Nightclubs are dance venues with live music or music provided by DJs, they often have theme nights.
Nightclubs are also known as a discothèques, or simply a club or disco. This is a type of entertainment venue which usually operates late into the night. A nightclub is generally distinguished from bars, pubs or taverns by the inclusion of a dance floor and a DJ booth or live music. If there is a DJ booth this is where a DJ plays recorded dance, hip hop, rock, reggae and pop music. THere is often a cover charge just to get in the door, or a specific number of drinks that you are required to buy. Most clubs or club nights cater to certain music genres, such as techno, house music, trance, heavy metal, garage, hip hop, salsa, dancehall, Drum and Bass, Dubstep or soca music. Many clubs also promote playing the Top 40 which has most of the night playing the most broadcast songs of the previous week. Many nightclubs choose who can enter, on bases other than just age, e.g. dress code and guest list. This is used to make their status as a nightclub more "exclusive".
