What is Bottle Service, how does it work, and how do I pay?

Bottle Service can be confusing and tricky to new customers who have never done it before. Don’t fret – we have you covered.

Bottle service (synonymous with “getting a table”) is essentially a way for you to get your own private section at a nightclub, so you have a place to sit, drink, and have a great time with your friends and others. In order to secure bottle service, you do have to pay significantly more money than you would for just general admission (you are usually shelling out hundreds to thousands of dollars). It’s not for everyone, but we highly recommend doing it at least once in your life. Feel free to read exactly what bottle service comes with here.

Bottle service is a way of having a home base to come back to after exiting the dance floor or bathroom. It’s hard to stand up for 2-3 hours in a nightclub, and having a table is the only way for you to sit down unless you pop a squat on the floor like a buffoon – we don’t recommend that. At the end of the day, people get bottle service for a multitude of reasons – celebrating a birthday/graduation/promotion, status, showing off, comfort, seating ability, keeping their group together, being closer to the DJ, having a home base, etc. Whatever the occasion or reason is, we commend you for experiencing our favorite past time here at Discotech.

If you’ve read about the minimum bottle spend requirement to obtain your table, you may be asking, “Why can the club charge $500 for Grey Goose when I can get it for $30 at the CVS next to my house?” Well, the club is not really selling you the alcohol – they are selling you the real estate of having a spot in their prized venue to entertain yourself and your guests for the evening. Buying bottles is your way of securing the table real estate.

Hopefully now you have a clear understanding of what bottle service is and why it exists. Now we are going to walk you through a typical bottle service experience from start to finish:

Step 1: Submit a bottle service reservation request for your club and event of choice on our Discotech app or website.

Step 2: Wait for a Discotech customer service agent to contact you via SMS, WhatsApp, or email.

Step 3: The Discotech agent will walk you through the steps and inform you when your table booking is confirmed. You will receive a confirmation text and email from us when finalized and all set.

Step 4: Show up to the club with your group by the designated arrival time as instructed. Go to the Tables line and inform them you have a table. You will get wrist-banded and get walked in by your host.

Step 5: Once you get seated, your host will review your minimum spend requirement (how much alcohol you agreed to purchase) and show you the bottle menu for you to peruse and select your poison(s) of choice. You can either choose to order your entire minimum spend all at once, or order bottles one by one until you hit your minimum. There is no right or wrong way to go about this, but do note that if you do not hit your agreed-upon minimum spend, you will still be charged the difference (minimum spend – how much you actually spend). If you are afraid you won’t be able to control your spending after getting severely inebriated, you can ask your server to cap your spend at the minimum, which will prevent you from going over your spend limit and then regretting it the next day, as you lay hungover in bed at 2pm with half a Papa John’s Pizza nestled under your pillow.

Step 6: At the end of the night, or when you choose to leave the club, or after the alcohol is cleared from your table (whichever comes first), your host will show you the final bill which has your subtotal plus the tax and tip on top. You will sign for this and then head home safely with your crew (or with a new friend…or alone….anything can happen at the club).

Party safe but party hard, my friends!
