Alcohol And Drinks In General Allowed In Auditoriums
Posted 23 May 2012 - 10:53 AM
The hospitality department that I work for is very keen to allow alcohol in but there are others working in the venue that are not so keen on this.
What are people's thoughts on this? Pro's vs. Con's, etc?

This post needs praising further, and by highlighting it I have done so.Don't mind admitting it was drink (not alcoholic) all over the keyboard.

I also echo the smelly drinks post above. A few weeks ago I sat behind someone who had a pint of bitter and every time he moved the cup it was in, I got a whiff of it and it was very strong. I spent the whole second half trying to cover my nose!

- Retail Revenue at the bar. Some small venues rely on this actually - especially if its a split on the door or a guarantee gone bad. Being able to serve longer / more drinks as people MAY buy in the interval AND another to go back in with. If its a comedian say Jim Davison, then they might even buy a couple of bottles to take back in. This can lead to higher income (Though i know a few people who would just throw the bottles AT him!)
- None wastage of drinks by the audience not having to drink fast
- Satisfied customers
- Reduced demand at the bar at any one time, as people won't be rushing to drink in 15 / 20 minutes
- Potential of damage to hardware if wine and beer are spilt / knocked over - seats, carpets etc. Coke is just as bad to be fair, but the wine colour really can stain badly and cant wash out as easily
- The pure smell upsetting other the other audience members
- Someone upsetting someone thats drunk and having it thrown over them (I've seen this done)
- Accidental spillage onto other patrons as walking past, cup getting knocked over
- Noise - Ice, clinking, muttering as can't find it etc
- Being knocked into the pit from the front row. This is especially bad with a curtained pit rail and not a solid board. Has the potential to really cause major damage to instruments. Also people tend to sit it on top of the rail. Really could be dangerous and risk assessments should cover this
- Potential of customers bring in their own drinks and "refilling" their cups - Can actually reduce the bar intake if this were to happen
- More chance of drunk customers as they can potentially just keep drinking
Hope that helps!
