Opening a bar

    I think I'm going to open a bar as a semi-retirement plan. A little place, maybe 20 seats. I'll get behind the bar and make the drinks some nights, play the piano for the patrons, hopefully make enough to cover my booze. I think it will be a pretty chill gig, not like there's ever a lack of demand for alcohol.

    Advice: go work in a bar first. I think you will change your mind.

    Source: Me. I used to think I wanted to own a bar, then I worked in one.

    If you're in it for the atmosphere I'd say it's good but the liquor license and leasing for a bar with 20 seats isn't going to give you much profit. You probably won't run it all yourself anyway and hours for purely a drinking establishment are kind of annoying (won't see much business during the week, especially during the days unless you serve food, peak times will be weekend evenings when you probably want to do other things than managing a business)

    But if you have the money and just want to create a nice lil place to call your own and are happy if it makes anything or you don't lose too much, I say go for it

    Are you going to have a certain theme or a clever name for this establishment?

    How about "National Institute of Science"

    We'll make a drink called the "Neil Degrasse Tyson" which will be like a martini made with dry ice

    A lot people don't realize it, but with a bar comes a lot of liability. If someone gets drunk at your bar and kills someone, it's you they come to sue. If someone gets beat up at your bar, it's you they come to sue. If someone gets sick at your bar, it's you they come to sue. If a fire happens, and someone gets hurt, and they find the bar at fault, you get your life destroyed and lose your life savings. A bar is a lot of risk.

    Run a bar through your head instead.

    What's going to happen while working at a bar that's going to dissuade me from wanting to own a bar? Serious question.

    OP is an overweight and ugly hipster has-been wannabe who probably has shit taste in alcohol
    no one would want to drink at your bar except for people who were already drunk and are too stupid to realize what they stepped into

    People get drunk and puke and it needs to be cleaned up. People get drunk and pass out and piss all over themselves, needs cleaned up. Fights break out and shit gets tore up in your bar.

    Yea, that was me cleaning it up. AND the reason I don't want to own a bar because now I have to replace the carpet and hire security and for what? 10% margins? Nah.
