Planning a big night out in the Big Apple? Want to get on the VIP list at the city's hottest nightspots. Want to slip past the velvet rope without having to slip a 20 to anyone? And without standing on line.

What's more, you can get around from spot to spot in a chauffeured limo with its own bar – much like a rolling nightclub. You can bring your friends along, too. As many as 30 of them.

The folks at a company called Take Me Out want you to know they can do all this for you and much more. Their five different New York tours will take you everywhere from jumping' dance floors to pool parties. Or if you like they can set up a custom tour for you.

Depending on the size of your group, you'll zip around the city on wheels from a six-passenger Mini Cooper S to a Party Bus holding up to 30. In between there's the likes of a 12-passenger Porsche Cayenne, a Stretch Lincoln (10 passengers) and a Caddy Escalade (18 passengers), among others.

The tours – all guided by New York pros – typically run around three hours and make three stops along the way. One tour takes you back to the days of the Great Gatsby with stops at hip “speakeasies” hidden down dark alleys and decked out in Prohibition-era decor. Another popular tour features exotic drinks at trendy clubs said to “take your taste buds to a new level with a variety of unique and unusual recipes that you never imagined.”

Costs of the tours start at $100-$150 per person, plus drinks at the clubs. Champagne and other booze en route in the limos is comped.
