Welcome to the world of Nightlife clubbing! If it’s your first time to hit the club with your girl gang — or even if it’s your first time partying in quite a while — here are the top first time clubbing tips that you MUST take note of!
Bring at least one trusted friend a.k.a your buddy for the night!
This is important, especially if it's your first time going out to a club. After all, you two will be keeping an eye on each other all night; but, it goes without saying that you should also look out for yourself.
Arriving early is a great way to get a feel for the club and to get a good spot on the dance floor. It also gives you a chance to meet people and make friends.
Reserve that VIP table- or not. Either is fine.
If you’ve got the money to spare, if you love your feet, and if there are a lot of you in your girl gang, then yes, get one (sometimes, a club offers promo packages for big groups). But if there aren't a lot of you and you’re just there to dance (especially since you’ve already done ‘pre-drinks’ — more on this later) then there’s no need for a table. In fact, as the night goes on, you might meet new people who will invite you to their table!
We're all so fashion-conscious these days, so I'm sure you know what to wear to a party and what not to. You might be tempted to put on those killer high heels to complete your look, but you should consider whether you will be able to handle them after a night of nonstop dancing. In fact, some people would choose flats instead of sneakers; however, pay attention to the club's dress code because sneakers won't be acceptable if it is a high-end one.
Most clubs don’t accept credit cards, so make sure you bring enough cash to cover your drinks and any other expenses.
It’s easy to get dehydrated when you’re dancing and drinking all night. Make sure you drink plenty of water and take breaks when you need to.
Try to develop a signal that you and your friend(s) can use to indicate, for example, that you need help dancing away from a guy so that they can swoop in and rescue you.
Have fun and relax.
Sure, there might be some shady individuals in that club who are looking into taking advantage of you (you’ll never know), but you can and always take control of the situation as long as you’re mindful. So don’t get too nervous, it’s just a fun place like any other, the most important thing is to have fun.
Know Your Limits.
Don’t overdo it with the drinks. Know your limits and stick to them.
If the night ended so well for you that you can’t seem to get the words ‘epic‘ or ‘awesome‘ out of your system, then hooray for you! Cheers to your nightlife!
I’m glad to know that you had fun and that these first time clubbing tips have helped.
