Trendy Bar and Nightclub Business Startup:

How to Start, Run and Grow a Successful Bar and Tavern Business

By Michael Sanders

As a former bar owner, I can tell you that running a bar can be really fun. But, it can also be a lot of hard work. Looking back, I wish I had this handy book which is full of real good tips and advice on how to run a successful bar.

The interesting part of my personal journey as a bar owner is that I actually bought the bar, which was losing a lot of money, from a lady who I then hired as my manager. Almost 4 years later, and after making a lot of money, I sold it back to her and some of my waitresses. Unfortunately, she drove the bar right back into the ground. She was a great manager but a bad owner. Which proves owning a bar is not for everyone. This book also covers this dynamic and much more.

The book covers topics like:

  • Who And Why Should You Open A Bar
  • Profitability Of A Bar Business
