Is it gender inequality to charge women lower cover charges than men at clubs?
In Las Vegas I went to several clubs where cover charge for men were like $60 and women were $20-30 or sometime free. True story

Yes, it's sexist and discriminatory against men.
When it comes to discrimination in accommodation, the Civil Rights Act makes it illegal to discriminate on the basis of "race, color, religion, or national origin". You will notice that when it comes to accommodation, the Civll Rights Act does not prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex. Therefore, charging males more or prohibiting males is not illegal under the Civil Rights Act. It's the same reason a bar can let women drink for free but not men.

Supply and demand. If you go to clubs wanting to meet women you should be grateful for anything that convinces more of them to want to show up.

And the only way to fight it is for men to not go to such clubs. The concept that the women will attract the men DIES if the policy keeps them away.
Thing is, most men are more interested in women than the fairness of the policy.

That’s why we need feminism. So they can help equalize the pay

Yes, it is sexism and gender discrimination.
In some jurisdictions, it is illegal as well.
If it is illegal in Las Vegas, you should report that club directly to the local Mafia Boss, and he will, eh, "take care of it".

You pay $60. to get into a club? Wow! I would not do that, but I guess we all decide how we spend our money.

It is neither gender inequality nor female privilege. It's a legal business practice designed to raise profits. If men know there will be more women at a club, then more men are likely to go there as well. That's what they're out there looking for. Most men are not there for the music or the booze. It's the broads!

No. This is a perfect example of female privilege. When women whine about inequality they conveniently leave out/ignore examples just like you mentioned.
That being said, there is a reason (from a business perspective) why women have lower or free cover charges and men are the ones left to pay. The reason is that men are motivated by sex with women. Therefore, any business owner knows that where the women go - the men will go. So if you provide incentives for women to show up at your business, you can guarantee that you will be profitable even if you charge the women nothing. Men are chumps. They will pay whatever it costs to get in if women are there and they will spend the night buying women drinks in the hopes that these women will sleep with them (which they won't in most cases).

"Is it gender inequality to charge women lower cover charges than men at clubs?"
It is charging men more just because they are men. That is a clear-cut definition of sexual discrimination. Of course, the laws against this when it happens to men vary all over the place. Mostly ... there are no laws against this, and this exact form of gender inequality is rampant.
Contrast that to females who have the privilege of specific legislation at the federal level, guaranteeing them that they won't be discriminated in this exact same way.
