Last night I went to a downtown club because a friend was celebrating his birthday there. Why do people go to those places? The music is so loud you can't hear what anyone says. In fact, I had trouble understanding the bouncer who told me there would be a cover charge just to go in and look for my friend.
I opted to leave. I'll buy my friend a birthday drink in some quieter place some other time. But on my way home, about 11pm, the club scene was just beginning to come alive in downtown London. Limos pulled up in front of them and disgorged young adults, mostly dressed in black.The young women were so scantily dressed, they were shivering as they queued up to go in. And the young men were dressed in black.
I asked a bouncer at a different club on the way home if I could step inside for a moment and look for my granddaughter. He just laughed with me. :-)
But seriously, if you can't hear or be heard, what's the draw? Just pulsating ear-shattering music? You can't even meet new people very easily in that environment. Drugs? There must be more pleasant ways to acquire and use them.
As I said, what's the draw? I don't understand clubs.
