    London clubs

    For some odd reason, i stumbled onto a site that facilitates *VIP* access to clubs in that London. Have a pootle through this if you have never been to any of these places before

    £1000 min spend for most gaffs on the list

    Here is the price list for Chinawhite/Libertines champers

    What happens if the person serving drops the bottle?

    Designed for friendless, gormless and gullible rich people to be relieved of their cash while they can bask in the hollow glory of their VIP exclusiveness.

    Much further down the scale, the 'VIP guestlist' or "VIP quick access" bullshit has proved a neat way for clubs to extract a bit more cash from people desperate to feel a bit more special than anyone else. The most tragic are the pathetic little roped off areas that people pay extra to sit in.

    I love how the magnums (150c) are massively overpriced in comparison to the already massively overpriced regular bottles (75c) :cool:

    You would think that, at £11500 a big bottle, they could spell Dom Perignon correctly...

    What year is the Dom Perignon? The 1978 was excellent but I doubt there's any left

    I've always wondered why large champers bottles have the names of jewish kings so I asked google:
    thats a bit vague but more than I knew already so there you go.

    The club prices is half the point isn't it, making it rain like the big man with your 3k bottle of dom.

    um, whatever floats your boat I guess. Punter psychology is certainly a little strange. I can confirm though, there's few things like hustling someone through security ahead of a queue to make people feel special. If there is someone who is indifferent to that, well I haven't met them.

    Its not as bad as it seems.

    You can have ten people for the £1000 minimum spend.
    And a bottle of spirits is £290. Which works out at £3.50 a shot

    £100 per person for a long night in a fancy club like that isn't awful.

    Is it? There's 30 25ml measures in a bottle of spirit, so, at almost £300 a bottle, it's about £20 for a double, without the cost of a mixer!

    For their £100, each person would get four drinks over the long night in this fancy club! Sounds awful to me.

    There's 35 drinks. Not 30.
    These places usually include mixers.
    I did the maths wrong. It's just over ten drinks for your £100.



    For £100 each they are getting more than one bottle in the table.

    It'd be bloody hilarious if they were actually serving knock off champers - giant fancy looking bottles of babycham/perry type stuff :D

    Honestly, why does anyone bother with clubs (posh or not) these days? They always end up being shit and a waste of money. When I was younger I thought they were great and spent most weekend at them but looking back I wish I did other stuff instead, like travelling.

    I successfully combined the two - resulting in 9 months squatting in a deserted hotel complex (these days an Aldi) whilst working as an Ibizan drag queen. Thumbs.

    I wish I'd spent more time getting wankered in clubs tbh. Although in hindsight I'd have stuck to my guns whenever someone tried to push me into going to some shitty chart dance club.
