15 defining characteristics of a local Irish nightclub

<3 local the club.

LOCAL NIGHTCLUBS ARE only there so you don’t have to go to town. They all seem to be the same, but sure what choice have you?

1. The floor is constantly sticky

Local nightclubs do not entertain the idea of a mop. Little is known of the substances creating the adhesive, and for this, we are all better off.

2. It has had about 19 different names, and is constantly relaunching

The name almost always sounds like it was picked off the Periodic table or ripped off an old Apprentice team.

Fusion, Zinc, Eclipse, Pure, Genesis, Kinetic, Magna, Velocity… Team or nightclub?

3. It can be found beside an actual pub or part of a hotel

It’s a party in the back, business in the front.

4. Being a culchie is almost encouraged

You’re not allowed wear runners in a city nightclub, but go to your local and you get freebies in exchange.
