36 March 2014 Club Bulletin www.EDpublications.com B ig Al's, located in Peoria, Illinois, has set the standard when it comes to an adult venue's "powder room." Al's boasts an employee lounge featuring a hair salon, pedicure area, private dressing room for feature entertainers, massage area and full showers, and additional restrooms complete with bathroom attendants. This might, at first glance, seem a bit excessive, but the response Al's has received since the renovation proves otherwise—and has even earned them the reputation of having the "nicest and cleanest restrooms in the city." And guess which adult nightclub frequenters are most drawn to nice and clean restrooms? The ones who depend on it the most—the entertainers. ED recently spoke with Nikki Zuccarini, the Director of Marketing for Big Al's, to get their take on why they decided to give their powder room a makeover, and how it has affected their guests' and entertainers' overall perception of the club. ED: How has having separate, and highly accommodating, facilities for entertainers affected their decision to perform in your club? ZUCCARINI: When a tour is given to a new entertainer, the reaction is always positive. Al [Zuccarini, the club's owner] takes presentation and customer service—even with our employees/entertainers—very seriously. We take pride in our family-owned establishment and make sure our staff has a safe and clean environment. ED: What additional benefits have you seen from having separate facilities for both entertainers and patrons? ZUCCARINI: We provide multiple restrooms for our entertainers and employees. We have a very spacious employee lounge downstairs that is complete with a hair salon, pedicure area, private dressing room for feature entertainers, both men's and women's restrooms with full showers, in-house massage area and beautiful, custom- made sectional couches. Our entertainers have a nice clean restroom available in the dressing room. Of course, our entertainers may use our state-of-the- art restrooms that are available to our guests as well. We provide both the men's and women's restrooms with a friendly bathroom attendant who hands out towels and other amenities. Anything a customer needs, our attendants Michael and Chelsea have it! The entertainers enjoy the privacy of having their own restroom, but they also like having the option to be pampered by the bathroom attendants in the restrooms that are located in the main room of the club. I personally have encountered many guests who have said that we "have the nicest and cleanest restrooms in the city." Sometimes I think this part of the club gets dismissed, but we at World Famous Big Al's are sure proud of ours! For more information, please visit worldfamousbigals.com.
