San Diego’s premier dining and lounge experience
The Gas Light District...
In the heart of Downtown San Diego, there is a bustling nightlife and social
scene that is defying the state of the economy. In the heart of this bustling
urban centre, an opportunity to create the latest, trendy hotspot awaits. Our
objective is to create the premier dining and club experience in San Diego
by bringing class, culture and an energized experience to our patrons.
Our team will convert a 15,000 sq. ft. space in the heart of the Gas Lamp
District, into San Diego’s newest hotspot. The upstairs section of the open
space will be the conservative -- yet sultry -- up-scale restaurant, drawing
the elite of the area’s community for an exclusively designed dining experience. The space
downstairs will be the VIP dining, lounge & bar experience that will adjoin the nightclub next door.
Dinner guests will be able to reserve tables & take part in the night club experience as part of the
adjoined business experience.
The Restaurant will be an extraordinary, beautiful, Japanese restaurant serving Robata, a form of
Japanese tapas, traditional sushi, and a unique variety of Japanese cuisine. There will be a Robata and
sushi bar, with spectacular patio dining in the heart of Downtown San Diego.

Creating the Brand & Marketing
Product Branding and Marketing are the lifeblood of any restaurant and/or nightclub business. In
order to draw the expected 5,000+ customers per week, we must design innovative ways to promote
the business, increase the level of awareness about the nightspot within the target markets, and
reach new customers while keeping the regulars.
Some of the most common marketing strategies employed by our Branding and Strategic Marketing
Advertising & Promotions.
Our management team uses advertising to promote their business. Radio advertising has proven to
be a potent tool for bringing customers to nightclubs. However, because of our intimate aﬃliation
with A-List celebrities and athletes, the Local and National tabloids are an innovative method of
cross-branding with TV personalities to draw massive attention to our venture.
Brand awareness can also be enhanced with promotional methods such as Twitter, MySpace and
Facebook when promoted by celebrity personalities directly to their fan-base and peer groups.
Our management team has leveraged decades of relationships in the entertainment industry as well
as personal relationships as an invaluable investment that, when coupled with a signiﬁcant portion of
the marketing budget, is guaranteed to not only make a big splash for the opening event, but in
essence, completely brand the endeavor as the Premier venue in the San Diego Area. The public
relations activity as well as advertising work towards creating excitement about the new night spot
will be a unique and multi-faceted venture. Our relationships with Clear Channel communications
and the number One Radio stations in Southern California will give a massive push for our contests
and events giving away VIP passes to our Celebrity Studded Grand Openings and Premier events
create awareness about the nightclub.
Club events organized by themes have become essential marketing tool for nightclub facilities.
Events typically bring up the entertainment factor in the club a notch, more so if the event features
celebrities. Because of the national attention our celebrity aﬃliates bring to the venture, our
nightclub can host large-scale, indoor/outdoor events, frequent concert-style shows, product release
Because of aﬃliated business ventures, our Branding and Strategic marketing teams have leveraged
relationships with Professional Sports Franchises, Record Labels, Radio Stations and TV
Personalities. These relationships in turn generate peripheral marketing buzz on their own and in
turn generate more publicity, driving status of access no all new heights.
Word of mouth.
The hip factor, quality of our service, exclusivity and the overall reputation of this nightclub will fuel
positive word of mouth. Coupled with other marketing eﬀorts, such as Celebrity Twitter accounts
and MySpace, word of mouth is THE essential crowd drawer in our niche of the nightclub business.
For example, people are more willing to check out a club highly recommended by their friends,
peers, or relatives, more so if word spreads around that the club is where the hottest celebrities hang
out at night.
A company’s web site is coming to be an integral element in nightclub marketing. Web sites can be
an eﬀective tool for raising awareness, catching attention and letting everyone who was not able to
attend know just what is being missed by not being in the mix.
The Target Market – Research
San Diego has an exceptionally well insulated economy that has weathered the storm of our nations
economy far better than most communities. With several exclusive, oceanside communities
spanning the western span of the County, the demographics speak for themselves. San Diego is
experiencing an increase in median income, property values and net worth. With an average age of
35, this community is completely primed to host THE newest Southern California premier location
for entertainment, ﬁne dining and special events.
