I think the most expensive night out ever for me was about £30-35, from what I remember.

Seriously? How? Last night totalled over £100. fairly average for a London night out. 

 

I spent an hour and a half chatting with the comedian Vic Reeves and his wife Nancy on the train back last night. I made them laugh when I mocked some idiots taking selfies with them, turns out he hates that shit. So he invited me over to sit with them. Really interesting conversation - I think. I was drunk. He was slurring too though, so it was all good. His wife took my number, and in the new year he promised to come talk to my students about the media where I work. That'd be fucking awesome - the guy has been there and done everything. Good mates with the Gallagher brothers, had a number one, been dragged through the mud by the tabloids. So many stories.

Well first of all, by not going out in London :P I had a pub crawl there a month or so back, but with only three of us doing rounds it was only about £30.

At uni, we generally never did rounds on nights out. I'd spend about £20-£25, including club entry. But we never got a taxi and I rarely ever get any food on the way home, so virtually all of that was on alcohol. I never went out with the intention of spending less than x amount, I just didn't have particularly expensive night out habits.

But like even in my home town a £60 night is an impressive underspend. :P

I need what can varyingly be described as an impressive, depressing or concerning amount of drink. I also tend to go for the nicest stuff on offer. There'll always be some red wine in there, always some shots, I'll go back to my lover whisky but it's always doubles of JD or if my pallet is suitably cleaned I'll have a scotch at some point. Or I'll just make the bar staff make me Old Fashioned's, which normally come to £7-£11 each depending on the quantities and qualities of the ingredients they have to hand.

You're way more of a connoisseur than I am. A few pints of cider or beer in predrinks, and then a few double vodka red bulls or mojitos in the club. Or preferably, more pints in the pub and no club. That'll do me :happy:

See we always get a bottle of JD for predrinks, so depending on the shop that's £7-£14 each (me and my friend split it just us two) and if we do go to the pub, that's where I get the wine. hate pints on bloating and pissing principle, plus I've found that walking around with a glass of wine becomes a talking point, because I tend to be the only person in any given place with wine. Then I refuse to go on a night out without going to a club, and I refuse to be in a club without a drink in hand. It just feels right. End up in the smoking area or seated area talking to strangers, and that process tends to speed up drinking. Plus then there is at least £10 taxi and maybe a bite to eat, so yeah. Costs escalate.

My cheapest night I managed to spend absolutely nothing. Most I've ever spent is 25 quid and that was because everyone else in the taxi back had no money at all. So that's five quid you'll never see again despite everyone promising theyll pay you back.

The range of drinks I like is pretty limited. I like cider, but don't really drink it any more. I like beer, though not always the ones you find in pubs. The only spirit/mixer combo I enjoy is vodka red bull, but it's hardly a brilliant drink. I would say mojitos are my favourite cocktails, but I've note really tried enough cocktails to know. I hate wine and spirits. I'm not a big fan of nightclubs (dancing + the music they play + entrance fee + more expensive...). Some can be decent, but I'll take them or leave them. That being said, if I do go to one, I'll constantly have a drink. I like to drink fairly constantly throughout the whole night. My mate used to drink loads in predrinks and have next to nothing in the club. But I don't particularly like drinking huge amounts in a short space of time. Also, if I'm gonna be dancing to terrible club music, I need to constantly ply myself with alcohol, so there's that.

I almost never dance in clubs though - unless it's a rock/indie club. I dart between the bar, the seats and the smoking area. Every so often some smashing song will come on (Ride Wit Me; Ignition; Bump 'n Grind; any standard 1.30am pop rock sing along song) and I'll head straight to the centre of the action, but clubs are just a place for meeting people. My friends and I have the same mindset; we arrive together, split up, occasionally bump into each other during the night and get a drink to celebrate, but mostly go off chatting.

I have a question. 

I recently turned 21, and the only times I've had a proper drink was at local shows.
But now that I don't attend shows anymore, I'm finding it difficult to just show up to a bar by myself and have a drink. 
Is it weird for a girl to just walk into a random bar and have a beer by herself? I don't have any friends to pub crawl with  :ermm:

I used to do that long ago and times have changed but if you want, do it, just be aware that you will probably get hit on quite a bit since you're alone. Oh, and don't read a book. :)

Yeah that's what bothers me the most. I don't mind being hit on, but I don't want people thinking that I'm only there to take someone home. 
It also bums me out seeing everyone else having a good time. 

There should be a bar that we can keep to ourselves and read books :lol: like starbucks but with long islands.

Yeah, you shouldn't have to worry about going to a bar alone, if we lived in a perfect world. But sadly I assume most men would automatically consider you a target to be preyed upon, depending on the type of place. It sucks. So unless you're OK with dealing with that, good luck!
