total capacity of only 25 people, the private room is where most guests want to be, but few get to experience. Inside guests will discover record players and Bluetooth headphones that allow them to listen to their music of choice. After selecting a song or album, the top-notch bartenders will prepare unique drinks based on your musical preferences.
The Record has also been praised for its world-class cocktail program. When enjoying drinks at On the Record, you may recognize the mixologists. On the Record has a bartender-in-residency program that brings some of the best bartenders in the world to the Vinyl Parlor. Some of the top cocktail creators you may see include Erick Castro of San Diego's Polite Provisions and Jillian Vose of New York's Dead Rabbit. On The Record provides you the opportunity to experience some of the country's most recognized bartenders while listening to music you enjoy.
For the Record: Our choice of the best club for bachelorette parties
If you go elsewhere in the Club, you will have the chance to listen to music performed by live performers, as well as DJs. The Record also plays ‘60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, and current Top 40 music throughout the venue.
While On the Record is the Houston brother's latest project, it's not the only new venue at Park MGM. Guests can experience NoMad Restaurant, which also has a location in New York City, and a new restaurant run by LA Chef Roy Choi.
If you're looking for a new hangout in the Las Vegas area, you've found it. While On the Record has only been opened a short time, it has seen great success from the start. It's the ultimate place to enjoy dancing, socializing and stylish design, as well as the ambiance of a record store found at the entrance to the Club.
Whether you're celebrating a special event or just having a girls or guys night out, you can get a great table location with a fun and entertaining party.
In my Ultimate VIP Guide to the club's Bottle Service, I provide you with all the details you need to know if you're looking to purchase a table.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Location, Hours of Operation and Specs:
On The Club Nightclub is open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights. The Club is at the Park MGM and the physical address is 3770 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109. Inside it’s near Best Friend Restaurant.
Typically, there is a long line that stretches into the Casino but it would be difficult to miss the bright "On The Record" sign that hangs across the front of the Club.
The hours of operation are from 10:30 p.m. – 4:00 a.m.
They do occasionally have some special events like a fight afterparty since the T-Mobile Arena is across the street, and on rare occasions, they might open up an extra day on a holiday weekend.
They are five rooms: The Main Room, The Living Room, The Patio, The Record Parlour, and the Karaoke Private Rooms.
The Club's decor is retro and original, get the Gram and the Snap stories ready for the Boom Box Wall, the TV Wall, the Cassette Wall, The Rolls DJ booth, and more.
Dress Code & Attire
As with any nightclub in Las Vegas, there is a dress code. Business casual or formal attire is preferred and recommended as you are going out to impress. Shorts, sandals, hats, Timberlands, boots, baggy pants, jean shorts and sweatpants are not allowed. They do not allow Air Jordan sneakers either, but stylish gym shoes should fly. Due to the Hip Hop theme, they tend to be a little more relaxed on the attire. Ladies, anything goes except athletic gear and bare feet. Please keep your shoes on; if you can't handle your heels all night, then consider another pair of shoes. Walking around with no shoes is just asking for an issue. Also, no face masks, face paint and excessive face makeup.
The Cost of Drinks
Drinks vary in price at the bar. On The Record falls slightly below the industry standard of having most mixed drinks range from $12 - $20 per drink, and Beers from $10 - $12 each. Individual bottles start at $575 and up for a 1-Liter. Premium 1L Bottles start at $675 for a 1-Liter bottle of Grey Goose Vodka while other Premium One Liter Bottles, like Hennessy VSOP, are $750, and Patron is $650 each.
Restaurants inside Park MGM
We recommend three great eateries. Bavette's Steak House; Eataly, the largest Italian marketplace in Las Vegas; and Best Friend. We offer some incredible meal deals for Best Friend restaurant and it is conveniently located right next door to On The Record. Click HERE to view the selection. We suggest dinner at 8:30 p.m. and the Club at 10:30 p.m.
The Vibe and Resident Artists
On The Record opened up with a bang, but has since cooled off a bit. They have shifted its brand to becoming more of a Hip-Hop / Open Format club. They play a nice mix of popular music, have some cool dancers, and a performance or two mixed in. The crowd is diverse and the dance floor will be full. It's not super loud, so and you can meet people and still hear them talk.
Most nights, they have a resident DJ performing, and comparatively speaking to the rest of the Nightclubs on The Strip, On The Record is considered a "Deal" club.
Guest ListPut me on the Guestlist for FREE »
The guest list at night lines up to the right if you’re facing the front door. The rules change each night, depending on the artist. A good rule of thumb, arrive before 1:00 a.m. Generally, ladies are free, and guys with an even ratio, are typically free. Since there's no way to tell what it is every weekend, just shoot us a text, and I'll connect you with our good buddy who is the main promotion manager and top promoter.
Ladies, if you have a group six or more pretty ladies, then we might have an opportunity to get you a comp table. A couple of issues with the comp table, you have to be there before a specific time and the table isn't yours for the entire night. So, if you want to table for the entire night, consider paying for bottle service. If we set you up with a comp table, please make sure to tip your server; usually, $100 per bottle is fair.
