Why are nightclubs closing?
BBC had an interesting article stating how the nightclub industry is dying in the UK. From the people I have talked to (I never attend nightclubs myself) they say a similar thing is happening in the USA.
My theory is that the traditional clubs are dying for two basic reasons:
1. The Internet
Girls no longer need to go to bars to meet guys. They can easier screen guys via texting and the Internet. And the guys that are left at the bars tend to be more vibrant and sexually aggressive by nature. This discourages many girls which reduces the number of girls who go to bars to meet guys. And, of course, this results in less guys attending which starts the death cycle of a bar.
Personally I love to attend pubs that focus more on other interests. As I am a gamer, I love a club called Nexus in Bucharest. It is a pub full of video games and traditional games. Geeky people can hang out without the loud music that prevents conversation.
