Nightclub & Bar Media Group, the most trusted source for bar, nightclub and beverage professionals, announced the launch of the 7th annual Top 100 Survey, sponsored by 2TouchPOS.  Serving as the nation’s only annual revenue-based listing of high-grossing nightlife venues, inclusion in the Nightclub & Bar Top 100 list has become a coveted achievement for premier nightlife destinations and reflects important insights on the state of the nightlife industry.

Nightclubs, lounges, and bars from across the country – of all sizes and markets – are encouraged to participate.  All surveys must be completed by Monday, December 8, 2014. Results will be released in January 2015.

“We can proudly say that the Top 100 List has grown to become the most definitive national list that recognizes America's highest-performing nightlife venues,” said Jon Taffer, president of Nightclub & Bar Media Group and host and executive producer of Spike TV's Bar Rescue. “Our list spotlights the best of the best—the venues that are not only generating revenue, but pushing the boundaries and creating an unforgettable experience for their guests and I know we are going to have some tough competition for 2015.”

Being featured in the Top 100 includes perks such as: being published in Nightclub & Bar’s widely distributed e-newsletters and on, which averages more than 4.3 million page views a year; and being honored during the highly anticipated Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show on March 30-April 1, 2015 and celebrated at the industry’s biggest night out of the year- the annual Top 100 Platinum Party.

In 2014, XS Nightclub at Encore Las Vegas secured the top spot for the second consecutive year generating more than $90 million.  Overall, Las Vegas venues continued to control a majority of the top spots in 2014 with the city representing seven of the top ten venues on the list.

“The number of submissions received continues to grow each year, proving the nightclub industry is in a positive place,” said Kristen Santoro, conference and content director of Nightclub & Bar Media Group. “We hope to continue expanding our reach and providing nightlife venues and operators the premier industry guide to look to on how to grow, perform, and succeed.”