On The Record only has a few big acts on holiday weekends that would require tickets. If you're coming to town on Memorial Day or Labor Day weekend or a big fight weekend and they have a Big-Name DJ or another significant Hip Hop artist, then you might want to consider tickets to get in quicker. We have such great deals on Bottle Service; we recommend putting your money toward alcohol, instead of a cover charge.
How do I get my guests in if they arrive late?
Usually, this is a pretty straightforward process. Your guest(s) can walk up to the ropes and mention the name the table is under and the table number, and they get right in. Some exceptions could be if the Club is at capacity and they just can't physically allow anyone else in via the Fire Marshal's rules and regulations, or if you are way over your limit on the number of people at your table. If you have some uninvited guests at your table for some reason, the proper way to handle that is get security to have them removed. I strongly suggest that you do not try to remove them yourself as an altercation could occur, and potentially everyone at the table will get kicked out. With over 20 years of experience in this business, please trust us, that is the best way to handle things.What is Bottle Service »

Table Locations and Options
There’s not a bad table in the Nightclub, and one of the best things about the tables – there’s plenty of room to move around them. They're all pretty good for large groups, and all the Main Floor Tables have security at the center and ends of the Club so unwanted guests are not allowed in the table area.
Owner's Table and Dance Floor Tables
Minimum Spend $1500
My favorite tables are the Owner's Table and the other Dance Floor Tables that face the Main Bar in the Main Room. The Center Table is the back of a Vintage Rolls-Royce and is considered the Owner's Table. (Pic Here) It's a small two to three-seater, but it's in the center of the Club and attracts some attention. The other four Dance Floor Tables are elevated and roomy. The Dance Floor Tables on the ends are in the shape of a "U” and they have a lot of space for a large group up to 15 people. The rest of the tables are good for about 8-10 people.
Upper Dance Floor Tables
Minimum Spend $1000
There are a total of 12 Upper Dance Floor tables. When combined, they could be six tables for larger groups. The tables are elevated and offer a beautiful view of the Main Room dance floor. If they divide these tables into smaller sections, they are perfect for six to eight people but if you have a group of 10 to 15, then you might need two of these sections. The center four tables have an open fire pit in the middle. If you'd like to warm up on these Prime tables, just let us know.
Record Parlour Table
Minimum Spend…Ask Us $$$$
They don't always open The Record Parlour, but if they do, there are a total of 4 tables inside. There are 2 "L" booths in the corners, and then a couple two-seaters next to the bar. Ask us if they will have this room open on your weekend.
Living Room Tables
Minimum Spend $500
The Living Room is open on busier nights, and there are a total of eight tables available. The larger "U" booths on the left near the DJ hold 10 to 15 people. The four Island Tables in the middle can accommodate 8-10, and the two L-shaped couches near the fireplace holds approximately 12 people. When that room is open, expect more traffic near the Center Tables and the U-shaped Tables; the two tables by the fireplace will end up having left less traffic.
Minimum Spend $500
The outdoor space for On the Record is called the Patio. There are a total of 7 tables and, of course, the infamous two-story double-decker vintage bus bar. The signature red vehicle makes for an exciting party on the Patio. Space isn't all that big, so when it's busy, all the tables will be in the action. The tables can comfortably fit 8 to 10 people, and they are ideal if you want to have a conversation and not be around loud music.
Minimum Spend…Ask Us $$$$
These are some of the coolest rooms in Las Vegas and you can bring in up to 12 people for a Karaoke party. They only have three of these in the entire Club, so if you want one, they must be booked in advance. These rooms are somewhat separated, so don't expect much traffic to be heading your way, but they are great if you have a group that is looking for a private room. And of course these rooms are complete with a full karaoke setup, video screens etc.Get a Quote Now »

How Do I Calculate My Bill?
$1000 (min) + $83.75 (8.375% City Tax) + $100 (10% Venue Fee) + $200 (20% to the server) = $1383.75.
Total Bill Calculator for On the Record Bottle Service
This does not include any "shake" to the podium for location, express entry, specific table, etc. FYI, a "shake" can also help with a lower minimum spend. When someone refers to the "shake," that means they tip on top of your table minimum and the tip, tax, and venue fee that you will be paying. (The "shake" or “handshake” to the podium goes into the host's tip pool). In many instances, there is an opportunity to get lower-than-posted-pricing with what's called a "handshake" in Las Vegas; basically, it is a gratuity to the podium for a lower minimum and a potential upgraded location. Sometimes a podium tip is required for a particular table or even to get a location on certain nights. There are some higher tiers when special guest artists are in town, or it's a holiday or fight weekend, and there might be some nights where there are even lower tiers than what's listed above.
2020 On The Record Bottle Service Menu
We were able to get our hands on the 2020 On the Record Bottle Menu, and I had my designer add a little flair to it. As you can see, most of the bottles start at $600 and go up from there.
