Selling More Drinks

A lot of times in entertainment is about selling drinks (that’s why a bar has a show. that’s why the nba has halftime shows). For a seated show like Scot Nery’s Boobietrap, this can be challenging. Here are some ideas to consider.

People don’t drink as much during the week. People don’t drink much at a seated show.

So you can raise prices on drinks, force people to buy drinks(like a comedy club), sell something else, change the environment, or promote to drinkers

Some ideas…

  • Encourage everyone to Uber to the show
  • Make special must try cocktails
  • Add an intermission
  • Presell drinks with tickets like a Hertz presells gasoline – it’s cheaper to buy drink tickets in advance
  • Make the bar more fun
  • Get a cocktail waiter
  • Do something pre show
  • Sell double sized drinks so people can sit thru the show
  • Sell mocktails that you can’t get anywhere else
  • Tell ticket buyers the drinks are great after they buy a ticket. Get them excited to drink but also ensure they don’t go to another spot before the show to pregame
