im probaly the least qualified to tell you about business or nightclubs since im only 18 and dont even have an associates
any kind of business, you are going to need alot of foresight, planning, and information.
always think things 5 steps ahead.
and advertising, get some really good promoters. Better yet, do it with some of your friends. Club promoter is just as fun as being in the vip except you can choose which sexy ladies to invite to your club. try getting on tv. there are alot of people who are looking for something to do at night. modern club, im guessing start up is 200,000-400,000. up to 1-2 million if its a high class nightclub like on the vegas strip
and i realllllly really suggest moving to a big city suburb preferrably one with a college nearby. If you really want to get dirty, go to the college and crash every party you can find. and if your nightclub is near the college and all the partys are getting crashed, good chance you will get more customers. but, this is just an idea i got 10 seconds ago. lol. might work, might not. preferably do it behind the scenes so the kids dont know its you whos doing it. if they find out, you just shot yourself in the foot big time
bottom line advice from me is focus on having a comfortable club (like that other guy said if you attract the women, they will attract the men), very good marketing, at least 1 investor, im not sure how many you really would need, and a good location
