Top 100 Methodology
The 2010 Nightclub & Bar Top 100 list was developed by Nightclub & Bar in partnership with Technomic Inc. using primary and secondary research. An online survey of operators was conducted from October 14 to December 1, 2009, and yielded primary data from 600 nightclub, bar and lounge concepts from which key information and insights were generated. Secondary research involving public databases and sources, scans of major metropolitan markets and industry resources provided additional data points. Total revenues are presented in ranges for calendar year 2009; specific ranking is determined by estimated midpoint of annual revenue. Concepts included can operate in no more than five locations and must be operating all 12 months of calendar 2009.
