To make sure you’re invited back to the club next week.

4. Tipping

This is what we do to show respect to a person who provided us with a service or bent the rules. For bartenders, everyone knows it’s roughly a dollar per drink (even for non-alcoholic beverages) or $2 for a complicated cocktail, maybe more, depending on how complicated your order is. But you might get faster service if you tip them big early in the night.

For the coat check, I’ve always tipped a dollar for putting it away and another when I get it back. The bouncers are there to make sure you are safe and that rules are followed. Sometimes they bend them for you and they should be compensated for that.


5. Getting drinks

We have seen bars that are five people deep eagerly awaiting a beverage. Don’t cut your way to the front! This makes people upset and has been the cause of many bar fights. Patience is one key to a great night. Waiting in line for your beverage is another great opportunity to make new friends.

As an added note, if you’re going to use a credit card, open a tab with the bartender. Observe caption below…



Just imagine if you were at work and someone came up to you and told you how to do your job. DJs absolutely hate it when people make requests. We understand that it’s your birthday or bachelor/bachelorette party, but you have to know how annoying this is.

The DJ has spent a lot of time putting their routines and their sets together. Just know that they are not going to do it for you. Leveling threats against them don’t help either. If you and your friends are going to leave if the DJ doesn’t play your song, then leave. When you’re having a good time, nobody wants to be around a cry baby.

Chances are if you treat the DJ with respect, you might end up having the greatest night ever. Just read what Griz did when the cops shut him down.

Phillip was raised on so many different genres of music, it has given him a unique perspective into the ever evolving music scene. Trance music began defining his life at the young age of 14, but thoroughly enjoys any type of music equally. He sees the music as an escape from the daily doldrums of life and says music can change a persons life in an instant pulling from his own experiences. His only goal in life is to share wonderful music with people and take electronic music to a higher plain with more accountability and creating a safer environment for his friends.
