I'm going clubbing this Saturday for the first time because I just turned 18 (would've gone earlier if I had a fakey lol)! I need tips on what to do, how to 'talk', what to wear - I know different clubs have different dress codes but which items of clothing make a suitable all rounder? Any other tips and advice welcome! :)

Well I don't know which state your in, but I can tell you about Melbourne which is probably the same everywhere else.
Going clubbing, you have to first figure out the reason for going. Are you going to meet new people, pick up women or dance and have fun? Then know the dress code of the place, usually by going to the club's website, reading their information and looking at the gallery pictures. Dress how you'd normally dress if you can, show your personality, dress up if that's your style and you'll be separated by the boring T-shirt and Jeans look. Keep in mind that you're friends are gonna think something of you for dressing up. But they haven't read this article ;)
When you finally go there and know why you are there, you'll have to stand in line outside for a while. This is for the security gaurd 'bouncers' to tell whether you are intoxicated by watching if you can stand in line, be patient, not fall over, be acting loud and crazy in line and sometimes will have a conversation with you to smell your breath and see if you can hold a conversation. It's illegal for them to let in an intoxicated patron. You'll be scanned by metal dectector to see if you are carrying any dangerous items such as a knife. Once you've been cleared. You're free to go in and pay for entry.
Going in, you'll be HIT by the smell of alcohol and it's going to take you a while to get used to the environment and really get into the 'zone' of the place.
You'll come to find that 90% of males there are there to pick up women and try to get women to grind or dance with them.
I'll tell you what it's like in there. Some places are small some are big. Clubs will generally have a type of music they play and different nights eg Fridays or Sat days can call for different music. Sometimes their will be events held to promote people to go the clubs, such as ladies night (free entry for women). If you're a fan of most pop, RnB and house music, then you should have a problem with enjoying the music.
In there is LOUD, trust me you won't be able to talk to a people without screaming directly into their EAR. So if you're there to meet and get phone numbers, it's rather a challenge but do-able. Just hand over you're phone to her and act like she's suppose to type in her phone number. Another technique is to ask to see her to see phone, make a call to your phone and say thanks for the number. This generally THROWS and SHOCKS most woman off.
Unless you're at a club where most young people go, you'll be surround by people in their 20s-30s.
You better be a dancer or else you're gonna have nothing to do! Most clubs will have podiums like mini stages for people to jump on and be over looking the crowd. I suggest you jump on that straight away and get over the fear!
Now here's my personal take on the whole scene:
Clubs are places I go to only occasionally, it's not a real great place to meet great women as most of them are around you're age and there to get drunk and have fun. Continued..2
