From mastering the dice game to starting a dance revolution
Nightclubs in China can be exciting, but sometimes they can also be confusing, strange, and scary. Here are some tips on things to watch out for and how to make it a night to remember.
1. Dress To Impress (But Also Not To Sweat)
It’s Friday evening. You’re looking to dress to impress, but before you do, remember one thing. When you look in the mirror at home you may think you look like James Bond in your suit, but one hour later in the club, when you are dripping with sweat, you might not feel so much like 007.
Dress to impress, but also not to sweat. A t-shirt and shorts might not woo the ladies as much, but at least you won’t be a sweaty mess for the rest of the night.
2. Jackie Daniel? Joe’s Quavers?
There is a lot of fake alcohol sold in nightclubs and unfortunately the difference can be hard to spot, especially after a few drinks under strobe lights and heavy music. One thing for sure is that you will feel the difference the next morning.
Some bottles come with serial numbers. Many of the more famous brands have very particular shapes and markings. Also, if you are offered an unfamiliar brand, be wary. All of these can be checked with a quick online. If still in doubt, then stick to beer.
3. Live By The Dice, Die By The Dice
The dice game revolves around bluffing and gambling on the number of dice. You lose, you drink. Even if you don’t enjoy it then learn for self-defense, as every now and then you will find yourself playing it somehow.
You will often find the waitresses will invite you to play, but don’t be fooled by their shy demeanor or tiny stature. Playing this game is part of their job. They do it every night. It’s safe to assume they’ve learned to become fairly good at it or they would be in hospital with liver failure by now, but if you underestimate them you might be. If you have to play then find drunken locals or naive foreigners to join you and make sure your turn is immediately after theirs.
