An online survey of operators conducted from Oct. 14 to Nov. 29, 2013, and yielded primary data from hundreds of nightclub, bar and lounge locations, from which key information and insights are generated. Secondary research involving public databases and sources, scans of major metropolitan markets and industry resources provided additional data points.
