Let’s start with the most basic of bar events: Live Music and Open Mic Nights.
Your bar has it…so does every other bar in town. We’re not suggesting you ditch live music altogether, but why not mix it up? Turn your customers into performers with the open mic services that put a twist on a traditional open mic night.
A twist on the traditional comedy open mic with nights like: Who can tell the best “Dad” joke? which we find is a great success for Father’s Day. No need to wait for a special occasion, add an open mic comedy night to your list of bar entertainment ideas right now.
Just Say the Word
The laughs will continue with this variation on our “Just Say the Word” open mic night. When we host this version of an open mic night we require singers to swap in a different term like “beer” for common words like “love.” (What the world needs now, is beer…sweet beer.)
Traditional Competitive Open Mic
For best results, bar entertainment ideas run best on a recurring and consistent basis. That way, you’ll enjoy steady foot and food traffic. One of the best ways to bring in big groups on repeat? Host a traditional weekly competitive open mic night. Here’s how it works: at the first event we ask a local musician, bar owner or an esteemed regular to be the judge. He or she will select the best performer of the night, who will then be the judge at the next event…and so on. Sweeten the deal on these open mic nights by throwing in a $20 bar tab to the winning performer.
