A Little Song and Dance

A big part of promoting clubs is understanding the reasons people actually want to go out to clubs in the first place. Some people go for the drinks – but alcohol is available pretty much anywhere, so I’ve never considered that to be one of the main factors.

Some like the atmosphere, and that’s something you can’t just reproduce anywhere else, so we’re getting a little warmer. In my opinion, it’s all about the song and dance. Good music, good beats and a good environment to get your groove on in all work together to create a club people enjoy frequenting.

Now I travel a lot, I go all over the place, so I’ve seen plenty of clubs. Creating that perfect environment isn’t really easy, but then it isn’t really difficult either. It’s almost formulaic really. I already mentioned good music, but that’s changing all the time – songs that are hot now are out of style and gone cold months later.

That’s just how it goes. If you want to keep the music fresh, you have to keep your eyes (and more importantly your ears) open to what’s hot on the radio. That’s actually a very good source for hot songs, but there’s more to it than just music.

Lighting is cool too. I’m not talking about strobe lights like you used to see in the old discos, though those are still popular in some places. But lighting that scintillates, that’s always changing colors and such, that can really have a positive effect on the way people perceive a nightclub.

It’s fun, and it encourages the people who see it to have a good time too. But the one thing I really want to hit in this post is karaoke. Yeah, I know, it’s usually a bar thing. But adding a quality karaoke machine to your club could make a big difference on your bottom line.

I’m not talking about making karaoke a regular thing. If you do that, people are going to start thinking you’re running a karaoke bar or club. Not that there’s anything wrong with that; if that’s what you want to do then go right ahead. But giving all those tipsy people a little outlet besides dancing will get some of them to open up and have fun. Not everyone likes to dance, you know? It’s true, even at clubs which are full of dancing.

You could do contests, maybe have different singers compete against each other and see what the crowd present thinks about their performances, get everyone involved. It creates a sense of community in the club, and that’s great for getting repeat business from people.

If this sounds good to you, and it should, you might want to consider getting yourself a good karaoke machine for your own club, bar or other gathering spot. You can find lots of them at http://www.karaokeisle.com/ if you’re interested, though the site is mostly about reviews and for an actual purchase you’d have to go somewhere else.

How To Get You Fighting Fit For Dancing

Whoever said clubbing is all fun and games needs to have their craniums looked at. Yes, the main reason for getting down and low at a club until the cock crows is to have a good time. But manic clubbers, who do their thing nightly, never mind over every other weekend, will tell you it’s hardcore. The best clubs in the world are packed to the rafters on most nights so if you get that chance of a lifetime to visit any one of the iconic clubs located on Planet Earth you’re still going to need to worm and shove your way through those crowds.

The world champions of clubbing

Folks, this is where I butt in. One of the things that I’ll be doing at an epic event is making sure everything flows smoothly. It’s an art to get this right, making sure your group feels as though they have the entire joint to themselves. And even with the best bouncers around you, there are always a few off-beat characters whose primary aim is making every other fun-loving clubber’s life a living hell.

Now, for these folks, not only is all night dancing and clubbing a national pastime, for many it is their livelihood. And, boy, do I understand where they are coming from. I can relate to the passion that goes into creating the ultimate party atmosphere which often carries on in the morning sunlight out on the streets long after the club’s doors have been bolted shut. Not only are these boys and girls the proud brothers and sisters of the world’s best loved and most celebrated soccer players, affectionately and appropriately known as the Samba Kings, they may as well be the world champions of clubbing too.

The BJJ

But what makes these Brazilians so hardcore, bodies supple and muscled, world-weary while still finding mind-space to keep a serious eye out for dangerous, knife-wielding thugs. It could be the BJJ. Now, I know what you might also be thinking, it’s not that at all. I like a good blowjob just as much as the next guy. I’m talking about the shooter, one of the many traditional quick-drinks served at clubs around the world.

