Owned partly by Celine Dion, Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf and Shaquille O'Neal, this bar and lounge redefines nightlife and partying in Las Vegas. Located at the world famous Caesars Palace Hotel Casino , this 3600 square foot fun paradise has three venues under one roof. Enter the exclusive VIP lounge known as the Red Room and get your own space, the way you want it. Or, take the glass elevator to the terrace and party under the stars. Groove to the hottest tracks and raise a toast to the ever soaring spirit of this city at Pure. This is one place where excitement is the catalyst of life.
A friend and I decided to go to Pure for NYE based on a friends suggestion. We paid $200 each for tickets and assumed getting in wouldnt be an issue. Not the case. The entrance and multiple lines were completely disorganized. There were about ten idiot bouncers standing around each with a different guest list. It was complete chaos and we probably woudnt have gotten in until after midnight if I hadnt asked how I could get my money back. Once inside the scene was highly disappointing. A weird crowd of Forever 21 and H&M clad nerdy types. I would never ever go to Pure again, New Years or otherwise. The experience was so horrible I may never go to Vegas again.
We went to vegas to celebrate our friends 21st. We all heard PURE was a really awesome club so everyone was excited to go. We were on the list, but had 3 girls and 6 guys so it was a little difficult to get in. The "VIP" line is actually a mob of people pushing and shoving their way to the front. Thankfully we only waited about 20-25 minutes, but even though the guys had "Free" VIP passes to get in, they had to pay full price. Inside the club was WAY TOO over crowded and way smaller than I expected. It has 4 pretty small rooms, but the majority of each room is blocked off VIP sections. The music was awful and completely predicatable. We're from San Diego and the clubs in downtown SD are MUCH bigger and have better decor and music. The drinks were what I expected, I had Vodka Tonic all night and it was $10 a drink, but I didn't even feel tipsy after two. The only good part about this club is the view from the upstairs outside terrace, which is beautiful. I was not impressed at all, like I said, San Diego clubs are much better, and I expected a lot more considering we were in VEGAS!
so i received a "VIP card" for PURE while on the Las Vegas strip. The VIP card stated "free admission unless special event." Thinking that I would need no cover, I stood in line for over 2 hours with other gullible guys who also had "VIP passes." When it was time to enter(it was about 3am), the bouncer rudely demanded $30 cover despite the fact that there was no special event.
I have no problem with so-called upscale clubs overcharging for drinks and making people wait in line for hours. But when they resort to all out lies as is the case here(ie: "get in free" and then lie and charge cover), well that's the type of pure dishonesty that most Americans just don't accept whether it be in our politicians, fellow colleagues, or--as in this case--a nightclub.
A group of like 8 of us went to pure in
August 2007 for my best friends birthday. We went to PURE because we heard it was the place to be. We called like 3 weeks in advance to reserve 2 tables. We got confirmation that we were in. We were told to be there at 9:45. When we showed up, there was a nice orderly line for the people on the "list" but for the people that were about to drop at least $1000, there was just a mob of people pushing & shoving attempting to gut to the front. It took us like an hour to get to the front and that was pushing & shoving. Now i'm from Miami & this is not the way it works. In Miami if u reserved a table the maximum time u wait is maybe 10 minutes tops. On top of that the bouncers were super rude. And when we finally made it past the infamous velvet rope, they didn't let in one of our friends because he didn't have on the "right" shoes. Which was absolutely not true. Then they suggested he go to forum shops and buy a pair of shoes. Needless to say, after that we left. I'm from Miami, i don't need to put up with things like that to get into a hot club. It was absolutely the most ridiculous scene i have ever seen. I will NEVER go there again!!!!
Had a blast at PURE last year when we were in Vegas. There is no cover for women but it is hard for guys to get in if you don't have any girls in your group. We didn't wait in line at all...we walked up directly to the front and were let in. It helps if you dress to impress. Once we were inside, we had a great time dancing. The DJ played great music. I'm sure the drinks are outgragous but it is Vegas---everything is expensive so that shouldn't be shocking. You can't expect to go to the hottest club in Vegas and get $5 drinks. Planning on going back in May!
-Had free passes to get in. They got rejected because of a "special event." However, when I asked the bouncer what the event is, he couldn't answer me.
-WOULD NOT give free water. Had to pay 8 dollars to get a overpriced bottle of water for a dehydrated girlfriend. REDICULOUS.
-Got there at 9:20, club opens at 10:00...didn't get in until 10:30.
-Can't sit down anywhere. Scenery is very unimpressive.
-VIP area takes up more space that the regular area.
I had high expectations for Pure and was not impressed. The decor and layout were uninspiring, the music was too loud most of the time, and the drinks were expensive even by Vegas standards. Access to and from the dance floor is blocked by columns and tall tables, making it difficult to get on and off the floor. The rooftop bar offers fresh air and some nice views but overall the experience was nothing special.
My wife and I went to Pure with another couple in August 2006 and I can honestly say it was the worst club experience we ever had. I didn't mind the cost too much ($20 for women-$30 for men) this is Vegas after all, but the almost 3 hour wait was too much. Even people with free "VIP" passes were herded into a large roped off area outside and only let into the club sporadically. No organization at all. Pure was too crowded to dance, and there is no seating for the general public. All tables and chairs must be reserved months in advance for $300 and up. Velvet ropes create a narrow walkway, and it's so crowded you must walk sideways to get through. You are not allowed to stop, stand, lean on the wall or the bar or security will shine a light in your face and tell you to keep moving. You can't even enjoy the view on the terrace because VIP tables and velvet ropes line both sides. After 45 minutes of shoulder to shoulder crab-walking we left. Pure is a club that is definitely feeling it's own hype, but it's not worth it.
We had heard from some friends that this was THE place to go in Vegas-Pure inside Ceasar's Palace. Me, my sisters and some friends decided to try it for a bachelorette party, plus my sister had been there a few times already. There is no cover for women, but there is a $20 charge for guys I believe. The dress code was not really fancy since its summer-alot of girls in nice shorts, short skirts and jeans. I think the dress code applies to guys mainly. First, there is no "list". We were in Caesar's Palace earlier that day and some gentleman with a clipboard put our names on the "list"-he really tried to get us to go to Tangerine and said he'd hook us up there, but that didnt interest us. When we arrived about 9:45, there was already a good size line and there really was no list. Women can wait in a seperate line, and there is no cover for us either. Our line went quicker than the other one. Just drink in line and get a good buzz going since drinks are really expensive once youre inside the bar. We waited for about 30-40 minutes and once we got inside, the hardest part was over. The ambience of this place is really cool, it's huge, about 3 different sections and dance floors. And there is an outdoor area that gives you an awesome view of the strip. And there are lounges and couches throughout the club. Vodka Redbulls were $15, while water was $10. Be prepared to spend some money here. The restrooms were big but usually crowded. The Pussycat Dolls Lounge is also inside and they supposedly perform in increments but I didnt see them. Overall, this place is awesome, but as far as "value" is concerned, like most A-list bars in Vegas, it's way overpriced. But if you have a good time it's worth it.
Best things about the club...it was packed with good looking people, and you never really felt confined or claustrophobic (like Tangerine at the TI...avoid it!) the music was a mix of Hip-hop/R&B inside, and mostly house on the open-air patio that has a ridiculous view of the strip! Drinks are priced pretty much the same as other Vegas clubs (which is to say EXPENSIVE) but were full of alcohol, so were worth it.
Worst thigns about the club...the line-up. The actual line stretches through a lot of the casino and is to say the least, brutal. The VIP section is a huge mass of people trying to scam their way in...But the wait is worth it.
