  • "Taking Care" of a Host

    I frequent these forums often but haven't seen this come up.

    On our last trip we decided to wing the last night. I hit up a host and he said he could get my group (3 guys/3 girls) into Hakkasan. It was Sunday night with Above & Beyond spinning.

    What is the proper amount to tip a host in a situation like this? It was late, I think around 1am. Tickets I think that night were $40 for guys and $20 for girls. Is it up to our discretion or is there a certain amount per head that is the norm?

    On a Sunday you can usually get guest list- free entry which ends at like 12am
    Other then that its up to you

      I would have given $100 for 6 people. Given its sunday that should have also taken care of cover.

          I would say anything from 100-300 is average.

            I have been wondering about this as well...

            In a few weeks we are doing a Daybed at Wet on Friday for Hot 100, planning an a hundy, Friday night we are doing a table at Gold Lounge, I have a free comp through my vegas, also planning on a hundy. Daybed at Light on Saturday, same thing, hundy, and then Saturday night at Marquee we have a low minimum, I am assuming its a Library, outside, or hip hop room so I am thinking 200-300 to see if he would put us in an empty dance floor table.

            Anyone think those are too high / too low?

              The marquee situation sounds like it is unlikely to happen. The otheds depend on the min spend I guess

                Sat at Marquee there will be no empty DF tables, and even if there were, they would be going to the next highest min with the best shake. Which would probably be a 4k-6k min with 500-1000 shake. Your 200-300 shake might get you patio, instead of library or hip hop.

                  do you by chance mean empty dancefloor table in the library/hip hop/ outside?

                  Hip hop room isnt big, most tables surround the df anyway
                  library has no dancefloor that i can remember.
                  outside does have a small dancing area.

                  If you mean an empty dancefloor table inside. no way. there wont be one and the mins on saturdays start at 2k+ and thats for cloud bar/backwall
