Doormen, ID Checks And, Of Course, The Priority Of Hot Girls Going Clubbing
If you’ve ever wondered why nightclubs – as opposed to bars or pubs – always seem to have lines outside of them, we have a few answers to the question.
And yes, that’s plural as in answers, not answer. That’s because there are potentially several reasons and PubClub.com outlines the five most common ones here.
1.) The Lines Depend On The Club
In big ones, like Las Vegas, there’s different entrances, different levels of people entering (some may have reserved VIP tables) and certainly girls get priority, and it takes a while to sort it all out and thus, there are often long lines.
Plus, the bouncers must also take time to deal with people coming up to the front of the line, asking questions, trying to work their way around the line, etc.
2.) Checking ID’s & The Dress Code In Clubs
Clubs are often very careful about checking IDs, because they can get fined or even shut down if they allow minors into the bar. This may take a couple of minutes per person. On top of this, the bouncers may be checking people’s attire to see if they fit the club’s dress code.
3.) Hot Girls Get Priority In Clubs
This is a simple fact of life – good-looking girls are going to get invited to the front of the line, sometimes pulled out of the line, and in places like Vegas even offered to join men at VIP tables where they will get free drinks. (The tradeoff to this is that they have to hang out with men who can’t get girls on their own!).
Getting the girls in takes time, takes up more space in the club and results in a longer, slower line.
4.) Fake Lines In Clubs
Let’s face it, some nightclubs create artificial lines to make it appear to passers-by as if it’s a happening place. PubClub.com very much dislikes this policy. Few nightclub experiences are more frustrating then to wait in a line, pay a high cover charge, then get inside to discover the place is practically empty. The best way to avoid this is to avoid the club. And feel fee to post any clubs doing this policy on the comments section of this article.
5.) Slow Doormen/Bad Management In Clubs
Sometimes, the problem is the doormen themselves. Some know they have power over customers and like to use it to feed their egos. They purposely take their time to build the drama. Poor management allows this to happen; again, post any clubs with ego-filled doormen and bad management in the comments section of this article.
This being said, the bouncers at Vegas nightclubs are remarkably friendly. They are smart enough to know to avoid any confrontations for several reasons. One, it could chase away people and two, any unnecessary delays make the wait time even longer for other barflies.
BONUS: Have Patience When Getting Into A Nightclub
The best way to sidestep these issues is to be patient. Don’t complain – it won’t help anyway – and when you finally get to the doorman be polite. Hand him your ID, be silent, and say “thank you” when he hands it back to you.
Anything else will delay your entrance to the club – causing a longer, slower-moving line for others – and may even result in you getting sent back out onto the street.
Once inside, then decide if the club is worth going back to another time.