Now, the BJJ I’m referring to here is the South American version of martial arts known as the Brazilian jiu jitsu which is a lot more radical and sometimes even more brutal than the more disciplined and better known Eastern traditions. Before I head off to Rio, I’m going to have another look at this website which gives all specifications on what jiu jitsu uniforms are allowed in accordance with competition rules. I’m going to ditch the jacket for now and just go with the pants.

Get into dancing shape

It’s hot down there. So, when I’m not working I’ll be sure to show those fine ladies how my biceps are looking these days. You might also want to sign up for a class or two just to get you into shape for that next night out on the dance floor.

The Nightclub Scene in Paris

When compared to London or even Berlin, Paris does not feature much on the nightclub map. In fact, it is difficult to find really decent nightclubs here as I found out during one my recent visits to the fashion capital. But I managed to find out a few quality ones. Here are some of the top spots that give a great nightlife experience in Paris.

Batofar

Situated on a barge on the river Seine, this club has been in existence for a long time and with consistent crowds lining up always. The ship lights up the evening until the early hours and you can have your fill of rock, hip hop, dubstep, electro, and techno. The club offers a spectacular view of the city too.

Chez Moune

This club flaunts a vintage style décor with mirrored and tiled walls and low ceilings. The club caters to the hipster or branche crowd in Paris. Electro rock is the main style here. This is a free nightclub unlike most of the nightclubs here. Since it was hunting season, when I visited Paris, our group decided to go on a hunting trip.  The hunting lodge we stayed at provided all essential gear right from the hunting boots. I however had my own sturdy hunting boots I usually wear on my hunting trips, which I take along, whenever I’ve a hunting trip planned.

Chacha Club

This club featured luxurious art deco style in the interior, which is a stark contrast to the imposing and dark exterior façade it poses. If you are looking for a genuine private nightclub experience, this is the best one to frequent. Techno, electro, and pop are belted out by the DJs. For a calmer ambience, the fumoir or recording studio present in-house offers an escape route and so does the posh bathroom with its claw footed bathtub.

Le Truskel

This club offers a pleasing blend of micro club environment and Celtic style pub ambience. Featuring punk, electro pop and indie music, you can enjoy the beats well into dawn. The club is situated in a strategic area as you can see spill overs from parties conducted in the Olympia concert hall nearby. Since we were busy with our hunting schedule, we couldn’t get to see the concerts in this hall. However, the hunting trip was worth it as we had a great time. Having special SPYDERCO-POLICE tactical knives also helped a lot during the trip. It goes to show how having the right gear with you can make a trip highly satisfying.

Rex Club

This club has dance floors sunken below the normal ground level. For those who crave a new and altering experience, this club offers the best entertainment especially for the international crowd. I found the club similar to the techno-grunge style London clubs. While electronica and bass heavy beats dominate here, the bouncers at this club are often grouchy and temperamental, but are dressed as per the etiquette.

Le Social Club

This club located near Club Rex, in the Grands Boulevards region features some exciting hot DJ acts both in the international and French level. With retro-futuristic style, the club with a capacity to hold 500 people has electro, disco, techno, house and other similar genres.

All girls Las Vegas Vacation tips

It is not just the men who enjoy a stay in Las Vegas but girls too can have fun here. Whether it is a birthday, bachelorette or some other excuse for a trip, Las Vegas is the place to go. If you are still undecided about it, here are some tips to help.

Great hotels

The location has some fabulous hotels that cater to all budgets. It is best to book hotels that are nearer to the clubs you want to visit, so you don’t end up paying an expensive amount for the taxis. You can find a reasonably priced room that suits your conditions best easily in Flamingo. Hotels such as Monte Carlo, Tropicana, Excalibur, and Go Room are good budget hotels you can try.

