About Us

Bar Business Magazine is the premier publication, in print and online, for owners and operators in the nightlife and hospitality industry. Since 2008, Bar Business has been providing owners, operators, and managers the opportunity to find out what is going on in the nightlife industry, and more importantly, how to benefit from it all and better their own business. We are the “How-to” resource for the nightlife industry, with nearly 100,000 qualified readers nationwide.

Helmed by Editor Ashley Bray and Publisher Gary Lynch, each issue of Bar Business Magazine includes the publication’s signature “How-to” columns, with detailed, step-by-step instructions on various ways to improve your business, be it physically through aesthetic alterations, philosophically through managerial practices, or economically through marketing strategies.

We offer feature articles on general interest trends for the modern nightclub and bar owner or manager, while our editorial departments focus on new beverages and products, industry legislation and news, and on-premise music innovations. In each issue, we spotlight one owner or manager you need to know about, we examine one beverage category in-depth, and we provide readers with a marketing calendar of various events, holidays, and occasions that can help attract patrons each month.

We’re here to help the American drinking establishment—as well as the companies and products that make them run—always be profitable and proliferating.
