What is bottle service exactly?
Bottle Service, also known as Table Service, can be confusing and tricky to new customers who have never done it before. Don't fret – we have you covered.
Bottle service (synonymous with "getting a table") is essentially a way for you to get your own private section at a nightclub, so you have a place to sit, drink, and have a great time with your friends and others. In order to secure bottle service, you do have to pay significantly more money than you would for just general admission (you are usually shelling out hundreds to thousands of dollars).
It's not for everyone, but we highly recommend doing it at Side Bar at least once in your life.

Can I order individual drinks instead of bottles to hit my minimum spend?
Most nightclubs require you to order bottles in order to reserve the table, since ordering individual drinks places undue pressure on your table server and bar staff during the prime hours of the club. However, some venues will allow à la carte cocktails / shots / beers. Contact us for more details about ordering at Side Bar.
