The Nightlife Hospitality Club (NLHC) is an academic club in Cornell's School of Hotel Administration. NLHC's mission is to cultivate an understanding of the nightlife industry and the relevance of nightclubs, bars, and casinos as important revenue streams for hospitality companies. NLHC's educational general body meetings broaden club members' knowledge of nightlife hospitality, which includes the operational, design, ownership, and managerial aspects of premium nightclubs, casinos, and bars. The NLHC serves as a conduit between executives in the industry and students. The club sponsors charity events, hosts guest speakers, and organizes nightlife venue tours. In addition, the NLHC provides students with the tools and background necessary to pursue leadership roles in the industry of nightlife hospitality.
One of the utmost accomplishments of the NLHC, has been creating a conduit between leaders of the industry and the students and faculty of Cornell.
The club has sponsored guest speakers to enrich the learning process of its members and the Cornell community. These guest speakers include Andrew Goldberg (Partner and Director of Marketing for Strategic Hospitality/TAO Group), Mark Birnbaum (Co-Founder of EMM Group), and Scott Gerber (Principal and CEO of Gerber Group). The Nightlife Hospitality Club has pioneered a new path to learning about a segment of the hospitality industry which has become a significant stream of revenue for many leading hospitality companies in the past several years and potential future.
To educate club members regarding the operations, developments, and structures of the nightlife industry through specific themed educational presentations in general body meetings.
Other goals of the club are as follows:
To expose club members to internship opportunities in the nightlife industry through the use of Cornell’s alumni network and through interactions with leaders from the industry.
To give back to the community through planned charity events. These events will be thought out in the general body meetings and will provide the Cornell community with a unique experience while raising money for an agreed upon charity.
To build relationships among club members with similar interests through social media group integration, which will provide a forum for open discussion outside of the general body meetings.
