Entertainment Venue Security Services

The goal of most bars, taverns, lounges and nightclubs is to provide a hospitable gathering place where patrons can have a good time, often by listening to or watching entertainment, and/or dancing, while purchasing and consuming the establishment's primary product — alcoholic beverages.

In 99% of the nightclubs out there, bouncers are simply normal employees, not actual "security personnel" (who require special training and permits). This means that the authority of a bouncer is the same as any ordinary citizen. Bouncers have no special right to physically eject a customer who becomes drunk or obnoxious, any more than a waiter at a cafe does.

Nightclub Security, despite what you may have seen in the movies, do not have a blank check to beat up people they don't like. It is a common misconception that "bouncers" have some kind of special right to physically remove people from the premises of a club, and to use choke holds and the like for people who refuse to leave. This is completely false.

Having in-house Bouncers at your establishment's risks (in dollars) for criminal (assault and battery) acts by your Bouncers also Bouncers getting hurt on the job, can be eliminated by hiring Reliance Security Services.
