<Sounding like a grandad>
I've reached the point where I no longer have that much fun going clubbing. My hearing isn't 100% and, while not requiring a hearing-aid, it does mean that anywhere where overly-loud music is being played I can't hear a word anyone is saying to me unless they shout directly into my ear, not exactly the nicest sensation. If I order a Becks, I invariably end up with a Metz (I know the solution is to order something else, but I like Becks).
</Sounding like a grandad>

The Vibro-Club would still play music, but at a volume that is easy to talk over. For those who 'just gotta dance', the dance-floor and walls vibrate to the beat of the music so you can still strut your stuff without looking like a total prat dancing out of time (well, no more than normal anyway)

Gig with headphones, no speakers http://www.guardian...273,4278118,00.html
The Aphex Twin recently played a gig in London that was very similar to Rods_Tiger's idea. [vincebowdren, Oct 30 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]

       I think you're ready for tea dances...

       I'll say it again ... these things are NEVER about what I think they're going to be about.

       Rods_Tiger: that sounds like singles night at Borders.
DrBob, Oct 31 2001
  

       Hey, I'm not a newbie, I just don't post many ideas. I admit the title was designed to bait people, 1percent and blissmiss obviously being those that picked up on it.
CoolerKing, Oct 31 2001
  

       Thought it was like 'Fight Club' for ladies. Guess not.
lsenater, Oct 31 2001
  

       Wouldn't that be called "Hair-pulling and Bitch-slap club"?

       [CoolerKing]: I'm with you. Some nights I just don't *want* to partay but would like to go out and listen to music and maybe boogie a little later.   

       I think the best thing here is the under floor massive superwoofer, which if it doesn't exist, bloody well should.

       Vibrating dance floors are baked at dances for the deaf (no I'm not kidding, and I can't find a link either; saw it on tv).

       BM's Vibro club! Cool! (I'd add my favorite male-bashing statement here, if I had one)   

       CK - no verbal or virtual abuse from me, sorry. Blissmiss and I simply honor the age-old tradition of getting to know one another through pillow fights, goosedown attacks and counter-attacks, and general verbal-grenade warfare. You boys do exactly the same thing, from sports bars to the Senate.   

       If BM and I engage in violence, it is *virtual* violence. I wouldn't dare try the other kind; she'd kick my ass into the middle of next week.
1percent, Nov 05 2001
  

       1% - Don't apologise for not verbally abusing me, it's been a long time since I've been flamed so I'm literally out of practice in literally returning fire.   

       DrBob - Literally a great link. If I'm ever in Montreal, I'm literally there!
CoolerKing, Nov 05 2001
  

       One way to equip a nightspot that works out better for 1% is to have many, many loudspeakers at lower volume. The overall effect is strong sound but still able to have a conversation.

       Perhaps a sectioned off area for fist punchers and the like?
ArtVandelay, Nov 07 2001
  

       BM:   

       Two percent of anything is utterly ignorable. One percent, though -- that's a meaningful minority; special, implacable, freakish.   

       I mean, when's the last time you bought 2% milk?   

       As for the invitation-only rumble outside the Vibro Club ... am I correct in expecting something reminiscent of a Jerry Springer classic? I've been practicing my menacing street remarks, so I'm all set.   

       You got to check yourself before you wreck yourself, girl. You betta chill, aaaiiight? I'm not tryin' to hear that.   

       IT'S GO TIME!

       Welcome back. Today on The CoolerKing Show, it's "Another Halfbaker Is Insulting My Alias & I'm Gonna Slap That Beeyatch Sideways Until She Gives Me Back My Man (that always has to be in their somewhere)"   

       Ladies, don't make me have to have Steve get on to the stage and sit between you.
CoolerKing, Nov 08 2001
  

       Not for the first time, Bliss maintains an ethereal presence in the conversation, present yet not present, speaking yet silent. I wish I had a log of all Bliss's deleted anno's - the fact that they aren't there leads me to think they're probably very interesting / inflammatory.
