And Nightclub Hall of Fame President Ryan Dahlstrom.
Las Vegas Weekly Nightclub Hall of Fame Ryan Dahlstrom Article – So it should stand to reason that nightlife would have one as well. But up until recently, there wasn’t an official hall of fame to honor the national nightclub and bar scene, which generates an estimated $20 billion annually—an accomplishment not lost on Ryan Dahlstrom, a longtime club operator/manager and consultant. The then-director of nightlife for Nightclub & Bar Media (which produces the annual Nightclub & Bar Show) sought to acknowledge not the venues themselves, but the industry’s success stories and ladder-climbers, especially those thriving in Las Vegas’ lucrative scene.
“I think they’re under-recognized,” he says. “Some are worried about their brand and don’t promote themselves … but these guys have changed our lives and others’ lives so much, they deserve the respect and to be celebrated.”
Dahlstrom nabbed and sat on an unregistered URL early on; eventually reached out to operations/marketing specialist (and Krave colleague) Preston Rideout, who had been formerly associated with several Angel Management Group locations; and left his day job with Nightclub & Bar. In October, Dahlstrom and Rideout—in the roles of president and vice president, respectively—officially announced the Nightclub Hall of Fame.
