Here's what has shocked me about one of our local nightclubs. I know reputation plays a big part in the nightclubs success. However, some of the clubs still have their reputations from years past. If a Nightclub is marked an unsafe place to go years ago, it is still being used against them today as being a bad place to be. Doesn't matter how much work the owner, new owner or new management has put into the establishment to make it a nice, safe place for their customers, It is still causing a financial burden on their establishments.
Let's talk about Trout's Nightclub. Rockwell! The man who never gives up. The man who goes beyond to have a Safe Nightclub for every adult in Bakersfield over 21 to enjoy. Great Music 7 days a week on one stage and karaoke 6 nights a week on the opposite stage. He has extended the building so you can enjoy The Bakersfield Sound and reminisce about The Blackboard Stages. The remodeling has been going on for a long time and even though he has finished the biggest part of Trout's Nightclub and The Blackboard Stages, Rockwell keeps on trucking bringing new memorabilia to the Club for you and I and all who is interested to enjoy!
I'm not saying the outcome is bad, but, what I am saying is that it should be a lot better, I don't understand it. The Bands are good, The karaoke sound equipment is superb. The music selection is astonishingly huge. There are two big dance floors to dance on. Why is it so hard to get people to come into this establishment? Their is a bouncer every night of the week. 3 Bouncers on the weekends. I have been to many places in Bakersfield and all of them have had big bar fights by the end of the night. I have yet to see a bar fight at Trout's. So Despite the area, they have a Great, Wonderful Establishment to enjoy a perfect evening of fun listening to live bands, dancing and singing karaoke. What better way is there to spend an evening out? Rockwell has made this possible.
So the next time someone tells you they don't want to go to a certain establishment for karaoke or any other event because of a past reputation, don't you think you owe it to yourself and the current owner to check out what they have to offer? If you haven't been at Trout's for a few years, stop by and take a look at what Rockwell has done. You will be completely surprised and will make this a new place to go and have fun.
