Sometimes, we just want to be spoiled a little bit. While not massively prevalent or common within most of the Boston club and bar scene, the practice of bottle service––that is to say, private, VIP treatment where liquor is sold by the bottle for clientele who seek a private, unique night out––does indeed exist for a number of establishments in and around the area. Here are some of the best places to go if you’re seeking to live the high life with your closest peeps––and maybe even a couple of beautiful strangers.

For an upscale night on the town, rent out a couple of VIP tables at Rumor, a Warrenton Street club which prides itself on serving guestes with all the amenities of high class status, even if it’s only for one night. As part of the VIP/bottle service package, a personalized guest list can be club staff, so your friends can feel like true celebrities when they’re “on the list” for your private shindig. All the while, bottles of your favorite liquor can be hand-delivered to your table, making you feel like a true high roller, or at least the star of your own music video.

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.

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.
