You can get into the club with a few different options. If you want a table, simply inform the suit of the type of bottle you plan on purchasing, he will choose how good your table will be. Don’t be shy to ask up front whether it’s ok to give him a tip. That gesture will almost always bump you up a notch and it’s the respectful way to go about it.
If possible it’s best to actually plan ahead and reserve a table earlier in the day by calling the club. They will put you on the guest list and it will give you the best chance of getting into a packed club. This is especially important on the weekend, when it’s most crowded.
It’s no secret that on Friday and Saturday night you can’t really go wrong regardless of the club you choose but during the week, make sure to do a little research to uncover the hot spot for that particular day. You will find that there’s a different hot spot depending on the day. From “industry night” to “locals night”, clubs are trying to get some business during the week by providing special theme nights.
