The best way to get into nightclubs fast without the wait is to have your name on its guest list.
If you are not a friend or relative of someone with influence in your world of your favorite nightclubs, try browsing the websites of the promoters of the best clubs in your city and submitting yourself to their guest lists. You will usually have more chances with these promoters’ sites than with the websites of the nightclubs themselves because the clubs’ promoters are the ones who run the guest lists.
But whether or not you are able to get your name on the guest lists of your favorite club, here are a few tips to help you get in, or jump the long queue, and have the night of your life.
So many people love to be late, but if it’s a choice between arriving early and not getting in at all, which would you choose? The earlier you show up at the door, the more chance you will have of getting in. Bouncers tend to let the early birds in freely so that later on, when the hordes of partiers arrive, they will not be surprised by an empty club and leave. Popular nightclubs tend to be a lot friendlier earlier in the night before the crowds arrive. Remember, their reputation for being a top hot spot in the city is still on the line.
Dress to impress. One thing that almost all popping nightclubs have in common is their dress code. Even most mid-level nightclubs will not allow entrance to a person wearing sneakers, tennis shoes or sleeveless shirts. Try to look good, and by good I mean well dressed. I don’t mean your best Timberland’s lol. I mean put on a nice dress shirt and some slick trousers finished off with a pair of polished shoes.
If you are a male and are planning on partying out with a big group of male friends, it may be wise to hunt down some females to accompany you. Large groups of men can be looked down on by nightclubs for many reasons, but the bouncers tend to soften up a little when there are females along. If this is impossible for some reason, try booking a table ahead of time for your all male group. The only exception to this of course is if you guys are heading to a stripclub instead. But if you are cool like me, then you can still pull off a few females to accompany you.
