If you love going to clubs, but hating waiting outside of them, VelvetRope is the app for you. As an app, Velvet Rope allows quick access to some of the hottest venues and events in Las Vegas, all at the tip of your finger tips.
VelvetRope first asks you for your name, e-mail, and phone number. This information is used to make bottle-service reservations or to put your name on the guest list, well ahead of when you actually arrive at the nightclub or event. After entering this information, the app explains that Guestlist Requests give you access to a shorter line and shorter wait time, and that clubs will prefer your request to involve both women and men. “Venues prefer even parties,” the app states. Of course, even though you might have the VelvetRope app, some general rules still apply.
After entering your information, you can check out lists of both venues and events. These lists have lots of information on the clubs and events, but remember, VelvetRope currently only has listings from clubs in the Las Vegas area. Hopefully the developers will soon add support for clubs and events all across the country.
Looking at the venue list, you can see the addresses, phone numbers, and general information of each club. You can check out the events specific to any venue and there are also buttons for adding yourself to the relevant guestlist and for reserving tables for your party.
The events menu button provides a list of all events currently scheduled for the next week and a half. Selecting any one event will give you all the information you need in choosing where you going to go this weekend.
VelvetRope does a good job of what it has covered already, which is currently only the Las Vegas area. As such, it might only do an iPhone user any good if they’re currently visiting the city and need help figuring out what they want to do and where they want to go when it comes to the night life.
At just $.99, and with other cities planned for future updates, VelvetRope is the perfect companion for a big weekend in the City of Sin.
Velvet Rope is available for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It requires the iPhone OS 3.2.1 or later.
