Clip Joint - Bottle Service Clubs

Bottle Service Clubs

The Manhattan bottle service club Arena was sued in 2007 for their version of the clip joint scam. In December 2007, a patron knowingly purchased a $350 bottle of vodka, but was not told of a 3 bottle minimum. At the end of the night, he was presented with a $1050 tab that included two unordered bottles. When he refused to pay, the Arena bouncers beat him up. The patron agreed to get money from an ATM. The bouncers escorted him two blocks to the ATM, where his debit card was declined. The bouncers then dragged him back to the bar, where he was held until police arrived. He was arrested for theft of services but the charges were dismissed.

Famous quotes containing the words clubs, bottle and/or service:

    As night returns bringing doubts
    That swarm around the sleeper’s head
    But are fended off with clubs and knives ...
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    A baby nurse is one that changes diapers and loves ‘em dearly. Get up at all hours of the night to give ‘em the bottle and change their pants. If the baby coughs or cries, you have to find out the need. I had my own room usually, but I slept in the same room with the baby. I would take full charge. It was twenty-four hours. I used to have one day a week off and I’d go home and see my own two little ones.
    Ruth Lindstrom (c. 1892–?)

    Let the good service of well-deservers be never rewarded with loss. Let their thanks be such as may encourage more strivers for the like.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)
