Christmas is an extremely busy time of year for the likes of pubs, clubs and bars, as there are lots of celebrations and exciting things going on. For example, you may see lots of end-of-year work outings, or venues may be booked for Christmas parties. There are all kinds of ways for people to celebrate the festivities, but what’s important for venue owners, is to keep customers entertained, happy and wanting more.
Who doesn’t love a pub quiz?! If you own a pub, or a labour club, you could think about hosting quizzes throughout the week, or maybe have a Christmas quiz that takes place on a set day, every week in the lead up to Christmas. This is a great way to get people coming together and having fun around the festive period. Making this advertised and known to as many people as possible, will pull in customers and make the night a success for all.
There’s no better way for people to let their hair down, than to have a go on the karaoke. It provides fun, laughter and entertainment to all and appeals to a whole spectrum of people. Work nights out are one of the most common types of celebration around Christmas, and karaoke is certainly something that appeals to these people. If you have groups of company parties coming into your pub or club around December, this is a really good idea to keep them entertained and in the venue for longer.
Christmas parties can often be enjoyed in big groups of people, meaning there are a lot of people to keep entertained. There’s no doubt everyone will be having a good time and enjoying themselves, but having some games available is always a good idea to give them something else to do and prolong their time in your pub or club. Pool tables in particular keep people entertained for hours, but you could also hire something like a fruit machine, roulette or jukebox for a period of time in December as a little extra for all of your customers to enjoy.
Why it’s important to keep your customers entertained over Christmas
Venues like pubs and clubs generally make more of a profit over Christmas, as it’s the time when you tend to see the most custom and receive the most visitors. However, it’s up to you to make your venue more appealing so that your customers want to spend more time in there. This will ultimately result in more money for your business, as they will be buying more drinks, and if you hire any games machines, they will receive a significant amount of use opening up another revenue stream for the venue.
Christmas is the busiest time of year, and you want to beat your competitors and make sure that people are choosing your venue instead of theirs. Therefore, it’s always good to have exciting and different things going on during the weeks leading up to Christmas to attract more groups of people that are looking to wind down and celebrate.
