Any new business owner has to wrestle with insurance, but not all commercial insurance programs are the same. For nightclub owners in particular, standard commercial insurance doesn’t provide strong coverage for the risks their club could face. Nightclub insurance programs are designed with the coverage options needed.
Liability insurance options are available, as with any commercial insurance, to provide legal and financial aid in case of accidental harm. For nightclubs, liquor and assault and battery are cases that need special coverage, as most insurance plans only have limited coverage for these. Drinking is common in nightclubs, and sometimes intoxicated patrons can inadvertently get hurt or start fights. You’ll also want coverage for your bouncer, who could get injured on the job.
You’ll also want insurance for the property itself, as well as any assets. Again, this is typical for business owners, but nightclub owners especially want coverage for assets like lighting and sound systems or the food and drinks served in the club. If your club hosts concerts or other events, protecting the equipment used then is also vital.
Nightclub insurance programs are not too different from standard commercial insurance, but where they differ is what’s truly important for a club owner. Where other insurance plans will leave you vulnerable, this insurance will have your back.
