Is your venue staying current when it comes to nightlife? Taking a few minutes out of your day to scan industry headlines, just as you would a local newspaper or your favorite online publication, can only benefit your business and find it new opportunities for both growth and prestige.

We've compiled the four best blogs to remain up-to-date on the latest news, trends, and discussions that are taking over, along with links to a few of their top recent posts. Prepare to get inspired!


4. Howl at the Moon

The name itself may ring a bell, as Howl at the Moon is a chain of live music venues. Unbeknownst to some, though, it also stays up-to-date with a blog on its website. We like it because of its range of topics including holidays and drink recipes, in addition to city-specific posts geared towards its many locations across the U.S.


3. Buzztime

As the name suggests, this is a Buzzfeed-style blog site. We particularly enjoy its balance of playful posts with more informative ones that use proven data and expert opinions to back up its claims. Several new stories are produced weekly, each with a fun twist to keep you coming back for more.
