It doesn't matter if you start your vacation out at Fat Tuesday's with a giant frozen cocktail, if you're doing some window shopping in The Forum Shops, laying by the pool or just strolling the sidewalk of The Strip, if you're a female, Vegas nightclub promoters will find you and talk to you without hesitation during your trip to Sin City.
I'm one of those guys. I don't care if you're clearly trying to dodge me or if you think you're so hot that it intimidates me, I'm going to talk to you. I'll keep talking to you if you ignore me and act like you didn't hear me at first. I'll literally run across Las Vegas Boulevard to catch up to a group of girls I see in the distance. You can be drunk and rude or pleasant, it doesn't matter to me.
It's my job to convince you to come to the club where I work, and by putting you on my guest list, it's free. It's not my job to bother you, waste your time or rip you off in any way. I'm a good guy, I swear.
Adding someone to my guest list on my phone takes ten seconds. At first, most of my time is spent having a conversation with you--getting to know you a little bit, where you want to go, who you need to be connected to, and telling you what I can offer different from any other guy you've talked to.
Need a recommendation for a great restaurant, help finding your favorite store in the mall or wondering if you should tip someone $10 to put you on their "free" guest list (NEVER!)? I have all the answers to those questions and more. I live here and walk the casinos and malls everyday looking for and helping groups of girls just like you. I know this town pretty well.
I want to help make sure that you have a great time in Vegas. I'll be the nicest stranger you'll ever meet. I want you to have so much fun that you pass my number along to all your friends who come to visit in the future. I'm your "guy in Vegas".
I'm not a promoter who just puts you on his list and forgets about you. Instead, you'll tell all your friends about how I was the promoter who made sure you were treated like a celebrity at Surrender, how I charged your phone in my car after it died at 3 a.m. when you couldn't find your friends, and how I got you into Drai's for the after party where you partied with the Manufactured Superstars until the sun came up.
As a nightclub promoter I'm employed by a nightclub, but here's a secret: I actually work for you. Any great nightclub promoter does. Think of me as your personal, all-in-one guide to everything fun in Las Vegas. I work solely on commission and only get paid if you come to the club I work for, but you won't do that if I'm not the nicest, most helpful promoter you've ever met. So, I'd like to introduce myself:
Hi, I'm Matthew Lounds.
