Bar, Nightclub Business Showcased in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS - The partying and the music last all night long in Las Vegas, and high-end clubs are raking in the dough.

Nightclub and Bar Magazine has named 100 of the country's highest-grossing hot spots. Eight of the top 10 are in Las Vegas. Marquee at the Cosmopolitan tops the list, pulling in $70 to $80 million in revenue last year. XS, Tao, Pure, LAX, Haze, Surrender, the Bank and Lavo also made the top ten.

The Nightclub and Bar Convention and Trade Show is taking place in Las Vegas this week. The show provides a location where business deals are made and products are launched in this vibrant industry.

Bruvado Imports is introducing the 5-pack/10 drink at the convention. The product combines Mexican lager and top-shelf spirits.

"We like to call it party-in-a-pack. It gives some great convenience for the shopper," said Bruvado Imports' Howard Wishner. "I mean, Las Vegas. How can you ask for a better place to introduce great alcohol and a great beer?"

Vendors want their products sold in the country's hottest clubs.

"Our goal is to really make a splash and a wow factor with SXLiquors," said SXLiquors CEO David Knight. "It's a brand new brand that was launched in Miami middle of last year."

If your club needs a bar that lights up and has unlimited design options, one model sells for $2,500 at the show.

"One night, you can have a wood-style bar," said Adam Rozen with Smart Bar Products. "With the same bar the following night, you can have a South Beach-kind of look of the bar."

Innova Products Limited is displaying glasses that withstand weight. "It doesn't break. It's virtually unbreakable, like a bulletproof glass," said Innova's John Corveleyn.

Revention POS, meanwhile, offers registers for busy bartenders who serve costly cocktails.

"We're in about 10 percent of the top 100 bar and nightclubs in the nation, probably one of the easiest systems to use. Bartender feedback is they love it," said Ross Patton with Revention.

Several celebrities are scheduled to appear at the convention and industry parties, including Toby Keith, 50 Cent, Pauly Shore, and Dennis Rodman.
