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 Arena at least once in your life.
