The Search for New Venues (An Invitation for Club Owners, Managers, DJs, Bartenders and Promoters)

By Gamal Hennessy

People often ask me for suggestions on what bars and clubs to go to. Sometimes they are going on a date. Sometimes they are throwing a party. Sometimes their client comes in from out of town looking for really tall blondes. Whatever the situation, I give them ideas based on what they like and the type of evening they want to have.

While I have quite a few go to spots based on my travels, I’m always trying to expand my list of preferred places. I try to visit every place I recommend, but in an effort to save my liver from long term damage I’m going to try something different.

If you have an ongoing event or a venue that you would like me to add to my recommendation list, drop me an email and let me know. I will try to steer more patrons your way and improve your bottom line.

I’m not a promoter. I don’t charge for this hook up. I don’t want a cut of your revenue. I don’t want a table. I don’t even want you to mention me to your clients (I don’t mind if you do, I’m just not going to ask you to do it). That’s not the business I’m in. I deal in information. This is a word of mouth thing. The more good spots I know about, the happier my readers are and better off I am. The more people I bring to you, the more money you make, the better off you are.

If you want your spot to be considered for the Prince’s List, here’s what I need to know:

The day of the week for your event.
The start and end time of your party.
The type of music being played.
The demographic of your crowd.
The type of food (if any) and drinks you have.
The fixed cost of attendance (cover, ticket price, drink minimums, etc)
The name and email of a contact who I can touch base with if I have any other questions.

If you have any questions for me, just drop me a line

Have fun.
