What is the attraction of a bar/club?

I've been to a few and I don't know if it's just me. But really, why go?

  • Once upon a time when I was young, single and had no children I went out with friends on a pretty regular basis. We lived in a pretty small town and there wasn't much to do on the weekends. There wasn't much drinking, but there was a lot of dancing!
    My husband and I go out to a local Martini club once or twice a year with a group of is usually celebrating something and that is the grownup "go to" place.

    IDK, I think I outgrew it. Other things became more important.

  • Well it depends on the person, people go for all different reasons........when I was young I clubbed thurs fri sat and sun night for 5 years and I loved to get out socialize and dance all night with my best friend. never once did we leave with a man, sleep with any man from a club, we went to have fun. Many people use them as pick up joints, a release for there normal life........there are countless reasons people like them and they arent all seedy reasons....since I have been married (9 years) a rarely clubbed, a few times with my SIL and went for the same reasons I always did since I have had my daughter she is 3.5 I have been clubbing once and that was when I was away for the weekend, my first time away from her ever and that was about 6 mths ago.

  • I don't see that it is anything so cool. I don't waste my time at them---the last time I went to a bar I was in college ,with my future husband and it was...okay. Nothing special. And there are too many loud drunks. Not an attractive thing.There is a certain kind of crowd that likes to hang our at bars and I'm not a part of that scene. That's not me.

  • Personally, I'll go with my MIL and FIL to a small bar that is owned by there friend. It's for birthdays, and that's pretty much it. I never have gone otherwise.

  • I believe the answer is picking up people at last call for drunken sex that will be regretted the next morning.

  • I have no idea. The few times I've been it was because my DH wanted to go with another couple. For me, it was a huge waste of time and money. The longer people drank they got aggressive or stupid. It was fights and drunk girls dancing and grinding on each other while the men watched.

  • I just like hanging out with my friends or my husband and having a few drinks and people watching, listening to music, or sometimes we go to a karaoke bar. I haven't been drunk in a long time, but i think a couple of drinks and just hanging out with adult company is fine.
