...or the 45-year-old guy who wears a suit to a club where 20-somethings go in t-shirts, jeans, shorts and flip-flops. That's even less creepy...

Some of you guys flat out saying clubbing sucks have obviously never been to somewhere like Berlin.

Awesome advice.

I am advising him on dress. He is the one who wants to wear a $3000 suit to a fucking night club, so people can spill drinks and possibly vomit on it. He also wants skanks with daddy issues who'll be clawing at it.

Sounds like you are the one who needs advice on getting cougars in $3000 St John knits to claw at you and massage your Oedipus complex. Calm down

i will admit that while I spend a lot less time in clubs than I used to (and I don't think many people here would question my clubcred) I still entertain a fantasy of having an office with a big glass wall that overlooks a nightclub. That will remain bad ass to me long after I have declared myself too old to go downstairs...

Still doable, Matt. I did coordination stuff deep into my 20s, and I could see myself comfortably doing it now, or even into my 40s. The thing is though, like you said, you'd be running the show, rather than participating in the festivities (which might also explain the discreet dress.) I'll admit that it's sort of a rush to be in charge.

Why are you going clubbing at over 45?

I work with a bunch of 20-29 year olds. When on business conferences, I sometimes find myself at a table in a club. Yes, I am ordering the bottles for the whole table, etc. The music is great, the crowds are mixed and I typically enjoy the experience. Lately I have gone to a few clubs with my wife, and again, there is just something mind-blowing about loud techno and hundreds of dancing people.

I know a lot of gents go for the pickups, but not I. I am there for the party....kind of like Andy.

Note that "clubbing" is not the same thing as "ending up at a club."

If you've got some younger friends/co-workers and they want to go out to a club, and you want to socialize, that's fine. But if so, honestly my advice is to dress your age. Much better to not look like you're an old dude trying to go hard with the youngsters -- just be like "yeah I'm 47, fuck of it? My social life was never murdered by a baby."

I suppose in general I'd stay away from ravey/dance-heavy/standing-room-only sort of clubs, stick to a place where you can grab a seat with your friends, dress age-appropriate, and dress more casual than not (not lazy, but casual).

My dad sort of falls into this category -- he's 55 but his employees are mostly 20s-30s, and he has a wide range of friends from 24-65. He does end up at clubs but he doesn't try to dance, his first choices for social outings are more age-appropriate, and he generally looks like he doesn't give a fuck. He is not someone who would ever purposefully attempt to go "clubbing."

But even then dude's still sort of creeper-status and bangs a lot of 20-somethings with daddy issues, so I don't know if you can get any better than ~20% on the creep-ometer


I am hanging out at clubs because of business obligations. Honestly, I am not dancing, just hanging out and love every minute of it.

I see all age groups. I see old dudes, old ma'ams, the very young and every some guys my age. Tso Club in Vegas for example was a real mix.

Mate......I'm only going to the clubs to keep up with the 20 Somethings at business conferences. Maybe I should stay at the hotel bar and eat peanuts??

At 45+ you should be a big dog in your industry (whatever that may be). The 20 somethings should be trying to keep up with you, not the other way around.

Assless chaps are pretty timeless.

Only way u can legitimately "club" at 45 is if ur a rich dude with a stable of golddigging hoes. And even then its like 'this dude is in his 40s, only reason those chicks are with him is for food + shelter, i could prob bang one in his condo while hes away on business"

Its too late bro
