“I was in a bar the other night, hopping from barstool to barstool, trying to get lucky, but there wasn’t any gum under any of them.” – American comedian, Emo Phillip
Interesting people go to bars. Let me stress that. A lot of interesting people go to bars, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I’d rather strike up a conversation with someone at a bar who’s interesting rather than someone who’s dull.
However, if you’re going to drop however much money on round after round of drinks, it pays to know what you’ll be getting yourself into before leaving the house – that way you’re not paying a ton of money for an experience you’ll hate and you’ll be able to enjoy the atmosphere a bit more.
As we all know, there are a ton of different types of bars out there. A lot of them are pretty self explanatory, but generally speaking, they all have a different aura to them. The walls may be different, the people may be different, and sometimes even the drinks may be completely different. One time, a while back, I paid a $25 cover to get into a nightclub in New York City on a whim, and they didn’t even have my favorite beer. Needless to say, I wasn’t happy. Rookie mistake.
To avoid these types of scenarios, here’s a detailed list of 7 types of bars and how to prepare for them properly, mentally and physically, before leaving the house. Allow yourself to get in the mindset for the evening, that way you’ll be able to have a good time.
