My main demo store is similar, without the membership bit (and their
food/soda prices are reasonable).  I started demoing there by getting a
couple of "ringers" to come in and play games with me, which attracted
attention from other regulars.  Also, it's a good thing to be able to
have a regular demo day - as that way, if someone asks about a given
product, the store can pimp the demo as a way to try-before-you-buy. 
Works out well all around.