The right company

Make sure you pick friends with a similar mindset on the Las Vegas vacation, so you enjoy it fully. Why I’m mentioning this is because, while some girls might love to spend their days shopping, going to the spas and lounging pools without worrying about standing all day, which I think is not possible with those high heels girls usually prefer. Some nice and comfortable shoes such as those at http://nicershoes.com/best-shoes-for-standing-all-day-reviews/ would definitely help. And there are others who might prefer to hang out with the boys and drink endlessly at the night clubs. So, choosing girls with the same attitude as you would help in increasing the fun quotient.

Best clubs to frequent

Make a list of the hottest and best Vegas clubs. If you know a club promoter getting into the club is easier. While Vegas has plenty of clubs to go to, not all of them are worth exploring. Some good clubs include Marquee at The Cosmopolitan, Tao in Venetian, Hakkasan at MGM and The Cromwell’s Drai Nightclub.

Explore the strip

Vegas strip is a must-visit place. You get numerous hotels with each being unique. You can enjoy the conservatory and water show at Bellagio, MGM lions, Mirage volcano, and the Treasure Island Sirens. Other than the hotels, you can enjoy the people in the area more. And heels are a sincere no, no to visit the strip. A sensible pair of flats would be good. In fact, the extent of exploring you need to do requires more sturdy shoes like parkour shoes, so you avoid ending the day with blisters and not being able to enjoy the night jaunts.

Shopping

This pastime is definitely one that all girls favor and Las Vegas is brimming with shopping spots. The shops at Grand Canal at Venetian, Forum shops present in Caesar’s Palace and City Center’s Crystals, Wynn Esplande and Bellagio Via are great for ritzy shopping. For normal shopping, the Miracle Mile stores at Planet Hollywood are good.

To say the truth, Vegas is not a place that you see only once in your lifetime. The ever-changing place should be explored as often as you can. The shows are changed often, so don’t be surprised if you can’t see Aladdin, which has now become Planet Hollywood or the roller coaster on Stratosphere, which is not there now.

Safety tips for nightclub visit

Frequenting a nightclub is undoubtedly great fun. You can mingle with people and burn off all your worries and some calories on the dance floor. Partying all night may be the best thing that you can have after a long and harrowing workweek, but at the same time you shouldn’t ignore the fact that a nightclub also poses some amount of danger with its frenetic and confusing environment.

Unfortunately, not everyone coming to the club has partying in his mind. If your stars are not aligned right, you may meet a gal or guy who on the outside my look a good person but may have more things on mind than what you had bargained for. So here are some tips to make your night jaunts safer

Safe drinking

There have been several incidences of date-rape medicines being slipped into drinks. Many people contend that it is their most feared thing about going to a nightclub. Well, you can keep yourself safe by

  • Not leaving your drink unattended and covering it with your palm, while you’re in crowded places.
  • Don’t accept a drink from anyone and make sure you see the bartender pouring your drink before you accept it
  • And don’t share your drink with a person you’ve just lit upon
  • And don’t ever think of accepting any of the so-called harmless party drugs, especially from strangers.

If in spite of the above precautions, you do end up having your drink spiked, you will not realize it until the effects start showing. You should be aware about your mental and physical state. If you feel drowsiness, nausea, dizziness, loss of coordination, disorientation, slow in reaction, mental confusion, and being less inhibited than usual, you need to get help from the staff at the nightclub immediately.

Driving home

Drinking and driving don’t gel well together. If you plan to drive back on your own, make sure you don’t consume too much alcohol. Having proper led light bars, click here, installed on you vehicle also help in better visibility while driving at nighttime. Continue reading

Useful Things To Bring On A Fishing Trip

Hi guys! So, last week I went to the UK to do some promotions, and I got the day of, so I decided to go fishing! Here is some advice if you ever want to try it out!

