Alright shazbots. Here's how I would do it if I could afford the startup costs.
>purchase an otherwise unused warehouse/factory space from the 1800s.
>DIY the electrical and shit and make sure it's up to code
>set up office, bar, kitchen areas
>set up a vendor's area that people can pay like 50 bucks to setup in, curate that shit so that people are bringing good stuff into my club to draw a bit more of a crowd, standing policy of no corpcuck shit
>Simple menu, handheld bar foods, simple asian foods.
>simple bar setup, keep it sleek but low-life esque
>lighting and like pic related. maybe green instead of pink/purple
>no screens and shit that I can't put together with a small team.
>mostly cheap booze
>try to keep prices below 8 bucks a drink because fuck that.
>low vinyl seats in a gothic style
>3D printed stuff where possible
>keep decorations sparse if at all(my favorite place to go in this shithole city was literally a tiny dancefloor with a strobe and laser light above it and some fluorescent style blacklights on the walls)
>make sure the "stage" area can be configured for a DJ or for bands, maybe some modular shit on it.
>cater to industrial, glitch, outrun, metal, edm, drum and bass, occasionally goth or psychobilly acts
Anyone think I could make that turn a profit? It should be noted that the psychobilly scene here is pretty large, and the main place that used to be for punk and its various subgenres has started snubbing bands, also the few places left for decent psychobilly, metal, and hard rock acts have all kind of gone to shit and are terrible at advertising.
