A Combination Of A Pub And A Club Provides The Best Of Both Worlds
The name of this website, PubClub.com, comes from combining what a lot of people around the world do when it comes to nightlife. They go to a pub before going off to the club.
But it is the combination of the two that, at least for me, makes for the perfect singles bar.
They can be known by several basic names – bar, restaurant/bar, mini-club – but I prefer to file them under a category I call a pubclub. That is because they are both a pub and a club.
They are a pub because they are casual in dress code and attitude, don’t usually have cover charges and never those long and impossible lines associated with nightclubs, and drinks are reasonability priced.
Yet they also have elements of a club, and that is dancing, flashing lights and music.
They also have a crowd that is perfect for all singles people, professionals in the age ranges of early 20s to late 40s.
Why A Pubclub Combination Is The Best Type Of Bar For Singles:
1.) The crowd is mostly professional singles in the age ranges of early 20s to late 40s, the prime age range for the top mingling opportunities.
2.) These bars have a bar area, where you can sit or lean and start conversations, as well as a dance area. So you get the best of both bar worlds.
3.) You can actually talk to people in these bars. The noise is not too loud to carry on a conversation, one of my pet peeves about nightclubs.
4.) There’s both a bar and dance area, which means you can start a conversation at the bar and continue it on the dance floor, then go back to the bar and work on your closing technique.
5.) The music is background, not the focal point. These places have either a DJ or a band, but they are just there to provide tunes, not to dominate the scene.
Personally, I prefer a DJ. It’s not that I don’t like bands – quite the opposite is true – but in a pubclub a DJ is better for mingling because watching the band can be distracting and kill conversations. Plus, a band always has its groupies and from a singe guy’s standpoint, it’s often hard to tell which girls are with the and are the “regular” bar patrons.
I do have a simple way of figuring this out, tho: if they are mouthing the words to original songs, then they are with the band. How else would they know the words unless they were dating the drummer, guitarist, singer, etc.
