To Insure Prompt Service

  • Gratuity
  • Pourboire
  • Propina
  • Gratifikation
  • 賜金

No matter what language you speak, it all boils down to one thing:


Today’s club shift – during the course of the evening, 5 patrons ordered 8 rounds of Paloma’s and Beer.  Only one out of the five left me a tip for every other drink.  The others would see him lay this this ‘strange money down’ while I would look at him and say, “Thank you sweetie” but they couldn’t for the life of them figure out WHY I began serving him first, another 3 people plus one, ahead of them.

If you’re handing us 20’s, 50’s or $100 dollar bills to pay for your drinks/food and NOT leaving a tip when we’re being attentive and such, you already know what’s up. If not, please ask somebody…  If you’re ordering some complicated drink (when you see we’ve got 20 other people also trying to get their re-lax-a-tion on or you’re being loud, obnoxious, and well, simply irritating to me, my partner and everyone around you – we’re looking for The TIP.

If you’re thinking about going out for a drink or a bite to eat; please factor in gratuity.

Your Bartenders and Waitstaff TRULY appreciate it!
