    Borderline obscene quantities, but pricing no different than the going rate in such places

    I wonder how many of the $500k Ace of Spaces bundles they have sold ...

    that's 109 bottles at a price of almost $4600 per bottle.

    I don't care how rich people are. Charging those prices is ridiculous and obscene.

    Any idiot paying face value is subsidizing the casino giving it to high rollers.

    Imagine the theo needed to get the $500k worth of champagne comped!!!

    Basically that is there to make the other packages look more approachable. Some billionaire will order it eventually, though.

    My understanding has always been that people who are drinking at this level get it comped anyway. I thought it was just a useful tax diversion to tell people that this was the cost of alcohol.

    naw, most of the big players couldn't care less about clubs. the people who buy these packages are the LA millionaires with nothing better to do on a Saturday night. the big players are at the tables.

    Well, someone has to pay the house DJ his $22 million a year. (You read that right.)

    HA! No one is subsidizing anything for the high rollers. The high rollers are "paying" much more than face value for anything the casino gives them.

    I wouldn't care how well off I was, no way I'd pay those prices. Some logic requires a good solid blow to the head!

    there's a note at the bottom of the menu. 20% grat + 4% service charge automatically added. so that 500k package just became 620k.

    I was told at hakkasan it's 22% auto grat, 8.1% US Tax, 10% LET Tax
