Booze Delivery By Drone

Latest Twist On Las Vegas Nightclub Scene

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas clubbers looking for a buzz might just find their next drink buzzing overhead.

The Marquee Dayclub at the Cosmopolitan casino surprised guests over Memorial Day weekend when it started delivering bottles of alcohol by drone.

Jason Strauss of parent company Tao Group says the flying objects were first brought in to capture aerial footage of the thousands of partiers in the pool area.

But he says operators came up with the idea of booze drops when they found the drone could carry up to 12 pounds.

Marquee will bring out the drone on request from bottle service guests, who sometimes pay tens of thousands of dollars to rent out a cabana and buy food and drink for their friends.

The aircraft is operated by professionals and carries insurance.
