    Depends what you mean by better. If cheap hookers are your bag, then Montreal all the way. Otherwise I'll take Vegas every day of the week.
    Quality and variety of food per cost is better, bottle service is better, plenty of night clubs to pick from. In Vegas you get 5 bottles for example, you're still a nobody who is made to think you're a somebody cause you got seat. Not to mention strip in montreal are the shit!!!

    it helps you break the ice. clubs are crowded as hell and it's a lot harder to get to know people when you're squeezed on the dance floor. like others have mentioned, girls will literally be lining up outside your roped off area hoping to get invited in so at least it makes it easier to get started. If you can't close with a random while you're at a bottle service table, you're almost certainly not going to be able to seal the deal in the main area without bottle service.

    also remember, drinks are $25 at these clubs. if you buy a few for yourself and maybe a couple for friends/ladies, you're easily at $200-300 USD... add another $100-200USD split between some friends and you can have a table instead. it's the way to go IMO, especially on a bachelor party.
    So it's basically prostitution with extra steps

    It's the adult males version of my daughters princess party. She loves to dress up and pretend she's something she's not. Same deal with those dudes getting bottle service, it's pure fantasy.
    my god, if middle age brings me this brutal level of savage clarity I'm not sure I'm ready for it.

    I’m heading there this Friday, most likely will do bottle service one night. I would much rather have dedicated seating and space to relax while enjoying the environment then standing in a crowded club.

    It’s been so long, it will be interesting to see how much it has changed.

    Have a good time! I agree with you, paying a bit to have a place to sit is what I value the most. Not having to line up for drinks and deal with the crowd of people is definitely worth the bottles for me.

    Don't misunderstand me, I've done it, and I'll do it again, but I like pretending to be important.

    Funny how things change. When you're 21 it's like "1000$!! I ain't paying for that ripoff!". Then at 25 it's like "I'm going to pay 1000$ to look cool in bottle service". Then at 35 it's like "1000$ sounds like a reasonable price to ensure nobody is in my fucking face"

    Absolutely! In my 20s it was all about lets find the cheapest hotel room and cram as many people in there as possible since we don't need to sleep but we need money to party. In my late 20s it became I need my own bed, but if the location is good I don't mind a cheaper hotel. Now in my 30s I`m like if I`m only going to sleep for 4 hours, it better be the best sleep of my life, and I need a rainfall shower with double vanity so I don`t have to share with my wife.

    Man this thread is weird to me. I don't think I understand humans.

    I've been to a lot of these Vegas clubs, including just about all of the ones mentioned, but only for corporate buyouts/open bars, so didn't pay anything. I have no clue why anyone would pay extra for one over the other, let alone pay these prices. All of the alcohol is the same, the loud music is roughly the same, and they only really vary in their gimmicky decor. One has shiny objects, another has a nice strip view, infinity pools, an elaborate stage, whatever. The only thing that made one better (or even different) from any other is if they had a good band playing, which doesn't have anything to do with the venue.

    I get the idea of dropping some cash to have fun, but who finds it fun to pay for the privilege to play pretend VIP? I could maybe see that if you were actually fooling anybody, but it's Vegas. Everybody in the club knows you aren't shit there, don't they?

    Then again, I don't get the instagram thing either.

    Also, girls work the casino floors at the high end places if you want that. Better ones than will fall for some pretend VIP game, and it wont even cost as much.

    I’m guessing you don’t like Michelin star restaurants, or high end hotels, or anything that costs money for a unique experience?

    To each their own with bottle service. But this line hear had me miffed. Do people still not "get" IG, Snapchat, FB, YouTube, etc in this day and age? It's all about money. Social media is a legitimate way to earn income. Do you understand why ABC can broadcast their content essentially for "Free"? It is because they sell advertising space known as commercials. The better the show, the bigger the audience, and therefore the more impressions that can be had from an advertisement, and the more money that advertising space is worth. Well Social Media is no different at all. If I create content on YouTube, and I am bringing 1 million viewers to Youtubes platform(which is just a marketing platform), YouTube will pay me for bringing those people in, so that YouTube can advertise to them.

    Same with Instagram. With a ton of followers, people will pay you to affiliate market their product. Like say you had a page that just posts cute dog pictures and you have a pile of followers. Iams might pay you to do a product placement in a photo, and then put a link to their product sales page in your description. Then you get paid a bonus on every bag of dog food someone buys through clicking on that link.

    Depending on how well you are marketing, a million followers on most platforms should net you around 200-500 grand a year. The car channels on YouTube are making around 7000$ per million views on a video which they rack up in about a week. Plus they sell merchandise like hats and T-shirts, do product placements for dollar shave club or Kove BT speakers. At 500,000 subscribers I would most certainly not be working any longer. And I'd be moving to Texas or something where it's cheap and has good weather all year.

    No. Most people using these have nothing at all to do with this. I know many people who are active on social media. I know none of them getting paid, or even interested in being paid, or even considering using their profile for marketing. I get people who use it to earn money, but that isn't most people, and it's those ones that I don't get.
