If you’ve been playing GTA Online for a long time, chances are you’ve either bought or are planning to buy a nightclub. These are late-game businesses that allow players to make money off of most of their existing properties. Not only that, but they make excellent places to hang out with your friends!
But with ten different locations in Los Santos, which one should you choose? Which one is the least expensive? What ones are closest to sell locations? What about popularity missions? We’ll be covering all of that and then some in this ranking of every nightclub in GTA Online. We’ll cover the best nightclubs in GTA Online and discuss why each one deserves its rank.

Kicking off our worst to best ranking, we have what is probably the most pathetic nightclub in the entire game. The Elysian Island Nightclub is located very far to the south of Los Santos and is difficult to access from the main parts of the city. This isn’t the only reason why it’s the cheapest nightclub in the game, however.
Most of the popularity missions and the sell missions take you far north from this location. Unless you enjoy driving a slow-moving delivery vehicle all the way to the Alamo Sea or Paleto Bay, I’d recommend you save your cash and buy one of the other properties on this list.
Next up, we have the LSIA nightclub. While not as terrible as the previously mentioned one, it still has plenty of notable drawbacks. It’s located next to the airport, which can be found on the very southeastern side of Los Santos. As we said about the last nightclub, south = bad for delivery sell missions and popularity missions.
On the bright side, getting to this location is easier than Elysian Island. And given its cheap price, it might be worth buying and trading in for later if you want to start making money with nightclubs right away. Still, I feel like it’s better that you wait until you can afford some of the better locations on this list.
Next, let’s take a look at the location in Cypress Flats. While it’s somewhat more northward than the previous two picks, it is still fairly down south in Los Santos. Most of the popularity missions can be found evenly spread throughout the city, so this makes a decent location if that’s how you intend to make money.
It’s about $200,000 more expensive than the locations in LSIA and Elysian Island. If you’re on a budget and really want to invest in a nightclub, get this one. Unlike the Elysian Island location, this one doesn’t require you to travel over a bridge, making deliveries less of a hassle.
Our next pick is the location in La Mesa. I’m very on the fence about this one. On one hand, it isn’t really in the south Los Santos, but isn’t in the north either. It’s in an awkward spot that makes it hard to justify either buying or tossing aside. Then again, there is the price.
This one is $1,500,000, which isn’t the most expensive (but also isn’t cheap). Honestly, I’d recommend you just ignore this one and save up for one in a slightly better location. The next one on our list is only $25,000 more and is in a much better spot….
Vespucci Canals is a decent location given its low price of only $1,320,000. Like the previous options, it isn’t the best for doing delivery missions, but popularity missions are okay due to its location in Los Santos.
This is a fairly popular area to hang out in, however, and you may find yourself in a tough spot with griefers running about. Just something for you to keep in mind if you intend on doing those delivery sell missions I mentioned earlier. The GTA Online community isn’t always friendly.
The halfway point on our list of every nightclub ranked in GTA Online goes to the Mission Row nightclub. Remember how the La Mesa location cost $1,500,000? Well, this one is located slightly to the north and is actually cheaper!
The garage entrance for this one is good, and it’s fairly close to the highway. This makes it good for doing popularity missions that take you far up north on the map. And with good highway access, it still makes a viable location for doing delivery missions.
Coming in at spot four, we have the Strawberry Nightclub! This is probably the best location for doing popularity missions. Most of these missions can be found evenly spread throughout the city, and since Strawberry is so close to downtown, this location makes perfect sense. This one also allows you to have easy access to the nearby highway.
This is also a great location if you happen to own the Maze Bank Office space in Pillbox Hill, as the two are fairly close to one another. You can do some popularity missions from here, then go grind Import/Export or CEO creates from your office while you wait for your nightclub safe to fill up! It’s a grinder’s paradise!
Coming around to our top three, we have the Del Perro Nightclub! This is a very popular location for GTA Online players and many would argue its GTA Online’s best nightclub location. It’s easy to see why. Not only does its exterior look incredible, but it’s located fairly close to the pier. This can also be a detriment, however, as there may be many griefers in the area lurking about.
If you intend on doing lots of popularity missions, this one has my recommendation. While many of these missions can take you all over the city, there are some that are specifically located in this general area, as well as the nearby city center. The highway can be found nearby, making it great for sale missions that take you to Paleto Bay.
Next on our list for every nightclub ranked in GTA Online, we have West Vinewood! What have we learned so far? That the more north a nightclub is, the better for sale missions. This one is found in Vinewood, which is in the very north of the city.
Additionally, it’s also slightly closer to the Eclipse Penthouse, a nearby arcade, and several other properties a veteran player most likely owns. This makes your commute from property to property easier. If you spend a lot of time grinding in this game, picking this one is a no-brainer.
This location also looks much better in my opinion, sporting some snazzy modern art just above the entrance. The garage can be found very close to the street, and it’s very easy to get in and out with all of your vehicles. The only downside is that your vehicle will sometimes spawn in a nearby parking lot, forcing you to take a short walk.
The very best nightclub in GTA Online is the location in Downtown Vinewood. This one is still pricey, but it’s not as expensive as the nearby one in West Vinewood. This makes a good choice if you happen to own the Master Penthouse at the Casino, as the two are very close to one another.
Speaking of location, this one is smack-dab in the middle of all the possible selling locations, making it a very good choice if you intend to use this business for making good money fast. The garage entrance is located right next to the street, making it great for getting in and out of.
This one is also $30,000 cheaper than its sister location in West Vinewood. $30,000 may not sound like a lot, but that’s an extra $30,000 that can be geared towards getting business upgrades earlier, which will make you more money faster!
