Want to throw Classic Events in your bar?

Events are great business, make sure you boost your slow days with great events.

Classic events for you to throw in your bars.

Let’s say this straight; alcohol brings people in. But, is it enough to be profitable? Maybe your bar offers great drinks, cocktails, a wide set of wine/whiskey/beer to pick from. Maybe your strength in selling comes from a great service, great decoration or theme. But when that’s just not enough, then you should consider adding some spice into the formula with some classic events!

Best classic events to make in your bar.

These are the best ways to add a reason to visit your bar. I am not saying that every bar can use these to make money.But many bars in the past have used these. Some of these events are also only quick fixes and will fizzle out eventually! 

Let’s start with some Dangerous Classics. drinking games:

Drinking games should not be your go to event unless you are in a area that has lots of students. Two this to remember with drinking games . One, Overly drunk people do not look good for your bar. Two, Laws check your responsible service laws before as some countries it’s not allowed to promote irresponsible drinking.

Apart from that stupid drinking games can encourage a good atmosphere.

1. Beer Pong:

This almighty ‘Merica-made drinking game is the best way to have fun while drinking with your pals. You can definitely get some great selling nights if you throw in some Beer Pong tournament in your bar. When you see people playing, you’ll definitely want to play, too!

2. Power Hour:

Drink until you can drink no more! remember those laws we talked about.

3. Flip Cup:

Drink as fast as you can and then try to “flip the cup” and landing it right. more of a house party game, but we have seen some active bar owners promoting this in student bars to get the mood going.

Karaoke night/ Open mic:

Everything that involves drinking and public speaking/singing, involves fun. You can start a stand-up night tradition that makes your bar very popular. Or your bar will be the next go-to when people feel like both drinking and singing!

Live Music:

You’ve had enough of amateurs? Then get some pro singer on stage and start making a profit out of his singing talent! You can get to discover a new rising star by giving this chance to someone, or maybe get your regulars to really fell in love with their voices/playing skills.

Charity events:

If you want to appeal to the kind-hearted drinking-demons of your community, then this is definitely the right way. You can get you Meat Raffles going with this one, or maybe turn one of the other events listed here into a charity donation!

Broadcasting important games:

It’s FIFA World Cup time? Or maybe Rugby World Cup? It’s time to dress up your bar with your national team (Go Wallabies!) or maybe with both contenders’ colors. This is definitely a good idea, especially if can serve some quality Nachos or other snacks!

Sports contest:

It’s time to discover the sports talent of your customers! This could be as simple as a muscle-up contest, or maybe a push-up contest, and as complicated as initiating a bar-league of soccer. You can offer a nice eye-catching prize to attract new customers into participating.

Go creative with classic events!

All of these classic events can result in a great profit, marketing and acquaintances for your bar. Consider them to be a nice investment, and you’ll definitely get the best out of them. Most of these classics have very low overheads to start.
