Membership has its privileges. Hordes of ’em! For little more than their consistent patronage, beer fans can join the Stein Club at either of Vegas’ two Gordon Biersch locations, receiving an engraved locker and a personalized beer stein. Blush Boutique Nightclub’s top 20 customers can store belongings in their very own lockers. Vodka fans get a personalized cubby in the Red Square Vodka Vault for a cool $3,000 per year. Truly keeping the party under lock and key is the Playboy Club, which still offers memberships … for just $6,000 to join, renewable each year for another hefty sum. Members enjoy a laundry list of benefits, the least of which is the iconic emblem key. But the Original Gangsta award has to go to Victor Drai, who offered his best customers (at least 60 of them) wine lockers at his eponymous restaurant/nightclub from 1997 to 2007. In fact, Drai is rumored to still have a few bottles tucked away in the remaining lockers. Ownership, too, has its privileges.
