What improvemtents to a Local Hotspot should I make

I had this rejected months ago but considering the September AMA I want to try again.

Any advice before I do so


A local hotspot with live music and bands and food

Winners is the only place around with Live Music. Many local bands get their start here and as such this becomes a huge local hotspot.


Now one though I had was showing in suppremental picture how deep the parking lot is and that its packed.

I submit via PMG so I can't just use a "Stored" photo and have to take it live.


Any thoughts? If you were reviewing what might tip you to give it a positive

    Personally, I think this sign is not too unique. Seems too generic to me, so it really won't get a high score, if I come across something like this. Others may think different of course

    Hrrm yeah that is my guess of a problem. Sign can be "Generic" but the place can be Important to Community and Hotspots are differernt and mentioned in September AMA as eligible that wouldnt be in generic

    I guess I'm looking for some thought on how I could make it clearer to reviews that its not the generic, its the effect the music has in making it a Hotspot

    The picture of the sign to represent the Bar as a POI is fine, its not the most awe inspiring but ive seem much worse too.

    However your description is severely lacking and the support statement lacks substance.

    I googled the bar and it does appear to be a good local venue which showcases new bands.

    However not everyone will do such a search, they would just read the lackluster description and support statement and think meh and mash the 1* generic business option.

    I would rework the description with the support text info (slightly reworded)

    Then in the support text mention that its in trip advisor and other sites highlighting it as a local hotspot in travel guides which is acceptable business under the Jan 2020 clarifications.

    Also if you can find / have names of bands / artists that got their start there before making it big then add them too. Really hammer home then hotspot nature of the business.

    Even after all that be prepared for it to be rejected a few times, some reviewers will see a business, any business, and just reject out of hand because they are idiots

    I would try a description more like: American food with atmosphere, Winners is a cultural hub that hosts live music 2x/week as well as a songwriter's singing roundtable 2x/week.

    And in the supporting info if you have room (Theisman has GREAT suggestions), maybe a link to the Sept AMA.
