Any place you EVER drink at that isn't home or a friends you're probably paying significantly over retail.
This. Bottles are often cheaper than the equivalent amount of individual drinks as well.

Not back home though... a bottle in a Vegas nightclub would run you $1000 or more. Of course you get VIP access, some status crap, a table and seats in a standing room only place, and a personal serving girl for the evening to mix your drinks for you.

I think it needs to be noted as well that If you don't finish your bottle at the end of the night the remains will be left for you on your next visit.

That has to be taken into account as well

LoL, and if we're going to be noting things, I also hear you can get in for free if you tell the staff at the entrance you want a bottle and a table.

I went to Sharkeys for the first time in probably over a year this Saturday and I noticed a glass of wine in the fridge with blue duct tape over it. Curious, I asked the waitress what that was all about. I was (naively) expecting a story about the owner keeping a filled glass for a friend who had recently passed away or something. Nope, she told me girls leave their drinks there for later, lol. That has to be a new record! Not plastic cling wrap, but actual duct tape, haha. Cleaning that glass will be a bitch and the wine will probably taste like crap.
