    I went into a club once... I stayed for about five minutes. I'm in no hurry to go back.

    MBTIc company excepted, I hope. However, I won't disagree completely. After having spent some considerable time in bars in my 20s, I've met some really interesting and fun people, and also some of the sorriest excuses for human beings you'll find around.

    I like lounge-y bars where you can chill out in the corner on a comfy couch. Any place where I have to yell in order to be heard is out.

    I've never been to a bar or a club, where do I vote?

    Ditto.

    Basically, if it's possible to sit somewhere and have intimate conversation without being bothered, that's okay. But the bar and club "scene" tends to be loud and crowded, so it makes me want to hide under a rock.

    I was in a bar recently with my INTJ friend. It wasn't crowded at all, but it struck me that there seem to be behaviors that are acceptable in bars that aren't acceptable anywhere else--like an older man making lewd gestures at the young female bartender. Everybody laughed, but the INTJ and I just exchanged bewildered (and yeah, judgmental) glances. It made me uncomfortable. I guess I'm too uptight for most bars. Even once I have several beers in me, I am still not the kind of woman who is interested in strangers making suggestive comments or sexual gestures at me. That's when I fire up my big neon "FUCK OFF" sign.

    It's the smell and unknown aggressiveness of those around you that really get on my nerves. Especially the smell. Sometimes my relatively-unconscious sense of empathy just "feels" the mood of everyone around me, and I feel a continual "GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE" urge in the back of my mind (distinctly unconscious, but louder than normal).

    The place where we had the NC meetup was OK, but if the party happened outside that private room I probably would've found/invented a reason to leave early. A bar/lounge is fine as long as I'm blissfully ignorant of the "bar" part and as long as the "lounge" is filled with people I actually care about. The private room, OTOH, was fantastic.

    I'm pretty introverted but still like people in general.

    I can't say whether I like(d) the scene or not, I have to be in the mood.
    And I certainly couldn't do it all the time, I'd get bored.
    But it's good sometimes just to be out.

    Yep. There's a few bars here with patios which I love because you can actually hear the people you're with, and make yourself heard. My voice doesn't carry well, unless I don't want it to. *ahem*

    Yes, "volume" is always an issue, I hate having to shout constantly to be heard.

    Well I like bars, especially if there's a great beer selection. Or, if there is live (particularly acoustic) music. But am not into nightclubs where obnoxiously loud boom-chick-boom-chick DJ music is playing.
