Bottle Service

Why do people spend money on Bottle Service? Is it worth it?

Why do people spend money on Bottle Service? Is it worth it?

Purchasing a table in a nightclub gives you your own personal piece of real estate. Your table will be your place to sit, drink and party with your guests. Table service comes with security, a waitress, and many, many beverages. Having a table in a Las Vegas nightclub is an amazing experience in comfort and luxury, however, as you might expect, table service is not something that comes for free.

Why on earth are these greedy clubs getting away with charging $500 for this $30 bottle of vodka?? That’s a common question, and the answer is this: they aren’t really selling the vodka. They’re selling an area of the club that tends to be in high demand. The liquor is just a part of it, and most of the time people buying bottles end up with more than they could ever drink.

 

Awesome! Any final tips?

Yes! First of all, always ask which sections are available. The cost of a table will vary depending on where it’s located in the club, and some sections are much more desirable than others. If your table is located in a different room, with different music, when you were expecting something else, it can be a very unfortunate surprise. A great value on a table is getting a good section for a low minimum.

Also, remember we said that the cost of bottles isn’t subject to change? That’s true, and generally only minimums are negotiable. The exception to this is a “get one.” On a weekday, during a slow time of year, or anytime a club needs to drive sales they may be able to offer bottles on a buy-one-get-one, or a buy-two-get-one basis. This isn’t something you should count on, especially on a weekend, but it happens.

Finally, when a nightclub tells you the cost of a table, they generally leave out the cost of tax and gratuity. Most nightclubs will automatically charge you a gratuity of 18-20% for the waitress, and sales tax will be around 8%. That adds up to almost an additional $150 per bottle, and understandably catches some people by surprise, so make sure you ask about it!
