Las Vegas is all about having luxury at your fingertips, and the new Moet & Chandon champagne vending machine at the Mandarin Oriental hotel is no exception.
The Sky Lobby on the 23rd floor of the hotel now boasts the machine, which sells personal-sized bottles of brut or rose champagne using a $20 gold token which can be purchased at the floor’s bar. You can also buy a golden flute topper if you aren’t in the mood to drink it straight from the bottle, or just get a glass from the bar.
Limiting human interaction when purchasing food or drinks in nothing new in America: Pizza ATMs are also spreading across the country. Xavier University recently installed a pizza vending machine on campus that delivers 12-inch pizzas for $9-$10, 24 hours a day. The ‘zas are made by the dining staff at the university, so buyers know it’s relatively fresh. The machine is produced by a company called Paline that is currently hiring regional distributors to spread the ATMs across the country.
As for Vegas’ champagne vending machine, it’s currently the only one of its kind in the U.S., but a proposed bill in Connecticut could make them a whole lot more common. Earlier this year, a bill was proposed that would make self-serve alcohol machines completely legal. Instead of getting carded, the buyer would submit both a credit card and government-issued ID to the machine, and an online database would make sure the payment card is linked to a buyer of legal drinking age.
Whether it become legal across the country or not, Vegas is the perfect place for Moet to test run the machine. If it’s a success (why wouldn’t it be?) you’ll likely see more popping up in Vegas very soon.
