Nightclub Do’s and Don’ts

What’s the difference between a ‘standard’ nightclub and a ‘posh’ nightclub? Aside from the price, you may see celebrities, and the dress code is usually nicer. Other than that, the heart is the same – to have a great time! Here are some nightclub do’s and don’ts.


  • Follow the dress code
  • Check the cover charge before you go
  • Plan a way to get home that doesn’t involve you driving
  • Leave before the club closes; you don’t want to get thrown out!
  • Drink plenty of water


  • Annoy the doorman
  • Argue the cover charge
  • Bother celebrities you see
  • Wear high heels – these aren’t great for dancing!
  • Share a taxi with someone you’ve just met

The bottom line is this: stay safe, take plenty of pictures, and have a truly fantastic 21st birthday!
