Are Table Services that expensive at all night clubs? from $2500 dlls????
No, it all depends on the club and how busy they expect to be. I have seen table service for as little as $400.
Talking about table service and tips, I love Chine . in Chine it is considered to be rude and impolite to give tips.
When I was at Hakkassan about a year ago, drinks were $20-30/each. Oddly enough, the drink prices somehow were changing through out the night. ... I honestly think the bartenders would just make up random prices.
I was at a poker table at MGM last month and a guy claimed a foreign lady he knows paid $50 for a rum and Coke at Hakkassan because she didn't know the conversion rate.
However, I have gone countless times, either with a date or friends, but only because they wanted me to go. I started going to the Palladium then Sharks quite a bit in the 90's. Eventually they opened up some local clubs like Pinkies(near the Rio) the Beach (near the convention center on Paradise) Jose Hogs (on Sahara near Valley View). I did like going to the locals clubs because they offered things other than dancing. Also no cover, free drinks if you gambled.
Jose Hogs had a play worth about $25 an hour playing Nickle VP that lasted about 4 months. I bankrolled a friend and split the profits.
IMO Pinkies was the best locals club in Vegas. They oftentimes had live discarded 80's rock bands like Rat, Quiet Riot, Skid Row etc. if not, they had fairly good cover bands. They would get extremely packed at times. The band members would oftentimes stay and party after the show. One of my ex flings who was more of a friend at the time hooked up with one of the band members.
Pinkies had a bunch of pool tables, video games, fuse ball, air hockey, darts, ping pong. From like 5pm to 8pm games were free.
The bar was fairly big with VP & slots.
They had a coupon book with various discounts on food and drinks. you could buy the fun book for $5 to $10, or it came with the $10 cover charge after 8 pm whenever a band was playing.
One of the coupons was a four of a kind bonus with a $190 value on low denominations. I'm certain me and my GF killed it.
One by one all the clubs I liked shut down.
Bottle service is such a scam.
I have reluctantly been comped bottle service whenever friends were in town.
It's a complete wast of comps.
Thousands in comps down the tube, all for what...a table and a bottle of stupid Vodka? The only thing remotely good about it is that the host usually walks you in.
Of course then your friends just want to leave and check out a different club.
I absolutely regret using comps on bottle service. I lost my good status at the Wynn using bottle service a few times among other places.
The bottle service reserves your table for the duration of your stay.
From what I've been told, this isn't totally true. They will sometimes ask for more money and boot you from your table if you don't pay, if they have more suckers than tables.
