1. GTA Online Best Nightclub Location 2023

With all the criteria noted above, we would like to show you the top picks for GTA 5 best nightclub to buy. They all have pros and cons as we mentioned before, so do take some time to find one that suits your needs.

West Vinewood Nightclub

  • Price: $1,700,000

While West Vinewood is the most expensive Nightclub, its location is perfect. There are a couple of good businesses that players can purchase nearby, and it is also very close to the popular Diamond Casino & Resort.

West Vinewood is great for sell missions, as it allows access to the most relevant roads in GTA Online. Most of the other potential Nightclubs are too far south, which forces players to waste more time traveling to the northern side of the map.

Downtown Vinewood Nightclub

  • Price: $1,670,000

Downtown Vinewood

Downtown Vinewood is right next to West Vinewood and allow better access to the Diamond Casino, in exchange for a slightly longer drive to the other destinations.

Overall these two locations are mostly exchangeable - it depends on your personal preferences.

Elysian Island

  • Price: $1,080,000
F7319 16771981193954 1920
Being right next to the sea, its appearance is not that bad.

The main reason to purchase the Nightclub on Elysian Island is its lower price. If you don't play very much and doesn't want to waste time grinding, buying this particular place is a good idea. However, there isn't much value here apart from its low price. Nothing valuable is in this area, with the most notable property being the garage used in Simeon's Export Requests. Additionally, traveling here can be an issue.

However, players can just set their spawn here to make it somewhat more convenient.

Strawberry Nightclub

  • Price: $1,525,000
The Strawberry Nightclub is located in the city center

Strawberry is another solid Nightclub location in GTA Online. Its location is fairly favorable for general commuting, especially if you want to do Popularity and Sell missions. The nearby highway is a straightforward route to get out of the city.

The main reason to choose Strawberry over Vinewood is the locations of your other businesses.

LSIA Nightclub

  • Price: $1,135,000

Even if you don't have a Hangar in this area, you can still access several aircraft quickly.

Conveniently located near the Los Santos International Airport, this is the perfect location for you to get easy access to your hangars as well as the Pegasus vehicles. As one of the southern clubs, it is harder to run supply to this area and doing missions are challenging.

Thus, this spot can be decent for beginners who need to save money and might lack a personal helicopter or plane.

2. GTA Online Nightclub Income Sources

Legal Income

After successfully setting up a nightclub, it will start to generate income. Depending on the club's popularity, you will make from $100 to $10,000 per day (48 minutes in real-time).

Nightclub Popularity

There's a meter that measures your nightclub's popularity meter. It will decay steadily overtime at a rate of 5% per in-game day. To increase the stat, the owner must perform side missions, which are generally short and easy. Swapping DJs also increase the club's popularity. And every GTA$ 10,000 spent on marketing equals 10% popularity. Therefore, one could "buy" 100% popularity with GTA$ 100,000.

Illegal Income

This income comes from goods sold from the nightclub warehouse. It's only available in public sessions. You can sell an assortment of illegal items and make a fortune here, but the business requires extra investments. We'll go into details about that below.
