A nightclub (also night club, simply club, discothèque or Disco) is a drinking, dancing and entertainment venue which does its primary business after dark. A Nightclub is usually distinguished from bars, pubs or taverns by the inclusion of a dance floor and a DJ booth, where a DJ plays recorded dance and pop music. In the nineteenth century, however, a 'night club' referred to a club whose members met only at night, often at a range of locations, usually for the purpose of drinks, dinner and good conversation.
The music in nightclubs is either live bands or, more commonly, a mix of songs played by a DJ through a powerful PA system. 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.
