When appropriate, MAC advocates for the best interest of the entertainment industry by being involved with city and state hearings on matters affecting MAC members and clubs.
Hotel concierges are frequently asked by their guests to recommend night time entertainment. To increase the knowledge of the city’s cabarets and clubs, MAC invites members of the NY Association of Hotel Concierges to different MAC member clubs to hear a cross-section of singers, comedy performers, and musicians.