There are a number of useful things that one is able to bring with them on the trip to a fishing spot to make their time at that place more enjoyable. Though the main activity that will take place on that occasion is fishing, it does not mean that there is nothing else to be done during that time. As a matter of fact there are quite a number of alternative activities that one can take part at the same time as going fishing in order to pass the time as they wait for the fish to bite. I remember when I used to go fishing with my sister, she would often study for her http://nailtechnicianschools.net/ online nail technician school degree. And I used to listen to some awesome tunes or read comics and make fun of her!

Well now she’s got a great job (click here to see just how great), so I guess I’m not laughing anymore! Anyway, going out to a fishing spot requires patience and some people may need to have other things to do in order to distract them from the potential boredom that they face during such trips. This is especially true for people who may be going fishing for the first time. Apart from ensuring that one is not too bored during a fishing trip, there are also a number of things that can be brought along for the trip for sake of convenience and to make some activities a little bit easier to handle. One does not simply jump in to a boat and go out and catch some fish and it is essential that one makes notes of the things that they might need depending on the type of fishing trip they are planning on embarking on.

Some of the items that may prove useful on a fishing trip can include commodities such as:

  1. An Extra Icebox

Though it may seem like a normal thing to bring along, most individuals forget the fact that depending on the amount of fish they are able to catch, they might need a place to store them for a period of time without worrying about it getting spoilt. Most people bring along just one icebox for the trip and this is usually full of other times that there is hardly any space left for any extra fish that they may catch. Seeing as how one cannot simply fill the fish inside the kayak they’re using, it would be wise to be prepared for such a predicament or keep reminding oneself not to fish beyond their storage limits.

  1. Portable Radio

As mentioned earlier, fishing requires patience and can be a strenuous exercise for individuals who are not used to staying in one place for long periods of time. The accompaniment of a portable radio is able to help with that as music allows one to pass the time in a way that does not seem too dull. Good music and scintillating conversation can go a long way in improving the overall odds of enjoying themselves during a fishing trip.

  1. A Satellite Phone

Some of the fishing spots that an individual may choose to visit could be located in areas with poor network coverage. It is best in case of emergencies for individuals to have a satellite phone with them should they require assistance and at the same time happen to be in a location with poor network coverage. A satellite phone could be the decider between getting help on time and it being too late.

What makes a nightclub successful?

Nightclubs come in different varieties and ranges. From impressive production, sound, and lighting to distinctive decor and lineup of popular DJs, you have quite a lot of factors that make some nightclubs unique, while others run of the mill. So how do you classify a nightclub as a coolest one? Here are some important qualities.

Perfect sound

The sound remains the heart and soul of a club and this is an irrefutable fact. Therefore, a clubs sound system should be on par with global standards to make it noticeable. Even if the venue is not that impressive, the top notch sounds more than makes up for the lack. A good sound system should not be too bassy or loud but be crisp and enveloping, so you can listen to the details without leaving your ears ringing.

Best talent

The artists in a club should dish out consistent fare. Some of the most popular nightclubs are well known for their splendid acts in dance music. Some best known talent on the nightclub scene include, Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Martin Garrix, Afrojack, Hardwell and more.

Aesthetics

A best venue is one that has a distinct environment. Whether it is atmospheric or luxurious, the décor should be able to transport you to another world. This is accomplished by a blend of various elements including décor, lighting, and production. Continue reading

Top London nightclubs

London is home to some of the coolest nightclubs. Brimming dance floors, late night sprees, bustling DJs and the best night scene ever are what you get at the nightclubs here. The spectacle here is an ever-changing one. Whether you are after a drunken night, sophisticated affair with celebrities or a cheesy night there’s a club for everyone. From the super elite clubs to intimate venues, here are some top nightspots you can check out in London.

Corsica studios

This is an entertainment and arts type of venue where you can see friendly and arty students in plenty. The South London venue offers two rooms with music and bar. If you fancy garage and dubstep, this is the place to hang out. The sounds here are exciting and of experimental kind.

