Does your bar offer bottle service or just let everyone in with general admission? Are you thinking about what bottle service could mean for your business? When planning for a bachelor party, or getting all the coworkers together to celebrate a big promotion, there’s nothing more exciting than everyone getting together at a popular nightclub for an evening of music, dancing, and booze. With some advance planning, the group could take advantage of VIP bottle service. If you don’t know what bottle service is or all the perks that it entails, let me take you on a tour of the good life and you can weigh the pros and cons yourself.
With general admission, the group will stand outside in a long, snaking line waiting to get in. Hopefully, it’s not pouring down rain or they may leave. With bottle service, they are permitted to enter early at a separate door. Oh, and the group has already paid ahead of time to get in.
Getting A Table
By the time a large group in general admission gets in, there are no tables left… just saying. If they do get one, it will be a tiny one in the corner and there won’t be any chairs left at it. With bottle service, that same group could get a table, with chairs, at a prime location in the nightclub. They will be near the dance floor or the DJ. Everyone also has a place to put their jackets and other belongings so they don’t have to carry it around all night. (Although, they still need to keep an eye on their valuables.)
If the group got in with general admission, they will all now have to wait at the bar and fight for attention to get drinks. Every. Single. Time. They will still be paying the exorbitant amounts for these drinks, by the way. With bottle service you will assign a waitress to that group and she will be the one to pour all the cocktails and shots. At. The. Table. So that perk keeps that swarm of people away from the bar.
Here’s the real scoop on bottle service. The group will prepay for a minimum number of premium bottles of liquor and prime real estate in the best area of the nightclub. They get all the mixers, ice, and supplies they need. The waitress takes away the empty glasses and brings back fresh ones. All the cocktail supplies are out at the table and the group gets to feel like big shots! (Although in most cases the liquors should be secured with bottle locks so only the waitress can pour the drinks. Every group has that one guy that would try to pour super strong drinks and get wasted before everyone else and this eliminates that issue.) Since they’re in a group, they would probably all agree ahead of time to split the cost for bottle service. Honestly, by the time they’ve all paid general admission and spent the money at the bar for those same drinks, they would end up paying about the same amount anyway. When you really compare the two ways to go out and party with a large group, the benefits of bottle service far outweigh taking the chance of getting in with everyone else.
If you want groups to come celebrate at your bar or nightclub, let them do it the VIP way with bottle service and offer them a night to remember. Well, they may not remember all of it, but they’ll remember your club offered them a great time, so they’ll be more likely to come back.
