Make sure when you’re planning a big night out (or even if the night out happens unexpectedly) that you heed our advice for a successful night out! The Do’s and Don’ts, starting with the don’ts!

  • DONT wear high heels – no one looks good after a few beers falling off 3 inch heels, they’re just not practical, it’s all about the thongs and kicks!
  • DONT ever hand over your credit card to buy shots for everyone at the bar – Tequila is everyones nemesis and no-ones friend!
  • DONT think it’s a good idea to get a dirty kebab after double digit beers, and proceed to drop it down yourself while trying to pick up, not a good look!
  • DONT take up smoking cause “you’ve had a drink” it’s not cool kids.
  • DONT steal a bike to get home, and end up head first in a hedge along the way, karma guys karma.
  • DONT Drunk text ! You’ll regret it in the morning (speaking from experience) those texts can’t be reversed.
  • DONT share a taxi home with strangers or ex work colleagues, you could end up waking up to them the next morning – Arhhhh.
  • DONT think peeing in the street is ok … it’s not ever, always use the toilet before leaving the house or nightclub 😉
  • DONT mix drinks, although vodka, tequila , and rum surprise sounds like a good idea at the bar trust me your stomach will hate you later.

  • DO leave the night club before the “dance off” begins, you’re not cool. No matter what your so called friends say you don’t have the moves.
  • DO go home the first time it crosses your mind, not at 3.30am when you’re getting thrown out of a club.
  • DO make sure you have enough money for a taxi ride home, you’re not going to make it on your bike without injury.
  • DO take a jacket, no matter how nice you think you look without one it’s going to be cold in the early hours of the morning.
  • DO eat a good meal before you go out, a piece of toast doesn’t count. Something more along the steak and chips line.
  • DO go home alone, you’ll be happier when you wake up.
  • DO take lots of photographs this will help you piece the night together the next day.
  • DO delete anyones phone number from your phone that you most definitely do not want to drunk call, do this before your first drink!
  • DO have a large glass of water before passing out in your bed… you’ll thank me tomorrow!
