The VIP Nightclub Experience

Top reasons to do bottle service: no line, no waiting for your drink, nice booze (champagne!), confetti, lights and the spectacle of beautiful, scantily clad ladies bringing out the bottle. It’s also a fun way to ensure that you will make new friends. And drumroll . . . the biggest reasons of them all is downtown Scottsdale nightclubs know how to do VIP service and everyone loves to pop bottles!

Here are some of my favorite places to splurge on champagne bottle service:

W Scottsdale

I love bottle service at the W because it’s one of the sexiest spots to be seen and there are two types of bottle service experiences to choose from. If you’re feeling like a more relaxed, live music vibe, the downstairs Living Room is the perfect place to grab a few couches and truly be in the center of it all as you sip your champagne. If you’re in the mood for a more elegant version of the nightclub style of bottle service, walk up the beautifully lit stairs to Shade Lounge. Catch the eyes of everyone as they walk in by sitting close to the bar, or get cozy on the white couches facing the rooftop pool. As one of the most elite hotels in Scottsdale, the W is simply amazing at providing VIP service and creating guest experiences that will leave you feeling like the Queen (or King) you are.

The Mint Ultra Lounge

The Mint is a classic Scottsdale spot to do bottle service and truly transitions into a nightclub vibe later in the evening. The 7,000-square-foot space is luxuriously designed with the elite in mind: a large patio space is filled with resort-style cabanas, there’s a private dining/wine room if you want to be fully secluded, and there’s even a champagne bar in the middle of the co-ed restroom. If this is the place where you choose to do bottle service, champagne just feels right.

El Hefe

El Hefe is the perfect place to be when you’re craving that wild night out because it is labeled by many as the “craziest bar in Scottsdale.” This bar features all of the bottle service bells and whistles with the babe spectacle, confetti, smoke and lights. Plan to sit close to the DJ to experience an eclectic mix of high energy music that will keep you dancing into the night with new friends.

Bottled Blonde

Bottled Blonde is a little more casual way (dress code still enforced) to do bottle service while still getting the ultimate Scottsdale fist-pumping experience. It’s always both crazy busy and fun. With people jammed in shoulder to shoulder, bottle service offers the best experience. As with all nightclub bottle service, the babes bringing out the bottle will surely let everyone know that you’re a VIP and you can further solidify this by dancing on the table. Whether you’re sitting, standing or dancing, you will always have a view looking out into a sea of people dancing while you listen to a DJ spinning everything from Billboard top hits to EDM.

CAKE Nightclub

Let them eat cake! Just like actual cake, CAKE makes you want to be extremely indulgent. As you are escorted through the packed crowd of sexy people dancing, the manager is usually shaking hands and kissing cheeks on the way. It’s definitely got a different kind of nightclub vibe, almost like something out of an 80s movie. The Cake Dolls are absolutely stunning, and so is the view from your VIP booth. With a clear view of the DJ and a nice pole for anyone who feels so inclined, it’s a fun place let loose.

So basically everything about bottle service is elaborate from start to finish. For the “clubbier” places, think a modernized and classier version of “A Night at the Roxbury” or a rap music video. I’ll leave you with a real-life quote from a friend after a recent night out, “Going to the clubs in Scottsdale is like going to the circus with really nice booze . . . talk about production and entertainment.”
