So if you're going to open up a bar, I think the first thing you should look at would be the location. Locality is key. Then you have to think about your staffing, depending on what kind of bar it's going to be. You need to look at bouncers, bartenders, shot girls -- that sort of thing. You need to get your licenses. You need your state licenses in order to sell alcohol. The next key factor would be your advertising. You want people to know that you're there. A good way to do that would be the radio, local newspaper, flyers. I feel the best is word of mouth would be the best type of advertisement that you can get for a bar. So if you want to get your bar going, up and running, your first thing you want to concentrate on is the location. You need to get your vendors as far as pool tables, dart machines, jukeboxes, various other, like, bar games and stuff. And the most important thing is do not forget to advertise.