Cargo

This venue present underneath railway arches has some amazing music range and a friendly and warm crowd. The food canteen here has some delicious fare, which you should not miss. The place provides free entry on Fridays for those who come in before 10 pm. Continue reading

My visit to Las Vegas

Las Vegas is the ultimate destination for nightclub enthusiasts. The nightclubs here are famous mostly for the celebrities that frequent them. The top quality hotels and exotic cuisine here also attract many people. But what many don’t know about Las Vegas is that it is also an exciting place to be in during broad daylight.

I discovered this to my unending delight, when I recently visited Las Vegas. The time in between, after you finish your breakfast, and before it’s time to get into those clubs, you can have a whole lot of exciting and fun filled experience here.

Exciting time

The Stratosphere Tower is a place that is just right for those who love the adrenaline rush. The Big Shot, Sky Jump, Insanity, and X Scream are all set to get your adrenaline going at jet speed. If you’re still not satisfied with the excitement, a ride on the roller coaster that races at 67 mph would be just your ticket to fun. The racecar track or Exotics racing on the Motor Speedway in Las Vegas are equally thrilling rides to sample here. Continue reading

Tips to dress right for nightclub

Although a nightclub is a place where you’re supposed to let you hair down and be as you wish to be, the nightclub environment is something that requires the due diligence. Well, so it is not a high flying club like a private club, supper club or for that matter a golf club, but still a night club too needs some kind of decorum, So here are some useful tips for your night club outing

The right clothes

By the right clothes, I don’t mean that new suit you had bought recently and are longing to show off. A nightclub is where you dance endlessly well into the night, and with so much activity going on you’re bound to get sweaty.

Donning your best outfit, even if it cost you a bomb is not necessary as, to be frank, the dimmed lights do not give much credence to what you wear. And with the jostling that happens, you might even get your dress stained by a spilled drink.

Black is out

While black is the evergreen color to wear, this is not so in case of nightclubs. Most clubs have black lights only under which your dress would look brownish, dull, and sometimes even unattractive. And then, there’s the dandruff to give you away.

Gray is the popular color that hides the sweat, while blue is a color that is meant for nighttime. My cousin, a gorgeous blonde, prefers blue dresses and looks stunning in them. She however contends that her sewing skills and her splendid serger make her look appealing rather than the color. She designs and makes her own clothes and they are awesome so I’d to agree with her. Continue reading

Dancing tips for the introvert

The mere mention of nightclubs brings to mind dancing all night until dawn. Yes, dancing is symbolic with nightclubs. But have you noticed some of those who frequent night clubs, instead of taking their place on the dance stage, simply lounge against a wall and keep staring? Well, I see quite a few such people and I’d think that they probably hate dancing and had been dragged to the club unwillingly by their partner.

But there are some who stay so because they actually don’t know how to dance. Yes, it’s true. Some people are insecure to the extent they develop all kinds of crazy theories on why they shouldn’t dance like, ‘everyone’s going to laugh at me’ or ‘no one would dance with me’ or the common, ‘I’m going to look stupid making the moves’.

Well! All these are utter gibberish and just fabrications of a weak mind. Since dancing is inescapable part of your social life, you need to make the effort to be at least passable as a dancer. And the basics are not so hard to learn. So here are some tips for those who shun dancing because of being too self-conscious.

Basic movements

The basic moves that let you blend with the others dancing is sufficient at the beginning. So you need not try to look like an ace at it.

General tastes

Men and women don’t have the same standards as to what constitutes a good enough dancer. Guys think dancing is to show off and try to outdo the other skilled dancers. For men, a typical dancer is one who does gymnastic moves, flips, or using the popping and locking routine. For women, a guy who is confident, comfortable and having fun at it is a good one.

This is the general mindset and I’m not talking about the picky ones. Once I had a girlfriend who would go only for the muscled and break dance type of guys. I even tried to impress her by taking up regular workouts at the gym. Nowadays, I continue with my workouts not at the gym, but with my superb power racks, which keeps me fit and toned.
