Performance dancer in London, at a club where you can earn a side income – by Charles Turner
£300 per week
Amiel is the creator of the meetup group Young Professionals in London, and he makes a decent side income from partying every week.
He organises social meetups at the West End nightclubs in London, and simply takes a cut from everyone that comes in with him. How do I know this? I used to do the exact same thing during University.
Nightclub promoting is a lucrative and fun (but tiring) business. To give you a rough idea on how much Amiel is making, he gets about £4 – £8 ($6.3 – $12.62) per person, and gets about 50 people in per week (through Meetup alone). That’s about £300 ($473) per week for two nights work. Not bad.
Side income opportunities can be found everywhere once you start looking. You may not have known that you can make money from partying, but you can – I know some professional promoters on six-figure incomes.
£1000 per night
If you are a party animal and do look into this, then you should also consider being a waiter. As with any global city, London has a pocket of clubs that the extremely wealthy party at. I’ve worked at a few of them. The minimum spend per night, per table is about £2000, plus a 10% service charge… To the waiter. Although this doesn’t happen every time, sometimes the waiter can be serving two or three tables and can earn over £1000 in one night.
These jobs are best suited towards new graduates fresh into low-paying jobs. Or, for entrepreneurs and startups in need of some quick cash. The hours are exhausting and the nightclub rules intolerable, but a side income is meant to be for a purpose, so here’s a method that people are doing right now.
