Nightclub owners' salaries range from $24,000 to $150,000 or more per year. Location, club type and whether the club is independent or part of a franchise also affect owner salaries.
A career as a nightclub owner has the lure of glamour, fame and wealth. Nightclub owners have long or irregular hours and manage day-to-day operations and maintenance. Owners' responsibilities include hiring and managing staff, booking entertainment, marketing and ensuring compliance with local laws.
Preparing for a nightclub owners' career can be as simple as on-the-job training and rising through the ranks. Alternatively, taking college courses in business administration or entrepreneurship are good ways to prepare for this career.
