Excuses for not going to the club

Did your friends ask you out for a night of dancing and drinking and you aren’t sure how to say no? Maybe some coworkers you don’t necessarily like asked you to their favourite club? What’s the best way you can get out of a night of partying without loosing face? 

Whether you hate the clubs your friends choose, or you despise dancing altogether, there are some reasonable explanations to get out of a night of debauchery. So next time someone asks you out on a late one, consider these excuses when you decide not to join your friends at a club or bar. 

Here is a list of excuses for not going to a club: 


  1. You don’t know how to dance.
  2. You’re too old for nightclubs now. 
  3. You have another friend’s party to go to that night and they asked you first. 
  4. You got a urinary tract infection. 
  5. You’re on antibiotics, so you can’t drink.
  6. You have a bad hair day.
  7. The club bathrooms there are disgusting. 
  8. You don’t have any appropriate clothes to wear.
  9. You have bad tinnitus, and loud music makes it worse.
  10. Your kids are having a sleepover and you need to supervise them.
  11. You can’t find a babysitter for your kids last minute. 
  12. You have trouble seeing at nighttime and wouldn’t be able to cope with the flashing lights. 
  13. You couldn’t catch a ride to the club, and it was too far away to use public transit.
  14. You ran out of cash to pay for drinks.
  15. Someone tried to slip something into your drink there and you don’t feel safe going back.
  16. Your ex DJs that club, and it didn’t end well, so you can’t see them.
  17. You hooked up with the bouncer there, and now it’s too awkward to go back.
  18. You were emotionally overcome by how many kittens died when filming the movie Milow and Ottis and couldn’t bring yourself to leave the house.

So, there you have it – some of the best excuses for not going out to the club. If you’re ever in a situation where you really don’t want to go out but feel like you have to, hopefully, this list will give you some inspiration. And, if all else fails, remember that you can always find a new group of less exciting friends.
