Picture your favorite hot spot in the country. Is it a rooftop bar in Las Vegas, an upscale New York City nightclub or a rustic beer hall in Texas?
If you’re a good judge of impressive nightlife, there’s a good chance your favorite spot made Nightclub & Bar’s 2015 list of the Top 100 venues around the country. It is the nation’s only annual listing of high-volume nightlife venues, naming the most revenue-generating nightclub, bar and lounge venues in the last year.
The ranking also highlights the significance of technology in these spaces, which is evident in the photos. These top ranking bars are made all the more hip and flashy with integrated AV, lighting, wall-to-wall TVs… you name it.
If you’re a system integrator or consultant who works in the bar and restaurant space, things are looking up. The top ranking bar on Nightclub & Bar’s 2015 list is XS Nightclub in Las Vegas for the third year in a row, this year coming in between $103 and $105 million in yearly revenue. In 2014, that number was $90 to $95 million.
The Top 100 total combined revenue was off the charts with $1.36 billion in total revenue in the past year. It was a “record-breaking year for nightclubs across the country,” says Nightclub & Bar.
