The reason why we look forward to the weekend is that it’s time to party and indulge in all sort of activities! With all the hustling in the country, it is only fair that we get our groove on and we sure know how to do it.
From Ikeja to Victoria Island, there are clubs dotted all over the city and you’ll find all sorts of people from the good, the bad and the ugly there so you need have to be careful every step of the way, Don’t ever do these in a nightclub;
1. Be with Limited Funds
Drinks at the bar are over-priced. Even bottle water that is sold for 50 naira, is at least 500 naira in a club, talk less of the drinks. A bottle of wine in the club should be nothing less than 7000 naira (Seven thousand naira).
If you know you want to go to the club, carry enough funds. Don’t go there and be looking like a beggar
2. Taking too much alcohol
The tendency to get carried away at a nightclub is very high. While very few people drink moderately, others drink to stupor and this is where the problem lies. Many fail to ask this singular question: “How will I get home if all I get tipsy?” “What if i get robbed?”
If you and your friends are so keen on drinking, you can but the driver should stay sober for the safety of everyone.
3. Hitting on other women
If you want to survive a Lagos nightclub, it is better to go with your woman. I’m not saying you shouldn’t hit on other women but, you should avoid women that are with their guys if you don’t want any trouble. This is because very few guys will take it lightly with you if they find out that you are hitting on their woman. It’s better to drink alone than to be beaten because of a woman.
4. Not having your gate pass
Ever encountered the huge bouncers that mount the gates of these night clubs? The way they throw out mischievous persons on their shoulders will definitely embarrass you. If you do not want to experience any of this, you should know that some clubs accept gate passes and you can either buy your pass online or get it at the club premises.
5. Refusing to Dance
You’re already paying excess money for drinks, so its only right that you have fun. The club is not a place for observing others while sipping your drink. To get the best out of the club you have to step on the dance floor and shake your body to the tunes blaring from the big speakers.
For the ladies, guys will always come around to ask for a dance. It is better to accept gladly or politely reject their request. You will not like to know what happens if you rudely reject a dance request.
6. Trying to trick the Bar man
Don’t ever try to form “Sharp guy” for the bar man. The Bar man is usually very wise and sharp, with loud voices, and they don’t hesitate to call the bouncers when there is need to.
So, don’t be a sharp guy. Pay the amount you’re supposed to pay and leave the bar.
