Industry Spotlight: VIP Voyeur Women

When Voyeur first opened its doors in 2009, San Diego was riveted by shock waves sent through its epicenter downtown. Suddenly, we had bass. Loud bass, booming through the sound systems of entrancing house and electronic music. There were crowds too, eager for a taste of this new L.E.D. vision. And of course, there were the bottle service girls who rallied the masses and kept us wanting more.

Two years later, the bottle service girls of Voyeur are still sizzlin’ and amping up the hordes of party people against the backdrop of the 20-ft L.E.D. wall. With the help of resident DJs like Anthony Ross and Mr. White, the classy ladies of Voyeur commit to ensuring that we all rage like we’ve never raged before, spellbound in this world of endless electro. As recent star DJs such as Kaskade and Afrojack have graced the Voyeur tables and the hosted events keep getting more out of control (see: No Pants Dance Industry Mankini Contest + Champagne Spraying Party), the girls have been busy bees popping bottles and serving the champagne to keep us dancing, pumping up high-energy with sexy 'fits, and partying right alongside of us by the end of the night.

Get to know some of the Voyeur Bottle Service girls in this week's Industry spotlight…

DiscoverSD: How did you get started at Voyeur? How did you get into the San Diego nightlife industry?

Alana Kari: I started working at Voyeur because I had a few good friends that worked there, and it’s my favorite club so I thought it would be so fun!

Christine Hrusecky: I started at Voyeur last October because I was looking for a change in venues. I got started in the industry about 6 years ago when I was hired as bottle service at Belo.

Eileen Lofgren: I am the newest to join the Voyeur crew... I went for the first time on my 21st birthday... met the infamous “Twilight” (one of the security). I would come almost every weekend to hang with him and dance… just over a year later I’m single and now working HERE! I’ve always felt a part of the Voyeur fam-bam but now it’s just official.

Lindsey Frank: I met the right people at the right time.  Voyeur was getting ready to open and I heard great things about it. I was lucky to get the job at the beginning because it’s been amazing being a part of its growth.

 

DSD: What makes working at Voyeur more unique than other San Diego nightclubs?

Alana: Working at Voyeur is completely different from any other club because we really are like a big family! We work hard but it’s a very relaxed, inviting atmosphere too. Everyone gets along and always has a great time together.

Christine: There are many reasons that make Voyeur unique, most importantly it's the music- we are strictly a house music venue, not to mention we are ranked #68 in the world! The venue itself is unlike anywhere else in SD, and the fact that everyone that works there is family. 

Eileen: Our vibe and caliber of music. No one can even touch the high profile DJs we get in our club... not to mention our LED wall… come on it’s a given !

Lindsey: Voyeur is different than all the other San Diego nightclubs because everyone is there for the love of the music.  Voyeur brought house music to the streets of downtown before the trend hit the rest of the clubs.

 

DSD: How do you try to elevate the vibe of Voyeur?

Alana: The vibe at Voyeur is so strong, every time I come in feeling tired or down as soon as the music and the lights start, my mood immediately changes and I get excited for the night.

Christine: Elevating the vibe at Voyeur isn't hard because it's the music that brings in the crowds. I'm just there to make sure everyone is having the best time possible.

Eileen: There’s no trying!!! The energy in that place is palpable on any given night. It’s the magical combination of amazing staff, insane music and that LED wall !!!!

Lindsey: The vibe is naturally elevated by the talent that is brought to the club on a regular basis and the frequent special guests. 

TaysiaShaffer: I have fun wherever im at and I believe everyone feeds off of others energy…add voyeurs atmosphere and dirty beats and comeon…you dont have to threaten me with a good time.

DSD: How do you prep for a big night, like when Kaskade showed up? What’s your trick to handling large and rambunctious crowds?

Alana: To prep for a big night I usually relax all day. I don’t get discouraged or overwhelmed easily so big nights don’t affect me much more than regular ones.

Christine: The trick is staying focused and having fun.

Eileen: That was only my second week working at Voyeur! Wow was it an amazing show... the mental preparation was minimal, just a good night sleep the night before. We’re often expected to handle large crowds and luckily our security plays a large role in how smooth the night goes... we’re the ones who try to get the crowd rambunctious ! We’re excited to work on nights like that because there’s usually not a sad person in the place… everyone is having the time of their lives and that makes our job easy.

Lindsey: The trick is to stay calm and make sure everyone is having a good time.  Control the controllable and push like hell through the crowd ;)

 

DSD: What’s your secret to keeping a slim and sexy physique?

Elena: Genetics and constant eating to keep my metabolism firing.

Alana: I am a very active person and naturally love to eat healthy! I work out with a trainer occasionally, do yoga, & do just about every outdoor activity.

Christine: I love to eat! So I definitely have to work out to counter balance my obsession with food. 

Lindsey: Running in heels up and down the stairs at Voyeur helps.

Eileen: CARDIO! There’s no reason to not go out for a 30 min. run when living in San Diego. It’s more of a therapy session than anything... so cardio, core power yoga and at least 6-8 large glasses of water a day. The sexy part comes from your confidence and how you rock it.

Taysia: I knew  you were checking out this god like physique (turn+hair whip)…deep breath. Ehhh eat and drink everything your heart desires but stay active. This summer has been crammed full…surf, hike, snorkel, kayak…go go go.

 

DSD: What’s one of the more difficult parts of your job?

Elena: Trying to go to the bathroom in my bodysuit.

Christine: It can get stressful at times especially because the venue is always packed.

Lindsey: Working instead of partying when big DJ’s come into town.  Although, those end up being the best nights to work!

Eileen: The hours! Sometimes we don’t leave until 3am and wow can it wipe out your next day.

 

DSD: When you’re not working at Voyeur, where do you enjoy partying in San Diego?

Alana: When I’m not working, I usually am seeing movies or hanging out with the family. I love going out to nice dinners along the coast and fun wine bars.

Christine:I love to stay pretty mellow when I'm not at Voyeur. I'm a huge fan of great restaurants and happy hour!

Eileen: Some of my favorite spots are Syrah Wine Parlor, Firehouse in PB, Stingaree and naturally during the summer time... Wavehouse !!!

DSD: What are some lessons you’ve learned from the nightlife industry?

Elena: Don't dance like no one is watching, because someone is. His name is Topher and those pictures will be all over Facebook in the morning.

Lindsey: -Always check the bottom of your shoes at the end of the night... people like to throw napkins and they stick when you step on them. 

-Support the clubs/bars/restaurants that support yours.  The industry is full of rad people.

-TIP your service well :)

Eileen:How to network ! Everyone has a story and sometimes my favorite part of the job is just getting to know one of our clients. We get people from all over the world and it’s an ever-learning process to understand how to deal and communicate with our eclectic clientele. 

 

DSD: What can guests expect from Voyeur in the coming months?

Elena: You can always expect a solid DJ, positive energy and good vibes.

Alana: Voyeur has had the best summer ever and we only continue to be booking the best talent in the world and having bigger and better parties. I cannot wait!

Christine: A great time! Voyeur is much more than a club, it's an experience.

Lindsey: Always getting better and bigger talent (if that’s possible). Voyeur & LED bring the best/biggest talent to San Diego.

Eileen: We’re pretty consistent in throwing the biggest parties known to San Diego so if you have been here before then you can relate... if you’re willing to give us a try you can expect DJ’s that frequent NY, Vegas and Ibiza... one hell of a bottle girl staff and that magical LED wall that will literally transcend you into a different world <3

Taysia: Expect raw beats that will have you grinding and beating on walls. And come ready to be one of the many taking campaign showers and caught in embarrassing positions when the lights come on for the last few songs.
