Spirits on Bourbon Featured at Scaling New Heights Conference

Spirits on a Bourbon was proud to be featured at the 2016 Scaling New Heights Convention  held at the beautiful Caribbean resort, Atlantis, situated on Paradise Island in the tropical Bahamas.    
Spirits on Bourbon, represented by owners Brad Bohannan and Steve Smith , worked with Scaling New Heights to film a ten part Docu-Series called Tech Make Over. “We were able to work with the best in the business and receive some of the latest technology. This new technology has given us a competitive advantage over every other bar on Bourbon Street and increased profits 20 percent. We feel lucky to have been chosen to participate,” said Brad Bohannan to the packed audience.   
The series was filmed last December at Spirits on Bourbon. “We have had some growing pains in learning the new technology but at the end it all paid off,” said Steve Smith. He continued, “Not only have we received the latest technology, but we have formed some great partnerships with innovative companies like ‘When I Work‘  

 which will last far beyond the show.”
Joe Woodard reminded the audience that the latest technology wasn’t just about convenience, but about inspiring us to push the envelope even further.  We at Spirits on Bourbon will certainly be taking his advise.

Turtle Bay was honored to be featured #1 for New Orleans Top Late Night Spot for Food in the USA Today’s Top 10 Spots. With all the great fine dinning in New Orleans, oftentimes we get overlooked when it comes to food. We have worked really hard to not just provide great food, but to provide great food 24 hours a day. “To have respectable publications like PMQ and USA TODAY show us so much love we feel like the hard work is paying off,” said Brad Bohannan.

Get The Most Out Of Your Advertising Space.

Doesn’t if feel great when a beer or liquor vendor gives you a great big shiny neon to place in your bar? Is it because the vendor really likes us? Is it that OUR bar is extra special?
Sadly, no. They choose to spend advertising dollars where the drinkers are likely to be…in a bar. The question is, why aren’t we?
Advertising is incredibly expensive. When you have a customer in your bar and you don’t advertise your specialty drink, merchandise of most profitable food item, then you are missing a golden opportunity. Particularly since these items have a higher profit margin. Your target market is, after all, already sitting in a bar stool right in front of you. 
So get the most out of the space and staff right in front of you. If you can’t afford a custom neon then signage of your specialty cocktail in vibrant colors can be placed on the walls or tabletops instead. Gender based advertising on bathroom doors can be funny and eye catching yet pushing your own brand. Have your staff advertise your merchandise or your most profitable food item by simply asking the customer if they are interested (“Have you tasted our ribeye? It’s fantastic!). That brief exchange is like a commercial the customer can’t avoid. 
Start building your brand. Don’t underestimate the power of your wall space. Highlight YOUR products and YOUR brand just as major brands have done in our bars for years!
