After a long week of being responsible, sometimes you just have to get your closest friends together and head downtown to make some really, really, ridiculously bad choices.
Sure, you'll regret it in the morning and if it's an especially poor choice, you might even regret it for years to come. However, as some poet has probably said, bad decisions make for some hilarious stories.
When you're 80, do you want to look back on your life and remember that time you went to bed at 10pm? Or that time you tried to do parkour over a dumpster in heels and then tried to hit on that paramedic?
That's what I thought. Here are eight great clubs to eat at, drink at, and ruin your life at.
1. Caprice Nightclub // 967 Granville Street
