    The Only Resource A Bar Owner Will Need

    I found the format of this book to be very sturdy. The hard cover and strong binding almost guarantee this book will have a nice long life. The larger size of the book allows for larger print inside, which I found much easier to read than many smaller format items. The text itself is very detailed. In a step-by-step fashion, the authors guide prospective bar, tavern or night club owners through the process of opening a successful business. With relatively short chapters ¿ full of bulleted, numbered lists ¿ this title will be a great resource in those moments when a bar owner needs to find something in a hurry. This title is all inclusive, as it covers subjects from money matters to food preparation and storage. If you can only buy one book about opening a tavern or bar, this is one you should consider. Chapter 18 will surely be a popular chapter, reviewed again and again by club owners. Tables giving an overview of all the laws are included. Each of the states are put in order alphabetically, including information on age of service, maximum alcohol per drink, happy hour laws, and server training. Although not a book that is necessary for the general population, this book definitely deserves a spot on the bar, tavern and night club owners¿ shelves.
