All You Need Or Want To Know About VIP Hosts

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.
