It all comes back to the lady in the bathtub.
No, don't worry, this isn't that horrific scene from "The Shining," which gave the world nightmares?-?this is pretty much the exact opposite. This is a sexy, vibrant woman lounging in a bath of rose petals and it's one of the first sights that greet you upon entering Tao Nightclub. And while it's just as likely you'll find this bathing woman on your mind when your head hits the pillow, something tells us, with her, you won't mind one bit.
Tao Nightclub (which serves as an Asian Bistro during the day) kicked things off in September 2005 and they haven't stopped with the celebrations since.
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, that bathing woman (and sometimes women, as in, plural) takes up her tub and heralds to everyone their success in getting into one of the hottest clubs in Vegas. See, if you read a little into it, that bathing woman is pretty much the key to the whole Tao experience. Once you see her, it means your path is set?-?odds are you're going to have a pretty interesting (not to mention sexy) night.
If you rewind past her a little bit, another one of Tao's, um, amenities becomes clear?-?the line. Now, it's not very often that a club's line is considered a good thing (beyond the fact that it's clearly a popular club, that is). With Tao, though, the line is representative of the whole club. It's one of the most jam-packed doors in all of Sin City, but the staffers over at Tao don't let on to the chaos for a second. The line is efficient and they keep it spread out enough from the door that it doesn't feel as much like a cattle call as you might expect (or experience elsewhere?-?not that we're naming names).
Once you're in, make sure you're stamped because to get up to the second floor where most of the action is, they'll be checking for it. After that oh-so-familiar dance of turning your right wrist over for the doorman, Tao really unfolds before you. Yes, yes, there's the rose-petal tub girls, but there's also an immediate step in the right direction for your night, which is just what Tao's organizers hope for.
"The overall goal [of Tao] is to provide top-notch customer service to guests from the moment they enter," said Kara Lewis, director of marketing for Tao Bistro, Nightclub and Beach (yes, there's a beach, we'll come back to that). "
