Nobody likes to go to a bar or nightclub that’s empty. Chances are, it’s empty for a reason.
And it’s likely to close soon.
There’s a reason that most nightclubs and bars operate on a cash-only basis – they may not be around long enough to warrant opening a credit card processing account with their bank. If they even have a bank at all.
Not so much with popular clubs and bars — they are popular because people WANT to be there.
To see and be seen.
And some of these clubs are making money hand over fist. No wonder they can afford to pay celebrities upwards of $100,000 a night just to show their face in the door and hopefully attract the Beautiful People to come in.
