Dance club star status is waiting for you any night of the week at The Exchange
It’s the weekend and you’re craving a night dancing out on the town…What do you do from here? Let’s face it: Dance clubs can be fairly intimidating at first. To the uninitiated, going out to a dance club can often seem like work instead of play. However, The Exchange & Alibi Lounge provides you with an easy and enjoyable experience you can’t get anywhere else. In this blog, we’ll talk about the 5 steps to having a good time and living up to your dance club star status.
Step #1: Do a little research.
Not all clubs are alike. Before you take on the night downtown, do some browsing on the Web: What’s the club’s website like? Does it come off grand, extravagant, and advertising bottle service? Is it more minimal and simplistic, with not much more than an events calendar? Do you see any photos of the club’s patrons, and if so, are these people you seem like you would enjoy spending a night out with? What’s the music like? A lot of these things can tell you about the club’s overall atmosphere and vibe. At The Exchange & Alibi Lounge, you’ll find a unique vibe than anywhere else in the city – glam, hip, and authentic every evening with different music for each night. Keep it groovy on Fridays with hip hop at The Exchange where GO95.3 broadcasts live, enjoy Summer Saturdays with the best DJs playing pop, hip hop, and electronic dance, and get down on XO Sundays with more hip hop during out 18+ night. If you’re feeling the beat on a Wednesday, come join us with the 8:12 Social for some great live music. The Exchange boasts the finest sound and light equipment available in North America- the first Funktion-One EVO sound system, so the music will be jamming all night long. Once you found something that clicks, make sure you…
Step #2: Dress appropriately.
Now that you have some sense of the club’s vibe, match it with something from your wardrobe. No matter where you’re going, gloss it up a bit. Wear something that makes you feel your best while staying comfortable to get down on the dance floor, but don’t be afraid to get a little flashier than your normal attire. In fact, we require it and have a dress code that includes your best you. It’s not a bad thing to stand out, especially at the club when you should…
Step #3: Go with your besties and make new ones.
It can be a bit of a bummer going to the club by yourself. If you can find a few friends that you can take with you, do it. They will provide some comfort and provide some relief from the unknown crowds. If you can’t find anyone to tag along with, or even if you can, try to meet some new people. Introduce yourself, you can find some amazing and interesting people at the club who love to dance just as much as you do. The best part is if you had a great time the first night, which is guaranteed at The Exchange, and you decide to go back the next night, you’ll see some familiar faces making the experience that much better. Clubs are inherently social spots so don’t be afraid to take advantage. If you meet someone new, buy them, and yourself, a drink, which will help you…
Step #4: Loosen up! Dance club star should be confident!
Like you even need to be told that. The main point of a dance club is to lose yourself in the music and just have fun. All aspects of the club are designed to help you remove yourself from the dullness of your everyday routine; to let you freak out and go crazy for a night. Sometimes alcohol can give you a head start. The Exchange provides an abundance of the finest liquor and drinks at the two full bars, as well as prime bottle service for VIP guests. All of this will help you strive to do the single most important thing to having a great time at the club, which is:
Step #5: Dance.
This is what you came for and what you’re meant to do. If you’re worried about looking stupid, don’t be. You won’t look stupid, and even if you do, it wouldn’t matter. At a certain point in the night when you can feel the rhythm inside your body and might have had a drink, or three, you will realize why you’re here, and if the DJ is on point (which he or she will be if you attend any dance night at The Exchange), the music will take you over and happiness will instill. You will think about this dance night for days, even weeks to come, and ponder how soon the next weekend will arrive.
