Movie Tavern is the first new business to open in Wisconsin in over a year since Marcus Corp.’s purchase of the then New Orleans-based Video Tavern chain of bars. While I was visiting Wisconsin last summer, I had the opportunity to tour the New Orleans Video in Madison, and to speak with several owners/operators of the now-shuttered “vodka bar” that once stood in the former speakeasy. The owners/operators were very gracious and quite helpful, giving me many great tips on how to have a successful business in this state. While the Video was a great success, it is unfortunate that the owners/operators cut down the New Orleans style bar feel, and replaced it with a bar for “entertainment,” as their words suggested. If you are considering opening a New Orleans themed bar, please consider all this advice.
If you have a themed bar or restaurant, then you need to plan out your menu, or your “culinary deluxe” if you will. When planning your beverage offerings, you need to offer a wide variety of specialty drinks, wine, mixed drinks, wines, prosecco, shots, mixed dines, snacks and more. You also need to provide non-alcoholic beverages for those who don’t drink alcohol, or to-go items. A New Orleans themed movie tavern menu can include Creole chicken nuggets with BBQ sauce, Louisiana crawfish salad, shrimp gumbo, Creole pork jowls, and more.
One idea for an awesome New Orleans themed movie tavern is to create a giant screen television for patrons to enjoy their movie experience in, and dine at one of the many street cafes in the neighborhood. One idea would be to set up one of the street cafes on Brookfield Square’s Prospect Street, where many movie showings take place, and feature a giant screen TV for customers to enjoy their favorite movies. There are many businesses that rent out large screens, and you could make money renting one or two for the summer months. It would take up a lot of counter space at one of the bars in the area, but it could be great business for you. Of course, when the weather turns cold, it would be even better to use that space for another purpose, and you would be able to continue making your living while entertaining customers.
Another idea for your New Orleans movie tavern would be to incorporate the theme of laser projection technology into your restaurant. One way to do this would be to have recliner seating in the dining area, and purchase tickets from your customers, who would then put their hand on a special light emitted by the projection device, which would project the image of the movie onto the large screen television for everyone to enjoy. You could also purchase tickets for the showings of the shows in town. Again, you would purchase tickets from the customers, and then sell them back to the theaters for a profit.
In addition to serving food and drink, your New Orleans movie tavern could also offer an on-site restaurant. For example, you could purchase tickets, and then rent a commercial kitchen and cook all of the food yourself. You could make everything from scratch, including the drinks and the food, and you could guarantee a very loyal customer base by offering special deals and promotions to people who buy your food and drinks. In addition to providing an excellent food and drink service, you could also promote your restaurant through an on-site loyalty program.
To implement an on-site restaurant, you would need to purchase tickets from your customers, and then rent a commercial kitchen and cook all of the food yourself. You would not want to hire someone just to cook the food, since that person could end up taking the profits you make and not giving you any of the profits. You could choose to let someone else take care of all of the advertising and the loyalty program, and you would be able to take a significant cut of the money made by selling tickets and using the loyalty program. Of course, if people like the food and drinks at your New Orleans movie tavern so much, they will want to come back again – and this is where the restaurant manager comes into play. You need to keep track of your customer base in order to make sure that you always have enough food and drinks to serve your customers.
In addition to providing great food and drink service, you can also use your movie theater as a venue for a business. For example, you can set up a concession stand, selling sodas, popcorn, gumbo, donuts, and any other snacks that your customers will want. Not only will the customers be returning to your New Orleans movie theater, but they will also likely bring friends with them, making your concession stand a popular place to hang out.
As long as you keep your food and drinks coming at a decent rate, you should do very well with brookfield restaurants. However, before you open one of your own brookfield restaurants, you may want to consider checking into the possibility of renting a building in New Orleans. By doing this, you will be able to rent a building in an area that is currently in development. This will allow you to keep costs down while you wait for the property to be completed, allowing you to have more time to focus on your business. Your experience in New Orleans may be everything you need to open a successful brookfield restaurant.
