All You Need Or Want To Know About VIP Hosts

New, 3 comments

More from the awesome world of VIP hosts and hostesses at nightclubs, as the Observer learns that these party concierges can usually get a $1,500 to $2,000 per week retainer and a percentage of whatever their clients spend over a certain threshold, with some earning several thousand dollars per night. But the work doesn't stop when the music ends; a VIP host will also accompany a client for dinners, shopping, vacations and doctor appointments. OK, the last one is made up. All in all, it doesn't sound like too bad of a gig, especially during the Great Recession. But just like a hooker won't kiss a John on the mouth, a smart VIP host knows never to get involved with a client. As former VIP hostess and current Cain and Goldbar owner Jayma Cardossa learned, "the minute you become involved with your client, you lose that client." Amen to that.
