I'm in London for 2-3 weeks and was thinking of going to one of the big clubs and having a proper night out. Would be drinking a bit at home then travelling there (I'm in south London), maybe go to a pub, then to a club.

How much money would I be looking at spending, and what are some good places to go (club/dance type music).

I've been known to spend ridiculous amounts, the night can be as cheap or expensive as you want.

same as going out anywhere really, it can be as expensive as you make it. budget between £3.80 and 4.20 a drink, £10-20 for entry. £20 normally does me for a quick few drinks after work, I've spent about £60 before plus a taxi on top which was £100 split between a few of us..

Any club recommendations? I'm 20, a student, so somewhere with a similar crowd would be cool.

3.80-4.20 a drink and 10-20 for entry is going out anywhere? Where on earth do you go out? :confused:

I think you can get in to some places for £5ish, or even free depending on when you go.

Why don't you just stay in your hotel room and browse TSR without any interruptions for 2-3 weeks!? I've always wanted to do that.. :cool:

When I've been to London the last few times, I usually spend £50-£70.

Anywhere on brick lane... Matter - if you like the soulless. Fabric - only on a friday if you want to gamble with your own mortality, or a saturday if you want to enjoy it.

all the legend places have gone tbh - the end. turnmills. astoria

You need to factor in whether he is good looking enough to pull or will have to pay for sex. :yep:

Nah London prossies are crap. But one greeted me and asked how my day was then she was like "Do you want to do some business?". And I was like "errrr :o: ".

I guess he should also take into account that he could be on the phone to one of those phone sex operators that you see in the adverts at night. Those can cost a fortune (I'm not speaking from experience or anything). :ninja:

I was once asked if I wanted business by a prostitute as well. She was hideous and I told her she would have to pay me if she wanted sex. She was not impressed and I was met with expletives. :tongue:

Depends on the type of club, if you're music focused, Fabric, Ministry or Matter are the obvious choces. £15 entry, £4 a beer, £8 double mixer.

More pretentious places like Crystal, Paper, Pangaea, Movida; £20 entry, £5 a beer, £10+ double mixer.

That's your standard central London set up unless Shoreditch is on your mind.
