What Types of Insurance Do Bars and Nightclubs Need?
Bars and nightclubs require basic insurance policies that any other business would need. However, the combination of these coverages can be a bit confusing because most other businesses wouldn’t buy all those policies at once.
Generally, bars and nightclubs need all these coverages:
- Business owner’s policy
- Workers’ comp
- General liability coverage
- Commercial auto
- Liquor liability
- Commercial property
- Business income or interruption
- Assault and battery
Specialty Insurance for Bars and Nightclubs
Now that you see what it takes to insure your nightlife venue, you must consider its location. Remember, Florida offers thousands of miles of coastline that you can use to open a bar, nightclub, concert venue, and more. As a result, you need custom coverage because you’re on the water, dealing with boats, and experience several different exposures at once.
When you reach out to our team, let us know if you must insure:
- Rental equipment, etc
Because you’re on the water, you run the risk of flooding more than most spaces. Damage to docks and piers makes the space that much more expensive to maintain. Marinas involve boat traffic, and piers may need to be shored up after major storms.
If you haven’t purchased coverage and protected your business from these exposures, you may be forced to pay for repairs or replacements out-of-pocket.
Plus, water makes the bar or nightclub that much more dangerous, turning simple slips and falls into major liability claims, simple boat accidents into massive incidents, etc. Fires and explosions may also occur given the nature of certain piers, marinas, and docks and how they store industrial gases or fuels.
