Drinkers demand the return of the jukebox
If you’re looking at ways you can enhance your bar or pub, why not consider installing a jukebox? Journalist David Wondrich from the Daily Beast has them on his wish list for 2017, alongside korn (grain spirit), Canadian grain whisky, Cordial Médoc and Italian bar snacks.
He wrote: “I love a good jukebox more than anything else a bar has to offer. If there were a watering hole that had only swill beer, not even very cold, and butterscotch schnapps, but had a working Rock-Ola with the 45 of Ripple’s 1973 classic, “I Don’t Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky,” I would do all my drinking there.”
Wondrich isn’t the only one wishing for a jukebox in 2017, they’ve been growing in popularity over recent years and during the last quarter, they’ve become must-haves in venues of all sizes. If you want to appeal to as wide a spectrum of punters as possible why not consider having one? You can choose to hire or to buy, the decision is yours.
Not only will having a jukebox inject some fun (especially when a classic comes on and people sing along) but it can boost your takings too. It won’t be on all the time which means that it won’t irritate those looking to just enjoy a quiet drink either.
If you want to succeed in 2017, there are other ways you can stand out from your competitors:
- Themed nights
- An exciting food offering – whether it’s a full menu or just interesting bar snacks.
- A craft beer weekend – it’ll take a lot of organising but could be a huge event.
- Pool table competitions – to hire or buy pool tables, click here >
- Battle of the bands competition – Showcase local talent on a traditionally quiet night in the week.
