Job Details
Deluxx Fluxx Detroit

In 2010, Deluxx Fluxx started as an arcade art installation in London by artists Faile and Bast. It has since been shown in major museums, pop-ups and large experiential dance hall shows. In 2018, Deluxx Fluxx opened it's first permanent location within The Belt alley in Downtown Detroit, giving home to a wonderland of sound and vision.

The nightclub space features live DJs, bands, and other variety shows and themed dance nights. Interactive artworks such as custom arcade machines, foosball, and air hockey fill the space along with the iconic black light room that has become a main feature of the experience. The menu is built for volume consisting of all cocktails on tap and batched in bottle to streamline service to the 300 cap room. The bar program is run under the same ownership as two-time James Beard-nominated cocktail bar Standby.

Deluxx Fluxx is a very busy, high-energy bar and venue where we value each interaction with our guests, aiming to deliver service at the level of an intimate cocktail bar or restaurant in a high-volume setting. We demonstrate leadership in our community by creating an inclusive, safe space, and not tolerating anything that jeopardizes that. At Deluxx Fluxx, we believe the key to our success starts with having quality people working with us. We look forward to meeting you.

The GM candidate must lead, inspire and embody our core values in every interaction with our guests, our team, our performers, and our community.

Key Responsibilities of the GM:

Staffing, Scheduling, and Onboarding
The schedule should reflect one that is optimized for maximum output, paramount guest experience, and cleanliness. Schedules should be out two weeks in advance and include meetings or training when necessary. All employees should be guided through our onboarding process to ensure they have a thorough understanding of our values, our service strategy, and the product we serve.

Invoicing, Reporting, Ordering, Cash Reconciliation
The GM is responsible for the ordering of all items needed for service for the week, including but not limited to; Liquor, Beer, Wine, Dry Goods, Menu Paper, Items Needed for General Maintenance, and Repair.

The GM will report on key metrics (KPIs) that will be the measurement of success on a weekly and monthly basis. Bonuses will be based on the achievement of these metrics on a sliding scale.

The GM will provide detailed spreadsheets of daily door drops and production costs related to the venue. Must be well versed in creating google/excel spreadsheets and have financial acumen.

Menus & Execution
GM is responsible for creating (and/or curating) the cocktail menu along with implementing the systems to make each menu change seamless.

Opening & Closing/Systems
The GM should provide an updated opening and closing checklist for each menu change, operational change, or special event that takes place. This should include daily and weekly cleaning tasks. This should include side work for every position. The lists should be detailed and checked off every evening.

The highest gauge of service is cleanliness. The bar and venue must be immaculate at all times. You are the eyes and ultimately responsible.

The Last Line of Defense
The GM candidate should be ready and willing to do what needs to get done on any given night. That means grabbing a mop for a spill if the bar team is too busy, or clearing tables in the venue because a busser called off. No job or task is beneath you.
