Boston Says No to Bottle Service

In a reversal of the fast-growing trend, Boston has banned bottle service.

Most people see bottle service with VIP treatment at a hot club in a big city a special treat and a perk of being able to afford spendy bottles of booze. But one Boston official disagrees and is cracking down on the clubs that offer bottle service to their clients. His argument? That the price of the bottle causes patrons to feel they have to down the whole thing before the night is over which, consequently, steps on the toes of the “happy hour” law of a two-drink max per patron.

Hooray for the average guy!

Just before every bar stool in the nation required buying a full bottle of booze. I’ve been to clubs where every seat requires bottle service, it is a bit much.
