Why the Hospitality Industry?

“In general Hospitality Insurance Agency likes insuring everything ‘hospitality’: adult clubs, nightclubs, restaurants and bars. We specifically like insuring nightclubs because we understand the nature of the beast and have positioned ourselves with our expertise and markets to be able to offer these clubs the coverages that they need to protect their business, employees and, most importantly, their largest asset: their clients. We find that nightclub owners are very astute business executives and have great organizational structures, which makes working with them that much easier.”


What Insurance Areas Do Clubs Overlook?

“Right now, their emphasis needs to be on assault/battery and liquor liability, as all the clubs are getting killed with claims. This has caused a huge trickledown effect throughout the hospitality insurance marketplace, causing premiums to increase for all hospitality related establishments. We have many products and solutions to help combat/offset these increases.”
