Will Bartenders Be Replaced With Drones?  The Las Vegas Experiment

How much would you pay to have a drone as your bartender?  This is the question being posed by CNN Money after the Marquee Dayclub at the the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas hotel began offering bottle service by drone to guests partying at its outdoor deck and cabanas.

"The guests just went wild," said Jason Strauss, co-owner of Tao Group, which is behind the property. "The drone was the celebrity of the day."

He went on to say that the drone was getting more attention than any celebrity that may have stepped foot in the establishment.

He said that when the drone appears and drops the bottle into the hands of the customer, everyone cheers.

"It's almost like a sporting event," he said.

While the drone does not expect to be tipped, customers will still be paying a hefty price for the service - $20,000 to be exact, though Strauss played down that number slightly.

With those types of costs, bartenders can breathe a sigh of relief for now.

The drone was initially obtained to photograph aerial views of the property.
