It’s arguably one of the most awe-inspiring water shows in history (except for that one time when Moses parted the Red Sea); and next time you’re in Vegas, you can control it with the touch of a button.
Hyde Nightclub at Bellagio Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip offers a bottle package of biblical proportions. For $250,000, you can start the Fountains of Bellagio on a whim. A Hyde cocktail waitress will present you with a gold-encased button, a menu of available fountain show song selections, and a 30-liter bottle of Ace of Spades bubbly (the equivalent of 40 bottles) to share with your friends.

Upon pressing the red button, the fountain’s 1,000-plus jets will shoot up to 117,000 gallons of water 100 to 500 feet into the air to your chosen song. You’ve likely seen the 8.5-acre lake on television and in the film, but not much compares to watching its carefully choreographed streams of water stylistically soaring, spinning and spraying to music—especially from your VIP table on the terrace at Hyde.
In our minds, obviously, you’re still Number One
In the five years since opening the fountain-side hotspot, only one guest has purchased the $250,000 package. That means you could be the second person in the entire world to command the landmark fountains (assuming nothing has changed).Considering the price, however, “In our minds, of course, you’re still Number One,” assured Hyde General Manager Nolan Lambertsen.
Catering to an elite clientele, Hyde is the first nightlife venture for entrepreneur Sam Nazarian’s hospitality company, SBE. The venue is known for creating unique and exclusive experiences for its guests. On Cinco de Mayo 2017, for instance, Hyde offered The Three Amigos Package, including bottles of Don Julio Blanco, Don Julio Reposado, and Don Julio 1942, plus your personal mariachi band.
When a table ordered the package, the venue went silent to the tunes of the mariachi band.
It’s not just the bottle packages that create Hyde’s exclusive vibe. While typical Vegas nightclubs are large and loud, Hyde—rated among the Top 10 of Nightclub & Bar Magazine’s Top 100 list—is a much more intimate venue with floor-to-ceiling windows, 40 VIP tables, an award-winning mixology program, a menu of gourmet small plates from Lago by Julian Serrano, live performances, and tons of personal interaction.
The summer brings Hyde’s wild day-to-night parties, XIV Vegas Sessions, featuring interactive elements, hundreds of pounds of confetti, free-flowing champagne, and crazy costumes.
“We don’t have the bells and whistles of other nightclubs, in terms of lighting, but the energy in the room is comparable to nobody else,” said Lambertsen.
With bigger nightclubs, you tend to get lost in the crowd. Here, you feel that you’re part of the party.
And then, of course, there’s that truly prime view of the landmark Bellagio fountains.
“When you come in, you walk straight into the venue,” said Lambertsen, adding,
There’s really not a bad seat in the house.
Hyde begins its early-evening experience in the lounge at 5 p.m. The nightclub is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:30 p.m. until the wee hours of the morning.
