Sure, you could assume that District seems on the surface to be your average getaway for the GTL (gym, tan, laundry) styled Jersey Shorecrowd––and you’d probably be correct. Yet, at the same time, District succeeds almost because of its cliche as a place where VIP status can be attained for the night. Bottle service and private parties are the name of the game here, where top 40 hits get the dance floor bangin’ and the bubbly flowin’ in true, extravagant style. You’ll be too busy living the good life here to notice anything other than the great, loud music, strong drinks and dance party atmosphere.

Intended for the artsy crowd who still wants to feel privileged and special when out on the town, Oberon’s VIP/bottle service package usually includes private seating areas and tables from which to watch any of the club’s music and art shows. The TraniWreck extravaganza is particularly popular amongst patrons; a unique cabaret show which features music, dancing and fabulous costumes. Oberon also offers plenty of other live events, all conducted within the club’s expansive dance hall where such varied events as disco dance parties and performances of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” all add up to a VIP experience unlike any other in Boston.

Guilt is a Seaver Place area club which hires out its own private bottle service girls for their VIP clientele who are seeking a bit of eye candy with their liquor purchases. Speaking of eye candy, Guilt also adds their own go-go dancers to the mix, who groove to the dance-fiend pulse of the club’s bumpin’ sound system, while waitress sell day-glow drinks. If all this sound like every man’s dream club, that’s because it probably is––at least for the single high roller gents who want to feel like reality TV stars, if only for a night.
90 Exeter St.
Boston, MA 02116
Formerly known as Saint, this Back Bay area club holds a practice of reserving many of its tables in advance for VIP and bottle service patrons, which makes it easy to avoid the club’s notoriously long wait, with many non-reserved patrons lining up way before 10 p.m. in order to secure a spot. Although Storyville’s doormen have been known to keep queued up patrons waiting for quite a while, the “story” once inside the club’s doors is one of friendly, attentive wait staff, affordable drinks and surprisingly delicious cuisine; a place where both VIPs and those-out-in-the-cold can eat, drink and be merry.
