The Nightclub

Company Summary

The key elements of The Nightclub’s concept are as follows:

  1. Entertainment and dance based themes — The company will focus on themes that have mass appeal.
  2. Distinctive design features — The Nightclub will be characterized by the elaborate dance club situated in a spectator setting which comfortably accommodates 350 guests. The area will also offer three private sky boxes which can be combined for use in a conference or private party setting. This room is intended for special events and daily use. The adjoining dining room and bar would present an inviting and relaxing atmosphere, which displays a collection of musical and dance memorabilia. A live dj will coordinate the events and entertain the patrons with music and games during music breaks and off-times.
  3. Location, location, location — One of the major advantages that The Nightclub will have over its competition will be its location in the new, high-profile Your Town Center.
  4. Gaming — The Nightclub will provide several interactive style video games and pool tables to provide for both additional entertainment and revenue.
  5. Quality food — All would be lost without special attention being paid to the level of food quality. A simple menu offering foods similar to those found at a premier venue. Traditional ‘bar’ appetizers will be on hand for people craving nachos, wings, or quesadillas while they drink and enjoy themselves.
  6. Exceptional service — In order to reach and maintain a unique image of quality, the Nightclub will provide attentive and friendly service through a high ratio of service personnel to customers, and will also invest in the training and supervision of its employees. We estimate nearly one service staff member for every 35 guests.
