Here are the top 10 cities in the nation based on this list:

1. Las Vegas = 20 clubs
2. L.A. = 14 clubs
3. New York = 13 clubs
4. Miami = 12 clubs
5. Chicago = 5 clubs
6. San Diego = 4 clubs
7. D.C. = 3 clubs
7. Dallas = 3 clubs
9. Atlanta = 2 clubs
9. Atlantic City = 2 clubs
9. Phoenix Az = 2 clubs



This list ranked clubs by revenue generated. I was surprised to not see any clubs from Boston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, or Houston.

That might mean that those cities have lower average drink prices, which is a good thing IMO. They might also have smaller clubs.

In general revenues are driven by price point and size. Obviously $15 drinks are going to generate more revenue than $5 drinks.

Revenue says nothing about quality.

I think this just goes off popularity which can be reflected in revenue. Nobody is going to pay for a subpar club or crowd. Something is driving people to frequent these places on this list.

I stand by my previous statement. At least in New York, I know that the places listed are some of the least interesting clubs/bars in the city.

Yeah but a club at the Foxwood casino in Connecticut has the highest revenue in New England and the fifth highest on the east coast. Is that really the place to be?
