    It isn't even remotely fun. I mean I used to use it as an opportunity to go out and hear cutting edge music, but it just isn't there. Pretty much the same House/Dnb/Soul/garage by numbers pretty much everywhere - and thats in the more underground venues. You would think wouldn't you that socialising in this way you might meet new people and create new networks but as far as I can see all 'town' at night has become now is one big group photo opp; endless circles of foreign students snapping away not really having a clue what music is played (you could play Beethoven and they'd still turn up for the shots and the group selfie).

    But even the people that actually supposedly enjoy this routine actually dont. Walk around at 5 am and its just people shouting in to phones minus their shoes or people screaming at the police or getting in arguments with their own group. Why does everything have to be on a Fri night anyway its not like large numbers of people dont work weekends these days. Yet the only club nights of any description early in the week are again full of foreign students downing jagerbombs; the music again the same non-descript Calvin Harris, Avicii etc. 1993 was when rave culture was at its peak probably and thats probably when it should have died.

    Pub culture in the UK will most likely never die out... however the club routine is statistically calming down, fewer people going out, drinking to less excess than roughly 10 years ago.

    well it's become almost a right of passage and so club owners are making millions a year out of it so it won't stop until the cash stop but it is slowing down compared to a decade ago but a lot is down to expense and regulations that just didn't exist a decade ago

    In your opinion. Many others do enjoy it. Hence they still go.

    People like to socialise and have fun. You shouldn't judge whether someone enjoys going out based on what behaviour you've seen in some people who do go out
