Nightclub Management are a series of Free Mode missions in Grand Theft Auto Online introduced as part of the After Hours update.

Description

"Okay, good to see you're doing something to keep this club running. The DJ plays, I do my thing, Lazlow... does his, I suppose... if that's a thing. And you have got to make sure {nightclub} is the name on everybody's lips. You'll be spreading the word, keeping booze costs down, bringing the right people in, and keeping the wrong people out. And any of these jobs will have a direct effect on how well we're doing, I promise you."
— Tony Prince to the player

After completing the initial setup of the player's club, access is provided to the management computers in the office and warehouse levels.

In order to increase and maintain the popularity of the nightclub, the player must undergo regular club management.

Unlike most other business activities, the player can perform the Promote Club activities in any session type, they are not restricted to public lobbies only.

Players can select the Promote Club option from the computer and get jobs from either Tony Prince or Lazlow Jones but they can also receive a series of club promotion missions by phone call from English Dave while not in the club. The former two give a 25% increase in popularity on completion.

Missions vary greatly in difficulty but are randomly issued. Some feature opposition from NPC gangs, while others involve celebrities not previously seen in GTA Online.

Locations in some missions may be relative to the location of the player's club, while others will be the same regardless of the club's location.

There is a mandatory 5 minute cool down between completion of one Promote Club job and being able to start another.

Tony Prince: Promote Club jobs

Place posters

"At the end of the day, nothing beats a bit of physical marketing. You're going to do it old school and put fly-posters up around the city. Get to work."
— Tony's instructions


The player receives a bag of fly-posters promoting the current resident DJ at the club and has to put them up by hand at 8 locations throughout the city. Some of these locations will be on the walls of direct competitors to the player's club.

This mission does not give away the player's activities to the rest of the session.

— Tony's instructions

Deliver supplies

"Alright, three long decades in this business and one thing is still true: nightclubs run on booze. And no matter how much we charge, the cheaper we can get it, the better. Bring in the shipment of champagne I've located, and I'll make sure we got people here to drink it."
— Tony's instructions


The player is given 15-20 minutes to travel to a location and collect a Mule filled with bottles of champagne and deliver it back to the club. The cargo is fragile and a Supplies Health meter is shown on the HUD to indicate the amount of damage sustained.

"You got the truck? Good. You're carrying fragile cargo there so make it back here as fast as you can but without causing too much damage to the bottles."

"Great. Do I have a job for you. Crowds can smell if a club isn't right, and right now, our club isn't right. We've been robbed for a truck of booze. Get it and we can get back to running this place properly."
— Tony's instructions


Local gangs have stolen a Mule with unspecified alcohol from the club. The player has 15-20 minutes to travel to their location, recover the truck and return it to the club. NPC gang members will provide armed opposition at the truck's location and will pursue the truck on the return trip to the club.

Smash vehicles

"So... here's what we're gonna do. For once in our lives, we're going to refuse to be gentrifiers. Some property developers are trying to piggy back off of what we're doing here... to open up mini-malls, or something. Run them off and get us some edge back."
— Tony's instructions


McGill-Olsen Construction developers are trying to cash in on the increased popularity of the neighborhood. Tony requires the player to scare them off by damaging their bosses' vehicles parked at 4 locations surrounding the player's nightclub. Locations will be specific to each of the 10 nightclub locations.

The player has 20 minutes to perform the damage and is given a Baseball Bat if they do not already have one in their inventory. At each location, a McGill-Olsen Burrito will be parked alongside the target vehicle which will be a more expensive customized vehicle including:

A Vehicle damage meter is shown on the HUD to indicate when enough damage has been done to each vehicle. The bat does not have to be used but the damage must be inflicted by a weapon, ramming the vehicles with another vehicle does not increment the damage meter. The player can completely destroy the cars without penalty.

There will be 4 or more NPCs at each site, two executive types and two contractors. The two contractors will become aggressive and may need to be subdued, although sometimes simply aiming at them with a weapon will be enough to scare them off without needing to physically assault them. However, killing too many of them will cause the mission to fail.

Upon completion, the popularity of the club will increase and the player will be rewarded with up to $5,000 and up to 800 RP.


Collect clubbers

"Okay, let's try and get the buzz back in this place. You know, my momma always said, "Want to catch some flies, you need a pile of shit." Collect some pieces of shit rich folks for us, bring them to the club, and all the flies will follow."
— Tony's instructions


Tony requests the player poach customers from rival clubs throughout the city. Two individual clubbers need to be picked up from outside two different clubs within a 15-20 minute time limit. Tony's Schafter V12 must be used.

Play music from a blimp

"Okay, we need to do something big, something theatrical, something Vinewood, baby. We're promoting our DJ on the side of a blimp. Pick it up and fly it over the city. Everyone will know what's going on here."
— Tony's instructions


Tony asks the player to promote the club and the current resident DJ by flying a Blimp to three different promotional areas and playing the DJ's music long enough to garner interest. An Interest meter is displayed on the HUD at each location. The blimp must remain within the area marked on the map for the duration or the interest meter will start reducing. There is a 20 minute time limit to collect the blimp from LSIA and finish the third site. A Buzzard Attack Chopper will be parked next to the blimp for the player's associates to use for protecting the blimp.

— Tony's instructions


4 Benson supply trucks, each manned by two Los Santos Triads members with possible escorts in FQ2s are being driven into the city to resupply Bahama Mamas. The player is required to destroy them all within 20 minutes. Three of the trucks will usually be on the freeways heading into the city, the fourth will already be within the city limits.

Upon completion, the popularity of the club will increase and the player will be rewarded with up to $5,000 and up to 800 RP.


Lazlow Jones: Promote Club jobs

Collect VIPs

"Heya, yeah, so, I kinda promised Tony I'd get some famous people in, but... no one's answering my texts. We're not cool enough, alright? We've got to make do with a couple of D-list influencers for now. Go pick 'em up, bring 'em in, and, you know, hopefully the celebrities will follow."
— Lazlow's instructions


The player is directed by Lazlow Jones to collect 2 VIPs from separate locations and deliver them to the club. Tony's white Patriot Stretch must be used. There is a 15-20 minute time limit.

— Lazlow's instructions


Lazlow has a lead on a celebrity to bring to the club, but doesn't know exactly where they are. He will send snapmatic images by text to the player's phone and the player must use Tony's Patriot Stretch to go to the location. Once the player arrives, Lazlow will explain they have moved on and send another snapmatic clue. At the second location the scenario repeats and the player will find the celebrity waiting at the third location.

Press to open your phone and view the text from Lazlow. This contains the snapmatic sent by the celebrity.

English Dave calls stating the DJ wants their friends brought to the club, the player is required to collect a helicopter and pick up the three NPCs and return to the club.

"Alright then. You got them all on board? Now, one of 'em doesn't like heights that much, so, uh... you gotta fly 'em close to the ground. You can do that right? Lovely"
— Dave


However one of the NPCs is afraid of heights so the player is required to maintain an altitude of under 250 ft on the return journey.

The HUD minimap shows a purple height indicator to show the player whether they are within a safe height range, and if they exceed this, then Dave will message the player to fly lower. A panic level indicator is shown on the bottom right of the HUD.

"Things aren't looking very peachy up there! Take it nice and easy. Proper low remember?"
