* In the ''Literature/KittyNorville'' series, vampires owned nightclubs before they widely known to exist. And since these vampires could hypnotize and play with people's memories, the bitten tend to go home remembering what a great time they had.

* Averted in ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries The Rhesus Chart]]''. Vampires are essentially {{serial killer}}s, so need to pick victims that no-one will miss. That means the elderly or homeless runaways, not pretty young things who can afford to go to nightclubs. The newly-turned vampires in the novel don't know this (being yuppies who are just [[WrongGenreSavvy doing what they see vampires do on television and movies]]) and are regarded as literally TooDumbToLive by their kin.

* Like all the other vampire tropes, ''Film/WhatWeDoInTheShadows'' parodies and deconstructs this. There is a vampire-owned nightclub that the main cast frequents, but it's not very good and never attracts a crowd. Because the vampires were all BornInTheWrongCentury and are unable to make themselves look socially acceptable due to lacking a reflection, they can't actually get into a real nightclub and have no idea what they're actually like.

* A 700-year-old vampire named Lola owns a night club in an episode of ''{{Moonlight}}'', using it as a front for her vampire drug operation. There is a VIP section that requires one to have a chip implanted into the hand that confirms one's identity and VIP status. This is because the VIP section is where the drug is sold.

* ''Literature/TheSookieStackhouseMysteries'' discusses this. Vampire nightclubs like Fangtasia are much more lucrative than, say, all-night groceries and dry cleaners, which is why vampires tend to own them instead.
