Answer

 

As club owner what benefits would BouncerOnline have to offer me?

We realize that owning and running a nightclub or bar is hard work and could take up a lot of your time.  We like to think the word "Security" means insurance, physical insurance to protect your liability.  BouncerOnline offers a quick guide of security procedures and information based on general security principles that you can utilize right away.  BouncerOnline is also there to quickly have answers to your security problems.

What makes BouncerOnline an authority on nightclub security?

We may know a lot about nightclub security, but we really do not consider ourselves to be an authority on nightclub security when there are many sources out there that offer good information as well.  However, we do gather up those sources of information that in fact have proven to work and resource that information out to you.  We provide up-to-date news and information that will assist in nightclub security from around the world to your finger tips.

Wouldn't club owners know more about the security of their club then an outside entity?

Yes, and they should know more about the security of their club.  However, because each situation is or can be unique it's possible that we could customize the information that we provide in a way that will work for their particular venue.

Wouldn't big burly people always make a better candidate as a Bouncer?

Yes, and no.  We like the protection of a big burly Bouncer just as the next guy.  But when a patron sees a big burly Bouncer their immediate thoughts are negative and physical.  Patrons are humans and should be treat as one.  BouncerOnline believes that nightclub security has changed over the years because the patrons demands it to.  Take a look at our Bouncer News articles on the homepage, it's not a pretty sight.  But if we can assist in providing your venue with a trained security staff utilizing Good Customer Service over intimidation then The Art of Nightclub Security has been achieved.

What makes BouncerOnline different from those other websites, DVD's or books that claim to train Bouncers?

A great deal of research was conducted just before BouncerOnline hit the Internet.  It was determined that many nightclubs were facing lawsuits, losing their liquor licenses and closing up for good.  The main reasons were the lack of security, security procedures and the lack of or no security training.  We were not able to locate one website, DVD or book in regards to nightclub security that also mentions "Customer Service."

Update: While the above was written in 2003, there have since been a few websites, DVD's and books who now share our mission to improve nightclub security.  However the ones we highly recommend our listed on our Resource Links pages.

What makes BounB

Why do some club owners and Bouncers feel that they do not need training to handle the undesirable patrons?

Lack of being serious about the security of their club and their job.  Bouncers are not given a high score on intelligence to begin with.  This gives the impression that we are not worth training or trainable.  This needs to change.  This will change.

Update:  This has changed.  While the above was written in 2003, we're just going to go ahead and toot our own horn and say that BouncerOnline is a-head-of-the-times.  Following the European states United States are now mandating the training and certification of all nightclub security personnel.  Bouncers who are working without a license will be fine and/or imprisoned along with the club owner.  Check here to see if your state has started its mandating.

Why do Bouncers put on the tough guy attitude?

We like to think that life isn't that bad.  But mostly it's a display of intimidation.  Intimidating patrons to do something leads to confrontations and not handling a situation intelligently may be the best way that the tough guy can think that he is in control. The key is manage not control.  Being a Bouncer is fun and easy work.  It's the one's with the intimidating attitudes that find it hard to do.

Is it possible to have a career as a Bouncer?

It depends on your lifestyle.  Some people are happy just being a security guard at a bank, others are happier being a police officer.  Becoming a successful Bouncer will definitely put you in the mind set of the security and law enforcement field.  You may find yourself meeting a lot of different patrons while working as a bouncer who have different careers themselves.  If the nightclub industry has nothing to offer you, befriending a patron could help open up other doors for you.

I see and hear about Bouncers always getting into fights.  Is that the only thing they're good for?

Many nightclubs are being forced to change the way that their security staff operates.  Unfortunately there are still so-called Bouncers out there who think that getting into fights is all we do.  A Bouncer's responsibility has changed over the years and many club owners have yet to see that change withn their own venue.  On the other hand, it's good to say that some club owners do realize that there is more to a Bouncer then mass and muscles.
