    If you or a friend wants to get drunk, then go with this advice. No reason to spend more than $20-$30 if you do it this way.

    As an Irish man, I can only assume this is a trick question.

    Whenever you're ready to cut loose.

    If you're late, everyone else will be too drunk to notice anyway.

    Good music.

    The only way to find out is to go to them and give them a test run for yourself.

    - How much money is reasonable to expect to spend (as a non drinker and as a moderate drinker)
    - What is typically a reasonable time to arrive
    - What separates a bad-ass nightclub from an okay one
    - How the hell do you find one you'll enjoy going to?

    If anyone lives in Atlanta/knows the area, that's where I'll be at. For a Collective Soul concert
    I hope the concert is fun! I live in Atlanta and while the club scene is not mine.. I work with people who go a lot and listen to them talk about it.

    I looked up where the concert is and the club that I always hear mentioned is Opera, it's 2.4 miles from your concert. I'd bring at least $150, just to have it if you need it. Cabs here are expensive and I wouldn't take MARTA after 10 PM. There are MARTA cops.. but I'd stick to cabs.

    As to when to arrive, I know most of the people I work with don't get there until 10 or 11, they also drink before hand to save money.

    I've never been to a club so I can't answer those other questions.

    The ways you guys describe it, clubs seem pretty depressing places - half-drunk people, dangerous areas, creepy people (thus don't leave drinks unattended), gold-digging mentality (men buy you drinks), etc.

    Except the obvious reason of preying on people in some way, what other reason do people without Se have to frequent these kinds of nightclubs?

    I am curious.

    From an NF who isn't trying to pick someone up: Loneliness. Wanting to talk to someone. The hope that you will meet someone interesting (though you know it isn't likely to happen).

    Pubs and clubs, while rhyming, I feel that's where the similarity ends.

    I think people go to clubs to let loose and be someone they either aren't all the time or someone different all together. It's probably freeing and honestly a lot of fun for some. Like I said, they're not my scene. I like to be able to hear who I'm talking to and dancing usually annoys me.

    Yeah, I guess so. I don't really have nightclubs here so much. I was inserting "bars" for it.

    I go to nightclubs to cut loose. There are few things I find more fulfilling and liberating then loosing myself to the beat and tempo of music coursing through my body and bouncing in my brain.

    Haha! I never thought that being Irish would actually benefit me in answering a question.

    Disclosure: My town is one long street, of about eighty houses. There are eight pubs on this street. Some stereotypes exist for a reason.

    Pubs are a social experience. They just like to hang out, drink a few beers, and talk about the craic. Often time, it will also be accompanied by a soccer match. Most pubs over here get cable television on their premises solely for this purpose, to improve business.

    Yes, I can see that.

    I think people go to pubs and bars to be around others and to laugh.. camaraderie.. or to be alone amid people. I think people to to clubs to 'move' and experience carnality in a socially acceptable form. To focus on now, more than they're able to typically. Or something else altogether.

    It's a good time to arrive in the afternoon.

    What separates a bad ass night club from an okay one is whether you and your INFP are there or not!

    Idk. Search.
    Uhh...I think you're joking but I'm not entirely sure, so if you're serious, it's a terrible idea to bring anything remotely close to 300$, because you are very likely to spend it or lose it. Bring enough for cover times a few places (can probably find out in advance, 5-10$ around here but not sure about Atlanta) and a few drinks, and enough extra cash to cab home whether or not you plan to use it. Drinks are very overpriced in clubs, again not sure about Atlanta but 10-15$ here on average - much much better to predrink if you can manage it. Even drinking at a pub will often be much cheaper than the club, depending on the exact places. Drinking enough to get drunk at club prices will bankrupt you pretty quickly, go nuts if you like to burn money though, I guess.

    Best time to arrive is usually around 11-midnight, again depends on the nightlife culture in the area, I suppose.

    Finding one you like is usually a gamble, you generally have to go in and check it out which is why it's easier if you go for places with cheap cover.
