LAS VEGAS – Nightclub & Bar Media Group continues to serve as the industry’s leading source for identifying top nightlife venues with the opening of its survey for the 2014 Top 100 list. Serving as the nation’s only annual listing of revenue-based nightlife venues, inclusion in the Nightclub & Bar Top 100 list has become a coveted label for premier nightlife destinations throughout the United States. The selection process for this year’s roster is currently underway, and all surveys must be completed by Friday, Dec. 6.
“The Top 100 list has come to serve as the authoritative, go-to source for nightlife operators, fans, media and industry executives,” said Jon Taffer, president of Nightclub & Bar Media Group and host and executive producer of Spike TV’s “Bar Rescue.” “Each year, the Top 100 competition gets tougher as venues continue to push conventional boundaries and we look to identify those who have perfected the craft of efficiency, generating revenue and always leaving their guests wanting more. With our Top 100 survey, we showcase the best of the best, and 2014 will be another exciting year.”
With each passing year, the Top 100 operators set new precedents for fellow venues to study when evaluating their own business models. In 2013, the Top 100 list featured two record-breaking Las Vegas nightclubs tied for the number one spot – XS Nightclub and Marquee Las Vegas. Each venue generated astounding annual revenues in excess of $80 million. Overall, Las Vegas venues controlled a majority of the top spots in 2013 with the city representing seven of the top 10 venues on the list.
“Nightlife venues of any size from across the country are encouraged to participate in this year’s survey,” said Kristen Santoro, conference and content director of Nightclub & Bar Media Group. “Each year we are amazed with the amount of submissions we receive and hope to continue the journey as the leading source of identifying top nightlife venues. The Top 100 list is not just a ranking, but also a guide for nightlife operators to better understand industry trends, growth, and performance opportunities.”
The 2014 Top 100 list will be published on and celebrated with an exclusive party on Tuesday, March 25 at XS Nightclub in Las Vegas. Awards will be presented to the Top 10 venues of the Top 100 at the 2014 Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show on Tuesday, March 25 at 2 p.m. PST.
