if you have your own table, even if its not in the vip "room", you won't be standing in a crowd of drunk, sweaty people. although some tables are in more crowded areas but usually you can make a request. like i said, it all depends on how well you take care of the server. as for the 897985% charge on a bottle of grey goose in NYC. if you take all the over head of the club (staff, insurance, liquor license, utilities, maintenance, and decor) and then add some profit, you get the price of the bottles. just because the bottle is $60 in the store and $500 in the club doesn't mean they are raking in $440 a bottle. they make a pretty penny but to be in a nice place in one of the most expensive city's in the world is going to cost you.
