Nightclubs are becoming more profitable than ever before, thanks to the United States’ new-found love for all things EDM. Technomic, a food industry consulting firm, have just released their list of the top grossing nightclubs and bars in the country and the numbers are pretty staggering. Many of the clubs are in major cities such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, and Miami but there are a number of clubs on the list that may come as surprises. Pictured above is my personal favorite club, Avalon Hollywood, which ranks in at #16.
