I know that a good number of UGers are probably underage, but for those who have been out before, have you become bored of it yet?

Personally, the last few times have been a snoozefest for me.

When I had just began going out I was completely excited, ready to party all night long and getting piiiished. But now, it just seems like a chore.

There's only so much you can dance to until you get bored, it's too loud to have any semi-decent conversation, and you don't always want to hang at the bar fighting others to get a drink.

So does anyone else feel the same, or am I just a silly nancy?

Nope, I was out most nights from 17 to 21.

I'm approaching 25 and I'm burned out on it. The occasional once or twice a year trip is fun, but I'd much rather relax in my local with it's pints of stout for £1.37!

It always seems like a good idea at the time, but once you're in there you wonder why you paid to get in to this shit.

It's like a confidence trick that is designed to trick drunks consistently.

I prefer predrinking in a house so you can talk and get drunk... then by the time we make it out we don't need to speak

It does get old though. I tend to take a weekend off every now and then. The place we used to go to in college was closed so my clubbing life kinda ended then.. so sad

Yep.
My friends love it, but all the clubs around here are crap. 'The Place' possibly to most expensive club here smells of puke everywhere. I'd rather sit in with some friends and have a few beers, or even better a house party.

Because house parties ALWAYS >>>>>>>>> clubbing.

Yes but then I started eating lots of drugs beforehand.

I never really liked clubbing. I'd much rather go somewhere for a quiet drink and a chat. I do enjoy dancing though.
So come on in
it ain't no sin
take off your skin
and dance around in your bones

I was bored of it at 15.

Never knew the appeal.
I'd managed to get into the occasional club from knowing someone who worked there or something and didn't like it.
I hit 18 and got taken to some metal club or whatever and it was just like "okay...so...loud music, people acting a fool and seeing a bunch of guys act all alpha male over a girl he's never met...this is a hoot".

I'd much rather have fun with cool people than do the club scene.
#13
I always prefer drinking with my friends inside their/my house. I'm not really the outgoing type of person.
#14
Clubbing and mainstream raves = a bunch of trendy ******s doing shit drugs, drinking on their trust funds, and listening to shit music.


Psytrance raves = Doing the highest quality drugs around, tripping bawls to awesome music.

Though there is a good club near me on mondays they have pints and shots for £1. My "usual" is quadruple JD and coke.

I have only been going to clubs for 2 years and I'm already getting bored of it

Helps a lot though if you go to a club which plays music and has a DJ you like, makes the night a whole lot better.

Truth.

A bajillion times easier to approach women, the booze is loads cheaper, if worst comes to worst you can usually crash on the couch, or at least the floor.
#17
I love dancing but most people I know who go just want to get drunk and I don't, but I don't want to go by myself either. So it's not really that I'm tired of clubbing since I've never really done what I wanted to do except for a few times. I'm tired of having to babysit people who can't walk straight and be responsible for getting them home.

Never really liked alcohol.. or dancing.
I preffer pub nights.
#19
Nothing is boring if your drunk enough, for clubbing that level of drunk is enough that you can't remember it... seems pointless but it's not

forgot to say that yea clubs suck and club music sucks, gigs are much better as are being with friends at the pub

Fo shure. People tend to hang out in cliques in club environments, whereas everyone is more approachable in a house party. Plus there are usually rooms you can sneak into if you need some privacy with someone. And bathrooms you don't need to stand in a line for.

Bored isn't the right word. I hated clubs from the off.

Here's why:
- Ludicrous drink prices
- So loud you can't speak to anyone, you even have to yell when ordering drinks
- Shit music
- Cramped and overcrowded
- Always puddles of liquid on the floor. Whether it's piss or drink, you can never be sure
- The toilets. Oh sweet mother of god. You have to pretty much wade through piss to get to a toilet.
- If you don't like dancing (like me), you're screwed
- If you're sober, you're not going to have a good time
- You pay so much money just to get in, yet every other establishment on Earth that doesn't require an entry fee is cleaner, cheaper and more enjoyable.


Yeah. Give me a pub and a pint of Guinness any day.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

I don't really like clubbing anyway. I like going to pubs or sitting with friends in a quiet atmosphere.

I've got back into it recently, I think the biggest motivator is finding a good club or good night as the vast majority of nights are rubbish.

Completely agree, exchange the pint of Guinness for a bottle of Newcastle Brown and I'll join you in the pub mate.

Another thing that pisses me off about clubs is how they always have staff who think they're better than you.

The bouncers are the worst, they think they have some insane amount of power because they get to scrutinise your legit ID for ages.
Rarely have I met a cool bouncer.

Bar staff always act like you're pissing them off when you order a drink to.
I mean...it's their job, why do they act like you're doing them wrong by ordering a drink!?

clubbing? no thanks, i stick to using sharp or pointy things to injure people.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

The thing is, I used to really agree with most of these but still enjoy going out nowadays. Admittedly, it's been slightly less the last few weeks, but still good.

Pre-drinking before is the key I think. You don't have to buy as many expensive drinks, get a chance to socialise whilst you're still sober enough to hold down conversation well, and just generally have a better time when drunk.

Partly it's about finding a decent place and going out on a night with a decent crowd. Being a student I'm usually at the student nights so everyone's usually nice enough and you bump into people you know all the time. I tried going to our old standard student club on a Satuirday and Christ... Never seen so many scally twats in one place. Absolute shite.

So yeah, I know overcrowded and dirty is a common complaint, but that's just a matter of finding a nice place.

Well I can imagine that these bar workers are on a wage, so they won't actually see that money.
Only one time when I've been at a bar I've had a cool bar worker serve me the drinks.
I actually once had someone audibly sigh when I ordered.

Thing is I'm sure I was the most polite and least rowdy customer of the night!
#38
To be honest, the second last time I was out I was drunker than any of my mates and it was one of the worst nights I ever had.

Come to think of it, the best time I had was at a Halloween party where I puked outside, inside, and at a girl's flat afterwards. All while wearing a Mario costume. Such an epic, epic night.
#39
I know I am. I really prefer just being at a relaxing place with some friends while drinking some beers than going to a club.
#40
Clubbing is complete pants. I've gone out heaps of times and blown a shitload of money, and really not enjoyed it. To be honest, I'd rather go out for a feed and a couple of games of pool, and get pissed with my mates down at the pub. Clubbing is so goddamn overrated. Hell, house parties beat the shit out of it.
