About the Sector

The pubs, bars, and nightclubs sector is vibrant and lively and includes a variety of businesses, such as cocktail lounges, karaoke, live music venues, taverns and cabarets. These businesses typically serve alcoholic beverages and food and may also provide entertainment and dance facilities.

If your business offers significant food services, it may be categorized under food and beverage instead. We recommend taking a look at the sector profile for food and beverage services as well, since there is considerable overlap between these two profiles.
