    Default Dead Bar Help!!

    So I work at a bar on the weekends.. I play top 40 remix music normally as we get a crowd from the popular club next door which we are no where near as nice. the bartenders are old the lighting sucks. I have tried everything and I am running out of ideas. everyone says that it is not me its the bar and bartenders. just wondering if anyone has any last ditch ideas to get people in here. I really want to make this place work as I like the enviroment. their idea of promotion is flyers on the window. I have thought about taking flyers to local colleges that is the only thing I can think of.

    The local bars where I live always have an ad in the paper with the bands/djs playing that week.

    This.

    If a bar isn't even willing to spend ANY money promoting properly, how can you expect people to come? Especially when you said it yourself, the staff is lame, the bar next door looks better....

    I'd say cut and run!

    Yeah, sounds like this was a "not-so-good" place, try hitting up that club and see what happens

    Do you live in the MidWest? Moved from that area to Denver due to the same type of business attitude.
