What’s this? A new fee in Las Vegas??? Yup! Learn all about the Venue Fee, the latest outrageous fee to hit Las Vegas. Las Vegas hotels, bars, and clubs have recently introduced some sneaky new charges on top of hated resort fees and parking fees making your trip to Las Vegas even more expensive. First reported by Vital Vegas, a recent guest at Park MGM questioned why his two drinks at the Mama Rabbit Mezcal and Tequila Bar came with a service charge. The bill – totaling $38.00 – increased to $43.04 after $3.14 sales tax and an ambiguous $1.90 service charge.
Another guest – under the Twitter handle “NotFromConcentrate” – noticed he, too, incurred such random charges at Park MGM. He reached out to MGM Resorts for an explanation.
This charge you’re seeing is a venue fee,” the casino operator explained. “It is not only applied for table service, but for bar service as well, and is being applied to every check in the venue.”
