The economy may still be sluggish, but according to new revenue figures from industry publication Nightclub & Bar, people are raging as hard as ever.The 100 biggest clubs in the U.S. brought in $1.4 billion in revenue in 2011, up 9.2 per cent from 2010, the publication reported.

Unsurprisingly, Las Vegas—home of the megaclub—dominates the list of the top revenue-generating nightspots, contributing 22 of the top 100 venues and eight of the top 10.

Vegas’ Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub, which topped the list, reported a record-breaking $70 million in revenues, impressive for for a club in its first full year. Of course, the 62,000-square-foot, multi-level party house at The Cosmopolitan must also cost a fortune to operate.

Among survey participants overall, sales from alcohol accounted for 56 per cent of total revenues.
