Do the math: The average clubber could easily spend more than a grand in one night when you factor in cover charges and cocktails or bottle service. Then there’s the time your brother from another mother is in town and wants to play tourist, but you have that job thing to attend to. Perhaps it’s time to take a look at the N9NE Group membership program. It’s not just for honorary keyholders such as Diddy, Kim Kardashian and Snoop—though you’re a star in your own right, aren’t you?
Known for deals like the bounce-around pass to all of the Palms’ nightlife venues and free admission for local ladies every night, the N9NE membership program has recently been revamped to fit a variety of budgets.
“With the economy, people told us they wanted to be members but couldn’t afford it—or only wanted an individual membership,” says Julie Cane, N9NE Group’s corporate director of guest services and media relations. Hey, not everyone has a spare five figures stuffed in the mattress these days.
Even the basic N9NE Group membership package is pretty sweet. For $1,000, the silver level comes complete with handy-dandy membership card offering VIP access to Rain, Moon, Playboy Club, Ghostbar and the Palms Pool & Bungalows for you and three guests. Plus you can get up to four buddies on the complimentary guest list Sundays through Thursdays without you even tagging along.
Perhaps you’re looking for something more. A gold member can drop two grand and receive not only the membership card, but also an engraved Playboy key, priority reservations at N9NE steakhouse and Nove Italiano, VIP valet parking, a personal host to escort your group into venues, bottle service and hotel room discounts, pre-sale ticket offers for concerts at the Pearl and more.
Still don’t feel like a baller? Though they aren’t going to just hand you a stack of cash to shower over the filler crowd (though staff can probably change a hundred, if you ask nicely), platinum memberships, with an annual fee of $3,500, offer even more perks. Then there’s the $10,000 diamond level with the bonus of six personalized membership cards and keys to share among friends, Fantasy Tower suite and restaurant discounts, club entrance for up to 60 people if you dine the same night, complimentary bottle service for VIPs who arrive early and a generally impressive stature at the Palms.
“They get so used to the service here and family treatment that a lot of our members have been with us four or five years,” says Cane. Now the program also helps members with services off property. Cane adds, “It’s the treatment that a high roller gets in a casino without having to gamble.”
So who’s ready to pool some cash together and go platinum?
