Question:
Most nightclubs in Las Vegas have a bottle rule that requires a person to buy a bottle of alcohol in order to have a place to sit. The rule is normally one bottle per every four persons seating, bottle prices start at $300 depending on the club, and if you are a party of two, too bad. Granted there are more people than seats in every nightclub in Vegas. What do you think of this rule?
 
Reader Poll Replies:

I think these over priced casinos should at least provide you a place to sit especially when it costs $20 to get in at the door.  Glenn P.  FL.

* Being a female I think it is rude to expect two or four girls to come up with $300 just to have a place to sit.  Linda S.  TX

You know, most of the night clubs that require that guest pay a minimum to go to their club, are always out of business within two years. When will they learn?  John in Cal

* It seems to me that Vegas is leaning more and more toward "playground for the rich and famous" which is fine I suppose. The only reason anything exist these days is to make money and what better clientele to cater to than those with tons of money to blow. The 300.00 bottle rule is only another way to keep the average guys out of the clubs it seems to me and that is also fine. Hopefully Vegas can continue to offer more exclusive spots for the wealthy and still have room for the working class. I like Vegas, but the increasing minimums on the table games, more rule changes on Blackjack to favor the house, constant increases in airfare, rooms, food, cab fares, car rentals, you name it! is making Vegas less and less attractive for me every year. When I hear people talk about the "good old days" in Vegas, I can start to understand what they are thinking. So much for my point of view. Thanks for asking. Sincerely,
Paul

My reaction is I'm glad I don't drink -- look at the money I'm saving.  On the other hand, this requirement discriminates against anyone who doesn't want to pay/drink/or contribute to the profits of the night clubs.  Joanne Kammer

* I rarely sit down when I go clubbing so it doesn't affect me. I'm there to walk the club and dance. IMHO, you not going to meet many perspective women sitting at a table with a bottle of alcohol. Maybe it's me but I think they are trying to keep out the overweight people. ie. slim people can stay on their feet for hours no sweat, but fatties get tired legs real quick. In summary, they could charge 1000 dollars for the bottle and it wouldn't bother me one bit. Party on!   Michael Jenkins Lynchburg, VA

* Face it, Vegas is all about the benjamins! Of course they want to charge $300.00 to sit in a club. That way the seats are automatically reserved for the better off clientele who bring lots of money to spend and it discourages the "just looking to get lucky" crowd from entering the club at all.  Jan H  Tucson, AZ

* Short and sweet greed will get you every time sometimes you have to use
a little common sense and flex your own rules.  McIntosh
