Nightclub & Bar Top 100 Survey Opens

Nightclub & Bar Media Group announces the availability of the annual Top 100 operator survey, the first step in identifying the largest-volume nightclub, bar and lounge venues in the U.S. To create the 2013 Top 100 roster -- the nation’s only annual listing of high-volume nightlife venues -- Nightclub & Bar has once again teamed up with Technomic, Inc., a consulting and market research firm specializing in food, beverage and hospitality. 

“We are really excited to kick-off the 2013 Top 100 program and shine a spotlight on the best of the best bars and clubs,” said Jon Taffer, president of Nightclub & Bar. “There are top-notch operators running highly successful clubs and bars across the country, and every year we identify and celebrate the most cutting-edge, exciting and well-run venues. The Top 100 list represents the best of the best – the bars and clubs that keep the crowds coming, the energy high and the dollars flowing – and 2013 promises to be another roster of stellar operations.”

The survey also yields important information about industry trends and performance, allowing nightlife operators to benchmark their venues. In addition to the survey results, Technomic utilizes secondary research in developing the Top 100 roster. The 2012 Top 100 roster included venues ranging from No. 1-ranked Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub in Las Vegas, which reported 2011 revenue in excess of a record-breaking $70 million, as well as operations in smaller markets including Kansas City, MO and Knoxville, TN.

“We encourage operators of nightclubs, bars and lounges of all sizes and in all markets to participate in the survey,” said Donna Hood Crecca, senior director, Technomic. “Not only might your venue rank among the nation’s top-volume clubs and bars – and you’ll get all the celebration and recognition that goes with that -- but you are also helping showcase the sheer size of this important industry. Plus, the survey results are a tool for all operators to understand the trends, and provide a way to measure your own operation’s performance and spot new opportunities to grow.”

The 2013 Top 100 will be published on and celebrated at the 2013 Nightclub & Bar Show, March 19-21 in Las Vegas. To see the 2012 Top 100 roster, click here. For more information about the 2013 Top 100 survey, click here.
