Maybe presenter isn't the right word... It's basically this guy's party. He invited the DJs, etc.

Disagree with this. Some clubs are not worth paying for, but others are definitely worth paying to get in. I was in one club in Shibuya Tokyo that was freaking awesome and cost 3000yen (37usd) to get in. Famous real DJs, three different floors with different types of music, super hot girls and great vibe. I was a poor bastard at the time and the night was on a rich friend's dime which made it an even better night.

I'm not expecting this club to be like that... I'm in freaking Chile after all.

One of the easiest ways to get into clubs is to live in Milwaukee, and go to Milwaukee clubs. Works every time, and it's free.

That makes him the host, doesn't it? And when there's a host, there's usually is a guest list, which is made by... the host. Assuming you're a friend or even an significant acquaintance of the host you're possibly on the list. You oughtta ask. Whatever sum you would've tipped the bouncer you can send half to me, buy your lady friend something nice w/ the other other half, and you're even Steven.

Never paid a dime.....Either me or one of my boyz knew the DJ/promoter/manager of the club...

This thread has more lessons than those under 35 here realize. Eventually you'll realize a nice restaurant is a better place to be. And dont give the host any $.

Edit: ok, I will inform...

You're a tool for sitting in a line at the door, and a tool for giving some cro-magnon bouncer money to get into a club, and a fool to think you are special because you are on a list, and douche to be a hanger on to a girl getting you in. >> no outcome here.

Inside you're a tool for paying stupid prices for drinks. And a sucker for buying girls drinks who will laugh about you on the way home. You'll get wrapped up in the drama, pretend for a few hours, make some new pretend friends, dance like shit, jockey for attention, and when you leave the empty feeling will emerge, the empty feeling always emerges. Even if a slut agrees to leave with you... woo hoo, you fucked a girl. >> You'll go back to work Monday just like everyone else.

Yeah, but sometimes there is a birthday party in a bar/club and a line down the block. A little greasing of the hand to not have to wait in line is worth it. For some random place, no but if I have to meet people inside, I don't mind.

My cousin is a bouncer and he wouldn't let anyone in without the manager saying so -- not even me. Not that I'd ever go to the club where he works.

The club phase is a rite of passage. Granted, if you're still doing it at age 25, you're a fool or a drug addict or both; but nothing wrong with acting a fool at a foolish age.

Still almost all of what you said is pretty much spot on. Presentation's a little bitter, but the content's good.

I was there. Quit at around 26. I went in one once at around 31 or so and realized what a waste it was. Still, seemed fun at the time. Good way to induce hearing loss.

If I were to be honest, I wouldnt recommend it to anyone. Its a cesspool. People go to clubs because they have nothing better to do.

Go early when there isn't much of a line. Also you could try to Get to know some promoters, djs and door guys and sometimes theyll waive you past the line. As much as I go out in dc, I only have this worked out at one spot.
