The Highest Grossing Nightclubs In America–2015

By on February 19, 2015 in ArticlesEntertainment

How do you feel about spending $500 on a bottle of alcohol at a club? It's something I've always been very disturbed by. How can someone possibly justify paying $500 for something that costs $30 at Costco??? Sure, you're getting other benefits, like a table, a private waitress, the feeling that you're a rock star for the night…but I'm still not sold. If someone wants to invite me to a club where someone else is buying bottles, I'll be there. Otherwise, you'll probably find me at a dive bar happy hour getting two-for-one beers.

But clearly there are lots of people out there who are more than willing to drop major bucks at clubs every weekend. Case in point? The list below, which ranks the highest grossing nightclubs in America. The top club, XS Nightclub in Vegas, takes the crown for the second year in a row. Their annual revenues jumped from $70 million, to $90 million, to $100+ million in under three years. The second highest earning spot, Marquee Vegas, was the #1 club two years ago, but has since dropped to #3. In case you were curious, sixteen of the top 100 clubs are in Las Vegas. Eight are in San Diego. Seven are in New York City. Seven are in Miami. Seven are in Dallas. Six are in Los Angeles. Four are in Chicago. The rest are scattered all over.
