The Highest Grossing Nightclubs In America – 2014

By on May 19, 2014 in ArticlesEntertainment

I don't know about you, but I have very mixed feelings about the concept of bottle service. On the one hand, holding a bottle in your hand at a private table surrounded by beautiful people certainly feels pretty damn cool. On the other hand, buying bottles is pretty much always an absolutely horrendous way to spend money. A bottle Belvedere at BevMo costs like $30, right? Nightclubs probably pay half that. So why do we line up like idiots every weekend to spend $300 per bottle at a club (with a two bottle minimum)!?!? Then again, who am I to judge? If it makes you feel good, and you have the money… do it up! Bottles and models baby!

Side note: I actually own the domain name BottlesandModels.com. It was one of the very first domain names I ever bought. I own around 200 domain names, 99% of which are not very good. I bought BottlesandModels.com in 2008 off Godaddy for $9. Six months later someone offered me $30,000 for it. There was no website, $30k just for the domain name at a time when my total annual salary was roughly $28k. For some reason I thought it was worth 10X that much, so I turned them down. In retrospect, I probably should have taken the money. Think of how many bottles it would have bought!?!? Anyways, enough reminiscing. Below is a list of the highest grossing nightclubs in America for the last year.
