Essential Clubbing Etiquette

Clubbing is a great way to blow off steam on a Friday night after a stressful week at work, but this doesn’t mean that you are free to do whatever you want. There are certain unspoken rules that you need to know and follow so that everyone in the club will have a good time. You might already know some of them, but just to make sure, here are some of the most essentially etiquette to remember when clubbing.

Dress For The Occasion

Okay, so there isn’t really a rule to how you should dress when going clubbing, but you would stand a much bigger chance of actually getting into the club when you dress like you’re supposed to. Don’t worry as this doesn’t mean that you should wear teeny, tiny skirts or really revealing dresses. For the ladies, avoid jeans, sweatpants and sneakers. For the men, avoid tank tops, cargo pants, or slippers.

Do Not Annoy The Bouncer

Before you can get inside the bar, you’ll to first get past the bouncer. Now, there are a few things that you should keep in mind here. One, you could always discreetly slip some money into the bouncer’s hands to get inside if he won’t let you in. You could also come as a crowd of ladies since it’s just a fact that women stand a better chance of getting inside the club. If all else fails, you’ll just need to wait. Whatever you do, just don’t annoy the bouncer.

Pay As Your Order At The Bar And Order For Everyone When In A Group

Once you get inside the club, you may want to go directly to the bar to order some drinks. If you do, be sure to order pay for your drink immediately since you run the risk of getting overcharged. If you came as part of a group, ask everyone what they want since it’s simply polite.

Dance To Have Fun, Not To Annoy

Finally, once you get to the dance floor, you can let loose and dance to your heart’s content. However, you should not grind against someone who clearly doesn’t appreciate it and you should try to avoid bumping into people as much as possible.

    Thanks for sharing such simple yet easy to remember rules when clubbing. I used to feel out-of-place when I go out with other teens. I hope I can overcome this negative emotion when clubbing 🙂

    I think etiquette such as not annoying the bouncer is always violated. Most young people these days have no respect for people – especially bouncers. That’s the main reason why they always get into fights!
