The reason why many Lagosians look forward to the weekend is that it’s time to party and indulge! With all the hustling in the city, it is only fair that they get their groove on and they 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. Jovago.com, Africa’s No. 1 hotel booking portal shares some things you should not do at a nightclub!
Bingeing on 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?’ If you and your friends are so keen on drinking, you can but the driver should stay sober for the safety of everyone.
Hitting on other women
If you want to survive a Lagos nightclub, it is better to go with your woman. Alternatively, if you do not want any trouble, you should avoid women that are obviously with their guys. This is because very few guys will take it lightly with you if they find out that you are hitting on their woman. This always happens at nightclubs.
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.
Refusing to dance
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.
Doing everything you see
The nightclub is free-for-all. Everyone is free to whatever they want. You dress irresponsibly, drink and smoke as much as you want. But whatever you do ensure that you do not get influenced by the happenings around especially for persons visiting the club for the first time.
