By admin on 30th September 2017

Leicester has an absolutely awesome club scene – as you’ve probably gathered if you’ve just hit your first year at De Montfort University or Leicester University. From the Student Union bars to the loud and vibrant nightlife at venues such as Club Republic, Mosh, Venom and Ghost, they’ve all got some great nights out just waiting for you to enjoy. But, after all the excitement of Freshers’ Week has died down and you’re left without an itinerary of where to go and what to do next – and you’re still to make a solid group of friends like most people at this point in their first year – you might be wondering where’s good to go and what’s best to do. If clubbing is quite new to you and you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by just how massive the party scene is here in Leicester, check out a few of our handy hints and tips on dos and don’ts when out clubbing – all designed to help get you through the night safely and in one piece! Some must dos when clubbing in Leicester Go in a group, because there’s always safety in numbers. Make sure someone knows where you are. Sort out your transport before it comes to the end of the night, as there’s nothing worse than waiting in a queue at a taxi rank! And make sure you have the money for a cab home! Keep essential information on you, such as bus times etc.. Pace yourself on the drinks. Perhaps consider having a glass of water in between to ensure you enjoy the whole night and don’t spend half of it with your head down the loo!

Have a hefty glass of water before your head hits the pillow at the end of the night – it’ll help ward off the banging head in the morning, we promise! Make the most of it – you’re only young once, so enjoy! Some clubbing definitely don’ts! Get so drunk that you don’t know what you’re doing. Go anywhere that could be unsafe,...
