Advantages: Dancing, Music, Meeting New People
Disadvantages: Expensive, Queues, Hangovers...
I'm 23 years old and I've felt that I've done a lot of my clubbing years already. From the age of around 18 myself and my friends used to be out clubbing every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, so say 4 years of constant partying week to week, I don't know where I got my energy from, not to mention how expensive it is nowadays. I just loved the ritual of it all, deciding what to wear, buying a new outfit, getting ready with music on in the background, pampering, doing your make-up and hair, it was fun, fun, fun.
The clubs themselves had a great atmosphere, everyone was looking to have a good night, dancing, drinking and generally just having fun with friends as well as meeting new people. Our club often had celebrity appearances, the chosen celebrity would do an appearance then sign autographs and chat to fans afterwards and it always felt very relaxed and a generally good atmosphere. I even went to one of the after parties of one well known celebrity, I'm not saying who though, but his agent was an utter and complete *insert swear word*.
* Great time to catch up with friends
* Meeting new people
* Some don't have cloak rooms
* Cost, once you add it all up, new outfits, taxi's, entry fee's, drinks, food afterwards you'd be surprising at how much ££'s you can get through
* Sleazy people trying to latch onto you
* Hangover the day after
* Irritating people who get far too drunk
* Violence, I've seen many fights happen inside/outside of clubs
That's just a few pin-pointers. All of this of course depends on which club you go to. Always remember never to leave your drink unattended though; fortunately I have never had my drink tampered with although I do know people that this as happened to and it's always been an unpleasant experience. Only get into registered taxi cars too, and drink to your limits!!!
Nowadays I prefer to go to a nice bar, something more relaxed which is still lively but you can still have a conversation with people. Clubbing will still be a part of my life and I'll still gladly accept those invites out with the girls!! Just not so much as my younger days, am I getting old you think? Hehe.
Summary: God is a DJ....
