Whether you’re in the US, the UK, Europe or elsewhere, you’ll find most people enjoy a good night out. Every weekend, people around the world seize the opportunity to get together with their mates and have a good laugh and maybe a dance before flagging down a taxi at the end of the evening and heading home.

Drinks, dinner and dancing — that’s a typical night out. However, there’s a whole range of ways you can inject some extra style and enjoyment into the evening, from a hilarious twist on bingo to through to making it to your front door safely in luxurious style at the end. Here’s a few suggestions on how you can get away from the ordinary and add something extra to your night.

1.   Kick things off with some bar bingo

A fantastic way to start the evening that will be sure to add some real hilarity to the occasion, bar bingo is a barrel of laughs and a good opportunity to watch the competitive streak come out in your friends.

How does bar bingo work? Well, you know bingo itself works: you enter, receive a card with numbers on it, and strike them off as the caller shouts them out. Bar bingo is similar, only you decide the criteria for calling bingo. These criteria are often sights you’d expect to see on a typical night out — they’re just that predictable. They could be:

  • An event you see, such as “someone spilling their drink everywhere”?
  • A word or phrase you hear – for instance, “vodka and lemon”?
  • “Jukebox”, “quiz machine” or some other typical bar furniture?
  • “Nachos” or another classic night out food staple.

The choices are endless in bar bingo, which is what makes the game so enjoyable. The players should take sneaky shots of the bingo item they’ve scored off to prove they’ve won the game fair and square. The prize? Free drinks from the rest of the group.

2. Have a karaoke competition

After a few drinks, the singer in the group is bound to come out, to the point when you just can’t hold back their inner superstar any longer. That’s the time to head to a karaoke bar and get your jam on.

You don’t have to go to a real competition and win when you can just have your own mini contest with your group, especially when you have a booth all to yourself. The Frankie Valli classic Can’t Take My Eyes Off You might be your go-to karaoke track, but that would be far too easy and predictable. So why not mix things up and make it more competitive by choosing songs for each other? Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush is bound to be a funny one and throw your friends off. Remember, it’s not the winning – it’s the taking part.

Sing your your way to victory and the rest of the group can buy you a well-earned cocktail.

3. Set up a fancy dress theme

If there’s one thing that will put a smile on everyone’s faces when you’re on a night out, it’s a bit of fancy dress. You can make it nice and easy by setting a simple theme so that anyone who’s not into fancy dress can still be part of the fun and not feel too ridiculous.

There are no major rules when it comes to fancy dress, but you should go for something that you’ll feel comfortable in. You’re going to be wearing your outfit the whole evening, and possibly into the early hours, so you don’t want to wear something that will have you sweating all night. Wear a costume that resembles someone or something famous that is instantly recognizable — explaining your outfit to every person you meet will soon get tiresome and tedious, but having them laugh as soon as they realise what or who you are will make the evening all the more satisfying.

Whichever costume or theme you choose, make sure you’re going to enjoy wearing it. Who wants to hang around with a stroppy Super Mario Brother or a whining Wonder Woman?

4.   Go to a nostalgic dance party

Is there a person on the planet who doesn’t like the 80s? Sure, not all of them will confess to it, but deep down they appreciate a well hair-sprayed mullet and the cheesy synth sounds as much as the next person – even if they do keep this fondness on the down-low.

It doesn’t have to be the 80s, of course. The 90s and the noughties both have big tunes reminiscent of the decade. Just watch the cheer go up when the DJ spins a bit of vintage Vanilla Ice or some Spice Girls sass.

There’s also the dress sense. If you’re not donning a superhero outfit or something else within the realm of fancy dress, it’s the perfect occasion to glam up in theme with the era and have a bit of fun. There’s also scope for a bit competition: which one of you can wear the most 80s outfit? You’ll want to both want win and lose that one.

5.   Hire a luxury vehicle

After a superb evening, a lot of people take a taxi home or send for a car on Uber. You can really ramp up the style factor — not to mention everyone’s enjoyment — by hiring a limousine for the evening if it’s a special event. If there’s a big group of you, you may even hire a limo-style bus — these are the business.

Limo services catering for a night out or celebration often have fibre optic lighting fitted as well as a sound system and/or a TV. Hire one for the night using Limo Find and the chauffeur can drive you from place to place safely throughout the evening while you have a good laugh with your friends.

Depending on the company, you can pick the limo colour and select anything from a colourful pink or gleaming white. If you like something classic you could go with a sleek black limo. Make the most of special offers, such as reserving a free bottle of champagne with the booking.

Incorporate the five suggestions above into your night out and you’ll really make it a night to remember. Enjoy the amazing evening ahead, and don’t forget to take those all-important night-out selfies.
