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.
