    Got my 18th in a few weeks time and am planning to have a night out with a few mates. Haven't previously done much of the nightclub scene before so i am wondering if 9.45 is too early to go to a nightclub. I am originally planning this time because its before 10pm which means free entry and coincides with train times. If i tell my friends this will that be okay or will they think this is too early

    Don't go before 12:30.

    If you go at 11 and leave at 4 then that is 5 hours in the same ******* place. I hate it when people want to go to the club early...

    I personally prefer not to go until after midnight.

    Well if you go early as you say you get free entry which is good.
    Going early just means you stay at the nightclub for a longer time, hence more time to have fun and socialise.

    Hence I don't think going at that time is a bad thing at all.

    11 at the earliest - it'll still be quiet then. Best time is 12.30ish.

    That's far too early. Have a drinking session with your mates before you go to the club; that way you save money on drinks too. I'd say go at about 11:30, but it's up to you and if your plans mean you have to go early then there's nothing wrong with that.

    depends what you want. Personally I like going out to bars EARLY lol, like to drink steadily but still feel 'ready' by the time we go to a club. If you want it to be lively/busy when you get there, definitely don't go before 12. Perhaps 11 if it's more of a bar/club? Depends on the places though I guess.

    I would suggest if you're meeting at that time, meet at a bar. Firstly, you won't luck like lonely people. Secondly, you'll be able to socialise more before everyones wasted. And thirdly you won't be stuck in the same place all night (people are also less likely to wander off but may not necessarily happen anyway).

    Depends on the venue.
    If its a great DJ lineup then i'll probably go when it opens because i love the music. If it is the generic ****** clubs then i wouldn't want to go before 1am.

    Most clubs don't even open until about 10.30pm. Go early for the free entry on a normal week but if it's your 18th, you should really go around a few bars and pubs first! You only need 2 - 2.5 hours in a nightclub really. Another thing to consider is how bad the queues are. If it gets really bad late on, then go a bit earlier. Also, if it's a special event, make sure you get yourself and your friends on guestlist for quick entry. Normally all you have to do is ask.

    if you go there and it's not open yet, then you are probably too early.

    Depends where you live surely? Most people are saying not before 12, but the only club in my area stops letting people in at 12

    yeah 11.30 at the earliest. You've got to time it well though, if you go at 12:30 you'll probably have to queue which in the UK isn't great because it can really piss it down.

    I doubt the nightclub will even be open at 10. Well it will just be opening.
