I remember that even years ago we had discussions on my forum about the accelerating decline of clubs. There were many more clubs closing than opening. Largely, this development was driven by online dating. Before the mass adoption of smart phones and the subsequent rise of dating apps, women needed to dress up and go to a club or a bar to get male attention. With online dating, she only needs to open a dating app. Before Covid-19 and the attendant lockdowns, clubs were already not doing very well anymore. You can bet that plenty of clubs and bars have gone bust already due to state-mandated lockdowns, and plenty more will join them. Yet, what do you think will happen once (if?) we open up society again?
I keep hearing that in some parts of the Western world, the Covid lockdowns have caused women to aggressively look for a relationship. This is similar to what they used to do in autumn or winter, when it started to get cold. Suddenly, putting on a slutty mini-skirt and heading off to a club was not longer that attractive due to sub-zero temperatures. Now that we are in the “dark winter” the elites have forced on us and going outside is getting more and more of a hassle, more women want to avoid that and get a boyfriend for convenience. However, other guys tell me that Covid did not change all that much for them as they can still meet women during the day and via dating apps. Anecdotally, women seem to also more strongly react when guys hit on them, I mean in a positive way. This could be a consequence of them not seeing the same amount of men around as they used to so when a reasonably good-looking man shows up and asks them how they are doing, they suddenly get very excited.

Now that we have not been able to go out and socialize for about a year, people have been changing their habits. Sure, in some places there are illegal parties but that is more the exception rather than the rule. In any case, those who want to can still meet women and get laid, and women can still find guys. Thus, the enforced lockdowns may turn out to be the final nail in the coffin of night clubs. They were only ever a middle man. Guys went to clubs to meet women and the other way round, and clubs set up an environment that would make it difficult to meet women because if it was too easy, for instance by playing less loud music, you would of course leave earlier and spend less money.
Due to Covid, the role of clubs as essentially superfluous middle men has been exposed. Clubs will probably not disappear completely. However, I would be very surprised if we did not see significant numbers of club closures and many fewer nighttime options for going out. The new middle men are dating apps, if you need them. Also, amusingly enough, the old tradition of hooking up your friends seems to be enjoying a renaissance. I can’t even remember when the last time was, before Covid, that a woman asked me if I knew of any eligible bachelors I could introduce a friend of hers to. Granted, this is just anecdotal, but I think this is again happening much more often than it used to.
