Nightlife is a challenging business, and these operators are savvy, smart pros who not only keep their venues fresh and exciting but also run their businesses well.”

More than 1,000 operators from across the nation took the survey last year, and the list featured top nightclubs and bars from the major markets as well as outstanding venues from locations around the country. In addition to revenue information, the survey also yields segmentation and performance benchmark information, providing insights on this important aspect of the on-premise industry.
