Unique ideas for promotional events at a bar
Ive been given the task of comming up with unique event ideas for the bar I work at. I figured there is a no better place to ask for ideas then on GLP. please help.. my boss says if we dont bring in revenue in the next three months the bar will be forced to close. Any ideas on how to draw a crowd, minus food drink specials and live music, weve tried that already. Thank u in advance ..... Ps I love GLP

anything involving hot, naked or near naked women works.

I am a semi pro MMA fighter and I've fought in quite a few bars across the country. They always seem to draw huge crowds.

Wet T-shirt contests, body shots, erotic theme nights. Basically, anything sexy.

A 1 hour binge where anyone that dies from alcohol poisoning does not have to pay for the drinks that got him/her dead. (A signed release is required to participate) You know you'll have at least 3 a night go for it.

mma fights seem to be a good idea, what kind of space would be needed and does mma provide the nessisary equipment for the fight?

Find a local promoter that runs their own events. Bring them in to the fold and let them handle all the event details. You just provide the space they specify and clean up on drink sales.

Have a casino night. I work part time as a blackjack dealer at casino parties. No it is not gambling with real money like Vegas. The people are given a ticket that is worth 5,000 casino chips and they get to play real casino table games with professional dealers. At the end of the night they trade what chips they got for tickets to be put in a raffle with prizes like TVs or bottles of wine or gift baskets. The more chip you win throughout the night the more tickets you get and better chances of winning a cool prize. Lots of restaurants and hotels do this and many places do it for charities and make a lot of money. Sometime they charge for the buy in tickets and people can buy more if they run out of chips.

Here is one company I have worked for. [link to www.floridacasinoparties.com]
This will give you more of an idea of what it is about. I live in Florida but you could google search casino party planners in your area.
