7 Types of Weird Behavior In Kenyan Clubs That Need to Stop
A night out in Kenyan clubs
Nairobi is a party city; weekends are usually bustling with activity. There are many, new, amazing clubs; almost opened on a monthly basis. As much as it seems like all glamour and glitz, spending a night out always exposes you to weird behavior that leaves you astonished; sometimes it’s the waiters, other instances it’s the crowd, or it could be the bouncers. However, it all depends with the kind of clubs you go to. There are a few select clubs that never put any effort into making the customer experience a nice one. Most of the clubs, however, have now learnt that clubs need to be as safe and ambient as your home; if not more. Here are shady behaviors that happen in clubs.
1. That guy or girl who does not know how to contain their drink
Many Kenyans go to the club to have a good time and enjoy themselves, but a few go to test their alcohol limits. There is always that one guy who tends to drink to a stupor and begins to misbehave or even start fights. Luckily, clubs are investing heavily in security and such incidents are now rare. Never imbibe more than you can handle, you might find yourself trending the next day.
2. That one person who loves staring
There is usually that one guy or girl that will stare at you the whole night for absolutely no reason.
3. That stranger who tries to force a dance on you
It’s typical in some clubs to find someone who will try to force a dance on you. No one wants to dance with strangers. First get to know someone, then the next time, ask him or her for a dance – politely.
4. Waiter “forgetting” your change
Even though this situation is changing, in some clubs, the waiters are known to withhold customers’ change. Sometimes, the waitress or waiter will pretend not to remember that they have your change, and disappear after their shift.
5. That one guy who wants to flex and is ready to fight
This is where it gets really annoying. You go the club, a group of guys start a fight and bottles begin flying in the air. Many revelers end up hurt. I doubt this happens anymore and I have never been caught up in one, but if it still does; shame on those who do this.
6. Waiters serving in mother tongue
Hapa ndio mtu hujua club imebeat! I have seen this in clubs in the outskirts of town but not in Nairobi but you do not want to hear a waiter asking for your order in your mother tongue. Aren’t we living in a cosmopolitan world? Nobody wants to be served in mother tongue; cut it out!
7. Bouncers asking for drinks
It once happened to one of my acquaintances and it was hilarious! Who takes care of the crowd when bouncers decide to drink on the job? Is it even professional? If you get into a club and the bouncer asks for drinks, know that you are in the wrong place.
