Oh I understand what you're saying and I go to all types of clubs. I was just pointing out that irregardless of the type, nightclubs in general, hip hop or not, arent exactly monasteries.

Other than that, we're pretty much on the same page. You say...

.....that's why I'm wondering why ATL is so much of a clear cut "winner" over anywhere else to seemingly most people.

I know it is that's why I made the thread

If you honestly think every last hip hop club scene is the same and consist of the things you mentioned maybe you should go to hip hop clubs in different cities. It is not all the same. I have never heard Techno music in clubs in Florida like I do all the time in Detroit. I would not be able to go to clubs in Detroit and see Ludacris, Lloyd, TI and many other celebs like you could in ATL. Most southern cities play their own music only, whereas here they play everybody, every regions, music. Food differs from city to city as well. I highly doubt you will get the same crowd either. Those are just some differences I noticed.

Besides I see no complaints for threads of other genres (house, techno, country etc) club/bar scenes on here, so why for hip hop???

From my experience Dallas, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Atlanta are all pretty great. I've been to DC and Houston but haven't partied in either, so I can't say but I've heard good things about DC for sure. Miami is another strong favorite, but hip hop takes a back seat for the most part.

Hip/hop clubs are for kids, for the most part, but Jay-Z's 40/40 club in AC is supposed to be the best.

You can't be serious.

Nelly isn't some Johnny-come-lately artist at this point like Drake, he is VERY well established. Nelly has MILLIONS of record sales, while Drake on the other hand is just happy to have reached platinum status. The two cannot be mentioned in the same breath, are you kidding me?
