Majority of my male friends tell me they wish they had the “power” girls have when they go out to the bars and clubs. What does this mean? It means when they go out as a male they see all the females having a better time than them. Through their eyes the situation goes like this: girls get to cut in the front of the line, pay no cover charge, and wear anything they want. Once inside they get free drinks all night because guys offer to pay, they dance and do whatever they want, and they always get invited to the bottle service area for free. While half of this is true on a good night, the other 90% of nights at the bar don’t turn out that way.
It is true that most of the time cute girls don’t have to wait in line to get inside of the club and don’t have a strict dress code like the boys, they just have to look good. When you are showing a little skin and freezing in your mini skirt and sequin tank, generally security will notice you and pull you forward. But typically once the bouncer tells you to cut in front of the line there is a non-enthusiastic door girl that says “Fifteen dollars ladies,” and does not care if you took three hours to get ready and you’re the sexiest girl in the whole place. Truth of the matter is she will probably charge you more because you are pretty and got to cut the line.
Now once we bypass all the obstacles outside; inside the establishment is a whole other beast to conquer. Sure, guys will offer to buy you drinks and I respect the courage and self-confidence that some have to muster up to even talk to a girl. But don’t offer or start the conversation in a creepy way please. If a guy is too drunk already it will automatically be a fail. From personal experience, getting free drinks from guys is a bonus but only about half the time. The other 50% of the times have not gone…Continue
Getting into a nightclub can be tough—especially if you are a man. Obstacles seem insurmountable as the bouncer denies you because you don’t have a second form of ID, you don’t meet dress code, or it’s just a flat-out “no”. You might even have bottle service and get the “Denied Access” stamp on your forehead. So what’s the deal and how can you get around it?
1. It’s a fact of life that the entertainment industry revolves around women. How do clubs promote events? They have flyers with a beautiful woman or even a team of women as promoters. The best thing you guys can do for yourselves is to bring women with you when you go out. If there are four guys, have at least four girls! When the bouncer sees that you are bringing in women, they will wave you in—passed a big line of solo dudes.
2. You also need to break up the numbers. Walking to the front of the line with six guys is going to get you the “no-go” shake of the head. By coming in smaller parties (with girls of course), you look less intimidating and, therefore, less likely to start testosterone-driven drama.
3. Leave the t-shirt and tennis shoes at your bachelor pad! The strategy here is to not give the bouncer an excuse to boot you out. Wear a nice, ironed, collared shirt and some nice loafers. You may not like it but an itchy collar is better than a soar bottom because you spent the night sitting on the curb since no club would let you in! And please, please, please ditch the baseball cap! No quality club will let you in with it—guaranteed! And no, you are most likely not Tom Brady so you will not get away with it! If you need some more positive encouragement: women are attracted to men who dress well. This shows confidence and gives the impression that you are successful. Both are extremely attractive!
4. My last piece of advice is to stay polite. If you walk up to the bouncer with an attitude, he is not going to be very…Continue
