Default purgatory and Ivy Lounge...for the twenty somethings. Ladies, please tell me its not True!

Ok, I was checking out the nightlife in Dallas on youtube to get a feel of what its gonna be like when I move there and wow. Just, words can not describe the amount of duchebags in the club. Ok, is Dallas serious. I saw so many gorgous women in the club dancing with....duchebags. I'm talking ugly dudes with spiked hair, or emo looking punks who looked like they just flat ironed their hair dancing with models. Is Dallas seriously lacking in decent guys? Is this the only kind of guys gals can choose from? I mean, honestly, here in detroit 90 percent of those guys would have gotten their *ss kicked in a club coming in looking like that. Have some style. I'm just being honest, is it really that bad? If so, im not gonna have trouble what so ever pulling girls. This is ridiculous.

How can you tell they were douchebags by just watching a video?

IMO Dallas isn't much of a club city. Most decent, self respecting guys don't go to clubs to look for women. Women at clubs tend to be shallow and materialistic - and that's why you saw douchebags in whatever video you were watching.

I think its actually the other way around. Dallas is very much a club city and its because of the materialism that does exist in certain parts of the city that it is a club city. The materialistic side of Dallas comes out in spades in the clubs in Uptown and Oak Lawn. However there are some places in Knox-Henderson, Bishop Arts, and Addison where the materialism isnt so in your face.

We went to the Liars Den last Saturday night for a friends birthday and while the girls are some of the most beautiful you will see in any city, they can be pretty shallow.

Well, for starters, this one WHITE guy was being interviewed at the Ivy Lounge (probably a promotion thing for the club) and the dude kept dropping the N bomb left and right. I was like what????? Who does this dude think he is. Then from the balconies I see a bunch of guys tossing money down to the dance floor like it was a strip club. What? Lanative, just youtube dallas nightlife and you will see what i'm talking about. You dont need to have to sit down and talk to them to figure out their idiots, just watch their behavior on the videos.

Ahh. I thought it might be just a video at a club.

I dont know about the N bomb. I hear people use it more in a comradery sense than a racist sense, but I still dont like it.

As for the "rain shower" on the dance floor, Ive seen that at alot of clubs here in Dallas. Ive never seen it once in any other city outside a strip club. Its strange, but hey, free money I guess.

Its a good opprotunity to start a new trend. Go to the club and create a "hail storm". This entails bringing about $50 worth of pennies and throwing them on all the people in the club.

haha, may have to try that one LAnative.....the guy who was blowing up the N word was white though, so I really though he overstepped his boundries a bit. I'm from detroit and even the white guys here are careful about using that word.

Ew. I just watched a few seconds of the Ivy Lounge video and all I can say is clubbing sure has changed since my day! I got as far as them showing the "go-go" dancers. Hmm, usually would refer to what their doing as more of a dance in a strip bar. That goes for the clients, as well. God, I'm old!

That area of Dallas is extreme far left. That is their culture.

Try the ghost bar in victory park. Or the bars on greenville. You will find less emos and more average looking folks.

Thanks Artsyguy, my buddie who lives in Dallas also recommended clubs in greenville. He says there more down to earth there. The ones that I was checking out like Ivy and Purgetory, I think most of the people there are college kids from SMU. My buddy told me to watch out there that crowd!
