Owning a night club can be one of the coolest businesses in the world. It is a business which offers entertainment at work which is hard to find in most of the corporative businesses. Night Clubs can be fun and games, and one can expect a great crowd (customers) who will be spending carelessly if they like the place. The revenue of a night club depends on several factors and understanding it is important for the success of the business. These tips will help you to know how to run a good nightclub and make regular profits. But before everything, you will need the right mindset to decide what kind of nightclub you really want to open.
Make an Identity
Why is your night club special? What makes it different from the night club on the other side of the street? These are the type of questions you need to ask yourself. The most successful nightclubs do not open on all days, which makes people want more of it. Start with two or three nights a week. Let people talk about you for the rest of the days till they can come back for more.
Make your night club look more professional and not just someplace to crash for drinks. Have strict entry regulations. Do not let too many men inside your club or you will chase way your female crowd, which will reduce the male crowd too with time. Keep three male to five female ratios inside the club. Maintain a good environment inside the club and do not allow any insane activities at all, as it will create a bad image of the club instantly. You can also keep a dress code and high prices to have the right kind of people in the club.
Hire professional staff
Hire a professional and trained staff to keep your customers satisfied with your service. You will be dealing with high-class customers, and the staff should be able to provide the service they are used to in other clubs. Have a meeting with the staff every day to discuss what went wrong and what can be improved. The staff should be able to handle any kind of situation without stress as long as it is their responsibility.
Get the best stereo
A night club requires the best speakers and music before anything. Your crowd should always stay entertained with good music and quality food and beverages. Book good and known DJ’s who can play for your crowd. It will help in building your image, as people will know that you have good artists playing in your club.
Keep your best customers happy
Meet your customers and get to know them. Do not force your greetings on them. Try to create a good relationship with your regular customers by complimenting them with VIP services, complimentary drinks, meeting the artists. Your loyal customers are definitely your major sources on making profits, and you need to make sure that they are comfortable in your club.
Keep things fresh
Do not go out of fashion. Always implement new ideas to improvise your club’s services, ambience and entertainment. Expand your club to more floors and offer restaurant services and special party areas for VIP customers. Learn from your competitors and find out what is new that you can implement in your club as well.
The venue when managing a nightclub means everything when it comes to inviting guests inside. Without the right look, feel or even meaning behind opening the doors, you’re guests will not be inspired, they will not be impressed and they will not want to stay. Consider tips for designing the venue and making it stand out when you feel that you could up the area a bit and design a new look for those guests to enjoy when they come for the night.
- Less is better. You do not want to overload your area with too much stuff. You want large, open spaces and minimal items around. Keep chairs and comfortable sofas to the side, open the dance floor, keep the DJ off the floor and set up the bar to the side.
- Go with a modern feel to the area. You can choose one to three bold, bright colors that work together and then place them throughout your venue. They should be on everything that is used within the space from the chairs to the walls and floors.
- Do not have too much light throughout the venue. This can kill the mood. Soft, subtle light throughout the entire area is enough and you can then feel happy about not putting giant spotlights throughout the entire area.
According to statistics, the ambience throughout a nightlife venue means everything according to 79% of guests, while an additional 15% stated that without the ideal lighting or music; they would not want to stay. When designing the ideal space for your guests to hang out, make sure to take advantage of the various tips and tricks placed everywhere. Having themed nights gives you a chance to explore yourself, your venue and your capabilities for making a themed party one of the most exciting in the area. If you’re having a party, a large party, contact a paper or other news outlet so that they are able to provide coverage on the entire happening. This will also give you good publicity if it is a hit – so make sure that it is!
Any entrepreneur will face and should accept a level of risk in any new business venture. Starting a nightclub, however, has anywhere between a 70 and 80 per cent failure rate within the first year. This is an uphill battle from the beginning that only the lionhearted and those experienced in at least a similar field should not attempt. Large sums of money and a dream alone will not lead to profitability and longevity. Serious thoughts of starting a nightclub should start from a vision, or concept to fill a niche in either a large crossover of demographics or leaning toward a segmented audience. Whatever idea sets the wheels in motion, it needs to be geared toward a focus group as a niche to be filled.
The days of the next club having more flashing lights and louder speakers are of a bygone period. There has to be reasons for repeat customers and those that join them. The club should stand out from the crowd. Carry that vision in choosing a location. The average club ranges in size between 3,500 and 7,000 square feet. The least expensive, and neighbourhood friendly venue would be an old club that closed and had no negative community backlash. Other successful reformed sites include warehouses and retired firehouses, among others. Zoning laws, security, and the easy access of desired patrons should be considered. Turning that dream into reality will involve careful planning on many fronts. The foundation is a detailed business plan. This plan will determine funding by either investors or banks.
They need to feel a level of comfort in even the smallest arenas. It will take either experience in the field, or assistance from a reliable source to complete this task in a favourable note. This extensive document should encompass everything from beginning capital needs to real continued operating expenses. The ability to obtain all licensing, permits and business insurance is necessary to bolster your case for financing, and a need to be met for any further consideration of your dream. Hiring contractors, suppliers, and staff should be done with great attention to reliability. The addition of a promoter can be usurped by a strong knowledge of marketing in this field. Meeting and exceeding the expectations of clientele is needed for not only starting a nightclub, but seeing it last. From the grand opening on, the success of this business entails a labor of many hours and lasting dedication.
