Holidays and breaks are probably the two words everyone in the world today love to hear, except you’re a zombie. It’s a no-brainer that among the days of the week, the most hated and dreaded is Monday. Having to return to work, school or some other kind of busy lifestyle you’re living. However, as days go by and Friday approaches, there’s finally a feeling of excitement and anticipation again. The weekend is here again to rescue you from the troubles of the modern society, and there’s no better way to blow off steam, meet new and crazy people and create some amazing memories, than to head out and party in a Nightclub. Whatever your flavor happens to be, you can find exactly what you’re looking for at a unique, interesting, and sometimes shocking Nightclub.
You didn’t stumble upon this by accident, and you’re probably looking to find out interesting facts about Nightclubs and nightlife. If this is you, then you’re in the right place. Below are eight interesting facts you didn’t know about Nightclubs:
1. The Star-Spangled Banner Was A Drinking Song
Did you know that the national anthem of the United States of America, “Tune of Star Spangled Banner,” was borrowed from an existing drinking song for a popular gentleman’s club in 1931. Francis Scott Key’s adaptation of a song called “To Anacreon in Heaven” was named the National Anthem of America.
2. Toasting Was Actually a Means to Avoid Being Poisoned
It’s so much fun and seems harmless to clank martini glasses and raise a toast with your companions. However, back in medieval Europe, toasting was a technique meant to “safeguard” a person from poisoning. It is believed that during more aggressive toasting, drinks spill into each other and any attempt to poison your guests could indirectly lead to your death.
3. There’s a Bar That’s Prepared for the Next Zombie Apocalypse
This might be ridiculous because there’s absolutely no way zombies exist. Well, Donny Dirk’s Zombie Den thinks otherwise. The Zombie apocalypse-styled bar is a favorite of many locals and tourists. The bartenders here dress like Shaun from the film Shaun of the Dead, so everybody with cool taste in movies gets a kick out of that.
4. There’s an Underwater Bar in Israel
When you thought you’d seen it all, Red Sea Star is an underwater restaurant and bar located in Israel. Relax, you don’t have to order drinks while wearing a swimsuit. Half of this place is above ground; the other half is completely submerged under water. You can watch fish swim by while you enjoy your drinks.
5. The Legal Drinking Age in the United States is Among the Highest
This might come as a surprise to many, but the 21 year drinking age is probably among the highest that you’ll find in the world. The most surprising part is that there are a lot of countries that don’t even have a minimum drinking age.
6. The Untold Story of “Cocktails”
You must have used the word without even giving thought to how people came up with it. The first theory is from old school cockfights in the backrooms of bars. They feed the Cocks alcohol to get them extra aggressive and reckless before the fight. The second theory suggests that the name cocktail comes from Irish chieftains who would put the tail of a cock into their drinks to show off how classy they were.
7. There is a Bar with Real Life Mermaids
In Sacramento, there’s a bar named ‘Dive Bar,’ and it has actual mermaids swimming around in tanks of water for your entertainment.
8. Britain’s Most Dangerous Bar
Imagine a bar where for every 100,000 people that drink, over 1,230 of them need to be hospitalised by the end of the night. That equals roughly five customers needing to be hospitalized after visiting this place. This is what happens in Blackpool every year.
