No, it all depends on the club and how busy they expect to be. I have seen table service for as little as $400.

Generally speaking bottle service at clubs is IMO ridiculously expensive. In Vegas expect it to be about $500 for a premium bottle of Vodka like Grey Goose or Ketel One. The bottle service reserves your table for the duration of your stay. You can also choose to not get bottle service and order drink by drink at the bar but you will have to probably wait in line 20-25 minutes to get a drink or pay a premium and have the bottle right at your table and screw the waiting. That said, the drink price while waiting 20-25 minutes will still be ridiculous probably between $15-20

Drinks are super expensive. 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 got a redbull /w Jager [jager bomb] at the beginning of the night for like $23, then later on in the night for like $27. I got some other drink early in the night for like $25, then my friend got the same drink later on for like $22. I honestly think the bartenders would just make up random prices.

Isn't publicly setting fire to money pretty much the idea? "I throw away sacks of (my daddy's) cash, therefore those cupcakes posing over there should want to lose their undies for me." So wouldn't sensibly priced bottle service defeat the purpose, or do I misunderstand? I admit I'm not really up to date on these things. Is it not about a display of financial plumage, and therefore status to get laid? It was a little different when I was in the cupcake nailing arena. We had to pretend to be spiritually profound & socially deep to get the undies off, rather than using mum & dad's American Express card to pretend to have deep pockets. On balance, I think faking those 'profoundly deep' poses were more costly in their way than running up a mere five figure balance on an AMEX.

In some countries tips are taxed. Did you know that?
Talking about table service and tips, I love Chine . in Chine it is considered to be rude and impolite to give tips.

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.

I have really never liked big dance clubs that's probably because I'm not into dancing.

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.

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.

Bottle service and super expensive drinks are for the shallow who like to impress people by wasting money. Clubs filled with young faces unclouded with thought. Oh but wait, Paris is going to show up!
