15. A DJ who thinks he's a lot, lot better than he is.
16. An official photographer who would take about six terrible photos of you and your mates, which then appear on the club's Facebook page with a massive watermark on them a few days later.
17. Club nights with awful, awful names like "Frat Party Fridays" and "Candyland".
18. A pole in the middle of the dance floor, which probably supports the entire building.

19. Walls that literally drip with sweat.
20. A really depressing smoking area / cage which is usually as busy as the dancefloor.
